VanicreamTM Sunscreen SPF 30 is a broad spectrum sunscreen that protect your skin throughout the UVA spectrum and provide more protection than your natural sunburn protection (UVB).

sun block

This sun block is highly recommended by EWG as safe. It is very thick and does not blend it easily. I found another that is just as effective and safe and goes on smoother because it contains olive oil.

Awful sunscreen

I’m still searching for the perfect sunscreen but this one is awful. It’s thick and chalky. Goes on greasy and white, it’s extremely hard to rub in and seems to sit on top of the skin. I wouldn’t think of putting this on my face as it’s a greasy nasty paste that would make me break out instantly.

Michele Callaway, NE

Great for sensitive skin BUT…

This sunscreen is great for sensitive skin. I’ve used Neutrogena all my life because of allergic responses to other sunscreens. The problem with Vanicream is that if you’ve never used their cream, you are going to find that it is quite thick and will make you look quite chalky. I also found that I could not use it on my face without using powder since it makes you look extra shiny once you’ve been able to get the white streaks out!

Not for face eczema

Again, if your skin is too sensitive or you suffer from eczema, like I do on my face, you have to be careful because this product may not work for you. It didn’t work for me. My symptoms got worst.

Patrica Ovid, MI

OK…but not great.

I live down in Florida and the sun is scorching here so I need a suncreen for my sensitive skin that really does its job well without interfering with the skin’s business.A friend recommended this product to me and I bought it at a drug store right away but I was a bit skeptical, knowing that I haven’t really found the perfect sunscreen even after trying nearly a dozen sunscreen brands.So after trying this product for a couple of weeks, here are my thoughts about it:Pros:> Adequate protection from sunburn.> Doesn’t hurt the skin.> Doesn’t clog pores.> The packaging is sleek and is small enough to be portable.Cons:> Greasy, doesn’t have a matte finish.> Not that resistant to sweating, forms white rivulets with the sweat after a period of intense heat.> Gives a white sheen upon application that is eerily visible in certain lighting conditions. (I am a bit tan and I found it quite disturbing, its like I had “wearing sunscreen” written on my forehead.)All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone, despite the pros. I just didn’t like it.

Sensitive Skin Sunblock

This is a nice alternative to the oily sunblocks out there on the market. Sure, it doesn’t have the scent of coconut oil, but some of us are allergic to that anyway.So, this is a nice sunblock for us sensitive skin types and it is oil-free and non-irritating, not to mention non-comedogenic. Basically, you can use this on your face and it won’t block your pores.This cream seems really rich and creamy and then suddenly it just disappears into your skin and feels very light and not oily.Highly recommended for when you are out and about in the sun this summer!~The Rebecca Review

When traveling light these are great for sunscreen touch ups.

I bought these for some work-related ‘short-term travel’–for the most part when outside I’m pretty covered up due to malaria risks, but the face/hands/neck regions remain exposed. Before leaving for the day I do apply my DEET layer, then my sunscreen layer and then utilize these for touch ups throughout the day. Compared to tubes/cans these are so much easier to stick in nooks/crannies of my clothes or backpack.I would not rely on these for a full body protection or a day at the beach, but for localized touch ups in a convenient package these are fantastic.HIGHLY recommended!JTG

Clare Walpole, ME

powerfu little package

I have a couple of these little packages tucked all over; in my purse, car, lunch box, etc. I purchased a box last year to carry with me on the 3 DAY-60 Mile Susan G Komen Walk for the Cure; 20 miles a day in the bright Texas sun and I did not get burned. I did find that I could do face, neck, arms and legs with one towlette. Only drawback for me is that your hands are a bit slick right after you use, so depending upon what you are doing, you’ll need to wipe them off. They are great for training outside, too. As you perspire, you can easily re-apply sunscreen with out carrying around a bigger tube of product.

