Protect Your Family's Skin with @BananaBoat_ Suncare #MC #Sponsored

Can you believe it’s almost fall? This summer really flew by, but we had lots of fun. We spent the majority of our time between the beach and our new pool, which actually created a big concern for me as far as sunscreen goes. As a kid, sunscreen wasn’t a big part of my life. I loved to lounge on the beach and hit the tanning salons on regular basis. It wasn’t until around the time I had my first son did the true dangers of the sun really start coming to light.

Summer fun
"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.”"
Apply sunscreen over your child’s entire body before going outside. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating or towel drying.

Three of my four children are extremely fair skinned. Left unprotected in this hot Florida sun; they begin to turn red in just a few minutes. As someone who wasn’t educated about sun dangers as a youngster, its been a lot of trial and error. We always wear hats and sunglasses are a part of our daily attire, but in earlier day’s sunscreen was a struggle – especially for the kids.

Water-resistant, spray-on sunscreens are perfect for toddlers who won’t sit still.

Someone forgot to tell me all sunscreen isn’t created equal and that was lesson my son hasn’t forgotten. A trip to Disney resulted in my son looking redder than a lobster and me struggling to figure out where I went wrong.


I was applying sunscreen to him throughout the day, so what happened? Maybe the SPF was too low? Maybe I didn’t apply quite enough? Or maybe the sunscreen wasn’t built for water and sweat.... Whatever went wrong it couldn’t happen again. And that is when I discovered my love for Banana Boat and its advanced technology providing effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection that won't break down in the sun.

Apply a golf-ball sized portion of Banana Boat® sunscreen lotion to your entire body and your child’s at least 15 minutes before going out in the sun.

Banana Boat has a full line of sun care products to provide moderate to high UVA/UVB protection. They also have a wide range of product; whether you're looking for a hassle free sunscreen application or gentle protection for your baby or toddler. Applied as directed Banana Boat is a great defense against all the suns damaging rays.

We were sent some of Banana Boats best to try out this summer. 
Banana Boat Sport Performance CoolZone Clear UltraMist Sunscreen proves to be a family favorite in our home. When we're on-the-go lotion based sunscreens can become a little messy and require a bit more time to apply. The Banana Boat CoolZone Clear UltraMist, sprays on clear making application a breeze while providing a cool refreshing feeling. It's not sticky and definitely not greasy. My older boys like it best because they were able to apply their own "touch ups." And with the spray bottle they could even get most of their own back without assistance - you know how independent teens and tweens can try and be.

This was also a great option for us since it provided broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection and lasts up to 80 minutes in the water!

Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion is a new lightweight 2-in-1 sunscreen and moisturizer lotion. Combining Aloe with Antioxidant Vitamins C & E to maintain 100% of your skin’s natural moisture, this is my personal choice for sunscreen protection. My skin dries out quick with frequent sun exposure, broad spectrum protection, and a moisturizer in a non-greasy formula, was just what I was in need of.

More great options for the kids and babies 6mth+ is Banana Boat Kids Sunscreen Tear-Free Sting Free Lotion and Natural Reflect Baby Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50+. If you prefer a lotion based formula that is of course tear/sting free and allows you greater coverage of areas like behind the ears and around the hairline. Banana Boats Kids Sunscreen is what you'll want. And you might like to know it is pediatric tested and recommended by the American Cancer Society.

If you want a natural formula for babies sensitive skin, Banana Boats Natural Reflect Lotion is a great option with 100% naturally sourced mineral sunscreen actives, Zinc Oxide. It's 
fragrance, oxybenzone and paraben-free, completely mild on the skin and provides adequate protection.

As you can read, Banana Boat seems to have every family covered whether your family is an active one, all-natural or someplace in-between. If your protected by Banana Boat, you're protected with sunscreen you can trust. And please remember. Just because the summer is ending it does not mean you should go without sunscreen: Summer, fall, winter, spring wear sunscreen year round!

I wish I lived near you. I would be in that pool and using your sunscreen. :) I can't imagine how kids can always get burnt (ha!) Mine were masters at it no matter how much sunscreen they wore (or claimed they wore.)

Your son does not look happy. I think we have all learned the lesson the hard way and enjoyed reading the review.

This is such an important post. Proper protection from the sun is so important, especially where children are concerned. I have gotten into the habit of carrying sunscreen in my purse and keeping it in the car in case we need to use it.

I bought 6 of the Banana Boat sunscreens at the beginning of the summer at Wags. We love it! Your son really did get the burn...oh goodness, poor little guy. You did all you could do, or thought you could anyway. You tried, the sunscreen failed you that you used.

Banana Boat is our family's go-to sunscreen, especially when we know we'll be in and out of water. It really holds up.
