First of all, can I just celebrate the fact that my boys are old enough to put sunscreen on themselves?! I made it! It’s almost as exciting as the first summer both of them knew how to swim. Who am I kidding? There is nothing more exciting than that -ha! It’s a milestone for them and a HUGE mommy-made-it milestone for me. No more darting-eyed, paranoid mommy freak next to the pool!
There is only one sunscreen my boys will wear, and if I run out of it, it makes putting on sunscreen brutal. I have been a longtime fan of Supergoop for myself because it’s lightweight, it isn’t greasy, and it’s void of controversial ingredients. Naturally my boys started using my spray sunscreen instead of the kid’s squeeze bottle I purchased for them. It’s a spray, and they’re boys, so I had no chance! Obviously it turned out well for me, as you can see by the pic, because they started to spray it on themselves! Plus, it didn’t sting my son’s sensitive skin like most other sunscreens! I also love that I can reapply the spray while they’re wet!!! While they’re wet!!! I don’t have to dry them off before applying another application. Then Supergoop asked me to consider sharing their products with my readers. Being a longtime fan it was a no brainer for me, so they sent me their new mousse try.
Now this is not the look of a child fussing over putting sunscreen on his face! How nice is that?! Usually I tell him to close his eyes and hold his breath while I spray the Supergoop Spray on his face. It always makes me a little nervous, because I’m afraid he’s going to accidentally breath or open his eyes, but it got the job done. Now we have a much better solution! Maybe a little too good of a solution…
I can already tell I’m going to have to regulate the mousse. Can you hear it? “Guys this is not a toy, that’s enough!” HAHAHA! Look how much fun they’re having?! Sure beats the alternative!This mousse is a hit!
Here are all the Supergoop products I own and how I use them.
I use their everyday sunscreen (pic below) mixed with my cc cream to thin out my cc cream (post here) when I know I’ll be in the sun a lot. I also carry a travel size of the everyday sunscreen in my purse to rub on my arms when I find myself in direct sun unexpectedly (restaurant patios, ball fields).
I use the spray (pic below) almost every day in the summer on myself and my boys. The best part about it is that you can reapply it when wet without first drying yourself off!
I’ve been using the Perk Up (pic below) as my lip and cheek color when I’m headed to work out. I know I will be using it all summer when I’m out by the pool or at the beach and need a little refresh or… perk up! I guess that’s why they named it that. Ha!
I use the Rosemary Misting Spray when I need to reapply my sunscreen to my face but want to take the grease off my face and get that cooling feeling. When I remember to put it in my bag, I’m a happy person.
The mousse is obviously become a family favorite! Ha!
Happy Summer, guys! Be sure to lather on the sunscreen! It’s anti-aging and potentially life saving!
Perfect timing! And I see your boys got their summer cuts! Cute.

Thanks, friend! I will be so sad when they don’t let us give them summer cuts anymore. I’m pretty sure there will be tears.
Thanks for sharing! I have been looking and trying so many different sunblock but haven’t found a good one. Do these products leave any white residue on the skin?!I learned that some sunscreens that contain active ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide will give those products a bluish white cast which My husband and son hate it…
Carly Lee says
I know for a fact the spray and the everyday pump does not leave a white residue. I haven’t used the mousse enough to feel comfortable giving you a definitive answer.
I never comment on blogs, but had to this time! I have had the hardest time with sunblocks for my boys. I ordered this the day you posted it and put it on my boys for the first time today for baseball camp. It’s awesome! It goes on smooth and light and has a wonderful smell that they loved! Thank you for sharing it!
