Just perfect. Light, no white cast, healthy\safe ingredients and lots of product for your money. Way to go, Devita! Thoroughly recommended ;o)
Update: Yes, I did rave about this one and I still use it because of it's truly fantastic ingredients and what it can do for skin as a moisturizer, BUT: When I went to Goa recently, I wore this all the time thinking it would keep me from tanning more than just a wee bit... I was so wrong. I did tan a surprising lot for wearing a 30 spf sunscreen. With other brands I tan minimally with that high factor, but something isn't right here. Devita must check this out! My guess is that the protection level is much closer to 15 than 30, and that is not good. Buyer beware!!!
Nevertheless I'm only removing one star and will continue to use this because of the before mentioned benefits, but I'm investing in a TRUE 30 spf sunscreen now...

This is the best sunblock ive ever used. the ingredient list is excellant. it does not contain titanium dioxide... which concerns some people. it leaves NO white residue whatsoever. i never sunbath, but for those of you who do, as you become tanned the sunblock will blend and absorb straight into the skin... leaving no greasy residue, no white residue and with no 'smell'. Would suit all skin shades.
An exellant product which also acts as a great moisturizer. will buy again. since there is a large amount (i also use this on my face) it lasts for a long time. well worth the money.
The best sunblock ever!

Or at least the best one I've tried. I hate, hate, hate sunscreen. But I LOVE this one! The "chemical" ones burn and feel greasy or tacky and give me a rash. I hate walking around in a sunscreen-scented cloud. I've tried many "mineral" sunscreens, only to have them burn, turn my fair skin whitish-purple, or to burn right through them. The best rated ones (Environmental Working Group) are usually like wearing crisco mixed with caulk. Devita Solar Body Block is light, silky and nearly odor-free. It rubs right on like a lotion, is invisible (really!) and barely noticeable. I actually forgot I had it on. No burn-through, either. I have a completely de-pigmented scar on my arm and it did not get pink at all in the afternoon sun. Husband declared it his favorite too. Ladies, you know how hard it is to get sunscreen on the men. This is the one.
Near perfect but read my update

11.2012: Great product. Ingredients seem clean. Easily applied, fast absorption. No white face/body. I use it for the face too. Like the smell, reminds me of the glue I used as a child (ok maybe not great for everyone?). I didn't give 5 stars because it is not waterproof. Reasonnably priced.
Love iHerb, great service, prices; shipping rates.
Not so fantastic anymore, as previous user said, zinc formulation has changed and it is more difficult to apply with small white residue and hands that ends up white.
Please go back to former formulation
Used to be good

This sunscreen has a new formula, and it's nothing like the old one.
Well, the formula is the same, except they switched to a different type of zinc, which completely changes the texture of the product.
Before it went on smooth with no whiteness. Now it is much whiter (only a potential problem on the face though).
But worst of all, it balls up. Which doesn't look good. And probably partly diminishes it's effectiveness.
I've got 3 three tubes at home that I'm trying to use up. I can only use them on my arms. The only place the balling in not so noticeable.
Once they're used up I won't buy again.
It's too bad. Devita should find a better quality zinc, or improve their manufacturing process. Because I used to really like this sunscreen.
