My Take on the Product
In trying out these products, I found them to be easy to use and that they covered the kids well. I especially liked the Sun Stick for use on the face as it simply rolled on and made getting into curved places around the nose and on the forehead a snap. The only issue that I had was in the fact that the product did tend to be a little more oily that some other sunscreen products. This was not a problem overall, just an observation.

The kids loved the smell (bubble gum) as well as the characters that were on the products as well.

Overall, some great products that will cover your children well this summer!
