View Full Version : Consumer Reports on Sunblock

Consumer Reports top picks based on price and coverage;

#1. Walgreens Continuous Spray Sport. SPF 50
#2. Coppertone Water Babies. SPF 50
#3 Target Continuous SpraySport SPF 30

These cover from both UVA & AVB

Use spray inside as it will not hit the mark if sprayed outside due to the mist texture.

30 is the base number, adding more gives only marginally higher protection. (From Fox News report)

My problem is the extreme sensitivity my skin has to everything I put on it. I recently tried a fade creme for brown spots and ended up in a full blown exacerbation that started on my skin and moved to my digestive system.

I also suffer from sensative skin and have found that Aveeno is a really good sunscreen. It also comes in SPF 30 and has UVA/UVB coverage. It's also not greasy feeling on the skin.

Sorry everyone I have been doing so good I been busy! I want to THANK YOU all who are here for me and gave me the strength to never give up. I passed a physical exam by a DOT department of transportation who lectured me for 1/2 hour on my rights as a disabled employee, although I only am working on getting my license so I can drive with Dave.

I love you guys

We are never too sick or too old to reinvent ourselves. I have a new borrowed motto; "I have not failed, I just found 1000 ways that don't work" ~Edison
