Daily Deflector Moisturizer

Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Anti-Aging Sunscreen
2 points per dollar


This lightweight moisturizer does triple duty by providing intense hydration, protecting against environmental damage, and maximizing age-defense effects. The cutting-edge new delivery system in Daily Deflector™ Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Anti-Aging Sunscreen ensures that the sunscreen stays in a reservoir on the surface of the skin—where it is most effective—and the advanced actives penetrate deeply—where they’re able to produce the greatest results. This scientifically advanced complex offers broad-spectrum sun protection, restores optimal moisture levels, and significantly reduces the visible depth and volume of wrinkles. Natural extracts with immediate tightening effects combine with light-diffusing ingredients to create a fresh, healthy-looking complexion.

  • A revolutionary new “reservoir” system keeps key ingredients separated so that they stay where they work best: sunscreen on the surface and actives underneath.
  • Matrixyl™ 3000 helps reduce the visible depth and volume of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles, especially on the forehead area and around the eyes.
  • A naturally derived Shitake Mushroom-based skin tightener has immediate effects on the look of sagging skin and is formulated to gradually strengthen skin’s connective tissue.

    • Although I am in my mid 20's, I use this product every day. I use the oil free moisturizer at night and this in the morning. I love that it has a nice lightweight non greasy SPF and that it illuminates my skin. It keeps me looking dewy, bright, and fresh. Which is hard to find for my oily skin! Love love love!

    • I received a sample of this from Nordstrom's, the first time I used it I thought it was like a glittery lotion because it has light reflectors in it. The light reflectors are so tiny and the lotion is light yet contains an SPF of 20 - it's really a great lotion for everyday!

    • A+

      I really like this... its very moisturizing while also protecting from the sun. I get burnt easily and this really helps prevent it.. I'm young so i didn't really care for the anti aging benefits but its a plus!

    • This moisturizer is wonderful for my active lifestyle. It's light, nourishing and contains SPF. Whether I'm out in the sun or snow I can see and feel my skin is protected. It glides on without feeling thick or greasy like typical sunscreens. Can't live without! Smells incredible too!

    • This is my first purchase from Kate's line. I really like this moisturizer with sunscreen- mostly because of the feel of the product. It's the only daily moisturizer with sunscreen that glides on easily, isn't thick, and smells wonderful! My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that I worry SPF20 isn't high enough. I wish it were more like SPF35. Regardless, I love it and will purchase it again and again. I can't praise the feel and smell of this moisturizer enough.

    • I have been using this moisturizer this winter. It gives my skin a good amount of moisture while providing it with some protection from the sun. I use a stronger SPF in the summer but this is wonderful for the winter months when I don't need so much.

    • I dread putting on sunscreen because it's so sticky and hard to remove. I have not really tested it in the sun to the extreme but I love the way it feels. I like the dewy look too.

    • hi! love this day cream with spf 20 very hydrating in nourishing protect my skin from the sun and wrinkles.

    • I knew I could trust any product of Kate's line so when I was looking for an AM moisturizer that would also be anti-aging i knew this would do the trick. The moisturizer is fabulous it's not greasy (like all of her products) and it gives me that daily protection I need to keep my skin looking young and healthy. Definitely a 5/5 product!!!

    • I received this as a sample with one of the kits I bought and fell in love with it after the first use. This is a must have, especially for the summer months!

    • Im not out in the sun too much any more but its great protection when I am in the sun and it looks great on my skin. Feels and smells good too! And its keeping me from getting age spots..

    • I've used so many sunscreens for my face and it always makes my face very greasy. This sunscreen gives the perfect glow. Bought it when I was visiting the states. Lots of people have commented on my face since I started using Kate Somerville products. My collection keeps expanding because I keep finding amazing products to try.

    • This moisturizer is exactly what I've been looking for. I love it and have been telling everyone who will listen about it.

