Blue Lizard Sunscreen - Another Highly Recommended Sunscreen

S.A.F.E. Product Review
Here is yet another sunscreen which as been highly recommended for those with sensitive skin.  It is CHEMICAL-FREE AND FRAGRANCE-FREE.

Through experience with my own children,  I am well aware of how certain topically applied creams, lotions, and/or sunscreens can aggravate sensitive skin.  As an infant, my youngest child, whose allergies were compounded by unbelievable skin sensitivities, had a horrible reaction to sunscreen which resulted in both of his legs being completely covered in eczema-like rashes.

I have received so much positive feedback about this particular product from other allergy families, that I wanted to share the suggestion. You all can try it out, IF you can find it, and let me know your thoughts!

I know how popular this brand is because last year there was a period you couldn't even order it on-line as it was out of stock.  Can't help but think the advise I have been given is right on!  I'd order some now before it's too late again.

If you find this stuff and try it, please tell me your thoughts!
