Solise Review and Giveaway

Solise has a very cool concept under it’s belt. I had no idea this was even possible– sunscreen within body was and hand wash!

Instead of putting on the daily sunscreen, it is automatically put on your skin by washing!

The concept of Solise was born out of Dale Lillard’s desire to protect his four children from the harmful effects of the Arizona sun. He was frustrated by the limited sunscreen products available and dreaded the daily struggle to apply sunscreen to his children.Solise Body Wash With Sunscreen

Dale searched drugstore shelves and magazine advertisements hoping to find a product that would make this daily chore more pleasant. He thought that if he could somehow combine his children’s daily bath with the application of sunscreen, life around his house might just get a while lot easier. In pursuit of his novel idea, Dale spoke to chemists, body-product formulators, chemical engineers and scientists who study soaps and cleansing. They all assured him that his concept was not possible.

Dale refused to give up. Together with his oldest son, Tres, Dale began researching and testing sunscreen-body wash combinations, hoping to create a workable product. Their inspiration Thomas Edison’s famous quote: “I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” But it was not until they asked their neighbor, Michael Doyle, an engineer and inventor with decades of experience, to apply his genius to Dale’s concept that a solution was found. Michael developed a multi-phase emulsion system that finally allowed the natural ingredients in Solise to combine brilliantly and effectively with those that provide UVA and UVB sun protection. Solise was born.

I was given the Solise Body Wash and Sunscreen In One to try out and use. I have to say– we haven’t been getting a lot of sun lately here in Southern California, but at least I knew I was protected even on the overcast days!

The Body Wash has a very light soapy scent that I liked- even the kids didn’t mind it. The directions say: Use in the shower or bath, apply generously and evenly over the entire body including face and neck, lather and rinse– then towel dry as usual. Pretty simple! There was no battles with the white stuff getting into the kids eyes, no mess actually. It was easy! No the sunscreen of SPF 15 WILL NOT protect you at the beach on a long hot summer day, but yes it will protect you on those errand days out and about.
