Coppertone Kids QuickCover Sunscreen Lotion Spray

We burn. My family, that is. With the exception of my olivey-red skinned husband and eldest son, we burn, blister, and peel within minutes of being outside. I specifically get toasted along the part of my hair right down my scalp. I get little red bumps that itch, burn, and sting. And I don't always like wearing a really lame hat.

So I looked into sunscreens for my head. And that led me to the world of aerosol spray lotions and sunscreens. And then out of the blue, I get invited to join a Bzzcampaign to review new Coppertone Kids QuickCover Lotion Spray! Perfect timing!

So I spray it on my head. It comes out nicely in a very fine mist. But, remember, kids that this is lotion. So you need to kind of rub it in a bit. (And on hair that can be difficult.) I spray it on my arms and neck, the kids' legs and tops of their ears. It's kind of fun, and I have to force myself to stop spraying.

2 hours later we are chopping away at the weeds in the garden, and I start to wonder why my scalp doesn't feel like it's 105 degrees F. The Lotion works! An SPF of 50, it protected me against UVA and UVB Rays. It was waterproof, so it didn't drip all over after I put it on. And it did finally absorb, so I wasn't left with the icky white speckles that first came out of the bottle. All-in-all I would say it was a success!

At almost $10 a bottle, it is a little pricey. But, my kids sat still while I sprayed it on, and since it really required very little rubbing in, I felt that it was a very convenient way to get myself and my kids protected!

Oh, and the best thing:
The cap actually twists to a "lock" position. I love this, since my boys love spraying everything all over the house: hairspray, AXE deoderant bodyspray, you name it. And I don't have to worry about it getting all over the inside of our diaper bag.
