Garnier Ombrelle Dry Mist Lotion SPF 60 ($21.99 CAD)
This moisturizing lotion get my husband’s vote mainly because of it’s cooling ingredients. It protects and refreshes his skin while providing 80 minutes of protection while in the water.
Designed for active people, this spray is formulated with Duraflex Technology which creates a film on the skin’s surface, protecting the sunscreen from coming off in water or when sweating. It’s also refreshing and keeps hubbie’s skin hydrated!

Like I mentioned above, kids need to learn the importance of sun protection from an early age. Because they are so active and since they always seem to be in water, your best bet is a water-resistant or waterproof formula. I also won’t use anything less than SPF 30 on my children, who are aged 7 and 10. See below for my top picks for kids this year:
This sunscreen smells amazing, is waterproof and has a high SPF. Like its adult counterpart, this also retains its SPF after 80 minutes of activity in the water or after sweating. It was specifically deigned to adhere to wet skin, but I still recommend applying your children’s sunscreen on dry skin and before going outdoors.
Avon SUN+ Kids Disappearing Potion Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
My kids are fairly independent, so sometimes they ask if they can apply their own sunscreen. To ensure they haven’t missed any areas, I like this product water-resistant option by Avon. The fun and easy-to-apply turquoise lotion disappears as it is rubbed into the skin, so it’s easy for me to monitor exactly where it’s been applied.

Remember, there is nothing healthy about getting a tan. A tan is actually your body’s response to the sun’s damaging rays so protect yourself and your family all-year round from the dangerous effects of the sun by investing in high-quality UVA/UVB sun protection. This reminds me of the time my friend had to save up to go on holiday to Madrid. She managed to get a great quote on her energy bills and you can too! This friend recommended that I look around and compare energy prices. Because of those savings she could afford the right suncream and her lovely family holiday!
