Can Use on Kids Safely
by Courtney

I use this sunscreen on myself and my kids, who have very sensitive skin, and it never seems to irritate their skin. It seems like this needs reapplication a little more frequently when in water than say, Water Babies, but I still highly recommend this.

Pricey but Good
by Carol C.

I used this last summer on vacation, my sister loaned me hers to share all week. I like the way it is absorbed into the skin - no tacky feel or slick coating. The down side is that I think it may wear off quickly. After a dip in the pool, I lay in the sun a bit and got pink faster than I expected, so maybe you need to reapply it more often than some of the sticky/tacky ones. It seems a bit pricey, which is why I gave it only a 3.5. I may buy some before I visit this year - but am not sure yet.

My shield from the sun
by Regina

Living in California with very fair skin can be a dangerous combination. I love this product because it is water resistant, so I don't have to re-apply all the time. It also stays in place while we are sweating and exercising. I have never gotten a sun burn in the past 2 summers of using this product.

Works great - a little high in price
by Amy

I love trying all the products that Arbonne has to offer. So when we were getting ready to head to the beach I decided to try this product. I loved the way that it felt as I applied it to my skin - it did not have the greasy feel that so many sun screens seem to have. It also had a very pleasant smell. It worked really well - my whole family, including my 2 year old, wore this lotion and it worked well on all of us. I felt like it stayed in place for longer than cheaper store bought lotions, but it is a little pricey. But if you are going to the beach and your skin is not used to that exposure of sun then I feel like this is a great investment. Great for your trip to be sure you stay comfortable throughout the entire trip. However, I probably won't use it for everyday use in the yard through summer unless I have some left from vacation.

Excellent skin protection
by Joyce

I live in Florida during the winter. Last year, I was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous mole so I had to start taking skin care and prevention seriously. I began with normal every day sunscreen and had a variety of sensitive skin reactions to them. My palms kept peeling. So I switched to Arbonne, and have been very happy with this product. It has spf 30, which is the minimum I use now, and I never feel greasy. It worked ok in the pool, but I had to reapply a lot more frequently. I also liked that it did not "roll" off of me when I touched my own skin. I hate that "coated in wax" feeling some sunscreens have and this one did not do that to me. Very happy with it and one bottle lasts quite a long time, even though I use it every day down here.

Good BUT Pricey.
by Kas

I found this sunscreen to keep me from getting sunburn and I have very fair skin. I got this as a gift from a family member when I was going on vacation and had no idea how expensive it was at the time. It did stay on in the water and through sand volleyball and I didn't feel the need to re-apply every 45 minutes like some sunscreens suggest when in the water. I do not, however, like the price tag. I am a "starving college student" type and I am not really willing to spend almost $30 on sunscreen when I live somewhere it's not sunny all year round and part of the bottle would go to waste. If someone had money to spend, I would suggest it, but if you are trying to be thrifty, I would stick with something more reasonably priced, it will probably work just as well.

Love it
by Alex Grossman

Being a half Irish, half German guy, I would say I'm pretty fair and easy to burn. Sunblock is vital to my existence in Florida. I love the beach and love going there, but I obviously don't want to get burned. Damage control is great I've never gotten burned since I started using this stuff even if I want to go jump in for a swim!

This does the job!
by acmccollom

I love this stuff! I'm constantly at the beach and this product has, by far, the longest staying power of any of the water-resistant sunblocks I've used. I don't have to go straight from the water to the bottle to apply more.

Controlling the Damage!
by Lana

Let me be the first one to say that I love being outside in the sun. As an obvious victim for sun damage, I was excited to try this product because it includes Parsol 1789, a premium ingredient often not found in the low-end brands. I loved the fact that the product was water resistant while providing me with utmost SPF protection. This was my sunscreen for the whole summer and I felt confident in its ability to prevent damage. I never got sunburned and I didn't feel the need to constantly reapply the product. I was very active, so the water resistance was a well needed benefit. Being very sensitive to smells of sunscreens, I was surprised that this product didn't bother me. I gladly give it four stars for its astonishing performance. I took away one star because it comes with a hefty price tag. All in all, I would happily recommend it to all consumers serious about preventing sun damage!

Nothing special
by allismom

The only good thing about this product is that the smell is better than other products. Otherwise, the results are the same as the cheaper brands. You still have to apply as often as other products, it is still SPF30, but it costs $28! If it lasted for a few years this may be worth it, but you are not recommended to keep sunscreen longer than one season.
