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.

The PA rating system measures the level of protection from UVA rays, which are known to cause pigment darkening in the skin. It measures the amount of time a product would protect your skin from darkening.
The following shows how much protection each PA score provides compared to unprotected skin. If your unprotected skin normally darkens/pigments after 5 min of UVA exposure:
|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|
|PA+++||8-16 times||40-80 minutes|
|PA++++||>16 times||>80 minutes|
Total Protection™ Face Shield Flex SPF 50 has a PA++++ rating.
My favourite spf ever, I dont need to wear make up anymore. It has an amazing coverage.
I am started to believe that colour science just does'nt care about darker skin tones. To read other people can use this foundation is shocking. The colour range does not go anywhere near my afro Carribean skin. The formula is heavy and sticky but I have no doubt it does the job of providing protection. I can only use a much lighter later than I have used with other sunscreens in the past.
Ordered this in Tan and Deep as I have some hyperpigmentation, formula is good as well matching my skin tone however when I used the recommended amount (two fingers) it seemed like a full coverage foundation so I probably won’t do that again. Only thing I’m most displeased about is that I was sent products that were expiring in 5 months time! Useless for a product that has a self life of 3 years unopened and 12 months once opened. Contacted Colourscience and they have agreed to replace or refund but I await confirmation of this. Would have been 4 stars if not for the short expiration dates.
Amazing! Love the coverage, just one application your skin is protected from sun and also don’t need extra layer of foundation. Get fresh looking skin.
Very good product and customer service
