Works really well, easily applied. Its a zinc based sunscreen so it'll take a little while to sink or rub in....you wanted sun protection right? Don't worry about the potential white smudges left on your skin uou will be wayyyyy happier knowing you dont get any sun burn at the end of the day. Great sun protection. We are a fair family, zero sun burn with this stick. Also, really great on the face, most sunscreens give me little bumps on my face, this one does not. Win.
