I've been smothering my 17 mo old son in this stuff to go to the pool and the beach this summer and especially with his white hair people are amazed at how little sun exposure he seems to have gotten. He's still VERY pale. We live at 6500 ft. elevation so the sun is brutal up here. The lotion takes a little extra rubbing, but it's not greasy and has NO odor at all. I love it and plan to buy another tube soon.

Please be cautious if your child has eczema, sensitive skin, or allergies in general. My son broke out in a horrible red, hot, rash (very much like sunburn) as well as hives all over his body last weekend after applying this sunblock. It was extremely uncomfortable to say the least, and by the next day his eyes were almost swollen shut. After taking him to the doctor and doing extensive research online about sunscreen allergies, I have discovered that all 5 active ingredients are chemicals known to cause severe reactions (avobenzone, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene and oxybenzone). It is far safer to use the physical barrier sunscreens (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) than the chemical ones. And no matter what product you use, first apply a small amount both in and out of the sun to fully test. Some people react to these chemicals, only in combination with exposure to the sun, called photochemical reaction. Also, it can take more than 24 hours for a reaction to appear. I am disappointed with Aveeno (J&J)to advertise a product as "safe as water", when it actually consists of chemicals which are knwon to cause severe reactions in some people! Please be careful. There are plenty of people who don't have any adverse reactions, but there are plenty of people who do!

      Comments about Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 55, 4 oz:

      I literally have no idea why a product for babies and children would not be tearless.
      I have sworn by Aveeno products for years for both of my children's eczema. But within 20 minutes of application, and for hours after, both my 3 year old and 3 month old were screaming over this spf getting in there eyes. Frankly, I'm furious. I expected better from this brand.
      Trashing this ASAP.

      My children really love the smell and texture of Aveeno sunscreen. Because they all have eczema, I'd tried many brands and products. This is the only one they like.

              I use the Aveeno SPF 70 on my face. (I used to use the SPF 100 but it's been discontinued.) I bought the Aveeno SPF 55 baby because I thought it would be gentle on my children's skin (ages 10, 7, 4). They all complained that this sunscreen burned their skin around the eyes. I tried it on my face and it does burn the skin around the eyes. So, I returned the bottle and will not be buying this one again.

                    My daughter has very sensitive skin and she breaks out in rashes with almost every product we have tried; even those meant for sensitive skin. Though I tend to buy the least expensive effective product, this one gets 2 thumbs up from me.

                    I will never use this product again and I hope no one else will buy it either. Like others have said this product caused a rash on my 9 month old and also caused her eyes and nose to pour... I looked at the ingredients (I wish I would have before buying, so much for trusting a company who suposedly sells products made for sensitive skin) and it contains behenyl alcohol also known as Docosanol. An antiviral that was approved by the FDA under the name Abreva. I can't immagine rubbing something that is potent enough to kill the herpes virus all over my child... When I pointed this out to Aveeno they denied that this ingredient was in their product... NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!

                      The first time I used this on my 1 year old daughter, it stung her eyes. It got so irritated it looked like someone punched her. Poor thing could barely open her eyes for several hours even after it was washed off. At first I thought it was because she rubbed her eyes and got some sunblock in there. I thought it was my fault for getting it too close to her eyes and didn't think much of it. Then, I started using it on my 4 year old son everyday this summer since he started swim lessons. Every time I put it on him he cried and complained about it stinging his face. I thought he was just whining because he didn't want to stand still, but then 3 weeks later I started noticing discoloration on his face (white spots, to be exact). I looked up Aveeno on [@] and found out that they are rated as unsafe. I am very disappointed in the product and will stop using immediately.

                          Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sunscreen Lotion

                           – Everyone of all ages needs sun protection but it's even more important that babies be protected from the sun's damaging rays. Sun exposure is cumulative meaning it adds up over a lifetime. Sun damage your baby gets today could mean an increased risk of skin cancer later in life. At the same time, babies have skin that's more easily irritated by the ingredients in sunscreen products. They need sun protection that won't harm their delicate skin but will still protect them from the sun's rays. This is where Aveeno comes in.

                          Sun Protection for Babies



                          Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sunscreen Lotion is made for the special needs of a baby. This product offers high-level sun protection (SPF of 55) and blocks UVA and UVB rays, both of which are damaging to the skin. To help protect baby's skin from the sun, this sunscreen harnesses the power of a patented process called active photobarrier complex. This complex makes the product more stable in sunlight and maximizes the amount of time your baby's skin is protected from the sun. In this unique product, active photobarrier protection is combined with natural oatmeal to soothe and soften your baby's skin. Oatmeal has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce irritation. Sunscreen is appropriate for babies six months of age and older. If your baby is younger, consult with your child's pediatrician about sun protection and what's best for your baby. Continuous protection sunscreen combined with protective clothing helps to reduce a baby's risk of sun damage when they're outside. Make sure they're protected.
