Kinesys Sunscreen Review and Giveaway!!

I am white. I don't mean ethnically but I have that slightly transparent, glow in the dark white skin. I can't tan. I burn bad, turn bright red and then turn white again even if I don't peel. In addition to my fairness, sking cancer is prevelant in my family. So as you can imagine sunscreen is important in this house. I recently received 2 bottles of sunscreen to review from Kinesys. I received the Kids SPF 30 sunscreen. It is a pump spray that said that you didn't need to rub it in, which I doubted, but I was really surprised that if you hold it away from you a good distance you really don't need to rub it in. With 4 kids to sunscreen, that saves an immeasurable amount of time and annoyance. It is also fragrance free, which I loved! You really had to hold their arm to your nose to smell any tell tale sunscreen smell. I also received the SPF 30 Girl Sunscreen (yes, that is what it is called) which is Vanilla Green Tea scented. Is smells very nice, not to heavy and very pleasant. This also was a truly no rub spray.

Both of these appear to work very well. I only say appear because it has either been so hot you aren't going out (96) or very mild so I haven't gotten a chance to try it out as thouroughly as I would like. It is very light feeling so you don't have that oily heavy feeling. It also watches off very easily. My only issue is that they are water and sweat resistant and not proof. Since it is often over 100 here during the summer and water is a big cooling tool, that isn't the best for us. But over all there are really nice products! Kinesys is offering a 10% coupon Code BRC10 (free shipping on orders over $45 AFTER the discount) on all purchases right now! But what is better than a coupon? Winning it free of course!

Oil-free / Alcohol-free / PABA-free / Preservative-free

gotta love that! And they have a fragrance free formula so you don't have to smell like the beach!

I could have used that this weekend when I got fried at the ball diamond.

In their effort to "be green", they print using vegetable-based inks when available. Thanks for the review and giveaway!

I learned that it is sweat resistant and easy to apply.

It's that time again. To seed the house, both cars, and diaper bags with sunscreen. Seems no matter how much I buy, it's not in the right place at the right time!
