ThinkBaby LiveStrong® Sunscreen SPF 50 plus -- 3 fl oz
I was looking for a sun cream with zinc oxyde screen (to avoid the white cast from titanium dioxyde), no harmful substances at all, and high SPF. I love the totally clean formula of Think Baby Livestrong. Wonderful formula! I find it quite easy to spread, a bit thick but only thick enough to do what I need it to. Once applied, it leaves no white cast on my fair skin. It just leave my skin shiny. The scent is kind of citrus-like, but doesn't linger. I have used it for about 8 months now. The protection is good - although it is not perfect (I still get freckles with this cream with no excess exposition), it is the best and safest I have tried among mineral sunscreens. It protects my skin very well on sunny days in town through the year, and offers good protection at the seaside in the summer. I like that it is not as drying as most mineral sunscreens which usually make my skin so dry and tight, but it still is drying on the area on the top of the cheekbones and near the eyes (where I need it the most to avoid dark spots). I wish they would make it a bit more moisturizing.

As the other reviewer stated, after about an hour in the sun, apparently I needed to reapply to my son bc his calves were lightly burned when we returned home from the beach with moderate activity in the sand and surf. Now I just reapply after we're in the sun for a bit and it's been working better. Applies nicely and doesn't leave one ghostly in appearance.

very pricey, so I expected more
Easy to apply considering the zinc oxide; but my husband and I both got a bit sunburned after a short while in the sun; I will continue my search for something more effective. I did love the ingredients which is why I bought it.
