I use Superdrug Solait SPF 30 moisturising sun spray. It works well and has a pleasant smell.

We always buy the copper tone aerosols when we get out there - easy to apply and smells so nice. Never burnt but we are outdoorsy Devon people so live in shorts from may onwards 😋

Always buy the spray Coppertone Sport - and bring some home to use here. Love the spray as its so easy to use and sinks in fast.

We stopped using P20 several years ago as it started to stain our clothes.

Now a convert to Ultrasun Sport (great with the hairy DH) and have never burnt when using it nor had clothes staining.

Have used it in South Africa on safari, Dom Rep and Florida several times and would certainly recommend.

PS DD has sensitive skin and is allergic to Aloe vera and had no issues with it either.

With two pale-skinned gingers amongst us, we purchase quite a bit of sun cream, but these brands haven't all been positive experiences.

This is our US sun screen haul-

Hawaiian Tropic: teen dd fancies a tropical smell, so she chose Hawaiian Tropic. Unfortunately, she practically burns in the shade with it, despite reapplying hourly. I have stopped her using it.

Equate (from Walmart): works well to prevent burning on the younger kids, even in water, but gives two of us a rash so we dont use it any longer. We two do have some other skin allergies (aloe vera, several shampoos, hair conditioners, hand/body creams, and hand soaps), so we may be sensitive to an ingredient.

Trader Joes spray (from Trader Joe obvs): smells good, thin coverage so we still burn despite reapplying hourly

Banana Boat spray: works well, but thin coverage so we still burn despite reapplying hourly

Coppertone Face and Neutrogena Face: works well for our sensitive skin and we get no rash or breakouts with these

Blue Lizard (Australian): works the better than the US sun creams when reapplied hourly

Coppertone Water Babies: works well and smells good enough

**This year, because of our skin sensitivities and our desire to avoid the constant applications of chemicals to skin all over our bodies, we are switching to mineral sunscreens. (I understand Hawaii is also banning the sale and use of chemical sunscreens because of reef damage.) After doing some research, we will purchase before we travel and pack in our checked cases. Ive read many positive reviews of Badger Organic Sunscreen and Tropic Skincare Sunbalm. We may also try Neutrogena Sheer Zinc. Dd wants to try Australian Gold. I want to avoid nano-particles, which may be too easily absorbed in the skin, and because we will be using a lot of sun cream every day, I want to be careful. I also want to avoid sprays because we dont get enough coverage with them.

We purchase the Coppertone spray on our first night in Orlando along with the crispy chicken in Publix.
We've used it for years. I'm very fair skinned and I find it gives great coverage and protection. DS uses the Sports one as does his Dad, it goes on easy on hairy arms and legs. We also buy the Coppertone stick sunscreen for DH's face as he perspires a lot in the Florida heat and finds this is the only one that doesn't wash into his eyes.
I love the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Suncream Factor 50 for my face - I barely get a freckle with it on.
