Used this for a week in Cuba swimming for hours in the ocean and in the intense sun. Protects well in the hot sun and in the water, very moisturizing, great for sensitive skin, easy to apply and best of all doesn't leave a white cast on my tan skin tone. It quickly comes out of the tube so keep that in mind when applying it. I applied it daily 4-5x/day for the week and I still have some left over in the tube. Highly recommend and the price is great for a natural sunscreen!

Great product! Many natural sunscreens are pasty, but this one is easy to apply, gives your skin a glow, and works for darker skin tones. I agree with Kia below that it is difficult to find natural sunscreens for dark skin that doesn't give leave the skin with white streaks.
The only complaint I have is the packaging. It is quite liquidy (which is fine), but the tube is awkward and it often squeezes out too much. A pump would be better.

I have sensitive skin but don't like to use products that are tested on animals. As a person with light-brown skin, this was very very hard to find. Many natural sunscreens contain zinc and/or titanium dioxide, which give my skin an unattractive streaky grey-white tint. Eeven the ones that promise not to leave white streaks have not lived up to their promises: I've had some humiliating vacation pictures as a result.
This sunscreen was the answer to my prayers: Fragrance-free for my sensitive skin; free of those white mineral powders that don't look good on my skin; and not tested on animals to match with my ethics. Yes, it is more liquidy that most sunscreens, but I actually find this makes it easier to spread. I also use Alba's SPF 40 Facial sunscreen all year round and am very happy with it. I would give this sunscreen 6 stars if possible.
My only issue is that it's not available all year round on Well.ca; if you like it as much as I do, stock up when it's on sale!
