Loving it.

This product comes in a very beautiful good quality packaging. The best thing I love this that you don't have to dip your fingers into an open jar and contaminating the product. this jar has a push down technology , which dispenses the product effectively. Every time you push down the top , you get a fresh batch of product. most chemical based sunscreens make my eyes water, therefore I was really pleased to know this cream has zinc as a physical sun block. This protects my skin from the sun and does not make my eyes water at all. Even though I pack on a lot of product , it absorbs well into my skin without leaving a greasy film. It does in the beginning leave a white cast which then subsides. My skin stays healthy and supple throughout the day. It does a great job of moisturizing my skin as well as protecting my skin from the sun. While wearing this cream I have not noticed any tanning on my face at all. This cream has antioxidant properties. I also really enjoy its subtle citrus scent.

A rich moisturiser with sunscreen

The Synergie Skin Uber Zinc moisturiser is a moisturiser with 21% zinc oxide. It comes in a round tub and has quite an interesting dispensation method. If you twist open the lid, you will see the moisturiser in the tub. What you actually need to do is lift the top lid off and you will see a white plastic circle which you then push down to dipense the moisturiser through a small hole in the middle. This allows the moisturiser to stay fresh and bacteria free. The moisturiser itself is beige in colour and has a delicious citrusy scent that reminds me of cake. The scent is not too overpowering though. The instructions advise to gently pat the moisturiser into the skin and not to rub vigorously. I find that patting the moisturiser in takes a bit longer in the morning routine. I found the moisturiser to be a bit on the heavy side when first applied - it could be that I'm just not very good at patting it in, but I can feel it sitting on my skin. That could also be the zinc protective layer. After it dries though, it feels better and makeup still goes over it fine. Overall a good moisturiser.

I won't use anything else now

This has been a game changer for me. I'm really fussy with my skin care and I'm fairly health conscious. What has impressed me about this product is the use of natural sunscreen ie zinc in the product. This is the first moisturizer I've found that despite using zinc can still absorb really well, and can still have makeup layered on top without it appearing blotchy. Infact, the product controls oil so well and provides a beautiful base for makeup. The absorption also makes it beautiful for applying before bed as there is no icky residue in the morning. It's perfect

Beautiful SPF day cream

Synergy Skincare was initially recommended to me by my dermal therapist when I was having some professional skin treatments a few years ago, and I still continue to use some of the products. Uberzinc is one of my favourites as it's effective and non-irritating, especially if you're having professional skin treatments that can leave your skin super sensitive. This moisturiser comes in a sleek jar with a pump top dispenser, which you have to press down for the product to come out. I find this packaging quite good as it helps keep the moisturiser and SPF fresh and stable, plus it's great if your travelling as there's no spillage. The texture is not too heavy or thick, but still quite nourishing and hydrating. I am pleased that there is no strong or synthetic fragrance added to cause any irritation. Uberzinc contains a high dose of zinc oxide to provide natural UV protection, and i find it ideal for sensitive skin. I tend to have sensitive combination skin and can find many of the chemical sunscreens cause redness and/or itchiness. However this one actually seems to calm and soothe my skin, while also protecting it. My favourite thing about this moisturiser is that it contains a lot of antioxidants and plant based ingredients to moisturiser the skin. It doesn't leave my skin oily and absorbs quite well after a few minutes, although there is a slight white cast left on my skin due to the high zinc concentration. This moisturiser is very expensive and given that the jar is 50ml, it probably isn't the most affordable day cream. However if you're like me and tend to have reactive skin then I think this would be a great high SPF day cream for you. It might be a bit heavy for oily skin, but I find it suits my combination-dry skin well and I don't get visible shine throughout the day. I am pleased that it's a day cream and natural sunscreen combined in one, so there's no need to layer multiple creams as this is a pretty good multi-tasking moisturiser.

