I use that Sun block loation and my skin have gotten really dark lately. Even if you apply sun block, you'll get tanned. Sun block will just reduce the tanning a bit and protacts you from the harmful UVA/UVB, whatever rays that causes your skin to get older/wrinkles and skin cancer.

it really depends on how much sun your skin can normally take naturally without sun block lotion. i usually only get a little tanned when i dont use sun block. but when i am in the sun all day i use spf 15 and i have the same result. but other people's skin burns much faster. it just depends.

My theory is that the more you wear sunblock lotion, the more dark you will be. If you dont wear sunblock lotion, your face will turn red...and eventually, the redness will go away.

Coppertone Sport Sunblock is one of the worst sunscreens you can buy, if you are looking for complete protection from skin cancer, burning and wrinkles, but it seems like you all believe that those three things make you sexy, so keep doing whatever your current routine is.

I got the Coppertone Sport Continuous Spray sunscreen (30SPF) sometime ago.

The commercials did a great job of alluring me to buy their product. They claimed it was non-sticky, that it doesn't run into your eyes, no-rub, no-mess, non-greasy, etcetera. However, this thing does feel greasy and it stings your eyes if it gets in. When you spray it on, it leaves something like a sticky grease film, so your skin is all shiny and sticky. So, I usually rub it to spread it more evenly. When I try to wash my hands with soap to get the residue off, it doesn't come off. So, when you hold the racquet grip, your hand sticks to the overgrip. Plus, the white overgrip gets dirty cuz of the leftover greasy (yet sticky) sunscreen.

Sadly not that one either.

Read this post: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showpost.php?p=1022385&postcount=2

Try Ocean Potion (check the smell first, one of them smells like oranges and some people find that unbearable). Neutrogena makes good sunscreens (but NOT their spray formulas, they contain menthol which irritates the skin) and some of Coppertone's sunscreens are good (but NOT the blue Sport formulas or the kids forumulas). You have to read the ingredient labels.

really sunblock doesn't block tanning, just blocks harmful rays to your skin

The only sunblock cream that blocks UV rays from hitting your cells is the one with chrystals in it. It's a new thing, only recently introduced to the market in US, I just bought some, works like a charm, very little tanning.

No, it just regular sunscreen but it goes on nice and dries without leaving you feeling greasy.

Why exactly is it a bad sunscreen? When I play tennis on a hot day, I will usually use some of it on my face..

Edit: nevermind, read your last post and the linked one...but I don't think I will remember those ingredients. I usually just use whatever is around and so far have been fine. I work inside and don't spend too much time in the sun anyway.
