This sun block works great in sunny Hawaii. However, it was a little bit difficult to wash off. On the other hand, this would not deter me from buying it again as it had excellent coverage from hot sun and was rated "2" on the EWG ratings site.
It's not like plaster. For the first 10 minutes it stays on heavy white but then you can rub it in so it's not visible. Does not smell very bad..maybe for a minute like bug spray but that's it. Rated 2/10 on EWG which is good for low risk level and rated good/good for UVA and UVB protection. Good quality for the price compared to other mineral sunscreen. I only wish it came in a bigger bottle as a sunscreen moisturizer type (the one alba already has is not rated well)
It is perfect for nature but not sure for me

I still can't understand, how I feel greasy; dry & hard in the same time. It should be SPF 50+++ with this texture. Where is the Emollient? It was $7.65. reasonable price as high potent of Zinc.
the worst sunscreen I've ever tried

it's thick like plaster, very difficult to spread, and also very oily and doesn't absorb. besides, it gave me an itchy rush (contact dermatitis), and I'm not allergic and never had any problems with other sunscreens. please don't buy this stuff.
