This lotion goes on smoothly and does not have your traditional sunscreen smell, but rather a more herbal, earthy smell. It is given a maximum of four starts for UVA (UV aging) by the EU sunscreen rating system. The container is not recyclable and it is not waterproof, but it is one of the least toxic sunscreens out there, contains soothing essential oils (including avocado oil), and is great to use as a base for make-up. In addition, it works well for individuals with acne rosacea as compared to other SPF 30 products. So if you have sensitive skin, or need something for everyday use, this is a great choice.
