This is an excellent sunscreen for makeup-free days in the sun. The best thing about it is the liquid-ey consistency. I hate how creamy face sunscreens can be because they always break me out, but for the cost, this wears wonderfully. Even my boyfriend, who is super sensitive to sunscreen (breaks out, hates the texture/smell) prefers this one.

The one drawback is that isn't great to pile with foundation. In my experience (I have pale, dry/combination skin) the makeup gets patchy and melts off quicker. I don't use this as my every day sunscreen, but for beach days it's perfect. ...read more

This is a great everyday sunscreen. I use it after my serum and moisturizer, then put my foundation on, on top of it. This doesn't irritate my sensitive skin like some sunscreens do. Really, it feels just like a moisturizer. I like that it is a high SPF, that it is not sticky, and has other beneficial ingredients to combat free radicals and pollution. It does leave a slight sheen on my skin, so I usually feel like I need to at least put some powder on top of it, if I do not wear makeup. ...read more

Bain de Soleil Orange Gelée is a classic! I recall using this product throughout my entire teen & young adult days. So when I rediscovered it via the boyfriend I was so happy. This 3.12 Oz bottle of heaven gives you such an amazing, rich and dark glowy tan which leaves you feeling sexy. Plus it's rich in emolients so it leaves your skin feeling luxuriously silky smooth. ...read more

This is my favorite beach bag essential or shall I say necessity. I have been using this brand and specific sunscreen for years and nothing will change it. It has an AMAZING smell, the kind that reminds me of summer time and the beach with a hint of coconuts. It's a very tropical smell. It goes on really nicely and absorbs pretty quick. Never leaves my skin greasy or oily even while I'm working. It also makes your skin glittery due to the glitter in the product. I haven't had a problem with a sunburn ever since I started using this stuff. I highly recommend applying it before you leave the house going to the pool or beach and then reapply when you get there. Practice sun safety! ...read more

I'm very, very pale. I'm basically translucent and don't have a color to my skin. I burn just by sitting by a window. I also burn under strong lights in a house or building. This sunscreen works though! I had a major milestone a few weeks ago when I went to the river and didn't burn! No burn at all, not even pink. I applied this sunscreen before leaving the house, once again in the truck (just to be sure), and once I got there. All together I had it on about an hour before being outside. I swam for about an hour and dried off and reapplied it. I then went back in the water for another hour. I reapplied when I got out and sat in the direct sun for 2 more hours. No burn!!!! I've spent time in the hospital for burns and spent weeks healing and peeling and of course crying in pain, so I sprayed myself very often with this sunscreen since id never used it before. It's great! Not sticky, not greasy, does have a scent, but it's very light and smells like after taking a shower. It's kind of expensive compared to other sunscreens (about $10), and I used quite a bit of it in one day, but it really is worth it. Oh! And it didn't break my face out. Most other sunscreens make my face break out in tiny, painful, red bumps that usually last up to 2 days, but my face was just fine after using it. It's good stuff. I'd recommend this sunscreen to everyone! ...read more

I received this sunscreen in my Nurture VoxBox. I had seen Blue Lizard before, but never thought about getting it. I always gravitated towards the bigger named products. Let me just say, I have been wrong for quite some time. This is now my FAVORITE sunscreen. I have fair skin and we just went to Hawaii so I brought along my tube of Blue Lizard along with a back up thinking it may not work. Blue LIzard was the only sunscreen I used and the 30spf protected my skin so unbelievably well. The lotion went on evenly without feeling too greasy and it stayed on so well throughout the day with with the activities. Oftentimes, "sensitive" sunscreens still make my skin breakout, but not the Blue Lizard!

I can honestly say this is now my go to sunscreen. ...read more
