SmartShield Sunscreen {Review & Giveaway & Coupon Code} All Natural Eco-Friendly Sunscreen

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

The first official day of summer around here was actually pretty rainy. And then so was the next day. And the next. Meaning we spent quite a bit of time inside, watching the raindrops roll down the windows.

But lately, the weather forecast has been looking much more like this:

And with beautiful weeks ahead of us (and lots of rain hopefully behind us), that only means our time spent outdoors enjoying the sunshine will increase tremendously. My girls love to play outside, whether going for a walk, hanging out at the park or just coloring with chalk on the driveway.

One of the first things we do to prepare for heading out to enjoy the fresh air and warm weather? Apply sunscreen, of course. For me, I want a lotion that absorbs easily, feels light on my skin and can be worn all day without being greasy. So, for serious sun protection that is good for me and the environment, I turn to SmartShield.

I was introduced to SmartShield in March through a review of their Self Tanner with SPF 15. As well as enjoying the ability to have a nice, natural glow while protecting my skin, I was really impressed to learn about SmartShield as a whole and their entire line of safe, eco-friendly, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-approved sunscreens.

Unlike oil-based sunscreens that can clog pores, sting your eyes and leave you feeling slimy, the formula for SmartShield SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion is fast-absorbing and contains aloe vera and vitamin A, C and E to keep your skin protected, soft and smooth for hours. Combine that with the fact that this sunscreen features UVA and UVB protection and is waterproof and rubs on clean and evenly and I have no problem using it to keep myself safe from the sun's rays.

With a wide variety of products to make your times outdoors more enjoyable, SmartShield has a suncare product to fit any lifestyle. For people who prefer spray sunscreens instead of lotions, the sunscreen I tried also comes as a SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray for a quick, fast-drying application.

Or, for all-around protection, I love the idea of the SPF 30 Spray with Insect Repellent to combine everything you need to stay protected from both the sun and the bugs. The convenience of having both products combined into one handy spray just makes sense!

On top of being innovative, SmartShield's products are also eco-friendly, something that is not necessarily true of most sunscreens that I've seen before. Approved for use in natural marine habitats, their sunscreen is bio-degradable and won't contaminate the water. Simply apply and continue fishing, swimming, snorkeling or diving without transferring any oily residue - how great!

This summer, protect yourself, your family and the environment with any one of SmartShield's all natural sunscreens. To enjoy a discount while doing it, enter Sun2 to receive $2.00 off any online order from SmartShield's website. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared to have fun in the sun the eco-friendly way, because...

One lucky person will win a 4.5 oz bottle of SmartShield SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion!
