A Mom’s View on Sport Sunscreen Spray

DISCLAIMER ~ This post is sponsored by Banana Boat. All opinions are my own. I only share content that excites me and I feel would be beneficial to Canadian Moms. I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for a sunscreen that is Mom AND kid approved. In our household, this is a very difficult task.

There is a new product line brought out by Banana Boat® called the Simply Protect™ line. Today, I’ll be talking about the Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray.

Before I dive into this specific product, I would like to share with you my experience with

sunscreen and kids…

The summer months are full of fun and outdoor activities. With outdoor activities comes the need to protect your skin from the sun.

My daughter has very sensitive skin AND she burns very easily. Sunscreen has always been mandatory for her as she burns in minutes, just like her Mama. Over the years, we have been through MANY different kinds of sunscreen and some have worked better than others on her.

My son doesn’t burn, his skin goes straight to TAN. I have been doing my best to educate him that although he doesn’t burn, he still needs to protect his skin. This is SO important, isn’t it? But, how to convince a 9 year old who is very sensitive to touch and HATES putting anything on his skin (and I don’t use the word HATE lightly) to use a skin protection product? He has been begging me for years to use the spray sunscreen and I have always said no. However, when Banana Boat sent me a tester bottle, he was so eager to try it out. AND when I discovered that all of a sudden daily FIGHTS to put on sunscreen literally disappeared, I re-evaluated my position. While I don’t love breathing in spray of any kind AND I don’t feel it’s as good for our earth, I do need to protect my son’s skin. SO, you pick what works and if spray sunscreen is what works, that is what you go with.

Enter Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray ~ this has now become a staple in our household.

Every morning before school, the kids pack their bags and step out onto the porch to get their sunscreen (and lice spray). It’s a non-negotiable! It’s routine. It is life in our house from April until October (ish).
