Stay sun safe and guard against photo-aging including dark spots, and fine lines and wrinkles, with all-physical UV protection. Free from chemical filters, this lotion is safe and effective. This can be worn daily as a way to decrease the risk of skin cancer. NYC dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross created a Mela-C Defense Complex featuring melatonin, vitamin E and three forms of vitamin C to fight free-radical damage and protect skin from oxidative stress. Consider this high-protection SPF 50 formula your first defense against photo-aging and sun damage.
How To Use
Apply daily in the morning, starting with clean, dry skin.
Apply liberally over face, neck, and décolleté 15 minutes prior to sun exposure.
Massage until the formula melts into skin and disappears. Reapply every two hours.
For children 6 months and younger, consult a doctor.
If you're seeing sunspots, age spots, or freckles, you need to rethink your sun protection. These brown spots are an indicator you're not protected. Up your SPF levels or find a formula you will wear every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased this product a month ago and have used it every single day since I received it. I put it on over a Dr Gross serum and sometimes I put foundation or other make up over it. It goes on easily, absorbs quickly and doesn't feel greasy. I have several dark-ish spots on my face that have been well protected from the sun and even faded a bit as a result of using this product. I love it and will continue to use it daily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good daily sunscreen My only complaint with this light oil free sunscreen moisturizer is that it goes on very white and stays that way until I put something over it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best facial sunscreen i have been using the Dr Gross Sun Defense screen for over a year now. Hands down, this is the best one I have used. It goes on sheer and does not leave any residue and my skin feels great and I feel fully protected. I re-apply once, twice, sometimes three times throughout the day and it still does not feel heavy. The research I have done on the chemicals I want to avoid do not seem to be in this product- even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen for my face I've been using this daily for 2 years. I have melasma and any sun exposure makes the spots get darker. This does not may me oily and I do not feel like I'm wearing sunscreen. I can't feel it at all. It does not make me break out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, I would buy it again! I loved the way it felt on my skin - nourishing, and that it is SPF 50. It did diminish my dark spots some over the summer, but not a lot. It counteracted the sun's effects this summer. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sunscreen! Great for those hot summer! I thought this sunscreen is overpriced, but I think it's totally worth it. It goes on without looking greasy and does not make me look pale like a ghost. I like it a lot more than I've thought. Spreads easily also. Great for those hot summer days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent suncare I originally got a sample of it before buying the full size, and I'm glad I did. It's already made a difference for my skin after only one week of using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! The only sunscreen I've tried that does not cause breakouts. Seems great for sensitive skin. Absorbs quickly, brightens skin and is not greasy.
