Having fair skinned children and living in Texas, we have to wear sunscreen pretty much anytime we are going to be outside for more than half an hour. My kids get sun burnt so easily, so I have to make sure they are WELL coated! Sadly, most sunscreen is thick, greasy and smelly. My kids always whine and complain about it. “Do I haaaaave to?” is what I hear and then I proceed to lube them up with the glue-like lotion. The worst part is that I have to SCRUB my hands to get it off of myself after I apply it to them.
Luckily, I got to try this AMAZING sunscreen for kids and my kids love it! It soaks into your skin super fast so there is no nasty, greasy, sticky residue which means I don’t have to ban them from sitting on furniture after they have had the lotion applied. It smells like chocolate marshmallow which is why they love it so much! The scent is light but yummy and sticks around for a long time.
The Sun’n’Fun Broad Spectrum Mineral Sunscreen for Kids is an SPF 30 which could be higher in my opinion. Especially since my kids are super white and could benefit from a higher SPF. However, you will need to reapply often (every 80 minutes) if swimming and at least every two hours if just out in the sun. Reapplying is very important, so don’t think that you can go all day with one application!! You will likely end up lobster-like!
