Best For not being out in the sun, grey-colored skin
I use Re-Nutriv face creams, which do not have any SPF identified on their jars, so I bought this UV Base cream. I used it while on vacation in January on a cruise to Morocco, Madeira, and the Canary Islands. I followed the directions which said to use it on top of the face cream. When adding the UV Base, it looked grey on my skin. I had to massage it into the skin in order to get rid of its grey color. Perhaps because it was therefore applied thinner than I would normally have done, each evening after our excursions, my face would become pink from too much sun. Although I was in the sun more than I'm used to, I was not in the sun the entire day; instead I was on busses or inside shopping, and not roughing it in the wild all day. I would not buy this again.
Best For sun protection and reversing sun damage, alll ages - every day
This is the best ever UV Base I have ever used! I love the SPF 50 factor --great protection! I've used it over my moisturizer alone , and also over moisturizer under foundation. It works fantastic either way! Way to go, EL!
This is a luxuriously scented, gray lotion that spreads easily and is supersheer, it practically disappears. I got a few compliments at work, one from a man, one from a woman. So the radiance must be working. It didn't break me out, isn't greasy, and is pretty fabulous. Yes, of course the price is sad, but you get what you pay for.
By the way, I think the spf is a separate step because the supercremes penetrate like a serum, and spf must sit on top to be effective.
I wouldn't go a day without this product on my face and neck. This is my second tube and I am sold for life. SPF 50 - protecting my skin from UVA and UVB- perfect! This makes the ideal primer for my skin, since it is absorbed within moments of application. And, have had no breakouts or irritation from this product! I hope they never discontinue this product.
A MUST to help keep brown spots & wrinkles at bay!
Best For those who want to help keep sun damage at bay!
This product is lightweight, is neither thick nor greasy, and does not clog pores. Very nice product. It has a light texture, easily spreads, and can be used year around. After cleansing, apply serums, eye creme, moisturizer, Spotlight, Radiant UV Base, then foundation. Also, this product has a light fragrance and does NOT smell like awful chemicals (thank goodness). The tube is very small for the EXPENSIVE price! Beauty tip: In UVA, 'A' stands for 'aging' rays. In UVB, 'B' stands for 'burning' rays! The sun BURNS and AGES your skin! Look around - people who drive have more sun damage on the left side of the face. Collagen and elastin are damaged from the sun burning that side of the face, and it looks OLDER than the right side of the face! Wear this product!
This is the very best sun protective creme I have ever used. It feels like a silky moisture lotion when I first apply it to my face and it is quickly absorbed into the skin. It gives my face a subtle glow and actually I am good to go at this point, along with a bit of lip color and cheek blush. I enjoy fussing a little more with myself so I do apply my EL Renutriv Ultimate Radiance Makeup in the fresco 2C1 shade.
