I’ve never been the best at using sunscreen, I’ve been more of a tanning oil girl. But now I’m a Mama and keeping my baby safe from the sun’s rays – and keeping myself safe so I can stick around and take care of her – are a top priority for me. When Mom Central offered me the chance to test out some Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray I jumped at the chances since summertime equals one thing to me – fun in the sun!
There’s something about Neutrogena products that I’m always drawn to. I think it’s because the packaging looks very clinical and scientific, and therefore in my mind “better” that I always try new Neutrogena products. Now, I was not able to try the sun protection part because we’ve had January weather here in the Bay Area but that wasn’t the part that I was worried about. I knew the sunblock would protect from sun burn. I was more concerned with things like application, smell, stickiness and wear. The Wet Skin sunblock did not disappoint.
There are two stand-out features about the Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock. First, the sunblock has a spray applicator which makes getting the sunscreen on the kiddos a lot easier. My Tiny Dancer does not sit still – getting anything on her is a challenge – but the novelty of the spray and its ability to cover a surface evenly really helped. You can actually see the sunblock go on so you don’t have to worry about uneven application or fingerprint sunburns. The spray applicator also has a turn lock so you don’t have to worry about spills or accidental sprays and you can travel safely with the sunblock.
Second, you can apply the sunblock on wet skin. If you and the family are in the sun long enough, re-application is a necessity. Many sunblocks are water proof but the Neutrogena Wet Skin sunblock ups the ante. Not only is it waterproof but you can apply it to wet skin and you actually see it on the surface of your skin. The Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock also had a pleasant fresh smell, wasn’t sticky and didn’t leave a weird film on the skin.
The Nuetrogena Wet Skin Sunblock comes in an array of SPFs for adults and a special formula SPF 70+ for the kiddos. As a special offer, you can save $2 when you purchase Neutrogena products online.
