Promising review: "I have been using this sunscreen every day for the past month and even in hot weather my skin doesn't look oily or greasy and it hasn't burned yet! I have oily combination skin and most sunscreen protectants break my skin out or make me look oily all day. This sun lotion was perfect because even when I leave it on my all day I didn't experience breakouts and it washed off easily with a water-based cleanser. There is no white cast even under makeup and flash photography, so that was nice. It uses mineral and chemical sun filters so you have a broad spectrum protection that lasts for hours even during outside activities. Will be purchasing again for the California summers." —Sarah Amazon CustomerGet it from Amazon for $13.77.
