This is the only sunscreen i have ever used that maintained a moisture barrier without breaking me out. My skin is super sensitive and I have a sun allergy that effects my day to day life, this stuff affords me the protection I need without all the grease and side effects of wearing sun screen daily!
This suncreen is amazing! It glides on easily, does NOT smell like a sunscreen but has a pleasant citrus smell. It provides an SPF of 30, but you don't feel like you're wearing sunscreen. It dries so quickly and doesn't leave you feeling sticky! My favorite part is that it has patent-pending Carotenoids! The main ingredient in most sunscreens protecting skin from damage is Avobenzone. However, Avobenzone begins breaking down within an hour of sun exposure. Thus, the recommendation to reapply frequently, which the majority of people either do not do or don't do often enough. Soooo, here's the kicker: you apply a sunscreen with a high SPF, but it stops working long before 2-3 hours!!
By choosing a sunscreen with Carotenoids, it will provide all day protection! Carotenoids are algae with antioxidant properties that become more powerful when exposed to UV light. It acts like sunglasses that darken in UV light. So, with carotenoids, the sunscreen actually gets stronger & stronger with UV exposure rather than breaking down. The Carotenoids stabilize the avobenzone for effective UVA protection...sort of like putting up an umbrella over the avobenzone so it won't break down and will keep on doing it's job. It's truly amazing advanced technology and, living in the south, I need it. You will still need to re-apply after sweating, swimming or drying off with a towel.
This sunscreen has a fresh smell and melts into your skin. It is not greasy so you can get dressed right after you put it on. Can be reapplied as needed without that greasy feeling. Great for kids, too!
