Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen

Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen Review

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start talking sun care! I previously covered Sun Bum’s PRO SPF 50 Sunscreen here. Today, I have the Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray sunscreen!

If you’re looking for a hands-free, easy to apply sunscreen to keep you protected, Sun Bum has got you covered.

The ultra sheer, lightweight, quick drying spray will be your best friend in the summer months. It won’t clog your pores or leave you feeling super greasy. And the best part is, look, ma, no hands! No rubbing in necessary. Just spray and be on your way. It is broad spectrum UVA/UVB Protection, water/sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes.

Like all aerosols, apply liberally for best coverage and don’t inhale the stuff.

Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray sunscreen is paraben free, PABA free, and oil free. It also contains Vitamin E to help fight premature skin aging.

The bottle is your standard aerosol sunscreen container with a turn-to-lock spray nozzle to keep it from going haywire in your pack.

The only con? This sunscreen contains fragrance. If you’re sensitive to smells, especially sweet smells, this might make you feel sick. It has a light coconut scent that is most fragrant (or pungent) upon application. It wears off as the day goes on and it’s not very strong, but it is still noticeable.

All in all, the Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray is a solid item to have in your pack for sunny days.

Buy for $15.99.

Sun Bum PRO SPF 50 Sunscreen

As some of you may know, I run a nail polish blog too. I’m kind of a skincare and nail freak, always on the lookout for new, cool products to hoard in my bathroom drawers.

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for sunscreen for those long hours on the trail. I am deathly terrified of sprouting more moles and getting skin cancer, so a good sunscreen is deeply important to me. Additionally, my skin is an allergic nutjob to nearly everything.

I think I have finally found my holy grail of sunscreen: Sun Bum PRO SPF 50 Sunscreen.

Sun Bum PRO SPF 50 Sunscreen Revoew

This sunscreen is mineral-based, so you don’t get any of those crazy chemicals in regular sunscreen. It’s hypoallergenic, so if your skin is nutso like mine, you won’t get any adverse reactions. Additionally, once you apply it, it sticks in one spot. It doesn’t run into your eyes or melt all over your face. And it doesn’t leave behind any weird, iridescent sheens, either. My boyfriend is kind of weird about helping me apply sunscreen and won’t do it if it gets his hands greasy. This isn’t greasy! And because it’s not greasy, it doesn’t make you break out either.

Other notables? Paraben-free, PABA-free, oil-free, frangrance-free, oxybenzone-free.

The packaging for this is great too! It’s small, round, and ergonomically designed. It fits well in your hand for quick and easy application. Bonus points to the 1.5 oz bottle for being small enough to toss into pants pockets for easy access, and being travel-sized. I’ve been hiking the last couple weeks with this tucked into a side zip pocket. The lid pops up to dispense sunscreen, and slides back down seamlessly. This is not a sunscreen that is going to explode everywhere in your pocket or bag.

The Sun Bum PRO SPF 50 comes in two sizes, 1.5 oz and 3 oz, which retail for $12.99 and $17.99 respectively via the Sun Bum website.

They’ve also got an arsenal of other sunscreen in their product line ranging from lotion to sprays to lip balms and baby products. To check out the full product line, visit this link here. I’m looking forward to eventually picking up the moisturizing sunscreen lotion for summer days.
