Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 - Review

What The Product Says:
Cetaphil Defense has been specially formulated for those in dermatological treatment, thanks to its protection against UVA and UVB rays responsible for sunburn and skin cancer.

Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 comes in a squeeze-tube with a screw cap. It works as both a moisturizer and sunscreen. It feels very light on the skin and absorbs quickly. Tho it does leave my face a bit dewy (not greasy) but I like that. The best part is it does not leave a white cast like most sunscreens do. It has a medicinal smell that doesn't linger. The SPF is pretty good too.

It is moisturizing enough in summers and so I start with my makeup right after applying this but in winters you might want to slather a layer of moisturizer as it won't be sufficient. It does not irritate me and never broke me out.

It might feel heavy if you have a very oily skin but nothing a pressed powder couldn't fix. The trick is to apply the sunscreen at least half an hour before stepping out and 15 minutes before starting your makeup. This way it gets enough time to be fully absorbed. I have combination skin, so I do find it a bit shiny, but I always powder before leaving the house anyway and that solves the issue for me.

Overall, I am very happy with it! On my no makeup days, I apply Cetaphil sunscreen, set it with powder to keep shine at bay and my face looks nice and fresh. It really keeps my skin clear. It is a bit pricey for the amount tho but looking at all the benefits I really don't mind buying it. Plus you can always carry it with you.
