Blue Lizard Sunscreen prize package [giveaway]

Winter is over and the sun is starting to show it's warm self again. I've been outside a few times hiking and the like and have already been burned a couple times. That didn't take long!

It's time to start applying the sunscreen, and I've turned to Blue Lizard. It's dermatologist recommended and hereby Giveaway Guy recommended too.

I recently had the pleasure of trying the sensitive sunscreen as Blue Lizard is ranked as one of the top sunscreens by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). If it's a top sunscreen, color me interested (or blue). The stuff isn't blue, don't worry.


The latest and greatest formula is paraben-free, chemical-free, and fragrance-free. Ignore old reviews you come across saying otherwise because the new formula is safe and Blue Lizard has made sensitivity a priority.

Blue Lizard's mission is to educate about the dangers of sun exposure and skin cancer prevention. Transparent about their products, they list every ingredient and provide the best resources to help consumers understand what makes an effective sunscreen. As they state on their website:
Using only the highest quality ingredients, Blue Lizard delivers clinically proven, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a mineral-based, water-resistant, SPF 30+ formulation. Our patented BPA-free Smart Bottle™ changes colors in the presence of harmful UV rays, reminding you to cover up.

This sunscreen is effective for my sensitive skin. Without sunscreen I'd be burned after 15 minutes in the sun, but applying Blue Lizard to my face and body just once will have me safely protected from the sun for the entire day. It doesn't itch or feel greasy. If anything, my skin feels soft. Be sure to apply it to your skin when it's dry, as stated on the back of the bottle. You may have trouble rubbing it into wet skin.

The active ingredients are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which are high quality minerals for broad spectrum UVA and UVB skin protection. I'm no scientist, but I hear these are good ingredients to have for ultimate protection. Hey, if dermatologists recommend it then I'm on board.

  13. My Husband has an allergy to most suntan lotion, we went on a tropical vacation last fall and I did a lot of research on sun protection and that's when I found Blue Lizard. I brought the Blue Lizard with us on vacation and he had no problems with it and it does give you really good coverage, this is the only brand I will buy now.
