Product Description

Blue Lizard Australian Suncream Sport SPF 30+ is a broad spectrum sun block that is extremely water resistant. Blue Lizard utilizes transparent Zinc Oxide along with chemical blockers to provide broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays. The packaging is unique as it provides a UV indicator for consumers to know when they need to be wearing suncreen. The bottle turns BLUE when exposed to UV rays.

The Blue Lizard Australian SPF 30+ Sport Suncream offers protection you can trust. Dermatologists have recommended Blue Lizard for years because of its superior UVA protection. The Australian-grade formula uses transparent zinc oxide to safely reflect UVA and UVB rays, without leaving your skin feeling greasy. And to make things even easier, Blue Lizard uses the unique Smart Bottle technology -- the bottle actually turns blue when harmful UVA rays are present. With Blue Lizard you never have to wonder if sun protection is absolutely necessary.



Blue Lizard Australian-grade suncream offers superior protection, and to make things even easier the bottle changes color when harmful UVA rays are present.
"More" Isn't Always Better
It is a common misconception that higher SPF means more sun protection. That's simply not true. In fact, SPF does not necessarily have anything to do with UVA. Blue Lizard's formula offers more than 30 times your skin's natural protection against UVB rays. This SPF 30+ lotion has been tested according to Australian standards, which are considered more stringent than FDA regulations. If you apply your suncream correctly, then SPF 30+ is all you should need.

It's a Secret Recipe
Blue Lizard Australian Suncream is made with a unique super-micronized zinc oxide that allows the protectant to form an even barrier against UV rays. Other sunscreens are less technologically advanced, so they don't blend on to the skin as easily and, thus, don't stay on as long.

I'd Like My Lizard Juice-Free, Please
With Blue Lizard's chemical-free formulas, you know that your skin is completely safe from ultraviolet radiation. With a high percentage of zinc oxide, Blue Lizard blocks harmful sunlight at the skin's surface before it even has a chance to penetrate to lower layers. Cheaply produced, higher SPF sunscreens are juiced up with chemical absorbers. That means harmful UV rays have the opportunity to get into your skin, where the chemicals trap it and "trick" your skin into thinking it's not going to burn. Plus, studies have shown that high levels of chemical absorbers can leak into your bloodstream.

Take a Closer Look
Don't be fooled by all the sunscreens that tout zinc oxide as their main ingredient. Dermatologists recommend at least five-percent zinc oxide (Blue Lizard Sport provides six-percent). In fact, if you look closely, many sunscreens that proudly announce "Zinc Oxide" on their packaging, only provide a measly one- to two-percent. And remember, even if a sunscreen offers a high percent of zinc oxide, it's not going to work if it doesn't stay on. The FDA requires water-resistance testing in 80 minutes of still water. Australian standards are 240 minutes in whirlpool water, so Blue Lizard is tested and proved to offer three times more water resistance than almost any other sunscreen on the market.

All of the natural sunscreens will be white and harder to blend in. This one came out of the tube easiest, blended in easiest, and didn't smell stale or like dirt like the other ones (You know, that cheap dollar store lotion smell). This is the first sunscreen that my irish husband and son can use and not burn, which is a miracle for me.

Other lotions I'm comparing it to; Alba, Coola, Badger, Burnout, Kidsport, Tropical Sands.

The Sport version does not have any Titanium Dioxide.

The active ingredients are: Oxybenzone 3%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Octocrylene 2% and Zinc Oxide 6%

The Blue Lizard Sensitive and Blue Lizard Baby both have active ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 5% and Zinc Oxide 10%

This Florida family uses sun block not the "O" chemical absorbers. What an annoyance to return an item because of an incorrect description! Research items beyond Amazon, Amazon descriptions are inaccurate!

Over 15 years ago, my Dermatologist removed a small brown spot from my skin and diagnosed me with basal cell carcinoma. This was a bit scary to me as I was very young. I am very fair skinned, and suffered from sunburns my entire childhood. On the advice of that doctor, my family has been using Blue Lizard sunscreen products now for almost 15 years. I personally use sport, regular and face, but have used the baby and sensitive formulas on my family.

My parents generation didn't believe in using sunscreen. I have been educated the hard way from the harmful effects of the sun, so I know how important it is to prevent them from BIRTH! We have always made sure our kids were properly protected when going out in the sun. That being said, our youngest had a small brown mole on the bottom of her foot from birth. At age 5, the dermatologist began measuring the mole and said eventually it would have to be removed with surgery. At age 8, we went ahead and had it taken off. Now more than ever it is important to make sure that she never has a sunburn. Blue Lizard, when applied properly and according to the package recommendations, is the best sunscreen I have ever used. My daughter uses the sensitive formula because she has very sensitive skin.

If these reasons aren't enough, my husband suffers from a sort of sun allergy. The ONLY sunscreen that keeps him from itching after sun exposure is Blue Lizard.

It works best if you apply it to dry skin, let it dry before going out in the sun, reapply as needed

As someone who is very fair-skinned and has had a tendency to develop actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous lesions that are caused by exposure to broad-spectrum ultraviolet light), I have tried various kind of sunscreens. Most recently my dermatologist recommended this product, at least partly because it screens across the ultraviolet spectrum, unlike some that only screen out ultraviolet A.
This Australian product manufactured in Tennessee is relatively expensive but I think it's worth it. For one thing, it contains zinc oxide (that stuff that lifeguards paint their noses with) along with two other sunscreen ingredients and for another it is formulated to stay on your skin without easily wearing off. My own experience is that I can be in the sun for most of the day with only two applications; I feel it is more tenacious than, say, Coppertone Sport Sunblock.
One strange and possibly merely bells-and-whistles feature is that the clear plastic container immediately turns blue (and I'm told the baby lotion version turn pink) on exposure to UV. This is helpful, I suppose, if you're not sure whether to put the lotion on, say on a cloudy day. But those of us with sun-sensitive skin know that ultraviolet penetrates the layer of clouds which are no protection against skin damage. Still, it's kind of cute to see the bottle turn a bright blue as you watch.

I have a 3 year old who, if he had his way, would spend every minute of every day outside, and every minute near any body of water in it/ sprayed by it/ playing with it.

The beginning of this summer we were using Babyganics 50+ sunscreen in the pump bottle, and thought I loved it. Was happy to be using a 'natural' product. Then noticed that after even an hour outside in partial sun, without water play, we were both getting some sun and it didn't seem to be working. I was reapplying & reapplying. Then my husband got some Banana Boat Baby (which horrified my somewhat-granola-y preferences - and furthermore, irritated my son's eyes and wouldn't stay on for 10 minutes of splashing around in a baby pool). Have previously tried Honest Co. natural sunblock, but found it greasy. So Googling I go, and find Blue Lizard recommended again and again.

Picked the Sport over the Baby version in attempts to avoid excessive applications on a wet wiggly preschooler.

First test was about 2 hours splashing around the baby pool on our deck which gets a good amount of sun. He didn't get a bit of color or show any skin irritation, and the block stayed on! (I did reapply once to more exposed areas out of habit). I used it on myself as well, and have always been able to feel that exact moment when sunblock stopped working and didn't get that at all.

PROS
- Love that it rubs in so quickly and feels nice on your skin. Not chalky, pasty, goopy. More like a nice body lotion. This also makes it quick and easy to apply to wiggly kids.
- Excellent water resistance
- Nice, very light scent
- Has not irritated our eyes

CONS
- Zero so far!
