A good, light sunscreen that leaves face with a non-oily 'glow'. I like that it has zinc oxide (9%) in it too, which soothes my skin (although it can dry it too - this is why I use this in the...

Love the spf and coverage! This hasn't balled up on me or caused any breakouts. Only complaint is I wish it was a little cheaper or a bigger bottle for the price. Other than that I will keep buying.
