This sunscreen is from Aveeno's newest line, Active Naturals. You can purchase this at most drugstores such as Target, Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, etc. It retails at $10.99USD but do check your local ads for coupons and weekly sales.
The sunblock comes in a sturdy plastic tube with a clear plastic top. It is very convenient to pack in your suitcases during travel. After you flip the lid open, gently squeeze out enough lotion to cover your entire face and neck. The dispenser provides just enough product. I love the packaging because the lid is tight enough to prevent accidental spills.
Hydrosport sunblock lotion is designed to be sweatproof, waterproof, non-greasy, and lightweight. There are 5 active sunscreen ingredients to help protect you from the UV rays. This is a great sunscreen to use when you are active outdoors.
The ingredients list does include dimethicone for those of you who are allergic. I personally would like to see a reduction of BHT usage as well.
The texture of this sunscreen is very light weight. It is not a runny liquid like Shiseido, Clarins, or La Mer's sunscreen. Hydrosport Sunblock Lotion is a cross between a cream and liquid that spreads very easily on the skin. It does have the typical sunscreen fragrance that does not fully dissipate after application.
This sunblock dries nearly instantly on my skin. It is not sticky and does not feel heavy. Every time I use this, I always forget that I have sunscreen on because it is so comfortable. This is also oil-free.
I first used this as a test trial during my 10K walk for March of Babies back in May. I can attest to the water resistant claim because at no time during the walk did I find sunscreen dripping down my face. This product did not break me out either, which is a miracle considering how sensitive I am to other sunscreens. Since the product is water resistant, I highly recommend using a proper makeup remover/oil base cleanser. Otherwise, any waterproof sunscreen with clog your pores from left-over residue.
Overall, Aveeno Hydrosport Sunblock Lotion is a great product that is light-weight, waterproof, and sweatproof. I have combination skin so it dries fine on my face without makeup. However, if I use this as a base before makeup, it does accentuate dry patches if I don't use moisturizer. For those who have dry/very dry skin, please be aware of this and moisturize well before putting on makeup. Those with oily skin should have no issues with this sunblock lotion.
Bottom Line: I recommend checking out Aveeno Hydrosport Sunblock Lotion SPF 85 from your local drugstore aisles. It is an affordable, comfortable, and oil-free sunscreen for those with sensitive skin. There are always coupons/sales from your local ads and on Aveeno's website.
