Scape Sunscreen Giveaway

A package arrived just in time for the HOTTEST day of the year thus far which just so happened to be the Green River Marathon day.. LUCKY ME!! The wonderful folks at SCAPE HERE had sent me a package of sun care products to test.
SPF 30 Athlete sunblock, they also have SPF 50. I generally do not test new lotions before a LONG run but the words "Waterproof and Sweat proof" convinced me to give it a go. First impression: No Scent!! This sunscreen goes on smooth with no odor. Once on my skin I did not notice the normal sunscreen film. I have sensitive skin, and this product did not cause irritation or itching. After 4 hours of running and sweating with hardly any shade I did not have a sunburn. This product passed the MARATHON test!!
Face Stick. I did not realize that this was a face stick so I have not tested it yet. I am excited to try it out because lord knows that as runners we NEED to protect our faces.
Lip Balm with SPF. I generally do not like lip balms with aloe because the taste is strange. This lip balm was GREAT! I put it on before the race and packed it in my pouch. It has no taste, goes on smooth and protected my lips from the sun.

I'm usually most interested in the sprays, because they seem to go on the easiest. I love the fact that they are fragrance-free.

Kim said...

I'll be sharing this giveaway on my weekly links post, which will post on Saturday.

Kim said...

For my scuba diving, I don't usually wear sunscreen (it is bad for the reefs), but I do wear it when I am out running the sun. I usually wear the spray Coppertone, but I'd love to try something new :)

Amy R. Nelson said...

I'm interested int eh sunblock spray. I've heard they don't give as good as coverage, but I've never tried one.

Amy R. Nelson said...

I have to admit I don't usually protect my skin. I'm terrible like that. I really should. When have skin cancer I'll really regret it.

Steel Springs said...

I like the "technology" page on the website. It's nice to see how Scape stacks up against other types of sunscreen.

Steel Springs said...

I always wear sunscreen. Right now I'm wearing Neutrogena and I love it!

Marlene said...

I need this so badly! I currently use an oil free sunscreen on my face but it DOES get in my eyes and STINGS, which I hate. Ouch!!!

Marlene said...

Checked out the website and I'm liking the spray! That would be so quick & easy!

WannabeRunner said...

I try to always wear sunscreen (safety first!). I switch between the spray suncress (easy to put on) or the Neutrogena (the only one that I find isn't greasy or oily).

madeline said...

I saw their Clean Foam SPF and would be interested in seeing how that works too. Their website is very streamlined, I was excited to discover that they're based in Gardena, CA - that's very close to me!

madeline said...

To protect my skin when I'm outdoors, the first thing I definitely do is put on sunscreen, and depending on the activity, wear a hat and sunglasses. I also try to avoid the peak sun hours and do activities either early in the morning or late afternoon/early evening.

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

(My comment about their website won't win me this giveaway for sure.) Why are all the photos of guys???? Don't girls use sunscreen?

Angie Bishop said...

I thought the sunblock spray looked good as well as the face stick. The foam applicator looks great too! I don't like to get it on the palms of my hands.

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

To protect my skin I usually wear tops that cover and I always use lotion with sunscreen in it. I try to put on sun screen for all my runs. Problem; it runs in my eyes from my forehead...I wear my visor almost always and I wear it really low!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Get ready for a super shout out on my blog...Day 30 post!!!

Angie Bishop said...

I don't have a sun protection solution right now. When I am out walking with the family I have a big floppy hat and we are not out long but for running....I am looking for a good option. I do wear arm sleeves.

Rachel Wasserman said...

I'm so excited to try SCAPE! The thing I love the most about it is that the developer is an endurance athlete himself so he is committed to making products that really work for those of us who train for hours out in the sun!

Haven't won a giveaway yet - hope this is the one that changes my luck!!!

Rachel Wasserman said...

just tweeted about your giveaway @manicdefense

Rachel Wasserman said...

I wear 30 or 50 spf sunscreen and try to also use the special stick kind on my face. I also always make sure to reapply when I transition between a bike ride and a run. Lastly, I find that if you put on the sunscreen at night before you go to bed then it has really soaked in by morning so that it doesn't sweat off as much on a morning run/ride/swim.

Founder of Jog for Joubert Syndrome said...

the foam applicator sunscreen is intriguing.

Founder of Jog for Joubert Syndrome said...

ughh, i hate to admit it but i dont wear sunscreen when running. most times i run when its still dark and i forget to put it on when i run when its light out. i really need to be better about it!!!!

Carly said...

Carly said...

I use spray suncreen before I head outside when I'm exercising. I also use a face mouisterizer with an SPF in it daily.

Carly said...

The fact that this stuff let's your skin breathe is neat. I hate how some subblocks make me feel like I'm overheating!

Tracy said...

I learned a new word. I can't pronounce it though!

Their products are noncomedogenic which means they let your skin breathe and don't raise your core temp. Pretty cool.

Tracy said...

Tracy said...

I don't wear sunscreen because I sweat like crazy so it runs off or burns my eyes. I need me some Scape! :)

Tricia said...

totally digging the lip balm

J said...

