Ocean Potion Protect & Nourish Sport Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 Fragrance Free -- 8 fl oz
I won't be buying this product again. It doesn't make skin feel greasy and it does protect from sunburn; however, there are some drawbacks to using it. First, it tends to flake almost immediately after it is applied. This white flaking gives the appearance of dry, dead skin flaking off, which is not only unattractive, but also annoying. It makes me wonder how long the protection actually lasts (the label says it's waterproof for 80 minutes). But if it flakes off so quickly, how can you tell? I guess you just have to wait and see if you get burned. Also, despite the fact that it claims to be fragrance free, there actually is a slight menthol scent. (One of the ingredients is menthol, which I did not notice until after I bought it.) Menthol can be a skin irritant, so that might be the ingredient responsible for the flaking. What I thought was product flaking off might actually have been my own skin! Either way, I wouldn't recommend it, especially for anyone with sensitive skin.
