Our dermatologist recommended this sun screen as the best protection and it works very well. It seems to be great protection, we have never had a sun burn. There is a big downside though: it is very difficult to apply and we always struggle with our toddler when we put it on him. It takes a long time until the white film is smeared in and we always have white marks on clothes, the stroller, bags etc... It also leaves a shiny film on the face (and causes greasy hair around the face) so I would not recommend it for adults who mind this...

Solbar Shield is effective enough to save even a skinny-dipping Swede from his own longing to be reborn as a tropical savage. It doesn't smell! It doesn't wash off in either fresh or salt water. It doesn't melt into your sweat and sting your eyes. One application will serve for a whole day in the sun, unless you have a British/Irish complexion, in which case two will do. What more could you ask for?

I don't usually review skin-care products, but I had such good experience with this one on a beach-camping & kayak expedition recently that I want the company to thrive and keep making the stuff. Besides, although global warming will not lengthen the hours of sunlight, it will strengthen the urge to take off your shirt and wear shorts.

This product was recommended to me by a dermatologist when my very fair son was complaining about the usual sunscreen burning his skin. This hypoallergenic sunscreen did the trick, and the complaining stopped right away!

I was using Nuetrogena 100. Neutrogena would get on the interior of rental cars and once I was charged an extra $150 for cleaning. In my research to find a less messy sun block I discovered that many, including Neutrogena, contain toxic ingredients and do NOT contain good sun blocking ingredients. Apparently the two good ingredients are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide (which are absent in Neutrogena). Also I discovered that high SPF is a hype; SPF above 50 really has no meaning, so an SPF of 100 is nonsense. I chose Solbar Shield Sunscreen SPF 40 because it has the two needed ingredients and has no toxins, AND it does not cause the staining problem that Neutrogena did!

Note added later: the only negative thing, and there is a work around, is the container. The design makes it difficult to dispense the lotion as there as more and more is used. The work around is:
1. When it becomes difficult to squeeze the lotion out take the cap off and tap it repeatedly against your palm of your hand until the desired amount comes out.
2. When 1. above no longer works cut the container in half with a box cutter. There will be a lot of lotion still left in either half of the container which can be extracted with your finger. I used to throw it out after 1. and wasted what was left.

I really like this product. I haven't had any problems getting it to rub in. It is *much* less smelly than "chemical" sunscreens. And it's a natural, safe sunscreen! Lastly, the important part, it works! No sunburn on this pale-skinned user.

October 2010 update: My mom bought this product after trying mine. It's the ONLY sunscreen she has been able to put on her face that doesn't irritate her eyes!

I love solbar. I have a lot of skin issues like allergies and I get burnt easily. Solbar is great for my skin and protects me from the sun. This thick sunscreen doesn't sweat off either!

This works pretty well... It's a bit thick and can be difficult to spread on your face, but I don't think you need to apply very much of it. Once its rubbed in and dries, its not oily or greasy at all. Overall, its a pretty good product.

I have been experimenting with natural sun screen for a while, and this one is one of the best! It is pretty easy to apply. However, it take sometime to absorb and is not a good make-up base. It has a slight scent of baby powder, but it is not unpleasant and is hardly noticeable.
