    Default Recommend me a good sunscreen

    We are travelling overseas in a few weeks and I will need to pack plenty of sunscreen. On a whole I really hate sunscreen, I hate how it feels on my skin, how difficult it can be to apply, the smell. But it is one of those things, you have to use it!
    I'm looking for something that is not greasy, not too heavily perfumed, preferably for sensitive skin (especially for the kids). Don't care how much it costs, will be happy to pay a bit more for something that feels good on my skin considering I'm going to be covered in it for 11 days!

    On my no list so far is:

    Any Nivea sunscreen - much like their creams and lotions way too greasy and perfumed.

    Aldi Brand sunscreen - again too greasy

    Im like you and hate the feel and smell of sunscreen. I like Invisible Zinc though. Its a little more expensive but well worth it in my opinion.

    I think it's called sun sense. It is a spray sun screen. Pump bottle. It doesn't feel greasy on your skin at all

    I like the Cancer Council Kids 50+ (new formula). I think it's the same as the sensitive one just in different packaging.

    I second this one. I Use it everyday on dd for school. I use it on the whole family including myself when we go out.
