Banana Boat Simply Protect Sport Sunscreen Spray Review

This spring I started going on long walks in the mornings as part of my exercise routine. I don’t enjoy running so I stick to hiking and nature walks instead. I love exercising outdoors, and I always wear a hat to protect my face from the sun.  But even with a hat on, my face has gotten sunburnt, so I have to apply sunscreen on my face, my arms and any exposed areas not covered by clothing to be fully protected.

Enter the brand new Banana Boat® Simply Protect Sport Sunscreen Spray.

Banana Boat Simply Protect Sport Sunscreen Spray Review

I’ve been using the Banana Boat® Simply Protect Sport Sunscreen Spray every day for the last couple of weeks, and it has been working wonderfully for me. I apply it before I leave the house and don’t need to re-apply until I am back from my hike (I usually go on 80-minute walks).  

Since it is now summer, it is very warm out while I am exercising, so I sweat lots. Thankfully the sunscreen is sweat and water-resistant, and so far my skin has been protected each time. I haven’t experienced any sunburns while using it.

The new Banana Boat® Simply Protect Sport Sunscreen is made with 25% fewer ingredients (including no added oils or fragrances), and it is super lightweight, easy to apply and to rub. I love using the spray because it is clear and I can cover a wide area quick, and I don’t have any white stains on my clothes after.

Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray is available in SPF 50 $13.99 (SRP), and it is also available in lotion SPF 50+. This spray is perfect for active people who love leading an active life outside.

Finally, remember that the most important thing is to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. Find a sun safety routine that works for you – including shade, clothing, hats, sunglasses and a broad spectrum sunscreen that provides UVA and UVB protection with a high enough SPF.

  1. Great product and it’s been around for years!! I have never had a problem with it, but I have seen people getting burnt from the product, not sure if it’s true though

  2. I love that this is sweat proof. As I get older I’ve noticed I sweat something fierce! I’ll have to look into this.

  3. I happy to know it’s fragrance free and holds up to a sweaty hike. Two MUSTS for me when I am considering a sunscreen.

  4. I know I should be more diligent about sunscreen, but I hate how it feels on my face. I’m.gping to check this one out!

  5. Fabulous! this is what hubby and I should get! of course we took care of the girl and purchased banana boat sunscreen last week but now mommy and daddy need some…especially before the weekend where its supposed to hit +35. love that this is a spray. so much easier to apply

  6. Fragrance free is a must for me. Do you happen to know if this one is ocean/coral safe? That’s something I’ve just started looking into for sunscreens.
