One of the ways I get to try out products for free is through BuzzAgent. I love the programs and great products I've gotten to review. Love that they ship to Alaska and Fred Meyer is one of the retailers in the program. Coppertone CLEARLYSheer sunscreen is one of the best products I've gotten to try through the program.
But I digress....
I was lucky enough to sample Coppertone CLEARLYSheer sunscreen. I did my first test drive when I planted all my seedlings in the garden. It was such a sunny and beautiful day!
I used the spray on for my 4 year old daughter. She thought it was cool that I was spraying it on. I liked that I didn't have to to squirt on my hand, mash it around in my hand, and then apply. It worked very well on her very fair, 1/2 Norwegian skin!
I opted for the tradition lotion kind. It smelled so good. It didn't have a chemical scent like some other sunscreens. It was such a pleasant smell, but not overhelming. It felt great on my limbs and neck.
Now, usually, I skip putting sunscreen on my face. All sunscreens I have ever tried have made my face burn and sting. I'd rather wear a hat and deal with a little burn on my face. Since this lotion felt so light on my arms and I wanted to truly test this product, I went ahead and used it on my face. I am happy to say that it didn't sting my face at all, even when I was in the sun and sweating. That to me is a small miracle. I mean, I've tried almost everything for my face for sun protection, including baby sunscreen in various forms.
The only thing I do not like about this sunscreen is that I doubt its waterproof protection. When I was sweating, it ran down into my eyes and it stung A LOT. I was not happy with this. I wish it had not run so much. I don't I would recommend this lotion for children' faces for this reason.
I've used this sunscreen on myself for every outside event I have gone too. Usually I get freckles on my face in the summer when I have been in the sun. So far, I have no new freckles!
I recommend you always stay protected from the sun. It is not worth the risk of skin cancer cause you want to get bronzed or you just forgot your sunscreen. If you want a nice, pleasant, light weight, and effective sunscreen, try Coppertone CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen.
Coppertone Makes the following claims about this product and I find all of them to be true!
If they could make this product to include mosquito repellent that smelled good and was still light weight, it would be perfect for Alaskans!
I am hoping Carrs will have these during $5 Friday again soon. I want to make sure I am stocked up for the rest of the summer.
