Other sunscreens soak in because they're chemical barrier sunscreens (which BTW leads to harmful substances soaking into your blood stream). I'll admit those dry touch spray on sunscreens are quicker and more convenient, but my health is worth a few minutes of application of this stuff.
So if you don't like a sunscreen that doesn't totally soak in, has a slight white sheen to it, needs reapplication after getting wet...do yourself a favor and find something else. If you want a moisturizing sunscreen that is safe to use, won't mess up your hormone balance, won't give you cancer later in life, and don't mind sacrificing a little convenience then buy away. As others have posted, here are some tips to get the most out of this product...
1. A little goes a long way - if you glob, you'll end up streaky and white
2. Only rub until the color disappears - if you keep rubbing it begins to ball up and flake off
3. Apply BEFORE going out - usually about 15-20 minutes to let it soak in a bit
4. Re-apply after getting wet - it's water resistant, not waterproof
One final thought. Many countries outlaw mainstream sunscreen because they kill coral reefs. Yet we use those products everyday. Read labels, do some research, be informed, and stay healthy!
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
