I've tried & tested more than a dozen different sunscreens over the past couple of years, and Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50 has emerged the definitive winner of the bunch! I'm just about done with my first tube (3 oz; full size), which I opened on May 8th. (I've been using it every single day on my face, neck and décolleté; I use a separate sunscreen for backs of hands and other exposed areas like arms and tops of feet). What I appreciate most about this product is its consistency, which I find to be ideal for my particular skin type (normal/bordering on oily). It's not overly thick, nor is it too fluid (runny = messy). It has a lovely, almost silky, texture: lightweight, creamy-smooth and non-greasy (which I love, having tried and been disappointed by other sunscreens that have what can only be described as a heavy 'waxy' feel. This sunscreen feels luxurious on the skin and allows it to 'breathe.' I've actually started looking forward to my morning skin care routine ever since I began using this lotion. I use Rx tretinoin gel nightly, so I require a facial screen with a high level of broad-spectrum protection, and preferably one that contains zinc oxide at a minimum of 6%. (This one has 10.5%.) In my experience, sunscreens with over 7% zinc oxide tend to leave my skin with a reflective (shiny) whitish blue-gray appearance. This, however, doesn't. The Obagi Sun Shield leaves my complexion looking its usual color. I use it in place of a daily facial moisturizer and in no way does this make my face feel tight, dry, or otherwise uncomfortable. I use the requisite amount of one-half teaspoon to cover the aforementioned areas, which I apply a minute or so following my vitamin C serum.Read more ›

It layers well under make-up, tends not to "roll" when you apply products over it. More-suited for oilier skins. Obagi SPF 35 is better suited for drier skin types.

I received what is called "Obagi" sunblock (same packaging as what I use). Previoulsy I have obtained Obagi sunblock from my dermatologist and have used it for many years. I still have the original product left for comparison. What I received from 101 medical Spa is NOT the same product. I have very sensitive skin and Obagi "the original" I have no problems with. The product that arrived packaged in the Obagi box does NOT have the same consistency, smell, and feeling as the one I got from my dermatologist. I checked the expiration date--product should be good but it is not. Furthermore, it BURNS my skin. As I said, I am very sensitive to sunblock and that is why I use Obagi or Shiseido rather than drugstore brands (which work fine for most people). This sunblock felt like the cheaper sunblocks that my face reacts to. I don't think it is the original product. No wonder it is much lower cost that the typical price. I read another customer review questioning whether this was fake. I would not trust what you get from this vendor. If I had no experience with Obagi--I may not know the difference but I do!!!!

I have used many different sunscreens, but they have predictably caused breakouts and left a shiny, greasy film on my face. Obagi is a godsend: it's a no-nonsense sunscreen that delivers. My skin is acne-prone and very sensitive, yet I have not had one pimple after using Obagi.

For my face, I use an amount that's about the size of a raspberry. I apply it using smooth strokes, and I haven't had the problem of the sunscreen balling up as some reviewers mentioned. At first you may see a whitish cast, but this will blend in immediately. The best part: my skin stays matte. I've even used make-up over Obagi and it goes on smoothly. I'd go so far as to say that this sunscreen even acts like a primer.

As another reviewer mentioned, when out in the sun for a few hours be sure to reapply this. I was on a 2 hour bike ride today and had put my sunscreen on two hours prior to leaving. My face is slightly tanned tonight (I'm olive skinned). I would recommend reapplying every 2 hours.

Absolutely LOVE this product. I honestly haven't found a better product for my face. My skin is what would be considered "normal" but can run a bit oily but this product is just creamy enough - not drying and not oily. The real bonus is the SPF 50 WITH the zinc oxide. Perfect if you want to total coverage/blockage - for face or elsewhere.

I like Obagi Products. I used the other Sun Shield for a while but I have oily skin and I wanted a sun screen with a matte finish. This product does exactly what I wanted. I'm African American, mid thirties, use skin lightening products and I have hyper-pigmentation so I need to wear sunscreen daily. This doesn't clog pores and I haven't experienced ANY side effects from wearing it. I highly recommend this product!

Its ok. If you are looking for something to wear everyday under your makeup and you like your skin to look glowy this is not for you. It has a matte finish which I dont particuarly like, But I will be wearing this at the beach or when I dont put makeup on, because it does provide excellent protection.
