Hello,

I have been using this sunblock for one month. I love it
It has no strong smell, which is very important for me, it sinks into the skin and it is not greasy or oily.
Most important it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I couldn't find a good sunscreen for a while and I am very happy to discover this product.

My skin has tendency to get a little oily during a summer and this sunblock works for me. As I said before this product doesn't make my skin greasy or oily. I don't know if this product will work well for someone with a very oily skin.

This is a good sunscreen, but I can no get the PA on the bottle. Is there anyone who know about it? I just know that it is just SPF30, so I only apply it when I would go out for only half a day.
This is not oil, because after applying it, I can wash my hand clearly only with water.

This sunblock is good, but it's still so hard to apply evenly.
I'm just wondering that, is this sunblock should be removed by makeup remover? Because each time after I applied on my face, I went to wash my hands, and the sunblock was so easy to be washed off....not like any other sunblocks.

I take it off with Cellcosmet cream cleanser without any problems.

I think this could be washed off even by normal soap or cleanser....I always feel this sunblock like a mask, so heavy.....

Saisai, can you elaborate on what exactly you didn't like about this product, please?
I am still using it and I like it very much. I tried Shiseido sunblock, but my skin broke out with hives after I applied it.

I'd also like to hear more about why saisai doesn't like the sunscreen. Just saying one doesn't like something is not helpful at all.

That means it will make your face incredibly white?

Is micronized zinc and titanium the safe particle size? I read an article once about this, but couldn't remember if they were recommending micronized or warning against it.

Are Nanoscale ingredients in personal care products safe?

Some personal care products may contain nanoscale particles of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that are used as active ingredients in sunscreen products and have been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1999. These nanoscale particles have been developed by breaking down larger particles during the manufacturing process. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide have been extensively evaluated and the scientific data shows that they do not penetrate the skin.

The FDA has recognized that the science and applications of nanotechnology are developing at a very rapid pace, and that properties relevant to product safety and effectiveness may change as size varies with the nanoscale, adding additional complexity to the review of products containing nanotechnology materials. In August 2006, the FDA formed a Nanotechnology Task Force to determine regulatory approaches that encourage the continued development of innovative, safe and effective FDA-regulated products that use nanotechnology materials. In July 2007, the Task Force issued a report on the use of such materials. The report, which was endorsed by the FDA Commissioner, stated that "the current science does not support a finding that classes of products with nanoscale materials necessarily present greater safety concerns than classes of products without nanoscale materials," and concluded that there is no need for products containing nanoscale materials to be labeled as such.

I have used this sunscreen as well as Sofina and Shiseido and I have to say that although it goes on smooth, it does tend to leave a white cast on my face and leave it a bit oily. I much prefer my Shiseido sunscreen. Perhaps next time I will try the DDF Matte formulation to see if its any different.

DDF Organic Sun Protection is a great sunblock but also so much more. It has anti-oxidants and comes in a moisturizing base (won't need a moisturizer).

The DDF Organic Sunprotection spf 30 has been discontinued. I was wanting to try it and emailed the company and they said it has been discontinued.
