No stinging, even if it gets in your eyes!
When my daughter and I recently took a trip to the beach for a week, this was the product we used on our faces, necks and shoulders ... the areas we felt needed the most protection. We used Kiss My Face spray for the rest of our skin. The most impressive thing about this product is that it doesn't STING! I have extremely sensitive skin and eyes and have never found anything like this before. We enjoyed riding the ocean waves and unlike name brand products designed for the face that burn horribly if it comes in contact with your eyes (which it usually does when you swim) my daughter and I were both amazed that we could go underwater and not have chemicals running into our eyes, burning them and turning them bloodshot. The product stays put and protects also. Love it, love it, love it!

My son swam/played all day in the sun and avoided a sunburn! Goes on easily and doesn't smell. Do need to reapply if you stay in the water or sweat a lot.

Very white and sticky
I swim in an outdoor pool all summer so it's very important to have a good sunscreen, but I absolutely refuse to use chemical sunscreens. This one goes on very heavy and very white. It's pretty comical actually, but I really don't care what it looks like when I'm swimming. After an hour in the pool I do have some tan lines, but no burn. I've also worn this sunscreen for running and cycling. I end up looking sort of like I've been tarred and feathered - everything that's in the air ends up stuck to my skin. Better kept for the pool.

Best bet for sensitive skin
I have tried endless varieties of sunscreens and creams, only to have contact reactions to the ingredients. Sometimes to chemicals, often to botanicals. It seemed like I would never find something simple, scent and fragrance free that would do the trick for me. This stuff IS the trick.
Keep in mind, it is a physical block. It is a very thick white paste that is hard to spread and to 'blend'. You will end up looking a little pasty/ vampirish, but if you're going to be getting a decent amount of sun exposure and have sensitive skin I would definitely give this a shot.
(For some of the men- the thickness/whiteness of the product makes it an absolute mess to blend into hairy areas. Not sure how/if you could work around that.)
