The first thing I noticed when I opened both the Face Stick and Natural Sunscreen was the scent. They have a faint citrus scent; I love it. They are the best smelling all-natural physical sunblock that we have used. At first I thought the stick circumference was too small, but when I started to apply it on my son's face, it was actually the perfect size. Both sunscreens are not greasy or sticky, and easy to spread. Additionally, the Face Stick glides on very well. As a physical sunscreen, the Sunny Days line offers protection from both UVA/UVB rays and there is no visible residue.
The Sunny Days line is water-resistant which is great since my son loves the water. As per the manufacturer recommendation, I reapply sunscreen every 80 minutes or so for maximum protection.

I couldn't wait to try TruKid™ products. I have read nothing but positive reviews about them. In addition to being made from certified organic ingredients and not containing any chemicals, their products worked well. My son runs away whenever I put sunscreen on his face. That was not the case the first time I tried the Face Stick. He didn't mind it at all; no squirming, no running away. Now, he uses the stick on himself, as you can see below. I still have to reapply, but I think he really enjoys the independence.
The price is higher than comparable products, but definitely worth it. These all-natural sunscreens smell great, have no visible residue, are made in the US, and offer broad spectrum protection. Did I mention smell great?

We have not had any safety issues with these products. Even when my son perspired, got water in his eyes, or rubbed his eyes, the sunscreen did not bother his eyes.
