Since discovering Kinesis by chance at a company golf outing in San Diego more than ten years ago, I have been a continuous user. My dermatologist had recommendations about what sunscreens are best and Kinesys was not listed. When I showed her the website and ingredients, she became interested as well and said it should be on the list! I never travel without it.
I absolutely love this sunscreen for my runs, it sprays on easily and coats very well. It is not oily which I love. It keeps me From getting a sunburn and it doesn’t irritate my eyes when I put it on my face. My son with sensitive skin has been using it for his PE runs too. I love the unscented variety!
As a dermatologist I am picky about my sunscreen choices. Whether in Ghana, Africa or our lakehouse in Wisconsin KineSYS is my go-to sunscreen for our whole family.
So far I like the sunscreen but I have only used it for three days.
The product came with us on trip to Vegas and held up and was much easier to carry around than a tube or bottle.
I took my new KINeSYS sunscreen for a test run on Global Running Day, which was super hot here in California. I was a sweaty, drippy mess by the end of my run, but my KINeSYS sunscreen was not! The sunscreen did not drip into my eyes, nor sting them. That was a huge win for me, and instantly won me over! I like that it's clear, unscented, easy to apply and I can use it on my face. Now it has a special place by my front door, so I don't forget to apply it every time I go for a run. Thank you!
I began to use this sunscreen right when I got it! I'm going to buy more now. I would love some 30 to wear at the beach when I'm not running. I love that it rubs on smoothly and doesn't leave any residue. So unlike any other spray that I have.
Used this for the first time last weekend on my long run! Very impressed. Will add to my pre-run ritual.
Best sunscreen - hands down! Fragrance free, clean application and easy to use. The best sunscreen is the one that you'll happily use....and this is THE one!
Hands down the best sunscreen you can get. It’s one of the most essential products I buy and this time I tried the zinc cream which we really like.
We tried so many other brands before finally finding KINeSYS. Found the brand a few years back due to our son's allergies and we will not be buying any other brands anymore.
Our family of 5 have been using Kinesys for over 5 years now and won't use anything else. Living at the beach in Australia means sunscreen is a vital part of our daily lives. Our kids are now young adults and will raid the cupboards when home looking for it.
It's so easy to apply, it stays on, it's lightweight, non greasy, we love that it's fragrance free...any other sunscreen pales in comparison. The little bottle are awesome for travelling or taking on a hike or bike ride. We love using it which is saying something when we think of all the years spent putting thick and ineffective sunscreen on kids faces and bodies before we discovered Kinesys!!!!!
The best sunscreen for activities, hands down. I love the spray application and the product is easy to apply and rub in to skin. The best part is that this sunscreen does not sweat off and run into your eyes. I am a fan of this sunscreen for my active life!
Wish I could buy this sunscreen locally but I have to get it online
Fast shipping & best sunscreen available !
I�ve been using this sunscreen for many years. I saw it the first time at a pro beach volleyball tournament many years ago, and have been using it ever since. I love it! It�s not tacky and sticky like most sunscreens. I�m very active, and I use it a few times every day. Easy to spray on and doesn�t leave my hands feeling slimy. I can apply it and keep going!
This is the best sunscreen for those with sensitive skin! I've suffered with eczema all of my life and this is the only sunscreen that I've been able to use without my skin feeling irritated. I am so grateful to the owners of Kinesys for developing this product. I use it everyday and all year round whether I'm swimming, cycling, running or just racing around with my toddlers. It has seriously changed my life. No sunburn and no debilitating burning irritation on my skin. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
I have a allergy to Alcohol.
I?m using this product for 2 years,and I love it!!
Love it! But is very hard to find
This is my go-to sunscreen. My husband and I have worn it hiking in Hellhole Canyon in California, in the Grand Canyon and in Death Valley. It always performs!
I love this unscented SPF 50 and the confidence it gives me. I have very fair skin and burn very easily. I have spent most of my life hiding from the sun. I have used this product for several years, and have enjoyed spending more time outdoors safely, and took KINeSYS even on a cruise through the Panama Canal!! I use KINeSYS daily under my makeup, and it provides a great base. I am a skin cancer survivor, so staying sun safe is a daily priority. I absolutely LOVE this product. So easy to use, and feels great on my skin. Not sticky or stinky, and best of all, with common sense? no sunburns
The best sunscreen bar none: effective, non greasy, quick to absorb.
