Summer is finally here! Like everyone else, I enjoy spending most of my time outside, now that the weather is beautiful. But before I decided to hit the beach this season, I figured I might as well stock up on some heavy duty sunscreen. I had been burned pretty severely last year, and with the knowledge we have on skin cancer, I wasn't about to let that happen again. I came across The Fruit of the Earth-Sunscreen with Aloe SPF 50 while browsing through Walmart. Normally, I probably would have went with the top name brands at their top dollars, yet I decided to grab this one since it was on sale for $6. For that price you really can't go wrong! The lotion came in a 355mL bottle, designed with ridges on the sides for easy handling. The sunscreen is water resistant, protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and is also Hypoallergenic. The lotion like all others, must be applied 15-30 mins prior to heading out in the sun. The SPF 50 means that you are able to spend an additional 50 mins in the sun longer than if you had no sunscreen on whatsoever.
I definitely enjoy this product! It was easy to apply, didn't have any strong fragrances and it protected me from burning in the sun. The only minor deffect was that it did leave me a little greasy after I applied it, however, what lotion doesn't really? Also, be careful and make sure the lotion is applied all over, as it can sometimes be difficult to tell what areas were missed.
