I am start to having horrible allergy this year,
suffering itchy dry red skin and bit of eczema.
I normally break out to most of sunblock.
This year I couldn't use Coppetone, Eucerin.It's became itchy and break my skin out.
Badger was ok but it's too greasy and very thick.Make my face all white.
Vanicream's sunscreen are much more lighter than Badger, once you warm up on your hand and gently apply,it's not greasy at all to me.No itchiness,wait 5 or 10 min and it's even feel's much lighter!
I wrote this review for the people suffer and spend so much money to find a sunscreen just simply not break out your skin..
It's worth it!!!!!:)

I have very sensitive skin and can use only Vanicream Lite Lotion and Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream for my daily moisturizer for face and body. I love them both and have used them for years.

I purchased the Vanicream sunscreen for a trip to Florida and was very disappointed. While the sun protection was satisfactory and I had no adverse reaction to it, it's very greasy and uncomfortable to wear. My cover-up stuck to me, the sand stuck to me and I felt like I was leaving a greasy stain on anything my skin touched, and no, I wasn't over-applying. The consistency is very thick and requires a lot of work to get it evenly applied. I might as well have purchased a tube of zinc oxide and used that.

At the same time, I purchased some Burt's Bees sunscreen with hemp and some Alba Botanica Natural Sunscreen with Greet Tea SPF 30. I did not like the Burt's Bees for the same reasons: greasy and thick, plus, it smelled bad. I ended up loving the Alba Botanica so much that it's now my daily sunscreen. I mix it with my Vanicream Lotion or Cream and apply it to body and face after my shower with no adverse reaction.

    Comments about Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 30, 4 oz:

    This is one of the VERY few inexpensive but truly 'mineral-only' sunscreens available. Put it on when you rise & wait to apply makeup 'til later & you'll have NO problem with the white-cast the cream leaves. It will sink in to a dewy canvas for your foundation. I can't afford to apply expensive lotions twice daily, so I use them at night. This is my daytime moisturizer & my skin looks great at age 65. The SUN is the greatest threat to skin,so using sunscreen is your #1 defense. ONLY the #30 in this brand has only zinc/titanium. Their other sunscreens ("Sport,' etc.) now have octinoxate, etc., which is awful. I love this stuff & slather it on my face & my forearms daily no matter what. I love it.

        Great product. We found this 30 SPF is more effective than the other sunscreens vanicream makes. It's especially effective for people who are fair skinned.

            Comments about Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 30, 4 oz:

            I have very sensitive skin and find most sunscreen products to irritate my skin. Titanium dioxide seems to work just fine. While this product is quite thick in texture and sits on top of your skin, it does the job of preventing sun burn. The texture is a fine trade off for me as it is rare to find something that my skin can tolerate. I use this for outdoor activities and use a Shiseido sunscreen daily for my face. I will say that I bought the Vanicream sport version and seem to break out in a rash on my arms...it may be that I am allergic to the octinoxate that is in the sport version and not in this one.

            Comments about Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 30, 4 oz:

            It is very difficult to spread over my skin, especially on my face. The zinc in it is too thick and sits on my skin making my skin look very white and unreal. I bought the 50 SPF first and then the 30 SPF, thinking the 30 SPF would be easier to spread. However, the spreading problem is with both of them. I'm very disappointed, because I spent ~$20 on them.

              I have dry, sensitive skin and need hypoallergenic skin products. This seemed perfect. Used it for a while on my arms but found it too drying -- not a good result for me!

              This is a great brand, I wish the formula were a little different.

                      I, and my children, have very sensitive skin and cannot use products with any fragrance, even masking fragrance. This sunscreen came recommended by a dermatologist and after using a few samples of it I bought some. It is wonderful -- not sticky, goes on easily, and offers good protection from the hot Florida sun!

                      Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 30

                       – The best sunscreen is often the one that you will actually use. Some people shy away from sunscreen because they don’t like the smell or feel of the product. Dermatologist recommended Vanicream provides superior protection in a formula that’s gentle and pleasant on the skin. Vanicream offers broad spectrum protection to help safeguard your skin against damage created by the sun’s ultraviolet rays, giving you a high level of protection.

                      Quality Protection for Your Skin with a Broad Spectrum Formula



                      Whether you are out in the sun all day or just for a few hours, too much exposure from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can damage your skin. This damage can cause premature aging and may lead to some types of cancer. Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 30 works to filter the harmful rays while still being gentle enough for sensitive skin.

                      Water-Resistant Formulas for Swimming



                      If you are planning a day at the beach or pool, you’ll want to take advantage of a water-resistant sunscreen product that continues working during periods of swimming or sweating. Many sunscreen formulas wash off in water. Since Vanicream Sunscreen is water-resistant, it is the ideal type of formula for swimmers who want to keep their skin safe from the sun's rays.

                      Vanicream Sunscreen Is Dermatologist Recommended



                      While dermatologists usually recommend that everyone use sunscreen to help minimize sun damage, experts also advise choosing a product that you’ll want to use every day. Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 30 is water-resistant, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores or cause breakouts), and free of chemical additives such as fragrance, dyes and parabens. It’s ideal for people who often experience irritation with traditional sunscreen formulas.
