Aubrey Natural Sun High Protection Active Lifestyles Sunscreen SPF 30 Plus Tropical Scent -- 4 fl oz
This sunscreen is easy to apply, not too thick, and I like that it uses a physical sunblock, zinc oxide.
I imagined the "tropical scent" to be more of a coconut scent, but it's not. It is a fruity scent, but I don't know if I'd describe it as tropical. My kids do not like the smell, but I think it is fine. I also have the Aubrey unscented sunscreen for faces and I like that one, too.

Fantastic-- not too chalky, but indelible!
Since learning that chemical sunscreens damage coral reefs and may disrupt the endocrine system, I began a quest to find the best water-resistant, broad-spectrum physical sunblock that wasn't too thick or greasy. One common complaint is that they leave the skin looking chalky or ghostly. If you own up to the fact that some degree of this is inevitable with products that have a high concentration of zinc and/or titanium dioxide (unless they have those maligned nanoparticles), you shouldn't be disappointed. I have golden skin, and I didn't notice much chalkiness with Aubrey's sunblock at all. Just use a sufficient amount and rub it in really well. My only complaint is that this stuff will not come off, even in the shower. However, at least I know it's still protecting me when I go swimming. Light, coconut-like scent. I'm very pleased.

This is a good, effective sunblock. It goes on a little thick, but if you rub it in well it is not whitening. Actually, it comes out of the tube green, but it doesn't look green on your face. I use it if I will be out in the sun for awhile, but not daily.

Love this sunscreen. The best part is that if it happens to get in your eyes it does not burn like most sunscreens.

Aubrey Organics really has the safest ingredients and is not crazy pricey. Chemical-free UVA+UVB, water resistant, no animal testing or ingredients. Has a creamy texture that blends right in and feels dry on the skin. Doesn't leave a white or greasy film. The scent is not overpowering once applied (tropical almond) but if you are sensitive, there's an unscented version. This is a fantastic, luxurious feeling suncreen.
