Honest reviews


too expensive

The was recommended by my dermatologist. I know it’s a great product but it’s just so expensive. To prices for my purse.

Found the perfect Sunscreen!

Amazing sunscreen! I can’t use any other after getting this. Even better testimonial is my husband will actually use this too, and he is one to HATE anything creamy. A very small amount of this goes a very long way. It works too, I burn so easy and for an average day (4 to 5 hours) of being in direct sun outside swimming, I have never needed to re-apply. Never had any sunburn, or even the feeling of being sunburned that most sunscreens leave me with. This really works. It has a nice clean smell too, so great for men or women. Non-greasy, it is a little more massaging to rub it in than most of the suncreens I’ve used in the past, but nothing to difficult at all. Just rub it in and enjoy your day. You will smell fresh and clean the whole time too. Great stuff!!

Paraben & Oxbenzone…

READ INGREDIENTS. THE HIGHER THE ZINC, THE MORE PROTECTION.Zinc Oxide is a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical one, blocks both UVA (320-400 nm) and UVB (280-320 nm) rays of ultraviolet light. Chemical sunscreens are less effective and carry unnecessary health risks. ZO is insoluble in water, used in many industries, in ointments, creams and lotions. Non-irritating, non-allergenic and non-comedogenic, used by athletes as a bandage to prevent soft tissue damage during workouts. ZO must be NON NANO / UNCOATED UPS -2 ZO which has a mean particle size greater than 30nm, when applied to the skin do not get absorbed into the body, do not enter the bloodstream, and are not a threat to human health.SPF is a measure of how much longer someone will be protected from UVB rays than someone wearing no cream. If the sun reddens unprotected skin in ten minutes, for example, a person wearing SPF15 can be exposed to the sun without reddening for 15 times longer – 150 minutes. While UVB rays are behind the redness of sunburn, UVA rays damage the skin’s DNA at a deeper layer. Both radiation types can cause skin cancer. The EU recommendation is for sunscreens to offer a UVA protection factor that is a third of their SPF.I make my own sunscreen as well as I purchase sunscreen for times when I do not have time to make any since I need to surf. For that reason, when I purchase a sunscreen mix, I need the same formula as I use when I make my own organic sunscreen mix since it only requires few ingredients but for more protection like my nose, I bump the zinc. Zinc is what you see surfers put on their nose for protection. The more zinc, the more protection but it means a mix that is more like a mud since zinc is a powder that I purchase and add to EVCO.Blue Lizard Baby- SPF 30+- Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection- Chemical-Free- Paraben-Free- Fragrance-Free- 10% Zinc Oxide; 5% Titanium DioxideBlue Lizard Face- SPF 30+- Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection- Paraben-Free- Fragrance-Free- Oil-Free- 8% Zinc OxideBlue Lizard Sensitive- SPF 30+- Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection- Chemical-Free- Paraben-Free- Fragrance-Free- 10% Zinc Oxide; 5% Titanium DioxideBlue Lizard Sport- SPF 30+- Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection- Very Water Resistant- 6% Zinc OxideBlue Lizard Regular- SPF 30+- Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection- Very Water Resistant- 6% Zinc OxideNot a Paraben Free formula. The inactive ingredients are extensive in Blue Lizard, check their Internet site but more importantly compare the cost of any sunscreen to better brands with hardly any ingredients except few organic and a very high amount of zinc like 18% zinc not 5% or 10% zinc. Blue Lizard’s ingredients vary so much from their Face mix to the Original mix to the Baby mix since they offer more additives, less zinc with noticeable price fluctuation. Cancer does not differentiate face skin or leg skin, it is all the same so why apply anything that has less protection to different part of the body. Ingredients get soaked in regardless of the skin location so compare ingredients since it is like consuming those ingredients when applied to the skin. A good organic 3oz 18% zinc mix should not cost more than $13 and for less when on sale. I get lots more when I make my own, much, much more and I get to control the zinc percentage in the mix as well.

This is the best sunscreen we have found!

This is the best sunscreen we have found! My daughter goes to a summer day camp that does not reapply sunscreen. We have been using this based on a friends recommendation. She did not get burned once this whole summer (and we live in South Texas). This sunscreen is on the pricey side, but is well worth it. We will definitely continue to use it.

Great stuff!

We really like this sunscreen. It absorbs into the skin well and glides on easily. It is expensive, but even after quite a lot of use, our bottle doesn’t appear to be very empty. The blue bottle is such a neat idea and it is the one my older boys like the most because of it. Definitely my new fave.

Simply the best and toally natural sunblock

I first used this 11 years ago and have used it ever since. I would use nothing else. Back then I ordered it online from a online store in Australia and could buy the 8.75oz bottle, including shipping to the US, for just over $10. I bought it for last several years from Amazon but this year it had risen in price to a ridiculous amount. Will be checking out the Australian store again.

not for days or places with high UV index

My son got tanned despite of using this daily. He had golf lessons 3 times a week in the mornings! and only for one hour! he came back home darker after each lesson. My husband got a tan too but didn’t burn. I have to admit, we are currently in South America, perhaps it will work better in Northern Hemisphere. It’s not easy to spread, leaves white cast, you have to rub it a lot to get rid of whiteness, and hairy fuzzy men, forget it!!! We tried Australian gold brand (easier to spread but stinks to high heavens), and no difference in protection.
