Sunscreens: Beauty Junkees Team Picks Part 4

Which sunscreen should you use?

It’s summer, so inevitably we’ll be applying some sunscreen to either ourselves, or a member of our family or friends. With the HUGE variety of sunscreens out there, it’s tough to tell which one is the best. We warned against chemical additives but also warned against skin cancer. So what’s a gal (or guy) to do? I personally recommend Coppertone Waterbabies in 50. I have a 3 year old daughter so I use this on her and also on my face. (I don’t use sunscreen anywhere else.) I like it because it is waterproof, sweatproof, and at a 50 sunblock, you could be standing on top of the sun and probably not get burned. The other thing I like about it is that, being a sweater, it doesn’t burn my eyes when I sweat. (Which is also good to know for my 3 year old as well.)

Christy prefers Banana Boat in an SPF 4 as she tans easily and doesn’t burn often. For her kids though, she recommends a higher SPF and only and always a lotion. She mentioned that on a recent trip down South, she used a spray sunscreen on her kids. She said with it being windy, it was hard enough to make sure that her kids were evenly coated. And then, on top of that, they burned! She won’t ever use a spray again and I doubt I will either!

Lexi’s recommendation for sunscreen is Coppertone 30. She mentioned that she doesn’t usually go for the type that have the “coconut-y” smell as she feels like there’s probably more additives than good stuff in there and she’d rather not be applying that to her skin. She also mentioned Banana Boat Sport as well as an occasional alternative, but prefers the Coppertone brand.

    I’m with Hillary with the Waterbabies in 50. That is what I use for my 2 year old son so I always have it handy.
