Stay Cool Under the Heat

By 

from Williamsburg, VA

Comments about Desert Essence Sunscreen Towelettes SPF 30:

When it is spring or summer, you know that the weather temperature is going to be high. You will be hot in your house or wherever you go. If you do go to the beach or somewhere in public, you should purchase this sunscreen towelette. It will keep you cool and protect you from getting overheated. You will need to keep your skin safe and from getting sunburned. It is also so good to have so that you do not have to keep going to a place where it is cool or shady.

Just think. It is summer and I may want to go to a nearby beach on my day off work. While the sun emerges and shines right in front of my face and even if it gets intense, I would immediately use the towelette to cover or spread around my body. I should move to an area that the sun does not shine as much because if I stay where I am, my body may get worsened. If something is affecting you, you should flee away from it even if you do use something to protect you. Does that make sense to you?

Great product...very convenient.

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Desert Essence Sunscreen Towelettes SPF 30:

I initially bought this product to keep in the carand or diaper bag for those times when the family is out and about and needed sunscreen.  We live in Texas, so the sun is very strong and I have a newborn baby.  I was very impressed with the product.  It isn't sticky and the scent is nice.  THe only downside is the price.  You definitely pay a premium for the convenience aspect, but in the end, it's a really good product. 

Our family is going on an airplane trip in the coming week and we plan on taking these sunscreen wipes with us, as we are limited to the number of liquids we can pack (we don't check bags so this is a big concern).

We haven't been swimming, but I'm curious to see if it can hold up in water environments.  I believe the packaging says something about a time limit, but I can't recall for sure.

In a nutshell:

Great product, but a little pricey for the "per use."  Very convenient and easy to use.  Not sticky or heavy like typical sunscreen.  Not overly scented.

smooth to the skin

By 

from Meriden, CT

Comments about Desert Essence Sunscreen Towelettes SPF 30:

I have enjoyed using this product because of its smooth feel to the skin. Most of the other sunscreen products I use including the so called SP factors lotions have not shown to be as smooth as this product. I would always use oil base lotions like simple baby oil or vaseline products to coat my skin before using any other product. At the end of the day, I still get burnt so bad on really hot days. One thing I found about this product is that I never have to use any base oil for initial coating. It does wonders. My kids love using it because of the friendly fragrance.

I am hoping to try other products in the future but for now, am stuck with loving the dessert essence. My recent travel to Arizona made all the difference. my skin that will normally flake and show cracks especially on my back was not impacted at all the first time I used the product there. Ever since I discovered this product, I enjoy having to hang out in the sun more without looking for shed every so often. I will most definately recommend this product to anybody who wants to enjoy bake, flip and bake.

Desert Essence Towlettes for healthy skin!

By 

from Coahoma, TX

Comments about Desert Essence Sunscreen Towelettes SPF 30:

This product is amazing. Not only does it minimize the application of harmful sunscreen to the eyes, it is quick and easy. I am a frequent outdoor person in the summertime when the sun does the most damage. I use to hate taking the time to apply sunscreen because it was taking time away from me on the the water. Now, all I have to do is grab a Desert Essence towlette and with a quick rub down I am ready to hit the water for some fun in the sun. I love this product because it drys quickly and doesn't harm our enviornment like the new arresole sprays do. As I said before, I love being on the water in the summertime. I am an avid jet skier and if you are doing it right, you are in the water alot. I noticed little difference in my protection with Desert Essence towlette's than with the thick greasy regular sunscreens. Of course you have to reapply, but it is so easy, that you don't mind. Thanks so much for such a great product in Desert Essence sunscreen towlettes!

Great idea but needs better packaging

By 

from Arlington, TX

Comments about Desert Essence Sunscreen Towelettes SPF 30:

I saw this product at the store and liked the concept - thought I'd give it a try.  I don't really like the thick, goopy suncrean lotions or oily sprays, so was hoping this would be a good alternative.  The towelettes don't go very far, so you have to use several if you need to cover a significant amount of your body.  A few months later I went back to use the product again, and the towelettes had dried out and were useless. 

 This would be a good product if you plan or expect to use all the towelettes within a few days.
