"This product is not greasy and it smells so good, and if it protected me hiking in the Swiss Alps, then it has to be good."
Love this sunscreen my favorite
Very light, not greasy at all. Have been using for 3 years. One tube lasts all season as I don’t have to use much but still am protected from the sunspots I am prone to.
This sunscreen feels wonderful, is easy to apply, and absorbs instantly. Would highly recommend it for others.
Best spf cream I have ever used.
At first the sunscreen looked a little funky (it's tinted, feels slightly sticky on your fingers), but after using it for the past ~week I've grown to love it. I've battled cystic acne and clogged pores my whole life (almost 30 now), and this sunscreen doesn't make me breakout or greasy. Works really well with my other non-Luzern products as well. Definitely worth it!
Great coverage without being greasy or heavy! 15 percent zinc oxide! The Force de vie I am trying for the first time. I love that products come in travel sizes to be able to try.
I got a sample of this with the order of the essence I bought last month-I packed it with me for my trip to Switzerland, and I used it while there and not a single red spot on my face, no burn at all- Now the rest of my body got a lot of sun while hiking, like I had been at a beach resort, but my face only had a slight bronze look, normal but nothing on my face was red- I put this over my moisturizer and had no issues, now my foundations did have SPF in them as well, but I was up at 9,000 ft in elevations and the rest of me would get a little red then tan later but my face never got red, just a soft brown-So I am ordering a full sized version, being I am going to Santa Fe NM to go hiking next month-Growing up in Florida I was bad and never used SPF, hated the feel of it on my face, and I just get brown, but now I try and use SPF but still strike out at a lot of them, even the $$$$ ones- This product is not greasy and it smells so good, and if it protected me hiking in the Swiss Alps, then it has to be good-

100% MINERAL SUNSCREEN provides UVA/UVB protection with outstanding skin transparency: Zinc oxide is the most broad-spectrum UV filter available, protecting from the far end of the UVB spectrum to the far end of the UVA spectrum.
ZINC OXCIDE protects skin against damage caused by free radicals generated by blue-light. Blue-light from both natural light and man-made light emitted from computers, televisions, and smart phone screens, passes the skin membrane causing skin damage similar to that caused by UV rays, such as wrinkles and age spots.
VITAMIN C + VITAMIN E for antioxidant synergy: Vitamin C provides photoprotection, and works even better in conjunction with vitamin E, which potentiates the action of vitamin C four-fold. Vitamin C and vitamin E synergistically limit chronic UV damage by significantly reducing both cell apoptosis and thymine dimer formation.
BIO-SUISSE ORGANIC EDELWEISS, BUDDLEJA DAVIDII and THYMUS VULGARIS EXTRACTS reduce oxidative stress from pollution and ozone-generated free radicals that can damage and dull the skin.
HYALURONIC ACID and PANTHENOL (Vitamin B5) keep surface skin hydrated so it stays feeling firm and supple.
VITAMIN C AND ORGANIC LICORICE EXTRACT for a brighter-looking skin tone: help prevent UVB-induced pigmentation and inhibits tyrosinase activity, melanin synthesis and superoxide anion production, without affecting DNA synthesis.
POLYPHENOLS from ORGANIC GREEN TEA and ORGANIC GINGER EXTRACTS provide anti-glycation + anti-MMP protection: UV-induced glycation and MMP (Matrix metalloproteinase) destroy collagen and elastin, leading to loss of elasticity, increased wrinkles and skin dullness. Polyphenols strongly inhibit this damage to help stop the loss of elasticity and firmness.
