I always wear sunscreen when I’m going outside. Always. With my fair complexion, I will turn bright red and peel after a very short amount of time in the sun. Peeling sunburn is not comfortable or attractive especially when it’s on your face.

Sunscreen for your Face

I do not like putting traditional sunscreen on my face. It tends to leave my skin feeling greasy and when my face perspires (which it does in the hot weather), the sunscreen is just not effective.  That means I either suffer with a continuously greasy feeling face or I get burned. Not any more. I have found a sunscreen for your face that is oil free and uses a dry formula. I was sent this product for review.

SmartShields oil free, dry formula means that the sunscreen gets absorbed instantly. It doesn’t sit on top of your skin and look greasy. It bonds to your skin. Plus, there is no noticeable sunscreen feel even after using it several times. You simply apply it 15 minutes before going out in the sun and then reapply after you spend 80 minutes swimming or sweating or every two hours.

I love knowing that this provides UVA/UVB protection and is an SPF45. It’s clean and oil free plus it’s great for use under your make-up. Regular use of this product may help to prevent cancer, wrinkles and premature skin aging. I am very happy that it is paraben free and absorbs free radicals. I always look for beauty products that are free of parabens. SmartShield is hypoallergenic, safe for all skin types and dermatologist-approved.

I tried the SmartShield Rehydrating Face Cream this weekend when I was out working in the garden. I was able to use it underneath my make-up with no problems at all. I could apply my foundation and the rest of my make-up easily. The SmartShield Rehydrating Face Cream comes in a small pump container so it’s the perfect size to toss in my make-up bag or my beach bag.

If you’re looking for sunscreen for your face that you can wear with make-up and without any greasy feeling, I recommend you try SmartShield Rehydrating Face Cream.


  1. Great post. I so believe in wearing sunscreen on your face. Moving to Florida, I will need to wear it everyday for sure! 🙂


  2. This sounds absolutely terrific! I am currently using the Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen for Face and it has been great but it’s always fun and nice to try something new! 🙂

  3. This sounds super nice. I am a HUGE sunscreen wearer and totally think this sounds great. I have been using la roche-posay and love it. But may need to try this. 

  4. I like that this is paraben free and goes well without getting too greasy. Big plus!

  5. I love that companies are starting to release face specific sunscreens! I could never put regular sunscreen on my face without breaking out right after and I know how important it is to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays but I also hate trying to fight with acne LOL

  6. we use a lot of sunscreen down here in the south and we have to be very careful what we use . Looks like a nice product!

  7. I wear sunscreen everyday! It helps to have it built in to an everyday face product!


  8. Ohhhhhh I’m super picky about facial sunscreen, will need to check this out!

  9. This looks like a great product.

  10. I will have to try this brand out. I cannot stand to leave the house without sunscreen and prefer oil free formulas.

  11. this brand is new to me but it sounds great!

  12. I usually make sure to just use foundations or primers with built-in sunscreen. However, it’s good to know that their are products meant specifically for your face.

  13. I’m always looking for new sunscreens. I’ll have to check out this line!
