Tired of searching for a sunscreen that would protect her skin without leaving any stickiness or white cast, Wende decided to create her own. Like a force field, this crystal-clear primer feels like nothing you've ever tried and protects your skin from whatever the day throws at you. SPF 30 guards against the sun, and UD's invisible-on-the-skin formula doesn't leave a trace. Urban Defense not only protects, but also primes and smoothes skin as it minimizes the look of pores—so makeup applies better and lasts all day. This hydrating gel formula contains conditioning ingredients like sesame seed extract, tomato fruit extract, squalane and bisabolol (derived from the Brazilian candeia tree).

Want to Love It...With fair skin and being sun damage cautious, I was so happy to get a primer *with* SPF, but this has fallen just a little short of my expectations. The first couple pumps were extremely runny, like the product had separated but there is no way in this container to shake it back up if needed. After a few more uses, the consistency was more like what I thought it should be and it works nicely. However, I think for my particular needs I would be better off with the De-Slick version as I had a bit of foundation sliding even after using the De-Slick setting spray.

So far so good, loving itAfter a bad run in with the De-Slick primer, I returned it for this one. I am normally a dry to combo skin, becoming more combo as I'm getting older. I am rather fair and always need more sun protection, and again with age, the dark spots are coming out so I'm using products that require more sun protection.
This product is smooth and silky feeling. It glides on my face easily and smoothly. Foundation (all nighter) goes on flawlessly. And with both of them on, still feels very lightweight to me. I was previously using some Smashbox primer and this feels miles better to me so far.

Not what I expectedThis is only one ounce. It is way over priced even though the container gives you the illusion of there being more product. I purchase an spf 50 lotion from another high end and cruelty free company for a couple dollars less and I get twice the amount of product. I tried this because I am always looking for something that has no shine to it. I did not get that from this product. I left it on all day and the shine never went away and there was no reduction in pore appearance at all. I just got half the product and much less sun protection factor so I returned this sunscreen. It did apply easily as all my sunscreens do. I wear sunscreen everyday and I have normal skin with a nose that gets oily. I hope I get my money back because I just returned two eye shadows and only got a refund on one of them. I still have to contact UD and try to find out why this happened. Lately I have not been having good luck with my UD purchases. Hoping this does not continue.

Not as good as it could beI really wanted to like this because of the SPF. I have very fair skin and burn after only a few minutes in direct sunlight, so I was excited when this came out. As far as preventing sunburn, it does the job. Otherwise, I wouldn't have used it. First of all, I wish it had some tint to it to provide some coverage. It's completely clear, so it doesn't help me when it comes to concealing the scars on my face. The big drawback of this primer, though, was that it was so drying. My skin is naturally dry, and this just dried out my complexion so much that after a few hours of wear my skin just feels tight, itchy, and gross. No matter what moisturizer I applied beforehand, my skin would still be extremely dry by the afternoon. I think this primer could work for some people, but not for me. It seems to be a decent product, just not right for my skin.

Flakes off with foundation applicationI was very disappointed to find that it flakes off in powder-colored chunks when used with my UD powder foundation. Literally, it ends up all over my shirt and all over the sink and counter. So frustrating! It seems do fine as a primer for eye make up, so I will finish the bottle but I will not purchase this again. :( [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great under One and Done, or by itselfI love this stuff! I am a minimalist when it comes to makeup, especially foundation, and for days that I don't want to put any type of foundation on I can use this and I still get SPF, with no stickiness or residue. It also really makes a difference under the One and Done foundation: I don't have to use as much and the coverage is much smoother. Must Have!

Best primer for summer days!I switched from Hangover Rx to this for the SPF protection. This primer not only protects from environmental damage, it also makes my makeup look flawless. I plan to continue using this even after the summer months because I love it so much.
