As a fair-skinned person, sunscreen is a must for me. But with my sensitive skin, most of the brands I've tried make me break out. Blue Lizard for sensitive skin uses only zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, so I have no problem with breakouts or rashes! I use it everyday - even though it feels a bit heavy, it actually makes a great base for the new mineral powder foundations on my face. It has no offensive odor. My only complaint is the bottle: over time, the paint on the label starts to come off on my fingers! I transferred the product into my own lotion dispenser when this started happening. Also, the price is a bargain compared to other "natural" sunscreens.

I am always looking for sunscreens containing zinc oxide. This was priced right and had the ingredients I was looking for. ONly problem is, this stuff is very hard to apply! I wear sunscreen on my face daily, and my habit is to apply it first thing, after I wash my face in the AM. even if my skin is a bit damp, this stuff will just smear and leave a ghostly cast and will NOT absorb into my skin. So I actually tote it around and will apply it at lunch before i go outside for a walk (and when my skin is drier). This has no odor but I would say it is a bit greasy. I have since used it only for my body and not on my face. The bottle is kind of fun since it changes color when exposed to UV/regular sunlight. Other than that, there's nothing special to say about this.

        easy to use and apply. absorbs quickly without leaving a heavy white pastey look . non comedogenic. great to use under mineral powder since it provides the best SPF compared to other products.

          I have a toddler, and wanted to be super extra definitely sure that I was protecting him from the sun as much as humanly possible during our one week vacation - I myself tan nicely as long as I have sunblock on, but if I miss a spot, it turns red and peels - he seems to have the same type of skin, and I do not want him red and peeling!

          This product worked very well - but so did the neutrogena baby sunbock I bought last year when I couldn't get my hands on this stuff in time for that vacation.

          So in summary - it's good stuff, but there's no reason not to pay less for one of the other brands.

          I used it as well on my face (same as I did last time with the neutrogena stuff), and I got the same results as last year - it's not that it doesn't work or isn't great, I just don't see the benefit of paying more for this!

          Hope that helps!

            Comments about Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+, 5 fl oz:

            I use this stuff every day, alone and under make-up. It goes on very rich feeling, absorbs into the skin completely, and I only notice a little zinc 'whiteness' while it's still sinking into my skin. I used to be one of those people who didn't go out in the sun, not anymore. I do not want my skin to age due to sunlight. I only wish I'd found it sooner.

            You probably already know this, but Blue Lizard Sensitive is listed as the #1 sunscreen by dermatologists. I had Fraxel lazer on my face, and my dermo had me use his line's sunscreen post-procedure. He ended telling me to use Blue Lizard Sensitive because he bought the formulary from BL for his sunscreen (SkinMedica Environmental Defense, $40 for 3 oz). I think he figured I wouldn't consistently use that expensive of a product (and he was correct).

            I'm very critical of skin products, but he was right, the BL Sensitive is the best sunblock/screen on the market. Uses physical block instead of those chemical-type sun blocking agents that need to be re-applied because they break down in sunlight. I'm not sure, but I think the non-sensitive BL uses some of the chemical-type.

            It's awesome that you don't have to keep re-applying this stuff when you are wearing make-up. (I suppose if you sweat or rub your face, you'd want to re-apply.)

            The only problem is that it's hard to find in local drugstores, seems to only appear seasonally. Very happy I found drugstore.com.

              I've been using this sunscreen for everyday use, on my face and neck only (because that's where my skin is most sensitive). This is the only sunscreen I've found that doesn't sting on my face. It is fragrance free (and doesn't smell bad), and doesn't have any chemical sunscreens. Because it is only physical barrier sunscreens, it does go on quite thick and white, but it soaks in after a few minutes. I do feel slightly greasy with it on sometimes (in humid FL), so I use oil absorbing papers and just gently blot my face, and that takes care of that!
              I wish this stuff came in a bigger bottle.

              Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+

               – Everybody loves to soak up the sun, but your skin needs protection from the damage that sunburn can cause. Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+ is ideally suited for daily use on sensitive skin, and the bottle even changes color when UV light is present.

              Sensitive but tough



              If you need a gentle but truly effective sunscreen recommended by dermatologists, Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+ may be just right for you.

              Free of fragrances, parabens and chemical sunscreens, this specially formulated product from Blue Lizard can be used daily under makeup or smoothed over your whole body to keep you protected against UVA and UVB rays. It is water resistant and designed to stay on but easy to reapply if needed or after swimming or a hard workout.

              The clever color-changing bottle will alert you to the presence of UV light and remind you to cover up and apply sunscreen. It is a fun way to teach kids about safety in the sun.

              What is inside?



              Each bottle of sunscreen contains 10% zinc oxide for protection from the UVA spectrum. Zinc oxide is well known for helping to prevent skin irritation for those with delicate skin. A patented formula called Z-Cote Zinc Oxide is used in Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+, so you can get the maximum coverage of the mineral on your body and the best defense against the sun.

              5% titanium dioxide is also present, and along with zinc oxide, the formula helps reflect UV radiation away from the skin. With SPF 30+, Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive helps ensure that your skin is protected against UVB rays. Reapply regularly, especially after towel drying, swimming, or sweating.

              Enjoy the outdoors



              Developed in sunny Australia and currently manufactured in the United States, Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive, SPF 30+ is a great way to look after your skin so you can get outside and enjoy the sun all year round.
