word is getting out
Fellow mermaid Sierra Groth has put together a list of the best bikinis for surfing, and Tiem made the list. Check out her blog here:
HELIOPHILES!!! (lovers of sunlight)
We've found the best sunscreen on the market and we're pretty excited about it...
• Stays on ALL DAY LONG
• Good for you ingredients
• Great value... a little goes a LOOOONG way
Ok, we know what you are thinking... EVERY sunblock advertises these qualities, and usually they are either straight up lying, or it sucks to wear, or both. BANXblock is a different story. Most importantly, it is absolutely TRULY waterproof! Shocking, we know, because everyone says it and THEY'RE ALL LYING. When we say waterproof, we don't mean lasting a 5 minute motionless soak in a pool... we're talking staying on and effective through at least an entire surf session, if not an entire day on the beach... and BANXblock pulls this off like none other. You literally have to scrub it off with soap and a washcloth at the end of the day!
As the people from the John Wayne Cancer Society say, the best sunscreen is the sunscreen you will actually wear. Well said! BANXblock feels good to wear because it's light and it's not greasy! We promise! And it's not like the "ultra sheer ultra light dry-touch" crap that starts "dry" and turns into snail snot the moment you get it wet. For someone who uses a board or a craft that they don't want to slip off of, BANXblock is the way forward. Also, it won't come off all over everything else like the Vertra or Shiseido face sticks. We were lucky enough to find this stuff at the 2014 Lifeguard Nationals in Virginia Beach and got to test it for three LONG days in the sun, competing in many races each day, in and out of the water... and we LOVED it. The only drawback we found was that as with any sunblock containing zinc oxide, it leaves you a little bit white. But for anyone serious about sun protection while in the water, we know this doesn't even factor in.
And in case you're curious, they are not paying us to write this... We are just genuinely excited about this product. PLEASE go buy your own, we'd like the company to stick around! (And we'd like all the good sun and water loving people of the world to stick around too, so wear your sunblock!)
And speaking of sun protection, we found this awesome video....
