Stay worry-free in the sun with this do-it-all Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizing Spray. Silky smooth, super blendable, and uber-hydrating, Protect UV sunscreen spray helps shield the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, which can damage the complexion and lead to early signs of aging. Covering skin in a fine, lightweight mist, this nourishing sunscreen infused with Niacinamide, D-Trehalose and green tea extract effortlessly blends into the skin without the unwanted white cast. Gentle enough to use on both the face and body, the vitamin-rich formula helps protect skin against environmental stressors, like pollution, and is free of alcohol and pore-clogging oils. Protect UV’s natural finish makes it a quintessential choice for everyday use and is perfect for all skin types.

Not as good as the old formula
I was really hoping that this would be as good as Reflect (the old formulation of this product), but it wasn’t. Protect is thicker and also has an odor—smells a bit like Chapstick. Its thickness allows you to use less product (which is good), but it also leaves my skin greasier (which is not good). I’ve used it a few times now and am still on the fence about it. I really want to like it more, but I’m afraid it just doesn’t measure up to Reflect. Sad.

Hi Leann! We're so sorry Protect UV isn't working for you! Last year we learned that the formula of Reflect contained a raw material that was no longer available. Our team of chemists made the very difficult decision to discontinue the product, as there was not anything we could replace the ingredient with that lived up to our strict, clean standards. Thank you so much for your review on this new formula, though—we always take our customer's feedback seriously! Please note that we do have a generous 30-day return policy if you would like to return your product. Please reach out to our customer service team at 1-800-676-9522 and they will be more than happy to help! Thank you for being a COSMEDIX customer and for trusting us with your skin.

I love the texture
It absorbs in the skin right away and doesn’t leave chalky looks like other brands with spf. I would recommend to anyone. My family loves it, and will continue use it. This is the only spf we use.

It is not oily, which is great for my combination skin. Great protection from elements. My skins looks great.

The best all around protection
I love this sunscreen. It's not harsh on the skin and the application is flawless. This formula absorbs very quickly and leaves your skin protected and hydrated.

Protect UV
I used this sunscreen for years. Very lightweight and easy to reapply being in a spray. Doesn't discolour your skin and absorbs easily, veil like.

Easiest way to apply spf!
This is by far my favorite way to apply an SPF! It’s so easy, you shake it and spray it. I keep it in my bag and can reapply throughout the day.

Really Disappointed
After using Cosmedix Reflect for years, I was disappointed to hear that it was being discontinued, but was told that Protect UV was its replacement and was very similar. However, I couldn't disagree more. Protect UV feels sticky, like I have glue on my face and leaves a white film. It also makes my skin itchy. I am very much hoping Reflect will come back.

Perfect to enhance skin tone
I was waiting for months for this to be released again after Reflect was discontinued. A few things I noticed are that it is a thicker consistency than Reflect, so you need less product as it spreads well and blends quickly, but you do need to put a bit more effort into blending it than you did with Reflect.
If I was to apply more than one layer, I’d have a white cast.
Still, it covers nicely and I feel protected wearing it.
I also noticed when removing it that my skin tone did appear more even, and that was only after one use.
I recommended Reflect to many and I will also recommend this. Nothing about it that I don’t like, although I did find Reflect, once again, easier and quicker to apply. Still a fantastic product with beautiful skin benefits.

So refreshing
Love this product! I’ve been looking for a product with SPF I could add before my makeup and reapply later in the day. This is definitely it! It’s not heavy like most sunscreens and it has a light floral sent. It’s also amazing for a makeup-free day.

Easy, hydrating, and effective
As a facial sunscreen, this is a really effective product. I am glad the directions specifically state to spray into your hands before applying to your face because honestly, the spray would be a bit too harsh to put directly onto your face. If you are to looking use this product underneath makeup, you really need to give it at least 20 minutes to let the product sink in otherwise it will mess with the regular application of your foundation and such. That being said, it also can’t double as a primer. Once you figure out how to work it into your everyday routine, it really is a great way to add a daily facial SPF!
