I'm a fan of any product that uses limited chemicals and is safer for myself and my family. Truthfully, I am a fan of a The Honest Company's products and use quite a few of them. This sunscreen is nice overall. It doesn't smell and it seems to work great. It is a bit hard to spread and rub in, however, I don't mind knowing that sunscreen is protecting my little ones skin and often I'm not quite sure the lightweight sunscreens do that. So yes this does leave a white film on the skin or you'll be rubbing it in forever to get it to completely disappear. Overall, the safe ingredients and lack of dangerous chemicals rocks! It even works for me without causing breakouts! Scent It really doesn't have a scent which I prefer. Absorption It's not easily absorbed into the skin. It leaves a faint white residue or film covering the skin. Longevity It lasts for a few hours it seems. We reapply often though no matter what because of having sensitive skin. Effectiveness No sunburns, breakouts, or skin irritations which has been great! Ease of Application It doesn't absorb well making the application a tedious process.
