Didn't work for me,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Caribbean Solutions Sol Kid Kare SPF 25 Water Resistant Sun Block, 6 Ounce (Health and Beauty)
I didn't have a good experience with this sunscreen. I took it on a vacation to Mexico because most of the natural parks require it. I found that it washed away very quickly while I was in the water. The bottle says to re-apply it every 40 minutes which I did because I hate being sunburned. But as soon as I got into the ocean or pool, it washed off immediately, leaving me exposed and I got burned anyway. We could never get it to absorb completely either. It left a white tint wherever you applied it.
As a physical barrier to the sun, it works great. If you're planning on being in the water, I'd find something else. While I love the idea of it being natural and safe for the environment, I will not be using it on my son. I don't want to run the risk of him being severely burned because it washed off.

If you are going to be in and out of the water it is usually advised that you buy "sport" sunscreen. Caribbean Sol makes a sport sunscreen (I have not used it and therefore cannot comment on its effectiveness) which probably would have been a better choice for your particular needs.
