I bought this on sale and it was not a good purchase for me. I was looking for a sunscreen to wear on my face underneath my make-up. This lotion was super thick, never really felt like to absorbed into my skin, and within an hour of applying my make-up I looked oily and one hot mess. I tried to use this product for my body as an alternative to tossing it out or trying to give it away. Sadly, I didn't like how it felt on my skin. Pretty much made me feel and look greasy all over.

Got this on clearance. It is an okay product. It leaves a sticky film so you always know you have it on. It's not easy to smooth on. It's thick. It is way too oily for the face. I don't even know if it's waterproof because it doesn't say so on the packaging but on the back it says to reapply 80 mins after swimming.

I found this sunscreen at my local Dollar Tree. What I love about it is that it only has a slight sunscreen smell, which is unusual for sunscreens with this high of an SPF. I do not use this on my face because I'm sensitive to avobenzone and because it leaves a sheen on the skin. The slight oiliness is actually a pro for me because it gives my skin a sheen which I like; almost like I smoothed baby oil on my skin. I can see how some people might not like this or the slight stickiness but it doesn't bother me. I like how the bottle looks, not like a typical sunscreen bottle. If I can find this again at the Dollar Tree, I will def. repurchase!

I like this high SPF sunscreen. I see many people say it's too greasy. But I noticed the shiny residue was also mostly absorbed. It offers superb protection and is a good all-over sunscreen for serious protection. It smells very nice, not like a sunscreen at all.

I purchased this sunscreen for $1 in a Dollar Tree store. It's perfectly satisfactory for general, outdoor, body sunscreen use. I basically use this as a backup. It's slightly heavy to apply, which is why I wouldn't wear it on my face, versus my Hawaiian Tropic Baby SPF50, or another (Avon) regular favorite of mine. Still, something is better than nothing at all. Inoffensive scent and lasts reasonably well, if you follow the directions on the packaging (commonsense).

i have purchased 3 of these so far this year. i am very pleased. what i like most about this sunscreen is that it doesnt clog my pores and "retains SPF after 80 minutes of activity in the water or sweating." i ONLY use this when i exercise outdoors without any makeup. this is the first sunscreen i have used in my entire life that didnt break me out which surprised the crap out of me. if i let the application sink in i dont experience an oily residue. i usually apply a serum first, after that sinks in i apply this over it. i also appreciate that it contains vitamins A & E.
active ingredients~ 3% Avobenzone (which i know many avoid but in this product it doesnt irritate me) , 15% Homosalate, 5% Octisalate, 10% Octothecrylene, and 6% Oxybenzonesince. Inactive ingredients~ water, butylene, mircocrystalline, cellulose, glyceryl stearate, behenyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol, diethylhexyl syringylidenemalonate, tocopherol, retinyl palmitate, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, stearic acid, palmitic acid, lauryl alcohol, myristyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, lecithin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, chlorphenesin, cellulose gum, butylated PVP, disodium EDTA.
i know this contains alot of stuff but if it works for me then i am thrilled especially if i can find it in a drugstore. when i wear this i NEVER experience a sunburn nor any slight redness from sun exposure. in a nutshell this product has not caused me to breakout or sunburn. nor does this cause any stinging even underneath my eyes where i slather it most. i will continue to use this when i exercise or swim outdoors. i would pay full price for this since i love the results so much.

This sunscreen is thick! I have dry skin that usually absorbs body lotion on my face just fine but this left my face shiny and slick. It's like it's whipped too. I must use powder over this and sometimes it doesn't feel like it's enough. I don't like the top design because you must make sure to wipe away all the sunscreen or else it'll leave a oily ring on your dresser. The sunscreen works very well and I have no complaints on its effectiveness.

This review is for Faces SPF 70 Lotion. I wear sunscreen daily because of Retin-A. I don't burn when I wear this, even though I apply less than 1 tablespoon only in the morning. It says it's non-greasy, but it makes my face really shiny, so I have to wear mattifying powder on top. The bottle is sturdy and stands on its cap. The formula is thick so it doesn't leak out. The price is good, similar to other d/s s/s. I wouldn't buy it again because there are so many other sunscreens to try out.

I have a bottle of the Faces formula that I tried over the summer. I am cautious about sunscreens so I first tried it on my hands and neck. Immediatley I knew it was WAY too greasy. My neck felt oily and moist for hours. I never used this on my face because it would have been disgustingly slick on my combo to oily skin.

Earlier this year I built two outdoor structures, and I was outside in the direct sun for 5 hours every afternoon. I was on a team of 12 women and I was the only non-burnt one. I mean, absolute 100% protection. It is too oily for me to use on my face unless I'm doing manual labor, but great for daily body ss.

