KINeSYS Performance Sunscreen: Review & GIVEAWAY UPDATED!!!!

I have always had very sun sensitive skin, and for the last ten years or so, I have been very aware of how much time I spend in the sun. I also make sure to protect my skin, whether its staying covered up, wearing a hat, and especially wearing sunscreen. This is especially important to be now, being a skin cancer survivor.

Recently, through Mom Relations, I had the opportunity to work with KINeSYS Sunscreen.

My Review:

I have extremely sensitive skin, as do my girls, so when it comes to skin products, we tend to stick to ones that we are familiar with, knowing they will not bother our skin. I had heard of KINeSYS Sunscreen Protection, but had never used it. When approached to try it out, I did alot of research and decided that it would probably not bother our skin. It has not and I LOVE IT!

I love that it is non-greasy, fragrance free and over all a very environmentally friendly product. It is so easy to apply that even my 3.5 year old can put it on and I know that she is protected from the sun! Of course, I make sure she hasn't missed any major spots, but for the most part the spray function is ideal for preschools to maintain their need for independence.

Obviously, the most positive thing about KINeSYS is that it had not caused any reactions to the skin of myself and my children. This is of utmost importance when I look for skin care products for us. Also, I love that KINeSYS sprays evenly and that you get a good amount of product in such small (compact for outings for sure!) containers. The 1oz bottle will give you about 170 sprays, while the 4oz bottle will provide about 700 sprays!

If you are looking for an economical, environmentally friendly sun protection product for your ENTIRE family (they not only carry children's products, but also ones for adults), I highly recommend KINeSYS Sun Protection products.
