UVB exposure causes redness or burning, while UVA exposure causes skin darkening/pigmentation. Protection from both UVA and UVB means this product provides Broad Spectrum protection. Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 provides Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (UVB protection) and PA+++ (UVA protection).
The PA rating system measures the level of protection from UVA rays, which are known to cause pigment darkening in the skin. It measures the amount of time a product would protect your skin from darkening.
The following shows how much protection each PA score provides compared to unprotected skin. If your unprotected skin normally darkens/pigments after 5 min of UVA exposure:
|PA Rating||Level of Protection||# of minutes protected before experiencing skin darkening/pigmentation|
|PA+||2-4 times||10-20 minutes|
|PA++||4-8 times||20-40 minutes|
|PA+++||8-16 times||40-80 minutes|
|PA++++||>16 times||>80 minutes|
Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 has a PA+++ rating.
EnviroScreen™ Technology is proprietary to Colorescience®. EnviroScreen™ Technology uses patented active ingredients, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, that create a barrier preventing free radical formation and oxidative stress. These patented actives are combined with specialty ingredients that, together, work synergistically to protect skin from damage caused by exposure to UVA/UVB rays, pollution, blue light (also known as High Energy Visible, or HEV, light), and infrared radiation.
Colorescience® follows the FDA guidelines for testing water resistance or adherence to the skin after exposure to water. A panel of 10 people apply the product to their skin prior to being immersed in a whirlpool (of moving or circulating water) for 20-minute cycles. After 20 minutes in the whirlpool, panelists exit the whirlpool before immersing themselves again. For 40 minutes water resistance, panelists are immersed in the water for two 20-minute cycles. For 80 minutes water resistance, this is done a total of 4 times. After all cycles are completed, the SPF that is remaining on the skin is measured. If after 80 minutes in the whirlpool, the SPF remaining is at least 50, the result is an SPF 50 with 80 minutes of water resistance.
We measure our pollution protection by directly measuring free radicals created from UV + pollution events on unprotected skin and skin protected with Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50. We use a testing technique called electron spin resonance (ESR) that uses a combination of a magnetic field and electron magnetic waves to directly detect the unpaired electrons of free radicals.
Blue (HEV) light protection is tested by measuring the ability of the formula to block light in the HEV spectrum that would otherwise reach the skin. In practice, this is done by applying the formula to a transparent substrate at the same dose level (2mg/cm2) used in the FDA Monograph SPF test. The substrate is then placed at the entrance of an integrating sphere detector which captures all the light passing through the sample. This configuration is the same as that used in the FDA Monograph Critical Wavelength measurement and mimics the situation of a formula applied to the skin. The percentage of HEV light blocked is calculated by comparing the intensity of the light transmitted through the formula to the incident light at each wavelength throughout the HEV spectrum (400–490 nm).
Apply Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 15 minutes before exposure to environmental aggressors. Like all SPF products, reapply every 2 hours. For convenient all-day reapplication on-the-go or directly over makeup, use the Total Protection™ Brush-on Shield SPF 50.
If applied once daily as recommended, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 will last approximately 90 days.

Unlike any other SunscreenI hate how greasy and thick other sunscreens are, which usually turns me off from using sunscreen. However, Face shield's formula is so thin, you don’t even feel it on your skin which is perfect. It’s non-greasy but somehow gives a beautiful glow without looking oily. Definitely a daily necessity.
Amazing!!I love how light this feels on my face!!
NO STICKY OR TACKY FEELINGI bought this product because of the SPF protection for an upcoming trip. It amazed me how light it feels on my skin. No sunburn using this product and my skin looks radiant wearing it. Thank you Colorescience for this great product!
Impressive hydrationWhat a difference this Face Shield makes! So much more hydrating than I expected. Pleased to see the difference.
THE BESTSuch a lightweight feeling and perfect light coverage!
Not greasy or whiteThis is the first non-chemical sunscreen that doesn't leave me looking like an oily ghost. Very natural looking and love the total protection.
Great productI use this product everyday and I am totally satisfied with its performance
My favorite face sunscreenI will not go a day without this sunscreen! It’s absolutely the best!
Fantastic!I live in the Southwest so sunscreen is a definite must! I absolutely love the tint in this sunscreen, it lives up to its universal promise and looks great. The niacinamide is great and leaves my skin shiny and polished.
The BestI have tried so many physical sunscreen. None could compare to Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50. It's moisturizing. It makes my skin glow. It does give my skin a slightly paler color but it evens my skin tone out nicely with a warm peachy tint. I've never tried it with foundation, so I do not know if it goes well with that. But this tint is enough to hide the blemishes on my face. I look forward to applying sunscreen everyday now. Thanks Colorescience!
