I was going to buy the Coppertone Oil Free Faces Sunblock in SPF 30, but then I saw this sunblock right next to it and figured I should get this instead, since it has SPF 50. They were both the same price, but this Coppertone (Sensitive Skin) had less product than the Coppertone Oil Free Faces SPF 30. Anyway I got home and put the sunblock on my face and was very surprised at how white my face was (during the winter my skin is pretty light, and this sunblock made my face a whole shade paler). I put on my tinted moisturizer to add some color, but that didn't help much. I left it on for about an hour thinking it would sink in, but when I checked again the whiteness/paleness was still there. Also while I was putting it on, the sunblock had a very thick consistency and was hard to spread out and apply on my face. I had to rub it in a lot to get it to "blend" in. The only good thing is that my face did not get oily (I ended up wearing the sunblock for 4 hours) and my face did not break out.
I think that if you have fair, oily, and sensitive skin, this product will fit you well.
On the other hand, I will be returning this and trying the Coppertone Oil Free Faces Sunblock SPF 30 instead since it has better reviews.

I join the others who "love love love" this sunscreen. High SPF and it does not break me out nor leave me too dry or oily. It is easy to find at drugstores and the price is right. I know it is scarey at first as it does go on with a heavy white cast but for fair skin, this sinks in within a couple of minutes. For darker skin, I can imagine adding a tinted moisturizer to it would help though it may not work for those who are not pale. It does not sting or irritate my sensitive skin nor break me out and it is a solid sunscreen. I keep trying more expensive facial sunscreens but they are not as good all around. I will just relax about it and let it sink in that I found something that works all around for my face...ah, finally!!!

I wanted to try this as a non-avobenzone/oxybenzone containing sunscreen because of its good rating on the EWG and because it contains zinc oxide. There is unfortunately evidence now that zinc oxide poses a possible skin cancer risk so I don't know what to do http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/05/120507131951.htm

I have been using Neutrogena dry-touch and super advanced sunscreens but after researching their ingredients and finding out that the oxybenzone in them actually may cause damage to the skin, I decided to switch to a safer product. I was searching everywhere for affordable, safe sunscreen that contained zinc oxide and I was surprised to find such sunscreen at a drugstore! This product is AWESOME because it contains a high amount of zinc oxide while lacking oxybenzone. I have yet to find another sunscreen at such a low price with these two qualities.
The product does go on really white initially and it scared me on my first application. But if you let it sit for about 2 minutes, the whiteness disappears. The only problem I have with this sunscreen is that it it a bit greasy and I have to blot before I apply make up but really, it's no big deal. I am just so happy to have found such a great sunscreen at such a low price and I love that it is easy to find at different stores. =)

I would not use on my face. Not because it's oily or heavy but after using japanese SS, (I currenly use sofina perfect white protect) I won't use anything but on my face. I use this on my neck, chest, arms, etc. It leaves a light white cast, the same as my sofina but much more moisterizing, leaves also a bit of a sheen. I did try on my face, just to see what it felt like and it is not heavy or filmy at all. It didn't make my face oily, but it also didn't mattify it like my japanese SS does. It felt as if I had nothing on my face, but there was a 'moisterizing sheen' to it. I would use on my face maybe only at the beach swimming where it doesn't really matter what I look like because no one looks good at the beach.
It does work great on my neck, chest and arms so I can save my expensive japanese SS for my face.

Ughh I cant stand this sunscreen! I needed a sunscreen for everyday sun exposure and this was the only one I could find at Walmart aimed for sensitive skin. It does not leave a white cast like other sunscreens tend too but upon the first use this broke me out. I tried this again and I still suffered from another breakout.Compared to the price you pay for such a little tube its just not worth it. This might work for others but my skin is ultra sensitive and it takes forever for my blemishes to go away.

I got this based on recommendations from the skincare board and it has worked well for me. My skin is very oily and acne and clog prone, but not particularly sensitive. This goes on very thick and white at first. You have to work it in. It's definitely not a slap on and go product. Once it's absorbed it is invisible and it works well under my makeup. I don't notice any white cast but I am pretty fair. I can use this all around my eyes (which are sensitive) with no irritation whatsoever. It's reasonably priced and readily available and has a good high percentage of zinc so I feel pretty protected. This has not broken me out or clogged my pores which is my biggest concern with any product. The only thing that keeps me from rating this five lippies is that it is a bit greasy even after giving it time to absorb, enough that I feel the need to blot before applying makeup. Once I do that it's fine and I don't think I get oilier throughout the day because of this product. Overall, it's probably as close to perfect as I'll get within my price range and since I got it I've used sunscreen daily, which I've never been able to say before. I would repurchase and recommend to others.

Pros -- I like the high protection of this and the fact that it has zinc oxide.
Cons -- extremely thick and hard to spread, definitely not cosmetically elegant IMO. Even when I put foundation over it, it looked mask-like and unnatural. Also, I noticed after wearing this a few days my skin seemed rougher and more clogged.
Overall, this has great protection for a d/s ss, but I'll only be using it for the beach or being outdoors when I don't really mind how I look.

This is my going to the beach/swimming/lounging outside/dog-walking sunscreen. It is not my regular daily sunscreen on account of the sickly pallor it leaves behind. The protection seems good -- I don't burn with it on, but then again I burn very rarely, in general -- doesn't clog my pores, smell is relatively inoffensive (fruity sunscreen-y smell), it's cheap, readily available, and it feels minimally repulsive on my skin. Would repurchase.

