The new formula is a deal breaker

-May 13, 2013
The old ingredients (15% titanium dioxide) were much simpler. The new formula (17% titanium dioxide) has more ingredients and gave me a bad allergic reaction that couldn't even be calmed by cortisone cream. The old formula was great and I don't know why they would ruin it, but they did.

Not a sunscreen at all!

-April 23, 2012
This product was recommended to me as a sunscreen by a pharmacist for my sensitive skin. I specifically requested something that I could use for activitities at higher altitude. Today I tested the product on a sunny day on Mt Rainier at 8600 feet of elevation while skiing and suffered a serious sun burn. I reapplied this product on my face and neck several times throughout the day (at least 5 times) and both areas are completely burned. I applied it on my arms maybe twice throughout the day and suffered a very, very bad and painful burn. The results of using this product are as if I had used no sunscreen at all. My friends used a regular sunscreen today and got no sunburn or not even redness. This is a horrible, dangerous product that doesn't work as suscreen at all!

love it

-March 23, 2012
This powder kept my skin protected for an entire week in Waikiki. I used it on my face every day and it was the best protection I have ever used. My skin does not tolerate sunscreen, but the powder was amazing. I definitely recommend for those who can not use lotions and have sensitive skin. What a life-saver!

Don't buy if you have acne

-July 24, 2011
I went to a spa and purchased this and they told me because it's a mineral spf it would be good for my skin. It caused me to break out into boils (on my face). Not cool at all. I would never recommend this to anyone. I wasted 46.

Excellent Addition to Your SPF Routine

-July 20, 2011
I bought this to throw on when I am just running outside for a few mins. & do not want to take the time to apply my regular SPF moisturizer (which always looks greasy no matter which brand I use). I think it is perfect for that, as long as you use a lot & then just lightly brush off the excess with a brush. Also great for over your regular SPF moisturizer & makeup, as a light powder with some extra SPF protection.
But if you use this product as your only SPF, I don't see how it could give you enough protection--it is just a fine, light powder that wouldn't seem to give you enough coverage & would not last on your skin all day. But it has no strong or bad fragrance, is very light--not at all masky or cakey, and is easy to dispense & use, right down to the end of the container.
