Love that it safe, hate the white residue
I love that this sunscreen does not have the dangerous chemicals found in other leading sunscreens. I just wish it didn't leave the white residue on the skin and clothes. =0(
Not only does this sunscreen work well, but I feel good knowing that it is not toxic to my 10 week old son! Yes, it goes on white and it takes a little longer to rub in then most, but I don't mind. I almost prefer this because at least I know where I have applied it. I am very happy with the Episencial line and will continue to purchase their products!
Left a white film
I found this product did not apply very well and left a white film on me even after rubbing in for several minutes.
I found this suncreen hard to apply. It's thick and left white slime everywhere in its wake.
That said, it's no worse than most natural sunscreens, and it does work well.
For those seeking a quick, non-whiting application, I highly recommend Super Goop. It's the best I've found: goes on quickly, works and best of all leaves no whiteness.
This sunscreen works and is easy rub in
Rubs in well and works!
Love this sunscreen for so many reasons! It's difficult to find a sunscreen without tons of crazy chemicals that also rubs in well and works. I'd recommend rubbing the sunscreen in your fingertips for a moment to warm it so it'll rub in that much more easily, especially when trying to apply it to a 2-year old's face :)
If your child has sensitive skin this product line (any of the lotions made by them) have irritating ingredients. I have been in touch with the company and although very kind, admit that some of their products irritate sensitive skin. Just beware.
safest sunscreen i have found!
After my order arrived from ecomom, i immediately used the sunscreen on my 6 year old son, he has photodermatitis (allergic to the sun) when overexposed. I have been applying store-bought sunscreen until i did my research about sunscreens and I came across this being all natural and safe. My son has mild autism and he is very particular about textures, he hates the sunscreen sprays the most. He did not mind this at all (same with the episencial body butter), and even let me put it all over his arms, legs, neck and behind his neck and all over the face! It's due to it's non greasy texture i guess. I did have to rub it in a little more, because when i applied it to his face it got onto his hair line and it got white. I am now feeling good about what my little guy is using, knowing that i am not applying anything toxic. Happy mommy!
Best Option I've Found
I echo the other reviewers. Creamy, smells a little sunscreeny but not bad, doesn't get super white. The providers at my daughter's daycare use it on her every day. Sometimes it's a challenge to wash off, but that's probably an issue with all sunscreens.
Everyone in our house uses the sunscreen, including my toddler. Works well and isn't greasy. Good for sensitive skin.
