  1. Paba's good stuff
    Overall
    100%
    Paba sunscreen (the only really natural screen other than ZnO) is awesome stuff, and I can't find it anywhere but here. Everywhere else brags about being Paba-free, and then sells stuff loaded with chemicals. It was the only sunscreen many years ago. The bad rap first came from the fact that it can stain clothes, and then the drug companies latched onto other options.

  2. works well on face
    Overall
    100%
    I use this sunscreen on my face with good results. It smooths on easily without a white residue and without feeling dry or sticky. It does not irritate my eyes (and I have sensitive eyes). I've never had it sweat into my eyes. I've worn it for long hikes and for regular daily activities, and it does protect from burning. Besides my face, I've used it on my arms and legs and on my teen son as well. It does wash off after being in the water a while, so plan on reapplying in that case. I prefer this one (Paba Sunscreen) to the zinc oxide sunscreen, which is whiter and much harder to rub in. They both work well. Plan to buy a new bottle at least once a year, since it starts to separate and get weirdly runny after sitting in the cabinet for 12 months or so.

  3. This Stuff is MAGIC!
    Overall
    100%
    I am fair skinned and bald. I sell Toyotas for a living and spend a lot of time outside in the Colorado sun. So, as you can imagine I definitely have to protect myself. I started using the Paba Sunscreen a little over a year ago and it is amazing. I apply it once per day in the morning before I go to work and it protects me ALL DAY without reapplication. This is the first of many, many products that I have used that I have not had to reapply in order to keep from burning the heck out of my head. My hats off (literally) to Real Purity. I use the deodorant too and it is also amazing, not to mention their fantastic customer service. Keep up the GREAT work Real Purity!

  4. GOOD SUNSCREEN FOR DRY SKIN
    Overall
    100%
    This sunscreen works well for my mid-50s, very dry skin. Not sure I would call it greasy exactly, but it does leave a sheen. If it leaves me a little pale some days, I just use a little blush. Seems to work well. I don't freckle as much when using, and do not burn.

  6. Greasy, but love the Zinc Oxide version!
    Overall
    60%
    This sunscreen works well for short periods and, as with all Real Purity products, does not irritate my skin. However, it is greasy, and I GREATLY prefer the new sunscreen being developed with zinc oxide. This product absorbed fast and easy, and left a somewhat matte finish. (I do wish it could have a higher SPF, like at least a 30.)

    My rating for the paba sunscreen is a 3 (it would be a 4 if it was less greasy), but the zinc oxide version gets a solid 5!

    This sunscreen goes on easily and has a moisturizing effect. However I find that it makes my skin itchy towards the end of the day. Initially I thought this was only a problem with my neck and décolleté area, but it also makes my arms itch. When I stop using it the itching goes away. I would like to note that I am a highly sensitive person, so this product might not bother most people. In fact, the rest of my family does not have a problem with it at all. So, my rating of four stars is a composite of my and my family's reaction. I will continue to buy it for my family, though I cannot use it. One more note, this product truly is unscented, for which I am very thankful!!

  8. Bring on the summer sun!
    Overall
    100%
    I recently bought this sunscreen because I've been trapped inside because of the never ending winter we just had and I was jetting off to sunny Arizona for a conference... I really liked the consistency and it wasn't greasy at all. I had no negative reaction and didn't get sunburnt either, that's a win-win in my book!!

  9. Good sunscreen
    Overall
    80%
    I am brunette, medium skinned. I have used this product for over 2 years and have never been burned. I usually repeat the application after about 2-3 hours just to be safe. It goes on easily and is not super greasy. Dries quickly and doesn't stain clothing. I prefer it over the zinc since that leaves behind a white residue which is okay in some situations but in others you want to look a bit more polished and not have it be obvious you have applied something to your face or body.
