Sunscreen -Coppertone -Clearly Sheer For Beach and Pool SPF 50

I bought this based on reviews on another site. I like the idea it's clear and seems to spread easily and dries quickly. The problem with this product is it starts to flake off. I don't understand why this happens but it's not helpful if it doesn't stay on the skin. Oh well.


Sunscreen -Coppertone -Continuous Spray SPF 30

I have this but in SPF 50. This was the first time I've ever tried a spray and it was just alright. I liked that it was lightweight and convenient to throw in my purse and it was easy to apply. Let me just say the smell is just plain awful. It smelled like a nasty chemistry laboratory gone wrong. I could not just spray this on my face so what I did was spray it on my clean hands and rubbed it in that way. I may try a spray again if it doesn't smell so bad but for now I'm going back to my beloved Coppertone sunblock lotion which smells as fresh as a beach.


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

I really love this sunless tanner!!! I always prefer the "gradual" types of sunless tanners as they: are more subtle, easier to control in terms of the depth of your tan, and any mistakes fade quicker than with the full on sunless self-tanning options. This product smells delightful, and appears as a thick, white, almost fruity smelling creamy lotion. The packaging is simple, no-frills, and the color this tanner turns you is awesome! Even on very pale skin colors, which we all know are notoriously difficult to fake bake a realistic shade of brown, turn a beautiful, bronze-y gold with this gradual tanning lotion. I think it's an awesome product for the price, And is comparable to Estée Lauders Bronze Goddess Self Tanner in quality. I've used that, and Lorac's selfTANtalizer and the Coppertone hands down wins in quality & value. Shoot, for $8-$10 you CANNOT gI wrong, and you'll have a gorgeous glow and about fifty extra bucks in your wallet to boot. If you're in the market for a gradual tanning lotion, grab it at the drugstore. Its the bees knees, ladies & gents. I WILL repurchase.

This sunscreen has a tendency to leave a chalky residue. It will collect in elbow and knee creases. It doesn't feel slimy like some sunscreens.

This is a lot better than the Clearly Sheer Sunny Day SPF 30. It has an actual lotion formulation and therefore is easier to handle (the Sunny Day formula is very runny; if you don't shake it only liquid with some bits of product comes out), and has a higher SPF. The formulation is OK, but for a basic sunscreen with a high SPF and smooth texture, this is a good buy.


Sunscreen -Coppertone -Oil Free Faces Sunscreen Lotion

foto

I have Oil Free Faces Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50+ & it's definitely my Holy Grail; I use it as my everyday sunscreen. Where I live, it's well over 100 degrees almost every single day during the summer—even at nighttime. Anyway, about a week ago, I thought it would be a lovely idea to walk about 20 minutes in that weather & needless to say, my skin was not happy. After I got where I was headed, I applied this sunscreen lotion to my face before going out & had no further issues after that. I didn't sunburn or peel! It's lightweight & it does absorb quickly into my face. I didn't have a white cast or residue on my face after application & it's non-greasy. I trust Coppertone as a brand, but was actually really surprised that I didn't have clogged pores & didn't break out because my sensitive, acne prone skin doesn't react well to too many products put on it. Protecting it from the sun was always such a chore until I picked this up. I only bought one bottle because I was weary about it. If I see it again, I'll buy another. I really suggest buying & wearing it this summer!

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Sport for Face spf 50

on 7/6/2014 2:37:00 PM

My skin is fair and severely sensitive. In the past I've had "dermatologist approved" sunscreens break me out in photo-sensitive rashes that resulted in blisters and scarring. I tend to have really good luck with Coppertone products and this one was no exception.

This sunscreen does have a beachy sort of sunscreen fragrance and it does leave a slight white cast and sheen on the skin. However, it works really well, doesn't sting, and it doesn't cause any break outs or sensitivity for me. The fact that it's super affordable too is just an added bonus. I will definitely continue to buy this product.

I was using Jergens for about 3 weeks before I found this wonderful gem.
First, a word about Jergens: it does not feel like a lotion. It is just a tanner. It gave me an oddly colored, somewhat uneven tan (didn't tan my legs at all? I dunno why?) and it stopped working altogether for some reason.
So, I grabbed this. The packaging is simple and clean. It smells wonderful and is legitimately MOISTURIZING. And the color is just amazing...not orange, but brown and bronzy. I know it's meant to be gradual, any maybe it's that way for certain people, but it was immediate on me. Just a day passed, and I could see the difference! It works so well, isn't patchy, and is very easy to apply! I will buy more again when I'm finished.

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Tattoo Guard Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50

foto

Coppertone Tattoo Guard Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50 is a UVA/UVB sunscreen lotion that helps protect against UV rays that can fade or blur tattoos; if you're heavily tattooed, you know how awesome & important the thought of this is as tattoos are susceptible to sun damage. As luck would have it, I happened across Tattoo Guard at my local 99¢ Store where there were a bunch of other Coppertone products were available. Item description: helps prevent sunburn (of course), won't irritate sensitive skin, moisturizing formula, great for larger tattooed areas.

