Exvuviance says "this weightless fluid blends effortlessly on clean skin, or layered under makeup in a daily skincare routine. Broad spectrum SPF 50 protects against photodamage, the primary cause of signs of aging. An ultra-fine transparent mineral sunscreen in a virtually invisible universal tint smoothes imperfections and helps natural skin tone appear more even. Multi-Antioxidants Vitamin E and Lactobionic Acid fortify skin’s natural defense, scavenging free radicals brought on by daily environmental aggressors before they can cause premature aging. A PHA/Bionic complex helps prevent collagen breakdown to maintain a healthy skin matrix and firmness, and helps prevent signs of photoaging such as lines and wrinkles. A highly purified and concentrated form of Green Tea Extract reduces cell breakdown and helps protect cellular DNA for healthy skin. PA++++ highest level of UVA protection. Suitable for all skin types." This tinted sunscreen contains 1.7 fl oz (50ml) and retails for $42 on NeoStrata's website, Ulta, or Dermstore. Exuviance does not test their product on animals. This product was made in the USA.
Exuviance's Sheer Daily Protector has a fairly standard formula with a couple ingredients worth noting. This mineral sunscreen contains 7% titanium dioxide and 6% zinc oxide, which provide broad spectrum SPF 50 PA++++ protection, which is more than adequate for day to day wear! Aside from having the highest possible efficacy rating, this sunscreen also contains a handful of vitamins, and two forms of polyhydroxy (PHA) acids for gentle exfoliation. This sunscreen is fragrance free, and doesn't contain any truly problematic ingredients - all around a great formula.
Exuviance's Sheer Daily Protector is fantastic! This tinted sunscreen provides excellent, high level sun protection in a lightly tinted, easy to apply formula - I'd go so far as to call it an ideal daily sunscreen, especially if you're on the go! I recommend the Sheer Daily Protector for all skin types (provided you're not sensitive to mineral sunscreens), for use on it's own, or to supplement moisturizers with little or no SPF built in. I'm headed to Sydney soon and you better believe Exuviance's Sheer Daily Protector will be in my bag!
