Look out for this image starting August 13th!
With only a few weeks left of summer, making the most of our remaining sunny days is a top priority. Everyone knows that summer and sun-safety go hand in hand, but finding the right sunscreen for your skin type can sometimes be a challenge. On our search for the season’s top skincare performers, we’re happy to announce that we’ve found a keeper: Sun Bum Original Spray Sunscreen.
Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation, Sun Bum is a small, family-oriented company based out of Cocoa Beach, Florida – one of the sunniest cities in the United States. Their wide selection of sun care products are vegan and gluten-free, and their sunscreens range in SPF from 15-70. Keep reading for our review!
We tested: Sun Bum SPF 30 Original Spray Sunscreen
Where to find it: Shoppers Drug Mart, approximately: $19.00 CAD
How to use: Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure, and 80 minutes after sweating/swimming or immediately after towel drying.
We loved Sun Bum’s silky smooth texture and the spray bottle’s easy application. The fact that it doesn’t clog pores is a major bonus for breakout-prone skin, and the tropical scent reminded us of a Caribbean getaway. The only thing missing? A piña colada delivered directly to spot in the sun. After a full day’s use, we were pleased with Sun Bum’s level of protection – no burnt, peeling skin over here! We also liked that the formula contains vitamin E, a known free-radical neutralizing antioxidant. Preventing skin aging is a lot easier than combatting it!
The spray bottle feature may not be the best if you’re planning on applying this product directly to your face. Luckily, Sun Bum offers a full range of products in different formats, meaning that there’s a tailored form of sun protection for everyone. We’d recommend going with the lotion option for sensitive areas.
Overall Impression – 5 out of 5!
