“All-In-One Sunscreen” Review: HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30

Home/skincare/sunscreen/“All-In-One Sunscreen” Review: HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30

There’s a SEA of sunscreen out there, folks, but have you tried an “all-in-one solar defense like HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30?

HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30 is a Broad Spectrum SPF 30 lotion with Acai, green tea, aloe, hyaluronic acid, galanga, titanium dioxide 2.5% and zinc oxide 6%.


This is a sunscreen with anti-aging properties, PLUS galanga root to stop shine, and little pigment spheres that blend away imperfections and lightly kiss your skin with a sunny glow….so you REALLY don’t have to wear makeup!

PLUS, it has the fancy schmancy “Solar Defense” name that puts it a cut above “regular sunscreen.”  You feel super special.

Luxe, luxe luxe!

Hydropeptide’s Solar Defense Spf 30 Review

I actually had an out of body experience — I thought I was super wealthy! The experience of using it was just a joy every day – the packaging is ultra sleek and the smell is super yummy and not greasy.

HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30 is $44.00 for a 1.7 oz bottle and this bottle lasted me over a month for sure.

This solar defense self-adjusts to the color of your skin tone! And the anti-aging elements in Acai, green tea and hyaluronic acid hydrate, protect and help clarify the skin.

HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30 Features:

– Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, physical blocking sunscreens, offer broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB damage without leaving a white, chalky appearance (which is the WORST!).

– A Moisture-Binding Peptide rich in protein and derived from yeast extract reactivates epidermal lipids and allows for improved, long-lasting hydration. Significantly decreases the sebaceous secretion of oily skin, leaving a non-shiny appearance.

– Self-adjusting sphere’s perfectly blend to any skin tone, camouflaging mild hyperpigmentation and redness, while offering a more even, flawless, matte finish.

– Oil-free formula that doesn’t leave a greasy feel. Aloe, niacin and sodium hyaluronate perfectly balance hydration.

And HydroPeptide’s Solar Defense SPF 30 is free of:

– Gluten 
(putting gluten on your skin is SAID to cause rashes, itching and swelling)

– Parabens

– Phthalate

– Sulfates

All you do is apply daily to your face before makeup (if you’re wearing makeup) and 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hours after swimming, perspiring, or after towel drying. The bonus is the shine-free glow!

This product is available for purchase here.
