The Sun Bum Original SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion is one of the best sunscreens you can buy. In products, the company describes that it is non-comedogenic for sensitive skin. This is perfect because it is safe for sensitive skin and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy like many products that it trying to use that claim to be non-comedogenic.

The sunscreen itself is lightweight, yet intensely moisturizing. It goes on smoothly and dries quickly. It has a pleasant scent, but is not overbearing. The sunscreens UVB and ultraviolet A protection is great for all skin types and protects your skin from both the sun and the environment.

While it is non-comedogenic, you should still be careful to use it every two hours if you are swimming or sweating. As it is water resistant and rated as an all-day wear, you do not have to worry about reapplying the damage done by the sun if you are just spending the day relaxing on the beach, as long as you let it dry properly before applying another layer.

The best features of this sunscreen is that it does everything it claims to do for skin. It provides all the needed sun protection, is gentle and moisturizes your skin like nothing else.
