Favorite Products This Summer!

By Scott Morris

One of our early supporters is traveling around the world on a yacht with her family (including two little ro.sham.bo girls) and blogging about it, so we thought we would share her most recent post about her favorite suncare products! Total coincidence our shades made the list :)...

But before we get to her picks, we wanted to share one of our own. One of our European partners recently sent us the most adorable little UV protectant swimsuit we have ever seen. One piece, easy to put on, super comfortable on baby and so freaking adorable we can't stand it. Check out the pic below and their website. Pics of our own little monster in hers (and her shades, of course) are going to be hitting Instagram and Facebook very soon. It's so nice to have a practical swimwear option for the littles, the two piece bikinis may be cute, but they do nothing for sun protection!!

Protection In The Summer Sun: The Things We LOVE for Sun Protection

 
 
   It’s that time of the year again, where everyone from our home country (Canada) gets to feel a little bit of the warmth that I live in year round. That may sound like I am rubbing it in, but trust me, I am not. We live in the sun, all the time…downside, I will look like I am 60 years old by my late 30’s where as the rest of you will be maintaining your youthful looks a little bit longer than me! I have not given up though, there are many products/brands out there that we love, that keep us protected from the sun, and are helping to keep me (and our kids) from getting too wrinkly before need be. With summer in full swing I wanted to share some of these with you guys, our marvellous readers, so that you can get the best protection as well.


Sunscreens

 
We are long time lovers of this brand. It feels like their products are made with us in mind. They have two lines of sunscreens, one for winter sports and one for water sports. (Because the sun reflects off of these elements in different ways you need different types of protections.) Before they had just their white zinc based face creams, but they have recently added some new products to their line and we love those too. They have a new body sunscreen and this is the BEST smelling sunscreen we have ever worn. It smells a bit like cologne, that suits both men and women, and it smells soon good. We have even had others asking us what that great smell was. They also now have a brown zinc face cream, so you don’t have to feel like you are hiding your current tan. And a lip sunscreen, which is smartly paired with their zinc face cream container making it so you have all your face protection in one tiny and practical container.
 
 

 
Who hasn’t heard of this great company. They love being in the sun just as much as us and have made their slogan, “Protect Your Lazy Ass”, which sounds about right! These guys have everything you need to protect your skin from SPF15-50, and also Cool Down creams in case you forgot to reapply! Their sunscreens smell like summer-in-a-bottle, or pina coladas, however you want to see it (those are synonymous aren’t they!). They also have their Baby Bum line, which we especially love for our sensitive-skinned daughters, which is being reformulated to offer kids the best protection for their young skin (this stuff smells like cupcakes according to our girls). New to their products is a line of hair products to wash and protect that hair of yours, which spends just as much time in the sun as your skin does. So protect it all and go have fun in the sun. 
 
The girls love sunscreen time!
Sunglasses
 
These glasses used to be reserved for the littlest of kids and I was sad when our daughters outgrew theirs. So I was so excited to learn that they have now added “junior” sizes. These kids sunglasses have great style while protecting the little ones eyes from the sun. But our favourite part about them is how bendy the arms are. Forget those rigid sunglasses that kids always fuss with, these ones have flexible arms so they don’t squeeze your kids’ brain or annoy them. Our girls love their. And anyone who can make a product that looks this cute, protects them, and that they want to wear, I am totally on board with!
