Always happy when a product does what it says. Bought this b/c i don’t like putting 1000 chemicals on my daughter. This protects my fair skinned child from facial sunburn. A stick is nice b/c it limits the chance of poking eyes and sunscreen in eyes. My 3 year old is extremely sensitive with her eyes.
This is a game changer for me. I use this essentially as my foundation, being as i don’t wear much makeup other than concealer. If you are super white this will work well for you. I got so many compliments when i started using this on my face, it doesn’t clog my pores but it does give me a nice smoothed out look. People kept asking me why i am glowing.
Super thick and hard to put on. Defeats the purpose of a stick because i have to put some on my hands and rub it in anyway. It’s very thick so takes a long time to rub in and my kid still looks white from it. But over all good protection and love the fact it doesn’t have all those bad chemicals and fragrance in it.
Does leave a slightly white residue, but come on people. That’s just part of the protection included in zinc products, so review according to function and not how it compromises your vanity.
We have used several brands of face sticks and sunscreen, and we liked this one. It’s a good product but not perfect. The product has fewer questionable chemicals than the traditional face stick, which is great, and worked well. It also has a nice texture and does not smell. Some of the low chemical sunscreens we have tried smelled awful and had greasy or gritty textures. I only gave it four stars because (due to the zinc) you do need to smooth it out with your fingers after applying to get rid of white streaks. It’s fine for the kids but grownups might not care for that.
My daughter is red headed and has porcelain skin. Most sunscreens have a tendency to burn her eyes and no matter how often i reapply she gets terribly red underneath her eyes. Usually i have to hold her down to apply the sunscreen, but she had no problem with me requesting to reapply because it was easy and didn’t burn. The sunscreen does apply white, but that is because it is zinc based which is completely normal and quite frankly i don’t mind because i can tell if i’ve missed a spot. Great product and i highly recommend.

Love this product and it is hard to find where i live. It is highly recommended by the ewg sunscreen guide every may when the guide is released. I have had pre cancer areas removed from my face so a good sunscreen is a must for me. This is easy to use and to carry with you to reapply throughout the day. You do have to spread it over the area until the white disappears but that is no big deal to do.
This is my go to sunscreen for my face for myself and my three kids. I love how it is a total block. I have melasma and get dark spots, especially on my forehead, but not when i use this face stick. I keep a couple of tubes in different places so i can always have some near. It is white, but can be rubbed in pretty well. There is a pale look after applying, but it is well worth it for the peace of mind knowing that it works as soon as it is applied.
I love badger sunscreen lotion. However, this has a not so subtle smell of stale peanuts, which i assume is from the cacao butter. So, i’m going to try the tangerine one for my four year old. In the meantime i’ll keep using the badger sunscreen lotions which i love.
Works great, my boyfriend and i are out in the waters of hawaii almost everyday. Leaves your skin white if you don’t spend the time to work it in, my boyfriend doesn’t mind having a white zinc face :).
I absolutely love this sticka friend recommended this product to me and i was a little hesitant because most stick sunscreens are very thick and pasty. Making it very hard to spread it out and leaves a stripes of white everywhere. When first opening the stick i tried it on my forearm and i was pleasantly surprised with how easily it spread and how soft it left my skin. More importantly when i tried this on my 2 year old i was able to apply it before she had a chance to run away. I’m very happy with it and keep it in my purse for those sunscreen emergencies.
I love the fact that it is all natural and organic, especially since it goes right on my face. It feels good when it goes on, doesn’t leave a sticky residue and has no weird aroma. And most important—my skin really feels protected. Even with the zinc oxide, it doesn’t leave your skin looking white if you rub it in well. I will be purchasing badger again and again.
I am tired of the dermatologist scolding me and freezing spots off my nose. However, i can’t stand sunscreen and am wary of slathering a chemical stew all over. This stick enables me to target the danger zones, my nose and cheek area under my sunglasses. It is non-nano, so that’s another thing you don’t have to worry about. I have a stick that does not leave the white film, but this one works much better, effectively blocking any tanning where i apply it. It’s really remarkable how it has kept my face lighter in sunny sw florida.
Virtually scentless (very subtle sweet smell)clean semi-chalky application. I recommend this product for summer urban walking, hiking and the ski-slope. It’s lighter to pack for hikers (like myself) than a bottle of sunblock easily popped into a pocket. The stick applicator is handy and well designed – with a twist to push design (similar to deodorant sticks). Much less sloppy than lotion sunblocks. I have found no short comings with the badger face stick. Handy easy to use sun protection.
As long as you are aware that by buying an all-natural sunscreen for sport use that you’ll get that ‘whitening effect’ when you apply it heavily, you’ll be happy with this clean product. I buy this product specifically because of the high quality ingredients: the active agents are natural, not synthetic, and are generally thought to be safer for the body according to the the environmental working group.
