Let’s be honest, sunscreens aren’t known for smelling the best. But one reviewer wrote, “This smells amazing!!” California Baby’s calendula, French lavender and clary sage-infused line of products possess an aroma that your baby will find soothing. The mineral sunscreen offers 60 minutes of water resistance, and its allergy-tested formula also works for adults with sensitive skin.

This mineral sunscreen by Kiss My Face is one of the select few that’s earned a No. 1 rating by the Environmental Working Group for safe sunscreens for kids.

All of this makes for one of the best sunscreens for toddlers. “Nobody in my family got a sunburn while we were on vacation this summer. My son is very fair skinned and skin cancer runs in his family, so I’m very picky about what I use,” an Amazon reviewer wrote. And another said, “Neither of my kids got sunburned while we used this all summer while we went to a water park, the beach, and Disney World. Plus, it’s the only thing I trust on my son with Eczema.”
