Banana Boat Fun in the Sun at Pico De Loro

Who would have thought that a sunblock could be so dry you would think you're wearing nothing?  

It's the Summer season once again and we all know that the sun's scorching heat could do more harm than good on our skin.

Good thing there are several new variants of Banana Boat products that are totally mess free because they're available in dry lotion spray on packaging!  

Team 5

Team 5 & 6 after the AmazingSkin Race

Yes, darlings, we tested the new spray variants of Banana Boat Dry lotion under seven tough conditions through an Amazing Race type of adventure at Pico de loro in Batangas last April 26, 2018.

The AmazingSkin Race started off by dividing us into groups. We wanted the 7 of us to be in one group but the emcee divided us into two. But we still regroup every time we can. Ha ha ha

You could imagine our happiness when team 6 got the bronze medal with cash. My parents taught me to be happy for others when they succeed. It is the true measure of being a good person.

Armed with Banana Boat spray on dry lotion ( plus face lotion ) from head to toe we headed to Hamilo Coast at Pico De Loro in Nasugbu, Batangas. 

Ocean Water

Our group started off by swimming towards the guide then retrieved the boat shape floater from him and we brought it back to the shore.

The lotion stays despite my body's contact with the ocean water. Yey!


After which, we ran to our next task, that of a paper attached to our skin for it to change color, which we easily surpassed. ( Ano ba beh! Tagaktak na pawis namin kaya yakang yaka na mag palit ng kulay ng papel kakatakbo namin paroo't pairot ineng. Isang lagay sa noo at siya ay nagbago agad ng kulay. Pak na pak! Ha ha ha! )

In fairness, grabe pawis namin pero hindi siya humulas!


The next one probed to be a challenge because the Sun suddenly disappeared and we had to wait for the sun to shine again in all its glory so we can put a hole on the paper using a magnifying glass.

We were all baked under the heat of the sun and yet hindi ako umitim!

Pool Water

After which, we picked up sea shells at the plastic swimming pool to form the words that stands for the seven conditions.

Labas masok kami sa inflatable pool pero keber kahit super init whiz natanggal ang aming sunblock!


Then we played Frisbee which is very easy because Gab has taught us the style on how to catch it properly. It pays to know the game beforehand. Thanks, Gab!

This calls for group cooperation. Each one of us used a plastic cup and filled it up with sand and form the number 7 and count up to 30 seconds to pass the challenge.

Kesehodang gumugulong na kami sa sand pak na pak pa rin ang aming sunblock.

100 degree heat

Directional shadow is very easy, we just pointed the shadow to the Banana Boat Dry Lotion Standee

Running back and forth and swimming under the heat of the noontime sun is quite an amazing skin challenge.

Banana Boast Dry Lotion is love!  I super love the classic spray on spf 50 dry lotion because it has no nasty smell very compatible to people with allergic reactions to smelly lotion.  And it really protected my skin from the harsh sun. And because it comes in a spray tin can, applying it on your skin is very easy. Plus it has a matte finish. So it doesn't weigh you down! 

It is available in SPF 30/50+

Formulated to absorbs excess moisture, and dry with a soft matte finish – so nice that you’ll want to reapply! Designed for ideal skin feel, Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen keeps you protected from the sun while feeling dry and fresh so you can enjoy your day – no matter where you are!


  • Provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection
  • Dries with a soft matte finish
  • Lightweight, non-greasy formula absorbs excess moisture while allowing skin to breathe
  • Water-resistant formula (up to 80 minutes)
  • Stays on in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100 degree heat
  • Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation to protect against the sun’s harmful rays

Realization- It's true! Banana Boat Dry Lotion stays on in seven conditions –  ocean water, sun, pool water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100 degree heat.

I love Banana Boat's face lotion! It provides the SPF 30 protection I need and absorbs quickly so it won’t run into my eyes – or slow me down.

Nice to see you again my friend from my favorite Magazine!
Good news also to all mommies out there! Banana boat has spray on dry lotion for kids too!

Protect your skin and your family's skin as well by always wearing sun screen everyday even indoors.

I am grateful to the PR group who invited us to this wonderful experience with Banana Boat.  We were strangers at the beginning of the journey but we formed a new friendship when the event ended. Thank you Banana Boat!

Enjoy your summer with #BananaBoatPH !
