Banana Boat Natural Reflect for Kids {#giveaway and testing opp. for you!}

Boy, has the weather sure changed quickly!  It is very true when people say that in Canada there are two season - winter and summer.  Winter was a long and drawn out affair this year and am I ever  ready for some summer sun.  As, are my cabin-fevered children.  They want to run, they want to play and they want to ride.  It's time to get out there!

Who's ready for some summer time fun?

So far this week, Ive put sunscreen lotion on my children, both mornings before they headed out for school.   It looks like the sunny days of summer have arrived (well, at least for now).   Over the past weekend, my daughter was out riding her bike and she came back with pink arms.  So, I know it is once again time, that I must remember to apply sunscreen to protect their skin. 

Banana Boat Natural Reflect for Kids Sunscreen Lotion

As a mom it is important to me to be using products on my children which are pediatrician tested to be safe.  Banana Boat Natural Reflect for Kids Sunscreen is formulated with 100% naturally source sunscreen actives.   It works by forming a protective layer on skin which reflects UVB and UVA rays.  This lotion has a SPF of 50, and is...
  • Non stinging to eyes
  • Water resistant
  • Paraben & PABA free
  • Oxybenzone free
The formulation is mildly scented and absorbs easily into skin.  There isn't any after-scent once it is applied to skin.  I love that it is formulated just for the delicate skin of our precious little ones.   I am so glad to have the option of using a sunscreen which is 100% naturally sourced.  

I know how important it is to protect skin every day of the year, but more so as the summer months arrive.  My husband's side of the family have a history of skin cancer.  I want to do everything I can for my children in their young years, from sun damage.

So, Banana Boat and Country Mouse, City Mouse are happy to provide a testing opportunity for readers.  Canadian readers can enter to be one of 25 lucky winners of a bottle of Banana Boat Natural Reflect Sunscreen Lotion.  THEN, come back and submit your thoughts and opinions on the product and you'll be entered to win a $50.00 gift card!  I love these promotions and the opportunity they allow my readers.

I like that it is a more natural product. It is important to me to consider what's in the things we put on our bodies.

I tried other brands / types. Sticky mess, spray bottle not working or not knowing if it sprays on everything else. I will try if this made a difference.

Banana Boat is already a trusted name and now if the product is natural I would love to try it. Especially knowing you are slathering on your kids' skin all summer long.

we love Banana Boat! It's nice to see they came out with a natural sunscreen. It's hard to find natural ones for my kids who both have sensitive skin. Would love to try it out.

I am interested in trying out this sunscreen because it's natural. I'm very careful about what I put on my children's skin, and this sounds like a good, natural sunscreen.

Olivia L said...

I'm interested in trying this as my daughter is very sensitive to the feel of sunscreen on her skin and I want to see if she can use this one.

Heidi said...

Banana Boat is one of the two brands I usually use for my kids for sunscreen; the other is Green Beaver. I am interested in using a more "natural" Banana Boat product. My son has sensitive skin, so I have a hard time finding products I can use for him, but Banana Boat is one that works for him.
