Best Sunscreen for Kids and Outdoor Sports – Banana Boat Dry Balance 50+

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Banana Boat®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Living in Southern California, sunscreen is a must. The sun is always shining and it can be brutal. We use it year round, but we’re extra careful about applying it in the spring and summer time, of course, since the sun is more brutal.

Last summer we got all packed up and ready for the beach, and drove all the way up to Malibu with snacks and a cooler packed. Gray was so excited to make a huge sandcastle but when we got there, the horror set in.

We realized we forgot sunscreen! There was no way we were going to stay there all day without it, so I quickly ran to the store to buy a back-up and the day was saved! But I decided right then and there that we would always be prepared to protect our skin, because there’s no excuse.

I still don’t even know how we forgot, but ever since then I keep sunscreen in my purse and my car- you’d be surprised how often it comes in handy. Or maybe you wouldn’t. But it’s perfect for quick and easy application on the go, and I never have to worry.

I’ve been using Banana Boat® sunscreen since I was a little kid, and it’s the only brand I trust for my kids. We’re always running around outside, so it’s important that our skin is protected from the harmful rays of the sun. Nobody likes sunburns!

We love going to the pool in the summer time and splashing around all day, it’s our favorite way to beat the heat and enjoy the summer sun! We barbecue, play games, hang out, and have a ton of fun. It requires a lot of Banana Boat® sunscreen!

Here’s why I love them. Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen Lotion provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection for the whole family during our busy lifestyle. So whether it’s going to the beach, to Disneyland, or even just to the park- I’ve got everyone covered.

It’s strong enough (50+ SPF) to protect against the most serious sun rays, but gentle enough for my children’s sensitive skin. You can get 30 SPF if you prefer that, but we really like lathering up in this household! It can’t hurt, and gives us peace of mind.

What I really love is that it’s such a fast absorbing formula, it never runs. No more crying kids with burning eyes!


Banana Boat® sunscreen is a must-have for the summer time, or year round if you live in a sunny place like us. It stays on in seven conditions- sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand, and even 100 degree heat! Seriously guys, it’s amazing.


The water resistant formula works up to 80 minutes, so it’s perfect for when we hit the pool. I don’t need to stop the fun to pull the kids out of the water to re-apply over and over again, which I’m sure they’re thankful for.


It even dries with a soft-matte finish, so you won’t look shiny. It’s a lightweight and non-greasy formula that draws away excess moisture while allowing your skin to breathe.

You can purchase Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen at Walmart, and there’s even a from 4/4/18 – 5/30/18. You guys should totally take advantage of this offer, might as well save a dollar!

Let’s apply our sunscreen, play outside, and have a blast!