This is our favourite sunscreen ever!
I have been a huge KineSys fan since the late 90's, when I found myself at a hot summer music festival at Thunderbird Stadium *without sunscreen*! (This was much more acceptable in the irresponsible 90's than it is today). I came across a small KineSys kiosk in the merch area and the rest, as they say, is history.
As I've aged, I've moved to the beautiful (read: HOT n' sunny) Okanagan and finally learned to make protecting my skin a priority. I very recently purchased the new SPF 50 from Kinesys and I LOVE IT. It's my go-to, every morning, for my face. It's the only product I've ever used on my oh-so-sensitive skin that resulted in nothing but sun protection. Thank you KineSys, I'm so glad I found you!
Avid golfer outside all day. Put on in the morning & I'm good all day.
Use in the AZ desert in the Fall-Winter months no burns. Have used the product for over 10 years now. Now friends & grand kids are using, not sticky and stays on even with sweat.
Great Product guys.
Not oily or sticky and very effective for sun protection.
So easy to use and so "Wow" in protection factor!
I really like this because it doesn't leave stains on my clothes.
Best sunscreen I have found. Expensive and worth it. my granddaughter even let's me apply it . Shipping could be cheaper.
Not greasy at all. Easy to apply and seems to work well so far!!
This is my Go-to sunscreen. It's non-greasy, alcohol-free and doesn't irritate my skin. Most importantly, being a natural and environment-friendly product user I am glad I found Kinesys. It's everything other sunscreens are not.
The KINeSYS SPF 50 spray is my go-to sunscreen for all of my outdoor activities. I like the way that it dries without leaving a greasy feel to my skin. And it does not sweat off or run into my eyes, even during a sweaty summer time run. This is the absolute best active sunscreen that I have found.
My dermatologist recommend this for me years ago. It's the only sunscreen I will use and the only one I allow to be worn in my pool.
My dermatologist suggested I try this product. You can order online, but you won't find on the shelf. One bottle lasts. Dry's in minutes, lasts for hours out of water.
Been using for 15 years and love it.
The sunscreen provides great coverage and is non-oily. I use it instead of aftershave to help with razor burn.
I've tried tons of different sunscreens and this is BY FAR the best sunscreen I've ever used. I didn't get burned at all and after being in the sun for several days on a camping trip, I didn't have any new sun spots. Light and fragrance-free! Highly recommend!
Actually water resistant, non-stinging to the eyes. Works. No poisons. Non-greasy. Expensive, but worth it. I won't use anything else.
This feels just like a dry oil spray. Applies a thin layer of oil on your skin that feels light and smooth. I really like how this feels on my skin.
I am not sure that it fits actually offer that much SPF though. I put it on one arm abs not on the other, and didn't notice any difference between the two after being in the sun for an hour.
Spray bottle is a great size for taking along to the beach or on a hike.
I bought this to put on my arms and hands when driving in the car. I have had issues on both hands from sun and the dermatologist said the sun coming in the car window causes problems. This has no scent and is not very oily. My granddaughter likes it on her face also.
This is a very small bottle, but it is really handy to tuck in a purse or the car. I love the sunscreen. I love the ingredients, and in particular what is missing from the ingredients! The smell is nice and minimal, and it goes on easily and doesn't irritate our skin. At the end of the day I wish this came in a slightly larger bottle, but for facial sunscreen, it is a good deal. I do recommend spray on hands and then applying, but I would say that for any product. We didn't burn at all with this, in fact we had no noticeable change in skin tone at all after a day out and a few applications, so that's phenomenal news in my book! IT does what sunscreen should do and protects us from the sun!
I keep this in my purse for those times when I find myself outside unexpectedly without sun protection (I keep a hat in my truck for this same reason). This does go on a bit greasy, but it is super easy to rub in & it works. No toxic fragrances, no irritation. It is expensive for a mere 1 oz. but for portability & not getting sun burn when caught out, it's worth the price. Plus, it lasts me a long time seeing how it's for "emergencies."
