Sun protection is extremely important. I have 3 little fair skinned red heads that have to be smothered with sunscreen every time we step outside. It is one of the reasons that I sometimes just avoid taking them out all together, because it’s so much work. I got an opportunity to sample this AVEENO® BABY NATURAL PROTECTION FACE STICK WITH BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 50 and it was perfect timing for 2 of our busiest and hottest outdoor weekends.
The product kind of looks like deodorant. It is a solid white stick that you wipe across the face and then blend in with your finger tips. I appreciate many things about this product and the Aveeno brand as a whole. This stick is fragrance free, water resistant and oil-free, it is also made from naturally-sourced ingredients. It is pediatrician recommended and was developed with leading dermatologists. It is an extra gentle formula that is specially designed for baby’s sensitive skin, like mine. It has a special Mineralscreen Technology that provides long-lasting sun protection by forming a protective barrier on top of baby’s skin that scatters both UVA and UVB rays, without irratating it.
Overall, I really liked this product. It was fairly easy to apply, not necessarily quick, but easy. It blocked the sun well, protecting us from sunburn. I am glad that it is a high SPF. I did not have to worry about it dripping into my kids eyes. It was not greasy like most lotions or sprays so I wasn’t worried about it leaving stains on clothes. I would be proud to recommend this product. Let’s keep our sweet little babies skin soft and pure for as long as we can.
