Free Giveaway: Beyond Coastal Sunscreen Pack!

Our family loves to play outside!  Parks, playgrounds, pools, sandboxes, and garden hoses are quickly becoming our favorite fun activities.  Of course, since we live in Houston, we get the sunny heat for more than half the year...and we love it!  I snapped this picture the other day of the kids playing in the backyard.  I won't be surprised if Harry does the monkey bars before anyone else!  We spend at least an hour outside every day, and the sun is usually up well before 7:00 am!

Since our whole family loves to spend time outside and we are all pretty fair-skinned, I was thrilled for the chance to sample Beyond Coastal's sunscreen products!  I love that the products are all natural, contain no parabens or petroleum, and block both UVA and UVB ultraviolet rays.  Many sunscreens will block UVB, but not all will block UVA.  UVA may not give you a sunburn, but it does penetrate deep into the skin and may contribute to premature aging.  I also love that it includes natural ingredients like rose hip oil, green tea leaf extract, coconut and jojoba oil, vitamins, aloe vera, and more to nourish, repair, and hydrate the skin.

The sunscreens go on nice and thick, but absorb quickly.  I especially love the sunscreen chapstick!  I was able to sample five of their products in a Sun Care Pack, and I am happy to recommend them all!  Even more exciting, one lucky person will win the very same Sun Care Pack and get to try the amazing products pictured above!  Use the Rafflecopter Form below to enter this free giveaway!  Enter soon--the giveaway is open until midnight on Saturday, May 26th!

Disclaimer:  Beyond Coastal provided products both for me to review and for this giveaway!  There was no other compensation provided.  All opinions are 100% mine, and I will never recommend something I don't love!

We have a pool so we love to swim swim swim. I got fried today, even with sunscreen and shade. Fun times!

Nutty Mom May 18, 2012 at 9:23 PM  

You might add that according to the 2012 EWG guide, Beyond Coastal scores a "low hazard" for toxicity! Which is saying a lot, because I've never seen a suncreen score better than "moderate hazard".

Jansen Family May 18, 2012 at 9:37 PM  

Nutty Mom, Isn't summer great?!! The EWG score is a great point...I think it's a low hazard because its ingredients are natural, safe, and effective! I'm really happy with all their products!!

Love playing in the sprinkler/hose.

cepsbaby May 19, 2012 at 12:37 AM  

my favorite summer thing is cook outs with family and friends and sitting by the fire.

Veronica and Daniel May 19, 2012 at 5:55 AM  

Our favorite summer activity is going to the lake. swimming, hiking, boating...pretty much anything at the lake. So sunscreen is a MUST!

J. Olson May 19, 2012 at 9:42 AM

Our favorite thing to do in the summer is exploring the great outdoors. Sometimes that means a bug hunt or a nature walk. Other times it's just playing in the sand box!

corey May 20, 2012 at 8:35 PM  

We enjoy walking through the park in the middle of our small town or through the graveyard that's directly across from our driveway - we hope that this keeps them unafraid of the graveyard/spookiness that all the kids tell them of. Walk through in the light and not make a big deal about it - so far so good. We pretty much do everything together in the summer.

Marcy May 21, 2012 at 1:30 AM  

My son loves to just play outside in the park.
