    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used ELTA BLOCK and ELTA LITE for over 20 years, because everything else would burn my face. My grand daughters use to cry when you even got near them with sunscreen. I told my son that it must be burning them. They only use Elta for last 18 years. Now the same product is now MD ELTA. My dermatologist started selling it about 2 years ago. I told her I used the same Thing from the same company for half the price. She the Dr started ordering The one I use. But now they have discontinued the older one and MD ELTA is twice the price. We now as a family cannot afford to use it anymore which is sad as we live in Florida.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite sunscreen I've tried dozens of sunscreens from Europe, Asia and the US. This one is great. Ingredients and level of protection are fantastic. This goes on mostly sheer; the white cast is minimal and it isn't greasy. I also love that you can buy it in a 3 oz or 7 oz container.
