This is my favorite sunscreen and I have tried a bunch (thinkbaby, trukids, aubrey organics, badger, etc.). It has a great consistency and goes on smoothly. It smells great, kind of like coconut mint. It does leave you skin a lighter tone, but all natural sunscreens do. It's not as bad as others. It works. I've been in full sun for 3-4 hours and no sun burn. It's safe. It has the same exact ingredients as Tropical Sands which is rated as a 1 on the EWG website. Also, it's cheap! At least compared to other natural sunscreens which can be $3-$6 per ounce. This stuff is under $2 and ounce!
I find this sunscreen dries a couple of minutes after application with no oily or heavy residue at all. I was previously using Badger sunscreen and did not like the heavy residue it left, especially on my face.

It rubs off onto anything you brush up against. Aesthetically whitening, so won't want to wear this on your face if going shopping, to work etc.
Good Quality for a Good Price

I was really happy with this product and would buy again. It worked great when we remembered to re-apply about every 2 hours on my very fair skin children. It does leave a slight white residue but I know that is due the natural ingredients. I feel like it is a more natural option without being overly expensive. I have tried others that cost more and come in a smaller bottles and I like this better. I like to have a clean, natural sunscreen but I also don't like pay $4-5 per ounce. This was a good compromise on price and quality. A little goes a long ways for coverage. Application is pretty easy but a messy as it does take quite some rubbing to apply. Its not too greasy.

I like this sunscreen, and it works very well. However,.it is quite thick, and takes a while to rub in. It also leaves a whitish cast, and is a little drying. This is why I don't give it five stars.
smooth and invisible

this sunscreen is very easy to apply, leaves no white residue and blends into the skin almost immediately! i havent gone out to the sun long enough to know if the sunscreen works, but i trust Dr Mercola's product enough to give me spf 30.
Not a fan

I am not even certain it works. We always end up burnt. It washes off in water so I'm not even convinced it's water resistant. It does make you look white. It is quite dry so you can't rub it in like an oily cream or lotion. I would not buy it again, or even finish my bottle unfortunately.
