*Rubs in really well, and doesn't leave you white unlike most "physical block" sunscreens. In fact, this rubbed in better than the other tube of regular "non-natural" sunscreen I used (Coppertone Water Babies, Pure & Simple).
*Not greasy, shiny, or heavy. Comfortable to have on my skin all day.
*Waterproof, as promised on the tube.
*Protected me well. I had no sunburns.
*Natural ingredients. No parabens etc. Good EWG ratings. Though note, this is still a chemical-block sunscreen, and not a physical block.
*Stock up, because you'll have to use a little bit more of this sunscreen than your regular "non-natural" sunscreen, because this sunscreen is thicker. But note, thicker does not mean harder to rub in. This was much much easier to rub in for me! (See 1st bullet point.)
*Slight smell, which bothered my slightly but may not bother others. I don't know if it's the shea butter (which I don't like) or something else in the ingredient list. The smell stayed on my swimwear slightly too, until I finally came home from vacation and washed my swimsuit in the washing machine on gentle cycle.
First, I like its consistency. It's thick, similar to a shea butter based moisturizing cream. That means it doesn't run, leak out of the bottle, or drip while you're using it. It's also easier to see where you've applied it. Despite that, it rubs in rather easily and doesn't require as heavy of a coating. I'm a guy with a fair amount of hair on my arms and legs and I've definitely used far worse when it comes to potential clumping and gooping when applying to those areas. It works in and only really shows if you've put a lot on.
Sun protection as far as avoiding sunburns has been great. I've spent several hours at the pool, in a lake, and playing golf without a single burn to speak of. I haven't felt the need to reapply even after a dip or some heavy sweating. That being said, you can see it run off a bit when you do, so I'm sure if you had a full day in the sun it'd be wise to consider doing so.
The negative for it is true of most sunblocks. It inevitably works its way into your eyes, and when it does, it stings. Taking a dip or trying to wipe around your eyes gently with a t-shirt or towel is only so helpful. It seems to happen a bit more quickly than with my old sunblock.Read more ›

Works very well but it needs to be reapplied after going in the water. It's not as oily as most other sunscreen brands so that's an advantage. Read morePublished 3 months ago by loveamazon
