I’m A Banana Boat® Ambassador! Also, Enter the Best Summer Ever Sweepstakes!

I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Banana Boat® Sun Care.
I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.


In Chicago, ya never know when the weather will change but I think it’s safe to say, SUMMER IS HERE! WooHoo! Now the kids are wanting to say outside playing all hours of the day. In the short time we’ve had summer weather, we’ve already been to outdoor picnics, campgrounds, lakes/beaches and of course, in our back yard playing in the water. With all of the hot weather we’ve been having to keep up on the sunscreen – but lucky for us – I’m a Banana Boat® Best Summer Ever Ambassador this summer! That means you’ll be hearing from me a few times over the next few months and I get to tell you about my experience using Banana Boat® sun care products.


I posted on Instagram, “Ok Mother Nature… I’m a #BananaBoat ambassador now and just got this stuff in and I’m ready to use it! Get rid of this snow and bring is temps over 80F!!”


What Do You Have Planned for This Summer?

We are planning on going to a couple of the Chicago beaches a few times this summer along with possibly one big trip. We’re thinking about heading to Tybee Island, Georgia for a week. We have a couple of local waterparks we can’t miss. Oh and don’t forget those awesome splash pads! We have a few out here and they’re FREE and FUN! But we can’t forget the sun screen. We all have different skin tones – me, Mike and Gracie already have tans and Olivia stays dark all year round. Austin, Emma, Becca and Jack are pale and get burnt easily so we really need to be careful with them. And even though Mike has a tan, it’s a farmers tan so he needs to be careful too.

Banana Boat® Sun Care Products

Did you know that Banana Boat® sun care products are tested in seven conditions to provide safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection for the entire family? That’s right, the sun care products are tested in sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat. That’s perfect considering we should be going through all seven of these conditions this summer, as I am sure you will be too!

Here are some more details about Banana Boat® sun care products:

What Have We Tried So Far?

So far, we’ve had the chance to try out the NEW Banana Boat® Kids Free Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen on Gracie and Jack. I was able to spray them all over with no hassle and no mess. Very convenient! We also had the chance to try the Protect & HydrateTM Sunscreen Clear UltraMist® on Emma and Becca. They didn’t re-apply when they should have and ended up getting sunburn. We haven’t had a chance to use Sport Performance® Clear UltraMist® but we use that one every year, it’s one of our favorites.
