Worst product ever! I can’t believe Aldi would stock something so poor. Stings eyes like hell, wish i can upload photos to show you chemical burn this cream created to me. My whole family got sunburned after 3h spent at the beach and reapplied twice! Hope this product goes of the market forever
A fine cheap sunscreen
it's a lot thicker than cancer council sunscreens so it does take more work to rub in but true to it's word it doesn't feel greasy and I can't detect and fragrance. As with all sunscreens do make sure you do a patch test to see if you have a reaction to the ingredients but if you apply it properly it works just as well as more expensive products. I wouldn't recommend this one for swimming however as it does sting a bit more than others I have tried if it gets in your eyes, so it's more suitable for just everyday wear.

Can't live without this!
Aldi are known for cheap bargains. I shop there coz I am on a lower income, so every penny counts. I have had several melanomas and really loathe sunscreen at the best of times. Many on the market are thick and gluggy and leave that horrible Frosty The Snowman appearance on your skin.
THIS doesn't! this is lovely and creamy and goes on to a lovely soft touch feel when it dries. I burn in around 2 minutes so times the 50 gives me around 1 and half hours of protection.
100 mls in a tube and it is easy to flip the lid open and then close and c...

DO NOT USE
I can’t believe this is even still available
For sale. My son and daughter burnt so bad my sons eyes is red raw and swollen, I had to go
To emergency as he started red blotchy patches all
Over his face. Both kids complained when sunscreen was on it was burning and stinging. Never ever ever again. You pay for what you get I’ve learnt my lesson. Shame in Aldi. Recall the product!!!
SHOULD BE ILLEGAL
I can’t believe this is available for sale in a country like Australia where skin cancer is a certainty!! I bought for the 50+ factor we applied and reapplied religiously and have been dangerously burnt while overseas. Also the chemical smell in this sunscreen is so potent, I’m not sure it’s safe to use on any level.
Chemicals cause terrible rash
A warning - follow the advice here and do not use this sunscreen if your skin is even remotely sensitive. A friend had a new bottle of this which I slathered on my arms, back of my hands and back of my neck and a day later I was covered in red, itchy blotches that, a week later, are still there. I checked the ingredients and yep, most of them are known to cause itchy breakouts. From what I have read here, it sounds like this product is a total dud and dangerous.
Public service announcement- dangerous
I have never written a review on this site but after having my kids burnt to a crisp after applying this suncream I feel compelled to warn others. This product is dangerous. It has absolutely no sun protection. We applied 3 times during the day. Each time I made the kids stay out of the water for at least 10 mins to let it sink in. They are both red raw.
OMBRA 50+ EVERYDAY sunscreen in the blue 500ml pump pack
I have very fair skin and have used sunscreen daily for years. I'm an expert, I have to be :-)
This Aldi product was my last purchase, we don't stick to any brand, but I was sick of the greasy sunscreens that make you look shiny.
I realize people have had problems with reactions etc. This pack, like most sunscreens does instruct you to try it on a small area first.
I didn't do that but had no problems, I use it mainly on my face, hands & arms.
I like the non-greasy feel & it soaks in fast.
I've never been sunburnt whilst using this produ...ct, however it does sting if it gets in your eyes. Just like every other sunscreen I've tried. My use consists of using it secondary to shade, I don't apply it and expect to sit in the hot sun for 8 hrs & not get burnt. I seek shade or wear a hat or cover up as well. I've used it swimming for around an hour without problems too.
Bought in 1L pump pack from Aldi to use for a picnic at the local lagoon/pool. Applied to both my daughters and myself, multiple times throughout the day and came back home looking like lobsters. My eldest daughter is in absolute agony, as she wore a bikini for the first time this summer, so her skin was quite raw. Feel so guilty, as I applied the cream to both of them, but it has obviously failed. Please do not buy this cream!!!
Blisters & rashes all over my son!
My son is 11 years old. He has never been sick or rashed once in his life, he is a small but robust, athletic boy who has a great immune system (gets it from mamma :)) He is also a child actor/model. During an outing last weekend, I slathered him with Ombra Aldi-branded sunscreen (the one that comes in the blue squeezy tube). He was complaining of itchy arms later that arvo, and by the next morning, was covered in bubbly red skin. Either the sunscreen did not protect him at all (we were out for 2.5 hours), or the ingredients in the cream contai...ned irritants. Either way, not good. He spent every night over 5 days scratching his limbs to death, and every day being too embarrassed to show his face ;( At last we found relief in Dermaveen's colloidal oatmeal ointment, and after over a week, he is now fine. I thought I was protecting my son, but I would have been better off risking him to the elements. As a child model, I am seriously considering compensation at this stage.
***** DO NOT BUY!!!!*****
Both myself and my son have gotten extremely painful sunburn with this product. Used twice, first day applied more than regularly (very hot day) still received very red, swollen burns to every part exposed to sun. Figured we weren't applying it enough or possibly sweat affecting it's performance we used again and after a second day, being applied every hour we are both extremely unwell and with almost purple swollen burns to our arms, legs, faces and necks. worst part was we could not feel the sunburn happening until it was too late! Please do not use this product on children or fair skin!
If i could give no star i would
DANGEROUS SPF50+ stands for SUN PROTECTION FORGONE !
On Australia day my partner and I applied twice let it soak and spent most of the day under the shade. Came home looking like beetroots. Dangerously burnt; we were so disappointed because we were very sun smart. The product must be removed for the shelves. DO NOT BUY!!!!! YOU WILL GET BURNT!!!!
Do not purchase this
Purchased this ombré 50 plus as our whole family is very conscious of skin care. My daughters who HAD perfect skin is totally ruined.
I have photo evidence of what this product does to you. Everywhere the sunscreen was is where their skin burnt. They may as well put cooking oil all over themselves! We followed the instructions on the bottle. We have been on a cruise and my kids couldn’t move or be outside because of what this sunscreen did on the first day of our trip. I’m so very angry about this and will be taking further steps to make sure this happens to nobody else.
Use this if you want to be burned and look like a lobster
We had two sunscreens, the Aldi ombré beach and banana boat brands. Everyone who used the ombré beach is red as a lobster, the family members who used the banana boat brand are still Lilly white. This ombré beach branded product does not work and is dangerous.
Don't use, doesn't work
My daughter used this on arms and legs but different band on her face. Her arms and legs are painfully burnt however her face is fine. My son was with her and had different brand all over and not burnt at all. The Ombré brand does not work and we will not be using it again
Does not work-got burnt!
Please dont use this product or any of their sunblock products. Got burnt really bad on my face after i used this and am peeling like mad! It almost feels like i would hv been better off not using any sunblock lotion than an Aldi one as areas i didnt use it on aren't burnt and dry!. Have also stopped my son using the kids ones after a similar reaction. I dont think it is a spf50+ product. Spend more and get a skin cancer or nivea one!
Questions & Answers
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.
Why after all the horrendous reviews stating how burnt everyone gets using this cream, has nothing been done about it???? Thank God I was only in the sun for an hour or I might've ended up in hospital. I can't imagine how parents of children would feel, seriously?
