COPPERTONE SPRAY

I am a HUGE fan of the Coppertone Continuous Spray sunscreens. I have very fair skin and my son is just like me. Every time we go out in the sun I spray both of us down and it is so quick and easy. It works well too. I am considering using the Spray Lotions (instead of the clear) because you can see exactly where the sunscreen is going and then quickly rub it in. I love the clear and that you don't have to rub it, but sometimes I don't get my son covered very well. I will use the clear for shorter time frames and the Lotion for long days out at the pool, zoo, theme park, etc. I am excited to try the new oil free version too!

I LOVE this for Paityn, I just wish they had oil-free for babies, and kids!

I love this spray too! My daughter and I are extremely fair. Not only is Coppertone great when it comes to protection, but it also makes going outside quick and easy!

I have to admit that I love the convenience of the spray but wondered if it really could be as good as those thick lotions you lather on with much more effort. Sure enough, mine was not protecting against both UVA and UVB rays. It has to say "broad spectrum" on it or it is basically doing you no good as it is usually not protecting against the longer-term damage rays. It is only protecting you agains sun burns.

Not sure if it was only the particular one I was using or if is the case for all, but it is worth looking into. I have greatly missed the convenince of the spray, but our health is obviously a higher concern.

Thanks, Natalie. I appreciate your comment. Coppertone does have a broad spectrum spray on now. I definitely plan to try it out! Let us know if you do.
