I first purchased this sunscreen after having tried several of the top sunscreens recommended by the EWG yearly report of best non-toxic sunscreens. First I tried Badger brand and my young children then experienced their first sunburns. I then tried UV Naturals, and it worked, but I just didn't like the hefty price of $30 per bottle - we practically live at the beach in the summers and easily go through a bottle per week. Finally, I tried Alba and I will never use any other. It is the best. It goes on evenly without leaving white streaks, it works for hours in the blazing hot midday sun, and it smells divine. It glides on easily and quickly onto impatient 1 and 3 year old little girls. I even use it on our faces. This is simply the best and I urge you to give it a try.

We used this in southern Mexico and it worked well, until we got into the water. When in the water the sunscreen seemed to come off each time we touched our skin. The sunscreen also contains Oxybenzone, a product that has been proven to increase the production of free radicals in humans, kill coral reefs, and mess with hormones in marine animals.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen, SPF 45, Revitalizing Green Tea, 4 oz:

    I really like this sunscreen. It is very lightly scented, not overpowering, and easy to apply. Some of the natural sunscreens are very paste-like and it's a little work to rub them into the skin. This one absorbs easily and stays for a good while even when a little sweaty on hikes, etc. Really like it.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen, SPF 45, Revitalizing Green Tea, 4 oz:

    This worked relatively well. It says good up to 80 minutes in water/sweat; however, my niece and I burned when reapplying at the 80 minute mark. I'd highly recommend to begin drying off, and dry off, WELL, at 60 minutes and reapply sooner than 80 minutes. If any water gets in this, it significantly dilutes the effectiveness. It rubbed in mostly, not completely. Smell was fine, not bothersome and I am very picky and allergic to most perfumes. Overall, I'd recommend. Just ensure to take your time applying it and reapply every hour. I liked this and Babyganics the best. Alba goes on the easiest. The ingredients DO NOT list oxybenzone. I also tried Baby Pibu and Babo Botanicals, neither of which I'd recommend.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen, SPF 45, Revitalizing Green Tea, 4 oz:

    I purchased this product with the hopes of finding an SPF that did not smell overly like sunscreen and lacked harmful ingredients. This product has its own unique smell...a bit medicinal. It still smells better than SPF, however, and I'm happy by the ingredients list. It is heavy and a bit greasy but feels to be effective and is soft to the skin.

      Great sun protection but clogs pores on my face. Consistently runs into my eyes and stings. The smell is nice but can be overpowering. Also recently discovered it contains Oxybenzone. Won't be repurchasing.

        I purchased this sunscreen because it was paraben free and I have liked other products by Alba. We used it during a recent trip to Disney World when the temp was in the 80's and were very pleased with the level of protection it provided. I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family.

            The only thing which I dont like is its glossy.

              I spend a lot of time outside, and I have never burned using this sunscreen. I don't know how effective it is for sports or water sports because I never use it that way. I like it because it feels light on my skin. In fact, I can't even tell I'm wearing it. It also smells great.
