This goes on lightweight, feels lightweight. Leaves 0 white or grey cast (it is extremely difficult to find a sunscreen that provides high broad spectrum spf 50/50+ that doesn't leave a white cast!)! I have a light medium-medium skin tone and I have had issues with finding an spf that doesn't leave you looking too sickly or like a ghost this one doesn't do that to me. It also really isn't shiny. It sinks right into the skin and leaves the skin feeling smooth and moisturised and looking radiant and does not feel sticky whatsoever. It's non irritating and doesn't make my eyes water when applying it around the eye area (I can't tell you how much of a struggle this has been to find a sunscreen that doesn't irritate the eyes). It's fragrance free and an Australian brand, which means they know their stuff when it comes to formulations in spf!! It's reef friendly too which is great for the enviroment so that you can protect yourself from the sun guilt free. This is so cheap too got this on offer for £5.59! It ticks so many boxes! I also noticed that one of the first ingredients are beeswax and aloe vera leaf juice, both completely natural and are good for the skin helping to sooth and provide lasting hydration all day. Honestly I don't think I Could ask for anything better! This fits well into my budget, does what it's suppose to do and can also be worn under makeup and creates a perfect base?! Excellent!

This is the best sunscreen that I’ve ever used in my life for many reasons, but the best things about it are that it’s not your usual sunscreen. 1) it does not smell like a usual sunscreen. All of the other sunscreen have that typical “sunscreen” smell. You know what I’m talking about. While I can’t quite explain what this sunscreen smells like, I am always reminded of a 5 star hotel spa when I put it on. The scent itself is not overpowering, does not smell chemically induced, but is a rather nice, balanced calming smell. 2) it doesn’t feel like a regular sunscreen. I have to spend a good 10-15 minutes rubbing in the other sunscreens onto my skin - otherwise my skin has a white film residue and appears pasty. This sunscreen is very quickly absorbed into my skin- I’ve actually enjoyed putting it on so much, I’ve incorporated it into my daily skincare routine. It makes a perfect moisturizing/makeup primer base! 3) speaking of pasty white, pasty white it is not. It’s more of a cream color, and again, it does not leave a residue when applied to my skin. 4) it’s Hawaii compliant - which means when I go swimming, I don’t have to worry about this sunscreen affecting the coral reefs. And when covid is over, I’m definitely getting my butt back in Hawaii and this is very much coming with me. I was very fortunate to receive this as a complimentary sample from Influenster, but as soon as I am done with this bottle, I’m stocking up on more of my HG sunscreen!

I LOVE SUN BUM!!! Best sunscreen I’ve used so far. It actually smells good, spreads and rubs into skin easily, does not leave a sticky residue. The bottle is awesome too because unlike many sunscreen bottles, this one doesn’t leak! This brand was all I used during my summers lifeguarding and it’s I’ll continue to use them. I’ve never once got a burn when using this sunscreen as directed. This goes for the other SPF levels too, even SPF 15. Their sprays are also great if you prefer that type of application! And cruelty free brand❤️ this sunscreen is worth the price. Stock up when ulta has their buy 1 get 1 50% off deals...which is like all the time lol.

Wow when I say this is one of my favorite for sunscreens it truly is. I understand why it one a beauty award because this product melts into the skin so incredibly without that gross sticky feeling or grainy texture you get from mineral sunscreen . My favorite part about it is the green tea in the product really helps calm and bring down the inflammation and redness in the skin. The consistency of this product is like a whipped formula and it really just melts into a matte finish. Beautiful clean scent as well. A MUST BUY

Great sunscreen. Stays on well, spray bottle doesnt clog, no need to constantly reapply. I like an SPF of at least 50, but Banana Boat has many other SPF levels too. Banana Boat has so many different varieties you're bound to find a type thats perfect for you. It Smells ok and thank god it doesnt smell like coconuts. Yay! The smell is not overpowering, absorbs quickly into skin and doesn't dry my skin out. The only negative is the price but i did find a $2 off coupons hanging on the products so that sealed the deal for me. With the $2 off i could get the quality of Banana Boat at the same price as the cheap stuff.

So I’ll shout it to the roof tops that I am a Stan of this entire skincare line. I am obsessed with every product from neutrogena hydro boost collection. There just so freaking good ( fantastic quality) at semi affordable pricing. I think I have almost every single product idk though I have to double check lol. But the newest product I am trying out from this line is there water gel lotion with spf 30. It is so so good omg it was love at first site you guys. Of course it is a gel moisturizer and has a gel consistency. But it glides on like butter so smoothly and leaves a cool refreshing hydrating feeling in the process. It deeply penetrates the skin and infuses it with so much hydration and moisture. My skin feels silky soft and plump. It doesn’t leave a greasy feeling and absorbs so well. My skin feels replenished and even has a nice glow. The spf 30 is definitely an added bonus gotta protect the skin from that horrid sun ☀️. This is a moisturizer that I consistently grab for and will continue to buy. I just love it so much 🥰❤️ I think as of right now this is my favorite moisturizer of 2020. As long as neutrogena has this product they will have a loyal customer with me.

I've used this for a few years and it definitely does the trick. It's a clear, slick chemical sunscreen that feels pretty occlusive on the skin. It will definitely hold up in 90 degree weather and in and out of the water. I wore it for 3 months in India during summer time and it did hold up pretty well but that was a few years back. I feel like something in the formula has changed and I can't seem to put my finger on it. I used to wear this under make up all the time and it never ever looked weird. When I use it under make up now it kind of looks really odd and textured. Maybe I need less or maybe I need to use other cosmetic products instead but I will keep on trying new things till it works because I know it definitely worked before. Overall, pretty good sunscreen. May cause some people to break out because of it's thicker consistency.

I absolutely love this stuff! It has a wonderful scent, like all Hawaiian Tropic products do. It doesn't leave that white residue that most sunblocks leave on your skin. It isn't too thick either, which is a plus in hot weather. I think this product is just what I was looking for in a sunblock, especially for everyday use. With this, you won't need to put lotion on. It seems to last all day and won't run in hot sticky weather. I can't wait to try the spray as well. I hope they never stop making this!

When I was on accutane, my dermatologist recommended using CeraVe as a moisturizer. Turns out they make a good sunscreen as well. It’s not too thick and smoothly applies. It is a little pricey for the amount but overall a good product.
