    • Reapply at least every 2 hours
    • Sun Protection Measures. Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
      • Limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
      • Wear long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses
    • Before use on children under 6 months: Ask a physician

    How to activate pump:

    1. With the cap cover in place over the pump, invert the container upside down and tap firmly 4‐5 times. (This will force the liquid up into the actuator and create a vacuum).
    2. Return the container to its upright position.
    3. Remove the cap, and with the nozzle away from your face, press the pump to dispense the product into your hand. It may take several pumps to completely prime the pump to allow the actuator to deliver product.
    4. If pump continues to fail, try steps again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well On My Dark Skin! I am a medium brown-dark African American, and I was skeptical about using the tinted because it’s much lighter than my skin tone. I also read other reviews where the tinted did not combine well with darker skin tones. I have had no such problem! It blends in really well with my skin and does not give me a white cast or make me light. It looks as though I have foundation on. What I really like about this foundation is that it does not make my face oilier. I have oily skin and, in fact, this sunscreen seems to suppress the shine. I am stuck on this now! Nice, even blend, no oily shine, sunscreen protection = win for me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product out there! I've been using the UV Daily Tinted as a base for almost 2 years now. I like it so much I've replaced my make-up foundation with it and apply a commercial "foundation powder" over it that matches my skin tone exactly. It works beautifully. I am an active middle-aged woman who likes to hike & ski at high altitude. The sun is fierce. Historically, I had SKs and AKs sprayed multiple times a year to remove those unattractive brown spots. In the past 2 years, I've only needed spraying once. The sun damage process has been RADICALLY slowed down by using sunscreen, and I've tried dozens of them on the market today. The eltaMD products are hands-down the best product and value on the market today.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes my skin peel, makeup slide, and skin oily I like the texture and the weight of this, but it makes the sensitive skin under and around my eyes, as well as the skin under my nose, peel. It also doesn't sit well under my makeup so after a few hours of wearing it, my liquid foundation, on top of which I put a setting powder, has shifted and is no longer smooth on my face. My face also seems to be oilier after a few hours of this on my skin than it used to be without using this product. I didn't have any of these problems with my old drugstore moisturizer and sunscreen. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend because I'd feel bad if they had the same problems as me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly redesigned top dispenser I have been using this sunscreen for several years and think the product is just great. However, my two star rating is based on the new design for the top "button" which dispenses the cream. The previous design was perfect -- giving just enough cream to apply to my face and neck with one press of the button. The new top simply spits out a few dribbles each time it is pressed - or sometimes much more comes out than is needed. I'm not even sure it will continue to function properly at all. I vote for a return to the previous design!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tint Stains, Window and Container Size This is an excellent product. I have three recommendations (which I'm sure other users have expressed): 1. The tinted formula stains my shirt collars and cuffs. I know I can switch to the untinted formula, but the subtle tint is nice. Can it be corrected? 2. Could the container be designed with a window so I can tell when it's almost empty and time to reorder? 3. A larger size container would be useful, perhaps 3-5oz.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! Recently, I was diagnosed with cancer and following surgery have had to undergo radiation therapy. My doctors explained that I had to be very careful with what I applied to my skin during and after my treatment, so I looked into a lot of skin care products before I began. Skin that undergoes radiation can often burn and becomes very sensitive. I wanted to let you know that I decided to continue to use a product that I normally use - your EltaMD UV Daily Broad Spectrum 40, primarily because I preferred its quality and texture, but also because this product was what I was most comfortable with during a supremely stressful time. Very few sunscreens are safe to use during radiation, so I was relieved to verify that one that I already felt good about was. I was very diligent about moisturizing well before my daily treatments (cleaning my skin just prior) and applying sunscreen after. In any case, please know that my skin looks great and I fortunately experienced none of the visible side effects people often have when receiving radiation on the face. My cheeks were slightly pink but that quickly faded. Even the doctors were impressed. You have a very good product and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me feel better during a very difficult period.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I especially love this product, the tinted SPF 40. It goes on so easily and evens out the skin tone while giving the excellent sun protection. It also is antiaging containing the hydrolauronic acid and is moisturizing also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best sunscreen I have ever used This is so great, I have sensitive combination skin and this is just so calming and non oily. It is also great under foundation (I use the untinted version) make-up doesn't slide off the skin as often happens with sunscreens.
