Self Tanners -Coppertone -Endless Summer Sunless Tanning Gradual Tan Moisturizing Lotion

Love! I'm pretty pale so I was looking to achieve a nice subtle glow, which is exactly what this gradual tanner provides. I favor gradual tanners over regular sunless tanners because I like having control over the color. The smell is perfume-y, but it doesn't have that nauseating smell like your typical self-tanner. I haven't experienced any streaking. Easy to apply. The color is even. It looks very natural. It's also very moisturizing, which is a plus in my book.

Shame that Coppertone has decided to discontinue this product. As soon as I finish my 2 bottles, I'll be on the hunt for a new gradual tanner.

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Coppertone Water Babies Pure and Simple, Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50

Pros:
1. Physical/healthy
2. No irritation

Cons:
1. Leaves white residue
2. Greasy
3. Sticky
4. Hard to rub in

This is my first ever sunscreen, and it made me hate sunscreen. I've never applied something so uncomfortable to my skin (I use it on my face and body), it made my morning routine a nightmare, I dread the thought of having to apply sunscreen. Yet due to my OCD, I had to finish it (I'm actually not totally done with it yet, but almost, after 2 years). This sunscreen made me a strong believer in chemical sunscreen, I don't care if it's bad for you, I only know that I CAN'T stand this white paint anymore.

BTW, I never really know exactly how much sunscreen helps me against tanning (my skin doesn't burn), so I can't really comment on the product's effectiveness. I usually apply sunscreen to make me feel better when being in the sun, lol.

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Oil Free Faces Sunscreen Lotion

I bought this in SPF 50. You have to put on a lot to actually get sun protection, if you don't use enough or rub it in too much you will still get sun spots/sun damage. Unfortunately, putting enough of this on to get sun protection results in an extremely oily, greasy face all day - there's nothing oil free about this. But worst of all, this made me break out in little pimples all over my chin... I am very disappointed. This is definitely not for those who have sensitive/break-out prone skin.

I don't know what I'd do without this product. It's the only spf they have that comes high enough. Even the others that I can rarely find with that high of spf don't work as well at all. Its super thick, which is hard to blend in, but keeps the sun out amazingly because of that. It's super waterproof, you can go swimming for a very long time and itll stay on. Its a little difficult to get off but on the upside it stays on great. I have to keep my tattoo out of the sun while going through laser removal treatments and this keeps it from getting sun almost completely. No sunburn at all either. Great for babies and children.

I bought this because it's for sensitive skin and it was reasonably priced on sale. The first time I tried it, it was an hour after my morning shower and my skin was dry. It came out of the bottle like a thin liquid, but the minute I put it on my arms, it seemed to "solidify" and felt like I was trying to rub in a thick ointment. No matter what I did, it wouldn't apply evenly, just in streaks. Next time I tried it, I hopped out of the shower and applied it. Again, once it hit my skin, it solidified and would not apply evenly. It also made my skin look very white, and that lasted for a while. Also, it was very hard to wash it off the palms of my hands.

I was excited to find this because it has no added scent, but I can't stand the texture. Can't recommend this one to anybody.

I've used this for about 7 years. I have pale skin, live in a sunny climate, and like to be outside often.

I use this year-round, on any part of me that is showing, from face to neck to legs to the backs of my hands. I have dry skin and don't break out often (knock on wood). This has caused absolutely no adverse effects, and I don't burn or tan. I admit that I am not the best about reapplying, and I actually don't go in the water often and can't speak to how waterproof it is.

I currently wear this over a Japanese "toner" (liquid moisturizer), hyaluronic acid, and facial oil. By itself it's very thin and neither greasy nor moisturizing. It doesn't leave a white cast if you rub it in well enough. I don't love the consistency but have definitely gotten used to it over the years.

I recommend it highly as an effective sunscreen that's widely available, affordable, and plays well with my dry skin.

I gave this sunscreen a 2 rating because although it has a high spf and hasn't broken me out, it is very greasy. I will use it when I'm going to the pool, but it is terrible under makeup and when I put my favorite primer over it, the primer rolls up on my face. Won't buy it again because I need something I can use for both the pool and under makeup. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know!!!

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Coppertone ClearlySheer Faces Sunscreen Lotion SPF50

This is a tentative first impression of this product which seems to be the reformulated version of the Clearly Sheer Faces for Sunny Days sunscreen. I did not try the Sunny Days sunscreen so I cannot compare the two unfortunately. I purchased this in Canada for 9.99$ + tax.
The sunscreen comes in a small pump bottle with 2fl oz in it. Hopefully the pump doesn't clog up as the product is used up. A nice touch was the expiry date and ingredients being printed directly on the bottle's label instead of the box, so you can easily compare ingredients or find the expiry date later on if needed.

On first impression, I like the sunscreen. I have somewhat dry, fair skin that's prone to clogged pores, and I can get quite oily by the end of the day on stressful days.
When I first apply it, it does take about 20 minutes to fully absorb and stop feeling a little bit greasy. After that my skin feels moisturized and smooth. I've washed my face and used this as my only moisturizing product and had no problem, but I definitely think I would need an additional moisturizer in the winter if I continued to use this as my daily sunscreen.
In terms of greasiness/ controlling oil this definitely was a good product for me. Used alone I found my skin a lot less oily at the end of a stressful work day (usually I look really shiny) and was happy. I also used this sunscreen under concealer and powder and had no issues, but I haven't yet used this under foundation. There is dimethicone in it, which I guess acts a bit like a primer? I'll need to see.

