Obagi Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion Tint in Warm


That name is a handful, isn’t it?

Anyway, I got the Obagi Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion Tint in Warm after I read some articles about sun protection, and got a little paranoid that I wasn’t really wearing a proper sunscreen (I was just getting away with foundations and BB/CC creams that had SPF in them).

Me when I realized my lack of proper sun protection

I got this product from Dermstore, where it says:

You get a whopping 85 g for $51.75, but I got this when the site was having a 25% off promotion for Obagi products.

The Yays

  • It has SPF 50 and “broad spectrum” means it protects from both UVA and UVB rays.
  • The tint provides sheer coverage which is enough to blur my imperfections but not entirely cover them, which I like as I prefer wearing this underneath foundation or concealer.
  • They have two shades, in warm and cool to suit multiple skin tones.
  • This sunscreen goes under my makeup so smoothly and makes my dry skin immediately look glowy and radiant. I love that it keeps my makeup looking smooth, healthy, and non-cakey.
  • My makeup looks fresh and radiant all day with this sunscreen used as a base (in conjunction with some other essential skincare products – a post on them later!).
  • Dermstore sells this and they constantly have promotions which means you can get it for $ off.
  • 85 g is a sh!t-ton of product. That is almost three times the amount you get with most foundations, so this could easily last one a year, if not more.


The Mehs

  • The shade warm is a bit dark for my currently NC25 skin tone, but that is ok, because it means I can wear a highlighting concealer over this with ease. I think this shade can be pulled off by medium – deep skinned folks.


Do I recommend this?

It is a really great product for sun protection, and sheer coverage. I think I might try the cool shade after I am finished with warm to see if that suits me more.
