Instant Radiance Sun Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Glow! I love this new tinted sunscreen! I purchased the medium/dark shade and it gives me a beautiful sheer luminous hint of tan glow. It is virtually odorless (which I prefer) and the color is great. I only need a few dots on forehead, cheeks, jawline. For me it works excellent as a foundation as I prefer tinted moisturizer over anything heavier. This is even a better product than Dr. Gross's former Tinted Moisturizer that I used to use which they discontinued (which was more matte and slightly heavier). This will be a definite repurchase for me. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Radiant and light but I was very excited for this product since i have always been a fan of their tinted moisturizer and then the cc creams but the low spf protection was not the best. The new instant radiance sun defense spf 40. Feels great snd gives a smooth finish. However if you have oily skin you might not like the radience finish as it could be mistaken with shinny oils. Also the only two options for colors can make it a bit difficult for mixed Fitzpatrick skin tones. I love mine and since i use it under makeup works fantastic for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad replacement for CC cream and tinted moisturizer I have been a dedicated Dr. Dennis Gross/MD Skincare customer for many years. I love the CC cream (medium) and the tinted moisturizer before that. The coverage was light (I don't like heavy coverage or foundations) and the product left a warm, light, effervescence which I loved. I was encouraged to try this new instant radiance sun defense, and bought it last week. I am very disappointed by it. It goes on like you would expect a sun screen to, and my skin looked flat and dry, not bright and radiant like with the cc cream. I am now going to try the Perricone "not foundation" products. Let me add that I still use other Dr. gross products, but am deeply disappointed that a product that I have used and depended on for many years is now completely unusable for me. Why fix something that isn't broken?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sheer Coverage! This product is similar to an SPF tinted moisturizer that I used to purchase from Dr. Gross's skincare line. This has a great SPF, needful as my skin's sensitivity has changed. It goes on beautifully after using the alpha beta peel and has perfect coverage while still looking sheer. The color blends in naturally. My skin is radiant and healthy-looking. I use a translucent, colorless powder lightly on my T-zone and am ready for the world!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good coverage... I have used this product for many years and was worried it would be changed too much, especially when the word "radiance" is used. Fortunately it's still great. Radience in a product can really make older skin look bad. Love my Dr.Dennis!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun-kissed coverage! This is my second purchase of this product and I absolutely love it! It makes my skin look so even and smooth with a hint of a sun-kissed tan! It feels so great going on without a thick, heavy feel. I would recommend it to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!!! I've been using the tinted sunscreen for about 3 weeks now and love it! I was concerned that it would be thick like most sunscreens but it isn't. It rubs in well and gives a nice dewy finish. I've even put powder bronzer on top and it doesn't cake or ball up. I highly recommend this product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my skin! I'm so glad that I bought this. It works very well with the rest of the products that I use from this company. My skin is looking better every day. It covers well and gives me the sunscreen protection that I must have. I look very healthy when I am wearing this.
