Great for body, not for face...It does go on white but I find that it does absorb well, the water resistant timing is good (lake swimming tested!) ...The only sunscreen I'll ever use.... - Oily texture: I agree, the texture can be off-putting. Most sunscreen are more creamy in texture. Personally, I think the texture of this particular sunscreen prevents the dreaded pilling that most heavier sunscreens cause.
