See what our customers are saying about the SPF 30 Day Cream:


"My mom introduced me to this product and it's now the only make up I use all year around. I have fair skin and it protects me from the sun incredibly well. It blends in nicely, moisturizes, matches my complexion perfectly, and covers any unevenness to give me a pretty much a flawless look. I am super impressed with this day cream, and I hope it continues to be available since I plan to wear it forever! " Review by: Juliejules29 

Use Everyday

"I live in Florida and am outside a lot. I use this everyday and it gives me good sun protection and coverage. Stays in place in the hot months. I have tried other products and go back to this." Non-stinging, Non-greasy Review by: bb-fl 

Every Day for 365 Days!

I use this everyday ... summer, fall, winter, spring ... sunny or overcast ... It is so rewarding knowing my skin is being protected from the sun's harmful rays. It also is my foundation and all I need because Dr. D's products have improved my complexion. Review by: Lori Q 

What is it: Beauty and broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection in one!

Great product

Really enjoy this product so much so that I have gotten my mother using it now. The SPF 30 is perfect for protecting my skin re in Florida. The only reason why I did not give it 5 stars is that at times the product can be hard to spread on the face without pulling the skin which we are not suppose to do right? But really like it and will keep using it.

I use many of Dr. Denese's products including her day cream. Wouldn't think of leaving the house without it.

Day Cream

Dr. Denese’s SPF 30 Day Cream is another in her line of products that I have been using for many years. It is well past due that I write why I continue to purchase this product year after year. The Day Cream was years ahead of its time because it contains melanin in order to blend with different skin tones. It blends so well, that I often just use alone without a foundation on top. In addition, it contains moisturizing cream to help with dry skin and most importantly it contains SPF barrier protection to help prevent sun damage to skin. All thingredients make my morning routine quick & thorough. I wish now I had taken the time years ago to write a review. Perhaps this can help others with their decision to give it a try!!
