Get Ready for Summer with Banana Boat




I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat® Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. I will be posting to my blog and social media several times in the next couple of months about these products.

Banana Boat Youngest Child

With two little boys and another sweet baby on the way, summer can not come fast enough!  My two year old, Rhino, lives to play outside.  Rhino is your typical boy who loves digging in dirt, racing four wheelers and playing in the water.  Then there is Lamby, my almost 1 year old, who cannot get enough of the horses down the street and splashing in the water in grandpa’s pool.  As the weather starts to heat up and the sun is out longer, my boys and I will be taking many adventures in our backyard, throughout the neighborhood, and at the pool.

I’m super excited to announce that I’m a Banana Boat Best Summer Ever Ambassador! Over the next few months I’ll be sharing our family’s summer adventures using Banana Boat with you!
With bike rides, swimming and outdoor jungle gyms in my future this summer, I am turning to Banana Boat to help protect the whole family from the sun.  Banana Boat offers something unique for each member of the family and for every different activity you may participate in throughout those sunny days.

Banana Boat Kids Free Clear UltraMist Sunscreen is the perfect protection for my little men.  It is the only alcohol-free, tear-free, sting-free kid’s clear spray.  The fact that it sprays is a huge plus for a busy mom like me since it allows me to apply it quickly and gives me the peace of mind I need while out in those bright rays.  The formulation is pediatrician-tested and goes on clear to provide fast and even coverage.  And Banana Boat® Kids Free Clear UltraMist Sunscreen is available in SPF 50+!

For me, Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Clear UltraMist is my go to sunscreen while out on my walks with the boys.  Personally, the longer I spend in the sun the more my skin starts to feel like an alligator.  The Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Clear UltraMist provides a unique 2-in-1 combination of sunscreen and all-day moisturizer, combining aloe with vitamins C & E, leaving my skin feeling soft and looking healthy when used and reapplied.  One thing I do not normally like about sunscreen is how sticky it feels on my skin after applied; with this specific type of sunscreen I find that to not be an issue.  The combination of the moisturizer and sunscreen seems to eliminate that sticky feeling for me. Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Clear UltraMist is available in SPF 30 and 50+.

  1. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    We spend the whole summer at the beach, so sun screen is SUPER important for us!

  2. Having seen what my family members have gone through with skin cancer, I now make sunscreen a HUGE priority. Love that there is now a men’s line!

  3. We just stocked up on Banana Boat sunscreen for the summer. Serious, I love the stuff and I’m so glad they have a greener version.

  4. We love Banana Boat too! They have such a good range of products!

  5. I’ve been using banana boat products forever – I’m a big fan of them!

  6. It’s in the 100’s today and it’s scorching right now. This would really come in handy on days like these.

  7. We’re building our new home and have been pretty focused on that for the moment, but we’re looking forward to a fun summer!

  8. My husband and I plan on visiting New Orleans for a few days next month. As for the family, we’re going to hit a few caves, such as the Bell Witch Cave in Tennessee – it is supposedly haunted. 😉

  9. Sunscreen spray is our favorite, it is so easy to use. My kids and I burn easily, so we go through a bunch of sunscreen every year.

  10. Thanks! I’m entering the sweeps. Sun protection is so important and Banana Boat is a great brand. They have a wonderful selection of products.

  11. My husband and I are planning on staying inside a lot this summer as I’m due in early August with our first baby! We do plan to go to the beach for a couple days in the next couple weeks, though. Banana Boat is fabulous! Love their spray sunscreen – we plan to take some with us!

  12. Our daughter already has had one really horrible sunburn this summer because she didn’t reapply after having been in the water and then drying off and then going back in…seeing as she’s 18 though, there’s not much I can do but lecture 😉 I love those spray on sunscreens though, they are so easy to apply.

  13. Tear-free sunscreen for kids is awesome! I have too many memories of getting sunscreen in my daughter’s eyes while applying at the pool and zoo. What a relief to not have to worry about her (or me) rubbing sunscreen into her eyes! My husband has worked in cytology for many years and cancer is a daily topic in our home. Teaching children the importance of sunscreen at an early age is so valuable!
