Staying Safe in the Sun

Do you know that if you are planning on being out in the sun for more than 20 minutes, you should take steps to protect your skin from the sun? Whether you are planning on spending the day by the pool or just out doing errands, sun protection is important all throughout the year, but especially in the summer months. One essential tool for sun protection is sunscreen. However, many users don’t like the greasy feeling or the overpowering scent, so they may skip an application. With COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer products, you don’t have to worry about that at all. 

I received free samples of COPPERTONE CLEARLYSheer products and coupons to try out from BzzAgent. One was for Sunny Days, while the other formula was for Beach and Pool. I tried the 30SPF Broad Spectrum Sunny Days formula first, and I loved the fact that it felt light on my skin and not heavy or greasy. I was also pleased with the scent. I didn’t want to spend the day smelling like I spent the day on vacation. The scent has a citrus note to it, which is much better than the heavy coconut scents in other products. 

When I finally did have a day off and I could go hang out by the pool. I used the Beach and Pool version, which was a 50SPF Broad Spectrum spray. Just like the formula for Sunny Days, it worked well to protect my skin, smelled great and didn’t leave a heavy film on my skin. It's also moisturizing and won't clog your pores--so it has a number of great benefits aside from sun protection.

This product has actually gotten me to use sunscreen more often, just because it feels so much lighter than other sun protection products. As long as I continue to correctly apply whenever I go outside, I know I’ll feel better about my efforts to protect my skin.  I will definitely be keeping a bottle around for those long summer days.

Finding Foot Relief with #GoPROFOOT

Foot pain can be a tough thing to deal with. So can the rough, dry and cracked skin on your feet. Thankfully, I have found a couple of foot products that really do the trick when you want to pamper your feet. With ProFoot Orthotics, my feet feel much better when I working out, walking and standing all day long. The cushioned heels and arch support work great in my sneakers. 

After a long day, I also want to get rid the gross dryness on my feet. There are a lot of products out there that can scrape away callouses and dry skin, but the Pedi Rock for ProFoot is a great product. First of all, you can use it wet or dry, which means you can use it anytime. It’s also contoured to fit the shape of your foot (and your hand) for quick and easy use. It’s reusable, so I don’t have to go out and buy one every time I want to use it, which is great. 

So now my feet are much smoother, softer and not as angry at me at the end of the day.

Stay Moving With Fresh Balance

Women know that feeling good, fresh and confident are all qualities we need to face the day ahead. When it’s that time of the month, those good feelings can go out the window without the proper protection to do all the things that we want to do. With Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™ tampons, you can do exactly what you want when you want to do it. 

These tampons are made for those who are active—whether that’s team sports, your daily jog or simply a super-busy day on the go. In terms of fit and absorbency, these tampons do their job. Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™ tampons also have Odor Shield™ technology that helps to keep you feeling fresh by neutralizing odors. Along with that technology, a light, fresh scent is also added to the product. While I liked how these worked, I did not like the scent. However, women who do want a light, fresh scent will find this to be the perfect product to keep motivated and keep moving.
