      • limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

      • before use on children under 6 months: Ask a physician

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great protection, intense white cast This sunscreen won't let you burn even in midday tropical sun. But it comes at the price of a very visible white cast, especially ones you exit the ocean, and extreme dryness. My skin looks 15 years older when I use it, my arms get covered in micro wrinkles and my legs get a deadly color. I love EltaMD sunscreens, but in my opinion, this one is only suitable for extra pale people with oily skin. Water (shower or ocean) doesn’t wash it off. You’ll need to rub it with an oil of your preference followed by a good cleanser or makeup remover.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Leaves a white cast on my pale Asian skin tone, but I find it manageable since I don’t wear this for daily use. Instead I use this for my workout sessions because it’s a more tenacious, water-resistant formula that wicks away my sweat without being disrupted by it while I exercise. Sometimes I use it on my neck instead too, since the cast there is less noticeable. I would avoid this if you have darker skin - it will be unforgiving. However, the 10% zinc and 5.5% titanium dioxide together offer better UVA protection than Elta’s other combination sunscreens, which I appreciate. As always, I don’t get any stinging or breakouts when using eltas products despite having rosacea and acne.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen ever! I have used this UV Pure for years and will continue for life. I am prone to breakouts with other sunscreens and this does not clog pores. Also love that it gets the highest rating from EWG for being effective and not having carcinogens. Please never stop making this!

    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 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.