Better than ordinary sunscreenThis was applied by my esthetician after a treatment and it made my face glow. I mix it with Even Up and it makes my skin look better and also protects with SPF! Great product! Will buy again!
My new holy grailThis sunscreen is THE absolute holy grail of daily sunscreen. It has everything I am looking for in a sunscreen: 1) zinc 2) water resistance (for when I get a little sweaty or go to the gym), 3) dimethicone is not one of the first ingredients, 4) has the blue light blocking (even though who knows if this is even a real thing!) 5) has antioxidants and niacinimide! 6) lightweight and satin finish! I've been looking for a lightweight sunscreen that also has all the good benefits and makes my skin look beautiful--is that too much to ask!? :)
SPF Made Easy!Great Product! I’m very fair skinned, so this can take the place of a foundation, but can also be used on darker skins. Will buy again!
LightweightLove the feel of this cream.
So smooth!Goes on smoothly, and doesn't sting. Provides great sun protection. What's not to love?!
Great ProductThis sunscreen goes on nicely and blends in wonderfully!
Doesn't make me break out!I love this sunscreen! It dries well and makeup can easily be applied over top of it. Most of all.... it doesn't make me breakout! I have fair skin and the light color of the product is not a problem for me. This is definitely my new go-to sunscreen.
Love this!Got this as a gift! Goes on easy and lightweight. Love it!
Face ShieldProtect the delicate skin on your face! 50 SPF! A must have for summer!
The best sunscreenI love my face shield! It's light weight and a little goes a long way. Also, it smells great!
Good for active lifestyleI use this when going hiking or outdoor use. I solely where this and it looks great on your skin. It evens out your time and gives you an amazing glow. I like the blue light protection also that’s a plus.
The Best SunscreenI put this on in the morning and did not even reapply while in Arizona sun all day. Protected my skin all day!
Great sunscreenThis doesn't show even on my super pale skin! I love this because I put it on before work and don't have to reapply sunscreen until going to walk at lunch. It goes on easy and doesn't leave my face looking greasy or settle into my pores or fine lines.
My only issue is that by the evening, it makes my eyes burn. I almost sent it back but I cannot find another product that doesn't make my eyes burn and doesn't make my skin greasy. I'm not sure what ingredient causes me issues, but I wash my face as soon as the sun goes down and start feeling better. This was the only change in my skin routine and I tried it several times, many days apart so I know it's this, I just don't know why. But it is not the only mineral sunscreen product that does this, so it must be an ingredient in many product.
Strong protectionGlowy finish, light texture
Another winnerJust another wonderful product to have in your arsenal of protection against sun damage and premature aging. The product is light but makes your skin feel amazing. Good job Colorescience.
Go-to!Sunforgettable Face Shield is my “must” before going outside everyday. I use it on my face & hands with confidence that I am getting the needed protection from sun damage. I look forward to using it without hesitation!
My absolute favorite facial sunscreen!I love this sunscreen! It goes on smoothly, has no scent, and I can’t even tell it is there after a few minutes. There is no whitening of my skin. As a hiker, skier, and paddle boarder, I love that it does not sting my eyes. I also love that I can touch it up with the SPF 50 brush throughout the day.
Best one ever!I have tried several mineral tinted sunscreens and this is the best one. Worth every penny! So happy with my purchase!
Smooth and lightI love this sunscreen for my face! Smooth and matte. Not greasy or shiny. I give the bottle a good shake and the liquid seems to become powder on my face. Makeup goes on top with no issues!
Works greatOne of my favorite products. Light tint with high SPF. Makes it easy to get ready and stay protected!
FinallyI love to have a moisturizer that does what it is supposed to do.
Lightweight and doesn’t turn skin orangeLightweight, practically invisible. I love it!
Love itGreat for sensitive skin. Does not irritate. Very practical
Great color and protectionA lot of sunscreen products either turn my skin white or orange. I am writing a review to help others like myself with pale skin and pink undertones. This is perfect. I also use the powder SPF on top (I love that product as well). Powder is a little expensive, but so convenient! Buy both!!!
I like itThe medspa used this on me after a treatment and it made my skin glow. I mix it with the Even Up and it gives me a silky smother look.
Sunforgettable UV shield SPF 50 Face ShieldLove this product! I have been using this for the last 3 months and love it!! I have medium tone skin and the tint blends beautifully. Will continue to purchase. Just wish it was a little less expensive.
Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50I use this product daily. It’ a good tint/color for light-medium skin.
ExcellentI love this new sunscreen! It leaves my skin looking perfect, no white casts.
Nice sunscreenI used this product when I traveled to Hawaii. It is a small bottle, so good for travel. It goes on smoothly and no tan for me. (which means no sun damage.)
