    Comments about EltaMD UV Lotion, Broad Spectrum SPF 30, 8 oz:

    I was surprised when I received this to see that it now comes in a 7 oz airless pump which you can see at the company's website: http://eltamd.com/product/uv-lotionbroad-spectrum-spf-30/

    The lotion itself is still lightweight and silky so it's easy to rub in like a typical body lotion. I'm not thrilled with the smaller bottle, but this still remains one of my favorite sunscreens.

        I use the board spectrum SPF 30 on face, neck and chest. This was first recommended to me by my dermatologist, which they carry in their office. I found online for much cheaper. After a few months noticed that the winkles around my eyes and flabby skin on neck have gotten smaller. Does not feel greasy on face. Great product!

        Comments about EltaMD UV Lotion, Broad Spectrum SPF 30, 8 oz:

        I started using this product about a year ago. I am fair-skinned and a few people close to me have been diagnosed with skin cancer. Also, I'm kinda scared of getting old and wrinkled. I decided I wanted to start using a sunscreen on a daily basis. After doing some research, I learned that most sunscreens that you can buy at drugstores and grocery stores, while great for preventing sunburns, are frighteningly ineffective against the rays that cause skin cancer and wrinkles. So, I started sampling products that received solid ratings from the Environmental Working Group ("EWG"), a non-profit, consumer watchdog agency that investigates consumer products like this. My problem was that most sunscreens that are safe, effective and stable contain ingredients that cause a white, pasty, chalky residue. I've tried lots of stuff too. Badger, Aubrey Organics, Coppertone Pure and Simple, Johnson & Johnson--just about every product with a 1 or 2 EWG rating that wasn't crazy-expensive. All of them left that residue. I just put up with it for a while, thinking it was worth it for what I was doing for my skin. I applied sunscreen daily to my whole upper body, to ensure that my arms, my shoulders, neck and chest are all treated since parts of them are sometimes exposed (short sleeves, tank tops, v- and scoop neck blouses, etc). Anyway, my bras and clothes started getting a buildup of that stuff that wouldn't wash out, and, since it takes SO LONG to rub that stuff in, I found myself increasingly skipping that part of my beauty routine. I started trying products with a 3 EWG rating (since I wasn't wearing my chalky 1s and 2s and 3 is better than nothing). That's when I stumbled onto Elta MD. This stuff leaves NO white residue and glides on great. It works great, too. I used it on vacation to Disneyland and my super-fair skin never burned. Plus, it's light, absorbs well, and it doesn't smell like sunscreen. (With all the white chalky stuff, people always asked me why I smelled like sunscreen). It really doesn't have much a scent which is nice, so it won't interfere with your favorite purfume. It does not clog my pores. I use it on my upper body and use EltaMD's UV Daily Sheer Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen, on my face and neck. I use both every day and I am equally happy with each product. Because of the cost, 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. Normally I wouldn't spend this much money on a product, but this one place I don't feel the need to cut corners.

          Comments about EltaMD UV Lotion, Broad Spectrum SPF 30, 8 oz:

          My husband and I used this sunscreen during a recent week-long vacation on Maui and it worked great. Before switching to chemical-free sunscreen, we loved Ocean Potion because it rubbed in well and felt like regular lotion more than sunscreen. We were extremely excited to find that EltaMD shared the same performance characteristics of our old favorite. The 8oz bottle provided us 5 full body applications each. The pump made it super easy and fast to apply. It rubbed in well without leaving any white residue, was truly unscented and felt like regular lotion more than sunscreen. We were excited to find that we had less redness/sunburn using EltaMD than we did when we used to use traditional chemical sunscreen. It is pricey, but it works and has a low toxicity rating according to EWG which makes the pricetag worth it for me.
