We went on a family vacation a few weeks ago, and my goal this time was to only do carry-on bags instead of the huge checked bag we often take with us. (It worked great, we should’ve made the kids carry their own backpacks years ago.)

Anyway, something that kind of flummoxed me was our spray sunscreen — I usually give the kids my regular daily face sunscreen (often Missha, but currently Bioré), and I carry a sunscreen stick in my purse for easy reapplication — but we’ve always used a spray sunscreen for legs, arms, and any other big exposed areas. It didn’t occur to me until right before we left that I couldn’t bring our big canister onto the plane, and at the time the only TSA-friendly body sunscreen I could find was liquid. It was fine, but it was kind of a pain slathering everyone’s legs and arms with it before we went out.

So I went on a hunt for a travel-sized spray sunscreen, and found this. It isn’t fancy, but you can order it online and it’s certainly keep enough to grab a couple to put in your various bags.

This Banana Boat option $2.97 at Wal-mart… if you know of any others I’d love to hear them!
