This sunscreen is my current favorite, and is one of the first chemical sunscreen I've used. It's similar to the Aveeno continuous protection SPF30 in texture, but absorbs a lot better and stings less on the eyes. It is very moisturizing, and makes my dry skin stay soft all day.
This sunscreen has the same formula as the face cream, so is much better in value. It's not much more expensive than drugstore sunscreens!

I agree this cream is thick, but most sunscreens are. There doesn't seem to be any way around that. This one does not leave a greasy residue and is 100% fragrance free, or nearly. I like it, but I'm not sure if it's worth what I paid for it. I picked up a sunscreen for a fraction of the cost (admittedly a smaller quantity) for my kids to take to the beach. I've just compared the two on the backs of my hands. Can't detect any difference, and both claim to offer UVA and UVB protection. The Clinique uses 'SolarSmart' technology (ie anti-oxidants, according to Paula Begoun) so perhaps it is better, but I'm still doubtful that it is worth what I paid. Paula also says this body cream is the same as the the equivalent SPF30 face cream from Clinique, you just get more for your money. Much more actually, now I compare them. Handy to know!

I'm quite impressed with this product...even if I can't seem to find the ingredient list anywhere (grrr...isn't it the law to disclose ingredients? Only the actives are listed). Anyway, I assume the non-active ingredients are the same or very similar to the SPF 50 Body Cream (check pville review).
Anyway, the texture is very, very thick...which is why it doesn't get a 5 from me, but other than that, I love it. It seems to mattify, sinks in very quickly, doesn't sting, doesn't get greasy late in the day, and leaves no whitecast...everything I wanted in a sunscreen. I have oily-ish skin, but it doesn't seem to make it worse...which surprised me. I guess I should also say that I use this on my face, not my body (still covered until summer).
All in all, a good product, you get a lot for you money, and a very elegant formula. Highly recommended.
Update - I still highly recommend this product, but the uber-thick texture is a turn off, especially when Neutrogena offers competitive products with nicer textures and lower prices. Great for someone with dry skin I imagine, and great for its intended purpose - the body.
