SCAPE Sunscreen Review and Giveaway!
Recently, Scape sent me a sample pack of Athlete's sunscreen and lip balm to try out...you know I, a late-bloomer with a serious case of Adult-Onset Athletics, loved this!
Scape is formulated to not run into your eyes when you sweat, so seeing as I sweat like a fiend, I felt pretty qualified to test it out. I have to say, it delivered - no stinging eyes as a result of the sunscreen pouring into them during my hot Texas runs! And even though I run early in the morning, the sun is out and believe me, I can get a sunburn as early as 8:00 am - by then, it's in the mid-eighties, people! So in an effort to take better care of myself, I'm trying to do the right thing and apply sunscreen on a more regular basis. I liked Scape - it's a little thicker than the Coppertone Sport that I was using, but it sure seems to have some staying power. I guess that's because it's not sliding down my face or arms, lol. The sunscreen has a very light scent that I only noticed for a minute (I'm pretty sensitive to scented cosmetics on my face and always choose unscented if I can). The lip balm has a light lemon scent. I will admit that I still like my Burt's Bees lip balm better, but the Scape has sunscreen in it (SPF 50!) so I try and remember to use it when I'm out in the sun.
The good news is that the fine folks at Scape also sent me an extra sample pack for one lucky reader! One of you will receive a tube of Scape SPF 30 sunscreen and an SPF 50 lip balm!!! To enter, just leave me a comment telling me what you ate for breakfast this morning. (What, you were expecting something sunscreen related??) That's it - easy as pie (mmm, pie). I'll draw a winner after 10:00 pm CST Thursday night and announce it on the Friday Mishmash, interwebs-willing. U.S. addresses only - sorry to my international peeps. Good luck, and don't forget to apply your sunscreen!
FCC alert: Scape sent me two sets of sunscreen and lipbalm for free - one to try and one to give away. Opinions expressed in this review are all mine.
