I apply this product over my moisturizer during my AM routine. It is very hydrating, does not leave blotchy spots, glides on flawlessly. This is perfect if you hate when products stick into fine lines. Perfect for an "all natural" look, I'm in love!

If you’re looking for a cruelty-free, invisible, grab-and-go type of sunscreen, this is it-literally. It’s so light you won’t even know you have it on, yet it’s packed with the highest concentration of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide…it not only provides UVA and UVB protection, but also defends skin from pollution and both blue and infrared light.
