Sunscreen protects your skin against burn from the sun or suntan and premature aging. So, For all skin types, it is necessary to include it in the skincare routine.

Sunscreen products can be a significant part of protecting our skin from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, also called UV radiation. We all need protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

But which sunscreen provides the greatest protection? So, today we will talk about one well-known brand Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen lotion SPF 50. Let’s see, does it help to protect against both UVA and UVB rays, or does it let some wavelengths through?

Sunscreen doesn’t completely block UV rays. But by using the right product and in combination with other measures including wearing sun-protective clothing, you can reduce your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.

To start providing adequate protection, sunscreen products should have a Sun Protection Factor – known as SPF – of at least 15. But that’s not enough. This will stop some UVB rays but may not stop UVA rays. To protect against both UVA/UVB, you need broad-spectrum protection.

Sun Bum Sunscreens are tested, approved, and suggested by The Skin Cancer Foundation (SCF). The SCF does not support or approve to higher risk products that do not fulfill their stringent standards.

My write-up on Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion

Finally, I have a sunscreen that I can use on my face that doesn’t give me breakouts or a white cast because it’s non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores. I’ve used Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion on the face and other parts of the body and I haven’t had any burnouts or irritation due to it.

It really hydrates my skin a bit. For my dry skin, I need to put body lotion on my face to keep it from flaking, so my minimum requirement here is that the sunscreen doesn’t dry me out, very similar to Neutrogena’s.

With sunscreen, my aloe and gluten allergies make it extremely hard to track down something I can utilize. I was additionally enchanted to find that this product is cruelty-free and vegan, as well.

It feels clean on the skin and is perfect for any beach or sunshine full trip, As it doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky or oily like other sunscreens spray. No allergic reactions and redness from sunburn occur using sun bum sunscreen products.


The sunscreen has a flip-top cap in a yellow-brown colored tube. The tube is traveled friendly as I did not face any leakage issue. The tube makes it convenient to carry and also easy to squeeze out when the product is getting low.

How it feels/smells:

This silky white color cream spread easily and absorbed quickly into the skin. It has a delicious coconut scent and it’s not very thick consistency.

Sun Bum Sunscreen SPF 50

Some mineral sunscreens make my entire body look too white, won’t rub into my skin, and if they get on my clothes will even stain them, depending on what it is.

Some of them feel greasy and I can feel it sliding throughout the day. Not this one. It actually absorbs into the skin and smells good. It’s like putting on lotion, not a greasy sunscreen like water gel sunscreen.

This burns so bad when it gets on the eye area and nostrils. It caused me to blurry and watery eyes. The added fragrance is quite strong which can be an issue for sensitive skin.

If you have sensitive skin, I would suggest a fragrance-free choice for the face, yet it generally comes down to preference.

Sun bum moisturizing sunscreen lotion does not feel oily like other sunscreens and absorbs into my skin quickly. The level of protection is incredible as I’m very fair-skinned and burn easily.

Sometimes I have to reapply at the beach throughout the day but overall one application works great. Sun Bum is by far the best sunscreen I’ve ever used.

This was a decent trade-off between the chemical sunscreens and the mineral. Although not 100% chemical-free, it has less active ingredients than most brands and it works.

Normally Physical or mineral sunscreen contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as active ingredients. The active ingredients in this sunscreen are octocrylene, Octisalate, homosalate, and avobenzone, which are not reef safe. It doesn’t contain two common UV-blocking chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate, So you can say that it is reef-friendly or reef safe.

Why we like it:

Its dermatologist tested and oil-free, water-resistant (80 minutes), and fast-absorbing—all good things. The formula is lightweight and leaves skin soft and smooth, not oily or chalky. It provides UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum Protection and it is Hypoallergenic, vegan, and Reef Friendly. It has Sun Bum Original Scent.

How to use:

15-20 minutes before going outside, apply all areas of the skin, and avoid eye contact. For best results reapply after 80 minutes of sweating. To deliver maximum sun protection apply every 2 hours.
