If you’re coping with serious sun damage, layer this sunscreen over NIA24®’s Skin Strengthening Complex.


Birchbox Breakdown

Most of us have spent a little too much time outdoors without sunscreen, and chances are it’s taken a toll on our skin. While we can’t change the past, we can make up for lost time with this fortifying sunscreen, which goes one step beyond ordinary formulas to protect skin and undo the damage from years’ worth of beach trips, pool sessions, and other adventures under the sun. Chock full of patented ingredients, the SPF 30 lotion isn’t the least bit greasy and provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.

How it Works

This exceptional sunscreen is formulated with 5% Pro-Niacin, a unique form of Vitamin B that penetrates the surface layers of skin to activate the cellular repair process from within. Translation? Skin’s defense barrier is strengthened, brown spots fade away, and your whole complexion will look smoother and more even-toned. Other trustworthy ingredients include chemical sunscreens such as octisalate and avobenzone to shield your skin from further damage. Finally, mango butter and ceramides moisturize and soften skin.

How to Use

In the mornings, apply a dime-size amount to the clean skin on your face and neck. If you’re planning to spend time outdoors, make sure to take the tube along so you can reapply every few hours.

It's good, but...

This is a decent everyday sunscreen. It wears well, feels good on your skin, and does not interfere with makeup. However, this is not an outdoor/sport sunscreen. If you are going to be outdoors for an extended period of time, you need to remember to reapply the lotion every ninety minutes or so.

Not for serious sun

I bought this because I loved how it felt on my skin. I think it is good for everyday sunscreen but I would not recommend it for a day in the sun or any long amount of time outside. Normally 30 is great for me for time in the sun but with this I got a sunburn. I tried it a few times and the same thing each time. I was really disappointed because I have sensitive skin and this really does not irritate it like others do. Sad that I have to keep looking. I wonder if they made a stronger version if it would be good?

Best sunscreen I've used yet

I've always avoided heavy sunscreens for fear of breaking out. This sunscreen does not make me breakout, so I can always put on the right amount of sunscreen to make sure I'm getting the full protection. It also has the PA+++ rating, which is incredibly important to me. If I'm going to put sunscreen on everyday, I want to make sure I have a sunscreen that is doing its job.

I wouldn't use any other sunscreen.

The *best*

This sunscreen is the best I have ever used. I started using it several years ago, and it immediately turned me into a lifelong user. I can't imagine anything better.

It leaves no oiliness on my skin, which most other sunscreens do, including the lotion + sunscreen combos. It absorbs in moments and my skin is left feeling smooth and matte, and is perfect under my makeup.

I love love love this sunscreen.

I tried this sunscreen because I have used other Nia 24 products and loved them. Its a great way to get the niacin benefits and prevent sun damage at the same time

So Good!

This stuff is so awesome. I am diligent about sunscreen and I used to stick to only physical sunblock (titanium dioxide, zinc oxide) for fear of irritation. This sunscreen gives NO irritation to my seriously sensitive skin. It reverses sun damage. It gives me a healthy glow without looking oily. The scent in mild and non-offensive. Its perfect! I will willingly drop the money on this because it is prevention AND treatment all in one.
