Mid-Summer SPF Check!

Summer is flying by but the sun shows no signs of letting up! Australian Gold Botanical sunscreens arrived to my office this month and I've been loving the mineral-based, antioxidant rich formulas for both me and the kids. They feel amazing, smell wonderful, feature eco-friendly formulas, and are great for the whole family. Best of all, they provide great coverage and get the job done.

What I like best about the formulas is that they're non-greasy and have a matte finish, which make them great for the face and under makeup. You can also find Australian Gold at CVS, Walmart, and Target. I often have a hard time finding good sunscreens in mass retailers. The kids love that it goes on "warm" and they are obsessed with the delicious scent.
