Holy Grail

I have used other Skinmedica SPF products but purchased this one when I started getting chemical peels. This one is made specifically for post procedure skin. I originally tried the the tinted version but I am fair and it made me look orange. The product is lightweight, creamy, and absorbs beautifully. It did not leave any white cast on me and really helps with moisture and soothing sensitive skin. It works amazing under makeup and it does not make me look oily at all during the day. It did not cause any breakouts and I really feel that it helped overall in the healing process after my chemical peels.
