Summer Special: Favorite Sunscreen

La Roche-Posay on The Sent

I often get asked what sunscreen I prefer for myself and the kids. I found this La Roche-Posay sunscreen at CVS and it was buy one, get the second half off. It rubs on smoothly, doesn’t turn your skin white (a major pet-peeve of mine is looking like a ghost once I’ve added my spf), and so far seems to be keeping my skin from getting much color. This sunscreen is 60 spf – I rarely wear less than 30. I brought one tubeĀ of this sunscreen on our recent trip to Italy. It was scorching hot and we spent much of our time on the beach or in a boat. I applied twice a day and didn’t get even a slight burn all week.

In other news we were using Babyganics sunscreen on the kids the first week of summer. Sadly both girls got a sunburn while wearing it and my 7-year-old broke out in a funny rash. Since then we have moved back to good old fashioned Coppertone Water Babies and it seems to be doing the trick.

  1. You should look into mineral based sunscreens for you and the kids. I have been loving kiss my face cool sport air powered spray and ThinkSport. Both have no chemicals so you feel better about what you are putting on the kids skin.
