Bought this to use at the beach while pregnant. Loved it and I didn’t get burnt I applied and applied! Definitely effective for me and not expensive. I would buy it over and over again for my beach trips.

My go to sun screen. It’s quick and easy and it doesn’t break me out. I can even spray this on my face and trust that it won’t clog my pores. Very affordable.

 It is perfect for the beach and the pool even after you get out of the water it is still lasting. Definitely not sticky like other brands and keep someone like me with highly fair skin from getting burnt.

This product is good at protecting from the sun, but I no longer bring spray sunscreen of any kind to the beach.  The beach is a windy place, and you end up spraying the air more than your skin.  With the price of this product, it's not something you want to waste.  You're better off getting the lotion.

It's sunscreen. I mean it does what it's supposed to. And it doesn't stay oily too long. Dries down quick too.

There’s nothing that beats a mess-free sunscreen that smells good and actually works really well! The high SPF is perfect for those who want to avoid skin damage and plan to be out for a while. It’s super easy to use, effective, and smells great. Love this and will buy it again !

I am not a big fan of sunscrees because of how sticky it feels and you end up with sand everywhere, this product works for me.
