The Perfect Summer Survival Kit Giveaway—and Free Sunscreen for Those Who Need It!

It’s Friday! And we feel like a giveaway. (Especially since we haven’t really had one since all of our fun birthday partyin‘!) So behold the The Perfect Summer Survival Kit. It’s up for grabs courtesy of Neutrogena to three lucky U.S. readers! 


As you’ve probably already read, we’re a blog ambassador for Neutrogena, and we are super passionate about skin health. So much so that I even recently went on Kansas City TV to help inform people about how to protect their skin during the summer months. But, the sad fact is that not everyone can afford sunscreen—or afford good-quality sunscreen. Which is where today’s giveaway (and the below video) comes in…

For any Neutrogena product with SPF purchased through July, Neutrogena will donate one to a family in need, up to $10 million in retail value. Every child deserves protection from the sun’s harmful rays—so join in spreading the word by sharing this post and video with someone in your life. Then, leave a comment with who you told and how you told them, and you’ll be entered to win that Perfect Summer Survival Kit! Winners will be announced in about a week in both the comments and directly via email.

Hooray for a healthy summer—for all! —Jenn

    I emailed my parents who are spending a lot of the summer on Lake Michigan! I love sunscreen.

  2. Molly says:

    Shared with my friend Shirley Moore who easily sunburns but now lives at the beach with her husband and three children. I LOVE Neutrogena!! Always me fave and recommendation! Thanks!

  3. Erin Jane says:

    I emailed my mom who has the exact opposite skin-type of my dad and I. She was blessed with wonderful white skin that turns red and spotty in the sun…. always a joke amongst our family. Despite the fact that every year when summer sum comes a shinin’ SHE BURNS, she stil hass yet to grasp the concept of using sunscreen! Drives me nuts! Guess I’ll just continue to push and preach the importance of protecting that beautiful skin of hers!!! 🙂

  4. BV says:

    I shared with my sister who lives in Florida. Sunscreen is so important.

  5. Jen says:

    I shared this with my Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest followers!

  6. Wehaf says:

    I emailed all my pale sisters and friends. 🙂

  7. Kate says:

    I told my sisters (they’re tired of hearing about it from me by this point!!).
    One of them has fair skin and red hair, one of them has olive skin and brown hair. I’m somehow right in the middle, with medium skin and reddish hair…I preach about sunscreen all of the time! I used to go tanning in high school and college, didn’t actually quit until grad school. I’m proud to say it’s been 9 years since I’ve seen the inside of a tanning booth and now I’m religious about sun protection. Thanks for spreading the word!

  8. Rosie says:

    I’m not sure when I found out, but many many years ago I lived on a sailboat and was exposed to sooo much sun, that ever since then, I’ve been extra careful. I keep good sunscreen with me always, and reapply. I tell everyone who will listen and offer them my sunscreen. I’m surprised at how many ppl who will only eat organic food, will douse themselves in harmful sun rays without a care!

  9. Cat says:

    I know that the sun is harmful but so many sunscreens are filled with chemicals that absorb into your body through your skin, it creeps me out! I know that Neutrogena products have shown up on many lists of the Best Skin Products lists for not having such noxious chemicals in them, which is why this year I will be buying (or maybe winning??) their products. I shared the info from this article with my co-workers when we were conversing over lunch. Some of these ladies have little ones and are starting them with good habits right away!

  10. Lynetta says:

    I shared on FB with my friends – especially Sarah and Lizzy who are very fair skinned and burned yesterday even with sunscreen on!

  11. Erin says:

    I sent my brother a text message, because he golfs a lot and uses tons of sunscreen!

  12. It shocks me when I have gone to purchase sunscreen the past two years and the prices are ridiculous! $15 for a bottle of sunscreen?! Awesome that you are giving some away, hope the winner is worthy!

  13. heather h. says:

    i told my friends about the importance of sun protection when they were threatening to go for a hike sans sunscreen.

  14. Janet says:

    I told my co-workers and emailed my friends!! Sunscreen is definitely a must for EVERYONE!

  15. Tiffiny Duke says:

    I shared with my mom and sister through Facebook.

  16. JeanMarie says:

    I shared this on my personal FB wall, my FB page, and my Blog. I love Neutrogena because I can use their products on my sensitive skin. To see that they are doing this is so amazing! I would have never thought of it; but from now on I am going to be putting sun screen in all my donation boxes!! We live in South MS and are exposed to the sun all the time. The beach is one way families of any income level can have a great non stressed day. I am so glad I saw this post today!!

  17. Angie says:

    I called my cousin who has very sensitive skin and this would be a life saver for her!

  18. TS says:

    I shared with my kids…neighbors….co workers lol its important to protect yourself and those you love . I will agree that the price of sunscreen has gotten out of hand tho . Its a shame that some people can’t afford to protect themselves . Its awesome that Neutrogena will give do something like that . They made me a new customer .

  19. PluvK says:

    I think that this is so important! I’m sharing this with my husband who works outside, but is really lazy about wearing sunscreen. Whenever I can, I try to swipe or spray some on him.

    I also shared on twitter: https://twitter.com/pluvk/status/345736541265608704

  20. Marin says:

    Sent it to my mom–she taught me the importance of sunscreen and she’ll love this cause!

  21. Lorraine says:

    I told my friend who has very fair skin and burns easily. He loves the beach and needs to be committed to reapplying.

  22. Maureen says:

    I’m at the beach right now with my family for a get away weekend. I am reminding everyone to re-apply throughout the weekend.

  23. Courtney A says:

    This is great! I have shared it with my twitter followers and also my neighbors who have young kids like me! I won’t be forgetting the sunscreen this summer!

  24. Kelly Ann T. says:

    I told my twitter follwers and I posted it on Facebook page. I will also tell my family.

  25. Gabrielle says:

    I shared with a colleague who brags about her burns in the summer! ….she has little ones at home who don’t get proper skin safety/care either. Great post!

  26. Ellen says:

    I shared with a friend of mine from Hawaii. She taught me to look at expiration dates. Perfectly good sunscreen failed, because it had expired. I learned the hard way. We are avid sunscreen users and love Neutrogena skin products. I shared it on FB and tagged her.

  27. Liz C. says:

    I emailed my mom, who is a sun groupie. If I win, I’ll be sharing some sunscreen with her!

  28. Dani says:

    I emailed a friend with two young children.

  29. Heather S says:

    I emailed the video to my four sisters!

  30. Deb E says:

    It’s almost always sunny here, so sunscreen is very much needed. I tweeted (https://twitter.com/Deedeethatsmee/status/347075552655577090) since I have more Twitter followers than FB friends. I’m a nurse and always telling people to use sunscreen to protect themselves. Thanks for spreading the news and the giveaway.
