I love the Joshua Tree sunscreen because they use great ingredients and it’s so effective with just one or two applications. I found myself reapplying the reef safe version more often, but I was also a lot closer to the equator and stronger sun rays than I normally would be when using sunscreen, so I assumed that might be needed. JT sunscreen does take a little longer to apply than aerosol sunscreens, but I will gladly take the extra time knowing I’m using a safe product for my skin and the environment.
We needed reef safe suncreen for a snorkeling trip, so we got this. It smells absolutely edible, and while it’s a bit difficult to rub in, it went on way better than the sunscreen provided by the snorkeling crew. We didn’t burn, but also it was a cloudy day that day, so take that with a grain of salt.
I love this stuff. My husband... not so much.
Without argument - it kept us both very pale while on our tropical cruise (and we're both very pale).
The only issue my husband had with it is that it's very thick and difficult to rub in, especially through hair - he's not super hairy, either.
Otherwise, a lot goes a long way. We bought two canisters for our 7 day cruise and didn't completely go through one (mind you, it's not like we were on the sun deck all daylight hours, either).
Would definitely recommend, but just realize it's got a thick consistency and be a bit difficult to run completely in.
Separates pretty quickly.
Nozzle gets clogged unless you are using daily.
Never really seemed to rub in/soak in completely.
Doesn't stay on very well if you are sweating.
Went back to titanium based sunblocks.
I thought it was a spray but it is a pump.It is a little thick but I rubbed it in well and I will use it again.I don't like the idea of using non-organic sunscreen.