Hydrating and protection

Synergie Skin UberZinc is housed in a sleek, frosted, amber coloured airless jar with a dark, pop on-pop off lid. The airless jar prevents the ingredients from oxidizing, keeping it potent and fresh till you're ready to use it. The jar has a wide pump and an actuator that delivers controlled doses, eliminating the chance of contamination from double dipping into the product. The UberZinc is a moisturiser with UV protection SPF and formulated with antioxidants such as green tea and tomato skin to fight free radicals. It is a tinted, lightweight consistency with a pleasant sweet citrus scent. For an SPF it is actually quite easy to spread and smooth onto my face and neck. The UberZinc coats my skin in a protective barrier against the harsh Aussie sun, hydrating and treating the skin at the same time. It feels comfortable on, never sticky or tacky. I have combo oily skin and hate when sunscreens leave my face oily but the UberZinc is beautifully formulated because my skin looks oil-free with it on. The UberZinc doesn't ball or pill under makeup and I've never experienced irritation or sensitivity using the product. I've used both affordable and high-end sunscreens and I have to say that the formulation of this product is just gorgeous and worth splurging on.

Hydrates, Protects and Treats Skin

The UberZinc comes in a jar with a wide, push down pump. The sleek, sci fi design of the jar is sophisticated and very appealing. The pump packaging keeps the moisturiser hygenic because your finger never comes in contact with the product, preventing cross-contamination. The UberZinc is a moisturiser, sunscreen and treatment product in one. The product has a slight grey-beige tint to it with a lightweight moisturiser consistency that I dot around my face and gently work in. It leaves a slight white cast that I gently pat in with my hands (as the product instructions say) and the white cast disappears. For a product that has 21% Zinc, I assumed the formula would be thick and hard to spread but I'm happy to say that this is not the case with this lightweight moisturiser spf. The UberZinc hydrates my skin while providing sun protection. It has antioxidants such as green tea to neutralize free radicals. I have oily skin so I'm always worried when sunscreens leave my face oily but this formula doesn't. Its not completely matte but just has a hint of dewy-ness which just makes the skin look healthy. Makeup goes on layered over this product well without looking cakey or crumbly. I think Synergie Skin has a well thought out product (and packaging!) which I'm enjoying wearing this Spring season to get UV protection on my daily commute.

