stuff works as long as you know where you sprayed it


I'm almost as white as you can get, so I need a high and long-lasting SPF level. I also don't like lotions, so hearing about sunblock sprays as an option, I had to try it out. It lasts for hours, really. I used to spray the stuff on my legs and arms when I'd work outside at Disneyland for about 8 hours a day. It's a little sticky, but it works so well that I can't complain. It does use up fast, and it's expensive; those are the worst things I can say about it. The scent isn't that bad, and I'm the picky type when it comes to that. Just be careful about where exactly you spray it: one day I missed the back of one of my calves, and the burn left a huge red welt on my skin that told everyone where I forgot to put my sunscreen! After that incident, you can believe I make sure I get every square inch with the spray. I've tried other sunblock sprays as well, and they are good, but Aveeno outdoes everyone I've tried, hands down.

Excellent protection recommended by dermatologists


I love the Aveeno Continuous Protection sunblock spray.  I use it on myself and my three children (they are 5,3 and 10 months.  It goes on very easily and provides excellent protection from the sun's harmful rays.  My dermatologist's office recommends this product based on the fact that it more evenly maintains its level of protection longer than other products.  It's so easy to use since you just spray it on and go.  One thing to note is that it is not easily used for faces so I do purchase a separate lotion-type sunblock to use on my kids' faces.  To use this product on the face, you have to spray some into your hand and then rub it on.  I find it easier just to use a product made for faces than to use this product that way.  I do wish it came in larger containers.  Since we have a family of five, we can go through one of these containers pretty quickly.  This product does tend to be a bit pricier than some other sunblocks but I think it is well worth it.  The convenience of application, the continuous level of protection and the lack of sunburns on my kids all convince me to purchase this product over and over again.

I finally found a good spray on sunscreen: Aveeno 70 SPF


**Aveeno Continous Protection Sunblock Spray Active -New!** Aveeno Continous Spray comes in SPF 45, SPF 55 & SPF 70. I love to be outdoors.  I'd rather play tennis than on-line games, I'd rather pull weeds than sweep floors and I prefer a good hike to an aerobics video.  However,  I am a skin cancer survivor who takes no chances with sun damage. I wear hats and SPF 70 sunscreens. Because of the convenience of reapplication, I've tried to like spray on sunscreens but I haven't had a lot of luck.  Hard to spray, sticky icky, stinky, blotchy... you name it and there's a sunscreen spray out there that lives up to it.  Aveeno Active really is different. The package says that Aveeno Continous Protection Sunblock Spray Active has beeswax to form a sheer protective layer over the skin. **Here's why I like Aveeno Active Sunblock Spray:** It sprays in any direction, even upside down. It's important.  Think about trying to spray your ankles. It's not greasy. Sprays on evenly. Smells pleasant. Doesn't stain clothes. Works to provide protection from the sun. I do not use this, or any other spray on my face so I can't recommend or comment on that but I do use it from below the head to toe and I've had no issues at all with it. I use [Aveeno Sunblock Face][1] on my face. ***My Viewpoint: *** I like Aveeno products and I want SPF 70 protection.  This is the best sunblock spray I've ever tried.  I'll keep using it.   [1]:

Nice and Light


I really love this sunscreen. It is very easy to apply and goes on light and absorbs into the skin without being greasy or messy. I have found that it is an effective sun protector as long as you make sure to spray and apply to all your exposed spots.

Likin' It!


I am always on the hunt for a sunscreen that works, is water/sweat proof and doesn't make your skin feel like you just rolled in grease. I think I have finally found that product. This product goes on easy with the spray that even worked upside down. It doesn't feel greasy on your skin the 45 protections really seemed to work when I was outside all day (re-applied 2x) and the scent was not unbearable (many actually commented that they liked the scent) The prize is comparable to other name brand products of this type. The only "Con" I had about this product is that it ran into my eyes with some sweat and really that was not cool. I will have to still find another product for my face.

Works Great


This is not sticky at all. It has an easy application and no waste because you only have to \spray once.  My daughter, who has severe allergies could use it as well.  We love the fact that if it gets on clothes there is no stain or residue and reapplicaiton is a snap rather than a gooy lotion.  Can't wait for the height of summer to use it again because it left my skin so soft and smooth.
