Sunscreens for Kids

My friend Stephanie has asked me to post about great sunscreens...and since I haven't seen the sun in many months, I feel a little out of the loop.  First of all, I have to say, that when it comes to kids, I am always going to go for the natural option.  For myself, I am more interested in what will blend in and not be shiny or greasy all day.  So for now, I am really just writing about kids, and if you need to put this stuff on, be prepared, it might make you look like your ready for a Kabuki debut.

Last summer, we used Burnout Sunscreen, which we picked up at a natural food store in Half Moon Bay, and the person selling it to me was a surfer, who said it really worked.  It did.  And it did rub in easily.  Check out its claims on their website.

I'm also a fan of Soleo, out of Australia...but it is a bit greasy.

Our friends Dewey and Stephanie who live in Santa Barbara and are always in the sun, sent me some Solar RX Sunblock, which I am going to try as soon as I get to the sun.  I am sure if they like it, it must be great. I am hoping to try it out over spring break, so I will let you know.

When in doubt, I look at Christy Coleman's site to see what she likes.  I think she's really smart, and I like what she links to.  She has a very informative list here.

Please let me know if you have something that works well for you.  We all need to know this stuff.
