Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Spray SPF 50 Sunscreen Review: Hey guys, as you can tell, I am on a roll with sunscreen reviews. Today I am going to talk about a Eucerin Sun Spray. I honestly don’t like touching my face again and again. But its also known that you need to reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 hours if you’re out in the sun for long.
So I decided to try a sun spray because I thought it would be super easy and convenient to spray on a sunscreen instead of actually applying it with hands. So basically my purpose was “ease of reapplication”. Of course I went for a transparent sunscreen because I am a brown skin girl and I do not like white cast at all. So I didn’t want to take any chances.

In Detail Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Spray SPF 50 Sunscreen Review and My Experience
The one I have comes in a orange hued transparent plastic bottle with a spray dispenser and a plastic see through cap. It has all the details mentioned on the packaging itself. The details on my bottle are written in Spanish I think, but I am sure you can get the same stuff in other countries may be with a slightly different packaging.
When you actually spray it, it sprays like a strong mist. I spray it on my skin and then lightly tap it with my hands. It has a very peculiar sort of typical sun screen like smell. The smell does linger around for a while. But what I really like is its literally a transparent sunscreen. Looks just like water. In addition even the consistency and texture are similar to water.
When I apply it, it just makes the skin look a little luminous. Its actually a good thing if you’re into glowy glass like skin. However, if you’re into matte skin, this might not be the perfect choice for you. Its not at all sticky or oily. It just blends in and sinks into the skin and feels like almost nothing.

It is a chemical sunscreen completely. Has all the chemical sun screen agents. No Physical sun filters at all.
SoI used it for a while and I was literally in love with this sunscreen. But one day, I applied it on my face while I was driving. After a while, my eyes started stinging real bad. Like it was so severe, I had to stop my car, and call my husband to send someone to take me home because my eyes were watering and red. At the back of my head I knew it was one of my skin care that just melted a little and made its way into my eyes. But I didn’t really think of it exactly that day.
So on a completely different day, I went out for lunch with my friends. It was a rooftop restaurant and while not directly under the sun, it was still very bright due to sun. I thought of spraying the sunscreen on. But this time I took it on my hand (I sprays 3-4 pumps on my hand) and then applied carefully on my face. STILL, after a while it reached my eyes and started burning like crazy. My eyes again were red and tears were actually flowing down my cheeks.
After these handful of incidents, I decided I am never ever going to use this sunscreen on my facial skin. It obviously not compatible with my eyes and stings and burns them. Therefore now, I use this sun screen spray only for my hands, feet and other exposed parts on my body but never ever for my facial skin.
Don’t get me wrong, this is a pretty good sunscreen by itself. Has perfect texture and perfect light weightiness specially for someone like me who wants zero white cast and wants as natural glow as possible in skin care products. However, it has something in its formulation that stings my eyes and hence I cannot use it on my face anymore. For other parts of my body, this works perfectly though.
PROs of Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Spray
- Spray on sun screen, good for using on the go.
- SPF 50 with UVA protection.
- Absolutely no white cast, its a transparent sunscreen.
- Leaves the skin slightly luminous.
- Free of Octinoxate and Oxybenzone
CONs of Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Spray
- Stings my eyes like anything.
- Expensive outside European and American countries.
- If you come across a sun screen that causes discomfort in your eyes, nose or other delicate areas of your face, use it on other exposed parts of your body.
- Chemical sun screens need to be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure.
- This one actually has an ingredient called Octylacrylamide Copolymer which is used in finishing or holding sprays. So I sometimes use it on my hair when I am directly exposed to sun.
- Avoid contact with the eyes.
- Do not use for small children.
- Avoid intensive midday sun and extensive sun exposure as even sunscreens with high SPFs do not offer a 100% protection. Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product.
- Insufficient quantity of sunscreen applied reduces the protection effect.
2.5/5 (It may be a good sun screen, but it stings my eyes.)
