Although I am always looking for a bargain, sunscreen is not an area I will compromise. My dermatologist recommended applying Blue Lizard sunscreen every 45 minutes while in the sun. I like the sensitive formula, as I have occular rosea, and the regular formula irritated the area around my eyes. I have no problems with the sensitive formula. This sunscreen is thick. When finished applying, you should see a white film. (This ensures you have applied enough product for protection.) The whiteness disappears fairly quickly. It's so important to buy sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection. The cheaper sunscreens just don't offer as good protection.

Use on face, neck & other exposed skin for golf and tennis which equates to long hours in the sun. I am outdoors daily & use the product. However, it is very drying to the skin. My legs were parched after washing off and my facial skin became rough and unable to accept makeup well. Product must be re-applied frequently (ev 2 hours for me when I can feel my skin burning from the sun). Washing off is difficult and needs to scrubbed vigorously with washcloth; otherwise the skin continues to have a white cast to it. Disappointed it did not prevent darkening and blotchiness of my skin. Purchased this product as an alternative to chemical-based sunscreens (I break out in rashes). Am seeking other chemical-free alternatives.

I love blue lizard. Once it's applied I can relax knowing my kids won't burn even with hours of swimming. I can also relax because I'm not loading them with chemicals while they play.

    Comments about Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+, Fragrance Free, 8.75 fl oz:

    My daughters all have sensitive skin. (One of my girls actually has eczema.) After trying various "sensitive skin" sunscreens with no luck, I found reviews for Blue Lizard online. I was hesitant to try it because of the price, but now it's the only sunscreen I buy for my daughters. The other sunscreens caused rashes and burned their skin (especially after repeated use on vacation). We can use Blue Lizard all week at the beach and it doesn't irritate their delicate skin. It also does a good job of protecting from sunburn. We reapply every hour or so. You do have to get used to the thick, greasy texture but it absorbs quickly. I would recommend Blue Lizard to anyone with sensitive skin or children.

      My kids have very sensitive skin. Other sunscreens give them rashes. This one is the only that doesn't and it provides great protection. Applies smoothly -- we get adequate protection by applying small amounts (too much and it can get messy -- white smearing).

        I bought this sunscreen to use for my whole family. We do a lot of boating and swimming so I wanted something that will last and rub in quickly. My kids have both used it and really like how easy it was to apply and I was impressed with the protection. I know it is more than other sunscreens but worth the price. This was also listed on the EWG website as one of the sunscreens they recommend for 2013.

            Comments about Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+, Fragrance Free, 8.75 fl oz:

            I was very happy with this product for my two sons, ages 6 and 4. They both have sensitive skin and have developed rashes from other sunblocks, even ones that claim to be for children/sensitive skin, (i.e. coppertone, banana boat). We used it all summer at the beach and swimming pool and it offered great protection. Not one sunburn all summer - what more can you ask for?? Yes it's pricey but when it comes to sun protection you get what you pay for. I'd never buy anything else.

            My daughter is allergic to several sunscreens. This was recommend by our Dermatologist after being treated for a Spitz-Nevus. We had no allergic reactions and no sunburns. She recently went to the beach and played in the sand, ocean and the pool. Until this year she always came home with a sunburn and I am excited for once we are sunburn free.

              This is the only sunscreen that has ever worked for me and I have tried everything with varying degrees of SPF. Blue Lizard covers great and stays on even after swimming in the ocean. It is is also super cool when the bottle turns blue!

              I will never buy another brand of sunscreen.....can't wait to try other blue lizard products. GREAT product.....I can finally be outside and enjoy the sun!!!! :-)

                Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Sport Zinc Oxide Formula

                 – When you're enjoying the outdoors, you need strong sunscreen to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Applying and reapplying sunscreen can be a hassle, but you can't always trust that the product is durable enough to withstand sweat, water, and more. Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Sport Zinc Oxide Formula is a highly durable and equally effective sunscreen that reduces the risk of sunburn and skin damage.

                Serious Testing with Impressive Results



                When Blue Lizard was designing this zinc oxide-based sunscreen, it tested the product in an intense environment: whirlpool water. Results showed that the product could withstand 240 minutes in this powerful water, far beyond the FDA's standard of 80 minutes in still water. These impressive results indicate just how powerful and effective this formula is against the sun.

                Skin-Protecting Benefits



                Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Sport Zinc Oxide Formula is a high-protection, water-resistant sunscreen. Zinc oxide provides broad spectrum protection against UV rays in a gentle formula that is generally well-tolerated by even those with sensitive skin. More specifically, Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen uses Z-Cote Zinc Oxide, which features micronizing and coating zinc oxide that creates an optimally protective barrier on your skin.

                All Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen products are free of chemical sunscreens, parabens, fragrances, oils, and propylene glycol. These formulas rely on sensitive--yet equally effective--ingredients to keep your skin well protected from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays. Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while caring for your skin.
