Sun Protection Measures

Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease the risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a Broad Spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:

  • limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses

When Vanicream™ Sunscreen Sport SPF 35 is used as directed with other sun protective measures, it helps provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays (UVA and UVB) and decreases the risk of skin cancer and aging. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant which helps prevent damage to the skin by neutralizing free radicals produced when skin is exposed to the sun.

Love it
I’ve used this product for about two years and love it. It’s not greasy and protects my skin well. I’m always satisfied.

Love the Sunscreen
This sunscreen is all I use. It protects well, and I have no reactions to it! Can’t wait until it is available again.

Good except for the octinoxate
I really like this sunscreen because its moisturizing and the white cast is minimal and it doesn't irritate my rosacea but unfortunately octinoxate burns my eyes no matter how careful I am to make sure it doesn't get near my eyes. This sunscreen would be perfect if Vanicream ditched the octinoxate and went with zinc oxide only.

I have fare skin and this sunscreen did not work for me. After swimming in the pool for an hour, it looked as if all of the skin on my face was going to peel off. Before putting the sunscreen on, my face was not particularly dry or cracked. After, I looked like I had been in the desert without any moisturizer. I was not very satisfied with the product.

vanicream sunscreen sport spf 35
I have Rosacea and have been using it forever, since my face started breaking out in pustules whenever I went out in the sun. I read about it in the Rosacea Review Newsletter. It has been a life saver for me. I love it. Only problem I have to special order it. I used to get it at Target but since they have become CVS they will no longer do this. I am trying Rite Aid right now.

I like this product for my kids. It works well to protect them from the sun. My skin is darker than theirs and somehow I still get tan when I use this product although I reapply often. Does it work less well on darker skin than lighter skin? Although, the description says it is non-greasy , it is very greasy. I wish it could be made more matte. Overall though, I love it that I’m putting something anti-allergenic and non-toxic on my kids!

The "Happy Skin" sunblock
I have rosacea and discovered a while back that I am not able to tolerate titanium dioxide on my skin. Finding a zinc only sunblock is surprisingly difficult but I am so happy I found this one. I love the texture–yes it’s emollient but I have drier skin and it works great as a daytime moisturizer. The whiteness goes away completely and I have not burned yet in the two years I’ve been using it. Thanks for making a great zinc only option.

Sport 35
I think the 35 spf is much better for faces than anything else I’ve used and I’m in the sun on my bike 5 days a week and walking 2 days. Never irritates eyes and doesn’t clog pours. Great product.

Protect face
I purchase to use on my face and it protects better than anything else I’ve used in 50 yrs. I bike 5 days a week and have to hacpve something that does not burn or affect my eyes. I like the 35 soft better than the 50.

This is now my preferred facial moisturizer/sunscreen. I’m in my 50’s and this lotion is the best to plump up tired looking skin. I have sensitive skin that can break out and I’m now on my 5th tube and not one breakout. It helps keep my wrinkles at bay too☺ I would recommend letting the lotion set for about 20 mins. after application if it will be used under makeup.

Absoluely Wonderful
I use this product as my day moisturizer over my anti-aging serum every day and it works perfectly. In fact, I find it very hydrating. i use upward strokes and it just absorbs into the skin perfectly. I have been using this for a year and will continue to use it. I like it because it is totally free of irritants for my skin. Please get it back in stock…
