So this sun screen caught my eye and I will never go back.I love the smell and it’s hands free no mess application. Goes on clear and not that weird ash tone you get sometimes with some sunscreens it’s spf 50 and water and sun protection so it’s my go to for when I want to go on a walk on a nice day.

Funny story: last year my sister and I were at the beach for a week and I was like "wait let me put sunscreen on" because I burn super easy. She doesn't burn often so she was rushing me. So I swiped the sunscreen stick across my chest and then just moved it around with my hand a bit to cover a little more area. When we went back to our hotel, I had two handprint marks where my skin didn't burn and the rest of my one shoulder was toast! At least I knew the sunscreen worked like a charm afterwards. You just gotta cover everything!! It stays on really well too.

I have a few tattoos with color and the sun fades them dramatically over the years so I like to buy this stick and roll it over all of my tattoos to give them extra protection. It does wonders! It helps preserve the color and my skin.

I used this so much this year at the pool and it was actually really long lasting through sweat and through chlorine filled water which was a nice surprise! I used this so much and didn’t even finish the whole bottle which was cool.

This is really cool its like a deodorant stick pretty much, Only thing is that it comes  out with a purple tint to it, so you really have to work it into your skin. I stopped using it because i only used it on my face and it really only worked for me if i wasn't wearing make up because i had to rub it in so much to blend in with my skin. But it does have instant relief and goes on with out much pressure.

This is our absolute favorite sunscreen! It’s extremely effective, even when going in and out of water. It smells amazing and tropical, and even my husband doesn’t mind the smell! Application is smooth and it doesn’t leave any gross white residue. There really isn’t anything bad about this sunscreen and we will always use it!

The stick is so easy to apply without the hassle of rubbing in the lotion. I use it for my face and my tattoos for easy application and full coverage. I was very pleased with the results. It did slightly melt in my beach bag when I left it on my towel (it was very hot) so just be aware to keep it in the shade!

THE BEST SUNBLOCK. I can not recommend this enough! I went on a trip to Aruba and applied this sunblock specifically "the stick" throughout my whole vacation and did not get burned at all! I recommended to a friend who has very fair skin and she was ecstatic and refuses to use any other product since she tried this.

We tried this sunscreen stick, and It really didn’t meet my expectations. It felt oily, and didn’t rub into your skin well and felt some what heavy. Yeah here is room for improvement. I was dissapointed in this product.

I love this sunscreen stick! It is easy to carry around and perfect for all activities. I like that it does not wash off when you are in the water. It is super gentle on the skin and does not make you feel sticky. I think a smaller package would be great, but this sunscreen really works!

does this leave a thick film on your face or does it absorb pretty well?
