I Love This Sunscreen

Last month, I bemoaned the lifelong daily chore of applying sunscreen to my fair-skinned family and asked you to suggest your favorite brands. Now I have to rave about this fabulous product I’ve discovered, Shady Day Daily Sun Protection Wipes, SPF 30 (even though I am worried that they will sell out and I won’t be able to get them anymore). Each wipe is infused with water-resistant broad-spectrum sunscreen that has a lovely non-sunscreeny scent and doesn’t feel too greasy. Although I don’t know if the coverage they provide will be enough for a day at the beach or pool in direct sunlight, they are perfect for everyday use. One wipe is enough for my 6-year-old’s arms and legs and mine too (although I still use a sunscreen stick on her face). I haven’t found them in stores but I am willing to stock up online. In other news, the FDA has finally announced its plans to crack down on sunscreen labeling (the agency has been mulling it over for literally 30 years); next year, companies will no longer be able to use the terms waterproof, sweatproof, or sunblock. You’ve got no choice but to reapply, reapply, reapply.
