It's a perfect finishing treatment before makeup application.

    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.

        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.