Best moisturiser I’ve ever tried

I can’t rate this high enough! I noticed after the first few months of using this that I had a huge improvement in my skin quality. I’ve now been using this for 5 years and won’t go back to any other moisturiser. It helped me so much through my acne journey and is great sun protection for my pale skin. I recommend it to my friends and family and would recommend it to you to! I have normal to dry, pale acne prone skin.
This is a lovely moisturiser with sun protection. I was really put off sunscreen for the first 20 years of my life due to bad experiences with supermarket sunscreens which were greasy, left a white cast and smelt strongly of chemicals. I was introduced to Uberzinc a few years ago and haven't stopped using since.  It's got a nice and light texture which is gentle (great for sensitive skin), isn't oily and doesn't leave a white cast. I use this as a base underneath my make up. My only reservation is that it's SPF is fairly low. SPF 15 is fairly low for use in Australian climate especially in warmer months when it gets really really sunny. I still need to use make up with SPF to provide adequate protection. 
I’ve been using Synergie Skin products for the past 5 months as recommended by my plastic surgeon, I was undergoing micro needling procedures at the time in preparation for face, neck & eye lift surgery which was performed 9 weeks ago. My daily routine commences with Ultracleanse, followed by applying Superserum + then I mix Pure-C & Vitamin B together & apply, lastly I apply Uber Zinc moisturiser which is a relatively new addition as I had been previously using Reclaim moisturiser prior to surgery. Added zinc is a bonus to use post surgery due to its healing qualities. In addition to this I use Ultimate A serum every 2nd or 3rd night. With the exception of the switch over of moisturiser I have been using the above routine daily for 5 months now & I can honestly say my skin felt & looked remarkably refreshed, glowing & soft prior to surgery. I like the fact that the serums & moisturiser are not greasy, they soak deeply into my skin & leave a soft & smooth feeling that lasts all day. Uber Zinc is slightly heavier than Reclaim due to the zinc component however it doesn’t feel heavy when applied.  As I have invested a great deal into my surgery I certainly don’t intend to compromise on skin care products. I can only compare my old product routine with Synergie Skin, the difference is so significant that I would not consider using any other product, you get what you pay for. 
I am using the Überzinc for 6 weeks now. At first I wasn't a fan, because it doesn't has the feel of a "normal" moisturizer. The texture is different. But when I finished my starterkit and got back to my original moisturizer I missed the Überzinc :-D It hydrates a lot more and leaves a protective layer on the face. That also works perfectly as a primer before applying make-up. I still think it is quote proxy for a SPF. But then it also helps my skin feel hydrated and calm during the way. A normal SPF doesn't do that. I have sensitive skin, redness, eczema around the eyes and dryness on the forehand and nose most of the time. Überzinc controlled that in combination with the Enlighten, A and B serum. Age: 33.
I absolutely love this product. I have oily skin so I’ve always found it hard to find a day moisturiser with spf that doesn’t make your skin oilier. Uberzinc is the best one I’ve found. It doesn’t make my skin oily or shiny at the end of the day. Did I mention I love it ❤️
I've tried a lot of sunscreens and this moisturizer sunscreen is one of the better ones out there. The consistency is lightweight with a fresh citrus scent. The moisturizer spf is tinted but I think it's more to ensure there is no white cast on the skin rather than to even out skin.  The lightweight consistentany makes the product smooth on to skin with ease and there's very little to no white cast on the skin. Patting it on as the product direction instructs helps minimize the white cast from my observations. Once on, my skin feels hydrated and the spf provides a protective layer over the skin from the uv rays. The antioxidants nourish skin while neutralizing free radicals.  I wear this to protect skin from my daily work commute and I can happily say that my skin is protected from the harsh sun. My skin is less red and blotchy with consistent use of this product. The packaging is a Sci fi looking tub with a press on dispenser. It's great because there's no contact with the product eliminating cross continuation. I would honestly repurchase this again as I enjoy the lightweight consistentany, zero while cast and how it leaves my skin looking matte which is rare with most spfs. 
Uber zinc is incredible, not only for the protection of my skin but the way it makes it feel and holds my make up. I just gently dab 1 pump over my face and instantly feel smooth and silky. My foundation stays perfect even the entire day.   I absolutely love synergy skin!

