    Thanks for giving us a chance to review the Banana Boat sunscreen we were given the Simply protect kids SPF 50 spray and lotion the spray was so much more easer to put on as you just had to spray it on no mess as I find the lotion is a lot more messy to use I loved how the sunscreen is 50+ and has 25% fewer ingredients I liked how both the lotion and the spray were not greasy and the smell was not to strong it was a bit of a pain that you have to wait 20 minutes before you start swimming for it to dry. The instruction’s on the bottle and spray are easy to follow and I liked how it gave you an idea how much you needed to use for the different ages

    We received the spray and lotion Banana boat SPF 50 and so so far so good!
    We live on a rural property so my 2 boys spend a bit of time outside. My 3 year old has never been a big fan of having sunblock applied but the spray was a novelty and he thought it was fun, success! I felt confident applying it to my 8 month old knowing that it had less nasty ingredients added than other sunblocks.
    Neither was greasy and my hands were not left greasy after generously applying.
    I like that the packaging is very clear and informative.
    It is pleasant smelling and applies smoothly and evenly.
    After using this product over a long and hot Canterbury show weekend I would recommend this sunblock to other Mums and will be happy to continue using it on both my boys.
    Thank you for the opportunity to trial this brand of kids sunblock.

    We received our Banana Boat Simply Protect Kids Sunscreen on Tuesday and the kids have been wearing it every day to school. Yesterday was the first real test it has as my 13 year old was having a party and her and her girlfriends were going swimming. Both the spray on and lotion were used. the girls did find the spray on greasy and prefer the lotion, but both worked as they should as all the girls were in the water for some time then out on the grass sunbathing for a while, so out in the sun for at least 2 hours and no one go burnt. YAY. I like the fact that this sunscreen has less ingredients and it is mild for kids.

    We received our Banana Boat Simply Protect Kids Sunscreen SPF50+ lotion about a week or so ago. Since then, the Gizzy sun’s been out in force most days, so we‘ve been able to give this sunscreen a good testing!
    Miss 8’s been jumping in our pool after school most days, and she’s spent time on the beach today (Saturday), having a bit of a play in the sand and a paddle. We’ve been applying this sunscreen liberally and slip, slop, slapping regularly. Yesterday, the temp here in Gizzy was 25 degrees – hot, blue skies and sunny. And the sun’s been beating down on us again today!
    We were lucky enough to receive the spray-on version of this sunscreen too. With little ones, the spray-on version is very handy and convenient to apply. But we found it’s been easy to apply the lotion as well. I guess it just comes down to what you prefer – we’ve found both versions of this product equally easy to use. The texture of this sunscreen is not overly greasy like some sunscreens can be, so it’s not too sticky or messy to apply.
    Banana Boat are also very conscientious about providing decent, clear instructions with their product. I.e., they advise applying this sunscreen 20 mins before sun exposure. You can easily do this indoors while you’re preparing to go out. They also advise to reapply it every two hours & to ‘splodge’ it on (i.e don’t be frugal when it comes to sunscreen – ultimately your child’s precious skin health should come first).

    Not only have we found this sunscreen to be very effective on Miss 8’s skin, it’s also very gentle and non-irritating.
    In the past, her skin has reacted a bit to certain sunscreens, but this has not been so with Banana Boat Simply Protect Kids Sunscreen SPF50+. It contains no added oils or fragrances and has been dermatologically tested. ‘Simply Protect’ is a good name for this sunscreen as it’s simply protecting your child’s skin – it’s not full of unnecessary ingredients. There’s no overpowering smell either – it’s gentle on the nose as well as on the skin!

    Miss 8’s skin has been absolutely fine since we’ve been using this product, and most importantly, she’s had no sunburn!! Therefore, I’d recommend this sunscreen for all kids (little kids and big kids alike) as it’s effective and gentle on the skin at the same time.

    I’m scoring Banana Boat ‘five bananas out of five’ for this perfect sunscreen!

    Camping is our favourite summer activity, along with taking dinner down to the beach after work and school. We live in the sunniest region of NZ so are very aware we need to protect our children’s skin. We’ve entered in the Banana Boat ocean series so would be awesome to try their products too 🙂

    A day at the beach, water fights and hosting family BBQ’s are some of out favourite summer activities!

    my 3 kids aged 8,7 and 3 are always out in the sun and sunblock is a must before they go to school and preschool. we would love to trial

    Our fave family activity is going to the beach. The kids love playing in the water, building sandcastles, collecting shells, walking the dog and picnics. I’m very conscious of protecting the whole family’s skin from the sun, especially the kids and teaching them good sunsmart habits.

  10. 10/11/2018 at 12:53 pm

    as a family we do a lot of outdoor swimming at the community pools as well as a few backyard activities. Water is a major part of summer for us and would love to trial a product that works best for that!

  11. 09/11/2018 at 10:26 pm

    We have a 7months old who’s nearly 8months old and would love to trial sunscreen. With summer coming up, we are trying to find one that will work well with his skin and I also always need sun screen or I burn

  12. kylieD 08/11/2018 at 8:28 pm

    We love hanging out together outside at home, I go in the garden and the kids chase each other with waterballoons and supersoakers! Barbeques every night!

  13. gysmo 08/11/2018 at 7:56 pm

    My children 10 and 12 years love spending as much time as possible outside during the summer months. Sunscreen is a must. Some do not agree with their skin, love to try this range to see if compatible.

  14. nikkij 08/11/2018 at 1:46 pm

    We love to go to the beach and play in the waves and as she gets older we get more and more confident in the water

  15. chefettenz 08/11/2018 at 10:00 am

    We love the outdoors from walking the dog to going to the beach, water play or just at the park with the kids. Mr 4 would be out doors everyday rain or shine he cant wait to get out side

  16. IceKiwi 08/11/2018 at 9:51 am

    4 kids, beach, sand, surf, lakes, kayaking, waterfights, waterfall walks and cycling for fun we pack so much into our summers and are always in need of a quality sunscreen that delivers on quality. Would be awesome to trial this product.