Overall, I am more than pleased.
i like this, i use it for my face believe it or not, because it is fragrance free. you can say i am a sunscreen addict. i layer 3-4 sunscreens on my face everyday even when i don't go out of the house because of my melasma. the more the better. i use this as the base because it is kind of moisturizing, it feels a little slippery at first but then it goes away.
i especially like that it is fragrance free. no complaints at all. pleased with the product.
I first heard about this brand because it was listed in Allergic Living's 2020 Top Allergy-Friendly Sunscreens List. Since my son has severe allergies it has been very hard to find a sunscreen that is free of top allergens INCLUDING coconut. We had been using Badger Baby on all of us for the last 7 years (because if he hugs or rubs up against us while we are wearing sunscreen with coconut he breaks out) and while it works and has great ingredients, it's also a thick white paste. So when I saw this and saw that it was free from top 8 allergens, including soy, no sesame, gluten-free, AND coconut free AND cruelty free/vegan AND it was a spray!?!? Well it sounded too good to be true.
It's not. It works. It's so much easier to put on than the Badger Baby sunscreen. We can put it on my allergic kid and no rash, we can put it on my 3 year old and no screaming or wrestling. They can run around outside in the heat and play in the water and so far no complaints about anything running into their eyes and no burns. We are generally sun-cautious and wear a lot of sun protective clothing and hats, but this works great for the areas not easily covered like neck, feet, hands etc.
Avid hiker/backpacker always in search of the 'perfect' sunscreen for those activitites. This one is not perfect but it is very good.
Highly portable at only 1 oz. Also TSA friendly for air travel.
Easy to dispense - one nice press on the pump dispenses a good amount (enoough for a face or arm). Goes on easily. A little runny but not terrible. Not greasy.
Pretty good sun protection but I did notice my arms getting red after several hours & needing to reapply, so would desire more longevity in my sunscreen.
No notiecable scent, which is great for hiking around insects and wildlife which may be attracted to foreign scents.
A tad bit expensive given it does not last a whole afternoon for me, but high quality and will keep it on my list of products to consider for future hikes.
I love that this is a spray that actually works. No aerosol fumes and it goes on easily. I didn't feel buildup as with other lotions.
Love this stuff. Feels like baby oil and doesn't smell like chemicals.
Exactly what I was looking for. Cute size and so easy to just spray and go. It's quite oily but I don't mind because of my dry skin
It's great to see this labeled as gluten free and not have to read all the ingredients. This sunscreen is everything is mentions in the description and video. It felt like someone was blowing on your your back when my husband was spraying me. It's a very light mist and not heavy or thick. It doesn't leave you feeling greasy. I didn't notice any scent.
The one ounce is like a sample size. It was used on 3 adults and now looks half gone. I'd say we would use this up within 3 days. So it would be great for traveling on a plane or a weekend trip. 170 sprays sounds like a lot, but an adult will probably use about 20 sprays.
We were looking for a spray that does not have any gas in it to protect the environment a little.
I looks like this fits the bill. It is very oily but is absorbed easily by the skin.
I love this sunscreen. It is very light and sheer and when sprayed on and rubbed in and you can't even tell that it is on your skin. This is great for my daughter who doesn't like thick sunscreens and has extremely sensitive skin and burns easily. I can have this in my purse- hand it to her in the backseat and not worry about having a mess all over my seats. This is a great option- especially when I live in Florida and anything that you put in your car melts or start boiling practically. LOL
Works best on the body, like most products will run with extreme sweat into eyes and sting. Great scent and protects skin well. Combine with a hat and you're good to go!

I live in Colorado where the sun is critical almost daily. I use spray type for my body because it is convenient. First time using an actual hand spray type of sunscreen. I like this sunscreen because it is non oily almost like at all. Also, there are no sunscreen or fragrant scents whatsoever in this bottle. I like this sunscreen but I don't love because this sun product contains Octinoxate 7.50%. Octinoxate is what Reef in danger. I read the company's respond about Octinoxate. I would skip this product and get the product doesn't contain Octinoxate. Overall, this sun product is fantastic and non greasy I like this!
I received 1, 1 ounce bottle of KINeSYS travel size Spray Sunscreen. The sunscreen is SPF 50 daily sun protection UVA & UVB broad spectrum protection. The sunscreen is 80 minutes water & Sweat Resistant. The sunscreen is clear, non greasy and smells amazing.
