Sunscreen in Review: Sun Bum SPF 30

sun bum spf review

First off, let me say I have never heard of the Sun Bum brand before. The name is cute though and the product even cuter…at least the packaging.

I received Sun Bum SPF30 sunscreen and SPF30 Mango and Pink Guava lip balms with SPF30 at no cost to review. I was not compensated for my review and the opinions I’m about to share are my own.

I really like the idea of sunscreen in stick form. It kind of reminds me of deodorant. My only concern is unlike deodorant, the Sun Bum sunscreen has to cover a lot more skin (your entire face) and it kind of doesn’t feel like it’s really being applied to the skin. That more than likely made me apply more than I should. However, the sunscreen was very gentle to my skin.

The lip balm is very nourishing to the lips. However, I found myself needing to reapply often.

So at the end of the day, would I purchase the sunscreen products from the Sun Bum line? Absolutely. They are very gentle and the taste of the lip balm is delicious 🙂
