Staying Safe with Banana Boat

banana-boat-sport-performance-coolzone-ultramist-continuous-spray-sunscreen-spf-30Our family has had such an amazing summer!  We have spent countless hours playing outside; riding bikes, swimming, and playing with friends.  It has flown by, but the one thing we haven’t done this summer is get a sunburn. (Thank goodness!!)  The reason is that we always have Banana Boat Sunscreen with us and on us!

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.

I keep Banana Boat sunscreen everywhere.  One in my car, one in my pool bag, one in my diaper bag, one in every linen closet, and even a small one in my purse.  I know it sounds silly, but, when your skin is as sensitive to the sun as mine is, you want to be prepared.

I have been using Banana Boat products for as long as I can remember.  The unfortunate thing is that when I was a teenager, and thought I looked super cool with a tan sunburn, I would carry around Banana Boat’s Aloe gel.  I actually still love the smell of it and how cool it feels on my skin, but thankfully I rarely use it these days.  Now, my favorite Banana Boat product is the Sport Performance Coolzone Continuous Spray Sunscreen.  It is ridiculously easy to apply, feels so good on hot skin, and the best part is that it actually smells good!  Unlike most spray sunscreens that leave a terrible chemical-y smell and have my kids coughing and holding their breath, I can put this on them with no complaints.  Another bonus – I can spray the part in my hair to keep my scalp from burning, without having to worry about gross greasy hair later on in the day.  (Ladies, you know this is a BIG bonus!)

We have also tried the Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion, the Baby Natural Reflect Lotion, and the Kids Tear-Free Sting-Free Sunscreen Lotion, and I have no complaints.  I greatly appreciate that Banana Boat made a sunscreen that I can use on my children’s faces without worrying about stinging, red eyes and crying fits.  It seems inevitable that this will happen, but not when I use the Tear-Free Banana Boat!

Even when we have been having so much fun at the beach that I forgot to reapply, Banana Boat has come through for me, and my skin & my  children’s skin has stayed protected.

I never want my kid’s to know the terrible feeling of a sunburn or sun poisoning.  So, when this super cool kid wants to spend the day boogie boarding,


or when this little lovey wants to comb the beach for the seashells,


I will always have Banana Boat with me to make sure our family is safe in the sun!