I live at the beach in Southern CA. so lots of sun. I have 8 different types of sunscreens on a shelf for friends to use. Found this gem, I keep it hidden - at least till I get a few more. I'm a runner and cyclist.. also sweat a lot. I have allergies and very sensitive skin. This is it for me and happy I finally found something that works. I have the 30 though want to get the 50 for longer rides or runs. I've never paid attention if it's shiny or not.. beats melanoma. It dries and feels as if I'm not wearing it. I sweat and it doesn't burn my eyes. I appreciate the silky feel initially so it's easy to rub on. I use it all over and the bottle has lasted. I think the only downfall is because it's a pump spray.. it's hard to get my middle back evenly and I cannot reach to rub it in. I know, cuz i missed an area and had a fairly bad sunburn. So I have another spray.. different brand just to hit that hard to get area. At the beach, sand doesn't stick to it. While hiking, dirt doesn't cling.
Need I say more... found the right brand for me.
This is a great travel sunscreen. It goes on quite oily, but that goes away. Since I am at home, I don't care about the shine factor, but this be an issue if I wore this out in public. I would say great for a hike or an activity where you will shower shortly after. It did protect my skin.
On application, I found that this sunscreen is clear and (mostly) odorless.So far it has not irritated my skin. When first put on it feels a little oily (and is a bit shiny). After a while - 5-10 minutes perhaps - it sinks in and only a slight sheen remains.
I like the pump action of the dispenser - I generally spray it into the palm of my hand and then spread it where I want it to go.
I wanted a small spray of spf for my face. I wanted to be able to spray and go. This you can't do that because it burns your eyes, even if you close them tightly. I have to spray on my hand and wipe on my face for it not to get into my eyes. I do like this overall. I love that this is so small. Great to stick in your purse and go. It's not scented, which is great for the face. This does protect. I just wish I could spray and go.
Great sun protection. An oil instead of a cream. Sprays without aerosol. Water resistant. No scent.
I initially bought the small size of the unscented to try as a facial sunscreen. To my surprise it felt light going on and didn't sting my face like most other sunscreens. Additionally it did not cause my skin to break out or closed comedones. I even forgot to wash my face at night and it still didn't break me out.
After few weeks of using it I started using it on my tattoos to help prevent fading. It is so easy to use you just spray and rub.
The product says it is oil free but in place to give it slip they use Trimethicone that gives it a silicone feeling slip. I find when I apply the sunscreen it gives me a bit of shine on my face that slowly fades with time but never fully disappears. I have dry skin so this isn't a dealbreaker for me but if you want a matte sunscreen this isn't the product for you, although you could probably set it with powder to give you a matte look.
If you have tattoos this sunscreen is perfect for keeping them looking new. It take 10 seconds or less to apply and goes on clear unlike lotions that can leave a white cast and make them look fuzzy and skin look flakey. The mini is perfect for on the go, I keep the mini in my purse for days when I might need to reapply throughout the day.
Works great & has no smell which I like. Sensitive skin.
You can't get better sunscreen than this! One application will work for a couple of hours if you're swimming, and all day if you aren't. It applies like a dream, and doesn't stain clothes when it gets on them. This transforms "applying sunscreen on kids" from "the worst parental task ever" to something you will whip through quickly and easily without any complaints (from parent or child!). It has an EWG rating of 3, and I'm more than happy for that given how little success I've had with every sunscreen I've tried rated 1 or 2. So... this will be the sunscreen our family uses as long as they make it. Thank you to MEC for carrying it! :)
This is an awesome product! I swim and bike a lot in the sun and this is my go to sunscreen. Non greasy, non sticky, no overwhelming perfume.
I highly recommend this product. This oil-based sunscreen prevented burning of my skin and my skin was not irritated with this product.
I have only used it once and I was really impressed. It's not sticky and easy to apply. I have sensitive skin and I did not break out anywhere. It's non-scented which is another great feature.
Good sunblock for running that seems to go a long way. Didn't have any issues that you would normally expect such as the suncream running into your eyes.
