    I never write reviews but I have to for this. I just ran into this brand at an organic store. I usually just buy the regular Coppertone, Hawaiian Tropic or Nivea sunblocks, the common brand available in my area. I live near the equator so yes, tropical weather year round. That's not why I bought it though. I decided to try this because one, it said VERY WATER RESISTANT on it, and two, it was a reasonable price compared to the common brands I use. I've gotten into wakeboarding the past couple of years, and for the first time I didn't mind being under the sun for so long. I didn't mind that I had a tan year round. Though I live in a tropical country, I'm a fair skinned person who hardly got any sun. But since taking up the sport, I had a nice tan that suit me almost year round. But I know the dangers of the sun, so I always tried to stay out from noon to 3pm, and I prayed to find a great sunblock that made me feel like its really protecting me. I knew this product worked because my last trip I was out for 10 days, going from one beach to another and then wakeboarding. About 5 days into the trip (using this sunblock from day 1) my sister looked at me and said I was so white. I was like "my new sunblock must really work then". I put it on just twice a day, being out in the sun almost all day. It is more difficult to put on then others, but I think thats what makes it special. Thats what makes it work. So, its a small price to pay to keep your skin extra protected. And you don't need to use a lot, since its so concentrated. If you squeeze the bottle like you would a normal Hawaiian Tropic Sun Junk bottle, watch out, you'll end up having a white paste on your skin, or better look for someone to spread the rest on. Lol. From now on, each time I wakeboard I'll probably have a bottle of this. My last few days of my trip though, I only put it on in the morning and just used regular sunblock to follow later during the day. Going island hoping for 10 days, I still wanted to get a tan to show off, and it worked. Imagine if I didn't have it though, I probably would have been burnt and black by the end of my trip, LOL. My suggestion, if you really care about your skin, if you can't go out under the sun because of worries about the effects of the sun on your skin, this is what you need to buy and use, to start enjoying a little sun now and then. =)

    It's mostly sweatproof and very waterproof. It's pretty tough to rub in, especially over arm/leg hair. You will probably end up looking a little paler than usual. It's so waterproof that some shower gels won't take it off after a workout--really gotta scrub. But, I have never gotten a sunburn while using it. I'd say that's the mark of good sunscreen. Also, it gets good marks from the Environmental Working Group for having few carcinogens, so you won't get cancer while trying to avoid cancer like when using the more traditional brands.

    Comments about Nature's Gate Aquablock Sunscreen, SPF 50, 4 fl oz:

    This is a great sunscreen. I applied to my face before going out to sea for 4 hours on a scuba trip. I was underwater for a total of 1.5 hours and did not reapply when coming out of the water. When the day was over I thought surely my face would be burned.... but I didn't have a trace of sun on my face. Only need a little bit, and it does take some time for it to rub in and absorb. Too heavy duty for daily use, but perfect for long days in the sun and/or water.

      Comments about Nature's Gate Aquablock Sunscreen, SPF 50, 4 fl oz:

      I was amazed at how effective this stuff was while sunning in Florida. How do I know? Well, unfortunately I forgot to put it on my back on got BURNED, however no other body parts that I had applied the lotion on did. So far, I really like all of the Nature's Gate products I've tried, and will continue to buy them. I also like the fact that the company is cruelty-free.

        Kids can be out in the sun and water all day without getting any tan. Adults that want a tan but not to get sunburn can use a low sunblock and switch later to this one when you have a little tan. It is the best I have used and great for people with allergies to smells. Stays on for hours even in water. Only have to apply twice for a hole day of water and sun on kids.

          Comments about Nature's Gate Aquablock Sunscreen, SPF 50, 4 fl oz:

          I am impressed with this. I am a sunscreen junkie, using whatever is new but I prefer the TD or ZO ones. I've used Nature's Gate products for years but they only went up to SPF 30. This one is pretty good. Goes on white, as the other reviewer says, but seems to blend in after a few minutes. Lightly greasy but not oily looking. Faint scent but not unbearable (I hate Neutrogena scents!). Overall, a winner.

          This product blends well, although it goes on white at first, and didn't feel sticky on my skin. Best of all, it kept me from getting any sun when I was swimming and on a boat for hours (and I'm really pale).
