Mommy review: Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick with SPF 50
20 Jul 2015
Moms! I know we’re already towards to end of July, but if you’re still in the market for a sunscreen for your son or daughter, you might like this one by Aveeno. It’s their Baby Natural Protection Face Stick with SPF 50. It’s not just for babies, if you ask me. It’s for all ages, but especially for small kids because their skin is extra sensitive. It has 100% naturally-sourced sunscreen ingredients. I’ve been using it on my son Mason (who’s definitely not a baby anymore, he’ll be 3 in a few weeks!) and below are my thoughts on it. I like it a lot, but there’s also something I don’t like about it. If you’re not happy with the sunscreen you’re currently using on your child(ren) or if they’re not using any sunscreen at all, this review is for you!
What it is
AVEENO Baby Natural Protection Face Stick Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 contains ‘Mineralguard’ Technology with 100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients, a more natural alternative. Formulated with ‘Active Naturals’ Colloidal Oatmeal and mineral ingredients (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide), this sunscreen forms a protective barrier on top of the skin that scatters UVA and UVB rays for superior sun protection. It ensures your babyâ€™s delicate skin is protected, not irritated, and is oil free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, and water resistant for 80 minutes.
He loves to play outside in the sun!
My son wears sunscreen all year round. We live in a warm climate region, the sun basically shines all year round. Mason is almost 3 years old and his favorite thing in the world is to run away from me anytime I tried to put lotion on him… This sunscreen by Aveeno comes in a stick, like solid deodorants, which he finds really interesting. It makes it possible for me to quickly swipe it across his face and arms and rub it in real quick, before he even thinks about running away. *evil laugh*
Aveeno’s Baby Natural Protection Face Stick protects really well (no sunburns whatsoever!), doesn’t irritate his skin and there’s no fragrance. It’s water resistant, which makes it great for those afternoons in the pool. Knowing that it doesn’t have harmful chemicals makes it even better!
Its size is very convenient: it doesn’t take much room in my purse and I love how cute the packaging is. The one thing I don’t like, is that it does go on white. If I don’t spread it out well, it leaves him looking very pale. 😀 It does get absorbed quickly.
Where to buy
You can find Baby Natural Protection Face Stick with SPF 50 (0.5 ounce) by Aveeno at most drugstores, mass retailers and grocery stores. It retails for around $9.99. Quick tip: on Amazon they sell it in a pack of 3, which is more affordable!
