    I have been using Vanicream SPF 50+ for two months now and been very happy with it. My kids and I are outdoors a lot espcecially this summer. We have dark complexion to begin with and do not want to be any darker. This sunscreen does what it supposed to do. It absorbs into the skin and lasts longer than other sunscreens we've used before. It also applies evenly on our skin. Definitely water proof and that's important in my buying decision. I would definitely recommend this product!

    We have used Vanicream 60 for nearly 9 years. We live in CO and are a family of 3 fair-complexion red-heads who spend a lot of time outside. We purchase 25+ tubes of Vanicream 60 every year. People have always said to me "It takes skill to keep a kid that white". I always respond "No, just ample amounts of Vanicream 60 applied regularly". My son who is almost 9 spends lots of time outside and is on a swim team every summer. He has NEVER had a sunburn (or even a line from his swim suit) until we began using the 50+. This new product is inferior compared to the old 60. It leaves a white film and never rubs completely in no matter how long, or how well you rub it in. It also is not water resistant and sweats off. We have not used anything but the Vanicream 60, but are now on the hunt for a new go-to sunscreen as I will not be buying anymore of the 50+.

      I am fairskinned and have Rosacea. I wear a hat when outside for several hours. The Vanicream 50+ or 60 Keeps my face from breaking out in papules and pustules which are very painful.

      Comments about Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 50+, 4 oz:

      I had to switch to 50 SPF because they don't make 60 anymore. Turned out just fine. I have two young children who are light skin( very pale). One has very sensitive skin that other sunscreens irratate him. This brand allows both my kids to be at camp all day or the beach with coming home with a burn, of course being reapplyed. I like it being mostly chemical free. Only down side if not rubbed in well leaves a white shade but I don't care as long as my kids are protected.

      Great Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin

      Comments about Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 50+, 4 oz:

      Great Product for our child who has severely sensitive skin and multiple allergies to various oils and creams. Has an spf of 50 and protects against UVA and UVB, this leaves us confident that he will be protected and that he is getting the benefits of a paraben-free, zinc based product. Would highly recommend.

        Didn't get a burn, but got a rash instead. I use the Vanicream Sport SPF 35 with no problems other than I need to reapply more often than the directions recommend.

              Sadly, I have to agree with the other long-time users of Vanicream that this new formulation stinks. Very hard to rub in and once it is rubbed in it is impossible to wash off. It separates and becomes watery in the tube and even has a funky smell. Can we get the old Vanicream back? Pretty Please?

                  I have used the vanicream all strengths for a few years now and have been very happy. I am 43 and I have sensitive skin and vanicream was the first sunscreen that I found that didn't break out my skin. However, now they have changed for the formula...the sunscreen goes on smoother and is not as thick or greasy feeling, but it leaves a dry and white film on your skin. Skin now looks dry rather than moist and supple. Unfortunately I will have to be on the hunt for a new sunscreen :(

                    Great sunscreen! I like the Vanicream SPF 50+ even better than the SPF 60. The SPF 50+ is not greasy, and contains an antioxidant. This is an improved formula for sure.

                          I have been using the old SFP60 for years and loved it so much that I recommended to everyone who asked me about my nice skin. Unfortunately, the manufacturer discontinued the SPF60 and replaced it with this SPF50. They changed the formula and the result is atrocious. Should they test it first!

                                  Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 50+

                                   – A good broad spectrum sunscreen is one of the most important items you can pack for a day outdoors. Some people with sensitive skin, however, find that certain sunscreens can cause irritation and redness. Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 50+ is specially formulated to protect your skin without potentially irritating additives, so it is the perfect choice for individuals with sensitive skin.

                                  Long-Lasting Protection



                                  In addition to the immediate discomfort of a sunburn, unprotected UV exposure greatly increases your risk of developing skin cancer in the future. To minimize this risk, it's important to use a quality sunscreen whenever you will be spending time outside. Vanicream Sunscreen is effective at protecting against both UVA and UVB rays. Its rating of SPF 50+ means that it filters out more than 98 percent of this harmful radiation, and it is among the most protective sunscreens you can find. Vanicream meets the maximum water resistance level currently allowed by the FDA, and it will keep you protected in the water for up to 80 minutes. As with all sunscreens, you should make sure to reapply whenever you get out of the water--especially after towel drying. Even without water exposure, you should still reapply sunscreen at least once every two hours to ensure maximum protection.

                                  Increased Comfort



                                  No one wants to use a sunscreen that is difficult to apply and makes you feel miserable while you wear it. Vanicream Sunscreen is formulated to be comfortable and easy to use. The non-greasy lotion is easy to spread all over your face and body. Free of dyes, fragrances, parabens, lanolin, and other additives, it is intended for people with sensitive skin to help minimize irritation. The product's non-comedogenic formula won't clog your pores or cause blackheads, so you can feel free to use it throughout your vacation without worrying about breakouts.
