Although a bit difficult to spread, I use this every day on my arms and hands. Because of the zinc, it's very soothing. It's moisturizing too, without being real shiny/greasy. There is a very slight, natural scent from the ingredients (not added), but it's quite mild. It does dry mostly clear. If the zinc begins to collect in the crease of your arm, showing a white line, just rub it in lightly. I've tried a ton of sunscreens - both chemical and physical, natural and not. This is the best natural, non-toxic sunscreen I've ever used. When I think of how much product is needed to cover both arms, I'm grateful that I now have a this wonderful product instead of a toxic product or a product that I really don't like. I don't spend lots of time outdoors. If you do, be sure to reapply according to the recommendations provided.
