Default New Mist Suntan Protection?

Has anyone out there tried the new mist on sun tan sprays? I think they have like a 45 protection. Seems so much better to mist rather then use a rub on, & no bottles to leak in our suitcases!

I've read about them but haven't tried it. I would think you'd have to have baby-smooth skin. I don't!

I have tried using them before but it seems harder to get good coverage. I am fair as are my family and the best sunscreen for us is Bullfrog 45.(it is in a grey bottle with a blue top) My kids don't really like it because it is an alchohol gel and they don't like the smell. The nice thing is it dries in seconds and gives great coverage so you don't have any of the white creamy lotion feeling. It does however smell like you are putting Vodka on!!!! We have a boat and are in the sun all summer and I go through tons of bottles. It is also waterproof and sweatproof. I have never burned with it except for a tiny spot that I missed in St. Martin!

Love, love, LOVE the new spray on sunscreen!

It is far less messy and offers great coverage. You might need to rub it around a little to make sure you get perfect coverage, but it drys quickly (like the Bullfrog for adults) and is faster.

My kids love it - we used the bullfrog brand last year. My boys spray it right on their scalps, as they have pretty short hair, and it helps immensely.
