What I’m Loving Now: Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 50+



When it comes to skin care, I preach sun protection like nobody’s business. When I had my skin care studio, my clients wouldn’t leave without a sunscreen. Call it extortion, but I wanted to be sure that they would reap the benefits of their services and their products.

Well, I have the feeling that Kate Somerville feels the exact same way. I have been using her Kate Somerville Daily Deflector™ Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 50+PA+++ Anti-Aging Sunscreen and am pretty much in love with it.

Here are the deets about Kate Somerville Daily Deflector™ Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ PA+++ Anti-Aging Sunscreen:

Daily Deflector Moisturizer   Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ PA+++This scientifically advanced complex offers broad-spectrum sun protection, restores optimal moisture levels, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Natural Extracts improve the look of skin firmness and combine with Light-diffusing Ingredients to create a fresh, healthy-looking complexion.

A cutting-edge delivery system ensures that the Sunscreen stays in a reservoir on the skin’s surface, while Advanced Actives penetrate deeply.

Matrixyl™ 3000 helps reduce the visible depth and volume of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles, especially on the forehead area and around the eyes.

Dynamic Moisture Complex maintains skin’s optimal moisture levels by restoring its natural capacity to retain moisture.

Natural Mineral Clay helps control excess sebum production.

A naturally derived Shitake Mushroom-based skin tightener improves the look of sagging skin and helps maintain elasticity and tone.

Natural Aloe Vera soothes skin.

This scientifically advanced complex offers broad-spectrum sun protection, restores optimal moisture levels, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Natural Extracts improve the look of skin firmness and combine with Light-diffusing Ingredients to create a fresh, healthy-looking complexion.

Why I’m loving it:

When I first saw this sunscreen, I have to admit, I was terrified. It’s white. I mean white, white, white.  And all too often, sunscreens that are over an SPF 20, in particular those with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, tend to leave my skin looking ashy or even worse like I’m a holograph. A quick glance at the ingredients of this multitasking moisturizer put that fear to rest however.  All chemical sunscreens, plus other great ingredients like Shitake Mushroom, mineral clay and aloe vera make this the ultimate anti-aging skin care protector.

Kate Somerville Daily Deflector melts right into my skin without leaving a trace of “ash.” I apply it after my vitamin C serum and have found that it’s enough moisturizer for day.  My skin feels hydrated and tightened, looks matte and stays that way for hours.

The formula is very light and fluid. It’s very much the texture of lotion as opposed to a cream, and I love that.  The packaging is fabulous and pretty – the pump bottle dispenses just enough product, not too much, so you do not waste.

With an SPF 50, I stay protected in the sun for hours. (Calculate how long it takes you to burn, then, multiply by the SPF, which in this case is 50.)  Most of my sun exposure is casual – in the car, walking the dog or working in the garden, and I feel confident that Kate Somerville Daily Deflector is doing its job.

As far as skin care, I think it’s the perfect accompaniment to a skin care regimen. For night, substitute your favorite treatment moisturizer for Kate Somerville Daily Deflector.

    Sounds like you found a great product here. A moisturizer with an SPF of 50 is always a plus when you aren’t expecting to sit in the sun for hours at a time. I am definitely a fan of bottles with a pump, so that is a big plus for me.
