Whether it’s Winter or Summer, SPF protection is important for myself and my family and that includes my skin care regimen for my face. Sometimes many often overlook the fact that sun protection or SPF is important when it is something you definitely want to be including in your daily skin care routine. Now with so many products on the market today, there is no reason to not take care of your skin and protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Today I share with you a product that I have been using the last couple of weeks. I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of using sunscreen, but I know that it’s so important not only for anti-aging but for your health. The Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50 has been a new friend in my skin care regimen and I’m sharing some information on this product with you.
The Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a triple anti-aging protection for your face and skin. It’s a sheer mineral UVA/UVB protection that enhances the natural skin tone while providing multi-antioxidants to help neutralize environmental damage. Retailing for $42 (50 mL / 1.7 fl oz.), this product is helps to prevent sunburn if used as directed with other sun protection measures and also helps to decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.
Since I use sunscreen daily, I’m always on the hunt for one that will not leave behind a greasy feel or residue or one that makes my skin feel gross. I’ll be honest, after trying so many on the market – there really is only a select handful that I can say will not do that. I also have super sensitive skin, so finding a sunscreen that will not cause me to break out or have a flare up of my skin issues is not easy. Since I have all types of allergies, scents can often cause a problem and finding a fragrance free one is also ideal. Many sunscreens on the market also leave a weird white residue or white cast on my skin because I have darker skin and that can also be an issue. After trying out this sunscreen, I was not only impressed – I was happy and thankful!
This mineral sunscreen is an ultra-fine, transparent formulation that is weightless and blends effortlessly on the skin. You can use this product layered under makeup in your daily skincare routine or used on it’s own to help protect your skin from sun exposure. With a broad spectrum SPF 50, the Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector protects against photo-damage, which is the primary cause of signs of aging. What I love about this product is that it is virtually invisible with a universal tint that smoothes imperfections while helping your natural skin tone appear much more even. With multi-antioxidants like Vitamin E and Lactobionic Acid to help with skin’s natural defense, this product scavenges free radicals brought on by daily environmental aggressors before they can cause premature aging. The PHA/Bionic complex helps to prevent collagen breakdown to help maintain a healthy skin matrix and firmness and helps to prevent the signs of photo-aging such as lines and wrinkles. With a highly purified and concentrated form of Green Tea Extract – it helps to reduce the cell breakdown and helps to protect cellular DNA for healthy skin.
To use the product – you must shake the bottle vigorously for at least 15 seconds before each use. This ensures the products uniformity and consistency. You can apply this sunscreen liberally to the face, neck and other exposed areas, 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. If you are swimming or going to be in the water, you must use a water resistant sunscreen as this is not waterproof and if you are sweating a lot – it’s suggested that you reapply every two hours.

This product is fragrance free (which is a big plus for me) as well as paraben-free and oil free. It is also non-acnegenic and non-comedogenic. Over the years I have found from personal experience that some sunscreens will cause me to break out or affect my sensitive skin. Over the last few weeks of using this product, I didn’t notice any issues or problems occurring with my skin and I love that this product is suitable for all skin types. I have used several different types of products over the last year from Exuviance and I’m always impressed with the line they offer. This product has become a favorite of mine and I would recommend it to anyone. While the price point is a bit hefty for a product that is a bit tiny, it still offers your skin much needed protection that not only works but seems to mesh well with my skin. For a product that didn’t cause my skin to break out or have issues, that’s a benefit all its own.
Finding a product that literally blends into the skin without leaving a trace behind is great for me. I love that it’s transparent and doesn’t leave a weird cast of color on my skin. As it states, this product really is light weight – which is a huge bonus and it feels like air and like nothing is there when I have it on. Initially when using the product for the first time, I did feel like I had something on my face, but after a few days, I really didn’t notice it so I definitely think this product feels great on the skin. I haven’t tried to see if the product gives off a flash back, but after taking several photos over the last month or so and using this product every day – I honestly haven’t noticed anything of the sort so I don’t think it is an issue. I have said this on many occasions for many products, but what may work well for me – may not for others, so with a product like this – you would really have to see how it works for you. Overall – I really like it.