Babyganics Mineral-Based Sunscreen 50 SPF, On-The-Go 2-Ounce Tube

Our Baby-Safe Standards Baby-safe is how we create, test, and improve our products. Between idea and reality we talk to parents, doctors, regulatory experts and scientists. We learn what we should and shouldn’t do to make it safe and great. How does or doesn’t the product feel and smell? How does it work and why? What ingredients will make it better? What which are unsafe or unnecessary? How can we can make it easy or fun and economical to use? We test and refine it. And once it’s on the shelf it’s never off our radar. We review ingredients, the latest studies, listen to your feedback and we’re on the lookout for new and better ways to improve performance or safety. Just like our babies we never sleep. Our Do’s and Our Don’ts It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) we don’t use toxic or harmful ingredients. But there’s no generally accepted standard for “natural” and “safe” so we’ve come up with our own. All our ingredients are vetted by experts as safe to use around babies. Our “never use” ingredients come from Natural Product Standards, EU and US lists of ingredients to avoid (parabens, phthalates, known toxins, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, etc.). Then the real parent test: “Is this something we’d confidently use around or on our own babies?” If it’s on the shelf, the answer is “Yes”. In the end, the best way for all of us to help babies develop and thrive is to focus on the ‘yes’s’. How can we add value to you and your baby’s world? How can we better nourish, protect, soothe, or clean? The answers are in ingredients like NeoNourish and Orange Blossom in our night time formulas to relax your baby. It’s in soothing, calming ingredients like Colloidal Oatmeal, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe and Vitamin E. Our ‘do’s’ mean our products aren’t just safe, they’re gentle, nourishing, moisturizing, cleansing, soothing, rash-reducing, healing, stain-removing, grease-cutting, clean-rinsing, broad spectrum, super-protective, absorbent, and a really good value. So remember the ‘don’ts’. But don’t forget the ‘do’s. Our Testing If it’s on the shelf, our products have brilliantly passed more tests than an Ivy League PhD. We test every product and ingredient for safety and efficacy (Does it rinse? Clean? Protect? Moisturize? Heal?) and our preservatives (Will it last, resist contamination and is it safe?). We test for skin irritation (Human Repeat Insult Patch Testing if you want to get all technical) and eye irritation. We do SPF, Water Resistance & Broad Spectrum tests for our sun care products and Stability and Micro Contamination tests on all our formulas. That’s the short list. If you want to satisfy your inner chemistry nerd call our toll free number. Plenty of geeks on our end are standing by to talk! NeoNourish As part of our ongoing commitment to add ‘yes’s’ to our products we’ve created an ingredient blend that’s special enough to get its own little shout out. This 100% natural, cold-pressed seed oil blend is specifically made for the unique needs of babies’ ‘work in progress’ skin. It’s a combination of oils from the seeds of Black Cumin, Tomato, Sunflower, Cranberry and Red Raspberry. They’re specially balanced to supplement your baby’s natural skin defenses against the environment. You’ll find it in our products that come in the most direct contact with your baby’s skin. From lotions to bath products and even in our diapers. (Heck, we’re tempted to put it all over ourselves.). NeoNourish means Babyganics sun care is also skin care Made to protect and nourish your baby’s ‘work in progress’ skin 100% natural, cold-pressed seed oil blend Black Cumin, Tomato, Sunflower, Cranberry and Red Raspberry Specially balanced to supplement your baby’s skin defenses against the environment (beyond the sun!)

Like the small size multi-pack

Cons:-1. I admit that this is a bit pasty. But that is due to using natural zinc oxide for sun protection. If I take small amount and rub it in it gets absorbed fine. (Anything natural that absorbs better is around $30 for the same size)2. Cannot just spray and be done :)Pros:-1.It is PABA, paraben, sulfate, phthalate, nano-particle and retinly palmitate free.2. Fragrance free3. Water resistent for more than an hour.I like the smaller 2oz multi pack option. Usually my big containers get caulky after some time. Now I have one for home, one for diaper bag, one for purse and one at the daycare.

Jasmine Walcott, IA

Will continue to buy!

My kids are as white as white gets and burn if they are out for more than 10 minutes. With this lotion, we were able to have a Florida beach vacation for a week with no sunburns! Of course I reapplied during the day but they remained safe. The lotion goes on well- it isn’t like peanut butter or hard to spread but it isn’t like water either… just right and doesn’t give you the "ghost" look.

Easy application and non-whitening but quite oily

Here is the list of ingredients as it states on the bottle of the sunscreen I have:Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide: 19%Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Gel, Bladderwrack (Fucus Vesiculosus) Extract, Caprylic/capric triglycerides, Caprylyl Glycol, Cucumber (Cucumis Sativus) Extract, d-alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Grapefruit (Citrus Grandis) Seed Extract, Jojoba Oil, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Sea Kelp (Macrocystis Pyrifera)Extract, Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus) Oil.PROS:It spreads easily and clear.It does not cake on the skin.Will not leave dry white patches no matter how much you put. Very forgiving for skin that has dry patches or is peeling from acne medications.Does not cause or contribute to increased acne.Helps to spread other dry sunscreens that you might use on your face.CONS:It is quite oily, so oily that you can easily wipe it off and you will be unprotected from the sun just as easily.If you are used to seeing at least a little bit of whiteness as you spread a natural sunscreen, this spreads very oily clear so it is harder to be sure if you are being protected from the sun. Makes me wonder if they are using nano-zinc in this? The bottle label does not state that is non-nano zinc.The spray of the bottle can get clogged after a while and not function well. Making you have to unscrew the top to pour it out or transfer it to another bottle.Possible solution for oily face:What you can do is put this on then put another type of drier sunscreen (the cream version of All Terrain is quite dry) on top to help dry the oily residue and to ensure it stays in place so you are protected while at the same time the oiliness of this sunscreen will help to spread the dry sunscreen.

