Since having Luke I find that I’m much more conscientious about my purchase decisions. Particularly when it pertains to my son. One of those purchase items that recently came under my scrutiny is sunscreen. There are so many sunscreens out there marketed towards moms so it can easily be confusing. After much research I decided to try a sunscreen that had received many awards across a variety of media outlets. Additionally, it had a lot of ingredients that I wanted to see in sunscreen as well as did NOT have those nasty chemical ingredients that I didn’t want on my child’s skin. That sunscreen is California Baby! California Baby is unfragranced, PABA free, contains organic and sustainably grown ingredients, UVA/UVB protection, water resistent, non-chemical and hypoallergenic. The sunscreen has won many awards including WebMD’s Baby Care Products Expert Choice Award, Parent’s Magazine’s Mom Knows Best Award, Babble.com pick for Best Sunscreens, and more. I also really like it because it doesn’t require lots and lots of reapplications. In fact, I gave Luke one application and then we went an entire day at SeaWorld and he didn’t get a bit of sun!

Gotta love a bargain! Enamel rings are great for water activities because it doesn’t damage them. This is Luke (in hat) and his friend, James. It cracks me up to watch them together but I swear they look exactly like their daddies! Do you have a sunscreen that you recommend? What other purchasing decisions for your children are important to you? This is my sTORI being written as you read. – Love, Mommy Tori 7 Responses April @ illistyle 07/04/2012 Found you via a pinterest post of your sweet tea mojito. Saw this post and I totally agree – <3 everything California Baby. Also, I adore RedinFred! I bought a desk form them a few years ago (I am a California girl.) They were great and even gave free shipping. <3 them! and I think you are adorable. xoxo Reply torijohnson5 07/04/2012 Hello April! I can’t thank you enough for your sweet comment! Red is completely amazing! I actually did a full post on them not too long ago (http://thestoribook.com/2012/06/02/red-in-fred-uber-cool-home-design-store/). I just visited your blog and love it! It’s beautiful! You definitely have a new fan! Reply Ana Gaby 07/04/2012 I always use california baby on the boys. Every time I go back to the US I stock up! Reply torijohnson5 07/04/2012 Hi Ana! So good to hear! Have you tried any of their other products? If so, what else do you like? Reply Ana Gaby 07/04/2012 I love their super sensitive skin lotion and the calming shampoo and body wash. I’m getting ready to go back to the US in a few weeks and I’m taking an empty suitcase!!!! Kelly R. - Interiors For Families 07/04/2012 We love California Baby, as well. Wish it weren’t so darned expensive though! We also use the calming shampoo/wash and cream, and I just bought the natural bug repellent to try. Reply torijohnson5 07/05/2012 Hi Kelly – It is kind of pricey. I haven’t tried the shampoo and cream but would like to try that. And let me know if the bug repellent works.
