Sun Bum Review & Giveaway

There are three things that are extremely important to me in the summer months.  Must do’s and must have’s….

  1. Slurpees… yes those frozen concoctions you all know and love. I prefer pina colada and coke flavors. It takes me back to my adolescence. Mmmm I can almost taste the brain freeze.
  2. Purchasing a cute bathing suit. I’ve been on a quest to find a perfect bathing suit, sans halter top. The halters hurt my neck. Maybe the “girls” are too much for my neck– who knows.
  3. Finding a sunscreen that protects my family’s skin– but does not smell like a medicine cabinet. I am so excited to tell EVERYONE I have found it!

Sun Bum is going to take the beaches by storm y’all…. It smells like sun screen should- Paradise in bottle. A little coconut, perhaps a bit of banana, maybe a little mango, but a whole lotta yum. Aside from the deliciousness in a bottle, Sun Bum protects. Did you know that one in five of us will get skin cancer due to sun exposure? That’s more than all other cancers combined. Scary. But by using sun care products regularly, we can reduce the risk by up to 80%.

Sun Bum goes on smooth and silky, not sticky. The kids looove the nice scent too– so the daily dose of sunscreen wasn’t as hectic (no screaming moms). They didn’t fight it. They must have been one with the Sun Bum….

the chitlens at the beach..... Sun Bum protected.

Sun Bum had lots of products for the beach going family. Lip balms that taste and smell like bananas, to sunscreen made with pure zinc oxide. I especially love that the company not only provides customers with great product, but they give back as well. They are the official skincare of the Surfers with Autism, and they stand with Boarding for Breast Cancer as their Official Sun Care Partner.

Would you like to give Sun Bum a try?! I thought so. The products are found at surf shops around the country and online. The nearest ones to me are at SurfRide, Southcoast, and Sun Diego’s.

But one lucky sun goddess will win some Sun Bum of their very own!
