All Terrain AquaSport SPF 30 Sunscreen -- 6 fl oz
Works Great, Stays on in Water
I've seen a lot of negative reviews about this product due to the thickness and lumpiness of the sun screen. It's true, it is more difficult to apply than more liquid and more toxic creams. But it WORKS. And it works well.
Last year while training for an Ironman Triathlon, I would regularly bike for 3 to 4 hours in 95 degree heat. Even after hours of sweating, the sunscreen was still protecting my skin. I never burned, and when I showered, I would have to vigorously scrub to remove the remaining sunscreen.
It will take you longer to apply, it will require more attention to make sure you cover your skin evenly, and your sweat will bead up on your skin. But you'll be protected, you won't smell like chemicals, you won't have to repeatedly reapply, and you won't burn. What else can you ask for?

Bought many bottles last year and the lotion was lumpy. I tried to squeeze the lumps out so I could rub the lotion in but there were too many. Will try one more bottle this year and hope it won't be lumpy.

Went to the caribbean for 10 days and was out in the sun all day pretty much every day. This worked great! It's a little thick and you have to absolutely make sure you cover yourself good or you'll have splotches. Other than that it's perfect.

I'm an active Mom, PE Teacher, distance runner, & outside a lot. This sunscreen has a high rating from the EWG & works well. While using it, I don't burn, & I'm not getting very tan. It's comfortable on my skin, I only notice I'm wearing it when I touch it - a small price to pay for "Toxin free".
It doesn't bother my eyes at all (even when sweat drips into my eyes). It washes off cleanly in the shower - I use Jason's Aloe Body Wash.
I love the way it evens-out my skin-tone on my face. It gives a slight white tint...but MUCH less than I've gotten from other sunscreens. I put the sunscreen in my hands, rub them together (to warm it up), then apply to my face/body...it seems to help the blending-in.
My only complaint (& reason I gave it 4 Stars) is: when I sweat, my sweat beads-up...like water on a waxed car. This is my first time using a "Toxin-free" sunscreen, so I don't know if "beading-up" common.
Vitacost makes it VERY affordable! Thank you Vitacost!
My teenage daughters like it too...success!!
