Which Sunscreen Is Right For You?

Written by Alanna Schiffer

Which Sunscreen is Right for You? What’s your favourite summer activity? Mine is not getting sunburned. Second favourite is beach volleyball. Really? You too? Well guess what — we can do both at the same time, because the Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ line of sunscreen has us covered. 

How many times have you heard about applying sunscreen? Good, because you need to hear it again. It is THAT important. For those of you who might be looking for a sunscreen with fewer ingredients, check out Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ sunscreen which is made with 25% fewer ingredients. But how do you know which sunscreen product is right for you (and me, since we have so much in common)? It’s easy — Banana Boat® has done all the work and below are some of my favourites: 

For The Little Ones

The last thing my kids want to do is get out of the water and stop playing to put on sunscreen.  (And if yours are like mine, you can hear them whining in your mind right now). If you’re looking for a great mineral-based sunscreen alternative, check out Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Baby and Kids.  They’re made with 25% fewer ingredients, made without oxybenzone and parabens and super gentle for your little one’s delicate skin.  Both formulas provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and are water resistant for up to 80 minutes, so we can all focus on more play time and more fun in the sun!

*(Remember, for babies under six months of age; consult your doctor before using any sunscreen)

Ready For Any Sport

When I want to do my two favourite summer activities (see above), I need a sunscreen that’s going to be water and sweat-resistant. Yes, I admit it: I perspire, from time to time. If you are also a human with sweat glands, you may benefit from a sunscreen with these properties as well. I like Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport SPF 50+ sunscreen lotion and spray; the formula is water and sweat-resistant for up to 80 minutes, made without oxybenzone and also provides lightweight and effective broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection to deliver sport-strength protection.  I love that Simply Protect Sport is made with 25% fewer ingredients so I can focus on giving 110% in my game. *wink*.

Sensitive Skin, Rejoice!

Since we’re getting to know each other, another thing about me is that I have sensitive skin. You too? OMG. We’re like twins. There are so many products out there that say they are good for sensitive skin, but then when you read the ingredients, there’s added fragrance or some kind of oil you just can’t be sure about. Well, with new Banana Boat® Simply Protect Sensitive™ lotion for body and face, you get a mineral-enriched sunscreen with no added oils or fragrances, but you do get SPF 50+ protecting your skin. The hypoallergenic formula is dermatologist tested and is basically my skin’s best friend. But that’s not to say I don’t have room in my life for another best friend.

So, uh, what are you doing this weekend? Wanna go to the beach? I’ll pack the Banana Boat!