I’ve been using the Synergie Skin ÜberZinc for about a month now and absolutely love it.    The hydrating daily moisturiser which also provides broad spectrum sun protection is packaged in a brown cylindrical style jar which holds 50mls of product. After unscrewing the black lid there is a push-down top which dispenses the tinted moisturiser through a small hole.  But, the clever design of this jar also allows for this part of the jar to unscrew allowing access to the moisturiser when it starts to run low or the dispenser won’t work.    The formula contains 21 per cent pure zincoxide for environmental protection against sun exposure, is non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores, and contains pure green tea for potent antioxidant properties.  The moisturiser is very lightweight and silky smooth.    The moisturiser has a lovely citrus fragrance which makes it extra pleasant to use, and it also contains anti-inflammatory properties so it can be used as a night cream for problem skin.    I hate the feel of sunscreen products on my face but this is just heaven for me.   It spreads so easily and feels so light with no stickiness or greasiness. Although the instructions are to pat the moisturiser onto the skin rather than rubbing it in, I find it is easier to smooth the moisturiser over my skin to give an even cover and then pat gently.  This is a physical sunscreen which is designed to sit on the surface of the skin rather than being rubbed into the skin.    I have no problem with applying my BB cream over the ÜberZinc, and it also looks good just on its own. This product is just so comfortable and hydrating, but my problem is that hubby has almost confiscated it because it is just so good.  He has very sensitive skin and this sunscreen moisturiser is absolutely perfect for him – no irritation and no redness after a day on the golf course.   I would say the Synergie Skin ÜberZinc is the best and most comfortable sun protection product I have used on my face.  If this product is any indication of how good the other Synergie Skin products are then I look forward to trying more products from this brand.   .   
I am so impressed with this product. At first I thought this is more suitable for men/ teenager with acne since the ingredients is great to use at night for people with acne. The SPF inside is not as high as normal sunscreen which usually spf30 above.  I love the packaging, it dispense and keep the inside tightly closed and not touched by our fingers or dust.  The cream itself is not too thick or too runny, it’s just perfect.  It doesn’t smell strong but pleasant for me.  I love applying it to my face and neck in the morning. What a great product, my skin feel moisturised and looks dewy! 
I do like the way the dispenser (push-down) top of this product is designed.  It makes it easy to dispense a regular amount that fully covers my entire face and neck.  I also love the way this has a lot of zinc in it which is a physical blocker (as opposed to a chemical blocker) and it just makes more sense in my mind when it comes to my health and the fact that less chemicals are needed to protect my skin from the sun with the use of this product.   The colour of this product is very see-able when I get it out of the container but it disappears when I've put it on my face.   During the day I know it's on my face because I get that occasional nostalgic whiff of zinc sometimes (which I don't mind - it just reminds me that I've got sunscreen moisturiser on and I don't need to worry!).    It's nostalgic because I was a kid in the 70's on the beach with that coloured zinc put across my nose and cheeks while on the beach - hey we did have some form of sunscreen in the 70's afterall!!  I have oily combination ageing skin and this is a hydrating but not greasy daily moisturiser that I can rely on to care for my skin.  My skin gets moisturised, nourished and protected with this.   It does feel nurturing but not in a greasy way at all.  It seems to sink into my skin fast after application and it creates a good base for make-up too.   I love the way I can put it safely all over my face including my eyes area - afterall it's my skin around my eyes that really needs that sunscreen too.  (I don't like moisturisers with sunscreens that say I should avoid the eyes.)  This is versatile too because I can use it as a night-cream as it's especially good to oily or pimple prone skins to help it overnight with all that natural zinc in it.  So it's quite a fuss-free moisturiser that does all kinds of good deeds for the skin.   
Looking for overpriced spf moisturizer? Look no further. With 21% of ZnO, it will give about 30SPF .The article  quote from The Best (and Worst) Sunscreen Ingredients: What to Look for When You're Buying a New Sunscreen: "According to Dr. Denis Dudley (a.k.a. "The Sunscreen Doc"), for every one percent of zinc oxide, you get 1.6 SPF units."  FDA requires sunscreens to be tested at 2mg/cm², so average sized face apparently gets covered with About 1.3 grams. Now....this is only for the face. Add neck/chest....you will  run out of this 50mL tub pretty quickly! That is if you apply this cream as an spf moisturizer to give you sufficient protection, very liberally.  In Australia you have to pay for the cream to be labeled accordingly over spf15 a lot. So many companies would just stick to label it with spf15 and call it a day. (For example one of Murad spf50 moisturizers with exact same formula on our market is labeled spf15. Murad company did not need to retest their formula just to be sold here as spf50,  with same methods to get same results). The cream itself is good, average moisturizer. When using it, I use no other skincare or just light water based essence/serum, as my skin feels just too coated. It is combo to oily and with big pores. Always less is more with skincare, but need sun protection having sun damaged pigmentation areas on the face.  