I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Banana Boat®. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I'm so happy now that summer has officially began because I love the warmer weather. Sunny days and warm nights are the perfect time for getting together with family. It's already been a very hot summer with intense sunshine. I have a variety of ages to protect from an eight month old to four, eight and 12 year olds. My middle one is a red head and requires a lot of sun protection which is why I turn to the line of Banana Boat® sun protection products due to their most comfortable line of sun protection products yet. When I go outside, I immediately apply Banana Boat®'s reformulated Dry Oil Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen which now includes argan oil. It's perfect for restoring moisture to my dry legs while providing protection from the sun's rays. It goes on smooth and it's not oily which is a double bonus.
When applying sunscreen, you should apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to you and your kids’ entire bodies 30 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. In spite of the terrible humidity and heat, it really lasts and provided the sun protection they needed. There have been no sunburns so far!
For my children, I alternate with SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist®Sunscreen and Sport Performance®Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology. The SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist®Sunscreen is also good for everyday use, allows sand to be brushed off easily and relieves dryness caused by the sun, chlorine and salt water. The SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist®Sunscreen™ was designed for those that are more active (i.e. young kids going crazy after school has let out for the summer!). What I liked about this product is it really lasted long and It was light weight, sweat resistant as well as up to 80 minutes water resistant. It absorbed quickly, was non-greasy and didn't run into my eyes like many do. The heavy duty protection was perfect for playing in the little pool or mowing the yard.

It doesn't always require a lot to get family together and any excuse is better than none. I've watched my family go from a family that held extended family reunions to none. I find it sad that people are too busy to find time to get together. Some of my fondest memories were summer time, in the sun, reunions with all my cousins and other family members. This summer, I'm getting together with some of my cousins. What about you? Grab the Banana Boat and head out whether your family is small or large, have fun this summer!
