No matter where you live and what you do a good sunscreen is a MUST. I wish I would have known this at a younger age. I’m sure my skin would have less sunspots and a lot less signs of aging. Unfortunately, the promotion of sunscreen was not a big thing when I was growing up. Fortunately, we now know its importance and can promote the use of it for ourselves and especially for our kids.

When I was given the opportunity to try Sweetsation Therapy’s Sun’n’Fun Broad Specturm Sunscreen for Kids SPF 30 I was more than excited. Our family spends a tremendous amount of time outdoors at the beach, parks, and sports fields. We spend way more time out doors than indoors 🙂

Tamanu oil contributes to the formula with it’s strong anti-inflammatory properties and helps with dry skin and eczema. Combination of Cocoa and a hint of Vanilla create that yummy chocolate scent, that’s achieved naturally, as well as have moisturizing and healing properties. This product was created for our tiny friends but our grown-up friends can use it too. It’s highly addictive….
Our bottle of Sun’n’Fun Broad Spectrum Sunscreen for Kids arrived very quickly and was package in a nice safe bottle to insure there would be no damage or leakage.
The bottle of Sun’n’Fun Broad Spectrum Sunscreen for Kids that Sweetsation Therapy sent us was 3.3 oz and the scent was chocolate. Yes, there was a lovely scent that wasn’t too strong. It was a nice light chocolate aroma that my littlest one just loved. She said yummy every time we put it on her. My other kids and I really like the smell too.
This Broad Spectrum Sunscreen for Kids is a light brownish color and goes on very lightly. There is no greasy feeling and it does absorb very quickly. Even though it absorbs quickly I still think it’s a good idea to apply it 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. That is just my personal preference and what I have found works best for my kids.
Since this SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen for Kids is water resistant it makes it nice for the kids to play in the water without worrying it’s going to run and irritate the kids eyes. I use SPF 30 sunscreens when we are in a more shaded area or when we aren’t going to be in the sun for very long or during the harmful sun hours
When we will be out in direct sun for many hours or I know it’s not possible to avoid the harmful times of 10 Am to 2 PM I will always go towards a higher SPF.
The level of SPF in this sunscreen is very good for every day use. I’ve noticed we’re able to enjoy our park time with no sunburns when we get home. There is no funny white film on our skin and its mess free. I love that there is no oily residue.
I love how Sweetsation Therapy makes a wonderful mineral sunscreen for kids that is safe and provides all the antioxidants us parents need and want in our children’s sunscreen. There are no harmful chemicals and I feel 100% safe using it with my precious little ones. I find sunscreens that contain Zinc work the best, especially in this Hawaiian Sun.
One of my sons has sensitive skin, when using the Sun’n’Fun Broad Spectrum Sunscreen for Kids he had absolutely no reaction, rashes or itching. It worked very nicely for him.
This is a great sunscreen that works very well and is made of fabulous ingredients we all want for our children. It’s made so kids will enjoy having it put on and won’t fight having to have it reapplied. It’s sold at a reasonable price. The size seems a little small at first, but it’s made with such quality ingredients that you don’t need as much as other sunscreens on the market. I felt this smaller bottle lasted as long as bottles double its size.
Without a doubt I can say as a mother and as a pediatric nurse one of the most important and preventative things we can do for our children and teach our children is the importance of sunscreen. No matter if you tan, burn or barely go out in the sun. Sunscreen protection is needed. Just an ounce of prevention now can save us and our loved ones horrible consequences. Remember, if in doubt use sunscreen.
