Overall, this is a must-have for summer, because it makes touch-ups so easy and it STAYS ON, maybe too much (!). I usually put on some Neutrogena sunscreen before I go out to the pool, etc., and use this periodically to supplement. The fact that it is a very quick and easy aerosol spray is especially great because you're more likely to actually USE it after you've become really lazy laying out. Two things, though -- it stings if you've just shaved your legs, and you need to scrub extra hard in the shower to get it off, because it really sticks to you. I like to use a scrub afterwards. You will definitely not get burned using this product.

I bought this b/c I had some friends who raved about how easy it was to use. I thought about my back, and how I'm always struggling to reach my back while applying sunscreen. I also thought it would be great for my 2 year old, since it would be faster to apply. After I bought it, I got the thinking...I can't apply this indoors b/c it will get all over stuff. You're supposed to apply sunscreen before you go outside so I was already not thrilled. That was before I used it, and I realized that I hadn't thought this one through very well. I looked up some reviews on another website and a few people complained about it staining their clothes. That was good to know before our first app. So when it was time to use it, I applied it before putting my clothes on. I stood in my shower and sprayed it all over. I love the original coppertone scent, but when this stuff first comes out of the can it just stinks. I was gagging from the fumes, and my daughter didn't like the smell either. Once it dried it smelled nice. It's really hard to tell whether you have throuroughly covered yourself. I kept spraying b/c I wasn't sure if I had gotten every spot. I probably sprayed too much, but better to be safe than sorry. This stuff proabably won't last long. Once it dried, it felt sticky. The sticky feeling went away after awhile. I didn't put our clothes on until about 15 min. after application, just to be sure that we didn't stain our clothes. I think for future uses, we'll stick with lotion, but use the spray for hard to reach places like my back.

Permanently stains shower grout

By healthy tan

from Oldsmar, FL

Comments about Coppertone UltraGuard Sunscreen Continuous Spray, SPF 30, 6 fl oz:

Although the product is fine, beware WHERE you apply it. I thought it would be a good idea to spray it on in my shower before dressing to go poolside. After a beautiful afternoon of tanning, I came in to shower. My tile grout is dark orange. It was white. After apply shower cleaner spray, Tilex, and bleach, the stains remain. I just had the shower regrouted recently. I am so angry. Be careful where you apply!

I'm not sure if I just sprayed this too close or what, but it was so sticky and hard to get off. After 3 showers and a really gritty exfoliator, I still have patches of it on me that are slowly coming off like dried glue. It's convenient to put on, but not worth the sticky hassle afterward. Definitely not something I will use again.

This product is all about ease of application. Yes, it's expensive, but if you don't have a buddy to "do your back, it is a lifesaver. I love to snorkel, and my back would fry without this sunscreen! Use the cheaper stuff where you can reach, and save this for those hard to reach areas!!

This is what I've been waiting for in a spray sunscreen. It really does spray on evenly and is a snap to use. I was so impressed I'm about to try the kid's version for my 3-year-old.

Great product despite the price. Try to find it on sale if you can. No sunburns! My kids are in day camp during the summer and it's easy for them to apply without the mess or taking up too much time. Make sure you have plenty on hand, as you can go through it quickly.

By Anonymous

Comments about Coppertone UltraGuard Sunscreen Continuous Spray, SPF 30, 6 fl oz:

Our family goes through about a can of this sunscreen each week in the summer. While it used to take nearly an HOUR to get everyone prepared to go swimming or another outdoor activity, now it takes just a few minutes. The only drawback is the expense--since you go through it so quickly. We tried a cheaper "Banana Boat" continuous spray this summer, but it did not spray as nicely, and was WAY to sticky.
Overall, this is a great product for people who care about limiting UV exposure, but don't have a lot of time.

Excellent product. Worked really well on my kids ...no sunburns. However, it runs out quickly so make sure that you have several bottles if you have a large family.

This product doesn't smell too good, and is sticky. But overall, it protected my skin from the sun, and that's all that matters.

Comments about Coppertone UltraGuard Sunscreen Continuous Spray, SPF 30, 6 fl oz:

I love Coppertone sunblock--I've used the brand for almost 30 years. However, this spray has its pros and cons, and unfortunately it's not something I'd buy again. Pros: Sprays easily without any mess, dries quickly. Cons: 6 fl oz doesn't last long, had to spray several coats to feel like I was sufficiently covered. And I guess I missed a few key areas, like my shins. Ouch. The spray dries so quickly, it's hard to see where you've actually sprayed, so you spray more and more, and then a day later, you're out of sunblock. Not as efficient as I'd like. Next time, I'll try the pump spray instead.
