IT broke me out! I couldn’t use it anymore.. I’m sensitive to a lot of sunscreens and it’s one of those which my skin doesn’t accept :(

OMG... amazing sunscreen and now my HG! I will never buy another body sunscreen again! A few years ago I started trying to phase out chemical laden products, particularly chemical based sunscreens (I.e. avobenzone). While I have found a few decent mineral based sunscreens for the face I hadn’t found any great ones for the body. Everything for the body that I tried was too thick, too pasty white, or too ridiculously expensive. Or still contained some form of chemical sunscreen. Therefore for the last few years I have been reluctantly using Palmer’s cocoa butter moisturizing sunscreen and Hawaiian Tropic sheer sunscreens which are laden with chemicals. Not only are these sunscreens not safe, but like most sunscreens you can feel them on the skin and smell them all day, so I have dreaded putting them on. I ran across Australian Gold Botanicals at Ulta and was stoked to see that these sunscreens contain only zinc and titanium, and also include no other unhealthy ingredients like parabens. At 16 bucks a pop these are definitely at a higher price point than most sunscreens but pretty low for mineral based sunscreens which I have seen run 30.00! The very first thing I noted about the sunscreen was the amazing smell. It does not smell like sunscreen in the slightest. It does have a quite noticeable, tropical fruit type scent that I don’t mind - it is unusual for me to not be bothered by the smell of sunscreen because every single sunscreen I’ve ever used smells like, well, sunscreen. Except for this one. The consistency is light and almost whipped, and spreads on very easily. The cool thing is that within seconds, it dries to a powdery finish. There’s nothing heavy, greasy, or FILMY about this sunscreen (I emphasize filmy because I hate products that make you feel like you’re wearing a mask on the skin - some La Roche Posay sunscreens have made me feel this way and ugh!). It absorbs quickly. The only con is that is does leave the skin feeling a bit dry. However, in my very hot climate, having sticky skin doesn’t feel good either. In short this sunscreen has the trifecta - feels nice, smells nice, and is safe - and I am a customer for life!

This is a very nice alternative to more expensive face sunscreen and is slightly tinted, which is nice. The color is pale so if you are a darker toned person, it will likely be too light. It is not greasy, does not interact with foundation, and is comfortable to wear. The price is right, $13.99, a little expensive, but it does not sting my eyes if I get sweaty, and is compatible with makeup. I have been using Skinceuticals Matte sunscreen which is VERY expensive. With this one, I feel I am getting better coverage. Definitely one of the best choices out there.

I wrote a review for the tan extender as well, I love these 2 products! Really helps give you an amazing summer tan in just a couple hours under the sun! Works ever better when you apply the moisturizer tan extender afterwards! I can't believe I hadn't heard of this brand until now, it seriously changed my tanning game! A definite summer must have (and it smells just like the lotion which is heavenly btw ladies).

This stuff is cheap, comes in a huge bottle and smells really good! I can't live without it. It's a definite summer must have! I apply it after the shower and sometimes after tanning and it definitely extends your tan! I also use the tan extender while tanning. This stuff is great!
