This makes things worse
Worked outside on an overcast day. Was finished by 1.00 pm . Only put it on my face. And this was the only place I was burnt. And burnt badly. Where do I go to get compensated for risking cancer with this crap.
Purchased in February 2018 for $15.00.
It damaged my clothing
I’m a golfer and I could not work out why my trousers and shirt collars were discolouring. I discovered 12 months later that whenever my bare arms were touching my trousers the fabric would slowly suffer a bleach like discolouring effect. Same with my shirts collars.
$3,000 in lost clothing.
Threw everything in the bin. Will never buy that Rubbish again.
Purchased in January 2016.
Never Had A Problem
We use the Cool Zone Sport sunscreen and have never had an issue. I always make sure they are in date, keep it in the esky (never let it get hot) and apply then reapply generously. Been using it for years on adults and kids.
Purchased in February 2019 for $16.00.

DO NOT USE
I have always used Cancer Council sun cream on my family. On our recent holiday we ran out and the small supermarket only sold Banana Boat. I'm so disappointed with this brand.
Our usual practice is to apply suncream every 2-3 hours and we've never had issues. Using Banana Boat we all ended up burnt. I also noticed the arms and collars on our tops are now stained from this cream.
Absolute crap. Should be taken off the shelves
This sunscreen is hands down the WORST. Our family of three used the Banana Boat Sports sunscreen on a recent trip to the beach and we ended up with terrible sunburn. As other reviewers have said, we would have been better off going without. I wish I’d read these reviews first; I would have stuck with the Cancer Council sunscreen.
Now I feel like the worst parent ever with a sunburnt toddler.
Save your money and go without sunscreen
We used this on an overcast day a couple of years back, just for a game of touch, around 2 hours in the sun and everyone was really badly burnt. Also it stains your clothes too. Tried it again today, I put loads on because I remember how crap it was last time and I got just as burnt as if I had not worn any sunscreen at all, what a waste of money it is!

Doesn't protect you at all! Total sunburn!
We bought Banana Boat Sport 30+ and we apply a good layer of it on our skin about 20 minute sun exposure. We went swimming and snorkeling for about 45 minutes. Then re-apply another layer during lunch time and went back snorkeling for another 45 minutes. The day after we suffered from a total sun burn which lasted more than a week. I'm sure that it wouldn't have been worse if we didn't put this cream at all! Totally useless.
The sunscreen burnt my face, felt like fire.
Used this for family holiday. Now my skin is flaking off as it burnt my skin badly. I used it for my 4 children and my eldest son has had the same reaction. Terrible. I rushed out and bought cancer council sunscreen and have had no problems. Avoid!
Terrific - met all expectation
Bought the Sport 50+SPF for a recent family holiday on Gold Coast. Very active week for all of us swimming, body surfing, stand up paddle boarding, tennis and hiking. Adult daughter has very pale skin and son came up after enduring a Melbourne winter. Used the sunscreen continuously during the week. As we are originally from Noth Queensland are very skin cancer conscious so combined the sunscreen with other normal sun protection measures such as hats, finding shade etc where possible. No sunburn, and the sunscreen was probably the best I have ever used for prolonged periods in the water and exercise. Will certainly use again.
Worst sunscreen ever
Used this two weeks ago on my daughter. Applied four times through the day. We just thought we hadnt applied right because she burnt all over her body (6 year old in a bikini). We went out yesterday applied three times throughout the day. We got home hubby daughter snd myself and absolutely cooked and look like blistered lobsters. We were under a shade cloth when not swimming. Will never use this again
