TruKid~Sunny Days SPF 30+ mineral sunscreen (Review & Giveaway)

I can not stress how important it is to protect your skin from sun exposure! I have a couple aunts who have suffered from sun damage on their faces and shoulders, due to exposing their skin to too much sun, with no protection. Apparently, my family has sensitive skin and we burn easily.

I was offered a 2oz tube of TruKid Sunny Days SPF 30+ mineral sunscreen for a review. 
I have three little ones and we recently got a kiddie pool. My kids have been spending a lot of time outside, so I must admit...I go through a lot of sunscreen! We have used this all over our bodies and concentrate on our shoulders and faces...since that is where we seem to get the most sun.

I really like TruKid sunscreen. It has a light citrus scent. It goes on white and rubs in nicely. It is kinda on the thicker side, compared to a lot of other brands and that is one reason I like it. Although it takes a bit longer to apply, it definitely spreads and covers a large area, using just a small amount.

A product that can protect my babies from getting burned is a product loved by this mama! My kids spend up to two hours in the sun, per day and have not had a sunburn at all this summer. I would recommend this product to all parents who want a effective, non-chemical product!

TruKid also has adult products, baby products and even children's hair and body products! After my first TruKid experience with their sunscreen, I really want to try their Children's hair and body products!
