This product is almost identifical to the SPF 55 version. The SPF 55 version has 10% HOMOSALATE (which is not Helioplex) and the SPF 70 version has 15% HOMOSALATE. That seems to be the only difference according to the "active ingrediants". The Helioplex (AVOBENZONE) remains exactly the same at 3%.
My subjective tests failed to reveal SPF 70 is significantly better than SPF 55. The good news is that the SPF 55 version is an excellent sunscreen, and quite possibly the best in the market. The SPF 70 protects the person just as well, but not by 20%-25% margin as one would reasonably expect with 15 SPF increase.
Few other things of note:
1)There is no such thing as perfect sun protection except for staying out of sunshine all together. Your skin will become noticeably darker even after ample application of this sunscreen, but not by much.
2)You should put on ample amount of sunscreen to get any reasonably good sun protection. Please do not use skimpy amounts unless you want to get a good tan without sunburns.
3)DO NOT APPLY OVER THE EYES AND THE FOREHEAD (put on a cap). If you have been stung in the eyes with sunscreen before you know you would rather avoid the experience.
4)This product is water resistent and does not wear off easily. So I highly recommend this for swimmers and beach bums.
5)The SPF 70 version leaves noticeably more residue than the SPF 55 version. So if you want less residue with almost as good sun protection, I recommend the SPF 55 version. The overall residue is very much acceptable and is not readily visible to the eye.
My experience using this sunscreen is that you don't even know you have it on. It doesn't have a detectable smell and it is very sheer. However, this sunscreen stays on, is waterproof and doesn't block your pores. It guards against BOTH UvA and UvB and the Helioplex technology is a hit with dermatologists. I highly recommend this product and think it's totally worth the cost.
A few hours after I applied it to my face and neck, the burn started. I realized what was going on so I started washing it off with some water. That evening, my face was blistered, red, and felt like I had been pepper-sprayed. The next few days, my rash continued with small blisters and scaly formations all over my neck, ears, and face. My skin felt like a cat's tongue. People stared at my face and wondered how I could possibly screw myself that badly.
WTF! I do not have sensitive skin. I do not have allergies. Whatever is in this product is messed up.
