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.

      been using for years as we boat a lot and are out alot in the sun. great to put on face, doesn't irritate eyes or lips -- we just wipe it all over our faces and are good to go.

        Love using this product everyday, under my make-up, for a workout outdoors, or anytime. I can't use very many sunscreens on my face without it affecting my skin...but this one definitely agrees with me. And I've been using it for more than 2 years. I just can't find it in a store all the time...so I order it online.

          I have VERY sensitive, acne prone skin and I have bought this at least 3 times. I especially love wearing it on my face when I run. It rubs on clear, doesn't burn, sting, smell, or irritate. Best of all, when I am covered in sweat, it doesn't drip into my eyes. If it does, I never feel it. I absolutley love this sunblock for my face. Price has been no object when it comes to sunblock for me. Hard to believe one that is so inexpensive was the winner.

              Very misleading product name. I picked it up thinking it was a pure zinc oxide cream like I used to buy years ago. I am allergic to all chemical sunscreens, and this blistered my face within the hour. I should have read the active ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Octocrylene (2%), Zinc Oxide (7%), Oxybenzone 5%

                  I don't have any complaints. I use it when I plan to go out exercising and the sun is out and also for my children, grandchildren when they plan to play outside when the sun is out.

                    I use Face Suncare on a daily basis and find it easy to rub in. The only drawback is I use it on my arms also and a jar does not last very long.

                      I didn't think much of this sunscreen until I floated the river yesterday for 5 hours in the hot Texas sun. I put it only on my face and sprayed on Neutrogena beach defense sunscreen on the rest of my body. Today I have sunburn all over my body, and my face is the only part of my body that looks normal! I love the formula, it absorbs quickly into the skin, and most importantly, it stayed on without me having to reapply. Highly recommend!

                      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.

                        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.
