If you're hitting the beaches, better be ready for all that sun exposure with a bottle or two of sunblock in your bag.
Me? I'm 100% ready for all that sun because this box brought me all the sun protection that my kids and I will need this summer. And it's good from face to toe...
I was excited just seeing the Beach Hut box because I knew it would contain sunblock. But what kind of sunblock did they have this time?
Just as a background, I use sunblock every day on top of my facial moisturizer. I am more conscious of applying this because with age, skin gets easily damaged by the sun's rays and the damage is oftentimes irreversible. When I am indoors, I can go as low as SPF 15 but if I know I will be stepping out of the house, I use my SPF45 sunblock. In fact, I've got an unopened sunblock with SPF65. And really, summers these past years have been pretty bad!
Opening the Beach Hut box, I got the biggest surprise because this was what was inside:
Yes, my kids are the ones who will go wild using the frisbee and the waterproof camera. Me? I'm more excited to use the two sunblocks that came with the box.
Beach Hut Max 100
The highest SPF I have ever seen is SPF 75, which Beach Hut also has. Now, they're the first to be brave enough to announce an SPF 100! Wow.
This is what Beach Hut's website says about their SPF 100 product:
It’s here! Experience extreme high spf protection without the messy and oily feel like other lotion sunblock. Beach Hut Max SPF 100++ w/ micronized zinc oxide is uber light on skin, quick drying, and gives you that non messy, non sticky sheer feeling while offering up to 99% maximum protection from UVA/UVB rays that causes sunburn, skin cancer and skin darkening. This summer, don’t settle for anything less than 100, get the new Beach hut Max 100 unbelievably light lotion sunblock.
Beach Hut Face SPF 65
My problem with regular sunblock for the beach is always my face. Many of these products are not only greasy to the touch but when some get in your eyes, they sting like hell! I'm really looking forward to using Beach Hut Face SPF 65 because 2 things caught my eye on the label: "Will not sting eyes" and "Made for sensitive skin". That's exactly what I need!
Here's the official description from the website:
Beach Hut Face is specifically designed for sensitive skin. It is specially formulated with organic zinc oxide for an ultra mild yet complete sun protection that is proven and tested hypoallergenic. It is made with organic sunscreen that keeps the skin moisturized and protected from harmful UVA/UVB rays while still being safe and gentle on skin.
And for the kids, here's one that didn't come with the box but which I got earlier from Beach Hut people -- Beach Hut Kids SPF 65. It's hypoallergenic and comes as a spray so it's easy to apply. I would suggest though that for their face, use the Face SPF 65 rather than this spray so it doesn't get in their eyes.
Bring that sun on!
