My dermatologist recommended that I use a mineral sun screen since I have a pretty serious muscle disease that also affects my skin. (Bad rashes, very sensitive to sun light). I’m so glad I found this sun screen. It works so well and it doesn’t break me out or bother my rashes that I have on my neck. This is my second bottle and I will keep repurchasing it.

I may have a favorite sunscreen now.
I wish I had this growing up in California. I’m really sensitive to sunscreens, so it’s been a struggle to find a good one for me. The Defender Sunscreen doesn’t irritate my skin. It goes on like a moisturizer, meaning it isn’t thick or greasy like a typical sunscreen.
It is winter, so I haven’t given it a full test for defending a burn. I’m optimistic based on my experience so far, because I feel like this would be easy to wear everyday, makeup or not, without a second thought.

This is one of the best spfs I’ve tried in a long time. The protection is amazing and also the texture. Light but hydrating. It layers perfectly beneath my primer/makeup and it protects me all day (I do apply spf spray or powder throughout the day) it has helped my skin so much leaving it feel less oily but still full of life.
