A certain little boy at our house LOVES summer and everything that comes with it – hanging out at the pool, riding his bike, running through the sprinklers and riding his scooter. But he’s a very fair complexioned lad. And I don’t want him to end up like his mama in 25 years -- having a dermatologist say, “Its not an ‘if you get skin cancer’, due to your years of sun damage, its more like a ‘when’." Gah!
I despise applying lotions to my little wiggle worm. And while in Florida, I tried Coppertone's Kid's Spray. Thanks to Coppertone, he got a splotchy sunburn (his first ever sunburn). So when The Parent Bloggers Network was looking for people to review KINeSYS, I was all ovah dat.
KINeSYS is a leader in performance sunscreens. You want to run a marathon or spend most of your day in the sun? KINeSYS has you covered. (Bad pun intended.) And when parents asked for a sunscreen for kids, the company whipped up an orange-bottled somethin' they like to call FUNSCREEN™ that's targeted at children under 12 years of age.
In short? Me likey. My boy likey. And when Seth went to the pool with his best bud Josh, I sent the sample size along for Josh's mom to try. And they likey too!
The spray is super easy to apply to antsy children. There's no rubbing so you can "spray and go". And while it can feel a bit greasy going on, it dries fairly quickly. Once the product dries, there's no residue feeling. And for kids who are very sensitive to the feel of fabrics and lotion on their skin, (like Seth) this is a big deal.
The KINeSYS folks were kind enough to include a bottle of the performance sunscreen (which I loved. Mango smell. Yummy!) as well as a sunscreen stick. Both products were very effective and also easy to apply.
My only beef is that I wish I had found out about KINeSYS earlier. This would have been a wonderful product to take with us last year when we went to Mexico or even two months ago when we went to Florida and a few theme parks. But at least we've got it now. We've got some more pool parties to attend and a ski trip is planned for the winter. We plan on taking our little bottle of KINeSYS to all of these events.
