Banana Boat: The Perfect Summer Sunscreen + Contest! #bestsummerever #IC #sponsored

Thank You For Sharing!!

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

Summer is here….. woohoo! However, with summer comes the hot sun and the need for good sun protection. With a little one in our household this year, sun protection is very important in our everyday lives. The warmer weather that the summer season brings makes it a great time for the whole family to get together and have fun outside. Sunny days often begin by covering our little ones head to toe in sunscreen, and reapplying liberally throughout the day. With our children watching our every movie, leading by example as role models provides a great foundation for responsible sun protection. Kicking off the summer festivities, the Banana Boat Best Summer Ever “Great Big Family Reunion” offers summer fun in the sun adventures for the whole family.


We are planning a trip to the beach this summer so I am looking for a great sunscreen to assist us in staying safe this summer while we still enjoy our family time together on vacation. Banana Boat has a great array of products to meet everyone’s needs, i.e. different SPFs and spray vs. lotion sunscreen. Banana Boat sent me three sunscreen products to try out, which came in handy as we were staying at my in-laws that weekend due to our AC being broken in our house. Well, my in-laws have a pool and we wanted to hang out down there! Further on Father’s Day we decided to enjoy the weather and spend some family time together! I tossed the sunscreen in my bag and we headed out for a fun family day. The Banana Boat sunscreen came at the perfect time. I was sent 3 bottles of Banana Boat products try out. They sent me the SunComfort Clear UltraMist Sunscreen, Sport Performance Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology and the Dry Oil Clear UltraMist Sunscreen! 

Banana Boat

My favorite was the SunComfort Clear UltraMist Sunscreen because it went on flawlessly and quickly but also protected me from the dangerous sun rays. This sunscreen goes beyond sun protection and is great for everyday use. This new formula allows sand to easily brush off and moisturizes to relieve dryness caused by sun, chlorine and salt water. This will be the best one for our beach trip this summer! My husband loved the Sport Performance Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology because he was helping his Dad in the garden and also playing with the dogs outside. This sunscreen was specifically designed for the sport enthusiast and active individual who doesn’t want to be slowed down when out in the sun. The lotion’s formula is light-weight, sweat-resistant, water-resistant (up to 80 minutes), quick absorbing, non-greasy and won’t run in eyes. PowerStay Technology locks actives in place and boosts staying power to provide heavy duty protection throughout all outdoor activities in lotion form. We were also sent the  Dry Oil Clear UltraMist Sunscreen which I also loved because it provided basic protection and also moisture to my already dry skin. I personally loved the mist sunscreen more than the lotion as it was easier for me to apply. This sunscreen now includes argan oil. This unique lightweight dry oil formula goes beyond sun protection, leaving skin feeling silky-smooth and moisturized and delivers one touch spray for quick, easy coverage with a light-weight, non-greasy feel. Banana Boat has products perfect for everyone in your family!

According to Banana Boat, we should apply about 1 oz. (2 Tbsp.) of sunscreen to our kids’ entire bodies 30 minutes before going outside. Then, reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or excessive sweating.
