This is the only sunscreen my family uses - hubby, son and me. As someone who has a family history of skin cancer, my dermatologist insists that I use a product with a *physical* barrier, not just chemical ones that wear off quickly. She favors zinc oxide, and this is one of only a few easy-to-find, moderately priced sunscreens that contain it - regular Coppertone Water Babies doesn't, so make sure you are picking up the "Pure & Simple" version. The ZO does make your skin very white when you first put in on. It takes a bit of rubbing to get it worked in, but the results are very worth it. No sunburns for any of us, and it holds up well to swimming and sweating (we reapply ever couple of hours, of course :) It's not greasy and doesn't irritate my son's sensitive skin. I hope Coppertone makes this product forever!
I picked a sunscreen solely on the new Enviromental Study Group's recommendations--UVA/B accurate protection and no bad stuff like oxybenzone. Excellent for children, doesn't sting eyes. For the adult woman--you're going to get the dreaded white mask look which might look startling in office or social situations...for that department, I'm still looking. But for gardening, outdoor activities in places like sunny Texas--it is what I keep handy.
Normally a disciple of consumer reports who recommend this product as second choice and a best buy, my experience is that Coppertone Waterbabies SPF50 is a worst buy in that it somehow will get to the eyes on the driest of days even when there is no visible sign of perspiration. The effect, on my eyes at least, is really painful stinging and I was barely able to drive home from my walk location. Now I use Cotz which does not have this effect.
