Because you still need sun protection in Winter – Banana Boat Review and Giveaway

I was gifted these Banana Boat products to review

First, an earworm….

You’re welcome :p

Banana boat spray sunscreen

So, I got this cool spray on Banana Boat sunscreen to make sure I keep screening up in winter – and it’s so easy to apply – look!!

No messyness, no white stuff, smells alright too!

So why should you keep on sunscreening in winter? (aside from the obvious need to at the snow where it’s a MUST and you’ll still get goggle tanlines anyway!)

UV in Australia can still be pretty damn intense even when you’ve only got your face exposed to the elements. Any more than the 10 mins for vitamin b is still a bit much for pasties like me.
1400 people died from skin cancer each year in Australia.
Things like Sunscreen lip balms are amazing for keeping your lips from becoming cracked and ewie.
Even if you’re not prone to burning, protecting your skin from UV rays is helpful for holding back wrinkles and the like (experience lines, sure, but I’m for keeping them away a little longer, I still get carded dammit!)

Want to give this spray on sunscreen a try? I have two cans to giveaway to Australian based readers. Just follow the instructions in the Gleam giveaway widget below.

And enjoy that sunshine! Banana Boat Giveaway

    I moisturise like crazy in winter, of course it always has to have a high SPF factor.

    Im heading for a dream trip to LA and Las Vegas in 8 weeks time so sunscreen is on the shopping list for sure.

    Having seen the effects of the sun on a cousin that had skin cancer and lost a huge chunk of her face at a young age, I try and make sure the entire family is sun safe. It doesn’t always work.

    My hubby is of the misconception that you don’t need to keep up the sunscreen in winter and his skin is more suspectable to skin cancer, so I do worry.

    This product looks fantastic.

    The same was as I do in Spring, Summer and Autumn, with my wifes moisturizer. The expensive stuff that makes her scream when she catches me ‘using too much’

    I’ve only just discovered the secret of applying sunscreen in winter, every day. It keeps my skin moist and shiny rather than dry and lifeless. It really is a revelation.

    I slather my body with moisturiser as soon as I hop out of the shower, to keep my skin silky soft during winter.

    My skin is happy when I’m happy. And I’m happy when I’m healthy and hydrated. I get out and enjoy life in our great land. An Australian winter is no excuse for going into hibernation!

    Drinking plenty of water to make sure my body and skin is hydrated! It does make a huge difference and my skin loses its ‘glow’ if I forget for a few days.

    I don’t!!!!! My skin is like a moody teenager (pimples and all!!!) and I’m the hapless mum trying everything but succeeding with nothing… I cleanse, I exfoliate, I moisturise, but still it is dry, dull and lifeless. Bring on the Summer time :)

    No matter what I do (keep hydrated, moisturise and eating lots of fruits and veggies), I can’t get around the pasty, winter look. Love to get some sun the right way so I’ll always have the “cool bananas” summer look always.

    Things become dry when there is not enough water. Drinking it adds it from the inside and moisturiser adds it from the outside.

    Coconut oil, I eat with it, cook with it, I would bathe in it if I could, my skin, hair and finger nails have never looked better

    Moisturiser and drinking water, two basic actions that are so important to good healthy bodies

    I’m 44 and already had two skin cancers cut off my face, so I sunscreen twice a day, always have uphat and glasses no matter the weather and lots of water

    Drink lots of water to keep hydrated, and a good moisturiser, so my skin is happy inside and out.
