I got this sunscreen after researching about chemical sunscreens and how they can be detrimental to reefs and your skin. This sunscreen is alright, I've used it for a year and I've had no side effects after use. But it is quite thick and hard to spread, it leaves a white cast that goes away only after 30 mins. If you really rub it in, it works fine. Due to its low cost, I think I can deal with this, a dab of tinted powder is a quick fix. All in all, due to a lack of zinc sunscreens in my area, I will repurchase.
OTHER INFO
I've got acne prone skin and this didn't cause any flare ups. A little bit of calamine based moisturizer on top gets rid of shine too. So I guess this does JUST what is says it does - but not really dry touch - but also not greasy...
