SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50
High protection sunscreens can be challenging for combination and oily skin types. Enhanced sebum levels due to heat and sun exposure exacerbate this concern by increasing surface oil and shine.
Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 is specifically formulated with oil-absorbing powders to provide a uniform, smooth, and mattified finish with broad-spectrum UV protection. Enhanced with aerated silica technology to maintain a matte finish even in hot, humid conditions. Its weightless mousse texture dries the powder finish, optimizing makeup application.
Tested in high humidity and significantly reduces the appearance of surface oil and sweat.

This is by far the best sunscreen I’ve ever used. It’s not heavy and oily! My sensitive skin loves it!!
I bought the matte defense spf by skinceuticals and I love it! I didn’t think I would as I bought this because my regular spf was not available. It’s a thicker formulation but it matti does your skin so you don’t have the slick shiny face a couple of hours later. I like how it has a tint as well. Blends easier with your skin. It doesn’t leave a sticky film either so that’s another thing I like about it. Have already repurchase!
I've been using this for a few years and I really like how light it is on my face. I do recommend
It’s a nice formula and blends well. Can have a white cast if applied too thickly.
The great serum for any age, got my order in 5 day highly recommend it
It's the best there is on the market, it has been the gold standard in vitamin c for 20 years
