COPPERTONE CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen Review

We received these products free from BzzAgent to facilitate this review.

I received a 5 fl oz and three of the 1 fl oz COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer™ sunscreens for Sunny Days body lotion in broad spectrum SPF 30 as well as two of the 1.6 oz COPPERTONE® Sunscreen Continuous Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 50.

I love the containers they come in. The 5 fl oz one has a flip top lid and is ergonomic to easily fit in your hand. The mini ones are in a tube and have a screw top lid that seal well so no leakage occurs. The spray is in a aerosol container that has a safety locking feature on the lid so it cannot be sprayed while in a bag or in the hands of a child, just twist the lid top to clockwise to close and counter clockwise to open. The 5 fl oz is great for throwing in a large bag or keeping at home. The little 1 fl oz and 1.6 oz ones are great for throwing in your purse or pack and traveling with you and they comply with TSA travel size regulations.

These all have fragrance to them. I liked the COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer™ 30 SPF body lotion better than the spray because the fragrance of the spray ones were a little too perfume scented for me. The lotion had a mild tolerable scent that wasn't bad at all, but really I could have lived without the scent altogether.

These all protect your skin well from the sun and have good coverage. Since the COPPERTONE® Sunscreen Continuous Spray is 50 SPF it has the most protection from the most damaging UVA/UVB rays. The COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer™ 30 SPF lotion protects good too and if you like something more mild to your skin this is a better choice in my opinion. The 30 SPF is gentle on the skin and won't cause breakouts or clog pores. It also isn't oily on application and absorbs quickly. The spray goes on wet, but dries fast and has a fast and even coverage. These are all water resistant for 80 minutes, then reapplication needs to occur. Also they need reapplying after: sweating, 2 hours go by, or immediately after towel drying. I tried these at the beach and outside while I was in the sun gardening. I didn't burn or break out, so I was very happy with the outcome.

Hi Crystal! These look like great sunblock options. I'm curious if they contain zinc oxide. I'm always on the lookout for great sunscreen over the summer. :)

I read the ingredient labels on both of these sunscreens and they DO NOT have zinc oxide in them. They have other active and inactive ingredients. I do not know anything about the ingredients in these and how healthy they are for you and your skin. If you could let me know your findings that would be awesome! Here are the main active ingredients in both of these: Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 10%, Octisalate 4.5%, Octocrylene 8-9%, Oxybenzone 2% (in the spray one).
