Rated 5 out of 5 by SkincareLover A desert island product
I was really unsure whether to order this product as it is very expensive for a primer. For years, I used MAC's Prep and Prime SPF 50 (I don't bother with anything less than SPF 50) and I used to say it was my desert island product, I loved it so much. I loved it for two reasons - it had the desired SPF and it had an extremely good mattifying effect which I loved as I have oily skin. That was until they changed the formula and my last bottle I purchased left me with a face looking like a frying pan! Thanks for the heads up, MAC...Great SPF, if you have extremely dry skin! So, reluctantly I ordered this Ultra Sun Protection primer. And I absolutely love it! More than I ever loved my MAC one :) it leaves my skin looking smooth, refined and generally a lot more beautiful! My husband told me to stop looking at myself - but I can't stop, I am so pleased with it. My oily skin is under control all day and my make up and blusher stay in place. Due to the tiny amount needed when applying and it's watery consistency, it is bound to last me a long time. An investment - yes, but worth every penny! I guess, it's my new desert island product :)

This works well for sun-protection. However at such a high price I would have expected a pump for better delivery of the product.
It is so thin and runny - even after a vigorous shake - that I have to 'catch' it on my fingertips and quickly slap it on my face before it runs through them. Not ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beads Expensive but so worth it
This gives very high sun protection in a brilliant form. The fluid is easy to apply, just be aware it comes out of the tube really quickly and you do need to shake it first. It absorbs quickly, leaving a matte appearance without the shine or white tint that is so common with high protection. It is in fact an excellent primer, good enough to use on its own or as base for your make up. Sun protection is often too oily to apply make up over. I have to wear high protection everyday, this is for me, a miracle product.
