Walgreens Baby Pure and Gentle - High effectiveness and Low Cost! A Sunscreen Stick to brag about...

With spring quickly upon us, the sun is brilliantly shining for more hours a day and the kids are spending more time outside.  

And how about that sun?!  I find when outdoors, especially in the mountains, I sometimes don't realize how much sun exposure our faces are getting.  I am more diligent with my kids than I ever was with myself when it comes to putting on some sunscreen.  It must be those hard earned, East Coast shore wrinkles I have reminding me! 


S.A.F.E. Product Review

I prefer stick sunscreen for my kid's faces over any liquid sunscreen.  Personally, I find the liquid sunscreens sting like crazy when they run into my eyes when I jump into a pool or sweat.  I need a product my kids are willing to put on NOT one which creates a fight.

Walgreens BABY Pure & Gentle, Oil-Free Sunscreen Stick, SPF 60+, distributed by Walgreens.

Ingredients include:  ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:  Titanium Dioxide - 6 % , Zinc Oxide - 4.7 %
INACTIVE INGREDIENTS:  Aluminum Hydroxide , Beeswax , BHT , Butyloctyl Salicylate , C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate , Cetyl Alcohol , Dimethicone , Euphorbia Cerifera Wax (Candelilla) , Isostearic Acid , Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate , Ozokerite , Paraffin , Polyethylene , Stearic Acid, Triethoxycaprylylsilane.

You can also go to their customer service page and there are a variety of contact numbers depending on your needs.

You can purchase this on-line or in any of their stores. 

It takes a bit of rubbing in to get rid of the ghostly look caused by the zinc. At the same time, one can quickly see what parts are covered or aren't!  This makes it easy for my kids to take charge of putting on their own sunscreen, as well as mine.  They get a good laugh at how we all look while unknowingly doing a great job at protecting their precious skin!
