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.

NOT "natural"; greasy (use on body)

PERSONAL OPINION: To call this product "natural" is a heinous misnomer; if you put green tea extract in Cool Whip, would Cool Whip suddenly become natural? You can't call something loaded in synthetic compounds, "natural", just because it contains a handful of plant extracts. The SPF chemicals include a hormone disrupter and something that breaks down into free radicals when exposed to sunlight. I absolutely hate when brands stick on the non-regulated label "natural"; it's just a sales ploy that makes people think they're buying something better than they actually are.

FORMULA: opaque white; if not properly rubbed in, can get streaky.

PROS: moisturizing (other sunscreens can feel chalky, but this one feels like it actually moisturizes your skin)

CONS: super greasy (not ideal for facial use), not "natural"

BEST USES: for BODY, not face; it is far too greasy to ever be used on the face. Unless you like having a greasy face.

    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.

            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.

            I try to buy clean, chemical free products. The fragrance is not chemical free. It is also heavy and makes my skin feel like it is sufficating.

                  I really love this sunscreen. Its light and i can even use it on my face. Other sunscreens were either to thick, took forever to rub into skin. Would sting my eyes and if i wanted to use just a little on my face would break me out.. This works perfectly for me.
