What are the key ingredients?
Synthetic sunscreen ingredient, provides broad-spectrum sun protection and is one of the most widely used UVA filters in the world.
Mineral sunscreen, effective in providing protection against sun’s UVA rays in addition to UVB rays. Very gentle and therefore suitable for sensitive skin.
Mineral sunscreen, protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and, because of its gentleness, it is excellent for use on sensitive, redness-prone skin.
What makes the Defense Essential Glow Moisturizer SPF 30 different from other Paula's Choice day creams?
In addition to offering mineral sun protection, Defense Essential Glow Moisturizer contains a unique blend of antioxidants specially chosen to counter the harmful effects of environmental pollution and blue light. This day cream has a silky texture and is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
I thought Paula said sunscreens rated above SPF 30 weren't needed—SPF 30 is enough, right?
For the most part, SPF 30 is sufficient. But there are two reasons why you may want to consider a higher SPF. Many dermatologists feel that a higher SPF is necessary because most people don't apply sunscreen liberally, and when there is a higher concentration of sunscreen active ingredients (as would be the case in a sunscreen with a higher SPF number) you would be getting better protection even if you didn't apply it liberally. The other reason to consider a higher SPF is if you want to stay in the sun for even longer periods of time and have very fair to light skin color. Although Paula has spoken out against the fact that other companies offer sunscreens with oftentimes ridiculously high SPF ratings (such as SPF 70 or 100), the issue has always been that such products tend to give consumers a false sense of security. They erroneously believe that a higher SPF only needs to be applied once as they spend the day in the sun. That is not the case for any sunscreen number. A sunscreen rated SPF 30 or above provides longer but not better protection. That means you can stay in the sun longer before your skin shows signs of turning color, but does not negate the need to reapply every two hours after periods of swimming, perspiring, or toweling off. We suggest our Extra Care Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50 for those who will be spending several hours outdoors and/or engaging in water-based activities. Liberal application and routine re-application is necessary in order to maintain the high level of sun protection.
How often do I need to reapply Lipscreen SPF 50?
It depends on how long you’ll be in the sun and how long it lasts on your lips, which is based on what else you apply over it (like lipstick) or if it comes off after eating. If you will be in direct sunlight, it can last for several hours but be sure to reapply once it begins to wear off.
Will Lipscreen SPF 50 leave a white cast?
No this lipscreen will not leave a white cast. This lip balm with sunscreen does not contain mineral actives of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, both of which, depending on the formula, can leave a white cast on lips.
