I'm looking for a good sunscreen for the summer. I'm thinking of purchasing the Urban Environment Oil-free UV Protector for my face. When do I apply this on my face? Before my moisturizer or after? or can I use it along to moisturize my face. Thank you!

Asked by: Joyce
Sunscreen is always the last step in your morning skincare routine. If you put anything over it you are blocking the sunscreen's effectiveness. Always put sunscreen on last.

I just bought the Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 and I love it, but I have been wearing it alone. I'd like to use it with moisturizer, but I use an oil to moisturize. Will the oil break down this formula if I layer them?

Hi, this product is designed to be compatible with other products, including oil-based formulas. Just be sure to apply Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 evenly over whatever moisturizer you choose.

Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my holy grail product for sunscreens. I have oily skin so I've always had trouble with sunscreens making me breakout (esp around the forehead) in the past. Not only does this sunscreen not cause me to break out, but I feel like it prevents breakouts as well since it protects my skin not only from the sun's UV rays but also from everyday dirt and dust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this and off the bat was super impressed. I did not pay full price for it but I would because it doubles as a sunscreen and a primer. The scent is hardly noticeable and the way it sits underneath my makeup is well worth the price! It did have that sunscreen look when first applied but once blended it disappears. Im happy with this and I saw a noticeable difference in the way my skin looked after using it. I finally found a great face sunscreen! I would definitely recommend! Its creamy and not oily and super easy to apply. Its also a great size for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesnt leave my face super greasy but keeps it moisturized enough I even wear it under makeup I will definitely repurchase when I run out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun protection without the breakout. This sunscreen is leaves my face feeling almost the same without sunscreen which is awesome while still being protected

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It has a light thin water consistency and does a good job protecting against any sun burn. It does however mattify away any moisturizer underneath, and the tiny container is used up quickly if youre applying the correct amount. No real benefits outside of sun protection and if you want to look washed out. Ive found Korean sunscreens that work as well but are far cheaper and not as drying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this product. I do with that there was less fragrance, but after applying makeup the scent fades. Does the job. Protects my face to help keep me look youthful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Im super picky with sunscreen because I despise that sticky feeling most sunscreens have. I also hate that sunscreens leave a residue and it doesnt seem to absorb into the skin well. However, this sunscreen did neither. Its super easy to use. You just shake the bottle before use and its very liquid-y. I just dab some onto sections of my skin and tap it into the skin for absorption. It doesnt leave any sticky residue and it gets absorbed into the skin really easily. There is almost no scent unlike many sunscreens. It really is the best sunscreen for those that are sensitive to texture and scent. Must have item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this sunscreen. It is however pricey but I think its a good investment. It does not leave my face oily and heavy like most sunscreen do.
