Most Helpful Positive Review Love this product
I love this product. It is by far the best spray sunscreen I have ever tried. I know dermatologists don't recommend anything over a 30 SPF but I feel a little more comfortable with a higher number just in case I don't have a chance to reapply. That said I wish ULTA carried the 70 SPF SunBum spray sunscreen which I have used in the past and would prefer to purchase.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love this...
Living in New England, I take advantage of our summers and spend as much time at the beach as I possibly can. I am fair-skinned, so I usually don't use anything less than 50 SPF. I also like the sprays because I often go to the beach by myself and the sprays help me get all of the hard to reach areas. The first time I used this, I was pleasantly surprised by the smell, but felt like I needed more product to cover me. After I came home from the beach, I showered everything off like usual. The next morning, I found my PJs sticking to my back and shoulders and couldn't figure out why. After a few more trips to the beach, I discovered that it was the sunscreen. Maybe it's just me, but I have to actually scrub this sunscreen off. Not a fan of that. I also found that I seemed to tan more with this sunscreen. I don't usually tan much with 50 SPF, so not really sure how effective this is. Like I said, I wanted to love this, but it's not for me.

Not sticky or greasy like some sunscreens can be. It does have a pretty strong coconut scent, but I don't mind that.
It won't come off in the shower
Ash from San diego
I took 2 showers and scrubbed my body with a lufa, really hard. I still smell like chemical sunscreen, it won't come off. A couple other reviews mention it is hard to get off.
The spray nozzle makes too much come out so for the price, it will not last you long.
I am also sunburned, the sunscreen didn't work. This has also been mentioned a few other times on the reviews.
The only good thing is the smell, it's tropical, and it's safe for coral.
That's it , otherwise this is awful.
My Absolute Favorite
Amanda S. from Orlando
This is so easy to apply, especially on my crazy boys who can't sit still. It provides great coverage and smells AMAZING! Love the Sun Bum brand. I won't purchase any other.

Applied sunscreen and my back burned soo bad:( wanted to love this.
Reliable and Effective
CRS from Cincinnati
I love this product. I have not been burnt once using this. The smell is great and the bottle doesn't leak or anything if you are carrying around in a bag or purse. The only down side is that it does look very shiny when you first put it on, and if you sweat and it gets in your eyes it does hurt really badly.

Powerful sunscreen! Smells wonderful!
Yvette from Plainfield, IL
Never had any issues with it not working for what it's intended. Love the sheen it gives but it is not sticky. It does not leave a white cast. Bonus is it smells delicious. It's been a summer restock for years now.
Works, but you'll run out fast
Tessa from Northern California
This sunscreen does work and the smell is actually pleasant compared to every other sunscreen I've used. I'm very fair and burn very easily so I definitely use sunscreen frequently. The convenience of spray application is NOT worth the price here because you will run out of this product very quickly. I do recommend Sun Bum brand - just not the spray.
Nice Spray Sunscreen
KKH from VA
I bought this product to replenish our sunscreen stores for the summer. I really like the scent of the product. Not overly scented or obnoxious - just a light, fresh, slightly tropical smell (to me). I've mostly used this working out in the yard and on bike rides- not at the pool or beach. I think any kind of water activities would necessitate more frequent application (but that is expected). I re-apply every 1.5 hrs and no sunburns yet.
Best sunscreen I have found
Ragdoll mom from Mpls,MN
I always look for the higher SPF because I burn easily and don't like wearing sunscreen that leave my skin feeling greasy, this feels more like a moisturizer.
Sunnycheeka from Nashville
I love this sunscreen! My boyfriend, daughter and I use it.
Lyns from Orlando Florida
So first off, the smell is so good. I felt like it didn't smell like normal sunblock. It has an even spray. When you spray it, it does feel sticky. If you spray a whole bunch in one area, it tends to ball up. I personally sat under a tent at the beach on an extremely hot sunny day. I applied around 12pm and left around 4pm. I did not sun burn. However, my skin naturally has melanin in it, so I tan rather easily. I hardly tanned which is what I personally prefer. I don't like sun lines or sun damage. I did not put this on my face. I use a light weight spf 70 for my face. But i don't think I would have put this on my face anyhow because of how sticky it feels. Eventually the tackiness wore off but if you're a texture person like me, you might not like it. I love how it's vegan and reef friendly too, which was the sole purpose of me buying this spray. I also prefer spray over lotion because when you're already sweaty and/or sandy, it's hard to apply lotion.

I hate how it makes my skin feel hours after. So itchy. I will return.
Linds from New Jersey
I have pale skin and was looking for a new sunscreen that wasn't greasy. I'm giving it two stars because it smells great and it is not greasy. However it still didn't do its job, I'm sunburnt head to toe. Maybe if you tan easily or just want something light its a great smelling and feeling sunscreen but doesn't protect that well.
Love Sun Bum Line
Michelle from Lafayette La
Love the sun bum line. All products I tried have been great.
Awful, so disappointed
Mary from Atlanta
Awful alcoholic smell, not efficient, money waste
Officially my go to!
Amanda S. from Orlando, FL
I've been using a natural SPF 50 sun block that always was so hard to apply on my children's skin and left a white residue. I stayed with it because it was effective. This weekend we tried out the Sun Bum SPF 50 and it was heavenly not only was the scent delicious but it sprayed clear and thin and so easy to apply. After a few seconds it was dry and smooth. Not white and sticky. I would recommend this product to any and everyone.
Stephanie from Richmond
I love it. Smells great and do a really good job on my skin, because I get tan but not burn.
Me encanta! Huele riquísimo y hace un buen trabajo en mi piel, porque me ayuda a broncearme sin quemarme.
Lolo513 from Florida
Does not bleach coral reefs, works well and smells awesome.
Rachel from Missouri
Literally the best sunscreen I have ever used! I'm fair completed & burn pretty easily. I have used this sunscreen all summer and have yet to burn! We spend a lot of time outside on the farm, at the lake or in the pool in the summer and by now I've usually had a bad sunburn. I will buy this sunscreen every year to come! It is worth every penny. ❤️❤️
Worth every penny!
Devon from Amesbury, MA
I tried this a few years ago and absolutely loved it. At first, only a few places sold it and we went out of our way to buy more while we were traveling. My daughter & I have extremely sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all. It also provides excellent coverage without being pasty. I put the zinc cream on everyone's face, ears, neck and then use the spray for our arms/legs. It's been a great combination whether we are at the beach or just in the backyard. It also isn't sticky and has a nice smell so that's an added bonus!
Monclair from CA
I have a lifeguard son & swim team daughter. We go through a lot of sunblock in our house! They loved this so much, much easier to use than the lotion I bought at the same time which is still full.
Is it just me?
Em from Southern California
Okay. So i recently bought this sunscreen (both spray and the face one) and I rarely ever get burned when I go out in the Sun. After using it on different occasions at the beach, I came home with horrible HORRIBLE burns on my face and body both days. I reapplied this sunscreen three times just in case beforehand, but was still just as burned hours later. Not sure if my skin is overly sensitive to this product, but would just like to write a warning because I can't be the only one ;((
MommaMcG from Ohio
Great! Smells good so my son doesn't run away from it. Spray is fine and covers large area. Seems to not sweat off super quickly! Saves us from turning into lobsters!
Rikki from Nebraska
I love this product! If you're out in the sun for a long period of time this will work great. I still like to rub it in. If you want to make sure your skin is protected from sun damage than make sure you reapply.
