    Default Sunscreen - which one?

    I wasn't sure where to put this, mods please move if need be.

    I need to buy more Sunscreen and/or Sunblock some sort of stuff that will stop 2 adults and a child from getting sunburnt on a holiday.

    Obviously everyone's opinion is different but have you found any that have been good for application, price etc

    I have looked and looked but honestly don't know what (if any) the difference is between products and if price really does play a role. I look at the wall in the supermarket and have no idea.

    Suggestions appreciated

    We use Wotnot sunscreen - it's free from parabens and titanium dioxide and is made from natural ingredients and is 30+ , I get it from my organic shop but check on line

    We use the banana boat yellow spray bottle - I think it's a kids one but works fine for adults too.

    I use the Cancer Council ones because they are free from nano particles. I like their 'Everyday' one as it's not too heavy.

    I use the bannana boat dry touch kids. It dosent leave my skin sticky like some sunscreens and being kids it's sensative (normally I use sensative bannana boat, but it's not water resistant like the kids)

    The sport one is good as well, dh uses that one

    I heard a segment on the radio last week saying no brand is better than any other as long as you replace them every 12mths

    We have been using the Coles brand one in the orange/white tube.
    We have found it good for the kids and adults.

    DS has an allergic reaction to the kids Cancer Council one.

    We have also tried Banana Boat and that's good for the family too.
