However, I was very happy yesterday, because I received another envelope from Stefano, and this time.......ding ding ding! Success!
Stefano sent me another keychain, this time from his trip to Brussels, along with a kind note and DVD that shows the seaport where he works. I had to laugh when I saw the keychain, it's a depiction of the Manneken Pis, a statue of a little boy peeing into the water below him. Mike and I actually had dinner not to far from the statue during our visit to Brussels several years ago.
Brussels has really good Belgian Waffles:
And now.....giveaway time!!!
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. It is now June, but that's no excuse, you need to wear sunblock every, single, day, 90% of skin cancers are caused by sun exposure, and 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Scary.
I wear sunblock, but my issues are that it either makes me break out, or when I sweat or swim, it drips into my eyes, which is never fun.
This is where SCAPE comes in. It was developed by Dr. Nic Martens, a Triathlete and surfer, who knew exactly what athletes needed when it comes to skin protection. SCAPE is waterproof, sweatproof, and noncomedogenic (no breakouts!).
I first started using SCAPE last summer, during all my hot, outdoor marathon training runs. I used the SPF 30 Athlete Sunblock on my body, and for my face, I protected it with the Lip Balm, and the SPF 50 Face Stick. I loved the stick, I would use it like a magic marker, and swipe it along my hairline, forehead, down my nose, and under my eyes. It never ran, and I didn't burn.
This is an interesting point, when I used the lotion on my body, I felt like my skin didn't get as hot as it would have without the lotion. As I read more about the product, I learned that SCAPE helps the skin breathe, it prevents dehydration, and as a result, your body temperature stays regulated while being active.
So for today's giveaway to benefit The Children's Tumor Foundation, I have a SCAPE Moisturizing Face Stick, SPF 50, along with a bunch of sachets of the SPF 50 lotion, which are perfect for keeping in your car, purse, or gym bag.
