Best sunscreen ever created

I think so!! I’ve been looking for the right sunscreen and I am so freaking happy banish came out with one. I’m already obsessed with every other product. I knew this sunscreen would be the one. Thank you banish!!!

*Valeria Ortega
Love the formula and I love the ingredients even more!!

All of the ingredients are non-toxic and mostly natural, it goes smoothly on my skin, and it doesn’t wear badly with my make up

*Carmen Griffith

I adore this product! This is the best mineral sunscreen I have found. It blends into the skin like a dream, while being hydrating and protecting.

*Sarah Baus
Smooth, effective, and undetectable

This is possibly the best facial sunscreen I have ever tried. It is great for sensitive or irritated skin, and it blends into nothing. I love the way my skin looks after I put it on and it is great to protect my skin in the summer sun.

Great For Oily Skin

This is the first sunscreen that doesn’t feel oily or produce more oil on my skin. I love the matte finish and how light it feels on my skin.


This sunscreen is a god send, I haven’t come across any other sunscreen with a similar consistency that works so well on acne prone skin. The consistency is similar to a moisturiser, rather than being too liquidy or sticky or gel like. It absorbs into the skin so easily and doesn’t leave behind any white cast. Works really well under make up as a base, does not dry my skin out as the day goes on. I’ve used a few other sunscreens before which were recommend for acne prone skin and meant to be non-pore clogging (La Roche Posay and Heliocare for example) and they don’t come close to quality and suitability like this one. With other sunscreens under make up they would dry my face out, leaving my make up to form a dry/cracked effect, but this doesn’t happen with The Defender. Thrilled to have found this, particularly being a mineral based sunscreen and will be purchasing again. I find 2 pumps does my whole face so has lasted for ages!
