Does anyone else think that sunscreen is a total pain? What kid wants to stop having fun to think about keeping his skin from burning in the sun? Most kids don’t think about it – that’s what moms are for! But trying to get your child to stand still while you slather stinky creams on and try to cover every area that could burn isn’t easy. Especially if you, like me, have two children under 4 who are wiggle worms and don’t even understand the concept of sun danger!
I received the four Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock products with Helioplex Technology you see in the photo above to try out and share my thoughts about here. One is meant especially for kids, and the rest are different SPF levels. But what makes them different from the many of the other sunscreen products on the market is the fact that they can be sprayed onto wet skin. No, you don’t have to have your child dry off when it’s time to reapply – don’t you love that? I certainly do.
It sprays onto wet or dry skin in a fine, widespread mist, making complete coverage of all areas that might burn EASY. I’m always missing spots that burn so this is something I really appreciate. It also means less waste – how many times I have accidentally squirted too much sunscreen into my palm and ended up wasting it. I really like the way this is applied.
It also doesn’t leave a glob of drippy white cream on your skin!
One other thing that is very important to me when it comes to sunscreen products is scent. Some products are SO strongly scented that I don’t even want it on my skin. You know, you have to take a shower immediately after your activities because it smells so much. But these sunscreens have a mild scent – they didn’t make me feel like I needed to stick my kids in the tub right away when we came inside. Definite plus.
Tried It and Loved It!
I let my daughter Emma be the guinea pig and test out the new sunscreen. She ran around in the sprinkler outside, getting herself nice and wet. The sun was hitting us hard. I know because I didn’t put any of this sunscreen on my face and I wish I had! I covered Emma, though, and she didn’t burn after 45 minutes playing in the hot, hot sun. Yes!
Yes, it was inevitable that she would strip down to her diaper and play in the water that way! Toddlers are all about freedom. :) And I was happy to be able to easily spray her down so she wouldn’t burn.
I’m most certainly recommending this product and will definitely be purchasing for my family in the future!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neutrogena and received sunscreen and other Neutrogena products as a thank you for my participation.
