Pump doesnt work
Bought this for an island holiday. Got to our destination and the product is too thick to get out of the pump. After much shaking, standing it in hot water and other measures we got a small amount out. Enough to see that it doesnt rub in well at all. Like the other reviews rightly say, it is certainly not invisible. There was always a white residue.
I tried contacting the manufacturer to ask for tips for getting the product out of the pump but they ignored me.
Save your money and buy a different brand.
Purchased in October 2019.
Good for backs of hands
This is a very thick sunscreen that takes a bit of rubbing to blend in. After that I don't find that it leaves a cast. However it would be hard to rub all over your body because it is so thick. And there is no way I could put it on my face for every day use. I would probably put it on my face if I was going to the beach. I mainly use it on the backs of my hands and lower arms each morning before going to work. Being waterproof, I hope it lasts through a few hand washes until lunch time, when I put more sunscreen on.
Perfect for white skin exposure in Australian sunshine.
Yes, I agree "not invisible," but for me when outdoors in the sun, wearing thick white Zinc cream on my face is a must.
Extremely white skinned I am prone to facial skin cancers and in the past have experimented with many 'sunscreen' products with disappointment. Then along came 'Invisible Zinc' the best protection, 5 Stars, the sunscreen I depend upon for protection from further sun exposure related skin cancer.
An added bonus, improvement of two pre-cancerous facial skin lesions which I am convinced is due to the 'Invisible Zinc' thick coating being partially absorbed into my sub-dermal layers, assisting my skin to resist cancerous changes.
Worst sunscreen ever - ineffective and overpriced
The name "Invisible" Zinc is false advertising and is an outright lie. This sunscreen is extremely thick and leaves a very heavy white cast, so it is far from invisible. The sunscreen is also very ineffective, I got sunburn on my face despite applying the cream and not going out into the sun too much. You would definitely be better off buying a cheap Woolworths or Coles generic brand than this overpriced scam cream.
Not invisible and doesn't adequately protect from the sun
Very disappointing product: when applied the product leaves a distinctly white appearance and could not be described as invisible, and more importanly it provides very little protection from the sun. Since using Invisible Zinc, for the first time in years I'm getting burnt.
Completely failed to protect against the sun while out in the water.
I used the Invisible Zinc SPF50+ 4Hr water resistant 100ml product for the first time. It was more expensive than most other sports sunscreens and I was excited to try it for its protective abilities. I and my friend applied it to our faces/head 30 minutes before we headed out for a surf (we spent 2 hours in the sea). We didn't apply it anywhere else as we had full wetsuits on to block the sun. The Invisible Zinc left a white look wherever it was applied (i.e. it was not invisible) and we were semi-okay with this because we thought it would pro...tect more. Unfortunately it completely failed to protect us against the sun and we were both burnt on our faces/head. It was the first time we have ever noticed a sunscreen product failing so markedly. We would have been horrified if we had used this on our children and they had been burnt. This was batch (B)1051108 exp Jun 19.
Invisible what a joke!
I work in the sun each day and needed a zinc to cover my face even though I wear a cancer council hat I needed a sunscreen that could last for a few hours until my next break. I have seen the add for this and thought I would try it, well if I was very very pale maybe it would be invisible but I'm not I have olive skin so this zinc looks like a white paste on my face. Also where I have applied it my skin is worst than the areas I didn't apply it to. I followed the directions and now I have very bad pigmentation going on my face. NOT HAPPY
My children got very sunburnt with this. I am so disgusted - I would never recommend this product, in fact, avoid it at all costs. I puchased this product as my children spend so much time in the water and i wanted them to have the best protection. They also wear wetsuits in the water and the cream was reapplied when they took their wetsuits off and they still got burnt.
