I've gone through a couple of bottles of this stuff at various SPF levels. SPF 45 offers great protection without being overly heavy. I would repurchase if it wasn't a chemical sunscreen. Currently, I'm trying Eucerin's SPF 30 for Sensitive Skin, a physical sunscreen which I'm pretty happy with.

Pros: Moisturizing and dries fairly quickly. Goes well under makeup. Sheer. Effective. I love the squeeze bottle packaging and the price is right.

Cons: Two things prompted me to get a physical sunblock. One was all the stuff about chemical sunscreens being bad for you and not lasting as long besides. The other was that this would sting badly when I reapplied after working out and showering.
