Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sheer Delight This zinc sunscreen is so silky and invisible on my skin I can hardly believe it! I'm not even aware I'm wearing it but I'm sure those wicked aging UV rays know because this is SPF 45. I didn't know sunscreens could be so beautiful and wish I had started wearing it daily a long time ago. This has made a sunscreen convert out of me! And the price is fabulous for a really quality product.
