Since I have combo skin, I tend to be skimpy with facial application of sunscreen, which is why I opted for an SPF50 for everyday incidental exposure. This is also great for all over the body, and for long bursts of sun exposure, since the SPF is high enough to provide adequate protection. I love that this is fragrance free, and smells like close to nothing! So many SPF products use masking fragrance, and that just irritates me even more than the smell of the sunscreen! This is easy to apply, and absorbs/dries down nicely, without being drying or greasy. My powder foundation, actually looks better over the top of this! I got a large bottle for only $8, so I don't mind applying to my neck/chest daily also! I even apply this around my eyes, and it doesn't irritate/burn them. No breakouts, and a lot of sunscreens tend to break my face/chest out. Would repurchase!

This stuff is a lot less expensive than other self tanners, and I get excellent results. It has a tint that instantly makes your arms & legs look tan AND also lets you see where you have applied it so you don't miss a spot. And when it starts to wear off, it does so fairly gracefully. I don't mind the scent of this at all.I use medical/surgical non-latex gloves when I apply this self-tanner, and I just rub it in as if I didn't have gloves on. I thought that those silly tanning mitts absorbed half the product and wasted my money.

I borrowed this off a friend to soothe irritated skin and it was amazing. Instantly calming. I'll have to get my own. (they may have updated the packaging-- the one I tried was a clear bottle with a yellow cap and translucent teal gel)

I've been using this for 2 years as I have extremely sensitive skin with rosacea and I adore it - it's all I use as a moisturizer, and it works well even when out for hours and hours in the harshest Australian summer sun provided you apply a decent amount, if I miss a tiny spot on my back there are distinct hand/finger marks where the burn starts so it does an amazing job.I can't say how water resistant it is since I don't go swimming but it doesn't seem to sweat off.It's pretty greasy and shiny but eh, can't win on every count - it doesn't make my skin freak out and stops it burning so 5/5 HG status it is :)
