The good: Smells nice, and not too strong unlike some of their products like Island Sport. My nose is sensitive to strong fragrance. Certainly feels moisturizing on the skin. I barely started using sunscreen everyday and never wore any kind of lotion on my body before and it made my hands feel soft and quite nice. My skin wasn't horrible before, though. It just felt like boring skin; neither soft nor rough. More like a true lotion than a pure sunscreen. You get a lot for your money. 8 whole ounces for like 6 or 7 bucks! Usually daily use sunscreens are like 10 dollars and up for 3-5 ounces! The bad: The finish is on the shiny side, but I wouldn't say it's greasy. It has shea butter and mango butter, which are good but contain Vitamin A in them. Vitamin A or any type of retinol or retinyl palmitate ingredients are best left at night because they are phototoxic (makes your skin more sensitive to the sun). This makes me really sad because I really loved it for daily use. All the other sunscreens smell or feel to gross for daily use. I have heard that it might stain certain clothing. Might be the silk ribbons. Also fragrance is not good for the skin either (I believe it is irritating to the skin) but it is at the very bottom of the list. If it wasn't for the vitamin A in it, I would compromise and still use this on my body.
