Coppertone Sun Screens

Disclosure: I received free samples & coupons to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. Bzz Agent Post.


May showers bring June flowers. Oh wait, that's not really how the saying goes, though you might think so right now, if you lived in the state of Michigan. ;)  Never mind though, I know warm, sunny days are a'coming, and when they get here, we'll be ready with our new Coppertone Sun Screens.

The Coppertone CLEARLYSheer line was designed with your skin in mind. First and foremost, whether you're using the spray or the lotion, it absorbs quickly, and both have a clean, light feel. Moisturizers in the CLEARLYSheer line keep your skin smooth, and soft; neither type will clog pores; and the matte finish makes it perfect for wearing under make-up (no excuses!).

ClearlySheer for Sunny Days absorbs quickly &
has a light and very pleasant citrus scent.
The CLEARLYSheer sunscreen lotion has a pleasant citrus scent that smells nothing like what I'm used to in sun protection. That makes it nice for everyday use. It's really just a simple, clean, citrus-y fragrance that is not at all intrusive. In fact, it smells pleasant. It has an SPF of 30.


A spray that isn't greasy?  Yep!
The Coppertone Continuous Spray absorbed super fast!
The Coppertone Sunscreen Continuous Spray has an SPF of 50 and is intended to protect you from the most damaging of UVA/UVB rays. It provides quick and even coverage, and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. It wasn't greasy when I sprayed it on (not at all) and it has that typical (tropical) beachy scent I love in my beach day sunscreens (subtle, not overwhelming).

Both types (the lotion and the spray) are awesome in their own ways and would be great for different uses. We'll be taking the spray along to the beach, for the ultimate protection for the kiddos, and we'll be using the lotion around the yard, when gardening, mowing, etc., and for other daily type things that leave us lucky enough to be outside.

Coppertone has been a trusted name for many years, and they've hit a home run yet again with these great summer products. You  know it's best to protect your skin when you're out in the elements, so if you're going to do it, might as well do it right with Coppertone.

Yes, this is very much required to manage this summer...

Robin said...

I try to minimize my exposure... but there are times when you gotta pull out the sunscreen.

Pat Hatt said...

I have never had good luck with Coppertone:( I have super sensitive skin- so I have to stick with Aveeno sunscreens.

Theresa Mahoney said...

My mom always bought Coppertone. I remember laughing and laughing at the logo. Now we tend to buy whatever is on sale. We go through a ton of sunscreen in the summer! My oldest burns so easily, and they say even 1 bad sunburn can lead to cancer!

alissa apel said...

I need to get some new. Ours is a few years old. I think it starts loosing it's durability when it ages.

Masshole Mommy said...

Coppertone is the only brand I trust for my kids. It's always worked well and kept their skin protected!

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

I love the sound of the spray, that sounds so easy to use and often quick and easy is the way to go. x

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

I've very excited about their sheer line. I don't like putting heavy sunscreen on me or my kiddos!

Sandee said...

I could have used some of this yesterday. It was 99 degrees here. HOT!

Have a fabulous day Rosey. ☺

Tracey said...

The sheer line sounds right up my alley. I hate heavy sunscreens.

Lindsey Paris said...

I'm starting to get REALLY picky about our sunscreens. We have too many redheads in the house!

becca said...

We are a Coppertone family. I try to stock up when it goes on sale.

Autumn said...

I tried some Coppertone on a recent trip and really liked it! The spray went on my skin super easy, and dried quickly.

Denise Gabbard said...

I HOPE the sun is coming sometime soon. We are getting pounded with rain again today...and I have been shop vaccing water out of the basement for three days already. (I'm between Cleveland and Akron) Coppertone is my all-time favorite...just the smell of it makes me think of summer.

Annemarie Leblanc said...

Sunscreen is very important, especially for those who are pale; I hate getting a sunburn during the summer, it ruins everything!

jaime said...

I need to replenish my sunscreen supply. I'm so fair skinned, and my son is taking after me. (Poor boy.)

Healy Harpster said...

We liked Coppertone products! I like that it absorbs quickly and has a pleasant smell.

debdenny said...

I really like Coppertone. Great stuff.

Kristi Maloney said...

These sound great! I like trying new sunscreens and will look for these newbies from Coppertone.

Binky said...

Spring is about a month late this year, but we'll need the sunscreen soon.

Liz Mays said...

I think I'd take the spray with me to the beach too. Good idea! I've never tried a spray sunscreen before, but I like the idea.

Carla said...

We use a lot of sunscreen at our house. My son and I are both very fair skinned. We've used a bunch of different ones over the years, but it doesn't seem like Coppertone works as well on me as others do. I'm one of those people that will fry, even with very frequent applications of sunscreen, though.

Pam said...

We always use Coppertone while we are on vacation and spending time on the beach! It's the only one that keeps us from getting burnt.

renee from what mommies need said...

Living in New Orleans means lots of sun exposure, so I love that Coppertone dries quickly and is SPF 50. Also, I love the spray kinds, because they are so much easier.

Ai Sakura said...

Love a good sunscreen that absorbs into the skin cleanly and doesn't leave an oily or sticky feeling!

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

Bethany Jones said...

