I'm looking for a reasonably priced, reasonably effective, daily/incidental use sunscreen with an ingredient list my skin could get along with. This looked promising - virtually no silicones, no stearates, passable (if not stellar) stable UVA protection. There's even a peptide thrown in for good measure!

This comes out of the tube as a thin lotion. It applies easily, and there's no white cast at all. It's light - not heavy or greasy or sticky - and it dries down within a few minutes. Once it's set, I can't even feel it on my face. Unlike the other Ocean Potion SS I've used, this one has no scent to it.

The finish is fairly matte - there's no shine to this at all. There's no oil control either, so oily girls might want to keep looking. I don't know if I'd call it moisturizing, but I do know that my combination skin doesn't need moisturizer with it. It doesn't dry my skin as the day goes along, either.

It claims to be water resistant, but I haven't put that to any rigorous test - I want this for daily wear, not industrial usage. Still, it is moderately sweat resistant. I use cleansing oil all the time, and that certainly gets this off. It might come off with a regular cleanser - I just don't know.

It's not clogging me, it's not breaking me out, and it's not leaving me a greaseball at any point. I wish the UVA protection was better, but it's better than nothing, and it's stable. I've found my every-day SS!

I use Ocean Potion sunscreens daily. I like the lightweight feel, quick absorption, and the light sent that reminds me of bubblegum. So naturally, when I saw the facial moisturizer with SPF, I bought it. I am a redhead with extremely fair skin that can be sensitive to some products. I developed an awful rash all over my face from this product. I did not realize when I bought it that it was an anti-aging product. Had I actually read, I would not have made the purchase, as my skin is very sensitive to this type of product. So I am giving this product a 2 star rating only as a warning to others with sensitive or semi-sensitive skin to read all the ingredients before buying. If you have no problems, this product really will be great for you.

        I really like Ocean Potion products and I can't find it here in Michigan. The product is very light weight and works great! Other sunscreens on my face tend to get in my eyes if it's hot outside. Ocean Potion doesn't do that.

          Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Protect & Renew Face Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 35, 3 fl oz:

          I use this product daily, due to kidney transplant medication that raises my risk of skin cancer by 36%. I have used a 15 spf store brand that I thought was good until I found out about oxybenzone. I tried Clear Zinc, which I thought I liked, but it was hard to rub in and made me look pale (temporarily.) I used regular sunscreen on my face, which was ok, but seemed "heavy."

          I discovered Ocean Potion last summer and loved it. I was looking to buy more Ocean Potion when I found this product by them. I purchased it and I love it so much I will continue buying it until they stop manufacturing it, which I hope they never do.

          Ocean Potion Protect & Renew Face glides on smoothly, quickly, and easily and feels very light. I don't even need a mirror to apply it, plus it is right around the spf that I prefer. I was told spf 15 is good for the face, but why would my face need less protection than my arms? This product has no scent, which is fine. Fragrance is not beneficial in sunscreen, anyway.

              I'm a long-time Ocean Potion user, and I slather myself with OP SPF 30 or 50 if I'm going to be out in the sun for an extended period. But for my morning routine, I use this--I tend to dash out and run errands in the morning. It absorbs much more quickly than the regular OP sunscreens, and it feels a bit moisturizing. I also like the fact that it comes in a 3 oz tube so that I can just stick it in my 3-1-1 airplane bag instead of having to transfer it to another container.

                  This is so light it doesn't feel like it's blocking every pore on my face. Putting sunscreen on your face can be scary...especially when your sunblock is thick and greasy.

                  This isn't tested on animals which is great. If only it didn't use chemicals to block the sun, it would be perfect.

                    This facial suncreen absorbs quickly into the skin and works effectively. I like that it is SPF 35. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is that although the label indicates that it is Fragrance Free, it does smell like sunscreen to me. Not a bad scent, but a scent nonetheless.

                      Have used Ocean Potion Sunscreen product in the past but first time for this product. Wanted something fragrance free without Oxybenzone, which is hard to find in these type products. This formula says it is for the FACE, but my husband and I used all over while in Florida the end of February. Wish this new Protect & Renew formula had the SAME ingredients in their body formula, but it doesn't. Since we use the FACE formula for the body as well, it is rather expensive, as the tube is only 3 ounces.
