FAQ

Should I apply an additional SPF since this is only SPF 30?
SPF 50 is only about 1.3% more protective than SPF 30—but if you want extra protection, go ahead. The Multimodal Defender also offers Broad Spectrum coverage, which means it protects against UVA, UVB, infrared, and blue light rays.
Can this be used at night as well?
Yes! This is a true treatment product designed for both day and night use. Apply it in the evening to treat spots and wake up to brightened skin.
How long will the product last me?
It should last six weeks, if used as directed.
What if I see a white cast when applying the MMD?
Not to worry. That just means you need to blend it in fully. Within a few seconds of application, it warms and absorbs to your skin, leaving a soft, illuminated radiance.
Can you tell me about the texture of the Multimodal Defender?
The consistency of the Multimodal Defender is naturally rich and buttery—so buttery, in fact, that it comes with a spoon for optimal application. Thanks to its targeted blend of ingredients, it’s designed to have a thick, almost solid texture as it comes out of the jar. Once massaged, it transforms, heating to your body temperature and melting into a creamy, non-migrating balm. It then releases a potentially cooling effect, as it's fully absorbed into the skin and blended into your complexion. This unique texture accounts for how it appears in the jar, which is completely normal. It also makes it ideal for both allover and spot treatment (be more generous for day and opt for a thinner coat to treat dark spots), so you can easily measure exactly how much you’re applying.
Can I use a discount code on a subscription?
Subscriptions are already offered at a discounted price and are not eligible for additional discounts. If you have reward points, you can use them on a new subscription, or on the upcoming recurring order of your existing subscription. If you're purchasing a subscription for the first time, just proceed to the checkout page where you will be able to decide how many points you would like to redeem. If you're an active subscriber and would like to apply your points to a future shipment, go to "My Account > Redeem Points on Subscriptions". You will be able to select how many points you want to redeem and apply them on your next subscription upcoming shipment.

MMD in the Press

"Consider this an SPF on steroids. Yes, the SPF 30 (from zinc oxide) protects your precious skin from inevitable sun damage, but it will also help correct hyperpigmentation or uneven skin texture."

Wow!
Ok so I will say I was a bit skeptical at first but it was because I used too much. This balm is incredibly rich and if you use a lighter amount it melts into your skin like butter. I use it after the Duo and then put the tint over it. Compliments abound.

Bare-faced, no filter selfie at 44 years old
I recently took a selfie to rep my East Texas heritage—thus the trucker hat—wearing nothing but MMD. While the results are not impressive by celebrity standards (and Tina IS a celebrity in my estimation…original Bag Snob fan), I am confident with no make

Great Moisturizer with SPF
I saw a reply to the influencer who influenced me recommending using the Multimodal Defender with the Resurfacing Compound, so I decided to give it a try, especially since it seemed better for oilier skins. Well, I love it! It's a unique texture that

I’m not going back to my previous sunscreen!
Love it so far! I took too long to buy it! The white cast had stopped me from buying it sooner but if you warm it up on ur fingers first , it makes it easier to blend on the face! It gives an additional glow! It’s only been a week since I started using

Best SPF on the market!
I am extremely pale… have tried every SPF under the sun. This is the best, all natural and shielding sunscreen ever. I also am a makeup girl, and this is the best primer I’ve found. Makeup looks flawless and evens out skin tone by end of day. Love love

I have tried about a dozen different non-chemical sunscreens and I have hated them all. Some were thick and white and never quite rubbed in. Others were greasy and laid on top of my skin. This is nothing like anything I have tried. It is so elegantly
