This product is fantastic for anyone who does not like lotion on their face. I apply this before I run outside because regular sunblock drips in my face once I swear. I can easily run 6 miles and this will stay on my face whether I swear or not.…

Works great. Provides sun protection without having to slather greasy sunscreen all over. Is small and compact and fits easily in purse. When you move it to open the powder comes out without issue. I have very sensitive skin along with multiple allergies to skin care products and have no reaction to this.

BOB KIDS can be used anywhere on the body, but is especially good (and intended for) on face, neck, arms, hands, top of head and top of feet! It may take a while to cover the whole body of a squirmy toddler, but it definitely works.

Works great on the face

THE BEST sunscreen ever invented...

…My daughter plays softball and this gives fantastic coverage for her face and does not run into her eyes which was a huge problem for us.

Does it feel light weight on face? Does it apply evenly with blush? What size is this sunscreen?

Yes. It's a very light powder that you can't even feel on your face. It applies very evenly and is transparent. I think it's a 30 SPF. This is our favorite sunscreen for our faces and especially our kids.

Is this only for women?

No! It's translucent. My entire family uses it, my husband included. It's also great for babies and kids, especially on their face. You don't have to worry about getting the sunscreen in their eyes.

How much coverage does this have? Is is too much like "make-up" for men to use?

Hi there, thank you for your message! On The Go is a unisex product designed to give the skin a very natural look. You will obtain higher 'make-up looking' coverage only if you apply 2-3 layers to the skin but, if you apply only one, you will achieve effective sun protection without the 'make-up' effect. Quite a few of our customers are men who use On The Go on the exposed areas of their face and their head, and they love it! Please let us know if this helps and if you have any questions. The Au Natural Team.

Good choice for protecting face from sun

I love being able to brush this over my face when I have makeup on because it doesn't mess up my makeup- in fact, it's even a little mattifying!…

Awesome way to sunblock without having to goop up your face!

how long will this last me if I wear this everyday on my face (twice a day)?

I'm not sure. This is not my primary face SPF. I use Retinal skin care products, so I have to use a really good sunscreen on my face. I only use the Mineral Powder SPF 30 sunscreen to top up over makeup when I'm at an outdoor event.

Is this product mostly for head and neck, or do people use it all over their bodies?

I would say primarily face and neck.

awesome sunblock, did not cause any breakouts on face either!!!

awesome sunblock for your face/neck/eyelids/ears...did not cause me to break out and gave me a nice bit of glowing color (i bought in TAN).…This is a great product and I highly recommend....your makeup alone won't protect your face all day long, this will work as long as you reapply (as directed) I did not get burned even while at the beach all day on vacation.

Nice idea for the face.

This product is easy to use and, if applied corrrectly, does help on my face, which is normally under a hat. …Applied heavily it looks like you are wearing matte face powder.…

…Perfect for my 3 year old that hates sunscreen on his face.…

Does this product give good protection on tattoos?

I don’t know. I only used it on my face.

How can you choose the right color according to my skin shade?

I'm not sure whether you can choose the shade or not. I bought it to protect my face from the sun. I have brown skin. I bought the right shade from bare minerals.

Perfect non-greasy SPF for the face

I love this product. It applies easily, works great, and does not clog my pores. It is compact and comes with a small mirror on the top of the cap; making it perfect for the purse or gym bag. My children like it as well because it does not burn their eyes when they sweat or get wet.

Love this! Will not go back to gooey sunscreen EVER

…Plus that makes a very even coverage for my face.…

Does this product provide BOTH UVA and UVB protection?

I believe it does. It's very light and you don't get the irritation that cream sunscreen can cause when used on your face.

Has anyone used the translucent on their scalp as a sunscreen?

It's recommended by the company for use on the scalp, as well as the face and body. Great for babies and small children too since it doesn't burn the eyes and is super easy to apply.

works!

…I hated the applicator...it's a sponge..it made my face look very powdery...soooo, I simply poured this stuff into the bare minerals applicator and it works great!…

For faces only

BOB KIDS can be used anywhere on the body, but is especially good (and intended for) on face, neck, arms, hands, top of head and top of feet! It may take a while to cover the whole body of a squirmy toddler, but it definitely works.

Is this for faces only?

I’m sure you can use it other places but I think it would just take a while and use a lot of product to apply. We love it for our face and I’ll do the top of the kids shoulders or chest as a touch up when reapplying but I wouldn’t say it’s ideal for doing a full body application.

Will this work at the pool with water? It says water resistant for 80 min but I wasn’t sure if anyone has tried the pool or beach.

