Worked well for my children. It’s quite thick so it is a little tough to rub in. My son has sensitive skin and eczema. This sunscreen did not seem to bother his skin, which is important to us.

Works well. I have light olive skin and this definitely leaves white cast and requires a little more work to spread but it doesn’t bother me - mostly used for beach.

This is very thick and incredibly difficult to rub in. It doesn’t absorb well at all and leaves a WICKED white cast, even on my fair skin. It took me twice as much time and product to apply to cover my body adequately. I can’t imagine any child being patient enough for this stuff. Oh and it collected in the creases of my skin. Lovely.

I use this for my one year old son. He has eczema and this hasn’t irritated his skin at all yet. It takes a little work to rub in, but it does absorb without leaving a yucky residue all over him. Works well too, he hasn’t gotten any sunburns yet.

Whitney - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’ve never written a bad review, but sunscreen is so important. I put this on my kiddos and 2 nephews 3 times in one day and they were the only kids at our family reunion that were fried. My 6 year old had blisters on her face. I reapplied religiously and put it on thick and the kids that used this new sunscreen of mine got burned. I ran and grabbed a more expensive mineral sunscreen and it did a great job.

It’s a mineral sunscreen so it does appear white before rubbing in. Have used several brands and types of mineral sunscreen and this actually rubs in pretty easily. No, it’s not clear on application like a chemical sunscreen, but it works well.

This sunscreen is incredibly difficult to rub in. It is impossible to rub in if you have any body hair. Even if you have very fair skin, it will leave a noticeable white cast. My daughter was told she looked like a skeleton while wearing it. The good news is that no one had an allergic reaction to it.

Liapez - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I have been using this sunscreen on our family of kids and adults (we have fairly pale skin) for three years. I use it in my Solar Buddies applicators (which are amazing - check them out!). Kids don't burn, it is not drying, and it rubs in well and absorbs quickly. We use it for sports, pool, and beach. Hadn't failed us yet. I've tried TONS of mineral sunscreens, including ones that are far more expensive and this has worked the best for us.

I love this sunscreen for my kids! I use it for my husband and myself too! It is nonirritating and protects the skin very well. We have never been burned while wearing it and the kids haven't complained about their eyes burning when we apply it to their faces. It is thick and will leave white residue but its a great tradeoff for protected skin and no weird rashes from chemical sunscreen!

I LOVE this sunscreen. I’m extremely pale and burn very easily. I did not burn in the Caribbean at all with using this religiously. It is very thick and leaves a major white cast, so if appearance matters to you, do not use this. But if all you are going for is skin protection….this is perfect.

The only reason I’m icing two stars is because it worked, and I didn’t burn in Cabo. However after one day of use my entire back and chest broke out in hives and acne. It’s so thick, hard to work in, and leaves a terrible white cast. There’s much better on the market.

This sunscreen had a horrible consistency. It was shockingly bright white and did not blend into the skin. After 3 attempts, I threw the large full container into the garbage. I won’t try Banana Boat again.

Oh my gosh this stuff sucks! You need ALOT to cover because it doesn’t spread over skin easy. It’s very hard to cover evenly. If you have white skin this probably looks ok but if you have anything darker you will have white streaks all over or look greyish purple it looks ridiculous and gross lol! It’s almost like a clay mask. This is best just to make that white triangle on your nose. Even the parts of our skin that looked covered were getting red. So, not only does it look ugly on, it will not cover you evenly and it just doesn’t work.

I finally didn't burn!! I am on medication that I burn no matter how much or how often I apply. I was in the sun literally all day for 5 days straight with the sun rays at a 10 in and out of water. All I got was a beautiful tan. It does leave a white cast but if you know anything about MINERAL sunscreens they do that along with being horrible to rub in and being sticky. But it worked amazing!!
