Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by sassygrams Perfect for pale and sensitive skin!
So EASY to apply! Hardly any smell at all, and I think the product says "no smell." When I'm out in the sun I can re-apply it often, even when I'm hot and sweaty #football games#.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by JenniferL Hyper-allergic to everything but this product!
I've been allergic to chemical sunscreens all my life (I'm pushing 40). Every time I found a physical sunscreen on the market, with titanium dioxide as the main ingredient, it wouldn't be waterproof. I'm extremely pale, and so hyper-allergic that even touching a doorknob from someone who's wearing sunscreen can put me in the ER.
When my husband found this product, I was overjoyed. I have 2 children, and my whole family uses this religiously during the summer months. I've never had a break-out, neither has my kids. This is a thick sunscreen, so if you apply too much, your skin will have difficulty "breathing," as it were, leading to itchiness (I wonder if this is what happened with some of the negative reviewers). Also, like any sunscreen product, you must diligently reapply (e.g. a 60 spectrum must be applied every 60 minutes).
I can literally apply this sunscreen all day long and not even tan. It is an absolute miracle sunscreen for someone like me who's spent much of her life avoiding pools, the beach, etc. due to the allergic reactions. Now, I can play in the pool with my kids knowing they're protected and I won't break out in hives from touching them.
My only complaint is that the sticks are too small. I wish they made larger ones. We run through these far too quickly.
PLEASE don't stop making this product! It's a life saver for hyper-allergic people like me!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by vtmom2 Son had reaction
I put this on my 3 & 5 year old. My 3 year old ended up shortly after applying getting a red rash on his face. I went to the store and got some of the Wet Kid kind and applied that and we did not have any issues with that. My oldest had no issues.
They both get a little mad when I have to rub to get this sunblock worked in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by CAChristina My son got sunburned
I applied a lot of the sunblock to my son's face and neck today before he went on a field trip today where they were going to be outside. He came home lightly sunburned, except on his arms, where I used a different sunscreen. I am disappointed and will throw this away.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Jocelyn's Mom It didn't work at all.
I used the Pure & FreeÂ® Baby Sunscreen Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 60 on my 2 and a half year old's face ears and neck before going to the beach. I reapplied often, and used a lot of the product each time.
I used a different product on the rest of her body.
That night, we discovered her face ears and neck were sun burned. she was red, itchy and so uncomfortable. The rest of her body was just fine, no sunburn at all. The rest of our trip we used the other product on her face, and it worked just fine, although harder to apply. I will never buy this product again. I am so disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by redhead711 Finally!!! Friendly to those allergic!
Thank Heavens! I am so happy to find a product that does not contain Vitamin A! I'm severly allergic to fish, and can use any fish oil derived products. Almost all sunscreen (even baby, or sensitive formulas) have vitamin A in them. This works for me, no rash after. It's great to carry in your purse or car. I an a fair skinned redhead who drives a convertible. Now I can put the top down when the mood strikes me, knowing I always have sunscreen! If I am paleness is protected from the sun, anybody else will be as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Heliophobe Ginger Easy to carry and no goo!
I have sensitivities to salicylates so I grabbed this out of desperation. Easy to pop in pocket or purse, no potential for leakage. Yeah, it does leave a white film on your skin but you won't look like a mime. I use these up faster, because I use them on arms legs etc. too, but it's less wasteful than having to toss a nearly full tube of expired sunblock.
