I like detailed reviews so I'm going to be as detailed as possible. First off, I am early 50s...how did I get here so fast? And yes your skin does get saggy and crepy. I loved my grandmother but don't want to look like her yet. I take care of the inside and exercise, but still need some help. In waltzes Pacifica! I do not like SPF. THE SUN HEALS..GET SOME VITAMIN D. But this sunscreen is nonchemical. And I love lightly bronzed skin. ALOT of Pacifica products provide that lit from within look.....not like you are wearing a product but like you just glow. Now, this is NOT a bronzer. I am light skinned, and anything past light medium will be disappoinhted. (HEY PACIFICA DEVELOP THIS WITHOUT SPF AND FOR ALL SKIN COLORS) What this is...well it's skin perfection in an aerosol can. I mean it's shocking how great it makes my skin look. Takes away the crepiness, hides veins, freckles...y'all this stuff is fantastic. I let it dry and put the shimmer lotion on top and I glow with skin perfection . Wish there was some for face. Great job Pacifica! Now don't discontine it like you did the crushed pearl lotion and the bronzing lotion.

This would be perfect but ! ..... it's stains everything and rubs right off you ! I bought this for a day of tanning and pool side I put it on and it stained the bed I was tanning on and when I wrapped myself in a towel the towel was brown ! So if your naked not touching a thing then yes it works but as soon as you sit down it comes
Right off and transfers color everywhere. Pls make a new formula !

DO NOT BUY THIS! It stained and ruined a brand new swim suit and beach towel. It would not run in at all.
Great natural color, non greasy
Shelly from California
I'm surprised how much I like this. Applying this is a bit high maintenance - I use a body sponge so it's even and I don't stain my hands. Once it dries, I had no issue with it staining clothes nor streaking. It dries matte and isn't greasy at all. I didn't reapply it because it's too difficult in public or I'd feel stupid using a sponge, so it's more of a base to get some color (I reapply a sheer sunblock on top later if needed, but it protected me for several hours alone). The best part is how natural the color is. I have fair skin with gold-green undertones and this takes the edge off without looking orange on me. My skin is a bit sensitive and I've had no irritation with this either.
Great bronzing affect!

Great bronzing affect, but be careful not to use too much or it gets on EVERYTHING!
Gotch from Sacramento, Ca
This works well, it protects your skin while immediately giving a nice bronze glow.
nikki72386 from undisclosed
Omg this spray smells soo good! Plus it leaves a wonderful bronzed glow where it has been sprayed. I've used it a few times this summer and have not gotten burned and my sun rash hasn't developed.
Stains everything, If you sweat you get streaks
Still searching for a good nontoxic spf from Los Angeles
Got home and had streaks of sweat stain going across my chest. Brown marks all over my bathing suit. Still got a nasty burn and i wasnt out very long.

I really like this face sun screen. Its not too oily and feels good on my skin. The protection is good and doesnt make me break out.
no burns but too bronze
kelss7 from undisclosed
I wanted to love this product. I burn easily and rarely get a bronze tan so this was a perfect way to fake it til I make it. Unfortunately the bronzer just looked like I rubbed too dark foundation on my legs. It rubbed on everything too. No burns though!
Tara K from Columbus, OH
This is by-far the best sunscreen I have ever used. It smells like summer, gives your skin a nice bronzed glow (tip > put on before your swimsuit) The mister is lovely & applies evenly and easy, stays on for hours, even in the water (for me). Can't recommend this product enough!!
Rikki from Alabama
I usually love Pacifica products, but wow what a disappointment. It sprays on as this muddy brown color and does not spray evenly no matter how long you shake it or how far away you spray it from you. You have to rub it in and it doesn't even protect you from the sun. It felt like my skin was burning the entire time I was tanning. Also never fully dries and gets all over everything. My bikini and towel have brown marks EVERYWHERE. Even the smell wasn't a redemption. It smells like play-doh, not like coconut. Probably the biggest waste of money, and I'm pretty mad that it ruined my bathing suit. Yeah, toss this in the trash.
Amazing SPF coverage for pale people!
ECBinmi from Michigan
The SPF factor is amazing! One of the only sunscreen producta I've used that actually works on my ginger self! The only con is the product has to be rubbed in, like any other spray on sunscreen, and leaves a film on anything that you touch. My rafy has a permanent film on it.
Would give 0 stars if I could

Stains and ruins EVERYTHING.

