sticky

This sunscreen is super protective, however it is very thick and difficult to wash off. It leaves a slight white coloring on your skin too. My husband said the smell is quite strong, and I agreed once I realized it had seeped into my clothes. If you don't mind the white, sticky, impossible to clean aspect you might as well buy a cheaper brand. Interestingly the "Sport" version is way easier to smooth in, not as sticky, and totally worth the cost. (I thought that's what I was buying, and when I learned the mistake I made, Dermstore was less than helpful with the return process.)

Great for outdoor summer activities

This sunscreen really stays on through activities and sweating. There is a white-cast but there almost aways is with high spf sport sunscreens. This sunscreen, unlike many, does not make me break out! I definitely recommend.

Great product

Easy apply, very light on your skin and doesn’t make it look oily. Perfect sunscreen for going swimming

Excellent sunscreen

I love this sunscreen because it is light-weight and dries completely so I can put makeup over it. It says it dries clear, but it still looks a little white once it has dried. Doesn't really matter though because I always wear it under makeup.

My favorite body sunscreen

I know I only gave 4 stars for texture but that's because this product is a bit thick and pasty BUT it absolutely protects me from the sun. I'd rather have a bit of a white cast on my skin than a sunburn. Best SPF that I've ever used

Great protection but very thick for face

This offers great protection but is very thick compared with other elta md products. Great coverage for sport but hard to blend into face.

Awesome Active Sunscreen

This sunscreen is perfect for being outdoors! I work outside with horses and Elta MD is the only brand I trust to keep my face protected without breakouts. I had been using the Elta MD Sport before and while that one is a lighter consistency and easier to spread I wanted to try a fully mineral sunscreen, so I made the switch. The UV Active does leave a very slight white cast on me (Light/Light Medium Skin), but I prefer a white cast when I'm outside working rather than a tinted sunscreen since they rub an orange tint on my clothes. Overall, if you are looking for a true sport sunscreen that has staying power and gives awesome protection, this is it! I only use it on my face/neck, and it has never caused me any breakouts or irritation. It is a little thick but I don't have difficulty applying it.

Perfect for a sport sunscreen

I buy this again and again. As advertised, this really works if you are active. It does not irritate your eyes and will not stain your white clothes yellow. It is thick and white and needs time to soak in.
