Have the #BBBestSumer | Don’t Forget to Re-Apply Sunscreen!

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.


Summer time is our favorite time of year and we practically live in the water. Whether it’s the local pool, the big waterpark or the splash pad – we’re there! Unfortunately, we’ve gotten a few sunburns this year. Remembering to put on sunscreen is half of the problem and the other problem is remembering to re-apply it. Why is it so hard for us to remember to head back to our chairs and re-apply? We’re caught up in our day, we’re caught up on the next big slide… and sunscreen is the farthest from our minds.

Have the #BBBestSumer | Don’t Forget to Re-Apply Sunscreen!

Here are some ideas to keep in mind so you don’t forget the sunscreen!

  • Keep sunscreen in the bag! Keep it in your purse or diaper bag or beach bag so it’s with you no matter where you go!
  • Keep sunscreen in your car. I have a bag of ‘extras’ in the back of the car ‘just in case’ and one of those items is a bottle of sunscreen.
  • Sunscreen usually needs to be reapplied after about 80 min. I try to plan it out. When we hit the very first slide, I check out the wait. If it takes us 20 min. to get down a slide, then I know we have time for about 4 slides and we better head back to re-apply the sunscreen.
  • Don’t let the shade fool you. I see the shady weather and I get lazy. Apply the sunscreen even if it’s shady outside! If you’ll notice in the photos above, it was gloomy and sometimes dark and about to rain. 3 of my kids ended up with sunburn because we didn’t re-apply when we should have. I actually remembered but thought to myself, “Nah, it will be okay, it’s gloomy”. Big mistake.

How do you remember to use sunscreen or to re-apply?


  1. I don’t use sunscreen for myself, but I am all over it with my boys. We reapply like every hour.

  2. Sun screen is so important – I keep it in my bag and in the Jeep. It is amazing how fast a hot sun can burn skin.

  3. I always apply sunscreen, even when it’s cloudy out. I’ve had to many sunburns when I was younger because I thought that it wasn’t sunny so I wouldn’t get burnt!

  4. Oh goodness those photos look amazingly fun! My kids wear sunscreen every time they go out even in overcast weather. I rarely put it on myself, awful! I know.

  5. So important to reapply that sunscreen, especially if the kiddos and I are swimming! Thanks for the reminder!

  6. That water park looks like so much fun! We keep the sunscreen out in the open, so we see it. If I put it in the bag, I forget about it!

  7. We use Banana Boat as well and ALWAYS use it and reapply. We belong to the pool so it gets used almost daily. We also went on a cruise 3 weeks ago and used a ton of sunscreen. I burn easily and so do my kids so we don’t leave home without it. Great tips and thanks for sharing them.

  8. I am a big fan of the sport sunscreen because it holds up so much better and I do not have to apply it so often.

  9. sunscreen is so important but people often don’t think they need to reapply it because it says “waterproof”, and that’s not true. We have a whole closet shelf full of different sunscreen options but the brand we always buy is Banana Boat because it performs the best.

  10. I feel like we have gone through more sun block this summer than ever before, literally a bottle or 2 a week!

  11. We always use sunscreen, but I am terrible about making everyone reapply. We have gotten some nasty burns over the years.

  12. I almost always forget to apply sunscreen but my kiddo hasn’t gotten burned yet so at least that’s a plus. OOPS!

  13. Sunscreen is so important! It is so easy to get a sunburn, even in the shade. I really like sport sunscreen as it lasts for so long.

  14. Keep the sunscreen on at all times! I heard the surgeon general say the other day that one sunburn on a child – ONE – doubles their risk for skin cancer later in life.

  15. We try to remember every 2-3 hours to reapply, but if we’re in the water alot, we do it more frequently. Sunscreen for kids and adults is important!

  16. Reapplying is SO important! One of kids is more sensitive than the others and you can tell right away if we forget.

  17. I’m very fair-skinned, so I almost always remember to wear sunscreen (and apply it to my son first.) If we’re out for long, or have been in the water, I’m pretty vigilant in making sure re-application happens!

  18. I burn in 10 minutes when I am out in the sun. I try never to forget sunscreen and always have to reapply it.

  19. I don’t use it as much as I should. Mainly, because when I do get burned, it never hurts. I should try to though, as it is protecting me from so much more than just sunburn.

  20. My adult sons just took this sunscreen with them today to the Dodger game. It works great.

  21. Thanks for sharing these great tips for sunscreen. Even the sunscreen that is “water proof” should still be watched carefully just to be sure.

  22. Angela S says:

    I had a pretty bad burn early in the summer and have made sure to reapply my sunscreen since. That was no fun.

  23. I love spray sunscreen! It’s so easy to use!

  24. I always have sunscreenwith me. We live in Florida so anytime you are in the sun you need protection.

  25. Living in Cali sunscreen is a must. We apply very often!

  26. We keep sunscreen with us at all times during the summer. I am very fair skinned, so I worry about myself and my boys looking like lobsters at the end of the day!

  27. Smart tip to keep it close to you. I’ve put it on a chair at a water park and come back to have the bottle gone and in the neighbor’s hands. I asked for it back of course, to which one lately instantly started to give it to me at the same time the other lady said it wasn’t mine. -_- Silly ladies, how could they think I was going to let sunscreen pass when I had kiddos who needed to have it reapplied throughout the day. 🙂

  28. Sunscreen here in AZ is a must year-round. Too many people getting skin cancer these days, I don’t want myself or my loved ones to be added to the list!
