I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
As someone who burns easily, I’ve always been diligent about using sunscreen. Even on tropical vacations, I manage my time in the sun and protect my skin, often coming back just sun-kissed (not sunburned!) despite being in the intense sun. That’s why I’m excited to let you all know that I’ve been selected as a Banana Boat Ambassador!
Over the next couple of months you’ll see me posting tips and information on my blog and social media outlets about how to keep your skin healthy in the sun — which definitely includes a great sunscreen!
My family has been a Banana Boat family for years now. As someone who has allergies and skin sensitives, I’ve tried all the sunscreen brands out there. Many irritated my skin and flared up my allergies. Sneezing and itchy eyes due to sunscreen is no fun. Trust me! And it made me wonder what on earth they were putting in those products. I’ve never experienced a flare up with Banana Boat, and I love their range of products.
When my babies arrived, I wanted to make sure we took great care of their skin. We started using their Baby Tear-Free Sting-Free Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50. Now that they’re a bit older, we use the Kids Tear-Free Sting-Free Lotion Sunscreens to keep their skin protected. Banana Boat’s Kids Free Clear UltraMist Sunscreen is the only alcohol-free, tear-free, sting-free kids clear spray.
This summer I have a running list of all of the great free things we’re going to be doing! Much of those activities are going to be outside. Hey, I live in Chicago. The moment the weather turns nice, we run to get outdoors. What I’m looking forward to the most is going to the Lake Michigan beach. We live just 10 minutes away, and I’m so excited to grab the kids and go play in the sand. And of course, we’ll be wearing Banana Boat to take care of our skin.
Did you know that Banana Boat sun care products are tested in seven conditions? Yep. They test them for sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat to provide safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. And we find the spray-on sunscreens much easier to apply on the kids. Who wants to spend 20 minutes wrangling the kids when you can just spray on the sunscreen and go!
