BADGER Sunscreen Feature & Giveaway!

As the weather starts to warm up, I get more concerned about how I'm going to keep my girls safe from the sun.  We do love our vitamin D but the harmful rays simply aren't worth the risk.  Over the next couple weeks I'm going to share with you my two very favorite brands when it comes to sunscreen. 

Up first:  BADGER
I started using this after the birth of my first baby, about eight years ago.  Of course as an infant we weren't out in the sun much but by the time she reached two, I realized I better start doing some research to find the best option for our family.  I thought I was using a safe sunscreen, I was wrong.  If you are using a brand that you think is safe, it's a great idea to check the EWG guide which rates the best choices for your family. 
What I love most about Badger is that it's safe, effective and hypoallergenic for our sensitive skin.  It provides UVA/UVB protection and is bio degradable as well.  Badger sent me over two tubes to try, the first is their Daily Broad Spectrum Kids SPF 30.  100% Certified Natural and 87% Certified Organic, this 4 oz tube has been reformulated to improve consistency and application.  It's simple and safe which combines Zinc Oxide with Organic Sunflower Oil-rich in antioxidant Vitamin E.  I must admit the BADGER block I've used in the past years have been difficult at times to apply but I always felt it was worth the trouble and the screaming kid, if I was applying the very safest option for my little ones.  When we applied this newly formulated cream, I was shocked at how easy it was to apply.  It is still thick but the oil at the top that used to come out prior to the cream is gone and it seems to be more blended and easy to spread.  That means no more unhappy kiddos.  The Non-Nano Uncoated Zinc Oxide offers the safest protection that I know of and since Badger doesn't test on animals, it makes me more happy.  Finally, the Tangerine and Vanilla scent is wonderful and subtle.  We will be reaching for this tube all Summer long.  It's perfect for daily use!
Next, we tried the Badger Active Broad Spectrum Kids SPF 30.  This one smelled just as good (think creamcicle!) and is also water resistant for up to 40 minutes.  This is perfect for the beach, pool and sprinkler.  As a Mom who is always looking for the best option when it comes to sunscreen, these are two I most certainly will be looking for this Summer! 
I'm happy to let you know that BADGER is offering these two Kids Sunscreens for one lucky Barefoot by the Sea reader!  Simply fill out the form below and enter!  Can't wait?  Visit BADGER and check out their full line of products including their sunscreen products!
