This sunscreen now comes in a pump bottle which is a lot more hygenic. You get 4oz or 120g for $37 which is 3xs the usual 30ml tube/bottle for a sunscreen for the face. It is very moisturizing and doesn't feel tacky on the skin. It has a thick gel-cream consistency (Organic Aloe Vera Gel is listed as the second ingredient after Purified Water) and for me, one pump is more than sufficient to cover my face and neck.
I have sensitive dry combination skin and this does not irritate my skin at all. In fact, it calms my usually flushed skin when I apply it on my face. It also does not leave a white cast which is terrific for a physical sunscreen. This has replaced my UV Essentiel sunscreen from Chanel (my HG) because when I perspire, it doesn't track white streaks down my face or neck (which happens with the Chanel one). Plus, it's way cheaper and has lots of good stuff like hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and grape seed extract. I also like that it is cruelty-free and safe even for children.

I've been using the UltraSolar 50 for the last few weeks as my daily facial sunscreen. Previously, I've been using the body block 30 on my face. Compared to the body block, the 50 is creamier and a feels a bit more moisturizing. If I apply the 50 right under my eyes, my eyes do tend to water for a minute or so. This seems to protect better than the body block as I have not picked up any color since starting this. It doesn't leave a white cast and hasn't caused my makeup to pill up. It is a bit more expensive than the body block at about $33 for a 4 oz. tub. Overall, I'm very pleased as this seems to be protecting well, is moisturizing and hasn't caused any reaction so far. (I have had issues with most chemical sunscreens.)

UPDATE: I had to stop using this once it was reformulated to the pump. I liked the idea of the pump but the texture of the sunscreen was more grainy than before and would tend to ball up.
