April 28th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
As summertime sun approaches, you'll want to make a list of the must-haves for your outdoor adventures. Trader Joe's Nourish Spray Sunscreen SPF 50 should be at the top of your list. It comes in an easy-spray bottle, yet this is not old-school, CFC-producing, environmentally-damaging aerosol. No, this is new-fangled BOV pressure technology, originally created to power turbo-charged engines, and now used to power the spray pump on our sunscreen. So in a way, it's turbo-charged sunscreen, and that makes it cool. How does it work? It's basically a valve that uses air pressure, rather than chemicals, to force the sunscreen out of the can, so you get a smooth, continuous stream of sunscreen every time you press the button atop the can. It's pretty cool. Especially when it's hot.
And how does it protect your skin? Very well, thank you. Nourish Spray Sunscreen SPF 50 provides UVA & UVB protection, contains aloe and vitamin E, and is oil free and water resistant. The spray-top twists to lock, making this convenient to toss into a purse, backpack or beach bag, without fear of accidental sprays - just remember to twist it to the "locked" position! Our price of $5.99 for each six ounce can is one of the best values we've seen in all of sunscreen-dom. It's also the same price we've had since we introduced this particular sunscreen back in 2011. And you'll find it only at Trader Joe's.
