The team from Dermatone recently reached out to me with an opportunity to check out some of their products as I get ready for summer running, vacations, and fun in the sun. Even though I know that sunscreen is important especially on my long runs, I have always struggled with finding sunscreen that works well yet is comfortable for running (not sticky, heavy, or gross feeling). The best part is that most of the Dermatone products are TSA compliant in size for my upcoming racecations as well as a nice size to go into my running bag or purse!
One thing that I have learned over the years is that sunscreen is not a "one size fits all" thing. There are different SPF strengths, different applications, and more. The Dermatone line covers a wide range of options for there preferences or needs that you might have and I was excited to dig in and try some out to see what was the best "fit" for my needs and lifestyle.
One of my absolute favorite items was the Dermatone No-Touch Stick. The Dermatone No-Touch stick is a 0.49 ounce stick that was created to offer a sunscreen application for when you need your hands to be clean and dry. With a number of obstacle course races this summer, this will come in handy. When I am doing grip strength obstacles, the last thing I needs is greasy sunscreen residue on my hand preventing me from holding on to the obstacle. The Dermatone No-Touch Stick is perfect for face, ears, arms, and really just about anywhere you need to apply. the Dermatone No-Touch Stick offers a high SPF 50 protection rating that provides broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. Perfect for golf, fishing, skiing, snowboarding and more. Due to its stick formula, I am able to carry this in my carry-on suitcase when traveling and keep in my running bag for race day and those long runs.
I don't know about you, but my lips get so dry and chapped year round - especially on long runs - and I am constantly looking for a GOOD lip balm to protect and soothe my lips. Plus in the summer sun, I don't want to get burned lips (neither do you - TRUST ME). I am a bit of a self-proclaimed lip balm snob, but the Dermatone lip balm is amazing! It goes on so smooth and isn't "goopy" or gritty. Since it has SPF 23, I know my lips will feel great and be protected out in the summer sun. This is definitely going to be a staple in my running bag ASAP! Since Dermatone Lip Balm is created with a denser formulation, they offer superior coverage and longer lasting protection which means no need to keep reapplying constantly. .
A huge thank you again to the team at Dermatone for giving me the chance to check out some of their products and get me ready for some SAFE fun in the sun this summer!