A face stick would be super handy! i also think the pre and post workout gels are neat!

Tricia said...

I ALWAYS run in a hat when the sun is up....

right now though...I'm running between 9pm-11pm. Its the only time I dont roast.

Tricia said...

I'm a club member

and I FINALLY have some real miles to update :)

J said...

Usually before running or going outdoors i will put sunscreen on to make sure I don't get burned because I burn really really easily! I also try to wear a hat to shield my face at the beach. i don't have a running hat - I have never tried that.

k2323 said...

Went to Scape and am most interested in the lip balm.

k2323 said...

k2323 said...

I always wear some form of chapstick all day, running or not. My new cheap favorite one is the Up and Up brand at Target! However, I would like to try the Scape lip balm too!

Kristi said...

I really liked the roll-on foam. I don't like having sunscreen all over my hands.

Kristi said...

I am sharing the give-away on my blog - www.swimbikerunstrong.wordpress.com

Kristi said...

I don't protect my skin now, but I know I should. Living in Louisiana, I get alot of sun from March through October. If I could find one that did not make me feel hot or sticky, I would definitely wear it!

Rene' said...

I think that i would like the spray. i hate rubbing stuff in and the lip balm.

Rene' said...

I am not very good at protecting my skin. as bad as it is i still like having a tan and I don't like the drippy feeling especially on my face, eyes etc...i am trying to get better.

Alanna said...

I would love any of it to be honest, especially if it doesn't smell, but like the face stick and lipbalm.

X-Country2 said...

I don't get in the sun much, but happy belated 500th post and happy b-day to your dad. You both have such happy smiles. :o)

Alanna said...

I try to remember sunscreen, but am failing miserably right now... so I'm going with coverage at the moment (hat/sleeves/...). It's still pretty cloudy/rainy here and I haven't really gotten out of my long-sleeve helly base layer yet.

Zoë said...

Scape Clean Foam? That looks pretty cool? I usually like sprays because they are wicked simple to apply, but a lot of the product is wasted in the air.
Also thought the pre and post workout gel looked interesting too.

Zoë said...

I protect my skin by wearing a hat and eye protection (aka my bug windshield). When I know it's going to be sunny, I use sunscreen. But if it's warm, I can't layer...I'm a little heater!

Zoë said...

But of COURSE I'm a Tall Mom 1000+++ member, yo!

Zoë said...

Gave you some FB link love.

LD said...

I'd like to know what "Clean Foam" is. It doesn't go into a lot of detail about it on the website. I do like the fact that you used it and it didn't run into your eyes. I'm forever getting sunscreen in my eyes which is no fun when you're miles from home.

Suzy said...

I went to their site and the geek in me likes that they put some of their scientific information on-line. Also that Meg is on their press page!

Suzy said...

I put the giveaway up on my blog.

Suzy said...

Protecting my skin is important to me. I actually put sunscreen on when I get up in the morning. I reapply sunscreen before I go out and continue to put it on through the day. I also try to buy SPF clothing and hats to wear when I'm out in the sun.

Katie A. said...

Boy, that is a great website! They totally have me sold on how nice and easy it is to keep your skin sunburn free!
I would totally try out the Athlete 50 sunblock, I'm a redhead after all :)
Thanks for the giveaway! I hope I win or I will have to go and actually buy some!

Katie A. said...

I am not always good about protecting my skin when I go out - I'd say 80% of the time I spray the stuff on and the rest my lazy side caves in.
I do always wear sunblock on my face and lips, but my legs and arms and chest are tanned already and it's only the beginning of June!

Katie A. said...

I'm a tall mom member and donater! Thanks again for the giveaway - this is one I really, really, really, really want!
Can you tell? LOL!

Molly said...

I think the face stick is cool, looks very easy to apply.

I always wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Always.

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

I've heard great things about this sunscreen. One thing I would like them to have on their website is the ingredient list. With so many sunscreens having cancer causing chemicals, it would be nice to know what is in this!

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

I always wear sunscreen when I go out for a run, bike ride, or hike. I also wear my visor when I'm running to protect my face even more.

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

I try to wear a hat. And if I am not running and it's not unbearable out, I wear long sleeves/pants. I almost always wear sunscreen outdoors, but am really bad about putting it on before a run. I am hit or miss with it. Maybe if I won I would be better about it.

Michelle said...

The Clean Foam is an interesting product - I've never seen a foam sunblock.

Michelle said...

I try to wear a hat or visor as much as possible because I'm so bad about remembering to apply sunblock before heading out the door!

S Club Mama said...

First I learned it's called Scape not ScRape. Good to know. LOL I also learned the face stick can be applied to sweaty/wet skin. Love that!

S Club Mama said...

I generally apply 50SPF to me and the kids when we go out in the sun. I should do that more often than I do because I know if it's before 10am I don't. I just never know how to balance them getting their Vitamin D vs. saving them from skin cancer.

ajh said...

I am interested in the Facescape as I hate it when sunblock sweats into my eyes.

Christine said...