I am comparing this item to the NutraShield Dual Defense with SPF 30. During summer, I used them back-to-back on a daily basis and I find that I prefer the SPF 30 more. The higher SPF item is just too sticky for my arms and legs, which are "normal" in terms of dryness and texture. (Sometimes the SPF 70 will leave a greasy residue on door knobs and other highly reflective surfaces--embarassing.) I'm not sure how this will change during the winter as I do get itchy winter skin, but I would only use the SPF 70 if you have dry skin or are using it on dryer parts of the body that will be exposed to the sun. Both the SPF 30 and the SPF 70 in this line cost the same, so there's no economic advantage to getting one formula over the other.
(Copied and edited from my review of the Nutrashield Dual Defense SPF 30) This is one of the BEST bang-for-your-buck, UVA/ UVB sunscreens at drugstore. I've been researching and shopping around for a budget sunscreen for quite a while now, and at not even $2/ ounce, this lotion is great considering all the pros listed below. Just shake the bottle and apply the lotion liberally, at least 20 minutes before you go out of the house.
- it has a subtle powdery fragrance, but the chemical "sunscreen" smell is barely detectable
- it has antioxidants
- the packaging is opaque, stable, and generous: The bottle is thick and won't explode all over the insides of your handbag, and the cap is secure.
- this sunscreen is affordable and is easy accessible at drugstores, Target, and Walmart, so you can re-apply without having to worry about your pocketbook
- might not be good for those with sensitive skin, due to avobenzone being the primary active ingredient, and it is (slightly) fragranced
- the bottle often makes a "farting" noise when you squeeze product out
- it can be heavy and cumbersome, especially if you have a small bag and need to maximize space, and--due to the design of the bottle--getting the last bits of lotion can be a hassle

This stuff started off fine.. but when I put it on my face it's just a greasy mess! I put some on my arms too because I don't like to burn or anything so I keep every inch of my skin that shows covered. It leaves my arms feeling sticky and oily! UGH!
I bought two of these one for the face and the regular one.. not only are the two formulas the exact same thing but you get ripped off by buying the faces because it's smaller portion same formula but same price as the regular.... It would've been a complete waste of money if it wasn't that bad in price because of their 5$ off coupon on their website which ended up to about 3$ each bottle from wallyworld. but I don't think it's worth the money for everyday use! Way to greasy and messy!

i really like this sunscreen, it is pretty good, except for the fact that i cant put it on my face or else it will really sting and burn my eyes...so i use the neutrogena sheer for my face. it would be five lippies but the sunscreen is quite greasy if you apply a large amount to your skin and then go out in very hot weather. Otherwise, good buy.

Yet another sunscreen that stains clothing. I apply it to my face, neck, chest and sometimes arms..It isn't as oily as some other brands but stains necklines and sleeves just the same. According to all I read sunscreen is suppose to be applied somewhat liberally which probably makes the staining worse. I really wish some of you MUAers out there would send me a note if you know of a sunscreen that doesn't stain. I hope I'm not the only one with this issue...help me!

I LOVE this sunscreen!! I have combo/acne prone skin and this doesn't break me out at all! Plus in some areas I'm really dry from the acne products I use on my face and this will moisturize it just enough that I don't need a separate moisturizer. I put it on top of my benzoyl peroxide in the morning and it blends right in! I can't even feel it on my face during the day! Without a doubt my hg sunscreen!!

My review is for the face only portion 70+ of this product.
So, when I purchase a sunscreen for the face, I assume that it will not make my eyes water and itch/sting. My neighbor today kept asking me, what's wrong with your eyes? Why are you itching your eyes like that? Friggin Annoying. I'm probably adding more wrinkles by all the rubbing you do by this product.
For a facial sunscreen, it is really really greasy. I'm sitting in my bedroom on a pretty mild California day and its greasy within 20 minutes of putting it on.
I also recently had one of the worst acne breakouts in the last 2 years. That is only good thing about being over 40, no horrible breakouts. It occured around the same time that I purchase this product and started to use it.
I read an article on this sunscreen about how it is the latest
and greatest in suncreen development, so I had high expectations on it.
I have a big bottle of the regular version which is nice and creamy, but I will only use it on my arms and the rest of my non-face body parts.
I cannot recommend the facial sunscreen part of it. I think it is too greasy for any texture of skin (oily or dry)

This sunscreen (the non-faces version) gave me burning, stinging, itching, and a general sensory reaction on my face. The first time I used it, it was intermittent. But the second time, it was immediate and intensified quickly. I do have rosacea, but I have been able to use many other sunscreens with the same ingreds w/ no problem.
Both myself and my husband also experienced stinging in our eyes if we perspired *at all*, even if we used a more water resistant sunscreen on our foreheads.
I didn't particularly find it even slightly water resistant either (not that it claimed to be). I remove it from my face, touching my face with wet hands caused my hands to be coated with its milky transfer, even before cleanser was introduced.
I did like the way the container sat on its cap. That made it easy to use and less exposed to oxygen so the antioxidants could avoid oxidizing.

Excellent body sunscreen. Doesn't break out my arms or back. Moisturizes. Lasts through activities. Too oily for my face, unfortunately. Especially in the summer. Definitely a repurchase.
Update: This is NOT waterproof. Wore it. Went swimming. Burned my shoulders (which had a thick layer). That said, still a great sunscreen - as long as I'm doing nothing more strenuous than golf.

IMO, this sunscreen is bogus. The ingredient list/formula is EXACTLY the same as the Coppertone Sport version and the Water Babies version (both also SPF 70). There is nothing new or unique about this product. Just a repackaging of an old formula. I own Coppertone Sport version, too, and there is NO difference between them when on my face/body. Also, this product is *identical* to the NutraShield Face version--don't waste your money buying a smaller tube!
The formula itself: Blends in easily with no white cast. Leaves face very shiny--maybe glossy?-- (at least if you try to apply anywhere near the required 1/4 tsp!). Stings my eyes with moderate sweating. Fine to use up for arms/body, although I do seem to get little pimples/bumps on my arms. I won't buy again. US $9.99 for 6 oz.
