Summer. It's almost here.. promise! It's a good time to be a Melbourne Mum in Spring/Summer, because there are plenty more outside options for you and your kids to partake in; trips to the beach for example.
Although Melbourne is not best known for its beaches, you only need to head down the coast, anywhere from Brighton down to Frankston to enjoy some beautiful seaside spots.
Living in Bayside, we are exceptionally lucky to live near some of the finest beaches in the bay. Getting a family ready for the beach is another story; buckets, shovels, towels, swimmer nappies, bathers, food, drink, shade, and of course, sun protection.

Banana Boat has just launched a new sunscreen that is perfect for family time at the beach.. why? because SunComfort is the first sunscreen that allows sand to brush easily off your skin, making for a sand-free day at the beach.
Recently my family road-tested Banana Boat's newest SunComfort on an overseas trip, and we were impressed.
Not only does the sunscreen come with a high SPF 50 plus rating, but is really does help to keep the sand off your skin. The Clear Spray, in particular, we found to be a firm favourite. The fragrance of Banana Boat's Clear is not too strong, it sprays on completely clear in a fine mist, which is particularly easy to get the kids protected quickly, and without a fuss.
With the newest Banana Boat suncare range, you might not be able to prevent sand getting in your child's shoes or hair, but at least you can keep it from sticking to your kid's skin, and that's always a winner in any parent's book. Roll on summer.
You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 9th September 2018 at Fitzroy Gardens.
SunComfort is available from September 2016 onwards in the supermarkets and pharmacies. The product is available in both clear spray and lotion solutions. Recommended retail prices include $17.99 for the Clear Spray and $16.99 for the Sunscreen Lotion. For more information, head to www.bananaboat.com
