I just used this on a week-long trip to the beach where I spent 30+ hours sunbathing, and came away with a very nice tan, and, best of all, no sunburn (of course I already had an idea of how long I could spend in the sun with no protection and not burn, YMMV). I would say the SPF rating of this product is spot on. The key, I think, is reapplying according to the manufacturer's instructions (every 80 minutes), which, at this price, doesn't make me see dollar signs every time I slather it on my body, or tempt me to apply less, or apply it less often.

The non-greasy formula is as advertised. A few minutes after putting it on, I barely knew it was there. Very nice.

As far as the scent, which some reviewers found off-putting, I like it. It's very light, mildly fruity with a hint of coconut. The scent's fairly subtle though. I only really smelled it much when I was putting the sunscreen on, and it dissipated very rapidly. In other words, you're not going to walk around smelling like a pina colada all day.

One last thing: as far as the recommendation to avoid getting it on fabric, I wiped my hands off on my [white] t-shirt after using it, and didn't have any issues with staining. Beware with the higher SPFs however.

I would definitely recommend this product, and all NO-AD products, and will be buying it again the next time I need sunscreen.

this product has changed from a great one to one with a fragrance and a different formula -- ugh to the smell which gave me an allergy attack -- worst of all this fragrance was not noted in the on-line description -- so i got a surprise when i opened the bottle -- i used last years model all the time -- too bad the company couldn't just let a good thing be -- i ordered 4 bottles and had to throw it all out -- what a waste of money

              Love this sunscreen! Soaks right in and smells wonderful! The only bad thing about it is that it has little to no UVA protection. I have a huge handbag and I carry this bottle (yes the whole bottle) around with me to apply and reapply to my neck hands and arms. Perfect for incidental exposure.

                    i have used NO-AD products for two summers now, and haven't had one sunburn. i have used spf30 spf15 and spf8. i like the spf8 best, because i like to tan, but the top of my head burns easily, so i need the protection of the higher spf. the price is great too...compared to the overpriced big name brands. the only downside to this product, is that is hard to find locally....so i order two or three bottles at a time from drugstore.com.......fast delivery, and a great place to do business
