Kiss My Face Sunscreen Natural Mineral Formula SPF 40 with Hydresia -- 3 fl oz
best mineral sunscreen I've tried
This is probably the 5th mineral sunscreen I have used since switching away from chemical based sun protection, and it is the best I have found among the similarly-priced mineral products. Some rubbing is needed to blend in the whiteness of the zinc oxide, but it is achievable without any apparent loss of sun protection. The water resistance claim (40 min) seems pretty accurate as well.
The consistency of the product held up in both air conditioned and hot beach environments, with a little kneading/shaking of the tube (to be expected with many natural products).
The container is not sold full, which felt frustrating after my initial purchase, but I find that this sunscreen goes further than other brands because of its spreadability, so the smaller amount lasts quite a while.

I was extremely disappointed in this product. Upon receipt, the 3 oz bottle was only half full. At 11$ a bottle, that is extremely expensive for 1.5 oz. Overall, it was easy to apply, but did not work well. After first day of use, I was burned.

Good ingredients, but consistency not good
When I squeeze some of this product out of the tube, a clear, oily liquid emerges first, followed by the white sunscreen product. At first, I thought it was something at the beginning of the tube that would stop coming out. But I'm half-way through the tube, and that clear oil liquid still comes out first. The product itself is OK: a bit heavy, and it would look very oily on my skin were I not to follow it up with a light coating of sunscreen powder to take off the shine. I have continued to use this product despite the problems because almost all other sunscreens out there are full of nasty endocrine-disrupting chemicals, but Kiss My Face does need to work on the consistency of this product.

I'll buy this again
I was pleased with this sunscreen. At first I was concerned that it would be really difficult to rub into my skin or leave a white residue, but that wasn't a problem.

This product is fantastic! You just need to "prime" your skin with a light application of body oil or lotion before you apply any kind of pure physical "mineral" blocker like this one. "Priming" gives a much smoother application of this sunblock. I've tried over 7 different mineral blockers and this one NEVER separates or gets lumpy. If you don't prime this product it is a bit hard to scrub off in the shower (just like the other brands). I love this sunblock!
