    Default Banana Boat

    I think they need to push the slip slop slap campaign again.
    Sunscreen is not a guarantee alone, just one step in being sun smart.

    This is likely a parenting failure not a failure of the product.

    Poor kid.

    Yep, user failure, not the sunscreen. If you go out in the sun at around 1:00pm no amount of sunscreen is going to help. Stay in the shade or wear a rashie vest.

    Why aren't their shoulders burnt??

    Unfortunately you can't fix stupid.

    I used to use banana boat sensitive and never had a problem, but this year I grabbed a big 50+ bottle of Kmart brand stuff, and I have to say it's been working better than other brands even though it was cheaper! Though it is generally in the later part of the day (3pm onwards) that they are outside.

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

    Wow didn't know that part. Might change my tune now.

    And aren't all sunscreens unsuitable for babies under 3 or 6 months anyway?

    And yes those photos were very strange the blue part is very odd.

    I agree with the slip slop slap campaign needing to be more prominent as it does now include seek shade and slide on sunglasses as well. They clearly missed the seek shade part!

    Also 'between 11 and 3 sit under a tree' needs more air time too.

    I feel sorry for the poor kids in these photos but at the same time, I'm more inclined to believe user error as well. My DD got a patch of bad sunburn on her cheek once because when I had applied it, I had missed that area. It happens. Nobodies fault but my own.

    Default Banana Boat

    From what I read on this, it's only happening with the spray formulas. Which is not nearly as effective as a cream based sunscreen. I bought a spray once thinking it would be convenient, but when I used it, I could feel there wasn't enough on the kids skin, so have stuck to creams. We use Banana Boat daily and have used the Cancer Councils Pepper Pig cream with no issues. I inherited my grandmas pale English skin and the kids are very fair too, so I slather it on them and they have never been burnt. I'm very sun conscious, so we also do rashies to swim and stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day. But they don't get burnt at school either and I know they play after lunch.

    I agree, unfortunately without attacking the parents, it seems like user error. I actually have both exact same sunscreens - banana boat and the peppa pig one, they've always been great.
    I do wonder if the bub that had the marks from the peppa pig one actually has an allergy to something in this sunscreen or any other sunscreens for that matter? I know DD3 used to break out to certain things, we now avoid them.
