      • limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
      • wear long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses
      • before use on children under 6 months: Ask a physician

    How to activate pump:

    1. With the cap cover in place over the pump, invert the container upside down and tap firmly 4‐5 times. (This will force the liquid up into the actuator and create a vacuum).
    2. Return the container to its upright position.
    3. Remove the cap, and with the nozzle away from your face, press the pump to dispense the product into your hand. It may take several pumps to completely prime the pump to allow the actuator to deliver product.
    4. If pump continues to fail, try steps again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen, ever! I have used this product for a couple of years. The best product on the market. Most sunscreens are sticky and smell. This one - no smell and is quickly absorbed, you cannot tell you have it on. I play tennis alot in Texas in the summer and really need a fantastic product. I have found this to be the best. I have recommended this product to family and friends and they also are using this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunscreen is always been an issue for me because it makes my skin break out because it clogs my pores. After talking to a dermatologist I was recommended to use this sunscreen. I Donely is it gentle on my body, but it’s very good for protecting the sun. There’s no parabens or artificial ingredients, and definitely is water resistant. I also use a facial ONLY EltaMD And it’s nothing but gentle on my face. However, when I’m in the tropics and I want to go in the water I use the water resistant full body sunscreen on my face and I’ve never had a problem. I only use the facial only when I am day-to-day living. A bit pricier than some sunscreens but worth every penny.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible product After a few minutes of EltaMD UV Sport Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 on my skin--arms and chest--my skin was so irritated and itched so badly that I was clawing at it and had to wash it off. In addition to the immediate irritation, my skin turned red with blisters for over 24 hours later. And I don't have sensitive skin. A friend with sensitive skin tried it and had red, irritated, itchy skin for a couple of months. I have used Elta UV Clear SPF46 (facial) for several years and have recommended it, but I do not recommend EltaMD UV Sport Broad-Spectrum SPF 50. Buyer beware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I suffer from melasma and heat and sun can activate it. I found this sunscreen a couple of years ago and it is the only one that works! I hike and run and it does not drop down. I also have acneic skin and this does not break my skin out. I mix it with my foundation and it goes on beautifully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This sunscreen is my holy grail! It has 16% zinc which makes it very difficult to rub in. However, as a lifeguard, it is worth investing in a super protective sunscreen that lasts all day. Even though it says to apply more regularly, I wore this sunscreen out at the ocean for five hours without reapplying with a UV index of 12 and I did not burn ONE bit! It is absolutely incredible. It is pricey, but it is worth it to prevent your skin from skin cancer and aging from sun damage. It is 100% sweat and waterproof. You do have to scrub it off by the end of the day (using a washcloth or loofah), but that just proves how GREAT this sunscreen stays put. I would definitely recommend it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been using this for a few weeks and like how easily the lotion applies. It is not too thick or runny. The lotion spreads easily and does not leave a white residue. So far I use it mostly for my face and arms. It does leave my face shinny. However, it is not greasy. I have very dry skin. As a result I don't mind having a little shine. My makeup goes and stays on over the sunblock. The only part that keeps me from giving it a 5 star is the active ingredients. It has zinc oxide. Which is a plus. It also has a few chemical active ingredients, as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product really works well. I have been using this product for 3 months and it really protects and does not cause any irritation when I sweat. The other bonus is that it does not stain the clothes that I wear or cause white streaks on my work out clothes.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do not buy pump! The pump bottle has a small wax stopper on the bottom that melts quickly and causes ALL of the lotion to leak out. If you purchase this, never take outside!
