After reading all the glowing reviews, I was super excited to get a clean sunscreen. Especially about how lightweight and pleasant smelling so many reviews said it was. First, even after shaking the bottle, I pumped and pumped and only a clear, oily liquid came out. It smelled a little rancid. I thought that was the sunscreen and tried to apply it (gross), but realized it was not after I unscrewed the bottle and saw the white product. After getting through that and trying the actual product, I don't love the aesthetics. It is hard to apply and 'drags' and, as others have mentioned, leaves a white coating on your skin. I am very pale and actually it makes my skin look more even (so no foundation needed), but also ghostly, so I have to brush some bronzer all over. This would be doable if I liked applying the product. But between the unpleasant smell and the drag during application, I don't find myself reaching for this expensive product very often. It could be that my batch/bottle had separated or even gone rancid, and that if I had received a fresh batch with the oily liquid mixed in properly that it would be easier to spread and would smell more pleasant. So perhaps my experience is not reflective of what others are receiving. But from my pov, I was disappointed. I applaud the clean effort though, and hope that they succeed at making clean sunscreen that is great to use. Also, others have said that they apply a small amount so then the white cast is less, but please note that if you apply too thin a layer then the spf protection may not be as high as indicated on the bottle.
A better alternative than other broad spectrum spf facial products
I bought this product because I was interested in an everyday SPF that is sustainable and clean in formulation with little to no cast (I don't wear any makeup over it) to protect my face and chest on daily outings in Southern California. I have dry and sensitive skin, so something gentle and moisturizing was also important to me. This product is expensive, but I feel that it delivers on all the above fronts. It's in a glass bottle; it's broad spectrum protection with non-nano zinc oxide (none of the other nasties you find in other SPFs). 2 pumps is enough to cover my face and my chest. If I saturate my face more, then there is a very slight cast, but if I put exactly 1 pump on my face and 1 on my chest there is no cast at all. My dry skin loves the natural oils in this product and I find that I often apply it directly after my rose toner. I will repurchase and highly recommend for those who are willing to spend a little more for a high-quality product.
My skin is usually irritated by sunscreens, and I was looking for a natural product to replace a BB cream I've been using. This has been a gentle everyday SPF. It does leave a white cast, but I'll take that over irritation any day!
Great consistency. It does leave a white cast on me (I am dark skin) but now I mix with my serum and it works beautifully! I will continue to buy this product.
