Banana Boat® Best Summer Ever Great Big Family Reunion
It’s SUMMER! I just can’t say that enough. I have been looking so forward to summer that I can hardly believe it is finally here. Yet here I am writing about all the fun things we have planned to do outside this year! This Summer truly is going to be the BEST SUMMER EVER!
Our family is planning many opportunities to get together and have fun outside in the sunshine. With all those outside activities comes the need for head to toe sunscreen. Sunscreen is so important in my family because it seems as it we have the ability to get sunburned walking past an open window. This year already I have treated a sunburn on myself and Bub because we didn’t plan ahead. Learn from our burn. Even if you are only going out a short while, grab the sunscreen. Burns can happen on cloudy days as well, be sure to spray you and your children 30 minutes before going outside every time. Reapply the sunscreen every two hours you are outside.
Banana Boat® has launched a new and improved line of sunscreens this year that are sure to protect and impress. First there is the Sport Performance®Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology™ which is designed for the sports lover in all of us. It’s light-weight, sweat and water resistant (up to 80 min.), absorbs quickly (tested and I will attest this is a true statement even on a wriggling toddler.). It’s also non-greasy and doesn’t run in your eyes! We loved that this lotion provided heavy duty protection while we played outside. I could worry more about wear the soccer ball went than if the kids were going to get sunburned or getting too much sun.
Next up is the Banana Boat®’s SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist®Sunscreen the sunscreen that is PERFECT for a beach trip. It allows sand to be easily brushed off and protects the skin from sun, chlorine and salt water! Banana Boat® has also reformulated its Dry Oil Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen to include argan oil. It is a lightweight dry oil that protects the skin from the sun and also moisturizes and leaves skin silky smooth.

The rules of sunscreen should be something every parent knows. Every sun burn increases the chances of skin cancer, which is why it is so important to make sure we always follow these important sunscreen rules.
Cover the entire body 30 minutes before going outside!
Reapply sunscreen EVERY 2 hours!
Reapply after swimming or excessive sweating!
We have been using our new and improved Banana Boat® products all week long as we swam, played, walked, and went about our Summer activities. Although I personally have always been partial to spray on sunscreen, the Sport Performance®Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology™ has taught me that lotion can be a good thing. It soaks in quickly and has a lot of great qualities. The Sport Performance®Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology™ ended up being the kids’ favorite. They actually let me put it on them without much fight. We also liked Banana Boat®’s SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist®Sunscreen. It is a lightweight sunscreen that really does let the sand brush right off while providing excellent protection from the sun. The Dry Oil Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen was what Granny and I tried. I think we were under the impression that we would get a tan after all the sun we absorbed. Sadly no tan to be seen… but the bright side was not even a little red either. And our skin was so smooth it was like we used lotion.
