It has been soooo hot the last few weeks here in Southern California. We’ve been so busy that we’ve not had a chance to get to the pool or beach as often as we’d like. With skin cancer cases on the rise we try to be very diligent in remembering to wear sunscreen, regardless of what we’re doing. There are a ton of brands on the market…some targeted for babies and children, others targeted for adults, and still others targeted towards athletes.
I recently had an opportunity to try Race Face, a sunscreen created with the racing fan in mind. Now, we’re not racers (can you tell), but I do think this is something athletes would be very interested in. The sunscreen has an SPF of 30 and is available in a 2-ounce version (great for traveling) and a 6-ounce continuous spray bottle. I actually prefer a spray to get a more even distribution and to keep my hands from getting too greasy. The person in the house getting the most out of this is my husband. His fair skin causes him to burn very easily so I’ve been having him carry the 2-ounce bottle in his car with him. And I have to say it works (when he uses it).
Racing fans might appreciate the fact that the bottles feature some of the most famous drivers including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne, and Dale Earnhardt Sr. To be very frank, I wouldn’t necessarily buy this for the racers but I would recommend it for it’s ease of use and SPF coverage.
I’m a huge proponent of safe cosmetics and went to Skin Deep to evaluate the Race Face Sunscreen we received. It was listed as a 5 which isn’t horrible (it’s just right in the middle). Sunscreen is a very difficult skin care product to research and purchase if you’re concerned about chemicals. It must be effective in preventing sun damage but safe enough not to pose a risk.
Race Face is available at retailers nationwide.
