Review and Giveaway-- KINeSYS Suncreen


Thanks to the Family Review Network and Kinesys, we were given the opportunity to test out The KINeSYS kids sunscreen products recently.

We happen to live in an area that gets little rain and cloudy days, but lots of sun ( a bit too much might I add?)and sunscreen is a must for my daughter each day as she heads off to school.

Not only do I worry about sunburns, but because she is exposed to the sun so much, I worry about long term effects on her skin. My boys I can control a bit more as far as sun exposure goes because they are home with me all day. But when we go to the park, shopping, walks and such, I do put on sunscreen on them, as well as myself---who needs more freckles??

It takes, on average 15 to 30 years for the damage to show up, so if your kids get sunburned at age 6, the damage won't be visible until they are 21 - 36 years of age. The damage shows up as wrinkles age spots or even cancer.

So I was happy to try out KINeSYS, and report on what I thought about their products. We received the 4 oz. Kids KINeSYS Spray-On Sunscreen, and the 1 oz. Girls KINeSYS Spray-On Sunscreen, in a very cute pink bottle. Both sunscreens are 30 SPF. I would not have minded a higher SPF though.The boys did their usual squirming when I told them it was time to put on their sunscreen as we were getting ready to go for a walk--but when I showed them the new orange spray bottle, they were cooperative and let me spray it on them. I have to say it was impressive how quickly it dried -- and their little arms and legs did not feel icky, sticky or slimy. I also used it and loved that it felt totally lightweight.Photobucket

My daughter used the Girls Sunscreen before leaving for school, and the Green Tea and Vanilla scent was awesome! Again it dried right away.

The Kineysis Kids Sunscreens are alcohol, oil, preservative, PABA and fragrance free. They are also colorant, nut, egg, paraben, gluten, nanoparticle, soya, sulphite and dairy-free. It protects against UVA and UVB rays when applied as directed, and they are water and sweat resistant.

My kids are happy with their new sunscreens, and mom is as well! Easy to put on my squirmers, delicious scent for my daughter, and protects their skin from sun damage-- all positives in my book!

I like the fact that these products have not been tested on animals and they are recyclable as well.

I love that in the kids sunscreen there are no preservatives, fragrances etc.

I was amazed at how many years after the sun exposure that the actual damage shows up on our skin!

Thanks

They use the highest quality recyclable materials for their packaging and non-aerosol pumps for their sprayers. KINeSYS products are never animal tested.

I love how eco-friendly the company is. They stand behind the green movement. In fact I learned that, KINeSYS made the commitment to purchase clean, emissions-free electricity generated by wind power to offset that used in our manufacturing process as well as our office. That is really impressive!

Love that they are water resistent...helps in the summer with hanging out by the water. I learned that sun damage doesn't show up for over 15 years so it is really important to make sure kids are covered. Thanks for the chance, justicecw@hotmail.com

I like that the bottles are in eye-popping colors that appeal to the kids. That really does make a difference in how receptive they are to the application.
