Summer sun is coming very soon. To be honest…Bill got a nasty burn on his arms, neck, legs, and nose this past Saturday…and it’s mid-April! The sun is a concern for me and my family…I don’t want them to get burned or have other problems down the line for a few minutes or a nice tan! And if you know me, that’s saying a lot as I was brown all summer long when I was younger. Times change, and now I’m always on the lookout for the best sun protection I can get my hands on. It seems that I’ve found it…Blue Lizard.
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen originated in Australia, where standards for sunscreen are the highest in the world. Even though Blue Lizard is now manufactured in the U.S. (in Johnson City, TN), the company still adheres to those strict standards to offer the most advanced formulations available in sun protection. Using only the highest quality ingredients, Blue Lizard delivers a very safe sunscreen that’s clinically proven, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a mineral-based, water-resistant, SPF 30+ formulation. Blue Lizard offers five sunscreen formulas available: Baby, Sensitive, Face, Sport & Regular – all are broad spectrum UVA/UVB coverage.
What I love about the product is that it is very clear that sensitive skin and products suitable for your little ones is a major priority for them. Baby & Sensitive are paraben-free, chemical-free and fragrance-free; Face is also oil-free and all formulations are mineral-based containing Zinc Oxide. Sport & Regular are extremely water resistant. These formulas meet Australian standards of staying on in 240 minutes of whirlpool water!! That’s amazing, especially given it’s all-natural goodness.
The Lizard has the stamina in the pool and out…he even came up to NYC and visited!
Yes, the sunscreen itself is awesome, but even their bottle is thoughtful and ahead of the curve, helping to keep me and the kids safe! Their patented BPA free Smart Bottle™ changes color when exposed to UV light and the lids on the 3oz tubes change color, so don’t forget to take them outdoors to experience the fun!
The kids loved it…no weird smells, no burning, and they couldn’t get enough of the lizard and the bottle when it turned blue. It was a big hit and a great chance to teach them about the sun and how quickly it can make them burn.
It’s no wonder Blue Lizard is the brand most recommended by pediatricians, dermatologists, pharmacists, and moms that know a thing or two, nationwide!!! It’s ranked as one of the top sunscreens by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), too.
