Did You Know? UVA rays pass easily through the ozone layer and make up the majority of our sun exposure. These are the rays that cause skin ageing and wrinkling. UVB rays are the rays that cause sunburns; some of these rays are absorbed by the ozone layer, but enough pass through to pose a risk to your skin; and your health. Both rays are associated with increased risk of skin cancer.

A little goes a long way.29/08/2020, By Brendaok27/08/2020, By Healthy BeanA thick and creamy product that definitely protects well. It doesn't wash off easily at all! However I will not purchase it again as my skin had an allergic reaction to it.26/08/2020, By KarabeloI want30/06/2020, By RouxThis has become and handbag essential for me, and a little goes a long way.03/04/2020, By Sarah-LeighIt feels quite thick and oily but seems to do the job. Just very expensive and when I bought it it was due to expire in about 6 months time Which was a bit cheeky30/03/2020, By WinnerThese olive products are superb01/03/2020, By PraveshThick and greasy, leaves a thick white layer on your skin that doesnt wash off easily. BUt we havent burnt when we have used it06/01/2020, By HelperBetter05/01/2020, By ShirlsAwful product. Thick, greasy and made my skin feel itchy and burny despite been a all natural product.31/12/2019, By MichelleLove this sunscreen. We were in the hot Karoo sun, and my daughter did not burn. Completely waterproof, because we were in the water, and you can see the water beads on her skin. 100%, love that its safe for all skin.27/12/2019, By HeidiThe perfect sunscreen for little bodies.27/11/2019, By ChellieLovely product25/11/2019, By shalla CMThis is great for the whole family11/11/2019, By KVery effective, my fair 3 year old has never burnt with this and its the only sunscreen we have ever used on her. Its fairly greasy and can stain but if rubbed in properly this is less likely.19/10/2019, By HeatherThe best natural sunscreen. Spreads easily and has a pleasant smell. Doesn’t irritate our toddlers sensitive skin.06/10/2019, By EricaLove the smell and it works great! Used for the whole family for a week in Mauritius. So glad it doesn’t damage coral.It's Not Too Bad. It's A Little Bit Greasy And Thick But One Of The Best Natural Sunscreens To Apply With:-)! But28/08/2019, By LuluIt's Not Too Bad. It's A Little Bit Greasy And Thick But One Of The Best Natural Sunscreens To Apply With:-)!21/08/2019, By ColleenI really really wanted to like this product. It is vegan, cruelty-free, reef friendly, non-nano mineral based sunscreen which can be hard to find. The packaging is very cute but the product needs some serious improvement before I would consider using it again. Hands down the greasiest sunscreen I have ever used, felt like applying vaseline. It is incredibly hard to get off your skin even with soap and water, ended up scraping some off with my fingernails. This sunscreen gets everywhere!! Ended up all over my dive mask when I was snorkelling. The product did however protect me from burning.18/08/2019, By OliveThis was the first natural sunscreen I have used, and it left me so frustrated and disappointed. I applied a generous amount on all the exposed areas before going for a hike, in August sun. Came home with a sunburn just after spending a couple hours out door. I have a normal skin, and generally don’t burn easily.01/07/2019, By MevaI have used a lot of different natural sun screens and this is one of the best. It is quite greasy but that makes it go on much better than most brands and doesn't leave a white film on your skin. Haven't been burned using it and it is reasonably priced.10/05/2019, By IreneLeaves my skin feeling nourished. Will buy again.18/03/2019, By VeganshmeganThis is a lovely soap. Foamy and exfoliating. Try it!17/03/2019, By JaneSeems to be a bit greasy and thick, not very pleasant smelling either but cannot really comment as I have not tested it yet15/03/2019, By tahmidaThis is good but not for everyday wear. It is oily, does not absorb well into skin. And leaves white creases in the folds of your skin like neck and eyelids. Also made me itchy in my chest area. They should change the base oil to something else besides coconut oil and should use a better emulsifier15/03/2019, By ClaireI have always used this sunscreen on my little boy. I'm not sure if anything has changed with how it's made or if my son is just getting more intense sun exposure now, but he ended up with his first sunburn at school (we apply at home and they reapply at school before going into the sun). Will be trying a new sunscreen.15/03/2019, By XtiThis sunscreen is very thick and greasy and it does not absorb in to the skin. I also noticed that after swimming there are big white patches on my body from the sunscreen. The moment i put it on i just wanted to wash it off. It might be great for a baby but not for someone who wants to look good in the sun. It is also to expensive for the amount of uses you will get from it if you are using it on an adult body.15/03/2019, By LBWThe sunscreen goes on easily but it’s very greasy. I find I need to use a lot each time for it to be effective so it gets used up quickly.15/03/2019, By DaniThis is a great option for natural sunscreen, it absorbs nicely and does the job well. I've used it several times on my 10 month old baby who has very fair skin and it's kept him protected from sunburn and is nicely water-resistant too. Would definitely recommend.15/03/2019, By CarolEffective sunscreen, quite rich and thick, which I like for my dry skin. Absorbs well.15/03/2019, By SafiyyahVery thick but a great product15/03/2019, By LeeVery good product. I love the fact that it does not absorb into your skin like most sunscreens do. Natural and effective!15/03/2019, By TracyGreat natural sunscreen - others I've tried have been difficult to apply. This goes on easily enough and doesn't leave a very white residue. Buying my 2nd tube now.15/03/2019, By BrendaWorks very well15/03/2019, By RuzanneThis has been my go-to for the past 3.5 years.
