A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
Coppertone is my number one, most trusted brand of sunscreen. I love it. Coppertone sunscreen has protected my family's skin ever since they were little. In fact, as my children are growing up (and yes, getting married now!) Coppertone remains our favorite!
My oldest daughter, Kendallyn, just married her sweetheart, Samuel in Hawaii on February 25th. I had never been to Hawaii in the winter months before, (but plenty of times in the summer) and I was uncertain about how strong the sun's rays would be. I still wanted to make sure we were all protected from getting sunburned.

How exciting it was that I was given the chance to try out Coppertone's newest products just in time for our trip last month! There was not one sunburned body in my group! I received the following products to review:
Coppertone Whipped Sunscreens: Available in the CLEARLYSheer and WaterBABIES lines, these sunscreens offer a luxuriously light, breathable formula that provides trusted broad-spectrum protection in a rich and creamy lotion. This water-resistant sunscreen glides on easily and absorbs quickly, leaving skin feeling velvety soft with a refreshing citrus scent. Coppertone® WaterBABIES® Pure & Simple Free Sunscreen: provides trusted, broad-spectrum protection and is free of fragrance, parabens, PABA and dyes. Coppertone® Sport® Stick SPF 50 and Coppertone WaterBABIES® Pure & Simple Stick SPF 50: Offer the same broad-spectrum protection for athletes and babies, now with wider and easier-to-use packaging that makes sunscreen portable and application mess-free. Coppertone Sport® Lip Balm SPF 50: Delivers quick, convenient sun protection with a new formula, which helps moisturize lips with aloe and Vitamin E while providing broad spectrum protection.
The Makers of Coppertone® Create New Sunscreen Form with First-Ever Whipped Sunscreen
Coppertone continues legacy of transforming sunscreen industry with 2017 product launches
Bayer, the maker of COPPERTONE, announced today the release of a transformative new sunscreen form that’s unlike any other. It offers a light, creamy texture that absorbs quickly into skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Over five years in the making, new Coppertone® Whipped formulas are now available in the CLEARLYSheer® line and the WaterBABIES® Pure & Simple line, delivering consumers broad-spectrum protection and an entirely new sunscreen experience from a trusted brand.
Gone are the days when consumers had to compromise between strong sun protection and desirable product feel. COPPERTONE® Whipped products’ luxurious, gentle formulas surprise and delight while still emphasizing what is most important: broad-spectrum sun protection that should be worn every single day.
“For my patients, one of the biggest barriers to using everyday sun protection is that they dislike how the products feel on skin,” said Dr. Elizabeth K. Hale, Clinical Associate Professor of Dermatology at the New York University School of Medicine and consultant to the makers of Coppertone® products. “Whipped sunscreens not only solve this problem, they also improve the likelihood that people will reapply to themselves and their children, which is essential for protecting their skin against UVA and UVB rays.”
COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer® Whipped Sunscreens, available in SPF 30 and 50, won’t clog pores or cause breakouts, feel clean and light on skin and glide on easily, transforming the experience of applying sunscreen from a mandatory task to something consumers can look forward to doing before they head outdoors.
Coppertone® WaterBABIES® Pure & Simple Whipped Sunscreen is free of fragrance, parabens, PABA, dyes and oil and spreads easily on babies’ skin in a light and soft formula. Available in SPF 50, this water-resistant, broad-spectrum sunscreen makes applying sunscreen much simpler and leaves baby’s delicate skin feeling soft and smooth.
“ At Coppertone, we challenge ourselves every day to transform the industry, to create a product unlike any other, and to give consumers the sunscreens they need,” said Lisa Perez, Marketing Director, Suncare at Bayer. “Our Whipped line meets all of the criteria. We pride ourselves on our long heritage of expert sun protection, starting with the introduction of today’s SPF system and introducing entirely new forms that meet the evolving needs of our consumers.”
Additional 2017 Launches:
Alongside the new Coppertone® Whipped launches, consumers will see additional new products from Coppertone on shelves this year:
- Coppertone® WaterBABIES® Pure & Simple Free Sunscreen provides trusted, broad-spectrum protection and is free of fragrance, parabens, PABA and dyes
- perfect for protecting precious skin from the sun every day with a light, non-irritating formula.
- Coppertone® Sport® Stick SPF 50 and Coppertone WaterBABIES® Pure & Simple Stick SPF 50 offer the same broad-spectrum protection for athletes and babies, now with wider and easier-to-use packaging that makes sunscreen portable and application mess-free.
- Coppertone Sport® Lip Balm SPF 50 delivers quick, convenient sun protection with a new formula, which helps moisturize lips with aloe and Vitamin E while providing broad spectrum protection.
Usually, I cannot stand the feel of sunscreen on my hands, but using COPPERTONE CLEARLYSheer Whipped Sunscreens, (which I had in both SPF 30 and 50) felt like a creamy mousse rather than a greasy lotion. I was very happy to apply it to anyone that asked. Both bottles that I received to review were almost used up because everybody was intrigued at the whipped texture, and how easily it blended into the skin without a lot of rubbing.

*Product received. All opinions are my own.
Although our Oregon's sunny days are far and few between now that winter is approaching, I still believe it is important for my children (as well as myself) to use sunscreen if we are going to spend the day outside. The sun's rays are still damaging even on a cloudy day, and did you know the sun reflects off of snow? I have gotten bad sunburns on my face snowboarding as a teenager.
My Dad has had pre-cancers on his skin removed recently, so it does run in my family tree to have skin cancer. I have fair skin with freckles, so I'd best be cautious. Prevention is key, and Coppertone has answers.
Coppertone has some really great products to keep you and your children safe from the harsh rays of the sun.
I was the lucky recipient of some great products from Coppertone to test out, and I am very pleased!

Taken From The Press Release:
