Sunscreen Perfection

By BethyB

from Seattle

Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

I've used tons of sunscreens and this one is hands down the best around. It goes on sooo nicely and doesn't leave my skin greasy or with a white tint. It also wears super nice under makeup. It does have a slight chemical smell but it goes away quickly.

      This is white and feels almost like a light weight serum and sits well under makeup. The only complaint I have is the smell is a little weird but quickly fades once it is rubbed in.

      The best facial sunscreen, and I've tried them all.

      By sunnyJC

      from VA

      Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

      This is better than Murad, Sun Bum, Julep, Alba Botanica, Mychelle, and any of the drugstore sunscreens. The combination of active sunscreen ingredients strikes a perfect balance. It feels "cosmetically elegant" similar to Japanese sunscreens. I am NC35 in MAC and this disappears into my skin tone beautifully. It is not greasy and has no strong pungent odor (the Sun Bum was the worst!). In short, you will not find a better sunscreen. This is truly the Creme de la Creme of facial sunscreens.

        Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

        I am a devotee of Algenist products and use this sunscreen every day - as I have for quite a few years. I have combination skin and shy away from anything that is too greasy. This is so lightweight and has done a great job of protecting my skin. I'm 71 years old with few age spots or wrinkles -- so something is working!

          Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

          Effective sun protection, but I hate how it feels on my skin. I have dry/normal skin and it makes my skin feel SUPER DRY to the the point that it's annoying. This product might be good for someone with oily skin.

          This is pure luxury!

          By cloudsofwhite

          from Towson, MD

          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!

            Comments about Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50:

            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.
