I use this one on my entire face (+ ears and neck) except for the eyes because it makes my eye makeup crease.
Protects against both UVA and UVB.
Non-comedogenic, so it shouldn't cause any acne.
It doesn't seem to break me out.
It goes on easily and doesn't make my face look greasy.
It's easy to carry around.
It smells good.
It tries fast.
It says you should reapply at least every 2 hours, what a shame.
I found this stick for about $8 at TJ Maxx. While I was skeptical because it's such a small tube, I must say I'm impressed. It takes a few applications to break it in so to speak, but once you do it spreads nicely over the skin on whatever areas you want to target (for me, it's always the eyes, forehead, and laugh lines). The smell is a very strong citrus, but I don't mind it. What I am most surprised about is how long this is going to last. The rate this stick is going down with each use is sooo slow. I've used it 4 times already, and haven't even come close to having to wind it up yet! It's gonna last forever :)
Everything I've been looking for! Maybe $20 for a sun stick seems expensive, but when it comes to preserving your youth, your skin is your best asset. I'd rather pay 20 bucks for a sunscreen than have to pay thousands for lasers and peels down the road. And I am an unfortunate soul with pale skin that burns in about 30 seconds. I'm a stickler for daily sunscreen, but reapplication throughout the day? Not so much. I'd searched reviews for several years for some high-SPF sunscreen with a portability and convenience rating of "10". Everything either had crap packaging, didn't work, or made people break out. I must admit, Arden is a such a low-profile brand these days, that I just saw them as stodgy and dated; I didn't think to look at their products at all. But after wandering aimlessly around a department store speaking to some SAs who were uninformed about their owns brands' products for women my age (36 looks old to 22, of course), I found myself at the EA counter. And I wound up with two HG products: an amazing foundation and this little stick. The weather has just turned truly sunny in the Midwest, so I finally got to take this baby for a ride. It's about three inches high and can fit in the tiniest bag; it's a bright yellow tube so you can find it in seconds. It has the texture and color of plain Chapstick, if a bit silkier and not as waxy. It smells a bit like citronella, but it's not obnoxious. It feels a bit greasy, but it really didn't interfere with my (Elizabeth Arden) foundation and didn't make me shiny. It's water and sweat-resistant. I didn't break out even though I have a very oily t-zone and have rather sensitive skin. But most importantly, I didn't get one bit of redness of freckling from the sun. Hallelujah! MUAers, we really need to look more closely at Elizabeth Arden products!
