Urban Defense Complexion Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Item #: 2502534 Size: 1.0

It DOES exist...a completely clear sunscreen that feels amazing, won't interfere with your makeup, and smoothes your complexion for better application. Urban Defense Complexion Primer by Urban Decay will put an end to your search for a sunscreen that you'll actually WANT to put on. Those with oily skin will be blown away - finally, sun protection that doesn't feel like a mask!

Tired of searching for a sunscreen that would protect her skin without leaving any stickiness or white cast, Wende decided to create her own. Like a force field, this crystal-clear primer feels like nothing you've ever tried and protects your skin from whatever the day throws at you. SPF 30 guards against the sun, and UD's invisible-on-the-skin formula doesn't leave a trace. Urban Defense not only protects, but also primes and smoothes skin as it minimizes the look of pores - so makeup applies better and lasts all day.

This hydrating gel formula contains conditioning ingredients like sesame seed extract, tomato fruit extract, squalane and bisabolol (derived from the Brazilian candeia tree).

In a clinical study of Urban Defense Complexion Primer, immediately after use:*
  • 96% of participants had a reduction in pore visibility.
  • 100% had smoother-looking skin.
  • 100% had more even-toned skin.

*Based on clinical grading in a 31-person study.

Urban Defense Complexion Primer comes in a luxurious clear bottle with a metallized gunmetal cap and base, and is even equipped with an airless pump - so it's easy to get out every last bit of product.
To use, apply a liberal amount all over your face before foundation or powder. Planning to be out in the sun for a long time? Because the formula is clear, you can also reapply throughout the day as needed.
Isododecane, Isohexadecane, Dimethicone/Bis-Isobutyl PPG-20 Crosspolymer, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylyl Methicone, Silica Silylate, Bisabolol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract, Tocopherol.

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Urban Defense Complexion Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

    Living in Florida, I have constant sun exposure whether I like it or not, so having a primer with a decent SPF is a blessing. The usual sunscreen smell fades super quickly and blends easily with my usual liquid foundation.

          I use this product alone to smooth my skin and apply SPF coverage. This product goes on so smooth and doesn't leave my skin looking greasy. I will be buying again.

          i got this product thinking it would double as a primer and sunscreen. i got this product mid-february and after 3-4 weeks i noticed a major change in my skin. i started getting hundreds of tiny whiteheads popping up on my temples and forehead. i was devastated considering i payed so much for it. it's now july and i still haven't cleared up the breakouts it caused me.

              I normally use Hangover Rx primer since I have normal to dry skin. However, I needed a primer with SPF for the summer. I decided to try this out and let me tell you that I do not regret it!

              It is easy to apply and instantly my skin feels and looks smoother. I have used three different foundations and each one has looked flawless on top of this primer. Makeup lasts all day too. Definitely recommend this to everyone.