We tried it but reapplied every hour or so, or every time our kids dried themselves (that mainly when the powder is removed from face, not while swimming or playing in water). We decided to use this on 70-85F days..hotter than that, we would use more thicker lyered liquid sunscreens

Is the brush softer or firmer? My current brand is too firm, it makes my face red and takes off some makeup

It’s pretty soft

How does this compare to more expensive spf powders

It is great! My dermatologist recommended it. I use a tinted sunscreen, then brush this on as added protection. It gives my face a nice glow and a finished look.

Pale is the new tan.

…Great and easy way to reapply without getting my face greasy or oily.

Soft brush that doesn’t leave bristles all over your face

I like this powder sunscreen. I’ve tried many others and the brush is by far softer and gentler than even more expensive brands. I haven’t had any issues whatsoever with it leaking out in my purse. It’s hard to tell the sun protection. It seems to be ok.…

Great for kids and for faces

Perfect! Use it on my kids so their hair doesn’t get all greasy every time we use sunscreen. Wish it was water proof like Colorscience.

do you clean the brush in between applications and if so how? if not do you get bad break outs from a dirty brush?

I haven't had any breakouts at all but the brush isn't really dirty. I make sure that my face is clean and dry and have not used this over make up as my primer and foundation both have sun protection. I only use this on bare skin and my daughter's bare skin. If you feel the brush needs to be cleaned, I would use a good quality brush cleaner. I recommend Mary Kay Cosmetics brush cleaner, it is top quality! Hope this helps!

Can men use it? Or is it too ‘make up’ looking. Was looking for something to take the shine away from a shiny sunscreen.

This powder is a very lightweight powder. It’s not noticeable at all, It does not replace a woman’s cover up or foundation. It will take away shine. So I think it would be fine for a man to use. I like it because I don’t like the smell of sunscreen and this is odorless..If you swim it would need to be reapplied. Also it’s only meant for face and neck, it’s not a full body sunscreen. I use it daily for protection from the harsh Arizona sun. I say give it a try!

Incorporating a moisturizer into your daily beauty routine is essential for keeping your skin smooth, soft, and young-looking. But it's just as important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF—exposing your skin to the sun's harmful UVA/UVB rays can wreak havoc on your complexion, causing wrinkles, dark spots, and other premature signs of aging. Here, we've rounded up a list of the best SPF moisturizers we could find. These hybrid creams combine the skin-nourishing benefits of a moisturizer with the sun-shielding ingredients of sunscreen to provide you with all-in-one aging protection in just one bottle.
It can be really tough to find the right facial sunscreen. Many face sunscreens out there are too goopy and thick, leaving you with a pasty white complexion and patches of white cream everywhere. Not a great look. Others don't have a high enough SPF (note to self: SPF 15 just ain't enough for regular everyday use, especially if you'll be outdoors for long periods of time). And still, other sunscreens can cause acne, inflammation, or other skin irritations to crop up (yikes). With that said, there are some game-changer sunscreens that glide on smoothly and easily and won't make your skin look like a pale, ruddy mess. The sunscreens on this list are weightless, moisturizing, and strong enough to protect your skin from damage-causing UV rays, all day long.
If you spend time outdoors swimming, running, or biking, you need a reliable sport sunscreen to keep pace. Here are the best sport sunscreens.
In the world of beauty products, there’s perhaps no category more saturated than the anti-aging market. Serums and eye creams and lotions galore promise to do everything from smooth fine lines to fade dark spots to restore our youthful glow of years past. And sometimes those promises are more, shall we say, unrealistic hopes rather than truly possible achievements. So who better to help weed through all the youth-boosting lotions and potions out there than dermatologists? After all, they have access to anything and everything, and know first-hand what does and doesn’t work. That’s why we decided to ask top derms to share the anti-aging products they actually use on themselves. As in, the stuff that’s in their medicine cabinets and is going on their skin daily. While the picks were varied—don’t worry, we’ll get to those—the overarching theme was that it’s best to take a three-pronged anti-aging approach. One, prevention products—that means sunscreen, of course, plus antioxidants such as vitamin C and E to ward off signs of aging in the first place. Two, hydration, a mainstay of any skincare routine, but particularly important for anti-aging purposes. And finally, treatment, where you bring in anti-aging workhorse ingredients; retinoids, growth factors, and peptides repeatedly came up when we spoke with these skincare experts. So without further ado, check out the best anti-aging products that dermatologists rely on, the ones you can feel confident will actually deliver on their promises.
