Rating and Review


This sunscreen is ok. It is quite fluid, but when it is applied it feels greasy and thick. So it may not be suitable for the face. I have only tried it on my body, and it feels thick. Once applied to body, it takes some time to dry down/absorb into the skin. It seems to do the job as a sunscreen for the body, or at least I hope it is. I am not sure which version I got- before or after the reformulation. I am sure there are better options available.
