I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat. I received product samples and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Just when I thought summer was over we got another heat spell. Even with the kids back in school, we’re still enjoying afternoons and weekends with some fun in the sun. We’re spending a lot of our time at the park, the water park and even in our own backyard tossing the football around. More importantly, we’re having fun and keeping our skin protected. Sunscreen is an important part of outdoor activities because it helps avoid sunburns and protects skin from harmful sun rays that can lead to skin cancer with excessive exposure.
As with most products, we like to give them all a try, especially ones that are new. Banana Boat sent our family a collection of sunscreen products that are designed for use with babies, kids and adults.
Banana Boat® Protect & Hydrate™ Sunscreen Lotion – My favorite product for my own skin, this one is a 2 in 1 UVA/UVB Sunscreen plus all day moisturizer with Aloe Vera. I love that it goes on as a lotion but absorbs very quickly into my already dry screen without leaving a greasy residue. When it comes to any product on my skin I won’t use anything that leaves it feeling greasy. It comes in SPF 15, 30 and 50 with a suggested retail price under $11.
Banana Boat® Sunscreen Baby Natural Reflect Lotion – While we don’t have any babies in our house anymore, I do often look for sunscreen formulas that are mild and tear-free for the little faces in our house. I love that this product is Paraben and PABA free. As a 50+ SPF broad spectrum sunscreen, I count on it to keep my little ones skin protected.
Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ Continuous Spray Sunscreen – For my oldest child, I like this product because he can apply it himself when I’m not around to do it. The clear, continuous spray makes it easy for him to apply head to toe. Personally, I like using it too because it comes in a fresh scent that doesn’t give off the usual funky odor of sunscreen.
Banana Boat® Kids Sunscreen Tear-Free Sting Free Lotion – For my two daughters, I spent a lot of time covering their precious skin with this product. It’s a long lasting 50+ SPF/UVB sunscreen lotion that’s very water resistant. The girls spent a lot of time at the water park this summer and we reapplied once per hour to avoid sunburns.
