    Invisizinc - u can get it at any Woolies or Coles and its pure zinc so no nasty chemicals like most sunscreens have in them. It rubs right in too leaving no residue

    Neutrogena has a new sunscreen out, one for adults and one for kids. It's a good brand for facial cleansers so it might be good as a sunscreen too?

    I've used many sunscreens being fair skinned. The latest one I'm using is Coles' Everyday one. It's surprisingly non greasy for a lotion.

    Cancer Council do a nice one for faces, it's in a white tube and called Day Wear. I doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy and looking white. I also like their new 50+ it's not greasy and rubs in nicely.

    I use this one as it's milky rather than creamy.

    I've tried Invisible Zinc but it's just too hard to rub in and not so invisible on the skin afterwards. Just my opinion on it.

    Chemical sunscreens give me heat rash so I now use invisible zinc. U like the woolworths brand one as it is thinner and a bit easier to rub on.

    Thanks for all the replies, I think I may try the invisible zinc.
    I do like the hamiltons sunscreen as well. Myself and the kids have very sensitive skin and I have had quite a few reactions to different sunscreens. Given that we will need to cover ourselves from head to foot several times a day for 11 days I'm just hoping I get it right

    Banana Boat Sport 50+, if you get the milk it is non-greasy & easy to apply.

    I have a red haired, fair skinned DD & I use banana boat on her body and invisible zinc on her face.

    Sure have and it works fine. It is thick to apply but soaks in really well and no white cast. I don't trust chemical sunscreens anymore!