I originally picked this product because I have combination oily-dry skin that's prone to break outs and I was hoping to find a relatively inexpensive sunscreen that wouldn't break me out. While this product didn't break me out, it did leave a white cast all over my face. My husband noticed it immediately and told me to rub it in more. My face still had a slight whitish tinge to it. I had to dust powder over it to make the sunscreen look like it was part of my natural color (I have an olive complexion). It's also too dry for me so I had to put extra moisturizer over it. I don't think that this was the right sunscreen for me and won't be repurchasing it.

Horrible. Like smearing white paint on your face. If you can manage to get it in after 30 minutes, you're still stuck with a white cast. Going in the trash.

This is way way WAY too thick for me. I have to rub it in an insane amount to get the white cast to blend in with my skin. And I have fair skin mind you. Yes it works and no it does not irritate my skin, but I can't deal with such a thick white cast especially when I often apply sunscreen on the go. I need something that absorbs better.

I've only been wearing this on the weekends but so far I really like it. Mind you...this does go on pretty thick and white which scared me at first but after a while it disappears and I think it makes my skin look really good and dewy....but not greasy. It's almost like it's light reflecting or something. Anyway, no breakouts, no stinging eyes and no balling up...no matter how much I rub it in. I'm not sure how this would do for a full work day...my skin always looks blah after a full day of work no matter what I use...maybe stress or office air....but I'll definitely keep this for my summer sunblock.
*NOTE* This takes a good 15 minutes to really sink in. At first it does feel kind of think and heavy but after it sinks in I really feel like I have nothing on.

For the last couple of months, I've been getting in the habit of wearing sunscreen on my face every day. I wanted something waterproof because normal sunscreen seems to wear off quickly, even when I'm just going to work and back home again. I tried the new Neutrogena liquid and my skin got red and flaky. I tried their Sport face sunscreen - same result. So I went with my old standby, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer. Again, my skin got irritated and dry. I was ready to spend alot and give up on drugstore brands, but thought I'd give Coppertone a try. It works great and the whiteness goes away if you blend enough. EDIT: At first, this worked fine. But then continued, daily use made my skin feel like sandpaper. Not flaky anymore but definitely irritated. I can still use it occasionally but dropped my rating slightly to reflect the fact that it's not working for my sensitive skin (I ended up tried Shiseido instead).

While applying, this sunscreen feels thick, greasy and has a white cast. After 5-10 minutes, it looks good and has very little shine. It takes some effort to work in - I substracted a lippie for that. Another lippie because I can't get a full 1/4 teaspoon on and looking good. My face tolerates it with no breakouts as long as I remove it completely at the end of the day, and it doesn't sting my eyes. Added plus: it's a readily available drugstore sunscreen, and the price is reasonable.

I really wanted to like this but it just wasn't right for me. I am aways looking for a good physical sunscreen for sensitive skin. It left a very white cast on my fair skin even after vigorous blending. It also looked very shiny to me. I would give this a try only because it is so darn cheap, and if it works for you it will really be a great find!

First, remember that more doctors are saying the best UVA/UVB blockers are physical blocks( zinc oxide and titanium dioxide), and a mixture of chemical sunblocks. However, most sunscreens out there only have one or the other. This one has BOTH. It's offers superior protection. Yes, it's whitish on the skin. But if you rub it in good, and you are caucasian, it's really not bad. I highly recommend this sunscreen

I have bought almost 2 dozen different types of sunscreen. High end and drugstore quality. Domestic brands and the stuff you can only find in Asia. This is the best physical sunblock I have used considering price, function, feel, and adaptability. I have a golden-olive light-medium skin tone (carribean hispanic descent) so I do have issues with physical sunscreens leaving me white. When I blend this on it takes vigorous blending and spreading to diminish the kabuki white look. But it DOES NOT pill considering all the blending I do. Afterwards, it does leave a slight white cast on my skin. I fix that using Armani fluid sheer in #3 or #10 or #14 blended all over my face. Sometimes, I will use a 2nd application and some blush. BAM! The white pasty look is GONE. However, while it feels matte (and stays matte for a long time) it does leave a shiny/waxy look on skin. I fix that by blotting with tissue paper and/or lightly dusting powder. The point is that my skin looks thick, glowly and juicy. Yup. On top of that, unlike other sunscreens I have NOT gotten darker in the sun and I tan extremely easily and quickly a light shade of copper brown. My facial skin has not darkened. I am also extremely acne prone and this has not caused acne. I normally have super oily skin but it is currently on serious retinoids so it veers from kind of oily and to dry. This sunscreen used over my avene or decleor moisturizer and decleor facial oil does not pill. Frankly my skin looks fantastic and I get the certainty that it hasnt been melted off my face or broken down like other sunscreens that I suspects melts under the sun and my facial skin oil. Buying multiple tubes. Did I forget to mention its dirt cheap compared to seriously more expensive sunscreens I have used?
But this is not a grab and go sunscreen - you need a mirror and extra products to make it work especially if you are not paper colored. -1 for that. When I dont have the time I avoid this. But when I do its all about this creme. It also doesnt sting my now sensitized skin the way the chemical sunscreens do. But I caution anyone who tbinks same ingredients equals same product. Products made for facial skin are usually formulated differently than those for bodies plus it may contain a different concentration of the same ingredients.

I can't seem to find a sunscreen for my face that I absolutely love but I am hard to please, but this one comes close. The reviews below pretty much cover it all but I just wanted to say that this formula is NEARLY identifical (at least from what I see) to the coppertone pure and simple baby sunscreen which is significantly cheaper than this one. Can anyone verify that they are pretty much the same with the same results? Why pay more for a little tube in that case right?

I just started using this product and am so happy I found it! I have tried many suncreens for my face and this is the first one that does not sting around my eyes and stays put when I run. Also, it does not have fragrance and smells fine.