I just love and trust this product.
There is not much smell, which is great. It rubs in smoothly and evenly. Ingredients are simple yet efficient.15/03/2019, By LindaThe best natural kids sunscreen I have found. Doesn’t make my kids look like little ghosts when i put it on. It is thick, but very absorbent, and doesn’t make them look white . Will definitely stick with this one!15/03/2019, By AmyThis sunscreen works really well! Apart from the fact it’s a bit oily and can leave you looking a little white after applying it will definitely be my go to sunscreen from now on.15/03/2019, By MarselWe used it for whole family and it is great!
A spray might be easier to apply though.15/03/2019, By archiluluSuper gentle on the skin and so effective! Leaves your skin moisturized and well protected. Best part it, no harsh chemicals15/03/2019, By DeidreLove Oh-Lief products. It works and you support local business. I wait a couple of minutes after applying before I dress, just for it to be absorbed by the skin.15/03/2019, By ElizabethThis is the only CANSA approved mineral sunscreen I have been able to find and I am so pleased. It is thick, but is absorbed quickly. The grittiness of the zinc oxide takes some getting used to. It leaves a bit of a white residue if not rubbed in or if a thicker layer is applied. It protects well against the sun.15/03/2019, By LoveleenIt's a bit thick for my liking and I have to mix it with my light moisturiser well to get it on without leaving my skin looking coated.15/03/2019, By WendsMI found it very difficult in South Africa to get a reef safe sun screen. Being very fair skinned, burning easily and loving the outdoors I was a bit apprehensive trying a sun factor of only 30. On my recent trip to Egypt it worked fantastic, temps were up to 40 degrees, no burning and my skin felt great.
This is the only sunscreen I will now use.15/03/2019, By TashWorks well. Leaves a very slight purplish glow, as all zinc oxide products do. Smells alright.15/03/2019, By MajI love Oh-Lief, and the sunscreen does not disappoint.
I didn't not find it sticky.
It doesn't smell that nice though15/03/2019, By KarinWorst product ever (I posted a while back, but noticed it wasn't on-line - obviously only positive posts will appear!)15/03/2019, By LeeanneI have been using this sunblock for years and it is by far my favourite of all the sunblocks. Works very well and is super gentle on skin/eyes.15/03/2019, By BiancaThis was the only sunblock that didn't burn my babies' eyes. It is easier to spread when warmed a little in hands. Was on vacation the whole December and their faces didn't burn once.15/03/2019, By PetroI wish this product was a little gentlier on the pocket:-) Otherwise is it great - my little girl has never had a sunburn, or cried when the product got into her eyes. Will definitely recommend this to any parent!15/03/2019, By SarahBy far the best sunblock that can be used by the whole family. Would however like an option to buy larger volume.15/03/2019, By Mary LynneUse it on the whole family. Can be quite oily but works well15/03/2019, By LollyGreat!15/03/2019, By JackieGreat product and a good price for a natural sunscreen. Nice to know you can smother your skin to protect against the sun without any horrible toxins penetrating.15/03/2019, By Tracey JoyLeave a bit of a layer on the skin but keeps the rays at bay15/03/2019, By MareliThis is a very effective sunscreen, although I find it very greasy.15/03/2019, By DianaNot sure if I got a bad batch but did not work for me and got really burnt twice.15/03/2019, By TaniaThis works well, it did its job. It does leave a bit of a white film, but nothing serious. It doesn smell great unfortunately, but is effective against the sun.15/03/2019, By LuisaThis must be the most effective sunscreen I have tried and its fully natural, I am impressed! My Swedish-looking 18 month old, white-haired, blue-eyed with the palest skin, just survived a long summer on the beach and did not have once the slightest sign of red skin. Really great product!15/03/2019, By LeighI really like this sunscreen, even though it is a bit greasy. It works well and goes on easily15/03/2019, By MarietteThe sunscreen is quite thick and the tube burst open on first use, so now I cant carry it around.
It does absorb quite quickly though and is very effective.15/03/2019, By IngridLOVE the Oh Lief sunscreen products!15/03/2019, By ColleenLove this product. Bit thicker than the other suncreams I am used to, but I love it. Doesn leave a greasy feel and spreads easily.15/03/2019, By KarienAlthough I found this product to be effective in providing sun protection, it is really greasy. I used it on my kids (1 and 3) at the beach, and its a sand magnet - they were covered in sand from top to toe in no time and the sand/sun cream mixture just wouldn wipe off!15/03/2019, By AdeleEasy to apply, no white residue, moisturizing and effective protection. Love this sunscreen!
