!Product requires reading! You must apply multiple layers to achieve high coverage; one application is not enough for strong sun. As you can see by reading the comments below, many people did not read the instructions. Like many natural products, it is not idiot-proofed.

As someone who works outdoors, and is exposed to the sun for long periods of time during the day, I have found this to be one of the most effective suncreams on the market. Not to mention it smells great and spreads well, it is thicker than most creams, but the fact that it is made with all natural ingredients makes up for it, and I would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys long periods of time spent in nature ant the sun.

It’s actually a really good sunscreen compared to the chemical sunscreens on the market. I bought this for my baby since it’s herbal and it’s actually wonderful but it does have a bit of herbal smell to it and becomes little cakey sometimes when applying but overall it’s great for babies!

nice to apply but the protection is only +/- 15 SPF, which I didn't pick up when I ordered it as the title of the product is then very misleading

It's not a high SPF but perfect for runs in the sun. It needs to be re-applied after swimming and if out in the sun for longer periods of time.

Offers great protection against the sun. No sweating once applied. Dries immediately.

Love the smell and the soft non greasy feel of it on my skin. I would just reapply regularly to make sure I am protected throughout the day. The great thing with this product is the non greasiness of it makes it easier to want to actually reapply ????

Big fan!

This is one of the only sunscreen brands that does make me break out in hives.

Didn’t realise this is only SPF 15 as was in the small print and burned terribly wearing this on a 2 hours walk outside. I didn’t know I could burn so much because I usually use another brand that I only have to reapply after maybe 4 hours. Don’t use on kids!!!

A favourite! Just needs to be reapplied throughout the day.

Really,really low protection, please check the SPF COVER, Very low.

It feels good on skin and easy to apply

You need to apply A LOT, A LOT for cover.

I have been using this as my facial day cream for the past week and I am very happy with it :-) I smell the lavender when I apply it (which I love) and it has a nice light consistency. The cream is beige in colour but it doesn't tint your skin and sinks in nicely. I decanted mine into a pump bottle which works better for me. A little goes a long way.

Like all Gaia products, perfect!

We used up a whole bottle now and will order again. It is not absorbed immediately but the tea tree oil is really healthy for the skin, we like the smell when we apply it (but it ceases).
It is not the highest UV protection. You should not be in direct sunlight anyways a very long time but must be reapplied if the sun is very strong.

Received this as a sample and hand been using it after moisturizer before foundation and absolutely love it. Easy to apply. No oily residue
Will keep on using
