Reviews & Questions
Essential-C Sun Balm 5 5Smells and works great! This orange-scented SPF stick was great to have around for both myself and my rambunctious 2 year old. The sun protection was decent (no burns!) but I wouldn't recommend using this under your makeup, as it is quite greasy. I've used other sun sticks before with similar results. The Murad version seemed more natural, compared to the coconut 'flavor' I usually pick up at the local drug store. August 29, 2014Efficient and Easy Protection I am always on the go, this SPF has become my life saver! I carry it in my purse and have come to depend on it for quick, easy, and dependable protection! It is light, non-greasy, and goes on easily. My husband and kids have even used it! July 25, 2014Perfect for my purse With a 2-year old and another on the way I don't always remember to pack EVERYTHING I need for the day. I can keep this sunblock in my purse and use it for both my daughter and I when we unexpectedly find ourselves at the park on a sunny day. I love the texture, it really glides on smoothly and doesn't leave any of that white residue (it's totally translucent) which is perfect so I don't need a mirror to apply to my face. And it's great for the backs of my hands when I'm driving! Also, since it's a stick you don't have to worry about the top opening unexpectedly and leaving goop all over your purse. This has been an excellent addition to my sunblock arsenal! July 2, 2014toss this spf in your purse and go! I've become increasingly concerned with the amount of sun exposure i get to/from work and when running errands and such. I carry this SPF in my purse and apply under my eyes and to the back of my hands before i start driving. It has a great texture and does not leave my skin feeling greasy. The size and easy application of this SPF make it the perfect addition to your on-the-go essentials. June 30, 2014
