    With two children having very sensitive, exzema-prone skin, we are very limited in what sunscreens we can use. Anything with Avobenzone gives them rashes, so we need to stick with zinc or titanium-based lotions. I was having luck with the new Neutrogena sensitive and baby suncreens, but they're so darn expensive for 3 ounces. I saw this, and it's our new favorite. Yes, it's got a bit of that physical block white cast, but it's quality protection. They're the least-tanned kids on the block! :) Also rates well on the EWG's Skin Deep database for safety and effectiveness.

    I'll be copying this review verbatim to several other sunscreens because I tried so many, and they all turned out the same--effective, but unsuitable for daily use due to a chalky white residue that would not fully rub in. Over a year ago, I decided I wanted to protect myself from cancer and wrinkles by incorporating sunscreen into my daily beauty routine. This product works and gets a great rating from the Environmental Working Group. However, I needed something I could use on a daily basis. This product is heavy and leaves a pasty, chalky white residue that stains your clothes with daily use. Also, because it takes so long to rub in (and you can never rub it in completely), I found myself increasingly skipping it, which totally defeated my skin cancer and wrinkle prevention purpose. I ultimately landed on EltaMD UV Lotion SPF 30+ Full Body Sunscreen for daily use on my upper body and EltaMD's UV Daily Sheer Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen for daily use on my face and neck. Because of the cost of those two products, I still keep around some of the cheaper, 1 and 2-rated chalky stuff for pool/beach days, outdoor concerts, or other times when I don't care so much about what I look like or need to apply it multiple times. But for daily use, Elta MD is the way to go. So yes, I would recommend this product, but only for heavy use days, and not daily use.

      Comments about Coppertone Water Babies Pure & Simple, Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50, 8 fl oz:

      As I read a article about different sunscreens and the differences between "physical" and "chemical" sunscreen, I decided to bought this "physical" one as my old "chemical" one makes my already bad skin even worse. The only con is that it takes a little bit longer for it "absorb" but that totally tolerable.

      It has almost the same ingredients as "Coppertone Sensitive Skin Suncreen Lotion, SPF 50", but this one is bigger in size.(I really like the color of the sensitive skin one, the package of both of them are different from the picture online.)

        Comments about Coppertone Water Babies Pure & Simple, Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50, 8 fl oz:

        Spreads fairly easily, rubs in reasonably well. Still shows some white, but way less than most mineral based sunscreens I've tried, and I've tried many. Environmental Working Group rates this pretty good for safety, a 2 I think, but everything I've tried that they give a 1 to has been unusable because they are way too white, some like mime-face makeup. This is the best I've tried that is easily available. It is a lot more expensive than chemical-based sunscreens, but reasonably priced for a mineral sunscreen.

                I use this sunscreen for both myself and my kids (none of which are babies.) Being closer to the sun than other areas of the country and having fair skin, I'm always careful not to get burned. This product stays on a long time, even in the water. And it doesn't contain Oxybenzone like most other sunscreens. (If you haven't read about why you shouldn't use Oxybenzone, look it up.) I recommened it for everyone - not just babies.
