Spring Fever Sponsor Spotlight #1 - Tru Kid

Our 1st amazing sponsor for the Spring Fever Giveaway Event is Tru Kid! I am sooo excited to be able to share this awesome company with you. Their products are amazing!!!
I received the Sunny Days Sport Sunscreen (SPF 30) and the Sunny Days Face & Body Stick (SPF 30). Both are water resistant for fun play in the sun! That's great for us, since we live in Florida, and spend most of our summer at the river or beach.
Here's some great info from their site about their company.

Our Mission

By providing quality products and education to our consumers, as well as a fun and exciting work environment to our staff, TruKid™ is what a company and its products should be: safe, fun and effective. The goal of TruKid™ is to encourage a healthy, well rounded lifestyle. TruKid: Our product is skincare, our business is healthy living™

Our Philosophy

We encourage kids to form healthy habits that last a lifetime. By combining all natural skincare with fun and education, TruKid™ cultivates a relationship between healthy habits and being a kid. In turn, our goal is that kids will grow up taking care of themselves, each other and their environment. From our Friendly Face Wash™ to our Funny Foot Cream™, families receive only the best in ingredients, attention and dedication to their well being.

What makes us different?

Differences are what make everyone special and stand out from the crowd. TruKid™ believes in being proud of who you are. We are a different sort of company and of course, proud of it! For starters, our products are uniquely created just for kids of all ages (there simply weren't enough healthy skincare products out there just for kids). Second, we are all natural and completely chemical free. But what sets us apart even more than our products, is our philosophy. TruKid™ strives to impact the world one healthy habit at a time. Through rhymes, songs, facts and more, we provide the tools your family can use to start forming healthy habits the fun way.

Why use TruKid™?

Well, besides the fact that we only use ingredients that are good for you, we spent a lot of time making our products just right! We encourage kids and their families alike to use our product line everyday. Everything from the lighter textures for quick and easy application to the great, cheerful scents that kids love; we made sure everything was kid approved. You have enough to worry about, let us help you teach your kids healthy skin care habits to last their lifetime.

 I was able to use both of these amazing products on myself and my son during our last river trip, and I really LOVE them!
The tube of sunscreen is nice and thick, but still goes on smooth and easy. I really like the face and body stick. When you have a squirmy toddler, they don't want to sit still while you rub sunscreen on their face. The stick is great for that... easy application, and you don't have to worry about it getting in their precious little eyes. Plus, there's no color like a zink stick. It glides on clear. I was very happy with how these worked. We were out in the sun by the river for 2 days straight, and neither of us got burned... not even close. We had great protection with these items! 
Another thing that's very important to me is the fact that this sunscreen is mineral based, with no chemicals! I'm so particular about what goes in and on my little guys body. We don't use mainstream sunscreens, nope, nope, nope. I'm glad to have found a safe sunscreen that is also water resistant too! We do re-apply through the day, but we are constantly playing in the water, so having something that will last a while, and not rinse right off is another major plus for me. As a tip, you are supposed to re-apply this sunscreen every 80 min, but if you're swimming a lot like us, you should re-apply every 40 min.
I would def recommend this brand to anyone! I think their products are fantastic, and their business practices are awesome too. What more could you ask for?
Here's my little man in action...

I guess he liked it huh? ;-)