Naturally, I was skeptical of whether or not it would work & protect tattoos. In contrast, I trust the Coppertone brand & for a dollar, it could hurt to try—not to mention SPF 50! I initially bought it for my fiancé as he has two full sleeves & a chest piece; I bought it for him to replace the cocoa butter he usually rubbed on his arms prior to sun exposure. He & I both like this sunscreen. One of the things I love the most about this is that it's moisturizing, yet non-greasy. I don't get that weird white/grey film a lot of sunscreens leave. It does, however, have that typical "sunscreen smell." If you buy Tattoo Guard from a "normal" store, it's about $7. I highly recommend.

NOTE: This is not tattoo aftercare. This sunscreen lotion is intended to protect healed tattoos from sun damage.

This is a review for the "faces" product that comes in the small pump bottle.

I think the photo where it looks separated is from the larger bottle and it probably hadnt been shaken very well. I have both of these products and I LOVE them.

The small pump bottle sunscreen has a creamy consistency, is very lightly scented (still shades of the classic Coppertone scent, but lighter and crisper) and goes on matte. It doesnt matte out your skin if its oily, but the product itself is not a shiny greasy sunscreen. I am absolutely CRAZY about this product. Love the packaging as well.

The larger bottle is also matte, but as it instructs on the bottle it needs to be shaken up before using. I would recommend that once you think you have shaken enough shake a half-minute more. Make sure the lid is closed tightly or hold a finger over it and shake vigorously! :)

HELL NO!! I bought this at BJ's ($16.99 for 3 large continious spray bottles). I like the idea of a spray cause I'm lazy. This was AWFUL. First I tried the Coppertone KIDS version (blue/green/gray packaging) and could not believe such a product ever made it past a test group. It stunk like the nastiest bug spray you've ever come in contact with, was stickier than duct tape, and made me look like I just had a bath in Crisco. I promptly returned it and swapped it out for this version (grey/blue/orange packaging). This version is just as bad. The only difference between the two is the smell. While this one wasn't quite as bug spray gone bad, it still had a repulsive scent, and I'm not one to normally care about scents. Still just as greasy, and still just as sticky. Another return. Went over to Target and got good old Hawaiian Tropic sheer touch lotion. Yeah it takes a few seconds longer than a spray, but it smells absolutely delicious, no grease, no stickiness.

Wonderful smell compared to the other options on the shelf. I was lucky enough to score the last bottle on the shelf despite the fact the entire shelf of other products were bulging at the seams. If that is any indication! Used it for several weeks and am very happy with the results. I am a blond, green-eyed, medium complexion gal with a tendency to burn, eventually tan but only to a certain point. My family went to Hawaii several times growing up and the drill was get off the plane, get "leid", take a snap then going home after vacay get "leid" and take a snap. My PU's and sibs would be deliciously bronzed and I looked like a ghost (Dad= German, Amer Indian, Mom= Croatian). This gives me a leg up (not to mention the rest of my skin). it is a cheap pump bottle so stash it in the medicine cabinet cuz it is no showstopper to look at. One coat is all you need to feel more sun-kissed. I use my damp towel to exfoliate before applying. BTW, I even use it on my face! It gives me a pretty shade of tan and although my skin is sensitive, it works for me. Price is fab at Walmart. One bottle should last for a while as ya get 9 full oz.

Sunscreen -Coppertone -Oil Free Faces Sunscreen Lotion

I always seem to come back to this sunscreen. A few months ago I ran out of it and I decided to try another one from Coppertone with zinc oxide for sensitive skin spf50. Not only was the formula thick and left my face ashy white, it was extremely thick which caused white heads all over my cheeks. This formula is gentle, goes on smooth, and does not cause acne (my skin is sensitive). The only con I can think of is how stings when it gets in your eyes, so you need to be careful applying. Otherwise it's a great sunscreen for everyday and under makeup.


Sunscreen -Coppertone -clearly sheer for sunny days faces

I use as my full body (minus face) sunscreen. It is a broad-spectrum chemical sunscreen. As the other reviewer mentioned, it does have a strong scent. I don't dislike it, but it is unnecessary and slightly annoying (Coppertone describes it as "lemon-lime citrus with floral notes"). I do find that it absorbs quickly. The thing which bothers me a bit is the texture. It reminds me of yogurt - it can get chunky and you see the liquid separating from the solid even after shaking. I would say it looks oily, but this doesn't even contain oil, so I'm not sure what it is. I posted a picture where I had applied it to the back on my hand (you can see that my skin is a bit "shiny" because of this) and the seperation of liquid from solid is visible around the edges. I have tried to use this a few times where only the clear liquid came out of the bottle.

I tried using this on my face one day and it stung my eyes like crazy! It also makes my nose run. It was awful. Overall, I don't see anything amazing or horrible about this sunscreen. It's kind of average for drugstore stuff.

I use sunscreen all year round and ran out of my usual face sunscreen. This caught my eye in the store and I thought I'd give it a try. Since it is spf 30 I figured it wouldn't feel heavy as some of my higher spf sunscreens can.
I'm sure it works as a sunscreen but I didn't like it. My biggest problem is the smell. I didn't like it at all. I don't know how to describe the smell only to say it was annoying/gross in the same way that a self tanner is if that makes sense. I'm trying to use it up as quickly as I can so I can use something else. I usually use:
Neutrogena sheer for face or L'oreal Sublime Sun for face...both of which I like.

Yes, I am adding that after a few days, my bottle of sunscreen is all oily/slimy looking...like yogurt that melted in the sun...just like the reviewer above me mentioned. gross.
