Sunscreen Bands and Giveaway

by Pennie on April 17, 2014

How Sunscreen Bands Work

Be smarter in the sun!

Sunscreen Bands make it fun and easy to remember to reapply sunscreen and when to get out of the sun or cover up. Our patented color changing technology detects damaging UVA & UVB rays while you work, play and enjoy your time in the sun using your favorite sunscreen. The bands work wet or dry and are ideal for children and adults. You can use any type of sunscreen spf 15 or higher whether it is a cream, spray or lotion.

Prepare for the outdoors

When applying sunscreen and for reapplying sunscreen to your skin, always follow the exact directions for use and application directions that are on your sunscreen label. Before going outside, liberally apply any sunscreen or spray SPF 15 or higher to sun-exposed skin.

Get out in the sun to activate your band

As soon as you step into the sun, place a Sunscreen Band around your wrist with the printed side up. Your Sunscreen Band will turn Dark Purple within a minute. This means that the band is now activated by the sun it is monitoring both UVA & UVB exposure. When the band turns dark purple, apply your sunscreen to the band and let the band dry for 15 minutes before getting the band wet. This allows the first application of sunscreen to properly dry on the band.

Reapply Reminder when the band turns lavender

As you stay in the sun, the band will gradually change color from Dark Purple to light purple. When the band turns light purple in color, this is your reminder to reapply sunscreen to your skin and to the band. Check your sunscreen label directions for reapplying sunscreen and follow the exact directions on the label.

Know when to get out of the sun

When any part of your Sunscreen Band turns cream (light-yellow), it’s time to get out of the sun or cover sun-exposed skin. You have reached your maximum sun exposure for the day based on the SPF of your sunscreen. Once the band turns to a cream color, the band has completed its monitoring exposure for the day and will not monitor any more. You can dispose of the band by placing it in a recycling bin as the bands material is safe to recycle.

With skin cancer rising at alarming rates amongst adults and children, our bands really help people monitor their sun exposure and their daily sunscreen usage.  Our bands are also waterproof, tested in both chlorine and salt water, so are great for beach vacations or swim clubs.
For more information visit: www.sunscreenbands.com.   

 
Nicole’s take:  Living in Florida we have strong sun all year round and I am very fair skinned.  I wear sunscreen on my face and skin every day! When we go to the pool, the beach or an outside event we put on even more sunscreen! I am always concerned that we need to reapply sunscreen but wasn’t sure how often to do so! These bands help with that! I love that it tells you when you need to reapply and also when you’ve had enough sun! I wasn’t surprised that I needed to reapply more often than I thought!

by Pennie on April 14, 2014

Creepy crawlers are crawling into real life with Animal Planet’s new Real Scary Spiders augmented reality app. The scary and cool addition to Animal Planet’s digital portfolio enables users to interact with a pet spider via an app and to bring their spider to life through a unique augmented reality experience. As users advance through the game, they will be allowed to ‘handle’ their spiders in the real world by directing their device at a trigger object to bring the spider to life.  Here is a preview video:

The app can be downloaded for free at www.realscaryspiders.com and is available for both iOS and Android platforms.  For continued play, customers who purchase the Animal Planet Web Blasting Tarantula exclusively at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide will be able to use the toy’s package as a game trigger, activating an additional inter-connected experience that brings the box to life within the app. 

Nicole’s take:  Noah loves toys that have a digital component to them and this tarantula is pretty cool that way! He is loving his new pet spider and thought that the accompanying app was a fun way to bring it all to life! The app is free which is great and you don’t need the tarantula to play.  Noah told me he thought that the app was really cool and he loved the interaction.  He is still playing with the app and the toy a week later – always a good sign!
