Ultra Light Daily Defense SPF50 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 168.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Staple Both my partner and I have different skin issues but both have very sensitive skin. This is a product that we both can use. Its slim packaging makes it easy for me to slip in his bag to reapply when he does his sports outdoors. It is moisturizing and does the trick. I like that is is unisex so a man isn't put off by carrying it around or using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good! One of my favorite sunscreens, doesn't feel greasy or heavy and doesn't leave much of a whitecast. Today I think there are other better options on the market, like the ones from K-beauty, that leave no whitecast at all, but this is still a good option. I totally recommend it!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stings my eyes This is the worst SPF I've used for stinging my eyes. I initially thought it was the eye cream I was using but I used this to jog a few times and it's definitely this. I think the texture is nice and runny which makes it spreadable on the skin but the packaging is not fit for this so a lot spills out all at once, and even though the product is spreadable it still pills and leaves a noticeable white cast on my olive skin. Impossible to reapply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SPF I like this SPF very much. It is very comfortable and moisturising, not greasy on my normal skin. I have no problem using it under makeup. It does not make my skin oily. It has PA++++ which is a plus for me. 60ml is more than enough for one nordic summer. I would purchase it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Underwhelming SPF with Tricky Packaging I bought this in my search for an SPF more readily available than my holy grail Thank You Farmer Water Tint. Unfortunately this is not the one. This may be fine if you have relatively calm or dryer skin. Yet my skin reacted to this upon first application and although this went away after a minute, the SPF has a noticeable feeling on the skin once it dries and pills if you reapply. Not good enough for the money. I recommend Thank You Farmer or the Glossier SPF for those looking for better alternatives for sensitive skin. I must note as well that the packaging is truly pants. The product runs out and coats the entire inside of the lid which makes for a bit of a mess unless careful.
