Prana Reflect BB Creme SPF 45

Size: 1.75 oz (50 ml)

Prana Reflect BB Creme SPF 45 is a lightweight day tinted moisturizer with SPF 45 enhanced with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients that protects against the harmful UVA and UVB rays. This handy multi-purpose formula acts as a subtle tint on the face, perfect for some moisturizing sun protection under makeup or on its own. It has the soft, gentle scent of cucumber and feels luxurious on the skin. And since this lotion has been reviewed and approved by a member of the Truth In Aging community, you can be certain it will leave you satisfied.

This silky moisturizing sunscreen utilizes natural ingredients such as Green Tea as a powerful antioxidant while Iron Oxides protect you from harmful sun damage. The Reflect BB Crème works for sensitive skin types and won’t leave you with that pesky white film so many other sunscreens are plagued with. Apply to a clean dry face in the morning to moisturize and hydrate, while completely safeguarding your skin for the day. Reapply as needed, and keep your skin flawless and protected!

Note: This product has recently been reformulated. We are currently in the process of re-testing it.

Tested for 30 days and recommended by Becky:
I am happy to report that I really enjoyed using the Prana Reflect Antioxidant Skin Cream SPF 45. The sun protection comes from 9% micronized zinc oxide and seemed to do a great job preventing sun impact. I was particularly looking out for any of my existing sun spots on my left cheek and tops of hands to get worse in the sun. They didn’t, but I would have to test again in full sunlight over a longer period of time. Of course, I don’t expect 100% protection from any product due to other variables, such as time spent in the sun and how frequently I reapply.

In addition, there is so much information out there about physical sunblocks like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that I am confused about what combination to use and in what concentrations. Even doing some targeted research on TIA and other sites today didn’t make anything clearer. I will leave it at this: this particular combination of SPF, concentration and ingredients worked very well for me during the testing period.

One of the reasons for that is the wonderful sensory experience of applying the Prana to my skin. It smells delightfully of fresh cucumber with a wonderfully smooth texture that blends in easily and quickly. There is a beige tint, which supposedly adds color but wasn’t noticeable to me once absorbed. I found that the cream worked great as a makeup base as well, providing just enough of a mattifying effect to help my foundation apply smoothly and set well.

Besides the zinc, the other ingredients are very pure and were easily tolerated by my 45-year-old combo skin. I particularly appreciated the multiple antioxidants, especially alpha lipoic acid. I knew generally that this one is a heavy hitter but am now even more impressed after reading more about it on TIA and learning how it can repair past damage as well as add to the efficacy of other antioxidants - inside and outside the cell membranes. I was already in the habit of layering antioxidants with my sunscreen and will now look specifically for alpha lipoic acid when I do so in the future.

Prana Reflect Antioxidant Skin Cream SPF 45 is an excellent and enjoyable product at a decent price point. I’d buy it again and hope I have a “sure thing” trip to the sun soon!

    I love this product! Feels lightweight, smells fresh and it works at blocking the UV rays. I spent 2 days on a boat in the FL Keys, sunscreen everywhere and the Prana Reflect on my face. No redness at all on my face, everywhere else got red. Wish they would make a body size without the tint.

    I purchased this, and so far, I really like it. The sunscreen portion works really well. I went out and did some yard work and didn't put on any additional sunscreen midway though the day, and I didn't get burned (you can get a severe sunburn in winter here, and I'm also really pale). I actually haven't had a facial moisturizer ever pass that test. However I wouldn't really call it a moisturizer. It's really drying for me. It doesn't moisturize, as much as it sucks moisture up, but then again I have very dry skin. It may be better for normal to oily skin types, because I am currently having to layer it on top of another moisturizer just to keep my skin from getting dried out. I think it might matte very nicely if my skin were oily, so I may be hitting it up more sans moisturizer when it gets warmer and the humidity hits the 80-90% mark.

    This is my favorite all time sunscreen. I'm on my 2nd bottle in the past 12 months as it seems to last a long time, although I don't use it every day in Amsterdam since we have alot of cloudy days. I love the scent of this and am really happy with the every Prana product I've tried but this is a real winner. It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave any strange white/chalky residue..than you are left with the amazing light fragrance. My sensitive skin just adores this SPF!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! I will no longer use the Prana SPF 35 after trying a bottle of this. I love the way it blends effortlessly into my skin without leaving any noticable residue or color. I LOVE the smell as I'm applying it. I have a really sensitive nose and if you've read my other reviews, I can be quite picky about scents, especially the overly cloying ones, but this product's last just as long as you're actively applying it and it is such a wonderful smell. I'm really a fan of all of the Prana products I've tried thus far but this one is my new favorite. I just wish I could get it shipped to Europe, instead of having to stock up each time I come to the US for a visit.

    I love this product. I have tried many sunscreens under make-up but this has been my favorite so far. It does not leave any color, white or otherwise, feels great and smells great. It is shiny, but I put makeup or powder over it to offset the shine.

    There is much to like about this product. It is purely made with no harsh ingredients. It provides excellent sun protection and it has a fresh, soft scent. Which lingers for too long. I get a bit tired of the scent of cucumber water all day long. The tint is non-existent. The product comes out a tannish color, but imparts none of this to your skin. It covers nothing. I could live with this, and would make this my go-to sunscreen if it were actually a cream. It's actually more of a glaze. It shellacs my face like a yeast donut, and stays that way until it's washed off. I don't care for the shiny look. Unfortunately that's a deal breaker for me. But I'm glad I tried it.

    I love this product! Finally a physical sunblock that doesn't feel thick or leave a white cast after applying. The scent is very fresh and enjoyable but not cloying. It has not caused any negative reactions or breakouts. I really look forward to using this each morning.