Great Natural Spray-On Sunscreen!

We were so excited to find the All Terrain sunscreen spray on Amazon- its hard to find in stores! We read about it on one of the EWG websites and decided to give it a try. It took a while for it to arrive but was really worth the wait. Just spray it on and it rubs right in. It is a little greasy, so make sure to have hand wipes around if you are out and about to clean it off (and don’t get it on clothes). My kids are both impatient and very fair-skinned so this was perfect for our hot, sunny, Mid-Atlantic outdoor play. It really does last a long time and did not come off in the pool. Its a bit on the pricy side, but a lot of the “natural” or “organic” sun blocks usually are since they are not as common. The smell is not bad either, kind of neutral.Get it while it lasts since its really, really hard to find in stores…

Veronica Moline, KS

Love It!

After running out of our usual California Baby and not wanting to venture to Target, we decided to give this a go(I puffy heart Amazon Prime). I am so glad we gave this a try. Not only is it cheaper then our usual go to brand, but it works for Mom and Dad too. I’ve been putting a dab of this under my makeup and it doesn’t give me a ghostly white appearance and has zero smell. The ingredients are natural so there are no parabans or 50 billion syllable chemical compounds that I have to Google to make sure it won’t give my kids a 3rd eye in 20 years. It goes on evenly and doesn’t feel thick or gluey and I feel like my skin can actually breath. Plus with it being easier to apply, my squirmy toddler is done that much quicker, which makes the entire process a heck of a lot easier. I’ve already ordered the spray version of this as well and I can’t wait until it comes too. Our niblets have super sensitive skin so I’m glad we have a way to protect them without the risk of a rash later.

Good product, but overpriced – seller deceptive

Let me give you a tip. Buy a thing of cornstarch, and buy a half pound of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide here on Amazon. That’ll be maybe a bit more than this one TINY jar, and it will be a years worth of supply, for your whole body. You’d have to do some research to get the proportions right, and it may be messy, but marking up this stuff like this is insane. This isn’t to say it doesn’t work, but again, there’s nothing special about it.In addition, I went to the seller’s website and they used deceptive comments about some of their products, so much so that I actually emailed them about it to clarify that an ingredient was in it or not. They never replied. Shady seller – at least they know their science on this one though. Just DIY next time 🙂

Matilda North Branch, MN

Great for Oily Skin

I have very oily skin so this is a much better alternative than smearing on a greasy lotion. Plus, if you already have on make up, you can just layer it on for your afternoon walk in the sun.

Twila Curtiss, WI


This is a wonderful product. As with anything some will like and some won’t. I live in Florida and am fair skinned. I have many allergies to cosmetics. I love swiping this on like my mineral makeup and because it is white I can see where it’s going on and it doesn’t look odd once brushed in. I found it worked great on my face neck and chest while doing yard work for several hours. I USUALLY BURN IN 20 or less so I think it works great better than liquids that sweat into my eyes. Those who say it doesn’t work maybe burn easily and this wasn’t high enough spf or needed more. I’m sorry to hear they didn’t like it because it is I think its so great to not be a pore clogging liquid. I haven’t used it full body but on my arms,neck,chest and face. I like it so much this bottle is for my mom who is even fairer and has roseaca.

Update: May Clog Pores and Cause Bumps…

I gave this product raved reviews before, but now I am no longer using it. I used it for awhile, but I started noticing bumps. On the days I didn’t use it I didn’t get bumps so you get the idea… I do have very sensitive skin so this may be the problem. Good luck if you choose to use this product.

A lot of the sunscreen claims to be non-greasy but the truth comes out on the black leather in my car. White stains that are a bear to get off.

The boss of sunscreen. Y U NO buy this???

My parents had an in-ground pool growing up so we’ve tried it all. This is by far the best sunscreen I’ve ever used. Very light scent and very, very thick. Just a nickel size will cover your face and neck so one bottle of this goes a long way. Between my girlfriend and I, it lasted the whole summer.This will stay on all day at the pool or beach. You may want to put extra on there at certain points of the day just to be safe like on your cheeks and nose.It lasts so long that you’ll still feel it on your skin when you turn in at night and take a shower.If you have very sensitive skin and need the best protection, buy this. Anyone wanting excellent sunscreen should buy this.If you have children, buy the kind made just for kids:Banana Boat Kids SPF 50 Family Size Sunscreen Lotion, 12-Fluid Ounce

