When it comes to sunscreens, I typically stick to the lotion types. The banana boat sport performance is my typical brand. What I love about this sunscreen is that it lasts long, and it doesn't easily wear off. The formula is made to hold up to sweat, heat, and large amounts of moisture. This is especially beneficial if you're going to be super active, or be in the swimming pool all day. It's also not too abrasive on your skin, so I would recommend it to anyone who has sensitive skin. Overall, I can't really think of too many negatives. It's priced reasonably, and with 50 SPF, will give you all the protection you need (unless you live in an area that just hammers you with sun rays). Great product. Scent It has a very mild scent which doesn't really smell like anything. I doubt it would even bother the most sensitive of noses. Absorption At first it may seem a little greasy, but it absorbs rather quickly, and doesn't wash off easily. Longevity You can go hours without reapplying. I've been using it for years when I was out in the sun for long periods of time, and it's done a great job of protecting my skin. Effectiveness With an SPF of 50, it's effective against most of the sun's damage. Ease of Application Easy to put on. Just apply it like any other sunscreen lotion.
