Nature's Gate Sport Block Sunblock SPF 50 Fragrance-Free -- 4 fl oz
Heavy and oily but...
This product was heavy, gooey and oily something I did not expect based on all the reviews I read. Given this consistency, a little goes a long way. Once it is on your skin, it doesn't feel heavy or like you are wearing a mask but it is greasy/oily to the touch.
I suppose it works. I am still using it several times a week.
I am a dark-skinned person and like all sunblock (since the inclusion of zinc oxide in every freaking product!) the product makes me look blue like a smurf. Yes, I get a blue-ish cast. Happy to say that this sunblock seems to rub in or soak in or fade better than most so that the blue-ish cast fades quickly or is not easily detectable.
I wish Neutrogena still made the Healthy Defense Oil-Free sunblock lotion. It looked great alone or under make-up, healed my skin, wasn't oily, was waterproof, and I did not look blue!
For 3 years now I've been looking for a good sunblock that doesn't make me blue...literally.

It may be great for water sports, but not for my gardening and walking activities. It stays on, and on, and clogs my pores.

Very good sunblock, I highly recommend it!
This is a VERY good sunblock, and one tube lasts all summer for me, even though I put it on fairly often living in sunny, hot CA. It can be a little thick, I wouldn't suggest it for your face if you have sensitive skin or oiliness, but it really keeps my very fair skin from burning, even when I'm in the sun for hours. I've tried a lot of different sunscreens, and this is the best I've found! I use the face block of this brand everyday with my moisturizing lotion. It works GREAT! Glad for a more natural sunblock that works WELL! :) Thank you!

I really love this product! I use it on my face under makeup everyday. Goes on smooth and doesn't feel greasy. I use several of Nature's Gate products. Love all of them!

My search for a sunscreen that is almost chemical-free, stays on through sweaty activities, and doesn't irritate, is over! This sunscreen work beautifully!
