    My dermatologist will recommend only this brand because of the way it is formulated. He says that since using it my skin has become thicker, and he said that meant that the UVA protection was allowing my skin to grow collagen again. I am told I look 15 years younger than I am. The wrinkles are going away. I use it EVERY day. Rain or shine. Even if I'm staying inside.

    I am allergic to most creamy products and had to stop using the moisturizer version because of that. My husband prefers the Sport version, which leaves NO trace of its presence. The spray leaves a residue on the back of my wristwatch. But it comes off.

    I cannot tell you how many people have started using this product because of seeing my skin.

    While the sunblock itself was very good, it lasted me all of 2 days! I bought a can of it for a week long vacation, and only used it on my son, about 3 times a day - he's 3 years old, so I didn't use that much product. I'm also not one of those people who needs to cover every inch in layers. I thought it spilled and bought another can at the hotel - which also lasted 2 days.

        I bought this sunscreen because I trust all reviews. However I don't understand why review is so good. This spray remained stain white on your skin and it's washed easily and don't think it's effective. Will not buy again this product

          Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Kids Instant Dry Mist Sunscreen, SPF 50, 6 fl oz:

          I love the Ocean Potion brand, but it is SO HARD to find in stores! I just happened to find this at a convenience store when I was running low on sunscreen while on vacation. I wasn't the biggest fan of spray-on SPF, but it was all they had, and I'm an Ocean Potion junkie anyway, so I bought it. First of all, I love the fruity scent! It has an orangey top note with other citrusy scents, which is different from the usual OP orange creamsicle scent (which I also love), but it's light and not overpowering. It is definitely a mist and not a heavy spray, which I hope helps conserve it since the sprays seem to go faster than lotion. And since it is hard to make sure you're getting good coverage with sprays (how often do you see half your spray flying away into the wind?), I spray this on my hands then apply it all over. It's light and *non-greasy*, and I think it does a good job with sun protection as I've yet to burn (or feel like I'm really burning) while using it.

          I just have one complaint keeping me from a 5-star rating, and that's that I find it hard to spray. Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but I have to press really hard to get it to spray, which is difficult because of the angle at which I have to hold it, especially to my arms. I have to use two fingers and all my might to get a stream going. So perhaps they need to redesign the nozzle, but it's certainly nothing that would keep me from purchasing this again and again.

          One last thing: this product is oxybenzone-free, so if you subscribe to the theories that suggest that oxybenzone is harmful (synthetic estrogen free radicals), then you get the benefit of sun protection minus the oxybenzone.

          Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Kids Instant Dry Mist Sunscreen, SPF 50, 6 fl oz:

          I use this sunscreen for my daughter. Kids don't want to stand still long enough for a lotion sunscreen, so this works great. With all the press lately about kids and oxybenzone, I'm glad to see this year's version is now oxybenzone-free. Personally, I don't love the feel of a spray on sunscreen, but it works great for kids that are in the sun and water constantly.

              I have 3 very fair skinned children. We went to Charleston for spring break after being out of the sun for 6 months. We spent days on the beach with this sun screen and no one got burnt! And it has a wonderful smell!

                  I use this spray on my son everyday before school and whenever we go swimming or to the park. It has a nice fruity smell. It goes on clear and dries really quick and not greasy at all. But watch out when you are spraying it close to white fabric. It stains the fabric yellow.

                  i agree with the other reviews - love this product and use it every day with my very fair skin. it does leave a bit of a "coating" on your skin, which is the way it adheres since it's not a lotion. i use it instead of lotions because it is so easy to use and goes on so fast, plus your hands aren't covered in lotion to get in your eyes.
                  the other brand sprays like this that i tried were very strongly scented and bothered my sensitive nose, and i hate the traditional smell of sunscreen (tropical). this is a bit fruity but the scent disappears quickly.
