Ad: Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 30, Clear Face Broad Spectrum SPF 55 and Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Products

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the products for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the products.

I am so thrilled to have this opportunity to review these Neutrogena sunscreen products. As many of you know, my family and I live in hot Las Vegas. This summer we've been experiencing brutal temperatures over 110 degrees.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55 and Neutrogena Beach Defense Water & Sun Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Last year, I suffered from a sunburn, on my legs, while lounging, at the pool, after a swim. It was not only extremely painful but also a learning experience for this brown woman. It was a wake up call. People of color can and do get sunburned. And worst, we can develop skin cancer. So, it's very important that we learn how to protect ourselves from the deadly UVB rays.

Before I head to the pool, this summer, I make sure to generously apply Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 to my body, including chest area, hands and feet. (15 minutes before going out) Then I apply the Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55 on my face and ears.

When I'm out running errands or taking a quick walk around the neighborhood, I apply Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It's lightweight, fast absorbing non-scent appeals to my husband and son too.

Did you know that the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen line is recommended for people of color due to the fact that it doesn't leave an ashy look like some other sunscreen product do?

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
