Sun and Sparkly Fun at the Pool! Neutrogena #WetSkin…No Burns, No Fuss! #CBias

Have I mentioned I live on an island?  Of course I have (stop rolling your eyes! I know I rub it in all of the time…you would too).  This means my family spends a lot of time in the sun!  We go to the beach, ride bikes, go to the park, go fishing, take walks on the seawall, and ride around with the top down…all in the hot island sun!  That’s what islanders do!

The babies love all of these activities, but their absolute favorite is enjoying a day at the pool, playing, swimming, cooking out, and splashing…lots of splashing!

So what was on the agenda this past weekend?  DUH (you haven’t been following along nicely again have you?)….a day at the pool.  It is their favorite after all!

With all of this said, I worry about the babies’ skin!  I don’t worry about mine enough and never have so perhaps that’s why I worry about theirs so much!  Bubby is a pasty white little blond haired, blue eyed boy that burns like his Daddy.  Bug tans like me, but I don’t want her to suffer later in life due to overexposure to the sun.  I was almost out of sunblock and knowing we’d spend the entire weekend in the sun, I had to get more.  

A friend of mine suggested Neutrogena Wet Skin.  I’d never heard of it before so I looked it up and found that they are currently offering a $2.00 off coupon at Neutrogena.  While poking around the site, I read that the Wet Skin product line (as well as some of their other sunblock products) utilizes a technology called Helioplex which is a complete UVA-UVB blocker exclusive to Johnson & Johnson in the U.S.   It also claims to have full strength protection even on wet skin.  Oh yea?  We’ll just see about that!

I headed to Walmart and after looking around, we ended up selecting the Neutrogena Wet Skin Kids 70+ Waterproof Sunblock and some other items to enjoy our day at the pool.  You can view our entire shopping experience here if you’d like.  We were ready for a full day at the pool!  Yes, this would be fun!

We loaded up the cooler with some food and drinks and the babies led the way to the pool! 

Dad always gets the “fun” job of putting on the sunblock either before we leave the apartment or as soon as we get to the pool or beach.  It’s not their favorite thing as you can see, but it is necessary!  And the spray on application of the Neutrogena Wet Skin really did make it quicker and easier which left more time for play! 
There was swimming, and splashing, and jumping!
 There was cooking, and eating, and full happy tummies!

But most important of all?  There were smiles, and giggles, and there was together time!  We had a fabulously sparkly day at the pool as a family and memories like that are priceless!  And not a single sunburn for a change….ding ding ding ding…winner!

I have been won over by this Neutrogena Wet Skin product in all honesty.  Whether the kids were sweaty (as always) or wet from the pool, this stuff wasn’t all white, and runny, and ooey gooey!  And honestly, I didn’t have to reapply often.  I watched for the “sunburn through sunblock Bubby syndrome” but it didn’t happen!  How awesome is that?

You can see our entire day in pictures/video if you’d like (of course you would, who wouldn’t want to watch my crazy family in action?).  Just kick back, click the play button below, and laugh along with us!  Oh and did I mention it’s like this at least 10 months of the year?  (Yes, I’m rubbing it in again…stop rolling your eyes!  You would too!)
