Last Pool Day of Summer with Neutrogena Wet Skin

School started this week, so we decided to spend our last summer afternoon at grandma and grandpa's pool. We've been there a lot this season but the last month or so has been ridiculously hot, with temperatures well over 100ยบ so we've been waiting until late in the day to go swimming. Thankfully, it's eased up a little bit and we wanted to make the most of it. I was asked to try a new sunscreen, Neutrogena Wet Skin, so this seemed like a great time to test it out.

I've been a Neutrogena user since I was a little kid. My grandmother was a big fan of their Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and Rainbath and I remember going through an awful lot of the Facial Cleansing Bars during my teen years. I liked the simplicity and clean feeling of their products and the "dermatologist recommended" tagline always seemed reassuring. I hadn't tried Neutrogena Wet Skin yet but it sounded good: sunscreen specially developed to be used on wet skin without losing potency or causing a white residue or dripping into your eyes. Neutrogena Wet Skin also features Helioplex technology, meaning it has been specifically engineered to deliver superior UV protection that is broad spectrum and photostable– both important considerations when you're planning to be out in the sun. Where was this when I was a kid?! (See my story on Intersect for more on my shopping experience.)

We live a block away from my parents. Some may say it's too close but I think it's awfully convenient, especially when it's summertime and we can use their pool… it's really nice to be able to walk over with the kids. Jasper has been wanting to ride his bike over lately. He's quite the speed demon. Roo prefers terra firma.

Just so you know, our yard looks nothing like this. But neither does our water bill, since we don't have a sprinkler system…

The kids LOVE using the spray sunscreen and actually do a pretty thorough job. It's really great to be able to use this on dry skin and on wet skin… like when the kids go into the pool immediately before you realize that they don't have sunscreen on and you need to douse them!

Can your sunscreen go in and out of the water?

  1. I'm a big fan of Neutrogena Wet Skin sunscreen. Annika wore it all summer for camp. It is easy to apply, lasts quite a while, and when applied to face (I spray it on my hand first) does not run into the eyes. The sprays are so much easier to deal with than the gloopy lotions. As added bonus, I've collected several free Neutrogena lip balms that were complimentary with the sunscreen.

  2. Those are some great pictures and it looks like the kids had a fun day!

  3. Great post. I love the product - it's a great idea. Love the underwater photo.

  4. What great pics!
    We love wetskin too, it makes it so much easier when you have a bunch of kids getting in and out of the water all day long :)

  5. I think it's awesome that your kids are learning to apply sunscreen themselves. I definitely need to get some of this for the days when we go to the pool or play in the water. Great photos!

  6. What a great and safe way to spend the waining days of summer.

  7. Wow! I live close to my parents too but unfortunately they do not have a pool.

  8. I love the underwater shots. Great pool!

  9. Great post and I wish I had a pool like this or even knew someone who did where I could go swimming. I also Love this blog clowns are my favorite.
