Amazing

By Jay

Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

I have oily skin and have searched high and low for a moisturizer that gives my skin the nourishment it needs without leaving any greasy residue and this does just that! It has a somewhat thick, mouse-like consistency so you don't need a lot of product, along with a distinct smell which may be overwhelming for some people, though it does go away shortly after being applied. It's great to use as a primer under makeup because it fills in pores and fine lines. The reason this is one of my favorite moisturizers however, is because it keeps my face matte all day, with or without makeup, and for someone with oily skin, that can be difficult to achieve. This is a great product overall, but I would not recommend it to people with dry skin, as it may dry them out even more. However, if you have oily / combination skin, you'll love it!

Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

I really wanted to like this but it was not effective for what I wanted it for. I have very dry skin and it dried me out worse. The price is really quite awful and I saw no effect from use. The only pro I can give it is it does have a blurring affect.

Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

Thick, fluffy consistency, little goes along way. It smells great, like skittles. Made my skin velvety soft and it helped blur imperfections. Sadly, it made dry patches even worse (chin area, sides of my nose). Another issue was formula's pink tint. It doesn't dry clear and leaves white cast behind like sunscreens. I have medium tan complexion, so it was very noticeable on me. I returned product. Would buy again if formula improved because Algenist makes great products.

    Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

    This product may be the singular most unique moisturizer on the market, and trust me I've tried a lot. The consistency is almost like a mousse (very fluffy and airy) and soaks into the skin with a subtle glow. Add the fact that is blurs lines and imperfections (yes!) and has an SPF (yes!) and can be used instead of primer. My skin feels nourished but not heavy and makeup applies evenly and smoothly. Try this...you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

    I first got this product as a sample and loved it! As soon as the sample ran out I went and got a full size jar. It is more than I usually spend on moisturizer, but the sun protection and fine line blurring are so good that I have stopped using much else on my face (like primer or base) except a little powder.

    I live in Texas where the sun is brutal, but have found that as long as I have this on, my face is protected. It even stays on during mid-day walks outside when the humidity is high. I will continue to use this product for as long as it is available!

            Holy Grail moisturizer of all time! Where has the amazing moisturizer been all of my life?! It's perfect in every way. It has an impressive blurring benefit. It feels like a primer and moisturizer in that it is incredibly lightweight and absolutely disappears into my skin. My skin tends to be on the oily to normal skin type. It gives me a radiant look to my skin without any shine. Love Love Love
