I bought this sunscreen as well as another bottle of Alba to take on a recent beach trip. It will be now one of my go-to sunscreens. I discovered it while researching safe and natural sunscreens and this brand topped the list. Scent Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunblock Sport SPF 45 has a light scent not heavy and tropical like many other sunscreens. I like to use it everyday so I don't want to smell like coconuts all the time! Absorption This lotion absorbs quickly and is not greasy or heavy. It doesn't clog my pores even when I use it on my face. It doesn't make my skin white either like some other natural products. Longevity This sunscreen lasts all day when I use it for outdoor activities. I haven't had to reapply it unless I'm swimming for a long period. Effectiveness I haven't got sun burned using this product and I've been using it for a month or so now working in the yard or taking walks with my dog. Ease of Application This lotion is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. My only drawback is that it's a little more expensive than mainstream sunblocks.
