Made with organic ingredients
Gentle on eczema-prone skin
Oily feel on skin
What kind of sunscreen is NOT waterproof?
- Advertises as reef friendly but in tiny print on the back says "apply a waterproof sunscreen whilst swimming"
- sticky, greasy, uncomfortable to wear.
I applied this suncreen to go to the beach. I'm currently severely burned. My question to wotnot is what if it rains? terrible product. Save your $25
Purchased for $25.00.
Not sunscreen. Confusing marketing.
Lured by the description on the FRONT of the tube and bought it for my sensitive skin. Found it to be difficult to apply as it is OILY, STICKY AND GREASY and only put it on my arms. Then I fully read the BACK of the tube. Contains SESAME OIL. NOT keen to apply it to my face and did not want it getting near my clothes or hair. Reef friendly however this is not waterproof. More like a cracked heel moisturiser and not sunscreen.

Good for my Eczema
I get moderate to severe eczema and have found this sunscreen really works for me. (Have been using for 2 years now). I used to use the Cetaphil one before this, but I liked the feel of this one better...must be from years of being slathered in ointment.
Doesn't burn (obviously don't put it on if you're super raw), I don't get burnt and it really helps keep the moisture in. Also I found because it's Zinc based, it helped my eczema wounds heal pretty fast. It's great!
Only con was that it does get a little difficult to get out of the tube once...it is cold, really got to squeeze. Vice versa when it gets too hot it melts (i recommend shaking and squeezing it arounz the tube a bit...although i did that once and it exploded out the bottom) It would be great if they improved the usability of the packaging. :) Lastly if you do have eczema, hopefully like me you've come to the conclusion that we all have different triggers, I know a girl who has a bad reaction to zinc...so make sure to read the ingredients before using it! This works awesome for me, but i don't want someone who may read this and think 'awesome to use this and then...have to be in bandages for a month!

Excellent for eczema
I have moderate-severe eczema. It is pretty thick and a little greasy which really helps to retain the moisture in my skin. It smells good as well. Strongly recommend for anyone with eczema.

Beware contains sesame oil !
Contains sesame oil and not clearly labelled with an allergen alert.
If you rub this into a baby skin they can develop an allergy to sesame or if they are allergic they may have a life threatening reaction ! Make sure your child is not allergic to sesame first.

Great sunscreen for people with sensitive skin!
We purchased this sunscreen to use on my toddler at daycare as the chemical one they were using there was not doing his eczema any favours! Since using the Wotnot sunscreen, his eczema has almost cleared up entirely and really calmed the redness on his face. I noticed results after about 2 weeks of everyday use. I have started using it on my older children too as sometimes their skin can feel irritated by chemical sunscreens. I would definitely recommend!
Purchased in November 2018 for $28.99.
It is thick, but it is very protective. It is organic and I can tell it nourishes my skin even when wiping it off. Usually I have allergic reactions to sunscreen but this one was great!

This sunscreen saved me from the sun. Im a ginger so I need sunscreen otherwise I burn in less than 20 mins. I typically used SPF 50 but the 30 still worked well and was much cheaper! Check it out: https://wotnot.com.au/collections/suncare/products/30-spf-sunscreen
I used this over the weekend and didn’t get burnt. Was better than another brand I used last weekend. Highly recommended
Gone from great to unusable.
First bought this brand at the beginning of spring this year, was amazing couldn't fault it, it was economic and lasted for months on my small family of 4 and would last 4 to 5 hours through midday exposure with 1 application. After purchasing a batch before holidays in December, just got back from holidays and with less sun exposure, burnt to a crisp. After really trusting this brand, we are bitterly disappointed. Seems they have changed the formula.
very dissapointed with the product
I used this product for the first time and applied sunscreen 20 mins before sun exposure between 11 and 1pm and I got badly burnt . Im sorry I wouldnt recommend this product as i thought a chemicall free sunscreen would be better for my health but it didnt do the job at all.
This product should not be sold as a sunscreen
I'm frankly quite upset that this product is allowed to be sold as a sunscreen and I feel very deceived. I purchased this sunscreen because it seemed like a more environmentally conscious choice, that being said, I made allowances for the uncomfortable gummy/oily texture because it is an all natural product. But the product just didn't work at all, I applied it 3 times over a 4 hour period and ended up with a terrible sunburn. I feel it's really irresponsible of the company to sell this product and people that use this vs a sunscreen that actually works are exposing themselves to a major health risk. If you're lucky enough to read this review before purchasing this DON"T BUY IT.
I thought paying nearly 4 times the amount of money for a product would mean you get something good if not great.
well the suncream i bought was probably soo old it had gone gluggy and thick, the bottem on the tube split.
Very greasy and a lot of ghosting
Was quite happy to find a sunscreen that had natural ingredients with no junk added that was cheaper than the highly overpriced Invisible Zinc - however, on using it was quite disappointed as it is incredibly greasy, leaves white 'ghosting' marks on the skin, and worst of all, separates in the tube (don't know if they used any kind of emulsifier..?). Really disappointing, because the ingredient list is top notch but it just feels terrible on the skin.
This is the best NATURAL sunscreen I have tried for my babies
First I want to clear something up. For everyone that said that their babies/children got sunburnt using this then this is your fault. This is a product to prevent sunburn not STOP it completely. All sunscreens that hit the shelf go through stringent testing and have to meet Australian standards to be classified as sunscreen. If you got burnt using this product then you are obviously using it incorrectly. As it is a sunburn preventative, there are also other factors that you need to implement including hat, shade etc which can reduce your chanc...e of being burnt. This product is not sold to you to STOP sunburn. Please do your research on this. I also want to emphasise that you are using a 100% NATURAL product which is so so different to a chemical laden sunscreen. In fact you shouldn't even be comparing the two because they are technically two different things. Plus Wotnot is SPF 30 whilst most chemical sunscreens are SPF 50. This is the entire list of ingredients for Wotnot...actually the entire list not just the active CHEMICALS or the preservative CHEMICALS. Wotnot (12 natural ingredients) (https://wotnot.com.au/collections/family/products/30-spf-sunscreen): Beeswax-white, candelilla wax, aloe barbadensis extract, d-alpha tocopheryl acetate (gmo-free vitamin e), grapeseed oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, shea butter, silica, water-purified, naticide. Active ingredient: zinc oxide (250mg/g) Note the above list is missing words you and I cannot pronounce which are in most chemical sunscreens including: 4-Methylbenzylidene Camphor 4%, Ethylhexyl Triazone 3%, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane 4%, Octocrylene 4%, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Hydroxybenzoates.

Here’s what reviewers thought:
Reviews had mixed opinions about this sunscreen. Some stated that it was gentle on their sensitive skin, particularly for adults who had eczema-prone skin. Those who gave positive reviews reported that it prevented sunburn, and also felt nourishing to skin.
On the downside, this sunscreen is thick in consistency, as well as oily. This was partly due to the inclusion of sesame oil in the ingredients, which some reviewers were unhappy about.
Other dissatisfied reviewers reported that they (or their babies) became burned even after using the sunscreen, and were also not pleased that this sunscreen isn’t waterproof.
