Keeping Your Kids Protected this Summer with Panama Jack
Panama Jack sent over some samples and I was eager to give them all a try. My family has very pale skin, so we go through mass amounts of sunscreen yearly, but we had never given Panama Jack a try. Here is my honest review of all 5 Panama Jack products I was given.
Continuous Clear Sunscreen Spray SPF 15 – This sunscreen is great. I used it numerous times and every single application was perfect and I never had to rub it in (yippie for no sunblock hands)! The spray dries very quick and is not greasy plus it goes on evenly, I loved that about this spray. The continuous spray does not rub off easy either, you need to actually wash it off your body. I found that it has an amazing tropical scent that I really enjoyed. It did not have that overbearing scent that most sunblocks have. One thing worth mentioning, if you have never used a continuous spray sunblock, it will make your skin feel tight when you first apply this. It is perfectly normal and that feeling fades pretty quick.
Vanilla Lip Balm SPF 45 – This lip balm left my lips silky and smooth, it has a pleasant vanilla scent. I noticed every time I put it on it had a slight sunblock taste, but after a minute that went away and I no longer noticed it. I may just be sensitive to this and you may never taste anything, but figured if I was being honest that was worth mentioning. My lips never got chapped or burned while wearing this lip balm, so it did what is advertised.
Faces Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30+ – This sunblock goes on smooth like a lotion. It was not thick and dried sheer. It was easy to rub in. I used this on a few occasions, on myself and my children and it worked well. It states that it is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. I re applied closer towards the hour mark, just because we are so fair skinned and we burn easy. None of us ever got burnt while using this. I liked that it is Hypo Allergenic. This Faces sunscreen has a light scent that I liked. I am very pleased with this product. Another great feature is that it has protection with CoQ10 antioxidant, it protects from environmental stressors. This makes it good for every day use.
Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 – This is a non greasy lotion sunblock. A little goes a long way with this lotion. I used a bit too much the first time, but quickly learned I did not need a ton when applying it to my skin. It also took a little more rubbing in then I was used to. This sunscreen worked well and did not wash away easy. It also has added CoQ10, green tea and Vitamin E. It is a very lightly scented formula that I did not notice being on me, which is nice in some setting where you do not want to smell like you just came from the pool or beach.
GREEN ICE – This is pure Aloe Vera gel. I will admit I was careless one day and went to Disneyland with my kids and lathered everyone up in sunblock, but myself and I got one heck of a sunburn (lesson learned). This just so happened to be the very day I received this shipment and oh what a lifesaver this was. I quickly rubbed this gel on myself. It immediately cooled my skin. It has a very fresh clean scent and was not sticky at all. I used this gel all throughout the night and following day and I am happy to say my severely sunburned skin did not peel, it actually tanned, thought not a tan I wanted (Farmers tan on one arm is not so desirable), but at least I was spared from the yucky peeling. This is going to be nice to keep around this summer as we spend many hours outdoors in our pool.
All 5 of these products are nice, but out of them all I really have 2 favorites, the Continuous Clear Sunscreen Spray and the GREEN ICE.