    • I was looking for a facial sunscreen that would also be beneficial for combination skin. This was definitely not it. I found this product to be greasy and it left my face feeling oily. May work well for someone with dry/normal skin. I have since purchased the Daily Deflector Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ and love it.

    • Light but intensely moisturizing. Contains fine shimmer to give you a dewy, glowing complexion. Pleasant scent. I love this product.

    • This product is incredible! It keeps my skin feel smooth, silky and hydrated without being overly heavy. It's basically AMAZING… and if you have sensitive skin with occasional dry patches, you pretty much need this product. I'm also prone to occasional breakouts, especially when trying new products and this didn't break me out at all. I highly recommend!

    • An excellent addition to my daily routine. Necessary for protection. It is a comfortable layer in addition to the other products I use.

    • The Daily Deflector Moisturizer with SPF 20 is a winner. The moisturizer is light weight and soothing to the skin, leaving no greasy residue. I also love it's container, the tube. Easy to carry, to pack or have on the counter.

    • I love this product because it is not sticky like so many other SPF products from other brands are. I usually use this in the winter months when a higher SPF isnt so necessary.

      (Posted on 7/20/13) Review by Angie
    • This moisturizer works great under makeup! I was looking for something to wear to work when I wouldn't be out in the sun, but I would be under harsh lights. This is a great option for anyone looking for a great moisturizer with an SPF on it. It doesn't break me out and doesn't smell badly!

    • I got this free with an order I placed through Sephora. I tried it cause I love KS products, but this is not for acne prone skin. I gave it to my husband to use and I can really tell a difference. I can see the fine lines softening. He doesn't complain about it so it must be doing something right. I usually can't get him to use products like this. ;)

    • I had this product and it was fine although I don't know that I like the way it felt under my makeup. Not sure it's one you should use under makeup?? Possibly the lady at Nordstrom told me wrong?? It just seemed like with the smell, it smells like suntan lotion, and the consistency of it. that it should be used alone. Will try it again when someday the weather gets NORMAL again!

    • It's about darn time Kate came out with a moisturizer with sunscreen in it! This is my HG day moisturizer now. I love it!

    • Great moisturizer w an xtra kick of sunscreen

      (Posted on 4/1/13) Review by Lauren
    • This is my favorite moisturizer by Kate - it hydrates my drier skin really well and gives it a very healthy and luminous glow. I love it! It has a bit of a pearlized finish if you look really close, which I wasn't expecting, but it is not off-putting at all, or even noticeable to anyone but you. I have a toddler and my mornings are busy, so I also really appreciate that the sunscreen is already incorporated to save me a step. It's also a ridiculously good price; I can't recommend it enough.

    • Love this product! It softens my lines and gives me a glow! I am hooked on this product.

    • Offers less coverage than Kate's other sunscreen but with the moisturizer it's great for days when there's not much sun!

    • Great moisturizer. Light, smells good and easy to apply.

    • I initially got a sample of this product from QVC with my order of supersized ExfolliKate. I fell in love with its nice smell and silky texture. I don't have a dry skin. I have a combination/sensitive skin type, and it is still lightweight moisturizer for me. I didn't know that an SPF lotion (moisturizer) could feel so good on my skin. I'm never going to settle for any less.

    • I use this moisturizer during summer months, because it's very light. During winter, I need something stronger, so I use another cream. Love this moisturizer because it controls oil and doesn't make my face shiny.

      (Posted on 2/3/13) Review by lorena
    • I've purchased this moisturizer on QVC and I can easily say that this is the best one I've ever used. The scent is very nice and the texture of the product is light and silky. It will make your skin feel heavenly. I'll make sure to never run out of it.

    • This is my favorite morning moisturizer by Kate. It provides SPF protection without the typical white or greasy residue. My skin glows after using this product.

    • This is a great go-to daily moisturizer, I have only been using for just over a week but my skin is really glowing. And the sweet scent is my favorite part.
