It does leave a fine white film, which I didn't mind and certainly blocked out the sun. But after using it on several occasions, I now get this itchy, tingly feeling on my face!
05/11/2021, By Aidoue
works well on kids and adults. It is a mission to get off, but it should be that way so that it can stay on in the wind and water.
04/11/2021, By Salome
Very happy! I'm very picky about my sunscreen in terms of greasiness factor and of course effectivity. I took a shot on this one and am very pleased with the results - can be used on kids in the pool but also on my face under my foundation (with some powder).
27/09/2021, By Alma
Awesome sunscreen. A bit oily, you will shine for days. But it does its job very well :)
11/07/2021, By Helen
The most excellent product. Doesn't whiten my skin, very moisturising, so easy to apply, and it doesn't "sweat" like a lot of other sunblocks when you exercise. And it's all natural. This is by far the best sunblock I've tried.
21/03/2021, By Mel
By far the best natural sunscreen! I love how moisturizing it is and keeps my skin safe from the sun all day! I've added it to my everyday routine! Amazing ingredients I even use it on my doggie's little nose when we're out on adventures!
18/03/2021, By Kristin
I have to be honest it moisturises beautifully and seems to give good protection from the sun but it's way too oily for me. I can only use it on my face if I use it on my neck and chest the ends of my hair get super greasy so it's not for me but definitely has its benefits in other areas maybe if you're very dry?
14/03/2021, By Catherine
This product is very thick and left a white tinge to my face, it did work though.
14/03/2021, By Catherine
Very thick and I had a white tinge to my face after application - it does work though.
08/02/2021, By Marius
Although pricey, skin ingredients are safe
04/02/2021, By Inge
As woc I was apprehensive about using an spf this high and not looking washed out. I was impressed by the slip the product had, which made it easy spread across my face. It is now added to my essential list items. Hope in time they will have one with iron oxides to mitigate residual colour. It is still better than everything else I tried thus far. Also a bigger family sized tube would be a wonderful addition to the range!!
01/02/2021, By Nadia
Works well for me. It does have great coverage.
31/01/2021, By Kan
A lovely sunscreen. It leaves my face feeling soft and moisturised. As a person of colour, I struggle to find sunblocks that don't leave my skin with a white-blue tint but this one is really good,
26/01/2021, By Natalie
This is the best texture that I’ve found so far in a natural mineral sunscreen - doesn’t make me look nearly as bluey purple as others can. Just haven’t worn it in sun enough to know how effective it is but I’m hoping it will become my go-to daily SPF for my face!
06/01/2021, By Sabz
What an awesome sunscreen!
I was nervous about there being coconut oil inside; I remember coconut oil making me break out.
I've been using this sunscreen a while now and having no problem - I really like that it has a matte feel once applied.

Feels great on my skin, offers good protection and doesn't leave a super oily feeling.
27/10/2020, By Jess
Great Product
24/10/2020, By Oksana
Gives a slight grey cast to skin but overall works well
19/10/2020, By Bonang
I haven't been using this product for that long to sing its praises, but i feel it has good coverage,it just leaves my skin looking purple and it takes some tome for it to be absorbed into my skin.
17/10/2020, By AIMEE
I really like this product, it does what is needed, offers excellent protection! If I put on in the morning and spend all day in the garden I am fine. It does leave a slight light tint to the skin which might not work for everyone, but is the best of the natural sunscreens I have used (with exception of the extremely expensive ones which I save for my face). I am happy, again like the other reviewers a bigger tube would always be good :)
14/10/2020, By Christine
Love this product, no smell.
02/10/2020, By Theresa
Good product
30/09/2020, By Katlego
My sister recommend this to me and I got it a few weeks back,I love it
01/09/2020, By African goddess
The sunscreen has good ingredients but it has a greying effect making my skin look dull
04/08/2020, By Rushanah
So happy that it's a natural sunscreen. Works well for my skin. Good coverage. Pity it doesn't come in a bigger tube.
30/07/2020, By My
you only need a little bit! so it will last so long!
28/06/2020, By Claire
Our go-to sunscreen. Not too greasy. Applies evenly and doesn't stain clothes.
20/06/2020, By Michelle
Love that it's spf 40+. Works so well. Feels good on my skin. Blends well with my makeup, provided I don't use any oils on my face first, before applying. Become my only sunscreen now
16/03/2020, By Hayley
Love this sunscreen - great consistency, not runny and excessively oily like a few of the other natural brands and gave myself and my family good coverage:)
07/03/2020, By Malini
The best cruelty free sunscreen with a high spf
01/03/2020, By Sandy
It spreads easily and doesn't leave my skin looking that ghostly white. Works well but a bit pricey!
