While not specifically made for use on the face, this sunscreen is the only thing I put on my face when when exercising outdoors in the warm weather. I can put it on my eyelids and right under my eyes (although of course, like any sunscreen, avoid getting in your eyes), and it doesn't melt and sting my eyes, even during excessive sweating (i.e., exercising outdoors in 90+ degree weather). It doesn't sting my face, doesn't feel overly heavy, and once it soaks in, doesn't feel greasy. Since it uses physical blocks instead of chemicals, I'm assuming this is why there is no sting or melting in my eyes. Pricey, but worth every cent. Have tried lots of brands, and this is the one.
Smooth a nickel-sized amount onto skin after cleansing. Allow to absorb 30 minutes prior to daytime exposure. Reapply after two hours of sun exposure and repeat every two hours as needed. It is recommended for daily use.
