Love this stuff. Doesn't run. Doesn't melt in the car. Doesn't wash off until you take it off. As a red head who loves to windsurf, a sunscreen that neither sweats off not runs in my eyes is worth every penny. Plus it's lasted pretty well, and days I have worn it I haven't burned at all. Or felt that "OMG MY FACE is gonna crack right off!" thing at the end of the day.
I was looking for a natural sunscreen to wear on my face while playing beach volleyball in hot weather. I saw an interview with Alix Klineman (pro volleyball player) and she recommended this. A lot of sunscreens are waterproof, meaning going in water won't immediately rinse them off but finding one that won't sweat off is special! Another big plus is that it doesn't cause me to break out. Once it is on, I don't feel it. It doesn't feel greasy. I put it on my skin to warm for a few seconds then draw some lines then rub it in with my finger tips.
Works great for light and light tan skin. If your not use to non-cream applications, it can be strange for a bit but you get use to it - since bad unhealthy sunscreen gets absorb in the skin while this stays on more. Going more eco-friendly is never the most convenient thing, but having less plastic in packaging is the right direction.
Con: the printing inks on the paper labeling are not soy/algae base inks
I used this while in Grand Cayman and it was well worth the money! No sunburn, no break outs, no melting in hot car/black day pack, eco-friendly tube, travel-friendly size, and ALL NATURAL! This is a dream come true and it smells yummy!!! I just used body heat from my hands to warm the top of the stick, apply directly to face and rubbed between hands to apply all over! Even though Im light skinned, it does give a lighter tint to you if you really layer it on, but its very easy to use and it really does work! I wont use anything else now because I know I can enjoy my time at the beach and not come home looking like a lobster! THANK YOU!!!