I do like it but...

I absolutely love this sunscreen! It makes my skin look so pretty in the sun! The only thing i reccomend is putting it on and letting it dry completely before you suit up because it did stain my swimsuit
Great product for you and the environment!
mangosunshineee from undisclosed
First off, Pacifica is my favorite brand. Their sunscreen does not have any toxic materials so it wont harm the environment if it washes off, and on top of that, it stays on for at least an hour after you apply it. I bought the bronzing version on accident because I didnt read the label, but it seems to work okay I guess. It definitely protects me from the sun but I havent noticed any bronzing effect, not that Im worried about it because I already have pretty tan skin. Overall, this is an amazing product and people always ask me what kind of sunscreen I used because it smells amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Will not buy this again
J from Florida
As I said above, while it sprays easily and covers evenly, thats about where the pros end. It didn't smell that great, and it turned everything it touched brown. I ended up burning because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of reapplying this stuff!
M from Massachusetts
I worry about endocrine disruption from chemical sunscreens, so I always use mineral formulas. However, I'm already pale and the mineral sunscreens make me glow bluish/white. Not the warm summer look I want. But, tinted mineral screens tend to make me look orange or yellow which is not flattering (on me) either. Like many extremely pale girls my complextion flaws are also problematic, so I usually wear a mineral powder foundation to buff them out.
When I wear this sunscreen, I don't need a foundation at all. The tint makes my skin look warm and sunkissed/tan without any fake orange. It quickly dries 'matte' (not greasy at all) but also slightly glowy. Some greasy products slip and slide sinking into fine lines which makes me look older, but this formula maintains a flawless look for hours. It's like a lovely airbrush. If I'm ambitious, I add mascara, lipgloss and a hint of blush and I'm summer perfection.
One warning. I never "spray" this on. I spray it into my hand and rub it on as if I squeezed it from a tube. It is best done before getting dressed. Give it a minute to 'set' before putting on your clothes. It does stay put for the most part. However, if you are wearing white you may find some smuding on your clothing. All makeup rubs a bit onto white! You are basically putting makeup (that is also UV protection) on your body with this product. This is true of every tinted sunscreen I have ever used. I don't blame Pacifica for this because I can't imagine how this would be avoided. A little oxygen stain remover removes the occassional smudge from my whites.
Has a tint that stains

Had I known there was a tint to it, I never would have purchased it. It's all over everything.
Rubs off everywhere.

I really enjoy most Pacifica products. If you dont rub it in just right you just look dirty. It rubs off all over everything: swimsuit, house, car seat, pool tiles, paddle board. It does seem to wash out of clothing.
Adds Some Color!
Leary from NY
Was perfect for adding a little bronzing to my skin, so that I am not super fair in teh sun. It was a little dark upon application and rubbed off on my clothes, but I don't know if I just didn't let it dry enough.
Like makeup for your body
Bryn from Florida
Apply and let dry before dressing!! Covers flaws. Will repurchase.
Waste of my money
Scorp79 from Indian head, md
Doesn't dry, streaks horribly, rubs off on clothes, furniture, the toilet seat! doesn't smell good either.
jessicablairl from undisclosed
I purchased this because I liked the idea of spf protection and keeping a tan. The pros is that is can is easy to apply as it sprays on gently. The con however is that I am disappointed the formulas bronze comes off on clothing...my assumption was that this product would be similar to St. Tropez but I confused if I just purchased a makeup with spf when I wanted to purchase an spf with tanning.
Put on and let dry BEFORE dressing
Kaitlin from Florida
OK I learned to put it on and let dry before putting on a white suit. Bleach took it out. But worked great for FL sun and fishing. Didn't come off swimming. Spray on your hand and rub in. Works better, but you can see where you missed so less burning from missed spots.
