Not Transparent

I have used this before and I don't remember it being this thick and white.   I wanted an SPF to wear to the pool, lake, exercising outside but it looks like straight zinc.  I love EltaMD products but this one I guess isn't for me anymore.

Very thick

Not my favorite EltaMD sunscreen. I like a water resistant sunscreen but Active is just too thick. I was hoping it would glide on smoother than Sport but that is not the case. It is a very good sunscreen but not for me.

Game changer

Serious game changer! Protects my fair skin while hiking, boating and swimming without getting in my eyes. It applies nicely and leaves your skin glowing instead of looking chalky or white. Stocking up now for summer activities.

Great for active kids

I use this on my kids who are out in the Florida sun for hours a day. Coverage is great and no burns, just make sure to reapply per instructions. Yes, there is a white cast, it’s a mineral sunscreen! Haven’t met a mineral sunscreen without one! Rub it in well especially at the hairline and you’ll be fine.  If you want a mineral sunscreen for an active lifestyle this is great.

Works but classic sunscreen issues

This isn't a miracle product. It is sticky as heck and leaves a white cast. However, it does a wonderful job of protecting your skin and for days where I don't care how I look (I just want protection from the sun), I reach for this product!

It has potential

I cannot do sunscreen with any chemicals, so I am a huge fan of Elta's Physical Tinted Spf 41. I was hoping I would love this just as much, but 1. It is difficult to rub into skin. If you have dry skin, you may need a moisturizer before applying this. 2. The white cast is strong. It does go away, but it is still there. I tried combining the Physical Tinted with this one and it helped a little but...3. the finish is a bit too shiny for me. I would have loved it when I was in my 20s with pretty, dewy skin. I will keep the sunscreen and mix it with the tinted to use on my neck. I like that it's moisturizing, not too heavy, doesn't irritate my skin, and that it's SPF 50.

Perfect Sunscreen for Pale & Sensitive Skin

Our favorite sunscreen. My husband's skin breaks out super easily and is very pale - this prevents sunburns AND breakouts.
