This product is excellent for protection. Although I wasnt in the sun for more than 2 hours - I was closer to the equator when I used this and there the sun is much more intense than in the states. Although I prefer products with scents - I didnt mind that this had no scent because I could layer my perfume over it and my husband was happy he could use it & he didnt smell like "a girl" as he put it. The only fault I would say is that it did take some time to make sure it was all rubbed in, as if you use this when its hot & humid out & your prone to sweating you will see a white line in the creases of places (ex. your neck) if you dont take the time to make sure its rubbed in really well. I go from white to red in a snap if Im not wearing sunscreen that provides accurate protection & for a prolonged period of time so in that respect this did its job perfectly.

Since moving to Florida we've tried a number of different sunscreens, but this has been our favorite so far. We prefer to have a mineral based product to cut back on harmful ingredients, and Blue Lizard is right up our alley. It allows you to get a great view of everywhere it has been applied so that you don't leave any areas untouched, and then it blends in nicely so that you don't feel sticky or greasy. It protect really well too, which is the whole point of the product, but not always easily found. We would definitely recommend this to friends. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I'm out in the sun a lot so I try many different sunscreens. This sunscreen works as expected. It didn't rub in as well as I'd like, although it did offer good coverage. I never to sunburned wearing this sunscreen. My favorite part is the bottle, which turns blue if it's in harmful sun rays. It made me realize that even under shaded areas, I'm still being exposed to sun. It's a nice little reminder to put on sunscreen. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I really like this item because it handled a really hot day at Legoland and didn't rub off or come off with water easily my kids and I were very well protected with it and I definitely would recommend anybody to buy it Overall I really like how it didn't really stick to my hand when rubbing it on and didn't feel sticky like most do [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
My family is outside a lot and we always put on sunscreen year round. We have sunscreen in every bag and every vehicle. With so much sunscreen use I have concerns about using sunscreen with Oxybenzone so frequently, especially for my young children. I have found that using sunscreen with only Zinc Oxide was not great for us during the hotter Texas months, possibly due to sweating? So I was excited to try this out. This sunscreen gets a better rating than regular sunscreens from EWG so that a big plus. I felt that it worked better than using Zinc Oxide alone, but still have not found a total equal to the protection we get from Oxybenzone sunscreens. I'm not sure if this is attributable to user application, or intensity of the Texas summer sun, or what. Using this all day at the beach with plenty of reapplying, we got a little pink. So I think I will stick with Oxybenzone for extreme sun beach days and use this as more of a daily sunscreen to keep us protected. At first I thought the blue changing bottle was a joke because it turned blue in the shade and I thought it was triggered more by heat than harmful UV rays. But when it turned white after being in the super hot car under a towel, that made me realize the blue was working and I've been really underestimating the amount of UV reflection we are getting even in the shade! So I think it's a great feature to bring more awareness! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
As a former product manager for sunscreen products, I understand well the importance of sun protection. Because this is a reef-safe sunscreen that doesn't damage the environment, this sunscreen relies on two main active ingredients for full spectrum protection - zinc oxide (for short and long UVA rays) and titanium dioxide (UVB and short UVA rays), which are the standard ingredients for most non-chemical sunscreens. The novel concept of this sunscreen brand is that the bottle turns blue in sunlight to remind you of the presence of harmful UV rays. I tested it out and it turned blue pretty instantly! Might feel like a gimmick but it did serve to remind me to top up! The sunscreen doesn't have any fragrance for those of you who have more sensitive skin, and applies very thickly. I definitely wouldn't use it on the face if your pores are prone to clogging, but the thickness of the sunscreen meant I felt I was applying a good coating across my skin. Once dry it wasn't that sticky or noticeable, which is nice. For those who want an environmentally friendly, non fragranced sunscreen, this is a decent pick. I would use this if I were diving or in water, but would normally prefer a fragranced sunscreen since I don't have sensitive skin. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I tired this product the other day and it worked like any other sunscreen! It did last a little longer in the water than others. I'm not really a fan of lotion applied sunscreen, but this was thin and easy to apply. Please make a spray version! That would be awesome! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Living in Florida, sunscreen is a daily need. I have been searching for one that has ingredients I feel confident putting on our skin daily, that also doesn’t leave us with a white film on our skin. Blue lizard Active Sunscreen is perfection. Works well in the heat, humidity, and water. Applies flawlessly without leaving a white film. Excellent coverage, no burning upon application after being in the water, and the UV indicator built into the bottle is an excellent reminder for myself and kids. I highly recommend Blue Lizard, and this formula is our go to! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
