Stuck in tube

I definitely prefer the SPF30, I had no issues with that one. This one was even thicker and drier and we had to throw half of the tube away. It protects well but makes it difficult to apply on children. Ill stick with the SPF30 or the Sport.
Effective but not the easiest to use

Great and effective product for the little one. The first squeeze is just always a messy mission - seems like the cream forms a hard lump at the bottom. The tube even burst open once.

Easy to apply and highly effective. I love that I can spend care free summer days outdoors with my nieces, playing, swimming, gardening and picnicking, without giving the damaging rays of the sun a second thought.
Tough to use

Unfortunately when I bought this product last year, with great excitement, I felt let down. No matter how much I kneed the tube, the cream and oil did not mix and the cream part was very hard. Had to cut open the tube and use a spoon to mix and eventually just through it away as it was too much work and could not throw it into my beach bag and head for the beach; so this season, even though I really want to buy this product I am having to think again. Not sure if the one I got was a dud or what the reason was for it not working. It smells nice though!
Great protection, pity about the stains.

A really effective sunscreen, but it stains clothes.
Very hard to apply and stains clothes

I wasn impressed with this sunscreen for use on kids. It seperated into oil and solid so you have to mix it in your hand before applying. It takes forever to rub in and spread which is very difficult with two tiny children who hate being sunscreened! It also stains all light clothes with a brown stain which is extremely hard to remove. And its expensive! Won be buying it again.

I wasn massively impressed by this sunscreen. It leaves brown marks on clothes and was a bit greasy I found.
Good product, but stains white material.

Good product, but leaves brown stains on white costumes and shirts.

I use this sunscreen on my 2 year old son. I apply it every morning before he goes to school and then also when he is out in the sun at the pool and so forth. He has never been burnt. It is easily absorbed and smells pleasant. I also feel better that there are no nasty chemicals being absorbed by his skin! Will not use anything else on him!!
Incredible sunscreen: safe, natural and effective.
Incredible sunscreen: safe, natural and effective. This uses Zinc Oxide, which means theres virtually no risk of skin irritation. A bit greasy? Yes. But otherwise its probably one of the best natural sunscreen in the world.
My children have terrible allergies and their skins have flared up every time that I have ever used any sunscreen in the past.
My children have terrible allergies and their skins have flared up every time that I have ever used any sunscreen in the past. I was quite desperate when I googled sunscreen for sensitive skins. I eventually landed up on your website and came across the Sunumbra SPF30 Sunscreen. I have to admit that I was slightly apprehensive because of the price, but out of desperation, knowing that we were headed for the coast for the holidays and knowing that my children are true water babies, I took two tubes…
It was worth every single cent that I paid. I applied tons of the stuff onto my three children’s skins, constantly, every single day except for New Years day which was raining and we spent the entire day indoors… and I still have about half of the second tube left.
What an amazing product! Not only did it protect my children from the damage caused by the sun, but it moisturized and nourished their skins. We usually return from our holidays with our children looking terrible. I looked at my son’s face just last night and marveled at the healthy glow of his tanned cheeks.
i use this on my face, and it works perfectly.
i use this on my face, and it works perfectly...! feels a little oily when first applied, but i don break out in spots like i usually do with other sunscreens... the smell and texture are a little weird however...
so happy with this product.
so happy with this product. it absorbs easily and does not leave a thick white layer on the skin. is a SPF 40 which makes it higher than the other natural brands on the market. Locally produced and making use of SA essential oil of Cape Chamomile as it's scent. lovely!
Brilliant!!!! non greasy, smells great.
Brilliant!!!! non greasy, smells great. MY daughter can finally go out in the sun as this sunscreen does not bringher out in a rash like all the commercial ones!! I am very pale and for the first time in my life I did not burn but have developed a beautiful golden hue, awesome!
GREAT Product. Im so happy I have found a sunscreen that works with my skin and protects it with a high 40 SPF :). I dont have to worry about looking out for SPF beauty products because all I need is this which is great since a lot of products that contain SPF irritate my skin. After I moisturize I apply a pea size amount onto my face and thats it.I have sensitive skin therefore I use the Sunumbra Kids but Im sure the normal one is just as good. Im totally sold on Sunumbra. :)
