WINNER OF ASKMEN'S "BEST SUNSCREEN" AWARD
Say goodbye to the sticky, oily residue of sunscreens. Our SPF + Moisturizer is water-based, super lightweight and fast-absorbing, and leaves you feeling refreshed, never greasy, and zero white residue.
The no. 1 rule of skincare is to use SPF daily. Yes, daily. Start by squeezing out a nickel-sized amount of SPF on your hand. Dab small amounts all over your face and neck for even coverage, and rub it in. SPF should be applied 15-20 minutes prior to sun exposure, so put it on while brewing your morning cup of joe. Reapply every two hours if exposed to direct sun. Enjoy youthful skin for years to come.
Sun damage is the main cause of skin aging and skin cancer. Protecting your face with SPF everyday is truly the best thing you can do for happier, healthier skin. Preventing wrinkles is so much better than getting rid of them.
Since launch, Cardon SPF + Moisturizer has been a press favorite. It won the 2019 Ask Men Grooming Award for Best Sunscreen and has been featured in GQ, Esquire, Valet, The Manual, and more. Check out the reviews below to see why customers are obsessed with it.

SPF stands for sun protection factor. SPF 30 means you can stay in the sun 30x longer without getting burnt. So if you typically burn in 20 minutes, you are now protected for 600 minutes. That’s 10 hours of safety for your face.
Active Ingredients: (Reef-safe) Avobenzone, Homosalate, Octyl Salicylate
We chose not to use a Zinc-based formula because it left a white residue and felt thick on the skin, which often deter people from using sun protection every day. We are still working to innovate in the sunscreen space and develop a mineral sunscreen that has the same lightweight texture as our current chemical one. We do not use Oxybenzone or Octinoxate, which are known to harm coral reef.

Daily SPF + Moisturizer
A little goes a long way. I've been on the hunt for a lightweight but affective SPF moisturizer. This product ticks all the boxes. Very lightweight, doesn't make me breakout. I've only used it for a week intermittently, but my observations are below: PROS: lightweight, does the job, dries matte, doesn't make my skin feel clogged. CONS: heavy scent to it which seems unnecessary - reminds me of male body spray, delivery time took a long time (I'm putting that down to Covid though), and the bottle is tiny - it could be half a size bigger. If the scent was slightly subtler, and the package was a little bigger it would be 5 stars.
The sunscreen is great and effective without feeling heavy on my skin. absorbs quickly and no greasy feel.
This product has been great and is very easy to apply the smell is also nice
Literally 1000s of sunscreens call themselves "non-greasy" and they totally are greasy. I'm 24 and have naturally oily, and acne prone skin so this is an important feature for me. Cardon feels so lightweight. It soaks is beautifully, and doesn't feel greasy at all. I've been sporting a buzz cut lately, so I've been putting it on my scalp and it feels good there too! Highly recommend.
Feels great, absorbs quickly and no greasy feel/look. (M, Denver, 33)
One fine summer day, helping my bf clean his bathroom cabinet...months of searching and trying high end spf products I've found one that doesn't leave a tacky film or white cast and allows my skin to breathe. The only bit that will take getting used to is the light masculine aftershave sorta smell which eventually dissipates.
I’ve always had pretty oily skin and have hated using all types of lotions/moisturizers because they exacerbated that feeling. I don’t have any of those issues with Cardon. Few minutes after application I forget it’s on. Couldn’t recommend it more.
I love this product - I've been using this for over a year (gifted from a friend). I am always out in the sun. Last year, I hiked over 500 miles near the Durango, CO area. I'm a mile closer to the sun than most people and we receive 300+ days of sunshine per year. I have not had a single sunburn nor a single breakout since using this product. Most SPF lotions will make me breakout when combined with sweat (because sweat opens your pores). I also love this because I often rock winter stubble/beard and this is the only sunscreen that fully blends in without leaving a white residue.
