      • Limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My very favorite sunscreen I've tried over 2 dozen facial sunscreens, including those that are 3x as expensive, and this one is by FARmy favorite. (It used to come in a different package, with a blue logo--the packaging has been updated to match the new "EltaMD" product name.) This sunscreen quickly absorbs, doesn't make my face look white, doesn't clump at the base of my whiskers (if I put it on with a 5 o'clock shadow), and leaves my skin feeling moisturized but not greasy or oily. Most importantly, it doesn't make me break out at all. It's part of my daily routine and I HIGHLY recommend trying this one as your first choice, if you're not sure which Elta sunscreen product to start with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy, smooth, moisturizing, quick absorbing I love this facial suncreen. Its the only one ive found that feels good on my skin. Ive been using it everyday for the last several years. Recommended by my dermatologist. It is smooth, creamy, moisturizing and it absorbs well. I love the way my skin feels after using it and face make up goes on smoothly after use. My only complaints is that i wish the company would package this formula in a air tight pump top bottle like some of their other sunscreens. Maybe they dont because the product is pretty thick/creamy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT 4 SENSITIVE SKIN My dermatologist 1st recommended this years ago after I got a 20% TCA Peel. Right from the get go I knew I would love the product. Goes on so light and fluffy, and gives my skin such a moist but non greasy feel. Thanks ELTAMD!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I’ve experimented with several products from this brand, and this I find works best for my sensitive skin. I feel it’s very lightweight and works well under makeup. I don’t notice it leaves a white cast. I’ve found the Elta Clear 46, irritates my skin and causes breakouts after a few days of use, so I tried this one, and I’ve been quite satisfied with the results. I also use the Elta 44 Tinted. I find this formula is hydrating without making your skin look too oily. It is great for skin on the drier side as well. I was very surprised my skin can tolerate this being it is a chemical sunscreen. It contains 7.5% Octinoxate and 7.0% Zinc Oxide.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen ever. Recommended by many bird certified dermatologist. Provides protection for your complexion to shield harmful UVA and UVB from causing damage. It’s fragrance free, it’s includes sodium hyaluronate acid to moisturize your skin while lactic acid refines the skin to clear pores and reduce shine ! They also have a tinted version, which I use sometimes as my foundation! My skin tone has an olive undertone but I tan really easily and it always blends really well ! Highly recommended!