I checked out their website and found a dealer close by, will check that out soon :)

MUSCLES......

oh wait! I was probably supposed to like look at the site, not just the muscles on the first page.

I like that they give little charts showing how superior SCAPE is to other brands. I also like the videos that were "the lab"! Pretty cool site and easy to navigate.


I like the face stick and spray. These are the ones I would hafve to get!

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

I dont really have to tell you that I, uh...do nothing to protect my skin. I sometimes use sunscreen, when I remember. Saturday I forgot and I had the burn to prove it. I also have super sensitive skin and some sun screens give me a rash. At least I thought it was that but now that I know I have a sun allergy it could have been the sun NOT the sun screen all these years! Hmm....

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

yipEEE! I am a 1,000++++ member!!!!

Courtney said...

I've gotta say, I love their packaging and marketing!
It's interesting that you can apply the face stick to already sweaty skin. Hmm.

Courtney said...

I linked your giveaway in my blog.

Courtney said...

I don't do ANYthing to protect my skin and I run along the ocean in South Florida. Reading all these sunscreen posts lately has made me realize what an idiot I am! lol
I'm definitely going to start wearing something when I go out.

Whitney said...

I like the Clean Foam product. I have had another product with that type of applicator and it is the best.

Whitney said...

I donated to your Marathon for the Cure for the Virtual 5K.

Whitney said...

I use lots of aerosol spray sunscreen for hot summer bike rides.

MCM Mama said...

Does it say what the active ingredient is? I've emailed them about it, but haven't heard back yet. I prefer mineral based sunscreens, so I'd like to know more.

MCM Mama said...

I always wear sunscreen and if I am running, I always have a hat on. I've got extremely pale, sunburn prone skin, so I'm pretty careful.

Scape website comments: love the idea of face stick for grown-ups (we have a water babies stick that the whole family uses, but our "baby" is 6 years old now...!). LOVE the idea of no smell, no pore-clogging, noncomedogenic, etc. My face hates most things with SPF so this could be really great for me. The color scheme makes me think they're trying to tap into LiveStrong...the "nearest" dealer to me (I use the term loosely since I live in Maine) is probably at Marathon Sports at the Boston Marathon finish line, where I plan to have my picture taken this July.

marathonmaiden said...

i love the spray sunscreens, definitely seem easy to use butttt i'd worry that i'm not using enough!

I want to try the lipbalm. I have yet to find SPF lipbalm that I am in love with.

Badgergirl said...

Never tried a sunblock spray. But I'd be up for that since it seems like it would be easier (and quicker) to apply.

Badgergirl said...

I try to remember to use sunblock when I'm outside, but I admit, I'm not the greatest. I try to at least remember to put some on my face (and luckily the moisturizer I use has some SPF in it), but most times I also wear a visor.

Badgergirl said...

Shelley said...

Living in Texas, I so need this! Their website says the Face Stick is portable and can be applied to sweaty skin, which sounds great to me, as I'm so fair that I need to reapply my sunscreen after about 30 minutes in the sun!

Shelley said...

I protect my skin by wearing sunscreen (sometimes - I need to be more diligent) and a hat.

Wehaf said...

I like that their products are designed for athletes, but I wish the website had less flash. I hate animations and moving stuff on websites.

I went to their site. I learned that this is a commonly used brand for triatletes because it stays on in all 3 events!

Kristin said...

What do I do? I am most careful with my face- if I'm running in the sun I use SPF 30 or so and I often wear a visor.

NJ said...

blogged about it.

NJ said...

For skin protection, I always make sure to wear a moisturizer on my face that has SPF in it.

Stella said...

Went to the scape web page and I like the spray, easier to put and not as messy.

Stella said...

I usually use a face cream with spf 15 in it, however I find when running, it goes in my eyes :(

Kimberly Truesdell said...

To protect my skin during runs, I use SPF 50 sweatproof sunscreen that's in spray form.

Kimberly Truesdell said...

I checked out the Scape site, and I looked how user-friendly it was. I also liked the SPF lip balm.

runkerarun said...

The first thing I thought of when I saw the site was Livestrong! Wow they've branded yellow well ;)

I think I definitely need some SPF 50. I'm a pale, pale lady.

I tend to forget sunscreen and such but trying to make a better effort

Alinda said...

I really really want to get my hands on some of this stuff and try it. I get sunburns all the time because sunscreen never lasts until the end of my workout. If Craig Alexander can last through an entire ironman with SCAPE, it should be good enough for me right? Even taking into account that my finishing time will be at least 2x his...

Alinda said...

Alinda said...

I usually try to wear longer sleeves and remember to put on sunscreen, at least SPF 30 or 50, but no matter what, after a 4 mile mid-day bike ride I am toast.

triathena said...

I found your blog through Marathon Maiden. :) I'm also tall - 6'1" and size 11 shoes - so your blog definitely interests me! But, I digress. :) I am a skin cancer survivor so I'm DEFINITELY about sun protection! I love the fact that it's fragrance free, and the bottle has such a unique shape - fits right into your hand! If Craig Alexander can wear it during an Ironman, surely I can make it through a sprint tri next month. :)
