An ultra-lightweight, fragrance-free SPF 50 moisturiser that provides broad spectrum UV and blue light protection without leaving a white cast on the skin.

Skin concerns: suitable for all skin types

Product Information

Suitable for all skin types and fragrance-free, this multitasking marvel is especially beneficial for oily, sensitive, and mature skin. Offering advanced protection, it serves as a lightweight, anti-ageing moisturiser and primer.

Addressing a common concern of blue light that radiates from all digital devices, SPF 50 moisturiser uses innovative blue light filter technology and together with SPF, it defends against environmental and digital stressors while remaining lightweight and comfortable. This unique formula doubles as a makeup primer, ensuring a smooth base without any white cast.

The combination of Gossypium Herbaceum and Niacinamide forms a powerful duo in skincare. Gossypium Herbaceum, an antioxidant, shields the skin from internal and external stressors like blue light and UV radiation. It hydrates, boosts elasticity, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and soothes redness. Niacinamide complements this by defending against UV and blue light damage, enhancing the skin barrier, reducing inflammation, and minimising pores. Together, they work to improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity for a radiant complexion.

“We couldn't be more delighted to extend our SPF line with a new SPF 50! It's a genuine multitasker, offering full and comprehensive protection, whilst also intensely hydrating, priming, and providing anti-ageing benefits. What truly sets it apart is its innovative blue light protection that effectively blocks the ever-present blue light radiation we are constantly exposed to in our daily lives.” – Shelley Martin, Co-founder SKINICIAN

Do you use the SPF instead of Day Moisturiser?

SPF50 Daily Defence goes beyond, not only offering broad-spectrum but also blue light protection and is suitable for all skin types. Wear it alone for a broader range of cover or consider layering it over your existing SKINICIAN moisturiser that's tailored to a specific skin type and concern, for enhanced protection and additional skincare benefits.

What is the finish of this SPF?

Our SPF 50 has a non-greasy, satin finish perfect for all skin types.

Is moisturiser with SPF 50 enough?

Yes, our moisturiser with SPF 50 provides hydration, protection against UV rays, and safeguards the skin from sun damage.

What is the difference between Moisturiser and SPF?

Moisturisers create a barrier to lock in moisture, while SPF specifically shields against UV rays and sun damage.

Is body SPF 50 too strong for your face?

SPF 50 formulated for the body might be too thick for the delicate facial skin, therefore an SPF 50 designed for the face is optimal. SKINICIAN SPF50 is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin, providing full protection with its calming, soothing, and fragrance-free properties. It's particularly ideal for individuals with a history of melanoma or very fair skin that typically doesn't tan.

Do I need sunscreen if my moisturiser has SPF?

We suggest opting for a higher SPF moisturiser specifically formulated for the face. Layering a heavy sunscreen on top of moisturiser could potentially cause irritation and block pores. If your moisturiser contains SPF 30 and above, it offers sufficient skin protection, combining moisturising benefits with UVA and sun radiation protection.

Is it safe during pregnancy?

Yes, our SPF50 moisturiser is safe for use during pregnancy

Do you need moisturiser and primer?

Moisturiser is required to help hydrate and protect the skin during the day, with the inclusion of SPF the skin is safeguarded against harmful UV rays crucial for skin health and anti-ageing. While primer isn't essential, it aids in creating a flawless makeup base, reducing imperfections and prolonging makeup wear. The SKINICIAN SPF50 offers all-in-one benefits, combining hydration, SPF protection, and primer qualities.
