Review: California Baby Sunscreen and Bug Repellant
July 14, 2015 5:49 pm | by



Summer is here, and you know what that means! Ample time to enjoy all kinds of fun outdoor activities: hiking, swimming, watching fireworks, attending parties, picnics, and summer camp, and of course, plenty of unstructured outdoor play! Using sunscreen on a daily basis is SO important to protect your family’s skin from sun damage. But it’s also SO important to me to use a product without a lot of chemicals, so it’s safe for skin in other ways. We protect our skin with California Baby Sunblock, which provides UVA/UVB protection, is PABA-free and hypoallergenic. The mineral-based lotion is super thick, provides great coverage, and is very water-resistant. California Baby Sunscreen comes in fragrance-free, summer blend, year-round/everyday use, and sensitive skin varieties.

The California Baby Sunscreen Stick is handy as well. It allows me to control application on my little kids’ faces without worrying that it’ll get in their eyes. I MUCH prefer this over aerosol sunscreen that you spray onto their skin. I used to always worry about them breathing it in or getting it in their eyes. (I used to shout “SHUT YOUR EYES AND MOUTH AND DON’T BREATHE!” when spraying them with a huge cloud of chemicals. How’s that for summer fun?!) It’s also convenient for applying on scars (my son’s), tattoos (my husband’s) and my squirmy toddler who never wants to stay still.

California Baby Natural Bug Blend Bug Repellant is a great product too! We have had an unusually wet spring and summer, and we all know what that means: mosquitoes everywhere! I want to combat this problem as naturally as possible. Conventional bug spray smells awful and can be toxic! But California Baby Bug Repellant is made of a combination of natural bug repellants: citronella, lemongrass, and cedar essential oils. It keeps the bugs away and actually smells kind of nice!

California Baby products are conveniently sized and don’t take up a lot of room in your purse or diaper bag. All products are allergy-tested (so it’s safe for those with food allergies). They are manufactured in the USA, and are not tested on animals.
