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.

    Best product for protection! Best product I've used for not running into my eyes. Rubs in better than most Zinc oxide formulas. Still can be seen for some time but well worth it.

      I use it for running, and I use it for gardening. Great for oily and darker skins, since it is transparent after being rubbed in, and a little goes a long way.

        I use this product every day. I have tried numerous facial sunscreens and this is thhe ONLY ONE that does not burn the eyes. It applies easily and has the right amount of moisturing properties for me.

          This is my favorite face sunscreen for everyday use. I use it every day regardless of the weather after applying moisturizing and under foundation. It rubs in easily and is great for ears and neck too. Love this stuff!

            I put it on my face before swimming. It's not the same thick white zinc oxide I refused to use as a teenager. This is more like lotion and keeps the sun off my face completely. Love it!

              This stuff is great...kids love to stay in the water and their noses always suffer...but this stuff is great..a little dab and their noses stay protected. I love it on my whole face - goes on white - but rubs in clear. Great little pot that it comes in!

                I bought this for my daughter to use on her trip to Florida. She tans easily and thinks she doesn't need sunscreen. She quickly discovered that the sun in FL is a bit more intense than it is in WI & loved this product.

                  It goes on easily, absorbs quickly and does not leave the skin greasy or as if a film is on it like so many sunscreen products.

                    I love this stuff!!! I have been looking for a facial sunscreen that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. With Ocean Potion there are no break outs and no blackheads. The best part is this stuff immediately soaks into your skin and doesn't leave a shiny, slick look on your face. I was concerned that the zinc oxide would leave a white ghostly color to my face, but was pleasantly surprised that this is absolutely not the case. I have finally found a product that I can use every day.

                      The only downside is the lack of antioxidants. But I use it for running less than 1 hour and 15 minutes, which is a shorter time than is required for antioxidants, which are needed after 2 hours.
