SPF Protection: 30
Format: bottle

- waterproof

PLEASE NOTE: Because everyone's skin tone is so different and some people burn much more quickly than others, I have asked all Sun Product reviewers to NOT review sun products for their ability to protect you from getting burnt. You must use your own judgement to choose the right SPF level. Instead, we'll comment on other features (scent, oiliness, etc)

"Goes on like a lotion, dries like a powder"

To Purr About:
- waterproof and sweatproof
- very light cream almost instantly absorbs into skin
- no greasy after-feel
- dries so quickly, there's very little chance of sand sticking on your skin
- fragrant, banana-sweet smell

Claws Out:
- would love it if the fragrance wasn't so strong

Final Comments:
This is one of the lightest sunblocks I've ever tried in terms of feel. It's an extremely light cream that instantly absorbs into my skin and left no oily/greasy after-feel. I was quite impressed with how quickly it absorbed and how it felt afterwards. After 5 minutes, it felt as if I hadn't put on any sunblock at all! The only thing that kept me from giving this a perfect score is the fragrance - it's the typical tropical-banana smell, but it's a little too strong for me.

Rating (out of 5):
