Although I wish I could state that this is my HG sunscreen, this one has many components that make it close to HG status. It is a white, cosmetically elegant cream/emulsion that feels nice to...

This does a good job of protecting me from the sun. I've tested it in hot sunny weather on the beach. However, it's not my favorite sunscreen of all time. PROS: 1) The formula is 9% zinc...
