Question What sunscreen/block do you use?

Now that summer is here we will be spending alot of time swimming. The downside of it is the sunburns. Both my son and I have really sensitive skin and will react to lotions even formulated for sensitive skin. What do you use or recommend? I prefer an SPF of at least 30.

My DS breaks out easily and burns easily. We have an SPF swim shirt which really helps! We got ours at Target.

Both of my girls have SUPER sensitive skin (as does DH), and we use Blue Lizard with no issues at all. We have also had good luck with California Baby, but it is $$$.

We use Natures Gate 50. Works great, does not bother any of the sensitive skin people in the house, and waterproof.

Don't mean to hi-jack the thread, but where do you get Blue Lizard? My SIL recommended it for my super-sensitive DD but said I could only get it via prescription.

Re: What sunscreen/block do you use?

Have you tried one of the new sprays? I've been leery but I bought the Coppertone clear spray sunscreen and we all used it at the beach, all day. Nobody was even slightly pink and that has NEVER happened before. The oils is what bothers me and my kids and it didn't have any of those.

Californiababy. Totally worth the money, imo, but it is pricey.

We use California Baby in the tube for bodies and Aveno Baby stick for faces. I used the EWG sunscreen info to choose.