26/02/2020, By Stells
It's undoubtedly a good sunscreen but the price point isn't exactly family friendly.
24/01/2020, By Quest
Try it
16/01/2020, By Reynard
So glad it's all natural. A neccesity in South African sun. Works well.
15/01/2020, By Leah
Love that it's all natural and local. Nice smell too.
12/01/2020, By Mianca
This is such a good sunscreen! It applies so easily and smoothly. It also leaves no white or color marks on my skin. My skin always broke out when using other sunscreens but not this!
11/01/2020, By RAY
I have fair skin and need a sun cream that WORKS. And I don't want chemicals as harsh sun does funny things to chems and the human body of which I have one. Hence I purchased this product grudgingly due to the price but- I am glad as it is fully natural and does work! A happy customer here and I will order this again when my tube is empty.
15/11/2019, By Noleen
I use a high factor sunblock on my face every day of the year due to pigmentation. I am so pleased to have finally found a product that is not full of chemicals. Pity that it is so greasy though but its nothing that a little powder doesn't fix.
29/10/2019, By Shannon
I appreciate that it's all natural, but i find that it's really difficult to spread. Sometimes it also makes my face itch
28/10/2019, By Ashlee
I feel safe in using sun screen without any harmful ingredients.
09/10/2019, By Jennifer
I normally come back from a week at the coast scorched. After using Eli & You 40+. I was totally protected.
08/10/2019, By Tracy
Excellent protection with harsh sun exposure, lots of sweating and it stays on for hours. I love this product and the fact there are no harmful chemicals, which is proven because you can even use around your eyes with no burn. And it is locally made :)
05/10/2019, By Yve
FANTASTIC sunscreen ! We were exposed for a couple of days to the harsh sun in Zambia and this is definitely the best sun cream we have ever used :)
12/08/2019, By Dan
I purchased this sunscreen before working in Thailand for two months. Did scuba-diving every day and this sunscreen prevented my face from burning while on the boat. It was a bit oily but it didn't make me break-out even though I have oily skin. Left my skin feeling very soft. And the fact that I wasn't putting harsh chemicals onto my skin or into the ocean was GREAT! And it's a local product which is fantastic!
12/08/2019, By Gary
Best sun cream I have ever used. I do a lot of sports outdoors and in the ocean. Yes, it is a bit oily and thick but it is all natural and that is what I love and my skin as well. Can surf or kite for long sessions and don't get burned. The excellent quality zinc protects well and even has a great healing affect. If I start feeling I am getting a fever blister, I apply the sun cream and it stops. Also there is no after taste after I apply it on my lips and also does not burn my eyes once I am in the water. I wont use any other sun cream.
27/05/2019, By Marge
This is the 3rd tube I bought and still love it. If you don't like greasy then you will struggle with this. I've found that I just need to rub in properly until it settles, then it's not so bad. It protects well and it feels like it hydrates my skin as well. I do have very dry skin so I think that is why it works for me.
15/05/2019, By Tracy
I have been using this sunscreen for almost a year now and have to say it is the best sunscreen product I have ever used.
It's gentle on my skin and sun protection long lasting.
Great product! I will never use anything else if I can help it.
25/04/2019, By Getruida
This is an all round good sunscreen. It is a bit oily, pasty and leaves a white cast. But, it is a good sunscreen and I've not only been protected from the sun's harmful rays, my skin has improved so much while using this sunscreen. It barely has a smell and feels a bit oily on the skin. But in any case, a really good sunscreen. Love it!!!
22/04/2019, By Ru
Love this sunscreen. I'm on my third tube! Works really well for everyone in the family.
05/04/2019, By Kimmie
Works really well in that you don't get sun burnt (which is what it is supposed to do). However, I can not use it on my face as it burns and gives me a very itchy rash. It also dries out my skin.
11/01/2019, By Zonika
Oily, smelly and makes my skin itch.
03/01/2019, By Landé
Once it is on, it stays :) Kids are not too keen on the smell, but a good option for sun protection.
02/01/2019, By Rushanah
Would love this to have come in a bigger tube. Does provide full coverage but also takes a while to rub into skin.
30/12/2018, By Chantal
What a waste of money! All natural - great. But greasy, thick (you need to use a LOT) and smelly. Also, not convinced it did a great job of protecting our skin. Would not recommend to anyone.
