    Comments about Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Lotion:

    I really do not enjoy most sunscreens because of their greasy, sticky feel on my skin. This product is not greasy or sticky in the least. It rubs on easily and feels great. It provides wonderful protection. I will purchase it again.

      I like the texture and application of this sunscreen, but the fragrance is really too much. It's not a horrible smell; it's fruity and fresh smelling, but I just don't like being covered in perfume. I will return this one and get the kids version, which is fragrance free.

        Comments about Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Lotion:

        I tend to get sun freckles during this time of the year especially so sun protection is a step in my routine that I take very seriously. I have sunscreen for my face, but being that it is expensive I tend to not want to use it anywhere other than my face. This sunscreen is applied daily and I have really been impressed with it. The quality is there and the price is so good. My favorite part is that this product is also reef friendly, which is really important to me. If you need some good protection I would try this product.

          Comments about Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Lotion:

          Works well for my skin that tends to get oily later in the morning/afternoon, it's pretty matte once applied. Takes about 1-2 min to soak in, leaves a bit of a white cast, which may not work for darker complexions (I'm pretty pale). If you're sensitive to scent, wouldn't recommend this.

                  My dermatologist told me that mineral sunscreens would protect my fair skin better than chemical ones so I started trying different ones. This one is the best I have found. It is liquid enough to smooth on easily but not make me look like a ghost and it protects wonderfully. We were at the beach for multiple hours nearly every day and NO sunburns. I LOVE it! All the others I have tried are thicker and hard to apply but even my husband noted that this one goes on more easily and it still protects!

                    This is a really good sunscreen. I have melasma and I need good protection. I feel it provides that for me. This wears great under foundation or powder. However, you only need a little bit. I notice if I use to much or rub it in to much, it leaves a sticky and clumpy feel on my face. So I use a little and lightly smooth over face. This product is great and the price is good.

                          Hi, wonderful question! Any SPF that contains zinc oxide has the ability to cause a flashback as the ingredient actually works as a physical blocker which reflects the suns rays. Therefore, it will reflect any type of light. However, you should not experience flashback if you choose to use digital photography!

                          Hey Nina! Yes, the active ingredients in this product are Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. Both of these ingredients are light-reflecting so there is a chance from some flashback.
