Review ~ KINeSYS Sunscreen

Sunscreen is so important to use year round, especially in children. Most kids though, do not like getting sunscreen put on. I know my oldest hates getting it put on. When I was asked to review KINeSYS sunscreen, I was pretty excited. They are the only oil and alcohol-free, non-aerosol spray sunscreens on the market. All of the KINeSYS sunscreens are hypoallergic, non-comedogenic, broad sprectrum UVA & UVB protection, water & sweat resistent, preservative and PABA-free. If that isn't enough, they use recycled packaging, the sunscreens are cruelty -free, vegan, biodegradable and their manufacturer is carbon neutral.

I was sent the 1oz sizes of the KIDS SPF 30 Alcohol free Sunscreen Spray and the new SPF 30 Girl Sunscreen Spray. Before using the product, it is recommended to watch the quick video on proper application. After watching that, I tested out the GIRL Sunscreen spray.

My 11 year old daughter didn't complain at all, which is quite rare, lol. She loved the pink bottle and sparkly writing {good choice KINeSYS} It is super easy to put on, has a nice smell & has a super lightweight feel. My daughter couldn't even feel it which she really liked. The stuff we used this summer was a Zinc Oxide formula that was a bit hard to put on. She told me she preferred this sunscreen and loved the spray!

My 7 year old daughter is super girly, so she loved the pink bottle as well. She also like the sunscreen. She is more easy going, so the bottle & spray were her favorite parts.

The next day we tried the Kids SPF30 spray which is excellant as well. One of my favorite features of the spray bottle though is the ease of getting the ears and neck. These are two places that usually show signs of Skin Cancer first (if you are driver, watch your left side!). It is also easier to get the scalp, I know my 7 year old always burns at her pigtail part in the summer.
