Bought for my son. We also bought some other brands including California Baby. He prefers this one and complained about the California Baby one near his eyes. I also use the stick sunscreen for his face because I think it's less likely to run. We also have the Banana Boat continuous spray which works well and is so easy, but I wouldn't use it on the face, especially for a baby who can't follow the direction to keep his moth and eyes closed. My son has not had any burns, rashes or tears from this sunscreen.

Effective sunblock, but so hard to rub in. I look like I'm wearing a kabuki mask. My husband refuses to use it since being teased by his friends for his "white mask." Would use it for sports activities in intense sun only.

        This used to be our favorite sunblock. It now has titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as the active ingredients. The website has not been updated to reflect this as of 6/2/13. Unfortunately this caused my skin and my daughter's to get red and itchy. We switched to Ocean Potion.

        Comments about Banana Boat Baby Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50, 8 fl oz:

        I use this product daily, as it is by far the best moisturizer/sunblock I have ever used. It IS heavy, and one must apply it and wait for a few minutes before applying any makeup over it; it is a terrific moisturizer. It does, however, do the job of blocking the sun extremely well and has never made my very sensitive skin break out. I would be lost without it.

          The best thing about this sunscreen is that it truly doesn't irritate my kids' skin or their EYES!! They are far from babies, but this is the only one I've found that works well and is truly tear-free! Love it!!

            I bought this for my 18 month old daughter after using Coppertone Baby for her since birth (based on reviews I had read). After using myself, I could not agree more. It has a normal Banana Boat lotion smell (which I like), is non-greasy, waterproof, and does not sting my child's eyes. It's perfect, and reasonable for sunblock. I will buy again once I am out.

                  Comments about Banana Boat Baby Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50, 8 fl oz:

                  I have used this product for years, including a trip to Hawaii last year. I also use it as my only facial moisturizer year-round under my makeup on a daily basis, as well as on my neck and chest during the summertime. It is not at all greasy which is what makes it such a great daily facial moisturizer for me since I have somewhat oily/combination sensitive skin. It even appears to make my liquid makeup look better and does not cause any breakouts.. I really like that it stays on when active and perspiring and does not burn the eyes which is great for everyone, not just babies! I am blonde and VERY fair! My fiancee has started using it too since he has seen how well it works for me. Drugstore.com has a great price for this product with year-round availability.

                    This sunscreen is awesome! I have three kids: 4 years, 2 years, and 8 months. Of all the sunscreens I have tried, this one is hands down the best at not burning eyes and staying on in the water! I apply at the house before we are at the beach or pool and don't have to reapply! Love it!!
