Sand Gone: A Must for Beach-Goers (WIN)

When I was in my tweens, I hated the beach. I much preferred the pool. Why? Sand. I knew it was uncomfortable as a kid, but as a tween it drove me bonkers to be sticky and sandy. By then I was happier to be by and in chlorinated water.
As an older teen, I started liking the beach more, with the sound of the waves and warm sun – but I did everything I could to avoid getting wet and sandy. Then I got married and my husband dealt with my idiosyncrasy. We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and while he got wet and sandy, I lounged on the beach. I loved it.
But then kids came … and you can’t seem to keep a toddler or preschooler from getting wet, sandy and sticky at the beach. And I had to leave the comfort zone of my pristine towel and sit at the shore’s edge, building sand castles, digging holes and chasing crabs. And I loved every second of it … except the sand.
Now, I cannot be the only one like this! In fact, I just discovered a product that is a must for beachgoers – Sand Gone! It is a light powder that you dust on after you get sandy … and the sand just falls off. Plus, your skin feels so smooth! It smells great, like the beach. It seems like they somehow caught the fragrance of the seawind, salt water and a little bit of sun lotion and added it to the powder!
I have been anxiously awaiting an opportunity to try this with the sticky sand on the East Coast of Florida, but we still haven’t made it out there yet … it’s a bit of a drive for us. But you know where else this works…something moms will LOVE! Sand boxes and sandy playgrounds. Many playgrounds use fine sand as their base for kids to run around in and shovel. But many parents are fretful with the amount of sand the kids get on them. But just like you put sun lotion on the kids before they play, now you can dust the sand off your kids with this powder! And it’s good for backyard sand boxes too!
Now that it is warming up, be sure to pack your summer totes with towels, sun lotion, kids sunglasses and yours, uv shirts, change of clothes, flip flops/sandals – and SAND GONE! Keep the sand where it belongs … at the beach, not your car or home!
SAND GONE is non-toxic, non-talc, easy to apply and use, smells great, feels smooth, is priced right and is awesome.
