    Default Banana Boat

    This company has a lot to answer to. As a season pro of sunburn and being red head I have never seen sunburn to this extent!!!

    This is not sunburn this is a chemical burn or something else caused by their products.

    I sunbaked for 4 hours trying to get bronzed like my friend without sunscreen. Oh I would go red very red but never like this!

    Banana boat your a joke trying to dodge a law suit. I challenge the ceos to put it on and go down to the beach for a few hours.

    This is also happening with PEPPA PIG sunscreen. Please if you have it DON'T USE IT.

    Hun that look so utterly painful. Hope you've got some aloe Vera and ice and to put on it

    I saw the story about it the other day. Chucked ours in the bin although it was just the ordinary not Peppa pig. Bought one from aldi for like $4 so far so good.

    I've been using the aerosol Banana Boat this summer with no issues (apart from it leaving yellow stains on one of my white tops).

    Won't be repurchasing it after seeing some of the burns. Nasty stuff

    We wear it and have never had a problem with it - we use the baby one. My son has very sensitive skin too and has never had a problem with it.

    The picture above looks like bad sunburn, probably because they've used the aerosol and not applied anywhere near enough.

    Banana Boat Sensitive is the only sunscreen that doesn't cause a skin reaction for me (including the natural sunscreens I've tried) and I've been using it for several years. Unless they've changed formulas since I last bought it, I'll keep buying it.
    Having said that, DH & I bought Banana Boat sunscreen in Bali after we forgot to pack ours, and half an hour after applying it we were in the bathrooms at Waterbom Park trying to rinse it off because it was burning our skin! We figured it was something to do with it saying SPF50+, when at the time SPF30+ was the highest available in Australia - or just that it was manufactured somewhere different or something.

    I disagree. The mum who used Peppa pig was using it all
    over her 3 month old baby's body. Why does a baby need sunscreen all over their body?

    And this poor girl. Her mum had her out on the middle of a heat wave in Australia with an extreme uv index and didn't make her child wear a rashie. I blame her, not sunscreen.

    Choice tested the claims of sunscreens and banana boat came out one of the best.

    Both myself and my kids and DH have never had a reaction to both Cancer Council and Banana Boat.

    I prefer the lotion/cream over aerosol as I personally thought spraying left enough coverage.

    I also hate being in the sun all day or in the middle of the day. We tend to take the kids out and back in before 9 in the summer and 10 in winter and venture out after 4 or 5.

    For swimming/pool/beach DD and DS have long sleeves, hat and shorts. Sunscreen everywhere else.

    I will add I found it so hard to find swimmers for DD (9 months) that had sleeves and shorts. She wears DS's hand me down ones as well but so many were cute but impractical as they barely covered any skin on arms, front, back and legs.
