I spent an inordinate amount of time researching sunscreens this summer, and finally decided to try TruKid, based on the EWG guide and reviews. It's such an improvement over similar types of "safe" sunscreens. It goes on much smoother, it's not sticky or tacky, and the white haze disappears easily once it's rubbed in or once a little time has passed. (My 3-year-old does NOT sit still for me to rub it in, so usually I just slather it on her and wait for the whiteness to fade-- which it does, pretty quickly.)
Each of the other "safe" sunscreens I tried or read about had some kind of downside-- usually regarding the whiteness, the consistency, the difficulty rubbing it in, that it stained clothes, or the scent. I can't find a downside to this one except the price, which is on the high side for the amount of sunscreen you get.
It's true that this is a very small tube-- about the size of a wide toothpaste tube-- and you're instructed to use a "handful" of it each time you apply, so don't expect it to last the whole summer. It's a handy size to keep in a pocketbook, though. When I reorder, I'll order the two-pack.
Because the order was filled by the company, it also arrived with samples of their shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. A nice touch!
