Living in Los Angeles, I use sunscreen religiously when doing outdoor sports (running, hiking). To date, all the products I've used have left a gross white film behind, particularly (sorry for TMI) when I start sweating. This lotion smells great and, instead of making looking like I'm covered in a thin layer of flour, actually provides a little bit of sheen like a moisterizing oil. I love it.

I have sensitive skin, so I bought this one and the Sensitive Skin one (haven't tried that one yet).

When I tried this particular one, my skin felt warm wherever I'd applied it, uncomfortably so. I wanted to give it a fair shake, so I tried it a second time, but had the same reaction. (Last time I had that reaction to a product, I ended up with a red rash that lasted for weeks, so I quickly washed this stuff off).

I can't speak to the effectiveness of the sun protection, because I washed it off after a few minutes :0( However, this product gets GREAT reviews so I'd still recommend it to a friend, just not a friend that has sensitive skin like me!

      I have had skin cancer, live in southern LA and have a pool but I wasn't using it because my eyes hurt from sunscreen burning them. I tried everything, including baby sunscreen but nothing absorbed enough not to run or drip when it got wet. This absorbs INTO the skin so it doesn't get in your eyes-I'm so happy to have found it.

            I discovered this product years ago on a trip to Hawaii where you need a reliable sunblock. It's hard to find, so ordering in quantity from drugstore.com is perfect. The new version has a dry finish (not as greasy as it used to be) and it protects my skin beautifully in the California desert where I play tennis and golf regularly. Out here you need good protection and this is it. Light citrus scent is very pleasant.

                      Ocean Potion doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy and soaks into the skin nicely. I feel it offers really good sun protection. It smells great!

                              I bought this sunscreen specifically because the product description states that it is oxybenzone free, however it is not!! Apparently the manufacturer has reformulated the product and the new formula does contain oxybenzone. It also contains retinyl palmitate and olive oil, which are not listed on the ingredients on drugstore.com. If you are looking for a safe sunscreen without oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate, this is not it. Also, the orange creamsicle fragrance smells good for about 5 minutes but then changes to an offensive smell I can't quite describe...

                                I LOVE Ocean Potion! I usually hate the smell of sunscreen (aka cocoa butter), but this stuff smells like orange creamsicles.

                                  Now, I would give this product a 5/5 if it weren't for the smell. It sort of smells like a fruity cereal, and since I have a sensitive nose, it's kind of irritating. But, it's a really good product, so don't let my review deter you from buying this, since many people actually do like the smell.

                                  So try it out, it's cheap and effective, so why not? But no, I would not buy this again. I will look for a scent-less sunscreen next time.
