Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweatproof, No Stains I have used the SPF-30 product for two years now on road biking all-day rides. Summers in Oregon, then Arizona the rest of the year. I apply generously once before a ride and I'm good, even with fair skin. Doesn't sweat off and doesn't stain clothing. No sticky or greasy feeling. This is one of the few sunscreens you will find that does not contain Avobenzone (causes orange stains on fabric). Check out the Sawyer website for an education on sunscreens. Sawyer's SPF-50 is an entirely different product, which I find too greasy and an overkill for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only sunscreen I use I make special trips to REI just to buy this product. I am fair skinned and use sunscreen for daily exercise during my lunch hour in sunny CA. I have tried lots of products, and this is the only I can stand. It feels a tiny bit greasy for about 30 seconds when you first apply it but after that it absorbs and is not greasy at all. Also much more than other lotions I've tried, it stays effective after sweat and even some swimming in the ocean. This review is for the 30 SPF version. The higher SPF product seems completely different, itches like crazy, and feels way worse on my skin. I find that 30 SPF is plenty for my needs anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sun Protection! I'm very fair skinned. So, I have to use a lot of sunscreen in the summer. I've tried tons of different brands from the ones you can get at the drugstore to fancy dermatologist recommended ones. I finally found this one, and I've never looked back. I've been using it for a few years now, and it's my personal favorite. It absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin feeling soft & not greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunscreen I have ever used I live in Hawaii, and being fair skinned I have to wear sunscreen all the time. Most sunscreens irritate my face and have a sticky or oily feeling when worn, and are generally annoying to apply, Not this sunscreen. It rubs in easily and quickly and after its rubbed in you cant even tell its on you. Also it doesn't have any odor. The only problem is that it is not waterproof. I carry a waterproof spray on sunscreen if I'm going to the beach, but anytime I'm out and not swimming i use this. Because it is the best. Try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get's the job done Used this for hiking in the Sierra last summer, and this summer on a dive trip to the Caribbean. Stayed on, was invisible, and neither my kids nor I get sunburned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another positive review I bought this sunscreen specifically because it does not have the clothes-staining ingredient Avobenzone. The 30 SPF works great and I have had no issues with it staining. The product is reasonably priced as well. I plan to keep buying this product in the future for all sunscreen needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunscreen that stays on all day I bought this in the middle of a cycling vacation where I was out during the heat of the day in unrelenting sunshine and this stuff really works.