We use Coppertone every summer. No complaints from this mom!

Vimala Agustino said...

Hubby always need sunscreen with at least 50 SPF. We also use Coppertone and it works great.

Chelsea Olivia said...

I hate heavy, slimy sunscreens that seem to just sit on top of your skin all day long. These sun screens sound perfect to me!

Anonymous said...

We just bout the 50SPF today. Two days outside in nice weather and I am sunburned. I do not normally burn - oops. My youngest burns easily so 50 is a must for him.

valmg said...

Sunscreen is so important to use. It should be worn all year round, even in the winter if you're outside a lot. - Jenn @ The Rebel Chick

Pam said...

I just recently saw some of these newer products in a commercial on TV. Love the packaging and would like to try these.

DWei said...

Or if I never go outside, I'll be safe.

Keikilani Jackson said...

I am so ready for this rain to stop so we can all go outside! We are a very fair family and need that sunblock!

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

We go through so much sunscreen in the summer, it's crazy. That is, if we ever have summer this year. So sick of rain!

Anonymous said...

I try to always put sunblock on me and my kids when we go outside. I always use Coppertone.

Amanda & Jenni said...

Sunblock is SO important! We like Coppertone!

Mrs. Sergeant said...

We have never used coppertone. We'll have to give it a try this summer.

StacieinAtlanta said...

Sun screen is a requirement in our family. The kids don't leave the house without getting doused in the stuff lol.

Christina Shirley said...

Sunscreen is a must in our house. With the kids, I love anything that's easy and works! I'll be checking out the new Coppertone spray.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Sunscreen is sure a must

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

We like Coppertone sunscreen. It's a great product!

MELISASource said...

Coppertone's products are awesome! I use them all of the time with my family.

Z @ Kicking Kilos said...

I use a sunscreen spray by Loreal. Its not greasy!

Henrietta said...

It's been nothing but rain, rain and more rain here in NW PA, too! Are you sending it all down here from Michigan? LOL! We always have several Coppertone products in the house!

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

We're about the same when it comes to rain here in IL, too! I remember waking up last night to more rain on and off. I guess that's a good thing for the plants though, right? I definitely need to invest in some good sunscreen for myself this Summer :)

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

I hate to admit that I don't wear sunscreen like I should. I really need to start on that. But I really prefer something natural

Christie C said...

I would use this up in a week! I love the new sheer bottles!

Kecia said...

I have to stock up on sunscreen since summer is here. I am very fair skin and I am so paranoid when it comes to getting sunburned!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I burn if I am out in the sun for even 10 minutes. My Hubs is Italian so he never burns. He makes sure he stocks me up on sunscreen

Megan Chamberlin said...

I'll just be happy when I have a reason to pull out the sunscreen again! So far, Chicago is not looking like we get to have any sun this year!

Kathy said...

I love a spray sunscreen. I also love it when sunscreen absorbs quickly. I will have to check these out!

Marie Moody said...

Yes, I always use the sunscreen since so much of this skin Cancer has been advertised, and I also bring some with when the grandkids are around. Great Post thanks for sharing. :)

Toni Patton said...

We LOVE Coppertone. It's a staple in our beach bag.

Christy Maurer said...

I wish I'd been in on this one! We are leaving for FL soon and could have used it! Sunscreen is an essential! I HAVE to make my son wear it...he never burns so he doesn't see a need. Molly wears it because she knows she will burn! Coppertone is a great brand!

Ashley Gill said...

I was recently educated by my dr about sunscreen. I wonder if this is physical or chemical... I love BzzAgent!

Ann B said...

I try to use sunscreen as I have fair skin. I try to use SPF 30 or higher. Whenever I think of sunscreen I think of Coppertone.

Amy @ Marvelous Mommy said...

I never used sunscreen when I was younger but I do now that I have kids. I used spf 85 in Florida and was surprised at how well it protected me at the beach!

Fabulous Perks said...

I'm not big on using sunscreens. Which I should! I've never heard of this brand. This is a great review.

myshelomitashop said...

I work and stay by the beach these days and it super duper hot right here...sunscreens definitely big YES to me. I just got one last week, but once it's finished will def look for this :)

Pauline Cabrera said...

There’s no doubt that the sun is getting fiercer and fiercer each year. I’m starting to believe that global warming is really true! Thankfully, we have Coppertone sun screens to protect us from the sun's intense and harsh ray.

Krystal Butherus said...

I really like spray on sunscreen. It is so much easier!

Joanna Sormunen said...

Coppertone is a really good brand. Myself, I prefer sunscreen on a stick. It's so easy to use!

Candy said...

I got them too! I am loving the samples sizes! My friends are too!!

Jaredamy said...

I cant use spray sunscreen on my kiddos because they are scared of it. I love it for myself though!

Justin Knight said...

Summer has arrived early here... we went to the beach today. I could really have used from of this Coppertone as I can already feel I got a bit too much sun!

Marni Mutrux said...

I think I have this and it's pretty great. Living in Miami, I must have 10 different sunscreens!

Dina said...

thanks for the reminder! I need to get more sunscreen at the store.

~ Noelle said...

We have always used Coppertone (among others) here for years and years.
