Now that the summers are almost gone, the weather is turning cold here. But this year, I enjoyed summers to the fullest. 😀 I love water and beaches (maybe this has something to do with my zodiac 😉 – I am a water sign, Pisces!!!) But first and foremost thing to be taken care of while relaxing on the beach is adequate sun protection. We all know how harmful sun rays are for us and how important sunscreen is, as a part of our skin care regimen. I have heard many good things about SunBum sunscreens and wanted to try them out since so long, but I couldn’t find their sunscreen higher than SPF 30 at my nearby stores. So, when I spotted SPF 70 online, I ordered it that moment itself. 🙂
Let me give you a small intro about the brand. Sun Bum is a small company in Cocoa Beach, Florida which was started in 2010. It is a brand of sun care products specifically formulated for people who love and live in the sun. Sun Bum Sunscreens are also tested, approved and recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation.
This moisturizing sunscreen formula will protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays while enriching your skin with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging.

My Experience with Sun Bum Broad Spectrum SPF 70 Premium Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion:
The sunscreen comes in a yellow-brown tube which has a flip-top cap and the cute monkey mo-tif on the tube. 😉 The cap closes shut but still the tube is pretty huge to be travelled along with. However, I have traveled with the tube and did not face any leakage. 🙂
The sunscreen is white in color and it’s not very thick in consistency. In fact, it does feel like a lotion packed in a tube. 😉 It is very easy to spread and gets absorbed easily into the skin. I have very dry skin, but I do not feel need to use any moisturizer when using this. It takes care of my dry skin’s need. On the other hand, my hubby has normal skin and he too feel’s comfortable using the product.
The sunscreen is not at all greasy and also does not leave any white layer on the skin. It photographs well too and I did not see any whitish cast in the pictures. It did not clog my pores and did not break me out.
Sun Bum Broad Spectrum SPF 70 premium moisturizing sunscreen lotion smells amazingly delicious of coconuts. Though I am not a fan of coconut fragrance, but still, I like this one. It is not too pungent and fades away in sometime.
Coming to the sun protection, I am completely satisfied with the product. I wore this sunscreen for the whole day on the beach, while we were camping (in which we were out in the sun for the whole day!) and even while playing in water. I stayed in water for more than 2 hours and could not reapply it, but it still protected me from any sunburn and tanning, which clearly proves that this sunscreen is water resistant as well. I applied this only on my face and had another sunscreen for my arms and legs (review coming soon 😛 ) and after my fun at beach program, my face was not even a bit tanned and no sunburn too. 😀
