    Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare - Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50

    Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Reviews

    Very good
    My skin feels smooth and even textured after it’s application. The quality of my skin has improved definitely.
    Not worth the price
    I am quite disappointed for the price. It leaves a white cast and a it's pilling so much that it is peeling off throughout the day. I will definitely not repurchase.
    Excellent sunscreen
    It feels light and at the same time slightly moisturising. Very effective overall. I don't notice the smell at all. Recommend.
    Protection + skincare! The best.
    Love it! Will buy it again. My face is very shinny, especially during the summer (I'm from Greece) and this product made the difference!
    Only one for me
    I can now claim that this is my “Holy Grail” of sunscreens. My skin doesn’t like Silicone or alcohol in products - so this ticks all the boxes for me. I have Indian skin and if applied straight after face cream, it doesn’t leave a white cast. Also doesn’t pile! Only down side is the price, but this tends to last me nearly a year, so it’s not too bad. Would 100% recommend.
    My favorite sunscreen
    This is my favorite SPF and if I could choose, I would always use this one. My skin is sensitive, prone to getting oily but also dry, and this SPF really works for me. I also like the smell a lot, usually I don't like the smell of sunscreens. Feels very hydrating and the bottle has lasted me a long time too!
    Great to protect 'tret face'
    After embarking on my skincare journey, the addition of retinoids and acids have resulted in my face feeling incredibly dry, sensitive and reactive. I have tried countless sunscreens in my quest to find a suitable one and this is the best one yet. This sunscreen doesn't pill, flake or give me application grief. It sits really well under makeup and helps my face to feel moisturised and less tight. I really, really like it! Can't comment on the reduction in my hyperpigmentation yet, but the simple fact that it doesn't burn upon application (the joys of tret face), makes it a winner in my book. Yes, there is some white cast, but two thinner layers help, and that's what foundation is for in my books.
    Great SPF for sensitive skin
    Most chemical SPF products leave me with irritation and sometimes a rash after using them. After learning more about SPF, I learned about the difference between a chemical and a physical SPF. This product is a physical SPF. It does leave you with a little bit of a white cast - just work it into the skin and it will fade plenty. It did not show through my make up nor did it irritate my skin. Would highly recommend it for people with sensitive skin.
    Perfect light sunscreen with added benefit
    I've used this sunscreen for several months now and just love it. It doesn't break my sensitive skin out, feels light and at the same time slightly moisturizing. Although I have dry/combination skin, this on top of a serum is all I need during summer. I haven't noticed that this reverses sun spots, but it has definitely helped to prevent dark patches I used to get. Great product.
    Not for skin of colour
    This leaves a really extreme white cast, and is completely unsuitable for my skin, given that I'm a woman of colour. It is described as creating an "invisible barrier" which is completely misleading. Writing this review so that other people of colour can steer clear!
    I’m in LOVE
    Oily/combo, acne prone skin here with hyperpigmentation. Dark Spot Sun Defense doesn’t make my skin oily, in fact it mattifies it a bit. I’ve also been using it on and off since I’ve received it, and after a few days of usage I do notice that my skin overall is slightly lightened. When I switch to my other sunscreen, my skin is not as bright. I’ve been also been using it under my Too Faced Peach Perfect foundation and it gives it a beautiful base! I love the two together, I think it’d probably work great under other foundations too. I does not break me out, make me sweat, or sit on my skin! I’ve never met a sunscreen like this! I’ll be repurchasing this one for sure!
    Effective sun protection
    I have very uneven skin tone with some large sun spots on my cheeks. My dermatologist has recommended I stay out of the sun but I'm a total sun worshipper! This factor 50 made me feel much more relaxed about being outside and it's protected my face brilliantly. It is white at first but as long as you blend it in I don't find it a problem. A little goes a long way. I then wear make up on top so I've found it a good base. It's not greasy and doesn't make your face sweat more under glasses which is a bonus. Very effective overall. I don't notice the smell at all. Recommend.
    The best
    I have sensitive combination skin and most SPFs make my skin look really oily. This is the best SPF, especially under makeup. It works as a perfect primer for combination skin. And it is perfect for sensitive skin, too. The smell is not fabulous (but also not the worst), but the rest makes up for it.
    Good for porcelain skin
    I am African and my skin is brown and this sunscreen left me with a white, ashy complexion after using it. It’s a waste of money and I would not recommend anyone with melanin to buy this product. If you want to look like Michael Jackson in the Thriller music video (aka. Casket ready) then be my guest. In the words of the esteemed Porsha Williams, “bye Ashy”!
    Best I’ve found (except the smell!)
    I have been on the hunt for a go-to SPF for years. So many feel super greasy or sticky or just generally uncomfortable and heavy on the skin. This one is a lovely texture. I bought it as the reviews said it was good for sensitive skin which my skin is (super sensitive) and it hasn’t broken me out so far. I have medium-light skin in the winter so I don’t notice a white cast. I tan easily so we’ll see if I notice any ashiness over the summer. The only thing I don’t like about it and why I’ve knocked a star off is the smell. To me it’s really awful, this hasn’t been noted by anyone else though so it may just be me. But I feel like it smells of cheesy sick (sorry!) I hate it. It does fade so I get over it quickly!
    Good but...
    It leaves a white ashy film on your skin especially if have medium to darker skin tone.
