I surveyed 50 middle school students and asked this question: What do you prefer, spray sunblock or lotion sunblock? The results came in as follows:

Spray: 44

Lotion: 6

Many stated, “It is a long process with lotion to cover your entire body, but with spray, it is much quicker and it covers your body much faster.” Some said, “Lotion takes too long.”

The few people who picked lotion said, “It protects your body better than spray,” or “It stays on your body for longer periods of time as opposed to spray coming off quickly.”
