Gentle, anti-aging sunscreen lotion that leaves no whiteness behind / 1.7 oz
Luzern's La Defense SPF 30 Urban Protect Mineral Sunscreen, formerly known simply as La Defense SPF 30, is easily our favorite sunscreen. (There, we did it: We picked our favorite child.) And we like it even more now that it's been upgraded with a tiny but very helpful change — Luzern has added a key ingredient, lutein, to help further protect against the blue light emitted from computer and phone screens.
This lightweight, totally transparent lotion feels so good that you'll look forward to wearing it every day, smells so good that you might be tempted to eat it, and provides major anti-aging benefits, too. Its incredibly strong UVA/UVB protection comes in the form of zinc oxide (a whopping 15%), and it's also packed with a host of goodies to fight aging and dark spots. Contains Vitamins C & E for antioxidant protection; organic green tea and ginger polyphenols to boost collagen and elastin; organic licorice to prevent pigmentation and brighten skin tone; organic edelweiss, buddleja davidii, and thymus vulgaris to fight free radicals; and a power trio of hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and L-Arginine to keep skin hydrated and supple. And it's great for all skin types and conditions, including acne, rosacea, and eczema.
Even — especially — our uber-sensitive-skinned testers found it soothing and, quite simply, stellar. Try it, and you'll see why we wanted to be the first retailer to snap it up. It's perfect.
PS That Jolly Rancher-like scent comes from cucumber oil.
*NOTE: Luzern has just changed the packaging of this product back to the squeeze tube that some of you may remember from years past. It's a little easier to get the product out of the squeeze tube, so it's a great change (back). We're updating the photograph soon but wanted to let you know about this so you aren't surprised when you open your package.*
How to Use
- Lutein protects skin against damage caused by free radicals generated by blue llight. (Blue light — from both natural light and man-made light emitted from computers, televisions, and smart phone screens — causes skin damage similar to that caused by UV rays, such as wrinkles and age spots.)
- Vitamins C & E work synergistically to limit chronic UV damage
- Organic Edelweiss, Buddleja davidii, and Thymus vulgaris extracts fight against pollution and ozone-generated free radicals
