Birchbox Breakdown

Lifeguards’ skills aren’t limited to scanning the horizon for sharks and showing off their ripped abs—they could also teach us a thing or two about wearing sunscreen. That’s why we stood up and paid attention when we learned that this sweat-proof, water-resistant SPF 50 lotion is endorsed by the American Lifeguard Association. It’s designed to moisturize skin with a blend of organic botanicals and is completely hypoallergenic—good news for sensitive types. Plus, the sheer formula blends in completely so you won’t be left with any white residue.

How to Use

Smooth a generous amount all over your body. Apply at least fifteen minutes prior to sun exposure.

Smells heavenly

Unlike most other sunscreens, this one smells awesome! It's not as greasy as others and has great coverage. My boyfriend even liked it.

Okay...
Purchased

I really wanted to love this sunblock but I just could not. I bought it because it is organic and hypoallergenic. The smell is great and so is the texture because it just feels like a regular lotion and it is not sticky. However it does leave white residue once it is completely dry. No matter how hard I tried to blend it in I would end up with white residue on my skin and I just did not like it. It does protect against sunburn very well but the white patches on my skin were definitely a big no for me.

Perfect for Summer

It was hard finding a facial sunscreen that didn't have alot of chemicals and would not irritate my eyes. When I used this sample product I noticed that it didn't cause any irritation. I will definitely buy the full product. It smells good and it's perfect for sensitive skin like mine.
