What It Is:

This lightweight, multi-benefit formula provides a high level of broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and creates the perfect canvas for makeup, too.

Who It's For:

All skin types and anyone looking for a quickly absorbing formula to smooth skin's surface—without pilling or rolling—so it's ideal for layering.

Why It's Different:

Packed with Caffeine and Algae Extract to promote even, healthy-looking skin while fending off the sun's damaging rays and dark spot formation. Plus, water-binding ingredients provide hydration (translation: the appearance of fine, dry lines is reduced).

How To Use:

Recommended for daily use to prepare skin for the smoothest makeup application. Apply in the morning to just-cleansed skin or over moisturizer, avoiding eye area.

The greatest sunscreen in existence, in my opinion. It functions as a light moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen all in one and is perfect under makeup. I wear it every day for it’s amazingly high SPF rating and beautiful use. Doesn’t break me out, smells nice, and makes me glow. There is literally nothing not to love.

I have very sensitive skin and have been searching for an spf. I have sensitive skin with tendencies to break out in eczema if I try the wrong product. I've tried almost everything from cheap to expensive. This is the first one my face likes!! I don't know if this works well as a primer, cause I use this for the SPF. I dont get too oily with this either. However if I'm wearing make up, I'll put on a primer after this. Typically, I wear this underneath my tinted moisturizer. Like this product so much that I stock up every time the bobbi brown website has a sale.

love the texture of this product! It was moisturizing without feeling too heavy and the white color didn't leave a film on my skin. I thought it was a great product and I have sensitive skin so it was gentle enough for me.

was hesitant to purchase the SPF 50 Protective Face Base because of the
cost. However, after the first use, I was sold. It has a light feel,
goes on easily, is quickly absorbed, leaves no white "ghost face," and
is wonderful as a foundation base. It is gentle on my skin.. I get lots
of compliments. I couldn't ask for a better sunscreen...and I've tried
many. This is it for me. I'm entirely satisfied. One comment to Bobbi
Brown: You have this product listed in the face make-up section, but you
might also want to list it in the beach and/or skin sections. I had a
difficult time finding it for reorder and finally entered "SPF 50" in
the search bar and it came up. Love it!!

I don't know how I missed out on this champ until now. I live in CA where the sun is always kissing our faces - I always feel the need of a good strong spf base dream. Especially the days on beach - I tend to get rashes from the sun rays if not covered with a good sunscreen- this base is a dream- it provides protection and also allows you to wear makeup over - what else would any girl want? I absolutely love it- a little bit on the pricier side but totally worth it, bobbibrown never fail to impress !

I’ve used this on and off for a while. I like how it feels on my skin and it doesn’t make me feel oily. The smell is pleasant and my face doesn’t burn when I wear it. My face can burn in as little as 10 minutes so sunscreen is a must.
The price point is a bit high which is why I gave it 4 stars. I think similar coverage, feel, and absorption is available at a lower price point. This is a luxury for sure.

There is nothing better than knowing that you skin is well protected from the sun. This particular product is one of the best I have used.  It is light weight and does not feel like an oily mess.  This is better than I had expected!  I would recommend this to others!

This product is to die for! I apply it before makeup and sometimes I use it just as a moisturizer because it hydrates my face without making it sticky. It soaks into the skin fast and makes your foundation look flawless.

I love to keep this in my beach bag and throw it on whenever I'm out in the sun. It's easy to rub in and doesn't leave streaky marks. Anything with spf in it is a great product for me as I live near the beach!

Really good face mist! I don't really use Bobbi brown items, but I decided to try this one out. It's light, and doesn't feel like anything. Definitely worth the price and to at least check it out sometime!
