Just recently, Badger came out with a new and improved line of sunscreen lotions – from the Kids Sunscreen to the Aloe and the Baby Sunscreen, these new sunscreen lotions boast a moisturizing and easy to spread on skin formula! And it comes with a great level of SPF 30 protection!
I was so excited to get my hands on the new Badger Aloe Sunscreen, I squirted a big glob of it on the back of my hand as you can see from the picture above! And this is partially because I was expecting a hard and tough blob of sunscreen to come out of that tube. I am no stranger to thick and hard to spread natural sunscreens so I was thrilled that the Aloe Sunscreen Lotion is the exact opposite of that.I put a decent amount of sunscreen on my face and as I was smoothing it into my face, I was thinking about how easy it was to apply. I have tried other popular brands of natural sunscreens but I always end up with a thick, streaky, and white layer of sunscreen on my face. However, I saw the Aloe Sunscreen Lotion disappear easily and my face did not resemble a ghost at all.
The texture of the Aloe Sunscreen Lotion is my absolute favorite thing about the product. The sunscreen lotion really is a daily sunscreen that is both moisturizing and easy to apply. As for the fragrance, it’s very similar to the other kinds of natural sunscreens with zinc oxide in them. If that sort of fragrance is not your favorite, I suggest trying out the Kids Sunscreen which has vanilla and sweet orange essential oils in it! I am told that the Kids Sunscreen has a creamsicle fragrance to it and who doesn’t love creamsicles?!
I am so glad Badger came out with these new sunscreens. I was always put off from putting on natural sunscreens because of their thick texture and being an extremely lazy person, I never wanted to spend 15 minutes smoothing it on my face. However, I don’t fear putting on natural sunscreens anymore, which is a great thing because it’s starting to get sunny here in Chicago. I have my Badger Aloe Sunscreen Lotion to make my sunscreen routine a breeze!
