Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I usually buy the Ren sunscreen but was finding it a bit heavy on my skin so wanted to try something new and I’m so glad I found this . Its a lovely light texture which feels great on my skin ; it doesnt clog my pores or irritate my skin nor does it leave that awful white residue that some spf’s do and it seems to make my skin look fresher. The packaging is good and let’s you get just the right amount of product out. Plus this brand is cruelty free ; what more could you want

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best SPF I’ve found SPF is a constant battle for me - chemical sunscreens irritate my skin without fail (either immediately or after a few days’ use) and physical ones often feel heavy, ashy, greasy and/or drying. This SPF is the most inert (in a good way) that I’ve found - it leaves a bit of shine (but not excessively so) and doesn’t feel drying after being on my skin for a couple of hours. It looks really really thick as you squeeze it out, but it actually absorbs to a very lightweight layer. Not too much of a white cast on me, but then I am fair skinned. I’m not too bothered about the additional ingredients since I use targeted treatments in other steps of my routine, but for me this is worth the price for the fact it is a wearable SPF that I don’t dread applying every morning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SPF Very good every day sunscreen with a lovely SPF50. This product melts into the skin seemlessly and looks good under makeup. I appriciate that it doesn’t have a very sunscreeny smell, so for those people sensitive to smell it won’t irritate you much..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good not great Good Lotion with high spf. Like most physical spf it does leave a slight white film and it is a bit heavy in hot Italian summer days. I don’t know if it works against iperpigmentation, but dr Dennis Gross is a serious brand and I’m sure this product will do what it promises.
