Do Men Need a Different Defense of Sunscreen than Women?


I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat® Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

My family has a strong love for theme parks! From our youngest child, to the adults in our family; we all have a childlike affection for the fun and atmosphere of theme parks. One huge benefit of choosing a theme park for a summer activity is that you can literally spend the whole entire day having fun! There aren’t many activities like that, that allow me to keep BOTH children entertained for such a long period of time, while still enjoying myself!

There is a downside, however, of theme parks. The sun. If you’ve ever been to a theme park before, you know what I mean. While we try to get there early, before the sun is too potent, we find that as we draw closer to high noon, we are all sticky and sweaty, and sometimes burnt.

While there isn’t much I can do about the stickiness and sweatiness (that just seems to come with the territory), I can protect my family from sunburn! In order to do this, I reach into my super mommy tool belt (also known as a purse or pool bag), and pull out the Banana Boat! My family lives by Banana Boat! I lather the children and myself all up in the morning and feel confident that we’ll be protected the entire day.

Banana Boat’s Triple Defense Suncreen For Men #BBBestSummer #sponsored #MC

But wait, I forgot someone. My husband! That’s because we carry a special sunscreen (also by Banana Boat) just for him. Banana Boat’s Triple Defense Suncreen For Men is designed specifically for men. The idea for this sunscreen came about following a survey by the Skin Cancer Foundation in 2012. The survey revealed that men age 50 and over are over TWICE as likely to develop skin cancer than women.

This is scary, especially since the chemistry of a man is different than that of a woman, usually causing them to sweat much more. Banana Boat’s Triple Defense sunscreen for men offers a great solution however, as it contains Active Protect Technology that provides heavy-duty broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection that kicks in and stays strong when the sun’s ray are the most intense!


Be sure to grab a bottle of Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men for the special male in your life this summer. While you’re at it, be sure to enter the Best Summer Ever sweepstakes! There are several awesome family fun prizes, including a family trip to Treehouse Resort!
