Every year, our family cannot wait to get to the beach or the pool during the summer. My son loves the water and being outdoors. Above is a picture of our recent trip to the beach in Galveston, Texas. The one thing that I stress to him is the importance of wearing sunscreen. Even though he has dark skin, he is still at risk for getting a sunburn.
This week I have the opportunity to try out a line of sun care products called Beyond Coastal. This line of products is new to me and is coming in handy now that we have just put up my son’s pool in the backyard. I was sent a sample of their product to review which includes:
1. Natural Sunscreen for Kids SPF 30+
2. Active Face Stick Sunscreen SPF 30
3. Active Sunscreen SPF 30+—clear and moisturizing
4. Natural Clear Sunscreen SPF 30+
5. Citrus Grove Lip Balm SPF 15
Here is what my son and I thought about the products:
We tried the natural sunscreen for kids before getting in the inflatable pool in the backyard. This one is not clear and goes on with a white coating. I usually don’t like the fact that when my son gets out of the water, you can “see” the sunscreen dripping down his body. Beyond Coastal does make a clean and clear product, but we didn’t try that one. The smell is mild and not overwhelming.
You can never have enough sunscreen for the summer!
I am also hosting a giveaway for a prize pack of Beyond Coastal products. The pack contains product that is the perfect size for traveling on vacation with or just to throw in your tote for a day at the park.
