Sunscreen has made some major improvements in the past 10 years. It’s wonderful to have wide spectrum, oil free and even spray on sunscreen. However, I was particularly thrilled to try out a new sunscreen product from MD Moms - Baby Silk Sunscreen Towelettes! What a smart idea! These towelettes are saturated with a sweat-proof, broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen. Each wipe contains enough sunscreen to cover a few kids from head to toe.
The very first time I used the towelettes, I took my two children, ages 4 and two, to our neighborhood pool. We live in Atlanta where the sun beats down all day long. I was a bit nervous using it for fear if it failed, I would have two very sunburned children. I loved that the towelettes are really soft and truly laden with sunscreen. Each wipe promises enough sunscreen to cover a child from head to toe and you better believe it! In fact, I used that first towelette on the face of my son, my daughter and myself. I was disappointed that there were not more people to wipe it all over. The smell was wonderful: light and fresh. I found that my children were thrilled I was wiping something soft on their face instead of awkwardly trying to rub a giant glob of sunscreen into their skin while avoiding their eyes. With each swipe of the towelette, I saw the sunscreen on my children’s skin.
Throughout the day, I watched carefully to make sure that the sunscreen from the towelettes were doing what had been promised. As the kids jumped into the pool, I noticed the water beading up on their skin and falling away. After almost an hour in the pool, we took a break. As the kids dried off, I inspected them to find out if the sunscreen had remained. To my pleasant surprise, there was still a solid covering on their skin that was visible.
I wanted to recover the kids with another round of sunscreen before jumping back into the pool to be sure they were adequately covered. I assumed that I would have to get another wipe. Surprisingly, the first towelette I had used still had another round of sunscreen in it. As a typical wipe, however, it does dry out if left out for too long.
The pack of sunscreen towelettes only has 15 wipes in a pack which really doesn’t seem enough considering that each pack costs $26 (Buy it on Amazon). I wish that I loved the price as much as I love the product. Regardless, my children love the wipes as much as I do. Both the 4 year old and the two year old can easily use them on themselves. They know how to remove the towelettes from the packaging, re-seal the package, and apply the sunscreen. I love products that allow my kids the opportunity to take care of themselves.
I am not looking forward to the day when my pack of wipes is empty. I love that these towelettes are packaged conveniently and that the sunscreen does in fact cover and protect. I would recommend this product to anyone, but especially for use with kids.
