It is very chalky. Yes, the zinc offers protection. You could also wear a face of diaper rash cream and have protection from the zinc oxide.

I would rather wear a cosmetically elegant zinc oxide sunscreen.

I like Paula's Choice, but there is other good choices available.

Paula's Choice is available online only.

Shipping is from the US. She does offer samples.

Here is my review.

I disagree that nano particles are unhealthy.

This is a statement from Cancer society - Australia

Thanks khaleesi, in the U.S. website, it doesn't mention if it is nano.

I'll use zinc oxide cream (for babies/diaper rash) on my face and neck sometimes when I'm lake swimming. It's pretty awful though- thick and gooey and it will stain your cloths. It's really good protection with 40 percent zinc and it's waterproof. Other than that I use a good euro sunscreen- zinc just doesn't provide enough UVA protection for me in normal spf concentrations.
