Has successfully reduced the need for liquid nitrogen treatments at annual dermatologists appt from 1- dozen to 2 or 3.
Pros: Ease of use, no sticky or other unpleasant feel
This is the best body sunscreen; very effective in high altitude and hours of surfing. It is very water and sweat resistant.
Pros: It has a great feel on the skin not drying. Works really well in all extreme conditions. I had done extensive research and have used this product for 4 years, it is the best product I have found.
Cons: This is not for the face, it will burn eyes. The bottle design is bad, to get to about a quarter of the product you must cut the bottle in half, really.

I have been using Solbar 50 for at least 20 years. My dermatogist recomended it and I have used it ever since. Along with protecting me from the sun, it has moisture that works better than many very expensive creams I have tried.
Pros: I like the texture on my skin. It is very smooth and does not make my skin feel tight.
