This sunscreen is not greasy, and doesn't smell funny. It also really does prevent sunburn and seems to be water-resistant as it claims. However, it doesn't smooth on well, so it takes longer to apply. Generally putting sunscreen on squirming kids is enough of a fight already...needing extra time to get enough on is an unnecessary challenge. On the other hand, the ingredients make it pretty safe compared to other suncreens...so it really depends on what you are after. Probably best for use on infants who aren't rushing off to dig in the sand.

with its very good rating from ewg.org (indicating its lack of harmful ingredients and its inclusion of effective ones), I knew I had to try this sunscreen. I swim outdoors for about an hour a day in the summer and have fair skin. Episencial has not allowed me to burn which is great, but I am getting a ton of freckles which is not so great. I wish it protected a bit more. The other good aspect, though, is it does rub in well with a little effort and doesn't make you look all white as some sunscreens do.

    Comments about Episencial Sunny Sunscreen SPF 35, Unscented, 2.7 fl oz:

    I carry this sunscreen wherever I go. It is great for my very active 5-year-old daughter, who loves to run around, swim, sweat and run through any water. She has sensitive skin. Brands like Neutrogena Baby and All Terrain made her break out in a rash. Sunology and Vanicream are incredibly greasy and sticky, which is unpleasant and just abhorrent at the beach with sand sticking all over your body. Badger and California Baby are very difficult to spread and neither of us like pulling and tugging on her skin. Sunscreen sticks are too difficult to spread and seem heavy.

    This is an overall sunscreen: easy to spread, long, solid protection, not greasy, no unpleasant scent, water-prrof, does not make you turn white, bottle never leaks and simply a complaint-free product. It seems like it was recently formulated to spread even easier! The ingredients are great and that is a must in my book.

    I use it on myself and every time a friend asks to borrow a smidge for their kid or themselves, they are all blown away and say they are going to stock up. Their kids have no complaints and that is just a God-send.

    I always try the new sunscreens that are highly-rated, but none can hold a candle to Episencial. I am very happy with it, which is close to impossible to accomplish.

      Comments about Episencial Sunny Sunscreen SPF 35, Unscented, 2.7 fl oz:

      Wonderful product! The only negative (which I don't even think is a negative) is that it is thick which may make it difficult for some to rub in especially on wiggling little ones. Like I said, I don't view it as a negative; you can see exactly where you have applied, but it doesn't leave the cakey white gunk like other baby sunscreen and a little goes a LONG way due to the consistency. I was hesitant to spend so much on sunscreen for my little guy, but we absolutely LOVE the product and are still on our first tube and have been using it all summer. Thanks for making a hands-down wonderful product, Episencial!

            After finding out that my son was allergic to many other sunscreens, I ended up trying Sunny Sunscreen. It is a lifesaver! It rubs in more easily than some of the other zinc/titanium sunscreens out there and no nano particles!

                  Love this sunscreen for my kids. My son has super sensitive skin and most sunscreens cause a rash for him. Not only does this not cause a rash, it's also effective! My hubby and son were out playing one day and hubby came back with a slight sunburn while my son was totally fine!

                    I have a 3 year old and a 10 month old. The oldest has very sensitive skin and the youngest has very fair skin. This works on both of them. The oldest gets rashes when I use just about anything else on him, but he's fine with this. Also, this is pretty light and doesn't make him sweat which he's prone to do. I've taken my fair skinned baby out during the middle of the day with this sunscreen on and you couldn't tell she'd ever been in the sun afterwards. I also use their face balm in the winter to protect their little cheeks and around their mouths. It's the only thing that works.

                      I love this sunscreen! It is nice and thick to provide good coverage and stays on even while my daughters play in the ocean for a long time. I love that it doesn't contain the chemicals that other brands do and I feel safer using this product on my young children as well as on my self & my husband.
