All SolBar products offer broad-spectrum protection with special appeal and benefits suited to an individual's type of skin and exposure. SolBar was developed in response to dermatologists' requests for therapeutic and cosmetic-quality products to protect patients with light or sun-damaged skin, people who live in sun-intensive areas, people who spend extended time in the sun, and those with photosensitization caused by medical conditions or medication.

Comments about SolBar ZINC Sun Protection Cream, SPF 38, Unscented, Transparent, 4 oz:
This is one of the best sunscreen I've ever tried. I have sensitive oily skin that most sunscreen always broke me out. I also hate the sunscreen scent and the stickiness when you sweat through the sunscreen.
First of all, this sunscreen does not have any scent. NONE AT ALL!
Second, it is a thick cream consistency and slightly oily upon applying, so I usually skip morning moisturizer and just apply this right after my toner and serum (think of moisturizer with SPF, this is SPF with moisturizer!) I've also tried mixing foundation to make morning routine little easier.
I do recommend using a sponge or cotton pad to apply the sunscreen as it is kind of hard to wash it off your hands (but hey that's what you want in a sunscreen right? Water resistant!!)
Bottom Line: I totally recommend this product if you are looking for a totally unscented sunscreen, but I'd hold off if you have very oily skin. I personally enjoy the dewy finish but make up does wear off rather quickly during the day.
My Beauty Routine Takes:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
