Also, I feel I use an adequate amount to get benefit from the SPF 20 claims, but being that I live in NYC and don't tan, I'm OK with only a little coverage. It actually is water resistant as well, but I definitely am sure to wash my makeup off before I go to bed. ...It gives a sheer to medium coverage, a natural finish (not too shiny, not too matte), and truly is water resistant and stays on all day.

Ingredient Call


I've been searching for the water resistant sunscreen for a while and most of the sun screens, whether it's physical or not, water resistant or not, from high end to drugstore, somehow make me oil after a few hours or simply do not stay on my face because I always sweat so much in summer. ...I'm cancer prone with fair skin and blue eyes, and tend to react to lots of products. This sunscreen hits all the marks- disappears quickly, water resistant, doesn't clog pores or cause breakouts/rash, doesn't run into eyes and sting, and a little goes a long way.

What it is:
A vitamin-enriched, oil-free, water- and sweat-resistant lotion that offers superior broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

What it is formulated to do:
Formulated for extreme conditions, Sun Guard forms a barrier of protection and stays on during intense physical activity in and out of the water so it won't run or drip into eyes. UVA and UVB absorbers—octinoxate, octisalate, and zinc oxide—screen harmful ultraviolet rays, while organic calendula flower soothes and comforts skin with natural calming properties.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates
