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.

    Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

    My favorite sunscreen. I was looking for a mostly physical sunscreen ( due to most chemical sunscreen ingredients being irritating) that sat well under make-up. This is fantastic; the zinc oxide percentage is great protection against UVA and UVB rays. It absorbs in seconds and leaves no white cast ot greasy feeling. I have dry skin most of the time, and also use retinols so this was perfect protection. It looks phenomenal under make-up both liquid and powder. The bottle looked small at first, but using after generous application on my face almost everyday my first bottle lasted for months! I would highly suggest this for anyone.

        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.

                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.
