It’s no wonder we’re out of practice. Though I know sunscreen is important year-round, living in Saskatchewan where it’s dark by 5pm in the winter months, I really don’t start to think about sunscreen until May. At that point, we’re so busy with end-of-year school activities and sports that our experience with sunscreen usually involves a quick spray or slap on of lotion on our way out the door, and hoping for the best.

There are lots of great hacks and tips out there to help us remember to reapply sunscreen, and a very basic tip is to use a shotglass sized amount of sunscreen per person, give or take. But what if you’re heading out for an afternoon at a park and shot glasses in your purse make you look more stressed out than you really are? ðŸ˜‰

I’ve found a helpful quiz online that determines how much sunscreen you need based on factors like your skin tone, whether it’s for an adult or child, and the type of event. The quiz will calculate your answers and then give you a product suggestion and amount needed to ensure you’re properly covered, along with a reminder of exactly how much to reapply every 2 hours. Did you know that 58% of sunscreen users misuse sunscreen by failing to reapply every 2 hours? I’m among them.

This tool is also great for keeping you on top of your sunscreen supply. It’s the worst to grab sunscreen when heading out the door and then have to apply it sparingly for the whole family because the bottle wasn’t as full as you thought it would be. Yikes!

I encourage you to take a look through your summer sunscreen supply (mine is in a basket in my laundry room so we can easily grab it on our way out the door, I also keep one in my car’s console, in a bag). Then, see if it’s time to stock up after you take the Banana BoatÂ® sunscreen quiz at Walmart.ca. Head over to Walmart to pick your favorite Banana BoatÂ® products – they’re all easy to find right now in their seasonal section.

We particularly love Banana BoatÂ® Sport PerformanceÂ® with POWERSTAY TECHNOLOGYâ„¢ SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray. It’s easy to apply (with busy kids I prefer spray to lotion), absorbs quickly and won’t run into your eyes. It’s water resistant too (80 minutes) so it’s an all-around useful product for us.

To help encourage summer fun with the family without the worry, we’re giving readers the opportunity to win a $100 Gift Card to pick up Banana BoatÂ® sunscreen (and maybe some snacks or sunglasses or?) for the family. Simply take the Banana BoatÂ® Sunscreen Quiz and leave a comment below to tell us your result for the activity you picked. Remember, the result is for just 1 person, so multiply it for everyone in your family to ensure you’re – literally – covered this summer! (See official rules here)