INGREDIENT LIST (from their website): WATER (AQUA), ZINC OXIDE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, GLYCERIN, ISOAMYL LAURATE, METHYLPROPANEDIOL, CETEARYL OLIVATE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, SORBITAN OLIVATE, CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) PEEL OIL, LIMNANTHES ALBA (MEADOWFOAM) SEED OIL, MACADAMIA INTEGRIFOLIA SEED OIL, SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, HYDROLYZED TOMATO SKIN, TOCOPHEROL (VITAMIN E), CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, CETEARETH 20, CYAMOPSIS TETRAGONOLOBA (GUAR) GUM, CAMELLIA SINENSIS (GREEN TEA) LEAF EXTRACT, PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS (SWEET ALMOND) OIL, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, CARTHAMUS TINCTORIUS (SAFFLOWER) SEED OIL, ROSA CANINA (ROSEHIP) FRUIT OIL, OENOTHERA BIENNIS (EVENING PRIMROSE) OIL, OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL, CALENDULA OFFICINALIS FLOWER EXTRACT, CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER OIL, OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) LEAF EXTRACT, XANTHAN GUM, GLYCINE SOJA (SOYBEAN) OIL, PHENYLPROPANOL, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM PHYTATE, ALCOHOL (GRAIN DERIVED), SODIUM CHLORIDE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, CITRAL, D-LIMONENE, LINALOOL. Leaves my skin looking glowy, not shiny. Have no white on the face from Zn. My skin is light-med.  Smells citrusy, pleasant. And spreads easy. Comes in a glass tub. So using it up quickly to get  an adequate protection, 50mL will be used up very quickly! And no chance of it getting "contaminated" and going bad...I do have small spatula for the cream, so do not dip my fingers in the jar.   Again, tot pricey for an spf cream, very pricey for a  basic moisturizer too. Formula itself is good. Just protects skin.But for this result there are so many creams on the market that can do same for the fraction of the price. 
This would have to be one of the more exxy products i now use (after having tried it at a recent expo i attended),but i seriously am in love with it. We all know that a sunscreen is a non - negotiable (wrinkles / dark spots and you know,melanomas are never a good look),but finding one that feels good / looks good (no white flashback in pics,no Casper impersonations in real life) is a nightmare...enter this baby. Synergie Skin (a brand i had never previously known about before this expo) Überzinc is a hydrating,skintone evening moisturiser with 21 per cent zinc oxide,that works as a physical barrier to protect skin from premature ageing.The moisturiser is formulated with SPF15 and contains vitamin E, green tea extract and hydrolysed tomato skin, which work to provide antioxidant protection against free radical damage,as well as making this cream feel velvety and soft,without any greasy texture to contend with,but what sets this apart is the fact that it has a slight,tone correcting hue that makes skin glow (and it actually suits my fair skintone),as well as the fact that this is also able to be used,get this,AT NIGHT,as a nightime skincare product (i have never tried it at night,as i really don't fancy the feel of an SPF sitting on my face at night,BUT if you can only take a couple of products away with you on a trip,it is great this can be at least four products in one (day / night cream / SPF / light skin tone corrector. Another thing is the beautiful ingredients....green tea / tomato skin and Vit E,all of which act like skincare,but also adds that layer of protection (and did i mention the scent...a gorgeous,fresh citrus joy,that just screams summer and freshness).But what of that packaging ? Glad you asked,as this is where this shines.A very unisex looking tub (deep brown with black lettering and accents...so not "girly" at all,in fact it leans more masculine if anything) with a hygienic push down lid (you open top and find an inner lid that you pump down to dispense,so now contaminating this baby with your fingers) that delivers a metered dose (no waste).The tinted cream (lightweight,very pleasant to use and wear,even in high temps and humidity in imagine...i haven't had a true Aussie summer day like that yet to test it) gives a delicate "evening" of the skin,but not enough to actually change the hue of your skin (so my fair skin can use it every bit as much as my olive skinned hubby,who,by the way,NEVER uses a sunscreen,but is now hooked and only EVER wants this,such is the comfort level of this cream). OK,so this is a pretty great product,so is there a negative ? in honesty,YES.An Aussie summer demands a high SPF all the time,and this,with an SPF of only 15 isn't quite enough for my liking,so i wear this only as a "cityblock" kind of product (only minimal exposure,like walking to the car from a shop etc,and for short periods),and the cost is verging on moderate luxe end ($115 for a 50ml tub),so getting to used to this will prove an expensive addiction,so i am not sure that hubby's request can be fulfilled.It does play well under makeup,but i will need to wait and see how this stands up against Whitsunday weather (hot and humid like nothing else). All in all,i do love this product,but the low SPF and high pricepoint make it something i would try and find a replacement for to be honest. TIP:Apply 20 mins prior to hitting the outside world.
