Holy cow, summer is here, in full force in Arizona! I mean, technically it’s not June 21st yet, but the weather here seems to think otherwise. I mean, it is Arizona after all. It’s in the high 90’s/low 100’s on the daily here already, which means we are basically living in the pool or the air conditioner. The kids aren’t mad about that first one at all 😉
So I thought I would kick things off with a fun little post of all my favorite must have products for staying safe in the sun. Especially now that Blake is officially out of school and like I said, swimming is basically an everyday thing around here.
First and foremost before I dive into specific products, download the Ibotta app! Because that’s where you’re going to find the best offers and deals for these or similar products!

Now, let’s talk about products.
I am a huge advocate for sun safety, because my mom actually had melanoma and I get skin checks every 6 months. So sun safety is a top priority for me and my family! I love a good SPF for the kids, preferably a mineral sunscreen with 50+ spf and if it’s in a spray version that’s even better. Because that means easy application 😉 For myself and Marcus we also try to go the mineral sunscreen route and aim for it to be above 30 SPF! We also both use a lotion in the morning on our face for daily SPF protection on our face. The rule of thumb around here is, if we are going outside for more than 5 minutes, we put sunscreen on. We keep some easily accessible by the door outback and in my car! We also do our best to wear long sleeve sun shirts while working in the yard and hats to cover our face!
The best part about all of these products is you can grab them at several different stores online or in store + most have incredible reward options through Ibotta! So…get rewarded while you shop for the essentials!
