Banana Boat Natural Sunscreen Lotion ~ Review and Giveaway ~ 3 Winners! ~ ends 9/5

I have a few people in my home that really need to use sunscreen when they go out.  One of my daughters inherited her grandmother's light Irish skin and burns so quickly.  My husband needs to be careful since he works out of doors mostly, and I worry about skin cancer.  I have tried to find sunscreens that work for each of them, but they were never happy with them.  Then along came Banana Boat Natural Reflect Sunscreen.

Banana Boat Natural Reflect Sunscreen SPF50+ is paraben and PABA free.  It's ingredients come from mineral sunscreen actives and zinc oxide that provide broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.  It is recommended by the Skin Care Foundation.

I was lucky enough to have Banana Boat contact me to do a review.  I am so happy that I accepted.  My husband likes the adult formula that we were sent.  It does not leave a white residue, and it keeps him from getting sunburn.  He is quite happy with it.

My daughter prefers the Baby formula.   She has the fairest skin in the family, and our hot desert sun is not very good for her.  She usually covers herself from head to foot when she goes outside.  I asked her to test the baby formula since she has a more sensitive skin.  It did protect her for the time that she was outside.  She is happy because now she does not have to wear gloves and a long sleeve shirt when she ventures out during the day.

Banana Boat products were tested under the hot Florida sun, and were found to last for five hours during the strongest sun exposure time of the day, between 10am to 3pm.  It is very water resistant and will last up to 80 minutes.  The baby formula is tear and sting free, and is pediatrician tested. The SPF50+ provides broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays.  The size of the tube makes it completely portable.  You can toss it in your purse, backpack, or car, and you can reapply it anywhere you're at.

Banana Boat cares about your skin.  They are just loaded with information on sun safety.  They have sun care tips, and a frequent asked question section on sun care and an SPF guide.

Banana Boat carries more than just the two sunscreens that I have reviewed.  You can find out more at their website.  You can also keep in touch with Banana Boat through Facebook and Twitter.

You can buy Banana Boat Natural Reflect Sunscreen at most major stores including Wal-Mart, Target, and many major grocery store chains.  The list price for a tube of the sunscreen is $11.99, but I found it on Amazon for only $8.97.


You can win a tube of Banana Boat Natural Reflect Sunscreen with a retail value of $11.99 right here!  With many thanks to Banana Boat, THREE people are going to win a tube of sunscreen of their very own.  This giveaway is for residents of the USA only, and will end on September 5, 2012.  Please enter using the Rafflecopter below.
