Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Sprays ~ Review

Posted by Jenna | Monday, June 06, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I couldn't help but wonder if summer weather would ever find us. Now though, the temps have warmed up which means more time spent outdoors. In fact, with each day that passes it seems to get hotter and hotter. It's perfect weather for hanging out in the pool, boating on the lake...pretty much anywhere we can have fun in the water as a family. With all this extra time spent outdoors though, it also means we're in the sun a lot and increasing our skin's exposure to damaging UVA/UVB rays.

Since having children I've become even more aware of the harmful affects of the sun and do what I can to protect their delicate skin. Applying sunblock is a must whenever we're outdoors, and reapplying is just as important. In fact, The Skin Cancer Foundation states that 'reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as putting it on in the first place' and advises people to reapply every two hours! I will admit, that although I do reapply my own sunblock, as well as my's sometimes a difficult task when they're running around and don't want to stop, dry off and let me reapply their sunscreen. That's why I was thankful when introduced to Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock!

Neutrogena, the #1 dermatologist recommended suncare brand has a new Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray for adults and kids. When I learned I was going to have the opportunity to review their sprays, I couldn't have been happier. Would they really work as great as they claim?!

The answer is YES! First of all, I love that they are sprays. It's very easy to use and applies quickly and evenly. The kids no longer get impatient waiting for me to rub it in all over. YAY! Usually with sunblock I throw it in the beach bag with all our other things. In the past I've had leaks and spills, so I was curious if the Neutrogena sunblock spray would give the same result. Thankfully, it didn't! It actually has a locking top that keeps it from accidentally getting pushed and leaking all over our things. I love it!

Something else that makes this unique is that it can be applied directly to wet skin. Developed with an exclusive technology, The Wet Skin product cuts right through water, forming a protective barrier on skin and provides superior sun protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays. Once it's applied to wet (or dry) skin, it forms a breathable protective barrier that visibly repels water. Even after my kids have run through the sprinkler or stepped out of the pool, I can see the water bead up. It's a great indication that this sunscreen is really working and staying on the skin.

I absolutely love that it's waterproof, sweatproof...and can be applied right to wet skin. Now I'm able to apply my kids' sunblock after they've been swimming (or sweating) without having to dry them off first. The reapplication process is much easier on all of us thanks to this great feature! It's also hypoallergenic, oil free and PABA free.

The Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Sprays are available in SPF options 30, 50, 85 and an SPF 70 for kids. Visit Neutrogena to learn more about their sunblock products and when you buy online you will save $2 on all sunscreen products!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neutrogena and received sunscreen and other Neutrogena products as a thank you for my participation.