Great SunscreenAt first, I was worried the tint was going to be too dark for my very pale skin, but it blends in very nicely. I almost feel like I don't even need a foundation afterwards. Very nice!
New Formula is amazing!The new formula is simply amazing! It's very hydrating, moisturizing and feel great on my face. It's the best!
SunscreenNot greasy or sticky. No white cast. Goes on smooth under makeup.
Thank you!By far the best! I have sensitive skin and this does not irritate it. It works very well and I am glad my sister got this for me.
Best sunscreen!I have very sensitive skin and been looking for the right sunscreen - and this is it. I love it.
Perfect protection!I love this face shield product! It truly spreads on nicely and feels light. It has no smell to it either, which is important to me. Love it!
Love itThe face shield is the best...
Lightweight and silky.It's really good if you are looking for a light coverage and SPF and the same time. I have some acne scars ans also breakouts every once in a while, and I feel like it's covering both of them nicely, without the heavy feeling that regular foundation has on my skin. When I do need more coverage, I use the pressed foundation on top of this product and they work beautifully together.
The bestI love it.
Amazing Product!I am new to using Colorescience products and this is the first product I purchased from them. I follow some dermatologists on Instagram and they always mention Colorescience products in their Instastories. I must say that I am in LOVE with this product! I have sensitive skin and other products I have used that have SPF in them have caused my face to look red and blotchy. Not this, though! I have been wearing this face shield for almost three weeks now and my skin is loving it! I actually look forward to wearing this and knowing that my skin is protected makes me love it even more! This product has a permanent place in my daily skin care regimen!
PERFECT if it has more shadesI can't say enough about how happy I was when I found out about this sunscreen. I have sensitive, combination oily/normal, and acne-prone skin. This year I had large breakouts and my dermatologist advised me to use physical sunscreen. It's difficult for my skin type to find a sunscreen that is purely physical sunscreen, fragrance free, oil free, alcohol free, paraben free, and not cause breakout. This is it! The only thing I wish is that it has more shades. Being Asian, the pink color does not look good on me. It dulls my skin stone and looks greyer than it actually is. Overall, I'm quite happy, but if it had a suitable skin tone for me, I will stop seeking any other sunscreens!
Great!!Great protection with perfect coverage!!
Sunforgettable brushI love to reapply with this brush.
just the BEST!Flawless coverage and perfect protection all in one product! Apply it and forget about it, as it won’t streak or come off while swimming or playing your favorite sport or activity of the summer!
Love it!It is such a lightweight silky feel! Definitely my favorite and easy to layer under my Sunforgettable brush!
Very happy with this product.I really like this sunscreen because it is lightweight and with just a hint of color- I really hate that "white" face you get when you use typical sunscreen without putting make-up over it.
So glad I decided to try.Before I used the skinceuticals liquid sun screen and I liked it a lot but this one is 10 times better.
Gorgeous illuminationThis product is my new go-to for every day use. It is like a BB cream with just a hint of color that evenly spreads onto my very pale skin making it look luminous! You can't even see the color difference on my skin it is so subtle and beautiful.
A Great Face SunscreenLove this product for use on my face. It is gentle and goes on well, and very easy to apply make up over it.
The BestI have used Colorescience Sunforgettable in the past. I love it! It is lightweight, leaves no heavy, greasy feeling on your skin. It offers a great level of sun protection. Love the tinted color so that I can use it without makeup!
Great productSo much better than chemical sunscreen, no burning
Super protection!My 8 year old has super sensitive skin to breakout and no other sunscreens seem to prevent irritation but this has been WONDERFUL!!! We have been using it daily and it’s withstood pool, beach, and sweat like a champ! It blends in beautifully and a little goes a long way!!! We love it!!!
Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50Glides on smooth.
Great productI have been using the face shield for about 1 month now, and have noticed a difference. My face is more clear and i dont have to apply as much powder. Highly recommend for daily use.
Luminous!I have gotten so many compliments and Head turns since wearing this product. I moisturize, put this on, and then apply powder (sunforgettable)- mascara and lip gloss!
Favorite sunscreenMy favorite sunscreen! I’m fair, live at 7,600 feet above sea level in the mountains, so I need a great sunscreen. This product is my favorite save my skin sunscreen. Has a bit of color that evens out my complexion which is a bonus. Not greasy. Not itchy. Great price too
Great SPF for faceI have sensitive, acne prone skin. I am very happy with the consistency of this, and how this soaks into my skin. There is no white residue, and this has not caused me any issues.
Blends NicelyThis is silky and blends well into the skin. I use this over a good moisturizer. Make sure you let your moisturizer "set in," before using this sunscreen.
Updated formulaProtects your skin from many things other brands do not. Buy it!
lip shinesLove them
EVEN -UPLove it!!
