I surf regularly, and this is the ONLY sunblock I'll use on my face. The salt of the ocean and repeatedly wiping water from my face are two factors this sunblock endures like a champ! With other sunblocks, I always got burned even after 30mins in the water. With this one, I can suf for hours without reapplying, and I haven't gotten burned once. Best of all, it's got no fragrance, it rubs in completely and it doesn't make be break out or run into my eyes. This is hands-down the best sunblock for water sports! Thank you drugstore.com for carrying it year-round!!!

I was curious to find out exactly how much zinc oxide was in this product. I called Ocean Potion and they told me it contained 2% zinc oxide. I plugged all the active ingredients into Ciba"s Sunscreen Simulator and this one failed the Australian Sunscreen Standard. No other sunscreen that I plugged into the simulator failed but this one. It will keep you from burning because it has adequate UVB filters, but it fails in the UVA parameters. Being a lifeguard on the beach in the summer I take sun care seriously. I won't use this product.

Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Face Potion Clear Zinc Oxide, SPF 45, 1 fl oz:

I made an account just to say how great this product is! I used this on my face on my beach day in Virginia. It was a hot and sunny day but this sunscreen performed amazingly! I did reapply after being in the ocean after some time but that's no big deal to me.
I have VERY oily skin, extremely oily, and I break out easily from sunscreens even the ones that say non-comedogenic so I was skeptical. DON'T BE! It worked so well that my face didn't feel oily all day (when it usually does) and my complection even looked better after using it. Finally a sunscreen that didn't make me break out!
Everyone is different but I feel this is an amazing product. The only thing that's a slight downfall is that it doesn't smell that great but you get used to it and it's really not bad.

    Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Face Potion Clear Zinc Oxide, SPF 45, 1 fl oz:

    I'm a runner with oily skin, and I like this sunscreen because it has a nice, dry finish and is easy to apply. Many supposedly oily free sunscreens go on shiny. I have tried many, and this does not.

        Fantastic for sensitive skin. Most sunscreens sting my face. This one doesn't even after sweating or swimming. Stays on and really works. I haven't found any other sunscreen for the face that is as gentle and effective. Love it.

          This is the best sunblock for your face. It goes on clear, rubs in well, is not greasy at all and really protects your face from burning. I use it every day; my husband uses it in the summer, and even my teenage boys use it. We simply love it!

          Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Face Potion Clear Zinc Oxide, SPF 45, 1 fl oz:

          This is the best product I have ever found to prevent sunburn to the face. I live in Southern California and have skin cancer in the family. It stays on, lasts for a long time, doesn't sting, doesn't run into eyes and is great for sensitive skin. Above all, it works! This product has saved me and my kids from many a sunburn, and possibly future skin cancer. I highly recommend it to everyone I know.

            I have been using this product on a scar (neck area) for over a year. My surgeon stressed the importance of using sunscreen on my scar to prevent sunburn. I apply it every morning and also used it as a sunscreen when vacationing. My scar has never burned. Have re-purchased this product in the past and will continue to purchase.

              My nose skin is super sensitive to the sun in summer AND winter sun, as I have Lupus and need total protection without worry about clogging pores, I love Ocean Potion.You have to remember, whether the sun is shining or not, your skin is always exposed to UV/UVB rays.

                I use this product on myself and my children for daily protection from the Arizona sun. I like this cream because other products are too greasy and heavy for the face. This is just right, and I like having zinc as an ingredient in a facial sunblock.
