Summer time is quickly coming to an end. As the shelves are cleared of summer products and stocked up with notebooks and back packs many people forget the importance of sunblock. It is still something that we should applying to ourselves and our children on a daily basis. Especially when they go back to school and will be playing outside during peak sunburn hours.
I know that it is a pain applying sunblock to a wiggling child everyday! Creams can get messy and take some extra time (which we never have in the morning hours). There have been days when I leave and totally forget the sunblock causing us to have to run back home. I have found a solution to this dilemma. It is called GO! Screen.
GO!screen is a Zinc Oxide sunscreen with SPF30 that provides safe and powerful broad spectrum protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. It comes in a self dispensing, super soft powder brush. It looks like a make-up brush with the sunblock stored inside, by pushing the button you release the sunblock onto the brush. Then you brush it on your body. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first about the coverage but it did a great job. If you look closely you can see the powder as it goes on the skin. There are no nasty chemicals released and no residue left on the skin.
GO! Screen was developed by a chemist (who is also a mom) who came up with the idea during a family vacation. Her 3 year old son’s eyes became very irritated and blotchy from sunscreen getting in them after being in the pool. She was miles from a store and knew her son needed sun protection. She applied her mineral make-up that contained an SPF of 30 to her son. She said she felt a little weird about putting make-up on him but it worked and there was no more complaints about sunblock. Using her previous experience as a chemist she developed Go!Screen PowderBlock. All of the ingredients are handpicked to make sure they are the safest and most effective.
Benefits of Go! Screen:
- Paraben Free, Talc Free
- Long-lasting UVA/UVB protection
- Chemical-free, mineral sunscreens provide a UV reflective barrier on the skin
- Zinc contains natural anti-inflammatory properties that are ideal for sensitive skin
- 7 simple ingredients
- No waiting – effective immediately.
Each tube contains 300 applications and retails for $26. I have been carrying this around in my bag everywhere I go. I especially love it for my face! This humidity makes my skin oily enough I don’t need any additional shine from a greasy sunblock!
