A lightweight broad spectrum SPF 15 moisturizer to safeguard skin.

Broad spectrum sunscreens protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns. UVA rays can penetrate deeper into the skin, causing premature aging. Both UVB and UVA rays can cause skin cancer.

A sunscreen’s SPF number indicates its amount of protection from UVB rays. By choosing a broad spectrum sunscreen, you’ll know you are protecting your skin from the risk of early skin aging and skin cancer.

I loved this product for over 10 years. I loved the smell, it never clogs my pores, and I find it an all around perfect moisturizer even for my aging problem skin and it lasted forever. Came here to get a new bottle and found it in a tube with a different formula. I won't buy it until you bring back the old glass bottle and formula. Please let me know when you change it back. Why mess with perfection?

We had to update Sun Diffusing Protector to meet the FDA's new, stricter guidelines for broad spectrum protection and labeling. While the product may feel different, its UVA and UVB protection is actually better than ever. I'm not sure what you don't like about the new formula, but we do have 2 other amazing broad spectrum formulas: our RayDefense SPF 15 and SPF 50 FaceScreen. These formulas also meet the FDA's new standards for UVA/UVB protection, decreasing the risk of both early skin aging and the risk of skin cancer. SPF 50 FaceScreen in particular has the thickest texture of the three and comes in a glass jar. It may be a good option for you to try. It's just a matter of choosing the formula that best meets your personal needs. We hope you'll give it another try.

Am so sorry that you have turned this product that I have used for 15 years into water. I purchased the new and improved and believe me its not. Will look else where for a moisturizing sun scree.

Still not happy with change in bottle / formula

bright starbright starbright stardull stardull star
Like so many of you, I LOVED this product in the glass bottle and different formula. I don't like the product as much as before and I HATE the tube.

I can't get all the product out which is a big issue when we pay a premium for the product. It often OVER delivers and its hard to get it back in the bottle... DISLIKE.

PLEASE try some different packaging.

If you can go back toward the old formula in any way, no one would argue either. It doesn't seem to last as long or go on as well as it used to.

I am sad to say I am looking for other options.

Hi there, I'm sorry you are disappointed with the current packaging of our Sun Diffusing Protector.

I would like to talk to you personally about both sunscreens that you were using. I need to find out more information about both sunscreens that you have. When would it be convenient for me to call you? Please email me your contact information at, and I'll call you at your convenience.
