Wanda E: I used their 25 spf for years. I used it almost daily living on the beach. I used the 25 on my grandchildren, without any side effects or burning of the eyes for anyone.

I bought the 50 SPF assuming it would have the same results. Unfortunately it burns the eyes whenever it gets in them. Due to this we have stopped using it.

Christin K: I have used it under my foundation or BB cream. It is not thick at all; however, I do have drier skin so it tends to soak in any hydration I give it so not too much feels thick on me (my correlation to thick is the Rosa Artica cream; the sunblock is more like the thickness of an every day lotion).

hope that helps!!
