Review: Sun Bum Kids Clear Face Stick SPF 50
I’ve been trying a bunch of different sunscreen products. I’ve already finished Sun Bum Kids Clear Face Stick SPF 50. The outer layer (packaging) peeled off all of a sudden.

This sunscreen is 0.53 oz (15 g). It’s really small for the price. I thought I would give it a try anyways. I love clear sunscreen sticks. They work very well for re-applications. They’re convienent and easy to carry around and use. This sunscreen was just that. It’s easy to toss it in my bag and easy to re-apply. I can use it anywhere without hassle.
I first started using this sunscreen on my body, especially my neck and hands. I didn’t want to risk using it on my face at first. The sunscreen feels nice on the skin. It smells like bananas. I actually like the smell of the sunscreen product. It’s truly clear. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling extremely sticky. It goes on well. I haven’t had any big issues with this sunscreen. I just wish it would absorb a little faster. Otherwise, it works for me.
After testing it on my body, I decided to try it on my face. I liked that it’s a sunscreen stick. It wasn’t as messy compared to a lotion. With the Sun Bum Kids Clear Face Stick SPF 50, it felt moisturizing on the skin, but it felt a bit drying after it sets on the skin. I didn’t like the feeling of it on my face. Also, it burned my eyes. It’s a chemical sunscreen, by the way.
Here are the ingredients:
Homosalate 10%, Octocrylene 10%, Octisalate 5%, Avobenzone 3%
octyldodecanol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, butyloctyl salicylate, dibutyl ethylhexanoyl glutamide, dibutyl lauroyl glutamide, trimethylpentanediol/adipic acid/glycerin crosspolymer, tocopheryl acetate, fragrance, pongamol
I love that it’s a sunscreen stick that smells good. It works well on the body. I haven’t used it at the beach or anything. I haven’t used it when my skin is wet. I’ve only used for everyday use. I can’t comment if it works in extremely high UV cases. It worked for everyday use. As for my face, I don’t like it that much. I prefer to use it on my body. But, as a last resort, I would use it on my face. I didn’t experience breakouts while using it. Shocker! I was surprised by this. Maybe I’ll repurchase in the near future. Just not right now.
