This is the best sunscreen ever! I tried Weleda and Dr. Hauschka, the other organic sunscreens, but they are way too oily! This LIve LIve one goes on easily and doesn't leave your skin greasy. And if you see the ingredients list, it's a pretty simple one, which i really like. i use it under make up and it's great! I hope iHerb will always have this product!

I bought this sunscreen based on the high reviews it received. I love the texture as I have sensitive skin that also breaks out easily. Very lightweight. I couldn't find this brand on the website www.cosmeticsdatabase.com but everything sounded natural so I took a chance on it. After reading some further info about the safety of sunscreen ingredients, I see two problems: 1) it contains Vitamin A which makes you more succeptible to burns and 2) it contains Orange Essential Oil (which again makes you more apt to burn - see www.newdirectionsaromatics.com and look up the orange essential oil - calls it photo-toxic). I wish companies would just stop putting these things in sunscreens...
Best I've Tried So Far
Posted by Reviewer1262490 on Dec 20, 2010
I've tried dozens of different sunscreens, and this is my favorite so far. It goes on super smooth, no whiteness at all, and within a few minutes it's completely absorbed into your skin. Haven't tried it under the harsh sun, but i think there's a review or two from people who said it protected very well. One thing i wonder is if they plan on removing the Vitamin A from the product, considering the current questions over it's safety in sunscreen. Hopefully they do.
best natural sunscreen

I have oily skin so i was afraid that this would cause pimples and make me ever oilier, Im happy to say neither of those things happened. It smells like citris, very pleasant. If feels great on the skin, not heavy at all. i love it.

Great sunscreen for body, not so good for face
Betacarotene NOT vitamin A
Posted by Healthy-Sarah on Dec 02, 2014
I haven't used this in the sun yet and will update once I have. So far it feels great on my skin - no visible white and not greasy. I'm a bit disappointed with the packaging as there is nothing on the label that I can see that tells you it's SPF30. One thing that is clarified on the label though is that it contains betacarotene NOT vitamin A (it actually says vitamin A (from Beta Carotene)). It really peeves me when companies do this Vitamin A and Betacarotene ARE NOT THE SAME THING. Betacarotene CAN be converted to vitamin A but this only happens in the small intestine in the presence of fat and bile. This aint gonna happen on your skin. So this is safe from a vitamin A and the sun perspective but I would hope that in future they might replace the orange oil with another fragrance where there is no danger of photo toxicity.
absorbs easily, nice smelling, no white cast

this is a great sunscreen! as i said in the title, it's a light weight lotion that absorbs easily and smells nice and doesn't leave a white coating on your skin. as for it's effectiveness, i went snowboarding for half a day with it and came home barely tanned. it also works well on my 3hr hikes. i have extremely sensitive skin and it has never irritated my skin and sweat doesn't sting my eyes which can happen with some other sunscreens. oily or combo skin will have no problems with it as a moisturizer/sunscreen in one but dry skin will want to layer some of their normal moisturizer under. it also absorbs fast enough to put under my mineral makeup.
Excellent for under make-up

This is great to wear under make-up. Absorbs quickly and non greasy. It's a fairly large sized tube so very good value for money.

This product is the best sunscreen I have ever used. It goes on smooth and easy, with no greasy feeling and absorbs right into the skin. It can be used alone or under make-up. I will keep buying this.
