Ask a Question
Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50 by Algenist is a sheer, beautifully textured sun protection fluid that glides on the skin without the heaviness, stickiness or ashiness of more traditional SPF treatments. It protects against both UVA and UVB damage while helping to defer more visible signs of aging with Alguronic Acid and antioxidant-rich botanicals. It's a perfect finishing treatment before makeup application.
Shake bottle well. Apply liberally to entire face in the morning or 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapply at least every 2 hours. Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50 can be used alone or under makeup.

      A little of this provides amazing sun protection during a variety of sweaty or wet sports (hiking, tennis, cycling, sailing, kayaking). I compete in sailing and this product holds up even when I'm out for 4-7 hours on the water. It also holds up well during cardio activities despite heat, sun & sweat.

          Love it. Does the job of protection which is most important. Gives face a satin finish. I put this over my moisturizer in morning. No complaints at all!

              Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

              Been using this for several years now. Have one in every home as I would never want to be without. I read about this sunscreen in a magazine. They said it went on light and didn't mess with the makeup or foundation that you might put on later. They were so right. I love it.

                  This is a lightweight sunscreen that can be used under your foundation or alone. The active ingredients are at a higher concentrate than most other sunscreens. it goes onto the skin smoothly and the white cast disappears after a few minutes. I have always been sensitive to sunburn my entire life. This allows me to be in the sun for numerous hours without blistering. I get compliments on how well my skin looks.