No scent at all. Dries down to an invisible finish. Does not have alcohol in it like other invisible formulas (from Japan or Korea). Does not burn or sting my eyes at all. My face is getting more pale the longer I've been wearing it so it means its working. I have sun spots and melasma. I run outdoors and sweat profusely in the Texas heat. Is sweat resistant and waterproof, so remember to reapply every hour/hour and half or so. I have tried so many others, but this one is IT. I have purchased a back up already. My first bottle is lasting 4 months - and I apply at least twice a day. Mostly I use on my face, neck and d?collete but now the summer is coming i might go through it faster because i use it on my shoulders and upper arms where i have a tattoo sleeve. Feels super comfortable to wear all day. I do not put moisturizer, only serum underneath and have no issues. It does feel a little greasy at first but if you wait 5 mins it dries down. Better than most other sunscreens that require 20 mins or more. I squirt 2 pumps into my hands and its enough to cover my face and neck, another pump and i spread on my chest and back of neck and behind ears. This stuff is perfection. I haven't had the desire to try other sunscreens since I've discovered this. I wear sunscreen every day, even indoors because I am on retinol and have lots of sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Works fantastic under foundation.
Goes on feeling oily & greasy, but quickly sinks in. I sprayed it over make-up & it was great. My boyfriend even liked it!
Recommended by my doctor. It works.
Despite the high price, it's worth it. After a summer of long runs, I'm still almost the same pasty-white shade as when I started in the spring. It works SO well that I still need a vitamin-D supplement.
Spray onto your hands to coat face and neck and cup hands around the area when spraying arms and legs to catch what would miss. Coat twice.
TIP: Buy one of the SMALL spray bottles of it and keep refilled it out of the larger bottles. That way, you'll have a handy compact bottle for re-spray on long outings in the sun. Fits easily in a corner of my running waist pouch.
Best sunscreen ever. I have used this for years and I have 2 types of Lupus, one is a very rare form that attacks the Skin . This is the only sunscreen that works and doesn't irritate my skin!
All the Kinesys products are awesome. They are non greasy and it doesn't even feel like you have sunscreen on. I use them on top of my face moisturizer and you can't even tell.
Our family keeps them in the car also for ease of use.
And - they are CANADIAN! From BC. Love it.
I have red hair and freckles, and was born in Florida in August. I had a melanoma removed from my left fore-arm a few years ago, so sun protection is very important to me.
This product has always been hard to find, due no doubt to the domination of the market by the usual suspects. I got my first batch in an end-of-season closeout at a store that went out of business about 15 years ago (R.I.P. GI Joes). I have always determinedly sought it out because it's so good.
The KINeSYS products can be sprayed on the hand and efficiently and effectively spread where they need to go. They may initially feel "greasy" to some, but this is an illusion. They soon soak in, leaving just an effective layer.
Unlike old-fashioned creamy "suntan lotion" that they had when I was a kid 50 years ago, KINeSYS is as clear as water, and remains so, and isn't remotely as greasy as they were. The clear nature of KINeSYS encourages adequate usage, even among too-cool-for-school teenagers who don't want to have white cream residue showing.
I am far from a "sun-worshipper," but I do like to attend outdoor concerts, and other events where shade is impossible. With KINeSYS, even with my white skin I can be outside for hours on end and not even have a skin flush the next day. Reapplying every couple of hours is recommended, but it's so un-messy that this is no big deal.
KINeSYS is what sun screen should always have been!
I've tried so many sunscreens and this is the one I have stuck with now for about 5 years. I use it for everyday use up to running marathons. It stays on and works. It feels oily/wet for the first minute, but don't be fooled it drys perfectly and you can't even tell you put anything on. It's the only sunscreen my husband can use on his face after shaving. I buy it as presents for other people!!
I wish it had a matte finish. Other than that, it is a good spray-on sunscreen
I love this sunscreen!!! It seriously doesn't feel like you have sunscreen on!!! I agree with the other review that all their products are awesome!! Will definitely keep buying!!
This is the best sunscreen I have ever used! I have allergies to almost all scented products so I was very relieved when I found out about KINeSYS. I will not use anything else ever again!