It doesn't seem to make me break out but I haven't yet needed to wear it for more than 2 days consecutively because of the weather, and I was starting a large breakout before trying the product at all in the first place. I did NOT find this had a white cast, but I'm so pale it's hard to tell unless I use way too much product or don't work it into my skin at all. It DID burn my eyes quite badly when water ran from my forehead down into my eyes. Applying it close to my eyes wasn't a problem unless I rubbed my eyes (and therefore the sunscreen into them).

I will update this review when I've tested this sunscreen during a whole day in the sun and after daily wear for a week or more, and if I use foundation on top of it I'll include my thoughts on that. I still said I would not repurchase this product because even if it doesn't break me out, I'd rather not continue to use some of the ingredients on my face in the long run.

TL;DR

PROS
- Seemed to control oil
- Moisturizing
- Pump bottle
- Expiry printed on bottle, not box
- Sits well under makeup (so far)
- Low price

CONS
- Burns eyes if it drips into them due to sweat/water
- Ingredients contain potential acne triggers/irritants (cosDNA Link: http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_bcde261301.html).
- Scented

I've only used this for about 2 weeks now. But I have acne-prone skin and it hasn't broken me out. It's free of oil, fragrance etc. but it is quite thick and greasy. Make sure to rub it in well or you'll be left with streaks and a white cast (this has 14% zinc oxide). I have light-medium skin with warm undertones and after I rub it in well the white cast mostly goes away, but if you have darker skin it will probably be noticeable. I do use a lot because you're supposed to! If you use just a pea size amount or something you're not gonna get enough protection from any sunscreen at all. I let it settle for about 10 minutes before applying makeup. It does make me look a bit greasy so what I'll do is use a blotting sheet BEFORE i apply foundation, so it doesn't slip and slide too much. If you don't wear foundation you can add a bit of this to your cheekbones and it actually makes a really nice natural-looking highlighter LOL. Overall I think it does the job, I'll keep using it till it's done. I'm not sure if I'd repurchase because I want to try other sunscreens, but maybe. I would give this a 3.5/4 if I could. Also, the body version of this literally has the exact same ingredients but has wayyyyy more product, for pretty much the same price so if you do really like this you might has well buy that and save some money.

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Clearly Sheer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I got this in the spf 50 version. I have sensitive skin that burns easily and is prone to both breakouts and psoriasis. I used this on a trip to Orlando and it worked amazingly well. I have burned through sunscreen before but this one lasted throughout the day and protected me well. I only used this on my body, not face I use biore perfect face milk for that. I love the very mild, fresh scent of this, not the typical sunscreen scent at all. It doesn't pill or feel too thick. I highly recommend this. Would repurchase.

edit - This does rub off very easily on clothing, as someone who wears a lot of black I have to be careful of this. I noticed a lot of staining on my shorts and skirts from this rubbing off of my legs. It does wash off easily. Just be aware of this when wearing it. I try to avoid crossing my legs over clothing etc. I lowered the rating to a 4/5 because of this.

I had to switch to this when Coppertone d/c the yellow label "for sunny days" version. :(


I find these 2 products to be almost exact dupes of each other as far as texture, wearability, nice under MU. My review of the yellow version applies to this:

"This provides a moisturizing (not greasy) sun protection for general usage. If I'm going to the pool, I wear something more heavy duty w/ a higher spf (this is spf 30), but for daily usage, this works great. This is one of the few non-physical SS that doesn't allow my melasma to worsen. No breakouts, no exacerbation of rosacea or melasma, enough moisture for me to use in winter too. Yup - will continue to use this stuff :)"


In comparing the labels, they are VERY close. A few of the ingredients are in a different order, but if memory serves there is very little difference.


1 difference I do notice is the yellow label version - the product separated on me a lot and I always had to shake the bottle a few times to re-incorporate the ingredients. I have not had this issue w/ the blue label version.


I will continue to re-purchase.

I have combination/oily skin and this is too rich for face. I don't mind using it on my neck and chest though, as it doesnt clog my pores.

It's easy to spread and leaves no whitecast. But it looks dewy on the skin, it doesn't dry down satin matte as I wanted it to. If you apply a small amount on your arms it will leave a very slight powdery feel and have a natural but satin finish ( a bit of a sheen, nothing too noticeable).

I think this would be a good option for face/body for people with dry skin, or for anyone to use on their body.

That said when I touch my face my finger picks up some of the sunscreen sheen on it, which worries me. Maybe it rubs off easy then?

Super Shiny, very similar to the shine you get when you slather vaseline all over your face though a bit brightening because this stuff is WHITE. Though I must say the white faded quite a bit on my NC 42, now NC 44 skintone (more on that next). It still looked a bit ashy after fading. Though it said "water resistant" and "broad spectrum" and I applied it thickly, I burnt to a (nice looking) red shade while only one hour out in the direct sun. So this is not even good for your hands because it doesn't prevent burning. I give it two lippies because it IS water resistant and didn't seem to clog my pores.

I've been on the search for a new sunscreen & saw this as walmart for a decent price. I was originally using Aveeno Hydrate & Protect but it kept migrating into my eyes like crazy. I do like this sunscreen but my only gripe about it is, I find it incredibly drying- but most products that claim a matte effect usually means it's not hydrating so I can't really fault them on that. I thought though that I would be able to wear a good moisturizer underneath, so I put First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Balm under it, but a few hours later, it feels like all the moisture's been sucked out of my skin leaving it super tight & dry. I personally would recommend this to any oily ladies out there along w/ combo skins. If you're dry I'd highly urge you to have a heavy duty moisturizer underneath it!
