For ALL the negative reviews...

All I have to say is that every negative review, I THINK that these people either did not use the product as described, apply 20 minutes before sun exposure and did not re-apply it every 2 hours OR the lotion they had was an OLD bottle of lotion and the sunscreen lost it's potency, and THAT is most likely why they got a sunburn.
People who use ANY lotion with SPF 30 should NOT get a sunburn, NO ONE who uses SPF 30 should NOT get a sunburn UNLESS they might be allergic to the sunscreens in the lotion, OR they might have had sun poisoning in their past, or are taking medications making them extremely sensitive to the sun. SPF 30 and NO ONE should get a sunburn, and any lotion that is higher than SPF 30, like SPF 45, 50, 70, I have read that anything above SPF 30 is practically the SAME as using SPF 30 ( with the exception for babies and children ).
This is a GREAT lotion to get a nice base tan, and then the last 2-3 days of your vacation, if you want, switch to SPF 15 to get a darker tan. This lotion has a nice scent to it. It is water proof and sweat proof too !
If you're not on vacation and work in the sun all day long, I would say use SPF 30 everyday then IF you want to get darker, if you want, then switch to SPF 15 but whatever the reason for being in the sun, be it that you are on vacation, or work in the sun all day or even at home in your back yard, a person should use a product that has a minimum SPF 15. Using any product with a sunscreen less than SPF 15 and you can put yourself at risk for pre-mature aging of the skin and even skin cancer.
SO ALWAYS USE SUNSCREEN !!!

I bought this product because of the price and other user reviews. I play tennis in the sun nearly every day and it does seem to work just fine as far as sun protection. My big problem with it is the awful smell. It smells like bubble gum which is something I do not want to spread all over my skin!
I guess that is just one person's opinion and someone else might like it just fine. I prefer a "beachy" aroma!

          Comments about Ocean Potion Suncare Protect & Nourish Sunscreen, SPF 30, 8 fl oz:

          I use Ocean Potion first thing in the morning, and my skin is protected all day long. I begin with water exercise in the morning, then gardening and yard work later in the day. It smells great, and it feals great on my skin. It is non-greasy, and it gives my skin a healthy glow that people comment on. My dermatologist recommended it several years ago, and I've been a user ever since. I've told all my friends about it!

              I generally hate sunscreen - its sticky and thick. This is a nice light sunscreen with a pleasant scent that works very well. In addition, it doesn't have any oxybenzone - a chemical known to be harmful to humans. Great stuff!!!!

                    I find the Ocean Potion does a good job protecting me during my noon runs in the sun. It rubs in well and stays on well while I'm sweating. I've had no issues with reactions. Another brand my family has tried rubs off when you touch something, so I don't use that. I also love the scent. A friend asked me about it and I told him I got it drugstore.com. He promptly came to the web site and made a purchase.
