It's that time of year when drugstores and supermarkets stock their shelves with loads of sun protection products, reminding people to protect their skin! I had a chance to review Copperstone's Clearly Sheer Suncscreen, thanks to BzzAgent, a social marketing company that I've had the opportunity to work with for over 5 years.
I've used Coppertone for years, so I'm comfortable with the brand and their products. The Clearly Sheer is a newly released line with a revamped formula. The sunscreen claims to be non-acenegenic, non-comedogenic, moisturizing and sheer.
I prefer higher SPF on by body so I used the SPF 50 when I went to the LA Dodgers game a few weeks ago. It was a convenient travel size version which fit perfectly in my handbag without weighing me down. The spray nozzle is great to use as well - I have little patience when it comes to applying suncreen. Case in point: as we were walking from the parking lot toward the stadium (about a half mile hike), I was able to thoroughly spray down my legs, arms, back and neck in less than 3 minutes. I then passed it on to my fellow male companions who did the same. By the time we reached our seats inside Dodgers stadium, we were protected from the harsh, afternoon LA sun.
Let me say that I don't think the boys would have been inclined to use sunscreen if they had seen me laboriously lathering on lotion. I think the spray can was quite appealing to them!
Here is the product information and ingredients for those that are curious.
