If you’re spending the day outdoors, be sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours.

Birchbox Breakdown

Although we’re committed to wearing sunscreen every day, we don’t love slathering greasy lotions on our face first thing in the morning (or really ever). That’s why we start our day off right with philosophy’s oil-free moisturizer, which weightlessly protects our skin from the sun. Perfect for layering under makeup, it’s also formulated to diffuse oxygen across skin’s surface for a glowing, natural-looking complexion—talk about a breath of fresh air.

How it Works

The lightweight formula contains broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection to shield skin against sun damage and premature aging. It offers oil-free hydration and promotes the circulation of oxygen, giving skin a vibrant, healthy glow. Antioxidants protect skin from environmental attack and brighten the complexion.

How to Use

Apply a generous amount to clean, dry skin at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply as needed.

Love Philosophy products!
Purchased

I love Philosophy products in general and this is no exception! I love the consistency of this cream and it's lightweight and no greasy. Plus the SPF is such a plus. More face creams should have some sort of SPF in it.

nice, but slightly different
Purchased

I love philosophy. I've used their standard SPF for years, it gives my skin a nice dewey texture. But there was something slightly off about this one. I'm going to continue buying the standard version.

First philosophy keeper
Purchased

I've tried philosophy in the past and haven't loved it. Looking for a daily SPF, this was one of the only really good options. It works without a doubt. The SPF stays on ALL day, it moisturizes without being greasy. It's EXACTLY what I needed for a morning moisturizer with SPF. Will buy again every summer.

Great formula, awful packaging
Purchased

I love this moisturizer. It's light and refreshing (the smell is great and it has a cooling effect on the skin). I have sensitive, acne prone skin and I haven't had any issues with this product.

The packaging is disappointing. The consistency of this moisturizer is VERY thing and this bottle just doesn't work. The opening is too large and the product just pours out, causing a lot of waste. A lot of the product just pools in the cap, when when closed. I have to store this upside down.

Lightweight and super hydrating!
Purchased

I finally found a moisturizer that feels light on my skin AND has great sun protection. This goes on smoothly and doesn't take forever to absorb. Love that it's oil free!
