"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."
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-
This is a great sunscreen.I use it everyday.It goes on well, not heavy, and you can tell it has quality ingredients.
You seriously can't get better than Luzern La Defense Sunscreen!Perfect size to travel with, and the smell isn't like your typical sunblock. It's dreamy and refreshing on the skin.
This is an amazing anti-aging cream/sunblock combo.....it has the best high quality ingredients to protect the skin from free radicals, along with components that with help with the production of collagen and the most important factor is that it uses zinc oxide as the sunblock....the most essential skincare product for all ages and all skin types is SUNBLOCK, and this product is a multitasker.
The La Defense Mineral Sunscreen worked so well for me! I first tried it a few weeks ago when I was in Florida and it was great! it helped me keep my skin hydrated while also protecting against harmful UV rays. It also feels so fresh on my skin, unlike other sunscreens that do not feel as clean.
Non greasy and gentle. Works well as a base for my make up

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.
