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!
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
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.
The correct description is way down the page. You'll have to scroll a lot to get there. It says "Ingredients: Octinoxate 7.5%, Octocrylene 2%, Oxybenzone 3%, Zinc Oxide 6% ..." So only 6% Zinc, not Titanium Dioxide, and the very chemicals (e.g., Oxybenzone) that the CDC says should be avoided.
DO NOT BUY. Buy another Blue Lizard product that does not contain Oxybenzone. They do make them; this just isn't one of them.
Amazon should delist this product until they correct the description to list the correct ingredients at the top.
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.
- 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
- Zero so far!
