  • Description
Oil-free, paraben free, fragrance-free: three majorly important claims for a consumer looking for a skin product that doesn't cause irritation or breakouts. Want another one? Antioxidant-infused. Antioxidants are key in reducing skin inflammation, and actively works to repair sun and scar damage. But that's not all they do. Antioxidants are frequently used in skincare products because of their ability to firm the skin up and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Powerful stuff. EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum sunscreen SPF 46 contains each of these claims to protect your skin from sun, breakouts, and aging, all in one.

EltaMD is a sunscreen, moisturizer, and acne treatment all in one. But despite its muscle, it's entirely gentle. It's sold in a pump bottle for full control and product placement. Once it's on the skin, it absorbs quickly without the dreaded white cast and residue. No oiliness, no heaviness, no clogged pores.

But this magical sunscreen does even more. Because it dries down so effectively, EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum works beautifully under makeup as a primer. It even has a tinted shade for those with darker complexions. Your makeup will glide over the top with no streaking or clumping.

Even with all this product's added benefits, it's still not quite perfect. The price is a quite steep at $32.50 for 1.7 ounces, that's $19.12 per ounce. It's also not ideal for a day at the pool, as it isn't water resistant. No matter what your day holds, beware of the product around your eyes, as many consumers complain that it burns at the slightest interaction.

It's clear that EltaMD UV Clear is a product with highly diverse talents, and if you're in the market for a product that does it all, it's one of the best contenders. Just avoid water, and you'll find that your skin will be in great shape.

    Eius munere cum no. Alia ridens corpora ea his. Sed etiam ignota eu. Vidisse legendos pro ad, numquam voluptatibus per ut, his quot prompta ad. Ius malis movet ea. Altera dissentiunt ut pro, mundi ignota ad sed.

    Qui an veri illum incorrupte. Cu has assum laboramus gloriatur, mea ea meis ferri definitionem, quod percipit evertitur ad qui. Altera omittam moderatius id vis, at vix quod bonorum dolorum. Ei pro graecis reformidans, nisl percipitur ullamcorper vis eu.
