Amazon Mountain Falls - Sunscreens for Spring

Heck yeah, warm weather is coming! We tested Amazon Mountain Falls against Coppertone and Banana Boat. We are NOT paid to do reviews. Remember guys, SPF is SPF. From a functional standpoint, we tend to recommend the generic. If you care about smell, feel, and afterfeel, look to us for the details!

Coppertone Ultra Guard Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 vs. Mountain Falls Ultra Sunscreen Spray SPF 30

Similarity Score: 87%

We like this dupe! Mountain Falls comes with a protective seal. It also has a more pleasant fragrance than Coppertone, which just smells like sunscreen. With the same sun protection ingredients, we say go ahead and make the switch. *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.

Coppertone Sport Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 30 vs. Mountain Falls Sport Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Similarity Score: 85%

These are very similar products! The store brand comes with a seal but its cap is harder to press and spray compared to the name brand. Despite this, testers agreed they would still make the switch as both products deliver the same effect. *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.

Coppertone Water Babies Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 vs. Mountain Falls Sunscreen for Babies SPF 50

Similarity Score: 80%

The packaging of the name brand is a little more appealing with the grooves on the sides of the bottle, and the sunscreen comes out much faster. The store brand has a slightly stronger sunscreen smell while the name brand smells more like baby wipes. The store brand's texture is thicker but both formulas rub into the skin the same. Testers agreed they wouldn't care so much about smell and texture when making the purchase, so as long as they have the same sun protection they would make the switch to the store brand here! *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.

Coppertone Sport Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 vs. Mountain Falls Ultra Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

Similarity Score: 77%

Testers came to a draw in this comparison. If you prefer a thicker sunscreen then you're better off with the name brand. However, if you don't mind a slightly stronger sunscreen scent and creamier consistency, you're safe with Mountain Falls. Our pick

Coppertone Kids Sunscreen Spray SPF 50 vs. Mountain Falls Sunscreen Spray for Kids Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Similarity Score: 69%

As far as packaging, the store brand included a protective seal but testers noticed that it was harder to spray than the name brand. Both products smelled strongly of alcohol at first but once rubbed into the skin the smell faded for both. Some testers thought the name brand was slightly greasier but others didn't notice a difference. The results of the comparison were split - half the testers thought the strong smell and difficult spray button on the store brand were deal breakers while the other half could look past that for the better price. This might have to come down to preference. *Some generics have been provided to Brandefy at no cost, but testers were unaware of this and therefore, it did not influence our opinions about the quality of the private label.
