Is the sunblock I am using good ?

I am a 19 year old and I am using ----Minesol Roc Emulsion Anti-Shine SPF 30---- I live in Dubai and its very hot in here so I just wanted to know if that is good for my skin as my skin is reacting in some of the products i have been using it now for 2 days and i didnt see any side effects but im scared that i will get any side effects as my skin is normal but a little bit sensitive at the same time and im workin mostly outdoors. So if anyone tried it out before a Product from Roc then please let me know about your experience. thank you
