I really don't like this sunscreen. It smells like caulk. And it started to separate into a clear watery liquid that would just drip out and what is left a thick, white paste. I wish I could return it because it is so gross smelling. Unfortunate that it is terrible because it is supposedly reef safe and biodegradable.
Great texture. White cast disappears. No fragrance. Coral Reef friendly. and Vegetarian! I thought I had found my HG, but after visiting the fair and diligently reapplying Every two hours (I set an alarm each time), I came home and my face was sadly, pink and sunburnt. Not good since I use tretinoin at night, and need good sun protection.
I bought this sunscreen to replace my prior Kiss My Face SPF 30 sunscreen, both of which are cruelty-free, gentle, & effective. I am still using my KMF sunscreen & haven't yet used the new Alba sunscreen. However, when I do, I know that I will be happy with my purchase, knowing that it is gentle, cruelty-free, & full of wonderful skin-loving ingredients! Additionally, it was on sale, which was great!
The fact that it was under 10 dollars and I didn't get burned is great. The fact that it doesn't contain harmful ingredients is most important to me. It felt like it took alot of effort to rub it in to make the white streaks from the product go away. I didn't like how greasy my skin feels after application. I would order this again if I can't find another product that isn't as greasy.
I bought this product after experiencing breakouts from other sunscreens. At first, I thought I made a big mistake by buying it because it left my skin looking super white but all I had to do was blend it in. It doesn't feel thick on my skin and it doesn't burn my eyes or make me breakout so far. I really like it and I use it after my moisturizer and it looks fine. I would just be careful in making sure that you've blended it out all the way cause it can just sit on your face.
