Do not risk it

I agree with the other reviews that this sunscreen CANNOT be trusted. DO NOT RISK IT. Do not listen to the positive reviews in case you are unlucky and for whatever reason this provides terrible protection for you like it did for me. Show details

May as well use no sunscreen

This sunscreen simply does NOT work. It shouldn’t be allowed on the Australian market. Needs to go back through approval process. I put it on quite liberally. Let it soak in. Was at the beach 2 hours. Came home. Found I was very burnt. Person I went to the beach with used a different sunscreen and has lighter skin than me, did not get burnt at all.

Don’t buy this product. Don’t use it on your kids etc. it does absolutely nothing.
ALDI - remove this item from your shelves. Show details

Worst sunscreen I have ever used

Worst sunscreen I have ever bought. Took our grandkids to the beach. We made sure they were fully covered in the Aldi 50 + sunscreen and didn't stay at the beach long . My granddaughter & grandson got very burnt. I will never use this product again. It should be removed from the shelves. Show details

Terrible sunscreen with next to no protection

This sunscreen does not provide protection - even when you follow all instructions for use and apply every hour as recommended in the sun. My family and I used this product for a day at the beach and despite reapplying the sunscreen all day, all three of us suffered very severe sunburn. It provided next to no, if any, protection. I could not recommend it. Show details

The best sunscreen I have ever used

I found this review site while looking for answers why Aldi isnt stocking its sunscreen at the moment. I find it hard to understand about all these people getting burnt. My husband can surf for hours with this suncreen without reapplying. I also use it and found that it was the best sunscreen I have used, it's not sticky, its easy to apply and gives great protection. I've used it in Bali and Thailand and of course here in Australia.

Maybe there is something in it that some people are allergic to, so I hope thay fix the problem and bring it back.

Terrible product

Bough this for our Fiji trip, we found we got very burnt multiple times during our stay despite applying it multiple times during our poolside adventures. Photo is after poolside and 2 thorough applications.

We ended up having to buy some Bannaboat sunscreen which worked 100% better under the same circumstances. Show details

Deserves less than 1 star

The bottle says 4hrs UVA/UVB water resistant. I though great! Perfect for at the beach. And what a nice sunscreen I thought it was, applied so nicely! I honestly thought I had found my favourite sunscreen. I applied it about 30 minutes before we got to the beach. I was at the beach for around two hours, only going out from under our shady cabana to swim twice. I applied more sunscreen after swimming. Now I am left with one of the worst sunburns I've ever had. My partner is also a bright red. Please do not use this product. It does not work!!

Don’t get it in your eyes…!

We used this sunscreen for a matter of months. While I seemingly had no issues with the level of sun protection it offered (we didn’t get burned), if you get it in your eyes, especially while swimming, it burns like mad. My son reacted so badly to it at a water park, that his eyes swelled up, he was in pain, he could barely see and we had to go home. Other friends have had similar experiences. We have never reacted to a sunscreen like that before. IMO, it’s a terrible product and shouldn’t be on shelves. Show details

Not impressed

I applied this sunscreen 3 times throughout the day and still burnt everywhere that I applied it. I applied to my daughters face 3 times also as she had her rashy on and she also got burnt.

Got sunburnt

I put it on in the room, 30min before going out in the sun, went in the pool, came out and sat on the sun lounger for 10 minutes and started to get red spots. My daughter used a Nivea gold one which was 30+ and she was fine! I do not recommend this sunscreen. I wish I read the reviews before I bought it but lesson learnt. Show details

0 Stars DO NOT BUY!!

I don't know how this can even be approved for sale. Used according to directions and all the teens got burnt badly. The teens have been swimming previously with just using suncream without issues so don't come at me with slip, slop, slap. This should have provided at least some protection but they might as well have not applied it. DO NOT BUY!! Aldi could see a class action with my experience as well as others below. You need to recall this product immediately. Show details

Worst sunscreen product on the market! Do not use this product

The ALDI Ombra SPF50+ product did absolutely nothing to protect me against the sun. Used it twice and in both occasions of being in the sun for 2 hours directly after applying it I was badly burnt. I don’t recall ever being burnt in my life until now.

I later used another well known sunscreen product by the Cancer Council in the same weather conditions and it protected me fine against the sun - as it should!
Don’t trust the ALDI Ombra SPF50+ for you and your family. I know it’s a cheaper option but it just isn’t worth it. Aldi should be ashamed of themselves for stocking this product. Show details

Love this product

Love this sunscreen. Easy to apply, love the smell and protection is good. Never put it on my face though and always reapply regularly especially after swimming.
Can’t seem to find any this year. Show details

Snake oil - burns - no protection from the sun

Not effective at all. 2 hours in the sun surfing. I am sunburnt every where I put the sunscreen and not burnt where I missed. I have been surfing (Australia) for some 30 years and this is the worst sunburn I have ever had. I would have been safer with no sunscreen even if I had been in the sun for the whole day. My eyes are stinging long after use. This is not sunscreen. Show details

Is thiz brand is expired on tym or not?

List please
List please

Could you please forward on to me a list of the ingredients in Ombra Sport 50SPF sunscreen lotion. I see it doesn't have the ingredients listed on the bottle which make me a little suspicious. I thought a list of ingredients was compulsory in Australia.
