|The color changing cap has major kid appeal|
For Father's Day weekend we went up to a fun cabin on a lake. Which meant we spent the better part of the weekend on the lake and out in the sun. It was the perfect opportunity to try out a couple of new sunscreens I had this summer.
The hands down winner was Blue Lizard Sensitive Sunscreen. It's a barrier sunscreen with zinc and titanium dioxides, the kind I prefer to use on my kids because there are no toxic chemicals in it.
The first thing I noticed was that it wasn't nearly as greasy as some of the other barrier sunscreens and it spread easily without leaving my kids looking like ghosts.
Another cool feature is, depending on which size you get, either the cap or the whole bottle turns from white/clear to blue in the presence of UV rays. Perfect for when you're wondering if you really need to put on sunscreen. One of the days we were at the lake it was fairly cloudy so the cap changed slowly, but it did still change. Less exposure to the UV rays, but they were still obviously there. Layer up!
I typically don't use this kind of sunscreen on myself, we're still using up some of the more chemical laden stuff we had from a couple years ago, but this Blue Lizard one was so much less greasy that I did use it on myself and ended up feeling about the same as usual. Now that impressed me!
Blue Lizard is an Australian company and as my husband says, the Aussies know what it's about when it comes to sun so they make products that work. I'm happy to report, there were no sunburns that weekend!
