Amavara lotions are delivered to you in a top-of-the-line airless pump, meaning your sunscreen will never separate, oxidize OR burst open during travel. These steps will help to properly prime your new pump!
1. With the cap cover in place over the pump, invert the container upside down and tap firmly 4‐5 times. (This will force the liquid up into the actuator and create a vacuum). You can also "shake" the liquid down toward the tip.
2. Position the container with the dispenser side down.
3. Remove the cap, and with the nozzle away from your face, press the pump until all the air has been evacuated. You should feel the pump gain pressure as it engages.
4. Dispense the product directly onto the area you wish to protect. And remember, a little goes a long way!
*Please note: It may take several pumps to completely prime the pump to allow the actuator to deliver product.

AMAVARA AIRLESS PUMP EDUCATION
I am an avid outdoor enthusiast as well as very fair skinned and prone to skin cancer. Also there is some ingredient in non-mineral sunscreen that makes my eyes water and swell up. So to say I've had a tough time finding a good dependable MINERAL sunscreen is an UNDERSTATEMENT! I have bought so many sunscreens to try...from the cheap mineral sunscreens you can buy at Target, to a $100+ European mineral sunscreen. I have tried EVERYTHING! I have wasted SO much money!
Either the sunscreens were a weird consistency, made me TOO white, melted off when I got sweaty, the list goes on and on....I came across an Amavara ad on FB and decided to give it a try. I am pleasantly surprised. I've worn it once while running in over 100 degree weather (in TX humidity) and one time Mtn biking in the same weather conditions. Usually I apply a few layers over a 20 min or so time to make sure I am completely covered before I go out. But in both of these instances I did one coat. I was out for 1 hour running, and 3 hours mtn biking. This sunscreen did not sweat off (hallelujah!!!) and I didn't get sunburned! (woo hoo!!!) what also was SOOOO awesome is that I bought the tinted version so I didn't look like a ghost on either of these occasions! (Yay!!) I am a fan! I am going mtn biking at Winterpark this coming up week and I can't wait to put it to the test! Thank you Amavara! I am off to your site in a second to order some more bottles!
For anyone with skin tones lighter than NC25, the tinted higher protection version is too dark and also oxidizes orange. It also does not dry down (not matte on my combination skin) and transfers (including to clothes). It does spread quite well, but unfortunately I can't wear this. Will try mixing with a white sunscreen to see if that helps. Would prefer an untinted version of spf 50. Mixing with the spf 30 would probably dilue efficacy. Lastly, I would really like to know the UVA protection on this sunscreen, as that is much more deadly than UVB and is constant year round.
Your tinted mineral sunscreen SPF 50 works great. No sunburn!
This is really great sunscreen, it looks a bit dark coming out but doesn't end up showing on my fair/light skin. Oddly, it does seem to give a little bit of coverage as well in that it blurs dark circles and the like without looking like make up. It holds up well, though I haven't gone swimming in it, I have sweated a lot. Highly recommend to sunscreen freaks out there! By the way, it annoys me that the review request defaults to 5 stars, but I would give it that.
Holds up in water but lots of chemicals in mix. Not sure if they are ok?...
