    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive faces I have used many other sunscreens thought out the years and have always had trouble with breakouts from them. I bought the UV Pure for my son who was 2 and figured I would try it on my own face first. I have to say it's my new favorite product. I wear it everyday and would recommend anyone with oily sensitive skin to give it a try.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Protection for Sensitive Skin I tried EltaMD UV Pure after I had a reaction to the UV Sport formula. What I like about this formula is that it has 10% Zinc Oxide, combined with 5.5% titanium dioxide- this means that the formula protects against UVA II (tanning rays) and UVA I (long wave and potentially melanoma risk factor) and it's very water resistant. I live in the hot humid south of Texas, where you can walk outside at 8am and start sweating immediately. This formula stays on and doesn't cause a rosacea flair. Because of the titanium, it does go on very white- but if you apply evenly (to a clean shaven face, or to your body) and you blend a little bit it does dry clear. I can put this on in the morning and not worry about my protection throughout the day (for incidental sun exposure walking the dog or driving the car). If you are going to be in the sun for more than an hour I would certainly reapply. Give this one a try if you need a water resistant formula and have sensitive skin.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typical Zinc Oxide Product I've used this for about a month as both a daily moisturizer and as a sunscreen. Had only a few small breakouts on my sensitive neck. It applies better than some Zinc Oxide products that I've used. But like all Zinc products, it's caulky looking and doesn't absorb. Instead you appear to be wearing white face make up. It also leaves a washable stain on dress shirt collars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like product, but not the cap on the container This sun screen is very water resistant and therefore effective before swimming. I also use it if I plan to be outdoors for a long period and expect to sweat a lot.The zinc oxide is not only protective against UV, but also soothing to my skin. The feature I don't like however, is the cap on this bottle/container/tube. The hinges on the cap wear out and break quickly....long before all the product is used up.
