Bring the Shade with You with the Original Sunscreen

Bring the Shade with You with the Original Sunscreen

As soon as the weather gets warm and sunny, my kids and I love heading outside. I spent last summer rebuilding a patio in my backyard, so I am excited to enjoy the new space while my kids run around and play. However, preferring shade instead, I do not like to sit directly in the sun. I have an outdoor table with an umbrella, but sometimes I still need a little more protection for my computer or phone. When recently offered the chance to review the Original Sunscreen in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity. I received two sunscreens.

Price and Design

The Original Sunscreen is a flexible shade that provides protection from the sun at beach or pool, in the backyard, at sporting events, and more. Made from lightweight but durable aluminum and plastic with a blue finish, the weather-resistant shade measures 16 inches in height, 16 inches in width, and 16 inches in diameter. At just one pound, the sunscreen is light enough to take anywhere. The double-clip also allows you to mount the shade on almost any flat surface. The Original Sunscreen currently costs $19.99 on Wayfair with a list price of $39.95.

Evaluation

I try to avoid the sun during the hottest times of the day. I have super light skin and burn easily. My kids are slightly darker in complexion than me, but both are still super fair. To protect our skin from the damaging effects of the sun, I keep plenty of sunscreen on hand. But I still prefer to hang out in the shade whenever possible. With the Original Sunscreen, I can now bring the shade with me anywhere!

When I first opened my Original Sunscreen box, I was incredibly impressed with the design. The double-sided clip allows you to easily take the shade on-the-go. Simply unclip the arm from the shade and be on your way. The adjustable arm additionally allows you to move the shade around as needed. I can raise and lower the shade and also adjust the angle so that I can get the perfect amount of shade every time.

What I love most about the Original Sunscreen is the flexibility of the shade. I have so far clipped the shade to my outdoor table and outdoor chairs. However, the Original Sunshade offers endless uses. When I go to the park with my kiddos, I can attach my own shade to the back of my portable folding chair. When I push my son around in his umbrella stroller, I can clip the shade over him to keep him out of the sun. If you can find a flat surface on which to attach the clips, you can bring your own shade with you with the Original Sunscreen!

Transcript: Hi! I’m Heather from The Parenting Patch. I received samples of the Original Sunscreen in exchange for my honest opinion. The Original Sunscreen is a flexible shade that provides protection from the sun at the beach or pool, in the backyard, at sporting events, and more. Made from lightweight but durable aluminum and plastic with a blue finish, the weather-resistant shade measures 16 inches in height, 16 inches in width, and 16 inches in diameter. At just one pound, the sunscreen is light enough to take anywhere. The double-clip also allows you to mount the shade on almost any flat surface.

Because I have super light skin and burn easily, I seek out the shade whenever possible. With the Original Sunscreen, I can now bring the shade with me anywhere. To use the Original Sunscreen, remove both pieces from the box and then clip the arm to the shade. Attach the second clip to any flat surface such as a table, chair, or stroller. Finally bend the adjustable arm to move the shade around as needed. I love that I can raise and lower the shade and also adjust the angle so that I can get the perfect amount of shade every time. I also love the flexibility of the Original Sunscreen. I can clip the flexible shade to my outdoor table and outdoor chairs, to my portable chair at the park, and even to my son’s umbrella stroller.

If you too seek the shade, I highly recommend the Original Sunscreen. The highly affordable and portable UV blocker allows you to bring your own shade with you. I will definitely be using mine all summer long! For more information about the Original Sunscreen, be sure to check out my full review on The Parenting Patch.

Final Verdict

If you too seek the shade during sunny weather, I highly recommend the Original Sunscreen. The Original Sunscreen is a flexible shade that provides protection from the sun at the beach or pool, in the backyard, at sporting events, and more. Made from lightweight aluminum and plastic, the weather-resistant shade measures 16 inches in height, 16 inches in width, and 16 inches in diameter and weighs only one pound for maximum portability. I can clip the flexible shade to my outdoor table and outdoor chairs, to my portable chair at the park, and even to my son’s umbrella stroller. I will definitely be using my Original Sunscreen all summer long!
