super easy to apply but it's kind of greasy. This formula is pretty gentle on the skin so I think overall it's an okay product. Not amazing but it definitely gets the job done! It was just what I expected, nothing expectional, it's just good. :)

The spf is very long lasting and strong. Ive never used a better sucreen that protects my pale white skin from sunburning after many hours in the hot sun. It sprays on well. The only part that is negative is that it is sticky but that is expected from suncreen as such. 10/10 would buy again.

I love this stuff. As someone who can go very pale from one minute to very red the next, this helped to keep my skin from burning up this summer. Not sticky or irritating a must have for any pale princess looking for defense from the evil sun.

By far the best sunscreen that I've used for Florida Beach weather. It's light, smells great - which is one of the things I hate most about sunscreen! - and keeps the sand from not sticking so hard on skin! #beachbag essential right here!

I bought this at Target on sale and I'm glad I did because it worked really well. I ended up using most of it while my family and I attended an outdoor festival. Now, we spent most of our time partially shaded with trees, so I don't know how effective it would've been otherwise, but it worked for us. I still don't like it as much as other sunscreens. (I prefer Coppertone Sport Performance)

This is a great, lightweight, easy-to-apply sunscreen. I love the spray applicator, it applies very evenly in a thin layer and soaks in really quickly! I never feel great afterward, either, and the 70 SPF really makes sure you're protected.

This stuff if amazing, and with four boys, it is quick to apply. I love that it leave absolutely no sticky or slimy residue at all. It does run out sooner than I would like, but it is easy to pack, the sand doesn't stick to it, and it does a fantastic job of protecting the family.

This sunscreen works well and has a pleasant smell. However, it requires several re-applications and does not go on wet skin very well. Always make sure you get someone else to spray the hard to reach spots because you will get burned!!

This is my go to sunscreen for an active day in the sun. It's easy application because of the spray. And the spray spreads evenly. It is gentle and does not irritate my sensitive skin. I did not get burned after applying it multiple times a day. I would buy this each summer.

This is the best sunscreen I have used for my fair skin. I burn so easy so I am very careful.
I bought this after an unsuccessful attempt with a 50spf comparable to Waterbabies failed.
This stuff rocks! So worth the few extra dollars.
