So, its only the middle of june and already hate sunscreen! no matter how careful I am ONE of my 15mon. old twin boys rubs it in their eyes! The bottle says "tear free" but is it?! no! I hate it! then they get red puffy eyes and i feel so bad. I wash it with a cool rag but it doesnt seem to help. Anyone have the same problem or any cure for this not to happen?

I only use the spray kind, it dries so much faster then the lotion. The lotion seems to get in their eyes cause its all over them still wet, unless you rub forever lol. For face just spray on your hands on put on their face.

Try holding a dry cloth over their eyes while applying to the face. Also, don't put any on the backs for their hands as they probably rub with the back of the hand and get it in the eyes. Don't let them do it themselves. My son is 2.5yrs old and he has never put it on himself, he knows how and wants to but i don't allow him. He can in another year or 2.

Hi! We never use the spray kind. The lotion kind is a little easier to get on their faces. We also don't put it on the backs of their hands...since that's usually what they use to rub their eyes :)
