Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

In my family, Sun Bum products are well loved, and often used. During the summer, they are are always among our top picks before heading out for a day of fun in the sun. 

Sun Bum SPF 15 Original Spray Sunscreen ($15.99 for 6 oz. from Sun Bum and Ulta): I generally use a high SPF sunscreen, but I do sometimes use a lower SPF when I have limited exposure to the outdoors. Sun Bum's spray sunscreens dry sheer and aren't in the least bit sticky or uncomfortable on the skin. This antioxidant enriched formula helps protect the skin against free radicals, and it is so easy to use. When I spend the day outside, I definitely choose their SPF 30 Spray Sunscreen instead., but in either case I reapply frequently.

This easy to use, ultra sheer/dry touch continuous spray formula will protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays while enriching your skin with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging.

Sun Bum's premium moisturizing sunscreen will protect you from harmful UVA/UVB rays while enriching your skin with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging. Sun Bum Sunscreens are tested, approved, and recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation (SCF). The SCF is internationally recognized as the educational leader to the public and medical communities related to skin cancer prevention. The SCF does not approve or lend its seal of approval to higher risk products that do not meet their stringent standards.

Sun Bum Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Lotion ($11.99 for 8 oz. from Sun Bum, UltaDermstore, and Target): is a lightweight deeply nourishing lotion that is fast absorbing and non-greasy to the touch. It has a delightful tropical scent that is punctuated by the scents of Cocoa Butter, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. It soothes the skin that has been exposed to the sun, and while I certainly avoided getting a sunburn, I will say that the cooling effect felt fantastic on my skin.
