At first I was a little put off by the color but this is the ONLY sunscreen that didnt break me out, didnt run and didnt make my pores feel clogged by the end of the day. I freakin' love this stuff!! I'm very fair and not once have I burned with this on, as with most other sunscreens. Its long wearing and somehow makes my skin look just more even and better.

Not for Oily skin

My complexion is oily so am very specific about what I use. I was told by Sephora that Photo Plasma does not have adequate sun protection and I should consider an oil free sun screen.I bought it on the recommendation from a friend who has incredibly dry skin but since discovered they add sunscreen, as well.The worse thing for me was how oily it made my skin. I have never had that kind of reaction before. It looked as though I had rubbed my skin with butter.Was disappointed and am going to return this.This was just my experience.38yr old/Oily Complexion

I keep coming back to Photo Plasma
from Kihei, Maui, HI
Comments about Perricone MD Photo Plasma:
I am over 70 and have had several skin cancers on my face, so a moisturizer/sunscreen combo is a must for me. Photo Plasma a has a lovely texture and doesn't have that chemical smell that most moisturizers with added sunscreens have. I live on Maui, where we wear very little makeup most of the time, and this moisturizer gives my skin a dewy quality, which makes it okay to go out practically bare faced.I try other products but always come back to this one as my day cream staple. The only downside is that it leaves my skin sticky, so I have to wait a long time before putting on powder or foundation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for Fragile Post-Chemo Skin
By Dale the Canuck
from Ontario Canada
After extensive Chemotherapy and a Stem Cell transplant my husband was left with very sensitive fragile skin.I could not find any other product at any price that he could tolerate until I tried Photo Plasma.He has used this exclusively for the last year on a daily bases and loves the way it makes his skin feel so soft.His skin also looks smooth and rejuvenated and younger than before his chemo.
I wish this didn't break my skin out...
from Houston, TX
I wish this didn't irritate my skin, because the finish isn't oily like other sunscreens. It feels nice to apply, and leaves a not-oily but not-too-matte finish- it's perfect. However, each time I used it, my skin broke out with small blemishes. I even tested it a few times just to make sure it was the Photo Plasma and not another product. Really disappointed as now I can't even use it!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

surprise from Photo Plasma
By PRIMROSE KRASICKI V SIECIN
from EAST BRIGHTON,MELBOURNE ,AUSTRALIA
Photo Plasma was a total surprise ,now that I realise after reading its high levels of antioxidant. The cream sat on my face skin in high summer days and sort of dissoloved . But the surprise has been the best for hands .It is the biggest improvement of usage to handcream. Forget the cost if you want to say goodbye to those charmless brown skin spots well this is Photo Plasma!.They have gently faded away my skin is soft and super refind & no lines of ageing . In fact now i dont use my deramtoligist's spot blast at all. But now it has totally gone thanks to this "oh give this a go ' experiment that really works to me .If this is of interest. You dont need to use a huge amount on the hands .Next im planning to see how it works on a few age spots on the face !! So thanks so much Dr Perricone,the Plasmas are great and work !!
Like but have some criticism
By Reagan Chicago
from Chicago IL
I like this because its light and because its both uva and uvb protective. However its a bit shiny on and it is sticky. Yet I still wear it but feel it could be improved. I also would like a higher spf-50 is more protection. I would recommend to people with dry skin but not necessarily to those who have a tendency to already be shiny. What I do really like about it is that it doesn't irritate my skin in any way or cause breakouts.
