Besides the fact I love spray sun screen better, it doesn't apply everywhere which is a major flaw. You still have to evenly apply the rest with your hands, and yes you have to reapply as always. I used this a summer back in the travel form, and I didn't realize it came on so splotchy. Needless to say I got a similar sunburn. Well, spray is not always a great method. At least, if you're prone to sunburns like I am. Go the lotion route instead.
