Have Fun in the Sun With Mary Kay's Sun Care Collection! (Review & Giveaway)

3:50 PM

There is just something about stretching out on a lawn chair on a warm day and soaking up the sun. When I lived at home before I was married, I often liked to dry off after swimming by laying on the pool deck in the sun. The warmth felt sooo good and it was very relaxing. After I found out that I had Lupus, I learned that I needed to really limit my time in the sun as that would make my symptoms worse. This was really disheartening for me...I so enjoyed being outside! If I did go out, I could only be out for a short time and had to wear loads of sunscreen. Things haven't changed over the years. I am still limited as far as how long I can be outside and if I am out too long, I get extremely tired and achy. Well, in preparation for my summer I am pleased to introduce you to Mary Kay's Sun Care Collection! I am very excited about these products because it means I will be able to enjoy the summer to it's fullest...without worrying about my health.
The Mary Kay Sun Care Collection consists of several products that are intended to protect, replenish and nourish your skin...all while making sure you stay safe in the hot summer sun. In case you are not familiar with the Mary Kay company, here is a bit of information about the company itself...

In 1963, Mary Kay Ash founded her Company on the personal values that guided her life – integrity, honesty and an unwavering belief in the Golden Rule and in the power of touching lives. Today, these values remain at the heart of everything we do, including our passion for developing products that can awaken a woman’s true beauty inside and out. Our philosophy is simple – we will deliver on every product promise that we make. Because we proudly stand behind the quality of our products and the real benefits they provide, there are millions of women who can say, “I love my Mary Kay!”

I can tell you that in my experience with all of Mary Kay's products, I have NEVER been disappointed. Everything that the company carries makes me feel glamorous, stylish and beautiful. The products are always very well packaged and presented, making Mary Kay a top of the line company in my book and on my blog.
So, for this review I was sent all of the products from the Mary Kay Sun Care Collection and am going to share them with you today!


Each of these products come in an attractive blue and gold box and may I just say right now that they smell amazing!! As soon as I opened the box that contained these products I could smell coconut and it was wonderful!!!
The first product that I tried was the Subtle Tanning Lotion. I have very fair skin and have used tanning lotions in the past due to my ghostly white skin. I love using these types of lotions and how they make my skin look darker. This particular lotion from Mary Kay is not greasy at all and is subtle enough to use on a daily basis. All you need to do is smooth it on evenly a few minutes before dressing and then let it dry...it only takes a minute or so and it does not rub off on clothing or other surfaces so there is no worry about that.  One ingredient of this tanning lotion is Shea Butter, which is WONDERFUL for maintaining smooth and supple skin. I loved how easy this lotion was to apply and how quickly it dried. It was almost immediate. The coconut and honeysuckle fragrance was lovely and I really felt pampered after using it! The Subtle Tanning Lotion retails for $16.00 for a 4 oz. tube.
The Lip Protector Sunscreen was also very nice to try. It glided onto my lips smoothly and evenly and really felt like it created a nice barrier for me. It is really easy to forget to protect your lips from the sun and so I am glad that there is a product like this available. The broad spectrum protection that is provided will keep your lips safe from harmful UVA/UVB rays, which is great. You can also use this lip balm in the water as it is water resistant for up to 80 minutes! This Lip Protector retails for $7.50 for .16 oz.
Lastly, I am really excited about the Mary Kay Sun Care Sunscreens. Did you know that even on cloudy days when the sun is not out that there are still harmful UV rays penetrating through the clouds? I learned this several years ago when I went to an amusement park on a cloudy day and still got a sunburn. This is why it is SO important to protect your skin when you go out regardless of how sunny it is. Both of these sunscreens hold different SPF (Sun Protection Factor) levels so you can choose which one you want based on what you will be doing in the sun.  The newest of these two is the Mary Kay Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50. You can also use these sunscreens in the water but make sure you reapply after towel-drying. You can be sure that you are getting a great product when the ingredients include Vitamin A, Vitamin C Palmitate, Acai Berry Extract and other natural and skin-improving ingredients. Both of these products retail for $14 for a 4 oz. tube.
Each of these products from the Mary Kay Sun Care Collection can be found on their website, or you can find an independent beauty consultant and order directly from them.

So, in my opinion...I am in love with the Mary Kay Sun Care Collection! I love the scents, textures and longevity of these products. Each one carries a specific list of important ingredients for sun protection, which is great. I would highly recommend this line of Mary Kay products to anyone...men, women or children. Prepare for loads of fun in the sun and be safe while doing so!
Mary Kay has offered to give away this Sun Care Collection to one of my readers (winner receives the same products that I received...all pictured above!)! This is a fantastic summer giveaway that I hope you will enjoy. :)  Here are your entry options...
