Alba Botanica™ Hawaiian Green Tea Natural Sunblock SPF 45 -- 4 fl oz
Not for oily skin
I thought my review might help women(and men) with oily skin. I usually buy the spf 30 with aloe vera, but i decided it would be better and safer to purchase the spf 45. I have to say i was really disappointed when i first put this on my face. I have oily skin and this product is really NOT for oily skin at all, my face was so shiny after putting this on, i had difficulty covering it with powder even after my normal foundation. I tried if for 5 days but i just broke out in spots from the oil. I really dont like the smell of the green tea either. This is not for me at all. I have gone back to the spf 30, and with the aloe vera, this is just excellent for oily skin. The only problem i have now is ive discovered these sun screens contain Dimethicone which is another big problem entirely. This is a chemical so bad for us. Once ive used up my spf 30, i'll have to have rethink! Sorry Alba Botanica! Take the dimethicone out and i'll continue to purchase your product!

This is my favorite sunblock ever!
I used to work outside for about 10 hours per day in the South in the summer, and that is when I started using this sunblock. I've used it every summer since. It's not greasy and the scent is pleasant and subtle. I use it when we go to the beach or to the river, too. When in the water, I reapply about every hour or two due to my history of sunburns. I could probably go a little longer, but I am paranoid. I also really like the ingredients, and I'm not afraid to cover myself head to toe! I've used other sunblock, but nothing compares to this stuff! It's the best!

Works well and smells good too.
Used this all summer on my children who love to play outside. No sunburns and they smelled good too!
