Does TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR work well with TNS Essential Serum®?
Yes. TNS Essential Serum® includes our proprietary growth factor blend, TNS®, which is not part of Total Defense + Repair. Those growth factors are very important for rejuvenation.
Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. The two products complement each other.
Additionally, Total Defense + Repair can be used with any SkinMedica® product or regimen to add a layer of protection.
Does Total Defense + Repair offer better protection than a traditional sunscreen with a really high SPF?
Yes. Just because a product has a high SPF (ie, ≥ 50) does not mean it offers complete coverage against the sun’s rays.
Total Defense + Repair offers broad-spectrum protection and highly effective antioxidant protection from infrared radiation and free radical damage.
What shade is the tint?
It is an ultra-sheer tint.
Will the tint work well on different skin tones?
