Protect The Whole Family This Summer With Banana Boat! #BBBestSummer

Sunny days, swimsuits, flip-flops and cool refreshing water! That's what summer means to our family. We are very lucky to have a pool that we can jump into whenever we want. Now, those sunny, cloudless days will lead to serious sunburns if we are not protected. The BIG rule in our house: you cannot go outside without sunscreen! The kids know that before they put on their swimsuits, sunscreen needs to be applied. This way, I know they have a base of protection before they jump into the water. We run of out sunscreen quickly and since I knew the kids would be spending the weekend swimming, I stopped by Walmart to stock up on our favorite, Banana Boat. #BBBestSummer #CollectiveBias

During the spring and summer months, Walmart has sunscreen displays all over the store. It's easy to pick and choose which ones your family needs. Every family member requires different sun protection. Our family uses the following:

For the kids, I chose Banana Boat Kids Free SPF50 Clear Spray. I love spray sunscreen for kids, it makes applying and re-applying so easy. No need to sit kids down for half an hour while I attempt to apply "yucky white lotion" (their exact words) that they despise. This sunscreen is tear-free, sting-free continuous lotion spray sunscreen that rocks!!

Banana Boat has a new men's line of sunscreen and I made sure to choose the Men's Triple Defense SPF 30 for JC. This sunscreen with ActiveProtect technology provides heavy-duty UVA/UVB protection, combats odor while sweating and contains Aloe and Vitamin E. JC is fair-skinned and always wears sunscreens, no burning for him! 

For me, I love the Protect & Hydrate 50. It's a 2-n-1 sunscreen and moisturizer. Let's face it, I'm not getting any younger and I'll take all the moisturizer I can get. Protect & Hydrate 50 comes in lotion and spray. It doesn't feel greasy and dries quickly. 

IMPORTANT TIP: Re-apply sunscreen often! Once you are able to corral your children, spray them with sunscreen, you are able to let them go. Kids Free SPF 50 is water-resistant so they can go right back to this:

Keeping my family's skin protected from the sun is a top priority. We are too busy swimming and practicing our cannonballs to be worried about sunburns!
