This is a really good body sunscreen (haven't tried it on my face). It feels like a body lotion and rubs in easily with no white cast or greasy residue. Right after applying I don't have the greasy, shiny "I just applied sunscreen" look to my body, which amazes me since most make me look like I just bathed in baby oil. It gives excellent protection too--I don't burn or tan when I wear this and reapply like I should. This is impressive because, though I keep myself pale with sunscreen, I tan *very* easily with no sunscreen. I took one off for the orange Creamsicle scent (I hate Creamsicles!) but it probably isn't an issue for most people. The price is great too (around $7). I will repurchase.
PROS: Smells great. Cute color of product. Finally a nonsticky, thin sunblock!
CONS: I wouldn't use this on my face unless I needed water resistant on the face (still too thick and slightly oily.)
REMOVAL TIPS: If using this one the face and If you get clogged pores, you may want to remove this with something like a cleansing oil before using your regular cleanser so that it doesn't clog your pores.
ALTERNATES: For the face, when I don't need water resistant, I prefer Trader Joe's Enrich spf15 for that. And I personally love Replenix Antioxidant Moisturizer SPF 50 (in silver tube) for great moisture and spf protection that doesn't bother my sensitive skin.

This provides great sun protection for an SPF 15. In some spots I missed, I had redness, which shows that when *properly* applied (not in a rush, as I had) this stuff works great.
Yes, this does have a smell of orange creamsicles or sherbert when first applied, as someone mentioned in reviews of some of their other products. That might not sound good, but believe me when I say that I really found it pleasant. Once you are out in the sun, you do not smell a thing.
This says it has a photostable UV filter, so this broad spectrum protection will last. I did not use this on my face, and I wouldnt try to because I am prone to breakouts and this is not made for faces nor oil free. But for body, A+.
