This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Shannon!
Yesterday we spent the day at Disneyland and by 5:00 pm I was freezing (it was in the 50’s). It didn’t help that I had Havianas and a light sweater on. It’s Southern California right? So why in the world am I talking about sunscreen as a gift idea when it’s so obviously winter? Because it’s actually a great stocking stuffer that we all need throughout the entire year. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States with over one million diagnosed every year (The Skin Cancer Foundation). And while I could share a ton of scary facts with you about the disease, I’d rather just encourage you to cover up and protect yourself. Southern California enjoys nearly 200 days of sunshine a year, and that fact alone is more than enough to convince me to wear sunscreen every day. And I don’t have to be sitting at the beach to reap the effects of the sun’s rays. I’ve shared with you how much I like KINeSYS‘ sunscreen. Not only does it provide UVA and UVB sun protection, it’s easy to apply and as natural as sunscreen can get. KINeSYS is oil, alcohol, PABA, and preservative-free. The sunscreen is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and water and sweat-resistant. The kids’ version smells really nice and I LOVE the ability to spray it on (as opposed to trying to spread a cream all over a wiggly toddler). It feels a little oily going on, but once your skin absorbs it you won’t even notice it. For more information, check out my full review here. You can purchase KINeSYS sunscreen directly from the site or from retailers nationwide. Win It! One of you will win a 4 oz Kid’s Spray & 1oz Hydrating Moisturizer w/SPF 15. Simply head on over to the site and take a look around. Come back here and leave me a comment with an interesting fact you found on the site. Comments will close on December 7, 2009 at 10 PM PST.