Essential Protection Against Harmful Sun rays

For my children, I started buying the sunscreens specially for kids (spf 45 or 50). Then, I met a good sunscreen of SPF 70, which I liked even better, that would protect my children further. Then, I met another sunscreen, one of SPF 85, and it was better still! But following the advise from friends, I tried to get better protection against our tropical Sun (I live in the Dominican Republic), for my children and myself’s swimming practice. So, I purchased this product…While it works, I cannot say that it does better than my previous sunscreen of SPF 85. The previous sunscreen (the 85 SPF one) protected us better (fair skins on all of us), helping us to get no more than a mild tone on our skins. I don’t know if it was because the 85 SPF resisted the water activity better… With this Banana Boat Performance Sunblock Lotion SPF 100, we got noticeably more toned. But what really had me worried is that I noticed on my face some darker spots that weren’t there before (it’s been about five days, and thank God they are not there anymore!). Probably those spots were because of some residue of beauty cream on my face, but when I used the other sunscreen (the 85 SPH), it was under the same circumstances, so maybe it is that this sunscreen SPF 100 from Banana Boat doesn’t interact well with other creams (if any possible residue was left, in the first place), or maybe is that the Sun at that moment was too much for this sunscreen to fight against (10:30 am). I compare this sunscreen stregth with the 45 SPF sunscreen I used before having higher protection available, and find them very alike in protection.Please, have in mind that I used this Banana Boat just once, but the thing is that I don’t dare to try it again (I am scared of those dark spots, and we all were noticeably more “touched” by the Sun that time!). I decided to go back to my previous sunscreen SPF 85. My husband will use this Banana Boat 100 SPF for his work, since he does’t have to swim there, thus, the sunscreen will resist better (we hope!).

Absolutely the best sunscreen for me

I’m allergic to many of the sunscreens that have PABA or some of the other common screening agents. (I end up with a rash that paradoxically looks like a bad sunburn.) But being very fair despite being a brunette, I have to use sunscreen when I spend time outdoors.I like This one because it’s SPF 30 and it’s resistant to running off when you perspire. It doesn’t bother my skin, and it seems to stay on a good part of the day. I won’t burn with SPF-30 but I think they have a 50 if you are really sensitive. The aloe and vitamin A and E in this formula seem to be very soothing to the skin.Active Ingredients: Avobenzone (1%), Homosalate (15%), Octocrylene (.80%), Oxybenzone 4% (Sunscreen), Octisalate (4%)Inactive Ingredients: Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Capryl Glycol, Hydrogenated Dimer Dilinoley/Dimethylcarbonate, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Acetate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Acetate (Vitamin A), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Behenyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Citrate, Disodium Ethylene Dicocamide Peg 15 Disulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethyl Capramide, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Lauryl Lactylate, Lecithin, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum

Touts itself to be an antioxidant sunscreen, but the only 2 “active” ingredients listed are the usual sunscreen things. How it’s supposed to be antioxidant is beyond me. Would not buy again.

Glad I bought it

I was hesitant to buy this product because of the price. However I’ve been looking for a good, none oily sunscreen, which doesn’t use animal products or harsh chemicals, so I thought I would take a chance. I already have a drawer full of other, cheaper sunscreens which don’t do well on my face. I can get very oily from these products and therefore skip wearing it.This sunscreen was a awesome surprize. My skin feels wonderful underneath it. The lotion absorbs into my skin leaving it feeling soft and never greasy or heavy. Then my makeup glides on it and overall my skin looks well hydrated and healthy.I am making this my permanent facial sunscreen.

MAC what?

So before I purchased this product my go to was MAC because as a WOC I could never find a perfect shade and this one isn’t a perfect shade for me either. But I mix this product with another one and it gets me my perfect shade. I thought to myself, why am I spending 20 dollars on a foundation that doesn’t even fit my skin complexion right? It just doesn’t make sense to me. So I thought to give this product a try considering how many youtube beauty guru’s compare it. This product is BETTER than MAC. No lie! It blends better, it last longer, and it does not make me oily. The only thing is because it blends better it isn’t as heavy as the MAC so if you’re going for a full foundation look it may take two applications, unlike MAC. But this product looked way better than MAC on my face. I put this product on my face at 7-8 in the morning, did my every day routine and even took a nap around 6 and when I woke up my foundation STILL looked flawless. No oily, no lines, no ANYTHING. I say PURCHASE IT and say yourself 15 bucks!

Bought it as a gift.

My mom approved of this makeup. She said the cover is even and the way it glides is smooth which I guess is a good thing lol.

MAC who?

I love this, ladies. If you want to cut back on high end products, this is the way to go. I have sensitive skin and I also need a great cover. I was so shocked at this coverage. I love it and compare it, hip to hip, with MAC…I promise you, this is a great product for a woman of color. I have ordered more….
