I love recommending this product to people who love that fresh clean just washed feeling. Being that this is a gel it is super light weight and absorbs quickly. Also, this is great for all ethnicities because there is NO white cast left behind. This is summer must have!


I think this is everybody's favorite now because of summer season. One of the products I first purchased here. This is a perfect sunscreen to wear under makeup, very light and fresh and it has everything you wish in a sunscreen.


Offers great protection without leaving any residue and it is really lightweight. Usually when I use certain sunscreens I end up breaking out on my face since they’re so heavy, but not this one.


I have oily skin in the T-zone area and dry skin on the cheeks. I have purchased this twice. Using this right now because we are having a heatwave here. Its lightweight and gives me great protection where my mask doesnt cover my skin, during this pandemic. I also use the Apieu spf but I prefer this one.


Which A'Pieu sunscreen would you compare this to? I have both the gel and the cream but end up using the gel more often in the summer.


Hi Tracy! I have both gel and cream. I am using the cream becuase the gel is for more waterproof (I think). I cant compare this to the Apieu. I would compare this to the Biore Watery spf. But this Earth's recipe feels more nourishing whereas Biore has alcohol in it. Not a big deal unless super sensitive skin.


Thanks, Milly! That helps a lot. :)


It doesn't feel like sunscreen at all! It goes on TOTALLY clear and it doesn't feel thick, greasy....NOTHING! And you're still getting spf 50! This is my new go to for the weekend!


I HIGHLY recommend this sunscreen! Where most sunscreens leave you feeling sticky and sheeny, this Waterful Sun Gel leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to go into my day. Honestly this product feels more like a moisturizer in application, leaving my skin hydrated and causing zero struggles when it comes to applying makeup. Not only is it an efficient defender of your skin, but it will leave you feeling radiant and fresh!


You heard it here first. Gone are the days of White cracked , flaky or streaky Zombie looking Sunscreen Monster Face.

Yes to weightless sun protection. Totally worth every penny and if they make a bigger size I will purchase it. This one is a great purse size!
