How to Use
Activate. Develop. Set. Dispense onto fingertips and rub gently to release and activate encapsulated pigments. As the shade begins to develop from white to your shade, apply to moisturized face and continue to blend for even coverage. Watch as it adjusts to your skin to immediately blur imperfections and even skin tone. The shade is fully developed when product is no longer white. Allow 1-2 minutes for shade to adjust completely. Set with one of our Total Protection brush-on sunscreens or follow with foundation for full-color coverage. Pro Tip: Layer underneath your foundation for fuller color coverage or use with Face Shield Glow or Face Shield Bronze to enhance your look. One and Done: Evenly apply one layer to entire face, including under eyes for a look that’s naturally you and powerfully protected. The Foundation Replacer: Build your coverage to your ideal level of flawless perfection. After applying your first layer, wait 1 minute before applying another layer.

|PA Rating||Level of Protection||# of minutes protected before experiencing skin darkening/pigmentation|
|PA+||2-4 times||10-20 minutes|
|PA++||4-8 times||20-40 minutes|

I looooove this sunscreen. As a Black woman, I’m alway struggling to find a sunscreen that doesn’t make my skin look ashy or ghostly with that horrendous white cast. I saw a review by Dr Alexis Stephens on YouTube and decided to try it in the shade Deep. Omg! This sunscreen is amazing!!!! It blends flawlessly into my skin and adapted to my complexion like I’m wearing foundation. I absolutely love Flex and it’s now the only sunscreen I will be using from now on. I will 100% recommend Colorscience products, especially flex sunscreen. Great job Colorscience on a fantastic product that doesn’t exclude any skin tones.
I was a little dubious when first using the product because it looked very white when it came out of the tube. The product blended really well with my skin tone and didn’t drag or pull at my skin on application like most mineral factor 50’s. It left my face looking healthy and dewy but not greasy. Even my friends noticed how lovely my skin looks on a video call. I definitely recommend this product, go hit the buy button!
This sunscreen is absolutely fantastic as it provides excellent protection from the suns rays but also gives such lovely coverage that I can go without foundation. Makes my mornings much quicker and easier and I feel good knowing my skin is so well protected. Will repurchase.
I purchased this twice in medium and although it's okay I think the colour was a little off I now got it in Tan and I can say hands down the undertone is so much better so much more suitable for Indian skintone and less rubbing in to do. So far it's a good product will use it in the summer as it's too matte and drying.
Not as good as I expected, if you use to much skin tone changed to grey even with makeup on.
