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!

Best seller,  Customer Choice Award winner unique day cream, which represents three products in one:  your anti-aging day cream that is clinically proven to firm your skin (Cutometer Study), your SPF 30 UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection and your light coverage make up.  It is naturally tinted with our proprietary self-adjusting melanin technology, Pro Melanin Factor™ for an instant, sheer coverage that makes your skin look flawless, even colored and hydrated. A day cream that  prevents wrinkles, lines, age spots, loss of firmness and discolorations.  You can even apply it on the upper eye lids and right under the eyes for age protection.

Pleasant to wear, this innovative formula delivers SPF 30 UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection even to the eye area.  Oil free and matte in appearance.

I’ve tried so many day creams and finally realized I had found the perfect one. Dr Denese SPF 30 Defense Day Cream is the best. The coverage is perfect and it’s got SPF to protect my skin. I mix it with my moisturizer and then apply it to my face. Friends have asked what I changed on my face- it glows & I explain now I only use your SPF 30 defense day cream.

My Daily Necessity!

I have worn this tinted moisturizer every day for years. While wearing it, I feel confident that my skin is protected against future sun damage. It's matte, provides medium coverage and feels weightless. My skin looks better once I have applied it. It also doubles as a primer. No need to pick shades, as this cream has Melanin in it and will match your skin tone perfectly. I highly recommend this product!

My Fav SPF day cream

Most spf day creams/moisturizers I tried had mica which I think looks terrible on older skin. No mica in Dr. Denese’s spf day cream and a slight self adjusting tint combined with great moisturizing make this my go-to cream for years now. Very happy with this product!!
