The necessity to use sunscreen simply cannot be sufficiently underscored, and I, for one don't even walk to my car without slathering myself with a minimum SPF 30, but actually prefer higher sun protection factor on my face, neck, décolleté and hands. These vulnerable areas of the body receive so much sun exposure that one has to be particularly diligent about protecting them. My family dermatologist also happens to be a well-known surgeon who scared me into sunscreen submission long ago as he told me about the skin cancer that he sees on a daily basis.
When I was contacted to test and review Zo Skin Health Oclipse Smart Tone SPF 50, I was thrilled to try this new innovative sunscreen. I had tried one of Dr. Obagi's sunscreens years ago, and thought that it was absolutely amazing, and therefore couldn't wait to see this new advanced technology sunscreen.
Press Release:ZO Skin Health, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of Oclipse® Smart Tone SPF 50 (SPF), a revolutionary new broad-spectrum sunscreen with patented color-bursting beads that match any skin tone. Developed by legendary dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi, MD, Oclipse® Smart Tone offers a powerful dose of UVA and UVB all day sun protection, while also helping to shield the skin from cell damaging high energy visible (HEV) light. The multi-tasking formula addresses every need, from helping skin support its own natural repair process to helping tackle irritation and pigmentation, all while drenching the skin with conditioners to soften and soothe.
What’s especially unique about Oclipse® Smart Tone is that it contains micro-beads which burst when rubbed into skin to create customizable color on any skin tone, creating a perfect tint to be worn alone or as a make-up primer.
The technologically-advanced formula is super-charged with soothing extracts of Petasites Japonicus Root Extract and Beta Glucan to minimize irritants that can cause redness. The organic sunscreen is also infused with Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil to provide moisture and aid in lipid repair. To discourage the formation of new pigmentation and freckles, it’s fortified with a healthy dose of vitamin C.
“Smart Tone’s groundbreaking formula is both a novel advance in sunscreen and an ideal fit for our growing portfolio of highly differentiated medical technology products focused on skin disorders and skin health,” says James Headley, CEO and President, ZO Skin Health, Inc. “It’s one of the reasons why we are one of the fastest growing skincare companies in the world. We’re incredibly proud of this product – it is the next generation of sunscreen.”
“Using my many decades of experience as a dermatologist, scientist and pathologist, I have developed this sunscreen to protect the skin, restore the skin, and maintain skin health,” says Zein Obagi, M.D. “Now everyone can reap the benefits of this science.”
The nourishing formula boasts an exclusive proprietary 12-hour time release antioxidant complex that protects the skin against photo-damage.
The texture is creamy, soft and emollient, but not is the least bit greasy. It sinks in quickly allowing one to apply their makeup immediately. It is velvety smooth, offers hydration, and leaves the skin soft and supple. Furthermore, Oclipse Smart Tone's ability to match individual skin tones means that an even-toned perfected complexion is one of the lovely benefits of using this sunscreen.

Overall Assessment: I'm very impressed by this sunscreen because it is so effective at protecting the skin, but one needs to be constantly reminded that sunscreen must to be reapplied every two hours to protect the skin against the harmful rays of the sun. All too often, we run about with a false sense of security because we applied sunscreen in the morning, but forgot to reapply it at any point during the day. Therefore, even the best sunscreen on the planet is only effective if continually reapplied throughout the day. While I am diligent about applying my sunscreen every single day, I am not always as good about my reapplication. Recalling some of the stories that my dermatologist told me is all the motivation that I need to reapply my sunscreen throughout the day!
