Banana Boat Review & $55 Prize Pack Giveaway

                        Summer is my favorite time of the year. When I think of summer, it reminds me of growing up on America's rollercoast, Sandusky,Ohio.   My summer was spent at the local amusement park, Cedar Point. Enjoying all the rides and attractions.  We would also take the boat out on the lake, to visit the islands.  All of the activities were outdoors and it was so easy to get a sunburn.   A sunburn meant you were missing out on all the fun with your friends.

                                     Banana Boat sunscreen has a wide variety of products to protect you from UVA & UVB rays.  Their products allow you to enjoy all those special moments with your family and friends outdoors.   You can choose several different varieties including continuous clear ultramist spray, lotion, stick, and lip balm.   The sun protection factor or SPF is the amount of time it will protect your skin for 10 minutes . For example, a sunscreen with SPF 15 will protect for 150 minutes.   Banana Boat has sunscreen with a SPF level ranging from 4-110.

I was able to try the new Sport Performance Clear UltraMist with SPF110.  I absolutely love it!    The UltraMist spray,  allows me to coat my kids without getting my hands covered in sunscreen.  It makes preparation for the pool, simple and easy.   The sunscreen sticks make it so easy to apply to your nose and under your eyes.   My kids and I,  always apply extra there-  nobody like a sun burnt nose.  I don't like to walk around looking like, Rudolph,  the red nose reindeer.  If you stayed in the sun to long, the Aloe After the Sun gel, is refreshing. It has a cooling effect while it moisturizes and prevents your skin from peeling.

            Banana Boat wants to help you become sun certified. Click here to take the quiz.  Upon completion, Banana Boat will donate $1 for each person certified to, The Skin Cancer Foundation.  They quiz only takes a couple of minutes. A donation to The Skin Cancer Foundation from Banana Boat,  puts us that much closer to defeating cancer.  The goal is to have 101,000 people certified.

Banana Boat, generously is offering one Saving U Green reader a $55 prize pack. It contains:
  • Kids Tear-Free Sting Free Lotion
  • SPF 110 Sport
  • Radio Cooler
  • Water Bottle
  • Women’s t-shirt
