  • Yeah I was going to say use the stick stuff too... she's right it's good stuff, and works like a charm!

  • Get the stick- it looks like a gluestick. I use it for all my kids' faces.

  • I use the spray because it dries quickly. I spray it on my hand and quickly wipe it on their face. It dries too quickly for them to rub it in their eyes.

  • I use the spray... (like PP said) Put it on your hands & rub it on their face with 1-2 quick swipes. I try to avoid putting any sunscreen on my son's hands so he doesn't rub it in his eyes.
