Have you heard of Baby Banz before? I have known about their childrens sunglasses for a few years - but I had no idea about all the other amazing products. Baby Banz was founded in 2001, and originally hit the market in 2002. They are winners of the iparenting Media award! They are members of the InfantSEE Family Tree, and also have approval by the Melanoma International Foundation.
I recently had the opportunity to review the Banz Sunscreen Travel Kit, available from Baby Banz. It comes in a handy little TSA approved ziploc bag, so that everything can stay together. The travel kit is perfect for a day long outing - it comes with sunscreen, after sun aloe gel, lip balm with spf, and hand sanitizer!
I love the fact that they come in portable sizes. You don't need to lug around a huge bottle of sunscreen or sanitizer; and the after sun gel comes in a handy size too! Since it arrives in a TSA approved bag, you can put it in your carry on if your travelling and not need to worry about leakage. If your not travelling, you can still throw it in your diaper bag, purse or back pack and not worry about leaking!
Features (I have copied these from the website and added in my thoughts in bold/italics)
Sunscreen - Aloe Gator® SPF30 sunblock is oil- and PABA-free so it’s easy on your skin. It’s non-greasy, water-resistant, and dries quickly. Convenient Travel Size Carabiner Clip Bottle Great for any outdoor or water sport. UVA/UVB protection, SPF 30. Unscented. I loved the fact that it came in such a handy size! I did find it a little thick to put on, but once it was on I didn't notice it. Since it is unscented, it doesn't have any after smell to it. The carabiner is a great feature; allows you to keep it attached to a belt loop, stroller, purse strap or keychain! Both my boys have sensitive skin, and were able to tolerate this sunscreen, which is pretty big around our house.
Lip Balm - Moisturizes and protects lips from dryness and sun damage. Cherry flavored. PABA free formula with added Aloe and Vitamin E. I think this is my favorite product from the travel kit. I LOVE the lip balm. It made my lips feel so soft, and since it has an SPF in it, it helps to protect them from sun damage - something I know I often forget about. My oldest son loved it also - he thought it smelled great and loved the fact that he could wear "lipstick".
Aloe Gator After Sun Lotion -This rich formulation of soothing moisturizing ingredients makes AFTER SUN LOTION the very best protection against the effects of exposure to sun and wind. Its 9 botanical extract soften the skin, while the Aloe Vera and Vitamin E restore moisture, promote healing and help prevent peeling. I loved having the convenient aloe after sun lotion. I often forget to moisturize when we come home from a day out, and having it in the travel kit allowed me to do it before we even got in the car. It soothes the skin and leaves it feeling soft - what more can you ask?
Hand Sanitizer - Moisturizing Jojoba Beads for Dry Hands Allows you to Clean and Soften Hands in One Application
Kills 99.9 % of all Bacteria. 62% Alcohol Having kids has made me realize how important hand sanitizers are. It's such a great thing to keep in my bag for when we are out and about and aren't able to wash our hands. I love the smell - it doesn't have a super strong alcohol smell to it; the scent is subtle and appealing! There are tiny jojoba beads in it which help with moisturizing and helps to keep the alcohol in it from drying out your skin!
