Wow, not only is this the best NATURAL sunscreen I have ever tried, this is THE BEST sunscreen I have tried! The smell is amazing, it doesn't have that recognizable sunscreen smell that many others have. It just smells like yummy lotion! And on top of that, IT WORKS! I bought the 15spf and the 30spf (which also smells super yummy) for our recent trip to sunny Florida. It protected both me and my husband from sun burn, and we were in the sun for several says in a row. I even used the 15 on my face, and it didn't feel super greasy like alot of sunscreens can, and I have oily skin. I will definitely buy again and recommend this stuff highly!

I was excited to try this sunscreen after I read some of the reviews which stated that it was non greasy and rubbed in well. Those attributes as well as the fact that it's 100% vegetarian and not tested on animals sealed the deal and I placed my order. When I got it I washed my face using my face soap that i use everyday and then applied this to my face. The first thing I noticed is the smell, it's smells like plastic or rubber, like a blow up raft you just opened. The second issue I ran into was how greasy and shiny it made my face look, yuck! About 15 minutes after applying my face began to burn, it felt like it was on fire. When I went to wash it off my face was a bright pinkish/red tone. I washed it off immediately, after I washed it off the burning began to subside, but it still hurt and my face was sensitive for the next couple of days. I gave this product to my daughter who uses it and it works well for her, she rides horses and wore it all day without any running, or sweating off. I would advise everyone to try a small test area on your face before applying it all over the first time. I may or may not reorder for my daughter, but as for me I'm never trying the Alba brand again.

    We had to buy biodegradable sunscreen for Mexico so we got this. It lasted long and it's not greasy like other sunscreens. It smells good too.

      So happy to have found this sunscreen as I was looking for a natural brand for my kids. This one is less expensive than most of the natural brands and I love the smell!

        Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen, SPF 30, Soothing Aloe Vera, 4 oz:

        This is my new favorite sunscreen. I have very fair skin and burn if I'm in the sun unprotected for more than 10 minutes. No. Joke.

        I have tried countless brands of sunscreen over the years; big brands, natural, and specialty brands, and Alba is turning out to be my favorite (for more than just sunscreen too). This sunscreen rocks. It is easily applied and blends in quickly and effortlessly. It is not greasy at all. Once applied, it feels like you have nothing on at all. I despise feeling like you're coated in grease (which is what most other sunscreens feel like).

        The other major selling point is that Alba does not use nano-technology in their sunscreen, which is a big thumbs up for me. Alba, and this sunscreen, kick some major butt.

          I purchased this thinking I was getting the Hawaiian Green Tea 30 SPF because I looooove that one. I was disappointed when it arrived because I hadn't paid attention to what I was ordering but after using it I have to say, it smells really good and I like it. I will order it again in the future if I can't find the Green Tea version.

          I have very sensitive skin and can only use Vanicream as a moisturizer. I mix this with the Vanicream in my palm and apply after my shower for daily UV protection for body and face. I never had any reaction to the Green Tea version and haven't had any reaction to this after using it for a week.

          Having said all that, I still prefer the Green Tea sunscreen because of the scent and consistency/texture.
