I hate to be the voice of negativity here, but this product just didn't work for me. I like the ingredients list and the tube packaging, but the sunblock itself was just too heavy and too whitish for my skin. (I'm pale, but not *that* pale, and I'm oily.) It might work better for drier complexions. I've ended up using it on my neck and chest, since those areas aren't as demanding!
This is the closest to an HG sunscreen I've found so far. It offers great protection, even through extreme activity. It blends in nicely. And I think it actually makes my skin lighter ( a good thing)
Update - still love this but now I love UV natural spf 30 a little more
ok ladies, ive spent the last few years shopping, buying, trying every natural, organic, good for you, products out there. I have had a very hard time finding suncreens that are natural, gentle, non pore clogging, non GREASY. My skin is sensitive, acne prone, and worst of all approaching 40. This sunscreen is matte, a little white when you first put it on but it seemed to fade a little, non greasy, Ive only had it on today so ill update you later, The only thing i can say so far is i do feel it on my face. Oh by the way it has Pomegranite, and lots of other antioxidants!
I was looking for an organic daily sunscreen and came across this product at the Vitamin Shoppe. It applies with a whitish cast, which does disappear after a few minutes. It's a great base for mineral cosmetics, and I have noticed my skin looking a lot better, especially around my eyes where I was getting "tired" looking. It is not sufficient as a moisturizer by itself in the winter-time, but is excellent for spring/summer. I would buy this product again.
This is a good all-mineral sunscreen that reminds me of June Jacobs Micronized Sheer SPF 30, but without the high price tag. Bit of a white cast, but you get that with all mineral sunscreens at this concentration, and you can always put some powder over it. I got this at Whole Foods and I'm pleased I found an all-mineral sunscreen that is cheap enough to use on my body!
I've been looking for a natural organic sunscreen with zinc oxide that I can use on a daily basis as a moisturiser.
I last tried Lavera's anti-aging sunscreen which I quite like, but find it's very tacky and makes my face feel oily. So I decided to try Desert Essence's Age Reversal Pomegranate Mineral Sunscreen and I'm very happy that I did.
It's very thick, but dries to a much more matte, dry-touch finish than the lavera one which is great. It's also got higher spf of 30 which is important as I use retin-a and live in the tropics. The product does tend to separate a bit, so sometimes I'll squeeze it and oil will come out, so must give it a bit of a shake beforehand. It will also leave a slight whitish tint but I'm ok with that. Highly recommended.
