This ultra-lightweight SPF combines broad-spectrum UV protection with a potent blend of discolouration targeting ingredients for a brighter and more even complexion.
A dual-action sunscreen that simultaneously protects against UV damage, whilst also correcting the appearance of discolouration thanks to an innovative combination of broad-spectrum UV protection and brightening active ingredients.
Benefits of SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50:
- Formulated with 1% Tranexamic Acid & 2% Niacinamide
- Ultra-lightweight broad-spectrum sunscreen
- Dual action protection against UV damage
- Corrects the appearance of discolouration
- Brightens skin tone & evens out the complexion
Formulated with state of the art UV filters and potent brightening active ingredients, this broad-spectrum sunscreen provides an innovative dual-action by both protecting against UV damage, as well as correcting the appearance of skin discolouration.
Brightening active ingredient Tranexamic Acid is included in this formulation at 1% and works by deactivating the inflammatory mediators responsible of melanin formation. 2% Niacinamide disrupts the efficiency of melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes, which is responsible for visible surface discolouration.
The ultra-lightweight and residue-free formula not only protects skin against UV damage and UV-induced discolouration, it also targets existing discolouration for a brighter and more even complexion.
SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50 is ideal for use after your chosen SkinCeuticals antioxidant serum.
How to use:
Ensure you apply sunscreen 15 minutes before exposing the skin to the sun. Avoid the sun at peak times in the day. Make sure you re-apply at regular intervals throughout the day to ensure your skin is adequately protected. Remember to always re-apply sunscreen after swimming, perspiring or towel drying the skin. Rinse from the eyes immediately and thoroughly if affected.

It dries quite matte under foundation. I feel it definitely has faded some pigmentation but unsure about the brightening effect? 4 stars because it is extremely expensive for the size of bottle. I would repurchase.
