Before we left for the zoo yesterday, I couldn't find our sunscreen. I thought I had checked everywhere ... well, I later found-out I checked everywhere except my purse. Maybe it's kinda weird to carry sunscreen in your purse, but not so weird if you live in AZ. And if you have a very fair-skinned, red-headed boy, sunscreen is a must-have ... at all times. Anyways, couldn't find the sunscreen, so on our way to the zoo we stopped at our local Super Wal-Mart to buy more sunscreen. I stood on the sunscreen isle, looked at SPF's, considered several brands & possibilities for about 15 minutes cause my Turkey has funny reactions to sunscreen.
I ended up selecting a spray-on sunscreen cause they're quick & easy to apply. And then I saw this:
It was about $11 for a relatively small tube of sunscreen, but it looked like a good product and I can't really put a price tag on that soft baby skin esp when he's got parents that are prone to lots of moles, freckles & skin cancer runs in his genes. I grabbed it & we were off to the zoo.
Today, this is what Turkey looked like when he woke up:
Do you see those cherry red cheeks? That's not a sunburn! That's a reaction to the "face" sunscreen. You better believe that stuff went right back to Wal-Mart today! And when the lady in customer service asked if it had been opened & used, my hubby said, "Yup, only once," while pointing to Turkey's face.
So, I'm not sure what does this to his face, but every sunscreen I've tried except Nu-Skin's Sunright does this. The only stuff that sold in stores that isn't quite is bad is Trader Joe's sunscreen. Any ideas?
