Skin protection that is worth the money

Blue Lizard

Blue Lizard sunscreen products are the "creme de la creme" of sunscreens. This is one of the best sunscreen brands that you will find and they offer a number of products to protect everyone in your family, including children and those with sensitive skin.

While it is a great sunscreen, Blue Lizard is definitely not one of the cheapest available. However, the quality and extra protection it offers make it worth the money!

About Blue Lizard Sunscreen

Blue Lizard is produced in Australia and is quickly being accepted as one of the best sunscreens available in the world.

Blue Lizard has several products to choose from:

  • Regular - Designed for average sunscreen use. Water-resistant (up to 240 minutes by Australian standards, 80 minutes by FDA standards). Contains 6% Zinc Oxide.
  • Sport - Similar to the Regular sunscreen, simply designed for use by more active people. Good for daily use and has the same water-resistance and Zinc Oxide content of Regular.
  • Face - Gel formula that can be used as a daily moisturizer with antioxidants (Vitamin E, caffeine, green tea). Can be worn under make-up. Contains 8% Zinc Oxide. Oil, paraben, and fragrance-free.
  • Sensitive - Designed for sensitive skin. Only contains natural minerals: Zinc Oxide (10%) and Titanium Dioxide (5%). Chemical, paraben, and fragrance-free.
  • Baby - Designed for babies and young children. Only contains Zinc Oxide (10%) and Titanium Dioxide (5%). Chemical, paraben, and fragrance-free.

    All of Blue Lizard's sunscreens are rated at an SPF30+. This makes it easy to navigate the selection because there are no confusions when it comes to SPF.

    All of the sunscreens are broad spectrum, meaning they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

    The Review of Blue Lizard Sunscreens

    There are many things to love about Blue Lizard.

    Although it is a little pricier than most sunscreens, Blue Lizard sunscreen products really do measure up.


    • No SPF confusions -- all products are SPF 30. No more, no less.
    • Bottle changes color in UV light.
    • Does not feel sticky or greasy
    • Extremely water resistant


    • More expensive than most sunscreens
    • Can be hard to find

    One of the best aspects of the Blue Lizard sunscreen line is that the bottles turn color when exposed to UV light. It acts as a reminder that you need to apply more sunscreen because the deeper the color, the more UV rays are falling onto your skin. It is fun and actually made my children want to learn more about sun safety!

    Blue Lizard products also measure up to Australian sunscreen standards, which are more strict than the FDA standards in the United States. The products are chemical-free and contain at least 6% zinc oxide (an ingredient that reflects rather than absorbs UVA and UVB rays), compared to only the 1 to 2% found in competitor brands.

    Some Blue Lizard products can stay on for as long as 240 minutes in the water (by Australian standards, FDA testing rates it at 80 minutes), making it one of the most water-resistant (not waterproof) products on the market. Keep in mind, though, that you should always reapply sunscreen after going in the water.
