“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Neutrogena. I received samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
I was beginning to think we were not going to see summer this year. Every year we go camping from the beginning of May through the end of October. But this year there has been one emergency after another and this weekend is the first full weekend we have been able to get here. And boy is it a beautiful weekend.
We spend a huge amount of time once we get here, at the beach, pool, cliff walking etc… And we take skincare with the sun very seriously. We have to. Otherwise we would suffer significantly from all our sun exposure every year.
We rely on Neutrogena Suncare products. They are effective and reliable and we must always keep some on hand to make sure we are never caught short without protection and it must be protection that lasts!
Teaching our children to care for their skin and appropriate ways to protect them is vital. I am sure our children will maintain the type of lifestyle they have been raised in. Plus our daughter does horseback riding. She is out in the blazing sun for hours at a time while riding and must have a strong, long lasting sunscreen to last the entire time.
My daughter and I suffer from sensitive skin and eczema. No one else in the family does but not only do we need to worry about skincare and sun care we need to worry about allergies and eczema. It can often be a delicate balance but it is one that Neutrogena has under control. As with any sunscreen it is important to remember that re-application may be necessary depending on time of day, year and duration.
The National Eczema Association has recently awarded its Seal of Acceptance to five Neutrogena Sun products. The five products include:
– NEUTROGENA® Pure & Free® Baby Faces Ultra Gentle Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45+
– NEUTROGENA® Pure & Free® Baby Sunscreen Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 60
– NEUTROGENA® Pure & Free® Baby Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+
– NEUTORGENA® Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+
– NEUTROGENA® Pure & Free™ Liquid Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Neutrogena uses naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients and provides adults, children and babies with appropriate sensitive skin and eczema options. Sunburns definitely increase the possibility of skin cancer later in life. I worry about that often. When I was a teenager I made some seriously unsafe skin choices with the sun. I remember some occasions where I suffered from very serious sunburns. It is definitely one of those – If I knew then what I know now moments while I am raising my kids to be informed and safe. 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer yet only 20% still use SPF daily.
For the reasons stated with my daughter and I – My favorite is the Sensitive Skin formula. It is perfect for us – we don’t end up with any itchiness, the scent doesn’t bother our allergies, and it doesn’t go on oily. I find it even perfect for using on our face.
Neutrogena Sun Care products are available through Walmart both in-store and online. For more information please visit Walmart.com.
