Coppertone Kids and Water Babies Sunscreen Review

As spring rapidly approaches, the weather in Florida is just perfect. It is warm and breezy and the sun is shining brightly. My husband and I made the mistake this weekend to not apply sunscreen to ourselves or our children before spending the afternoon outdoors and unfortunately we all ended up with a sun burn. This was a wake-up call for our family that it is important to apply sunscreen even if it doesn’t feel like you need it.

Recently, I received two Coppertone® products from the Coppertone Kids® and Coppertone Water Babies® line. I really like the new Coppertone Water Babies® Delicate Foaming Lotion in SPF 75+. This broad spectrum sunscreen provides waterproof UVA/UVB protection. My three little ones are extremely fair skinned and the damage the sun can do is potentially dangerous especially to my son who suffered second and third degree burns this summer in a campfire accident. Though he must always wear a protective sleeve when outside, he still needs sunscreen underneath or those burning Florida rays can still penetrate. Coppertone Water Babies Foaming Lotion® applies very easily in a moisture- rich foam which spreads nicely, absorbs into the skin and is PABA free too. It didn’t sting their sensitive skin at all and this is important because two of my children have eczema and have had negative reactions from new skin care products. My favorite sunscreens are also sprays because of how easy it is to apply, especially to my children’s skin. I will definitely be using a lot of this new Coppertone product during the year!

Coppertone Kids®  Continuous Spray in SPF 50 uses a blend of antioxidant vitamins to “supplement skin’s natural defenses.” This spray is waterproof and applies very quickly and to even the squirmiest little ones. It is dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. Coppertone Kids® Continuous Spray is always in my travel bag for impromptu outings to the park, beach, pool etc.

Beautiful weather means lots of outdoor fun……don’t forget to protect yourself and your family with Coppertone®, the #1 Pediatrician recommended brand of sunscreen.