I use conventional lotion type sunscreens for my face, arms, etc. But I have thinning hair on top of my head that is subject to sunburn (I don't wear a hat). The lotions make a mess when used in the thin spot in my hair. Sort of a plastered-down look. The KINeSYS sunscreen is liquid and spreads easily without having a noticeable impact on the hair in the area. No one would know I used it. It has prevented sunburn even when spending hours outside in bright summer sunlight.
This is the only product I have found that works so well in this situation. I buy the unscented version which has no tropical or coconut odor like many lotions have.
All time favourite sunscreen. Skin feels great, not greasy. Ordered from the website and was impressed with the communication and prompt delivery.
Being outdoors all the time means I do value a good sunscreen, from the mountains to the oceans and everything in between!
KINeSYS is great! Not sticky, oily or unpleasant and it offers good sun protection.
My family is all really sensitive to the chemicals in perfumes so we've been making our own shampoos, conditioners etc for years. I love that KINeSYS is Fragrance Free!
I like that the product is fragrance and preservative free and also that it doesn't leave my skin and hands greasy.
I also feel it also lets my skin breathe and doesn't feel suffocated.
I love the product. In fact I'm almost done the big spray bottle. It's light and easy to apply. It doesn't feel greasy and my kids also love it. I will definitely use it moving forward and have been recommending it to friends and family. The little spray bottle will be great for traveling to races when I only have carry on.
I love that KINeSYS allows me to be active and my sweaty self while still protecting my skin.
I marathon train and am outdoors a lot so being able to use a product that doesn't burn my eyes as most sunscreens do is a huge bonus.
I also love that when you apply it it doesn't leave the normal oily sunscreen film on your skin. It goes everywhere with me!
Thank you! Your support of ATRA provided me with this opportunity to be introduced to KINeSYS products. I have benefited from all the products on my recent outdoor excursions. Living in Colorado and being active, requires sun protection, especially after a surprising melanoma removal last year, successfully caught early, but still a shock. I am now a proponent of reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours of being outdoors. Therefore, taking along the spray on applicators of the SPF 30 and 50 Performance Sunscreens makes for a quick and easy reapplication.
I was after a sunscreen that was well wearing while doing triathlons (I use it for everything else but this was my reason for searching for a better product at the time when I found KINeSYS), wasn't greasy or creamy and easy to apply.
What I like most about KINeSYS sunscreen is that it is lightweight, dries fast, and stays put, even on my sweatiest Florida runs.
I love how easy it is to apply and that the containers are not huge, so carrying it in my purse is so do able.
Excellent sunscreen for face and body. Most sunscreens burn my face around my eyes. This one does not. I highly recommend KINeSYS.
I used to run a nature based preschool and we needed something for our kids who were outside all day. A friend who worked for EWG shared that the president of EWG only used this sunscreen. Curious, I reached out and we ended up buying in bulk for all the years I ran the school. If applied properly (sprayed on, not sprayed into hands and rubbed on) it offers fabulous protection and the ingredients are extremely safe. Over the years I had a number of phone conversations with the founder of the company, and really believe in the methodology, and the effectiveness. My personal family has used nothing else for 10 years, including 4 extremely fair skinned people, 2 swim team kids, and we own a beach cottage. We've never once had a sunburn issue. Kinesys is one of my top ten lifetime products.
Best sunscreen there is
This doesn't feel like sunscreen. So light and not greasy it is amazing.
J. L. Shockley
This is fragrance free! It has a slight scent of unscented lotion, if you know what I mean. It is a bit oily, but I am not using it on my face. I like the pump action, which allows for more control of how much is sprayed. Why oh why can't regular sunscreen makers have fragrance-free choices? Better yet, why add fragrance at all? It is getting harder to find fragrance-free deodorant, lotions, face cream, shaving cream...what is the deal? By the time you add your soap, shampoo and conditioner you could have 6 to 8 different scents about you. YUCK!
It actually works!
IMHO KINeSYS is the best sunscreen on the planet. Easy to apply, long lasting, very water proof, and travel friendly. I have been using their products for about 4 years now and have really quit buying any other sunscreen. Kids love it as well and since it isn't an aerosol spray it isn't cold when you apply it. I usually use the 30 spf for myself but use this 50 spf for the kids. Great sunscreen for anyone who is active as well as it seems to be very sweat resistant also.
Love this product. Use it religiously! Daily!
