This is pure luxury!

By cloudsofwhite

Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

This is the most elegant sunscreen formula. It sinks in to a silky satin finish with no white cast. My skin is tan, about NC37 in MAC, and this sunscreen disappears beautifully. I have used this for 3 weeks now, daily, and not once have I broken out from it or had it leave me greasy looking like the Julep one does. I know it's pricey, but I keep reading that sunscreen protection is the best and most important thing you can do for your skin, so it makes sense to be spendy in this category!

    I have used practically every sunscreen under the sun-- from Shiseido all the way to Algenist. The beauty of this product is that it rubs in well and doesn't leave you looking like a greasy ghost. If you want to stop your age spots frim getting any darker, this is definitely the one you want to get. With proper application and reapplication throughout the day, this small bottle will last you about a good month. Ever since I've discovered this one, I have never looked at any other brand and most likely never will.

          Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

          I do really love this sunscreen, it isn't greasy or heavy, it does not break me out, and it provides effective protection. However, I have combination skin and this product really clings to and emphasises dry areas on my face, which I don't like at all. I'll use until it's gone but probably will not repurchase if I can find one that doesn't do that. I would recommend this product to anyone who doesn't have dry spots on their face.

              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.
