So Tabitha has like the worlds most sensitive skin. Seriously, I thought I had super sensitive skin but hers is way worse. Poor girl. She also takes after Morgen in that she burns very easily. She has to wear sunscreen all year long, although really everyone should wear sunscreen all year long. Even in the snow you can get a sun burn. And Poor Tabitha sunburns quickly. Put those two together, and it makes for an interesting time finding a sunscreen she isn't allergic to and that works, add to that I don't want her using any sunscreen with avobenzone, and its even harder! I have found one that I like but its been almost impossible to get it because everyone wants it. So I went looking for more sunscreens that were safe, and she wasn't allergic to. In my search I stumbled upon Trukid.

I've been using TruKid Sunny Days SPF30+ face and body stick, the TruBaby Everyday play SPF 30+ mineral sunscreen (no Vitamin A) and the TruVillage SafeSun naturals sunscreen lotion SPF30+ since this weekend. I have to say I love it! I use the TruKid Sunny Days Stick on my forehead every morning before I go on my daily walk and I have noticed a marked improvement over using the store brand sunscreen I was using on myself. I use the Sunny Days stick on Tabitha's face because its so easy to swipe on and rub in and I can get it done with minimal fuss from her. I use the TruBaby Everyday Play on any other parts of her body not covered by clothes, then I put them both in her backpack for school. She has to bring her own to school since she is allergic to the kind they use at school. Tabitha is doing great with the TruBaby and Trukid sunscreen. Her skin looks great and she's not getting burned, two big pluses from me! I love the way the TruVillage sunscreen feels, it doesn't feel like I've got a bunch of junk caked on my skin like a lot of other sunscreens do, and it works!
TruKid has a ton of products for your everyday needs, from shampoo and conditioner to hand wash, body wash, sunscreen, detangler, body lotion, face wash, Children's hero stick ( a healing balm), to a baby line and a skincare line for adults. I am now a big fan of TruKid and will be buying this sunscreen and probably some more of their products for the girls in the future.
