Mom, You Forgot My Sunscreen!

I never thought I’d hear my daughter remind me to put sunscreen on her. She’d do everything in her power to avoid this, but since I received a trial of KINeSYS SPF 30 Girl Vanilla-Green Tea Spray, she actually asks me to apply it before she goes outdoors.

Living in Florida, even if it’s cloudy or cool, we use sunscreen a lot. Having a history of Skin Cancer in our family, I’m overzealous in using it on my daughter. But actually getting it on her is a chore. When sprays first came out I was thrilled. No more rubbing creams or lotions on. But taking the time for spraying and feeling oily after, still had me practically holding my daughter down for sunscreen time.

The fist thing that Peanut liked about KINeSYS was the "cool pink bottle". She said that "Even though I’m not a girly girl, the sparkly letters got my attention." When I showed her how easy it is to apply she was thrilled! She is really sensitive about how things feel, like most of the time I have to cut tags off of her shirts, her socks have to have lines on the toes that go across just right and so on. So feeling just a light spray and then nothing made her happy. I was concerned about the fragrance as perfumes bother her but she liked the vanilla smell. No coughing or teary eyes. "Now I can use this to get people’s attention!" she said.

There’s a lot for me to like about KINeSYS . It is not only oil free, alcohol-free, preservative and PABA-free, it is also water and sweat-resistant. It is also hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. It provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. KINeSYS sunscreens are dermatologist-recommended so no worries for parents of children with sensitive skin.

KINeSYS offers sun care products for adults and children. There are different types including a Sun Protection Stick, Sunscreen Cream with Titanium Dioxide and a Family Pack. To top it all off, KINeSYS has been awarded the PTPA Media Inc. (Parent Tested, Parent Approved) seal of approval.

I can tell you honestly that we will be purchasing this sunscreen. It’s easy to use, my daughter actually likes it and it will save me a lot of worry and frustration.

Thanks to Family Review Network for this opportunity.

  1. What a great idea to market sunscreen in a way that makes kids actually like putting it on-thanks for sharing this review.

  2. That’s a cute bottle! I have trouble getting the kids to put on sunscreen but I think a cute, pink bottle might help! Wonder if it’s going to be available down under….

  3. Applying sunblock ranks right up there with root canal for me so when the sprays came out, I did the happy dance for weeks!

    I wish they weren’t so much more expensive though.

  4. It is a great idea. However it’s hard to think about sunscreen when I’m sitting here watching the season’s first snow flurries!

  5. Great idea! Sunblock is an essential for me. I’m light skinned with lots of freckles.. so the sun is not good to me.
