Have you ever heard that the sun is brutal in Australia? Some of the worst sunburn stories I've heard are from travelers coming back from Australia, where they were ill-prepared when hitting the beach or exploring the Outback. So it really came as no surprise to me when I heard about Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen - a brand of sunscreen originally created in Australia, which has some of the strictest regulations in the world! Blue Lizard is a pharmaceutical-grade sunscreen made by Crown Laboratories with the highest quality ingredients and ranked as one of the top sunscreens by the Environmental Working Group (EWG)!
You can tell right away that Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen is different from other brands...do you notice how the bottle is blue? It wasn't that way when it arrived in the mail!
Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen has a patented BPA free Smart Bottle™ that quite literally changes color when it is exposed to UV light, which is a not-so-subtle reminder that your skin is being exposed to UV rays even when you might not think it is! For instance...on cloudy days. We've all fallen victim to the incorrect notion that you don't need sunscreen when it's cloudy out, right? Don't be embarrassed - we learn from our mistakes! The 5oz bottles change color, as well as the lids on the 3oz tubes.
Why is sunscreen such serious business? Because this is OUR SKIN, people. Not only do we need to protect ourselves from increasing the risk of skin cancer due to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, but exposure to the sun also causes our skin to age more quickly...which as a woman approaching her 40's, I can tell you - that is not a good thing. It's so important to teach our children to wear sunscreen at all times, especially when they're going to be outside for extended periods of time - and that is what summertime is all about!
Blue Lizard is a full-spectrum sunscreen that provides a broad UV coverage, and it is recommended by doctors, dermatologists and pharmacists! It is available in a variety of sizes and formulas, perfect for the entire family or whatever your outing may be.
Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen is Available in:
- Sensitive - this formula is a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30+ that is Chemical-Free, Paraben-Free, Fragrance-Free and contains 10% Zinc Oxide; 5% Titanium Dioxide
- Face - Gel-formulated Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30+ that is Paraben-Free, Fragrance-Free,Oil-Free and Antioxidant Enriched with 8% Zinc Oxide
- Sport - a broad spectrum UVA/UVB that contains 6% zinc oxide, extremely water-resistant. It is designed for daily, full-body protection for the most active of people
- Regular - a broad spectrum UVA/UVB that contains 6% zinc oxide
If you are the type that is always outdoors and goes through a lot of sunscreen, you'll be happy to know that the Baby, Sport, Sensitive and Regular formulas can all be bought by the gallon!
I took the most popular formula, Sensitive, with me to Key West last week and used it when I went out on a charter boat to go snorkeling. I loved how it completely absorbed into my skin and didn't leave me feeling all greasy and gross, as some sunscreens do. I have a few newer tattoos that I am constantly worrying about when out in the sun, and I LOVED that the Blue Lizard in Sensitive was totally worry-free when using it on these areas because it is chemical-free!
I also used the Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen in the Face formula for my face (duh), because let's face it: I am a delicate flower and want to do whatever I can to protect my skin. I am not getting any younger and I do everything I can to avoid lotions or things that make my skin oily. A shiny face is NOT an attractive look on any woman, regardless of age!

We'll be spending time at the lake a lot and we have a trip planned to the east coast 🙂
My family and I will be spending the summer just hanging out around the house. Being a fair skinned red head and having a jeep that we leave the top off of during the summer- I need the very best protection possible!
Mostly at the beach, in our backyard, playgrounds, and outings to the shops!
I usually spend my days in the summer working but when I have off and on the weekends I am at the beach.
Mostly I work during the summer but when I'm off I hang out around my sisters pool - she lives next door.
Usually we spend our summer days hiking and visiting new parks. We like to go to the ocean, too!
