Keeping the kiddos comfortable and safe in the sun!

Can you believe it’s already July?  Why is it that summer flies by so quickly?

My first several weeks of summer vacation have been so busy.  I’ve been able to enjoy several beach glass walks on Lake Erie either super early morning or later in the evening, but this was the first week I officially got to “go to the beach” with the kids during the day and enjoy the warmth and the sand and the sun and the waves and it was GREAT!

Fortunately, I had received Coppertone’s line of Cleary Sheer products to try for free from BzzAgent so I was prepared!

My kids always dread having to get slathered with sunscreen.  When they get to the beach or the pool, they have playing to do, they don’t want to waste the time it takes to get their sun protection.  They also don’t like the heavy feeling of most sunscreens on their skin or how long it takes to blend it in to keep it from looking thick and white.   Well, sorry kids!  Sunscreen is not a negotiable matter!

Fortunately, we had the Coppertone Sunscreen Protective Spray SPF 50, which went on easily, evenly and quickly on all their exposed skin!  On our faces, I used the Coppertone Clearly Sheer Broad Spectrum SPF 50.  Both sunscreens, the spray and the lotion,  absorbed very easily without leaving that thick white hard to blend look on their skin!  I personally appreciated how light the sunscreen felt.  It didn’t make my face feel oily at all.  In fact, it felt clean and soft, like a moisturizer!

We were at the beach during prime sun hours.  Unfortunately, one of the kids that was with us, somehow got past the sunscreen patrol and after a couple hours, ended up with a painful burn!  My kids had a little color, but none of us got sunburned.  And we only had applied the Coppertone once, when we first got to the beach.

There are so many choices when you go to the store and it can be so overwhelming, but I’m glad I got a chance to try this line out.   I will definitely buy this product again!

Here are some of the benefits of using COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer sunscreens:

  • Absorbs in seconds for a clean and light feel
  • Moisturizing formulas help leave your skin soft and smooth
  • Won’t clog pores or cause breakouts (clinically tested on acne-prone skin)
  • Matte finish is perfect for use under makeup

I talked about using sunscreen when you go to the beach but remember, sunscreen is important to wear anytime you go out in the sun and no matter what age you are!
