Skinceuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50

Getting enough SPF protection when you have oily skin can be a challenge.  A lot of it disappears and breaks down, especially in the T Zone during the day .

More and more companies are making lightweight , barely there there sunscreens for face and one of the earliest I tried was Skinceutical's Physical Fusion back in 2011. I still love it.  A new addition this year is Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50.

Physical Matte UV Defense is a thin gel cream that feels creamy out of the tube and initially on but it sets to a  smoothing  matte finish. It adds a very slight tint along with physical SPF 50 ( titanium and zinc oxides).  This feels like nothing on and layers well under makeup and primers and helps to fill in pores. It can be used on it's own too. It helps keep oil at bay some during the day as well with talc and silica in the ingredient list. *Also in there is jojoba oil, so this is not oil free.

Since the humidity is expected to spike beginning tomorrow here, it's the perfect time to put this to good use . Bring on the sun but bring on the sunscreen too. Hope all my US readers have a great Memorial Day holiday weekend .

Skinceuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 is $ 34 at Ulta and
