Works well!

Posted

Pros: works well, natural, pleasant smell

Cons: Apply 15 minutes ahead or be greasy/white (like most sunscreen)

I've been using this since 2008 with great success on my daughter. It's rated well on the cosmetic safety database. It applies like any commercial sunscreen and has a pretty high spf for a natural product.

My son has never had a sunburn while wearing this

Posted

Pros: Great sun protection, easy to apply, physical sunblock, water-proof

Cons: Like most physical blocks, leave a white cast on skin

I love this sunscreen for my son. We've been using it for years, and he has never had a sunburn. He's a very active (re: sweaty) 8 year old, and one application in the morning before school protects him through 3 recesses and after-school care. He also wears it while at the beach and at Disney. One application for Disney lasts all day. We do reapply after swimming at the beach.   Like most physical blocks, it will turn your skin white.   I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, and it does clog my pores a little if I wear it. Not a full blown break-out though. So I only wear it if I'm going to be outside all day (like at the beach). It would be too much to wear as a daily...

Our #1 Choice for Sunsceen

Posted

Pros: water-resistant; fragrance free, also free of PABA, parabens, etc.

Cons: expensive but worth it!

Our family of 8 has used this sunscreen for years and it's our #1 choice. I use it on our six daughters (ages 2-12) and we have always avoided sunburns on days where we have long exposure to sun. They have gone swimming and never need to reapply. This sunscreen is highly recommended! I also order it from Vitacost.com where it is usually cheaper than other sites such as Amazon.com or in retail stores.

great natural sunscreen

Posted

Pros: works well, natural

Cons: expensive

I was so happy to find this product. After seeing all the ingredients that go into regular sunscreen I needed to find something that was natural. It applies easily, goes on white but when rubbed in is almost clear. Ive used it when at the beach and going sailing, my daughter is extremely fair skinned and has not suffered sunburn when I have used it. I like the safe ingredients used and the fragrance free aspect of it too, although I also like the California Baby insect repellent sunscreen with citronella. It is a little expensive, but I have found I dont use as much of it as others seem to use of some of the other sunscreens, and I like the feeling that my baby is safely protected from...

Good sunscreen for little ones!

Posted

Pros: Natural ingredients, toxin-free, fragrance free

Cons: Pricey

I like that this sunscreen uses natural ingredients and highly micronized titanium dioxide instead of harmful toxins.  I don't often put sunscreen on my son, but if we're going to be in direct sunlight for a long time, I will put this on him.  I really like California Baby products.  They are a bit pricey, but they work well and are made of natural ingredients.
