Summer Escapes with Bayer {Giveaway}

This post is sponsored by Bayer. To make sure these products are right for you, always read and follow the label

The weather is hot hot hot, and July is finally here. If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to wipe off the cobwebs from your weekender bag and plan a summer escape to take in some of the beautiful sights this country has to offer. Whether you’re heading to a cabin in the far neck of the Rockies or a cottage in Muskoka, these essential kits should be at the top of your packing list for a safe and comfortable summer escape.

Essential #1 – the Sun Kit

Your sun kit should include all the essentials you need to make sure you’re not turning in to a lobster, and spending most of your escape treating your sunburns! This means packing sunglasses, hats, lots of water, and of course sunscreen!

If you’re heading outside, always reach for sun protection first – including your Coppertone ClearlySheer SPF 50, Coppertone Sport SPF 30 and Kids SPF 60 sunscreens. And while it’s important to apply 15 minutes before heading outdoors, make sure you are reapplying every two hours or 80 min in or after going in the water.

Essential #2 – the Rainy Day Kit

On the flip side, we’re not always so lucky with our weather, but a little rain shouldn’t ruin your summer escape. Your rainy day kit should include board games, a deck of cards, and lots of pens and paper. While people will often reach for their phones and tablets during the rain, you can still enjoy some family time without the presence of electronics!

Essential #3 – the Snack Kit

My kids would agree with this one (…and frankly, I can’t blame them!), as you’ll need a good snack kit for any trip. My kit usually includes a yummy but healthy mix including a trail mix, granola bars, apples, squeezable fruit pouches, and for a treat the kids will love, everything needed for a campfire s’mores.

Essential #4 – the Medical Kit

With all the outdoor time, you’re bound to encounter some minor scrapes and bruises. Pick up a general first aid kit to be safe, including bandages, disinfectant wipes and gauze. For women, yeast infections can happen anytime, especially in situations with wet bathing suits. Keep CanesOral Combi-Pak on hand for easy and convenient go-to relief so you can get back to being you , and not let it ruin your summer escape.

Essential #5 – the Bug Kit

Nothing says summer like mosquitoes and other little insects. While a fly swatter might do the trick some, you don’t want to forget your Muskol Insect Repellent – it provides eight hours of effective protection against mosquitoes, black flies, and ticks (a growing threat here in Canada) among others.

 

These five essential kits will ensure you can enjoy your summer escapes, and focus on which Instagram filter you want to post with rather than running out to the nearest shop for sunscreen and marshmallows!

What essentials would your family include on your summer escape list?

To help you be prepared for your summer escape, I have one awesome Bayer Summer Essentials Prize Pack valued at $250 to giveaway! It’s packed full of all the essentials you’ll need this summer including sunscreen, allergy meds, blister and athletes foot relief, as well as a handy solar-powered charger!

Giveaway is open to Canadian residents, excluding Quebec. Ends July 28th at 11:59pm est, enter below.
