They shouldn't be allowed to sell this product
Same story, was at the beach for 4 hours, reapplied after 3 with this 'SPF50', very sore and burned. This is the second time this has happened, first time I blamed myself. I'm going to look up reviews in the future.
I put a thick layer of this sunscreen on 30mins before going to the beach. We were there for 2 hours and I reapplied it another 2 times while we were there. IT DID NOTHING! It’s meant to be 4hrs water resistant!!!! It ruined my holiday and I need to take the next week off work to recover because I am so severely sunburnt. DO NOT USE!!

How is this even in the shelves?????
I would give this minus stars if I could..
Brought on 25/01/2020
So we ran out of our normal sunscreen that we use and the shops were we was(away on a beach day) didn't have any if it so we grabbed this, we don't like anything but what we normally use which is amazing but needed something and this is what they had, half price it was $13 so not cheap either, any way being that we have 5 kids sunscreen is an added protection to what we use so the only parts of there body that needed this was tops of hands and feet and face which we apply zinc o...ver top of anyway but still, and on there ears, this stuff was apploed every 1.5 hrs just to be safe the pictures show how badly my son burnt from this crap product, how this is even on the shelves I don't know, and someone needs to do something about this it's is seriously dangerous. The pictures are not even 6 hrs old.
2 kids and I burnt despite multiple applications
Spent 5 hours outside and reapplied 3 times to both myself and both my kids. We are all so burnt and sore now. We left early and went home because I could see my legs and their backs were started to reddent. Such a crap product and a waste of money. Only bought this brand as it was on sale and learnt my lesson to never ever buy Nivea again. How does this past safety testing?

Absolutely DISGUSTING!!!! Does not work!!
I applied this sunscreen multiple times throughout the day of the 01/01/2020 and I still got absolutely burnt to a crisp... this is now the aftermath of this terrible sunscreen that is meant to be 50+ protection. I am embarrassed to go outside and be seen in public and I am in so much pain still and it's been 4 days after getting burnt. How on earth is this even on the shelves to be sold as sunscreen??? Please DO NOT buy this product especially if you are thinking of applying it on your children.

Still got burnt
I used the trigger spray version of this. I applied it an hour before going into the sun & I still got burnt.. I was even in the sun around 2-3pm so the sun shouldn’t have been as harsh but thank god because I feel like I would have got burnt to a crisp otherwise.. so much for 50+ more like 5+
Not a suncreen! Don't buy or use!
Last summer I used this product and got burnt really badly. A few months on I forgot about my bad experience with this product and used it again for a day at the beach 3 days ago. I got burnt so badly again, I've been in agony and have spent $50 on aloe vera products & Disprin to help relieve my pain. (I reapplied the product with a friend's help to do my back 4times, but still got burnt!) I have a complete mistrust in the NIVEA brand now as a whole and will not purcase any of their products EVER again!

Terrible product- poor protection
Both my daughter and I burnt badly today using this sunscreen. It was 30 degrees outside. We applied the sunscreen 40 minutes before we went outside. Terrible product. I wouldn’t recommend it
Fantastic non greasy protection
Great nivea product to use to protect from the harsh Australian sun.
Loved the coverage. Was not easy, my skin just lapped it up. I know it did work as I did not end up a lobster.bwould definitely use again
Purchased for $8.00.
This Product is Deadly! Warning!
We used this product yesterday no my wife has second degree burns!
It did NOT protect at all!
We spent more than 2/3 the time in the shade too!
We reapplied cream twice in three hours even though it said’ 4 hour protection”
Could not sleep due ti the constant agony!
This is disgusting!
Where did we go to get this matter looked into?
I had Melanoma removed a few years back so I’m angry as hell!
Did not do its job
I have been badly burned using this brand of sunscreen, despite reapplication every couple of hours or so, when others who used different brands were fine. I definitely would not recommend this sunscreen to anyone, especially those who are sweating or exercising.
Purchased in November 2018 for $12.00.
The worst sunscreen I have ever used.
Absolutely terrible sunscreen. I never usually burn from sun exposure due to being sun smart but even after several applications of Nivea sunscreen I have burnt badly while friends who used a different brand were fine. Definitely avoid this brand.
More like cooking oil than sun protection
Followed instructions, didn’t enter any water was out for a little over an hour just for a walk, and I am burnt red raw, so sore, don’t know how it’s lasted on shelves so long!!!
Should be removed from shelves!!
This “sunscreen” is dangerous and should be removed from shelves. I am always very liberal when applying sunscreen, always reapplying every 1-2 hours even if the bottle says it lasts longer. I used Nivea’s apparent 50+ sunscreen and ended up with the worst sunburn I’ve ever had!!!
