I absolutely love this product. I’ve tried other SPFs, but they were too oily. This one is so nice and light with a tint that gives my skin a nice glow and keeps it protected. For the first time ever, I stopped wearing makeup.

    Sheer Defense

    I am extremely acne prone and I really enjoy this sunscreen. It's hard to find one that doesn't break me out. I know it's so great to wear but I used to avoid sunscreen due to breakouts but this is great

    Yay!

    I have always avoided using face sunscreens because it makes me so oily and usually break out. This is so nice, doesn’t leave any white but also doesn’t leave you feeling oily or heavy under makeup. I’m a fan!

    Favorite SPF Product!!

    My friend turned me on to SkinPharm products, then she furthermore convinced me to try the SPF product. I love Sheer & Clear defense.... Sheer is awesome because the brown tint of the sunscreen ads a nice glow to your skin and is super light going on. (I actually called SkinPharm corporate and a super nice employee helped explain the differences before I purchased.)

    You will not want to use any other sunscreen products on your face after trying this! (Yes gentlemen - these products are great for men too!)
