What do you use for yourself and the kids during the summer? I'm trying to find the right one for me and the kids!

I use Off pretty much exclusively for bug spray - it's the only one that works for me, and the boys seem as attractive (and allergic) to bugs as I am. I had to use Deep Woods Off to keep the bugs off of me... I can go with the general type for the boys so far.

Sunscreen is kind of a mish mash of whatever I've picked up and has been on sale. I don't have any particular brands I look for.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

I try to use the natural ones, mostly California Baby. Occasionally when it's really bad I'll use Off for bug spray.

I use Neutrogena spf 100. I am extra pale and I burn like crazy. I only have to put it on Kate's nose, cheeks, and shoulders. She tans and I do not. As for bug spray I haven't used any on her yet.

~Thank you Claire for my beautiful siggy!~

We use off or cutter. I don't like the greasy stuff so I buy the dry. Dh and I use banana boat sunscreen, spf 30. We put Neutrogena sunscreen on Ethan because he is allergic to regular sunscreen. We use spf 50.
Thank you Claire1979!

sunscreen- California Baby on the face, generic spray sunscreen on the arms and legs when swimming

bug spray- Cutter only if they really need it. I don't think we have used it more than once.

I tan really easily but I use sunscreen pretty much ever time the sun is out. Since I work outside and get tons of exposure, I really try to be diligent about protecting my skin.
I use Neutrogena SPF 110 for my face and SPF 70 on the rest of my body.
I have Coppertone SPF for the girls and some generic brand.

We don't really need bug spray around here. Though, if/when we go camping I pick up whatever the store carries.
