As most of you know by now, I’m a huge fan of Mission AthleteCare! Their motto is to Perform, Protect & Rehab.
- Perform – Enhance performance during competition!
- Protect – Combat elements before competition!
- Rehab – Restore body after competition!
Those are things which I can really get behind, particularly when their products are formulated to not only to work for you NOW but also in the future by being paraben free. If you are not familiar with the paraben issue, my friend Bridgett has broken it down into laymen’s terms HERE and uses ScienceDaily as a reference. If I understand it correctly, many scientists are concerned about parabens causing health issues including breast cancer. More information and
scientific detailed reports on the Eves-Best & Livestrong websites. The paraben issue is enough of a concern to make me pay attention to the ingredients in products I buy and be thankful when I come across paraben free items. I’d personally rather be safe now than sorry later.
I have randomly written about Mission AthleteCare products multiple times in the past as I stumble across a new favorite and I have even given way items out of my personal stash for the Favorite Training Items Giveaway. More recently, I talked about the Mission Athletecare EduraCool Towel which Aby and I are still fighting over. You can read that post HERE. I actually read a review on it from another blogger yesterday who didn’t think it was that “cool” but then she also mentioned she lived in a no humidity area. Our towel, that we use in the Midwest, is awesome, stays cool for hours and we find it very refreshing. The fact that it is reusable, washable and big enough
to fight over is just a bonus!
I am also in love with the 5 Hour AntiChafe Stick which I am now using exclusively to combat the infamous chub rub. This product is smoother than some of its competitors, goes on very easily, does not crumble and stays on for hours under very
nasty hot and sweaty conditions. The sticks is $9.99 and I have 2 for the giveaway! I use it for running, triathlon and keep one in my purse for skirt/short days.
The Foot Rehab Cream is a new product to me. It has a light peppermint scent that I love, tingles slightly upon application and helps the feet repair from those long/frequent training runs. This is also a good product if you are in sandals all day, every day and your feet take a beating. The kids and I love this one and hubby is thankful that it’s not nearly as
stinky aromatic as the Burt’s Bees Peppermint Foot lotion that he always complains about we used before we received this. The Foot Rehab is $9.99 and I have 2 to giveaway.
We also just recently ventured into the Mission Athletecare Suncare line. We use so much sunscreen that I should buy stock. Skin Cancer runs in my family so we use it liberally, we frequently reapply, then reapply again. We are constantly outside, at the pool or on the lake and go thru as much as a large spray can of sunscreen (or more!) a day. However, I keep buying different brands because I can’t find one that we like. My biggest complaint is that the sunscreen burns our eyes and is greasy and/or sticky. For a family that runs & plays hard, sunscreen burning the eyes is just not an option but I haven’t been able to get around this problem. One of the Mission ads, below, specifically identifies the problems with sunscreens “stinging eyes, clogging pores, leaving hands greasy” but I was still a little skeptical.
We tried both the Kids Continuous Play SPF 70 and the Sun Defeated SPF 30 which both retail for $9.99 per can. The kids loved this stuff and there was no saving it for a “special” occasion because every time they got called in for sunscreen, Aby would demand that I use the Mission because it didn’t burn her eyes. Ummm….Okay. She didn’t know anything about what it should or shouldn’t do but knew that’s the brand she wanted. That’s as good of an endorsement as I can possibly give so after we use up our current stock of randoms, it will be all Mission sunscreen for us. The applicator worked well, didn’t spray too hard and the spray dried immediately without leaving a sticky film. This was a big win for us! I have 2 cans of Sun Defeated SPF 30 and 1 can of the Kids Continuous Play SPF 70 to give away. This totals 7 items available to win!
