Total crap! I'd heard great things about the brand through a respected dermatologist, so I thought I'd give it a try. I live in south Florida so for me, sunscreen has to go the extra mile every time. I slathered this product on before taking a walk, and when I got back home my skin was bright red..... and I wasn't sweating! I agree with the other reviews in that they should …Read more

1. It burned my face, I turned instantly red.
2. It's not the "very water resistant" as it claims, only took one dab with wet tissue to take it off.
3. Shady business not showing % on active ingrediants.

This is the best sunscreen for my skin! I have dry, sensitive, fair skin. I use AHA and BHA and have had IPL treatments. This is the ONLY sunscreen I've found that doesn't irritate my skin!

I really, really wanted to like this product. It's fragrance free, has a high SPF, it's water resistant, non irritating, not thick and greasy, and leaves your skin comfortable. All of that is the makings of an HG product.


But what's going on with the company not specifying the percentages of actives??? I mean, who lists the minerals and chemicals in a sunscreen …

FINALLY I have found a sunscreen that doesn't irritate my skin, clog my pores, smell, turn me white, make me greasy, or dry me out. This is a bare-bones product, just my style. This doesn't try to be a skin treatment with sunscreen - those have either been too protectant (smothering my skin) or too moisturizing (too rich / greasy), but it does sooth, smooth, moisturize, and protect just …Read more

This is good stuff; dries matte, clear, and freegrance-free. Thanks for all the good reviews and concerns about UVA protection. If you want more zinc oxide, Pacific Sun's Surf Ski Cote w/Zinc Oxide SPF 45+ has 6.86% instead of 1% in this Ocean Potion's face lotion. Pacific Sun is Long's brand and also dries clear but is slightly greasier. I prefer zinc oxide to avobenzone and …Read more

Just to be clear - this is the product I've been using. I feel like some of us may be talking about different things.

I still contend that it's good stuff, and I burn really easily. I've never burned with this on. And it keeps my sun-triggered rosacea totally in check. Love it.

I am not favorably impressed by this sunscreen and will not wear it. It contains only 1% zinc oxide, far too low to provide adequate UVA protection. This sunscreen may contain enough protection to prevent obvious burning from UVB rays for some people, if it doesn't provide adequate UVA protection, why use it?

I buy this in bulk. I discovered it on my honeymoon in Hawaii (it was advertised as a "Local Surfer's Favorite") and it's been a miracle for me. I have very sensitive, rosacea-prone skin - and I haven't gotten a sunburn or sun-triggered rosacea flare since I started using it. It has no scent (good for a face product) and provides great everyday protection. I showed my …Read more
