Summer will prove to be the most fun and enjoyable time of the year. School is out and children are getting lots and lots of free time to play around under the sun all day. Families are also taking advantage of the good sunny weather to plan their next adventure or simple have a wonderful time with one another catching  up with the little ones who are busy at school or with dad who is often tied up at work. It does not matter whether they plan to whisk off to the nearest beach for a quick getaway, or hit the nearby park in the city, as long as there will be loads of fun and exciting activities for each family member to enjoy!

Summertime has finally arrived this year and Banana Boat welcomes it with a bang by turning the 26-hectare Quezon City Memorial Circle expanse into one big playground through their Banana Boat Great Outdoor Fun event. Mumwrites was lucky to be invited to the event presscon last 08 March, held in Ortigas City, and was able to get first dibs on what’s in store for every family that joins the event this coming Sunday!

“Banana Boat will welcome the much anticipated summer season on March 17 and we invite families and barkadas to spend that fun-filled day with us,” said Claire Guevarra, Banana Boat Senior Brand Manager. “We promise that there will be plenty of exciting activities and good times in store for the entire family,” she added.

Of course, basking in all these activities under the sun can be harmful to our skin, and who is better to teach us how to properly care for the skin, not only for summer, but whole year round, than Banana Boat, with their core products Banana Boat Ultra Protect SPF-50 and Banana Boat Ultra Protect SPF-80,  and they have enlisted a skin expert to share tips and ways on how we can protect our skin from harmful rays.

Banana Boat Lotions make use of the three-way approach against sunburn through the use of its advanced UVB protection, as well as long-term skin damage with its improved UVA protection which lasts longer than ordinary solutions. They also have a specified product for the kiddos, Banana Boat Kids SPF-50 {with gentle and mild, tear-free protection}, so you do not have to worry while you have fun under the sun all day, as Banana Boat got you covered!

I am looking forward to this Sunday’s event and I really hope the little man will be well by the time so we can attend. Mark your calendars and be sure to join in on all the summer fun at Banana Boat Great Outdoor fun this coming Sunday!
