After having reviewed the Tinted Sunscreen by SweetSation and being very pleased with that sunscreen, I was more than happy to accept a review of the SweetSation Kids sunscreen with a SPF30. It is a broad spectrum sunscreen that offers protection from UVA and UVB rays. It is water resistant for 80 minutes, which is about perfect for us because when we go to the community pool there is a break after every 50 minutes, so re-applying around the 2nd break is perfect or if we are going home and indoors we will just reapply when we plan to go back outside again.
There are several things I really like about this sunscreen. First off, it is a mineral sunscreen so the active ingredient is zinc oxide. Second is that is has no white traces which I have found is usually the case in many mineral sunscreens. Third is that is rubs in smoothly and easily and isn't a thick paste. My kids get annoyed if I have to rub too much to get the sunscreen worked in and that is not the case with this sunscreen. And finally, the natural light sweet chocolate is fun for the kids. The kids don't like when a sunscreen smells like medicine and I don't know what the natural item(s) in this product that give it the sweet scent, but I appreciate that there is no artificial fragrances, which I try to avoid for my daughter who gets eczema.
The picture below shows what color the sunscreen is when I put a dab on my arm, but I also put a dab on my arm by my wrist and rubbed it in. You can see it rubbed in without leaving a white film, it rubbed in clear.
