    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.

        I do not have sensitive skin nor does my daughter but this sunscreen made us both break out with rashes. I will now stay away from Coppertone sunscreens.

          This is a great product for everyday use! It is fragrance free and does great all over the body. I use it under bare minerals. It is a bit thick at first but rubs in nicely. It takes 5 min for the white to turn clear. It is a wonderful product for head to toe protection for sensitive skin.

            I love this product. I first purchsed it at [...]. Now I buy it in bulk for year round use. I use it from head to toe! It like all sunscreens need to be rubbed in but once you rub it in and it sits on your skin for 5/10 minutes it becomes clear! I love the stuff! I also recommend Solar sense spf 50 stick for face and lip!!!!!

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

            My dermatolagist recommended layering both chemical (what is in the sprays) and the more tradition Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. This product has both! It is hard to rub in and leaves a white film, it also only comes in a relatively large bottle, but it provides the layering protection (not just UVA/UVB) in one application. AND it doesn't smell nasty like the other metal oxide products I found and is not nearly as expensive. All in all, the pros greatly out weigh some small cons

                      This sunscreen is very gentle. It has not irritated my kids who have eczema or my very sensitive skin. It is not greasy but is moisturizing. I am very fair skinned and have found this sunscreen to be very protective on the beach. At first it does rub on white, but after a few minutes it absorbs into the skin, leaving just a little whitish cast. Overall, I think it is a great product and like it better than formulas that contain just zinc oxide or titanium oxide because it has a higher spf and is waterproof and not as drying on the skin.

                        This product I used on my niece and I could not believe she is so fair, that after all day outside no redness at all. It is a trust worthy product that is simple and effective. The ingredients thankfully do not contain the SPF ingredient her and I are allergic to, so we both use it now. For myself it feels like a shield of armour againist the harmful rays and for my skin that is what I want. I would definitely say try especially to protect those we are looking out for the children who are unaware of the suns damage.

                            This sunblock is very hard to rub into the skin. It leaves a white film on the skin it lays on top and dosen't absorb well. Other coppertone products are much better than this one.
