This review is from: Badger All Natural Sunscreen, SPF 30, Unscented 2.9 oz (87 ml) (Misc.)
I'm a redhead with freckles. I've been searching for 4 years for a safe, effective, non-greasy and non-whitening alternative to my chemical sunblock, trying many from the EWG's top sunscreen lists each year. I had tried the badger sunblock in the purple tube 2 years ago and found it too greasy and too whitening. for some reason I gave this tan-colored tube of badger a try to see if they had improved the formula. yay! they have!
this product is not perfect, but is pretty good in many of my requirements:
doesn't burn me (A+)
doesn't turn me white (A-)
not greasy (B+)
doesn't turn my clothes or furniture white (B-)
if you rub it in well it's neither too greasy nor too white.
-after some time I do find that white lines accumulate around my inner elbows, but I just rub that back in.
-some of my clothes get light white lines on them, but it seems to come out in the wash.
-i am still a bit conscious of sitting on a friend's couch or car, knowing that it will get greasy and maybe a little white. so I do have to consider at what point in the day I am putting it on and where I will be sitting.
