great for very fair skin

I have a family history of melanoma, and with my lily-white, Celtic skin I am maniacal about sun protection. I use this before sun exposure either alone, or in conjunction with a SPF BB cream. The thicker consistency makes it easy to apply, but it leaves your skin matte, not greasy. I have slightly oily skin and larger pores than I'd like, and this sunscreen keeps my oils balanced rather than worsening the problem. After returning from a week-long Caribbean cruise and applying this to my face and neck twice daily, everyone noted that I didn't look like I'd gotten any sun -- good news for me! However, for anyone whose complexion is anything darker than paper white, I'd consider buying the darker shade, because this stuff goes on WHITE!
