My DD 6.5mo and has sensitive skin. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a good sunscreen that's fairly easy on the skin?
Thanks very much

I find the natural instinct one is pretty good if we're going swimming but if we're not going near water I actually use a facial moisturiser for sensitive skin with 30+ in it. Easier to apply, easier to wash off, less likely to cause rashes!

Cancer council brand ones are some of the best I've found - i use the natural one a lot.

Zinc based ones. I just bought Banana Boat Sensitive Minerals, as a different one marketed for kids (can't remember the name) was irritating her skin. So far the new one seems fine bu it generally takes a few days of use to really tell.

We found the Cancer Council sunscreens gave DDs a rash. Coles brand has been good, both ordinary and sensitive.
