A little goes a long way, too.
Scott Waters
By water resistant, if you mean you only have to reapply everytime you get out of the water, then yes this product is water resistant.
JONATHAN F SCOTT
Product is difficult to spread on skin; thick; leaves a white haze and doesn't rub in.

I bought this product 2 months ago and tested it first on a sunny day when I knew I'd be outside long enough to see results. I smeared a dot on each shoulder - should've put it all over because I ended up being out much longer than planned and burned each shoulder except for the quarter sized pale dot where the Mexitan had been applied. My husband and I use it frequently on ourselves and our 3 little boys - no one has gotten burned yet. We do apply it 20-30 minutes before going out so that it has time to work properly. The smell is not offensive, just clean and fresh smelling. I have very sensitive skin but haven't had any rashes, so that makes me happy.

Our only complaint is that if you rub it too long or apply to an area where you already just applied it, it can slough or roll off in little bits. It spreads very easily unlike some of the other sunscreens that are safer or more natural. Takes a little practice and getting used to - just spread quickly and thoroughly and don't overspread or overapply. I'm much better with it, my husband is not as patient, but getting there.

If you are swimming, heavily applied areas can whiten, but the excess disappears with a gentle swipe. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, but hey, it's not full of chemicals so I think I can handle some streaking. We do exercise common sense by being careful to watch for signs of burning even when we're using suncreen, but we haven't had that problem so far with this product. So far our experience with this product has been positive.

4/15/13 Just wanted to add this: Another poster reminded me of something I didn't mention when I wrote this review: this is a mineral, or "physical" sunscreen, not a chemical type.

My wife and I recently spent ten days in Mexico and she used this product to cover most of her torso and back. In years before when we spent excessive amounts of time in the sun she would develop a rash/ water bubbles around her neck, chest, and shoulder area. We did not know if it was sun poisoining, an allergic reaction to sunscreen, a heat rash, etc... We just knew she had a problem. So we decided to get an oxide based, naturals sunscreen to see if this would solve the problem. The past three years she has broken out but this past trip she never broke out once. We would spend approximately 4 hours in the sun in the morning and three in the afternoon and would apply once in the morning and once before heading back into the sun for the afternoon. She never once got burned and never once got the rash. This is a great product and I would reccomend to anyone. It leaves you with a great looking tan without the dangerous burn.

However, the product does have some quirks. The product is runny unlike most oxides which are thick and goopy, but it does not soak in good leaving the skin a little white. Not a whole lot but just gives a whitish tint. My wife is usually a freak about stuff like that but the slight tint did not bother her. This is a physical blocker that does not soak into the skin like coppertone or other benzone based creams which absorb into the skin. It actually creates a physical blocking agent on top of the skin. Another quirk is if you rub it too much it begins to cake on the skin and "flake". That was weird and have never seen anything like that before. Also once the caking area gets wet it will come off in the water but the sunblock still works. The first time it happened we were afraid that that area would get burnt but it never did.

This sunscreen is like no other I have ever used, and I am not sure if it is in a good way. It does not absorb into the skin like normal lotions. Instead, it creates a film on top of the skin. Do not apply too much and smooth over skin quickly, again do not try to rub it- just spread and let dry before dressing.
It peels pretty bad if you apply too much.
It did prevent sunburn on my recent cruise and 6 hour open boat excursion in Cozumel. I bought this due to the fact that our reef system is damaged by chemical sunscreens and spending time exploring reefs, I never want to damage them. For that reason, I would buy again. Just beware that the application takes a little practice.

A little goes a long way with Mexitan SPF 30. It is very important to make sure you rub it in right away until you can't see any white on your skin. If you leave white spots, they will quickly dry and flake off creating a shedding effect. It goes on as a creamy white liquid, spreads quickly but also dries quickly. Seems to protect just fine, no problems with sunburn or irritation. The only problem is that it seems to dry the skin slightly so using a moisturizer after bathing is helpful. I am very fair and using regular sunscreens seemed to irritate my skin after several hours so this product works well for me as it doesn't contain any of the damaging chemicals used in most popular brands of sunscreen.

Went to Cancun, and tours to Chichen Itza, and Xcaret. All tourist info said use biodegradable suntan lotion to protect the coral reefs. Sure, they had lots in hotel gift shop, but I knew it would be pricey. Got this ahead of time and following others' recommendations, it worked great. Use a small amount at a time and make sure you rub it in. Or - it will leave a white layer on top of your skin that will flake off. It is NOT greasy after rubbing in - Yeah! Went in the ocean and only reapplied to face and shoulders once during the day. Only got burned on the spots I missed when applying it.
