Beach Bag of Banana Boat Suncreen Products

Posted on May 6, 2009 at 7:45AM

Banana Boat blue and yellow beach bag with orange Banana Boat products and blue water bottle sitting in front of itHealth and Wellness Wednesday's Giveaway is brains on beauty!  One lucky reader will win a Beach Bag 'O Beauty filled with Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen products. 

We know that some of our readers don't think they need to apply sunscreen, but consider this:  If skin cancer doesn't scare the bejesus out of you, maybe vanity will:  Exposure to sun causes most of the wrinkles and age spots on our faces.  One woman at age 40 who has protected her skin from the sun actually has the skin of a 30-year-old! 

Banana Boat products have been tested in the sun, not just the lab -- and tested on us!  The products are also an excellent option for outdoor sports enthusiasts who need to grip their equipment.  Tennis players will love that your racquet stays in your hand and not on the other side of the court.   We tested golf clubs, tennis racquet's, iPods and we maintained a velcro-like grip on our equipment.

Although we give Banana Boat products the Antiaging Award, the products contain avobenzone for complete broad-spectrum protection, but may not be appropriate for sensitive skin. Experts say that physical blockers -- titanium dioxide and zinc oxide -- are gentler and better suited to sensitive skin.

What's in the Bag O' Beauty?

  • Banana Boat beach bag
  • Banana Boat water bottle
  • Two New Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen Sticks SPF UVB 50
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance Suncreen Lip Blam SPF UVB 50
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance Continuous Spray Sunscreen SPF UVB 30
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance Faces Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF UVB 30
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance Broad Spectrum Suncreen SPF UVB 85
  • Two Banana Boat Sport Performance Continous Spray Sunscreens SPF UVB 50


Answer the question below.  The answer does not affect the outcome.  Giveaway expires on midnight EST on May 14, 2009.  You may enter only one email address for this giveaway. One winner will be picked randomly by Contest Machine and will be notified by email.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the email.  If there is no response, Contest Machine will randomly pick another winner.
