Instructions: Apply liberally to face, neck and backs of hands, 30 minutes before exposure to the sun. Reapply every 2-3 hours to maintain protection.
Dr. Emery's take: "As many of you have heard me say, good skin care starts with good sun protection. If you need a core daily sunscreen, you won't go wrong with this one. It is the perfect sunscreen for rosacea- or acne-prone skin. The oil-free formula is super lightweight (you'll wonder if it's even there) and, as its name implies, it sets to a residue-free finish that's perfect for wear alone or under makeup. After application, the skin is comfortable, smooth and protected against damage."
Precautions: Topical use only. Apply to test area and wait 24 hours. If irritation develops, discontinue.
