Well, I typically burn pretty easy if I forget sunscreen. I've tried MANY different brands, and most work pretty well, in that they all do keep me from burning.
One thing I like a lot about this stuff, is the continuous, any angle spray action. Makes it easy to put on by yourself, in hard to reach areas.
Another GREAT thing, is that this stuff absolutely will not sweat off, or run into, and sting your eyes.
This all sounds great, right ? But here's the thing you may or may not be able to live with....
When you spray this stuff on, it looks and feels like your spray painting yourself with clear shellac ! Its gets all wet and glossy. Yes, it will dry in about 10 minutes or so, but it still looks just as wet and glossy, for as long as you have it on. Kind of weird if you decide to go indoors somewhere (especially if its nice and cool) and you look like your sweating your butt off !
Then, also like spray shellac, it gets all kinds of weird wrinkles and such, wherever your skin tries to bend, as your new "clear coat" does not want to flex with your skin ?
The only thing that will take it off is soap and water.... and preferably, with some kind of scrubber or loofah.
I just wish they made the same stuff in "semi-gloss" ;) LOL
My whole family uses this product and we love it. My boys are very active and this lotion sticks with them!
With two children in sports, our family needs a sunscreen that works consistently. We love the spray version, it's easy to put on and lasts while we are outside.
I am so disappointed in this product! We used this for our vacation and after spraying it on ourselves after about 10 minutes of being outside I noticed our clothes were turning orange!! Anywhere your body touched your clothing that been sprayed with sunscreen dyed the clothes and I can't get the orange out of some of the pieces of clothing. I do NOT recommend this product! Brand new shirts and shorts that were bought and only wore once are ruined! So disappointing!
I used this while working in the yard over the weekend. I am now covered in itchy bumps and only in spots I applied the sunblock. Granted, I am not sunburned but I'd rather have a sunburn than itch like crazy! Ill definitely be finding a new product to use.
I have been a faithful Coppertone girl for over 30 years. This will be my last year of using Coppertone. Like the other reviewer stated THIS STAINS YOUR CLOTHES. This has an ingredient in it call Avobenzene that will stain your clothes. It has started happening in the last 3 years and this year has been the worst. I have ruined beach towels, swimsuits, shirts and coverups. It tells you to let the product dry before putting on clothes. Not sure how you are suppose to do that on the beach. They tell you when you call that they recommend that you pretreat it before washing and if it doesn't come out, pretreat it again. Sometime it works, sometimes it doesn't. Now to me it is stupid to have to buy stain remover to wear suntan lotion. If everything is completely white, you can bleach it, but if you have any color on it, you can't do that. Please look at any lotion you buy to make sure it doesn't have that ingredient in it. Spray 4 and 10 do not, but you do need higher SPF than that. I have some old lotion that needs to be thrown out and that doesn't have it in it. Coppertone, please go back to your old formula, so we can buy your product again. Love the scent, but not the stains.
