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.

With two active little boys, I try to get outside a LOT to help burn off their energy — but this is easier said than done in rainy Seattle! If it’s not pouring rain, you will find us at a local park or riding bikes on our street every single afternoon. But when the sun comes out, it is OUT — our pale Seattle skin can only handle a few minutes in the sun before we start shriveling up. Seriously, though, I try to be super conscious about sunscreen on the regular — it is so easy for young skin to get burned! We’re always super eager to get outside as frequently as possible when it’s sunny, too, since good weather is hard to come by in our neck of the woods.

That’s why the new Banana Boat® Sport Performance® Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen with Powerstay TechnologyTM is so great — it was specifically designed for the spot enthusiast and active individual who doesn’t have a second to waste outside in the sun. Powerstay TechnologyTM is the brand’s latest innovation, which helps sunscreen stay on strong throughout all outdoor activities. This new formula has been designed to provide better application aesthetics, including a light-weight feel compared to the original formula, as consumers continue to seek products that feel good on their skin. Banana Boat® Sport Performance® Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen with Powerstay TechnologyTM is available in SPF 15, 30, 50+ and 100.