30/12/2018, By Imogen
As a daily Sunscreen for the face it is quite greasy but at least not zinc-white . As far as natural sunscreens go, this has been my favourite; no problems, no drying no pore blocking. I've used the Bee Natural ones, sunumbra, pure beginnings, Moringa.
12/12/2018, By Kayleen
AMA-ZING! Great to apply prior to foundation application!
03/12/2018, By Arthur
I've been very happy with this product. Goes on easily and provides excellent protection for several hours.
20/11/2018, By Amanda
Great Sunscreen.
Leaves a bit of white on the face,very smooth texture but does a great job on protection.

Definitely recommend.
13/11/2018, By Steven
Works very well
09/11/2018, By Jennifer
It works like a charm. Obviously it being a natural product the first squirt might be a bit watery, but this isn't in ANY WAY a bad thing --- it just shows it's natural, which is what we want when we buy products with organic ingredients. People complaining about the "spreadability" of it don't know how natural products work. If you want liquid and easy to spread keep buying the chemically laden products. And even saying this, Eli&You sunscreen DOES actually spread quite nicely once you're used to it. The zinc in it makes it a bit thicker, which I actually prefer. My kids say it smells like licorice and I can definitely smell the herby smell of the moringa seed oil which might take a little bit of getting used to, but it doesn't give you that horrible chemical taste in the back of your throat like conventional sun-lotions if you get it onto your lips. I love that I know nothing toxic goes into our bloodstreams when applying it, especially when I have to apply it ever so often for school-going kids. That's what it's all about: peace of mind. A bit of a pity the tube is so small, but I have a sneaking suspicion it will last a while, even if using often.
09/11/2018, By Eco Farmer
An excellent really prevents sunburn and lasts the whole day. The only drawback is that it stays quite white..but it's the effectiveness that counts and so reassuring to know that it is not toxic to the body.the skin is a large surface area and sunscreens are absorbed to a certain degree.
21/09/2018, By Chantal
The consistency is really thick which makes it a bit harder to spread but it definitely works.
26/04/2018, By tara
protests my skin and smells great.
15/01/2018, By Anique
This product was my first introduction to natural sunscreen and I was a little apprehensive as to the effectiveness of it, but it really surprised me. I didn't get burnt once this December holiday, even with only one application and spending a few hours in the sun. You must mix the lotion up a bit by squishing the tube before opening, but once I did that the texture was great. There are two downsides for me; I really don't like the smell, and it left a white residue. But as a protector from the sun....excellent!
28/12/2017, By natasha
his product definitely works very well as I am fair skin and tan easily.I could tell how well it worked when I didn't apply correctly and was half sun burnt where product not applied.One small issue -when you first apply has a 'fishy' like smell but does disappear after the first few times.
29/08/2017, By Tanya
Found the consistency of the cream to be very thick and lumpy. Smell is pleasant but will try something else next time.
29/08/2017, By Andy
As an active runner, I needed to find a sunscreen is sweat-proof, as so many others that I've tried wash-off too easily. Eli and You's Organic Sunscreen sticks to your skin from the first application and provides fantastic protection against UVA and UVB rays. I would recommend this product to anyone who loves hitting the mountain trails on the weekend.
13/08/2017, By Mariëtte
Great product thanks. Really enjoy the organic product, free from any useless and dangerous chemicals. At last I found something that protects my skin and feed it at the same time. I dont get that dried out feeling on my skin like I do with the other sunscreen I tried.
06/08/2017, By Diane
I have been using Eli and you since my daughter was born 5 years ago, both kids are fair skinned and this worked like a charm. It goes on a bit sticky but then pulls into the skin nicely but because of that it is excellent in water! With such amazing ingredients you know it is good for your kids. Personally this has been my favourite sunscreen yet! I loved their other baby products too. Smelled amazing.
02/08/2017, By Mariëtte
I have used this wonderful sunscreen on my 3 kids and I love it. They stay protected even when they are in the pool as it stays on and is defenetly waterproof. We haven't had any sunburn since. The best part is that it doesn't burn their eyes so there is no struggle to put it on their faces. I love this thank you. I will recommend this to anyone with kids. Even granny love this.
10/06/2017, By Chloe
This is great in that it doesn't make you white but it is incredibly oily. I bought this because I stopped wearing makeup and so needed an SPF for my face, but it was too oily. I then took it no holiday with me and used it as an all over sunscreen and I would have to shower twice before it was completely gone. I never got burnt though.
