I looooove this sunscreen! I've always tended to buy brands like DDF or Clinique, but I needed larger quantities (at a lower price) because I'm starting college and have to walk around campus in 100+ degree heat for hours. I'm a redhead, burn incredibly easily, and do not tan. Ever. I burn, then peel. A sunburn will also trigger a shingles outbreak, which is so incredibly painful I cannot describe it. Skin cancer is prevalent in my family, so I'm a bit paranoid about it, also.

My problem with sunscreen is I'm apparently more sensitive to smell than other consumers. Most that say they're "fragrance free" are really just unscented, which isn't the same thing. The acrid chemical smell of most sunscreens sticks in my nose and won't go away for days. (Neutrogena, for instance, although frangrance free, burns the inside of my nose when I breathe in the smell.) I bought Blue Lizard because the reviews seemed to find it both effective and low odor....

SO TRUE!!! I love it. It has a really faint smell like someone thought about maybe scenting it, then changed their mind. It's very faint, though, a lot like a light fragrance might linger after using a scented soap. The lotion is thin, but not in a bad way -- it makes it easy to apply and it sinks in faster. (Dry off any sweat before applying it, though, because this can make it too thin.) I'd suggest applying it thick enough so you can still see it a bit, then let it sink in. It will disappear on its own, and otherwise I'm not sure it's enough protection, being so thin, but I don't really know.

I love this lotion. I'm going to buy more, so I can keep some in the car, at home, and in my purse.

Be careful...people say Blue Lizard is great for sensitive skin, but they mean the Sensitive Skin formula. This regular formula has many of the same chemical sunscreens as many other brands, even though it does have zinc oxide for UVA protection (which is good if you're specifically allergic to, say, Avobenzone). Because my daughter and I didn't know which chemicals we were allergic to, we tried this one thinking the Zinc would help. Both of us had a reaction--not very serious, but still (one or two hives, a small rash). If you have very sensitive skin, stick to the Sensitive Skin formula. If not, this is one of the best sunscreens in terms of staying power, easy to rub in, not greasy/sticky, etc.

      Comments about Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Lotion, Regular, SPF 30+, 8.75 fl oz:

      I am a triathlete who does long distance swims and scuba dives. This particular sunscreen was recommended to me because most brands don't last in the water. And getting your butt toasted isn't pleasant.

      This sunscreen definitely does last (used it in 5k, 10k and Ironmans) and to give you an idea of how well it works, if you put it on and sweat or come out of the sea, the water beads on your skin as if you're a freshly waxed car.

      The bottle also turns blue to indicate the high levels of UV light, which is good to have especially for those cloudy days when you aren't sure.

      The only con I can think of is that you do have to reapply (though not as often as a regular brand, every four hours, give or take) on dry skin and if you don't reapply well enough, it will look a little white at the elbows.

        Comments about Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Lotion, Regular, SPF 30+, 8.75 fl oz:

        I've used this product for several years and love it. It works great on the body. I'm not normally a brand person unless it really works well. Blue Lizard costs more than the cheapest brands, but less than the most expensive, and it works very well. Most brands, even this one, is too harsh for my face. I also buy Blue Lizard sunscreen for sensitive skin for my face and the area under my arms that get really dry if I use the regular sunscreen. It can also sting the eyes a bit if you sweat and it mixes with the sunscreen and seeps into your eyes. But what one won't?

        This is the best product on the market for UVA/UVB protection. Sure it's a bit heavy, but it's zinc based and that's the only ingredient that blocks the sun's harmful rays. A fair-skinned family member used this product, all day in summer sun and was not even pink in the evening!

              We boat almost every weekend and also have a lot of land to mow so we are always outside in the hot sun. So when a friend recommended this product we bought and have never looked back. We love Blue Lizard. It really protects our faces, ears, neck and shoulders.

                  This is pretty much the only sunscreen I can count on to keep my red-head from burning. It is really hard to find in stores (and this year it was in such short supply that I had to order it), but it is some of the best sunscreen we've used. When it comes to sunscreen, I do NOT skimp and I love Blue Lizard!

                  It does run easily and is a bit thick, but it WORKS. And that is the most important thing. :-)

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  FAST delivery, in time for our trip to the beach! We lost our other container, couldn't find any in any stores, so ordered it...it arrived in plenty of time!
