KINeSYS Performance Sunscreen {Review & Giveaway} ARV $38

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

My husband often jokes that when Big Sister E is playing in the bathtub that she blends right in with the white porcelain. Of course she's not that pale, but she does have extremely light skin and I have always been vigilant about protecting it from the sun when we go out, whether to play or swim or just for a walk.

At some point in our talks she must have understood the importance of sunscreen, because now it seems that she is the one to remind me (over and over) that she needs it when we are heading outside. Does that mean that she wants to stand still and let me grease her all up with traditional sunscreen, though? Not so much.

Life has gotten a little easier around here (just in time for the warmer weather) now that we can use the no-mess, quick-drying, Dermatologist and Pediatrician recommended Kids SPF 30 Alcohol Free Sunscreen Spray from KINeSYS.


There are so many great features of KINeSYS Sunscreens that come together to make this a really great product to use with kids. The light mist of the fragrance-free spray feels soft and clean and requires no rubbing while not leaving any residue behind. I love knowing that by quickly and easily spritzing both of my girls that they will receive broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection without any oil, alcohol or preservatives. And why would I put any of those things on their sweet, soft skin?

Now, instead of impatience and complaining, I can easily pull out the KINeSYS Kids SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray and have both Big Sister E and Little Sister B covered in moments. For their faces or ears, I simply spray a few times on my hands and transfer the protection to those sensitive areas by lightly rubbing it directly on. Plus, as KINeSYS Sunscreens are water and sweat-resistant, I don't have to worry about reapplying nearly as often as I have with previous brands that we've used in the past.

As well as the KINeSYS Kids Sunscreen that has been working great for my daughters, I was able to try the original SPF 30 Alcohol Free Sunscreen Spray in the convenient 1 ounce container. The perfect size for a diaper bag, glove compartment or just in a pocket, this sunscreen has all of the same wonderful features as the version for kids but with a refreshingly pleasant mango scent.

With the ease of the spray and that it is oil-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, I don't have a problem using KINeSYS Sunscreen on my body or face because it doesn't leave me greasy or sticky and won't clog my pores. After having used both of these products, it's no wonder to me that KINeSYS has won a multitude of awards and has been praised in newspapers, magazines and throughout the internet.

As well as selling safe and innovative products, there is a long list of reasons why KINeSYS is a wonderful company to support. Their love for the planet has led them to be green throughout their entire production process. The handy spray bottles use non-pressurized aerosol pumps, recycled and recyclable packaging, soy-based inks and are even Carbon Neutral due to KINeSYS purchasing carbon offsets. They are cruelty-free, vegan and a Certified B Corporation, a true demonstration of their social and environmental dedication.

With the sunshine and warm weather finally arriving, now is the time to prepare for spending time outdoors and protecting your skin from the harmful rays. Knowing that KINeSYS not only cares about the health and safety of my family but also that of the earth is a bonus to using their quick, easy and high quality products. Also, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared for the summer sun, because...

One lucky person will win 1 Kids SPF 30 Alcohol free sunscreen spray (4 oz) AND 1 Hydrating Moisturizer with SPF 15 (4 oz)! ARV $38!
