        BennKai Microfiber Quick-Dry Towel

        My husband Will is on the go all day at work, and generally outside in this heat. He has complained a few times about sweat dripping down into his eyes all day long, and this might be a handy little keychain attachment to help with that problem. This little towel is about 15 inches by 15 inches and easily folds (or squishes) back inside its silicone keychain cube when you are done using it.

          Lux Pro Mini Keychain Lantern – Retail Value $7.99

          I used to always have one of these on my keychains until I became super reliant on using my built-in iPhone flashlight. Perhaps it would be wise to get into the habit of carrying a backup? At the very least, this little light is very useful for stashing somewhere closeby around the house in case of a power outage, snapping to your dog’s collar for a nighttime walk, or taking on a camping trip. The white tip diffuses the bright light in a way that manages to be both super bright but also not blinding.

            Solar Goo Sunscreen Stick, 17 g – Retail Value $9.95

            My seasonal battle with Will over his lack of sun protection rages on. Every time I get a new sunscreen, I discreetly slip it into his workbag in hopes that this one, maybe, will be the magical sunscreen that gets used. This one has some major points in its favor, namely, it’s an easy-to-apply stick, it has a fragrance-free formula, and it offers a lightweight finish. It does go on a little white, but that quickly disappears when you rub it in. It is also reef safe, though Will spends his time on the road at work, not on the beach.

            Verdict: Nomadik had quite a few helpful summer items this month. I am really happy this box featured at least two items Will would really like, namely the can cooler and the portable mini towel. Hopefully, he will also learn to appreciate the sunscreen stick? I plan on attaching the little keychain to my car keys. This isn’t one of those subscriptions that knocks your socks off with a high value, but is more of a box that sends high-quality and thoughtfully-chosen items you can actually use, and that suits me just fine!

            I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

            1. Hey Megan
              If skin cancer horror stories don’t work to get him to wear sunscreen, try a different kind of sunscreen. My husband lost his father to melanoma 3 years ago (my husband is in his 30s, his dad was 62 when he passed) but even that wasn’t enough to get him to start wearing sunscreen. What finally did it was buying powdered sunscreen for him. It doesn’t get goopy in his beard, leave a white cast on his face, or make him sweat more like lotion sunscreen can.

              The Colorescience powdered sunscreen product comes in different skin tones so you can match it to his skin and make it invisible. My husband truly is happy to wear sunscreen now. It’s an expensive product but honestly it served as a gateway sunscreen, if you will. A year or so after he started using it, he graduated to a face lotion that has SPF in it so now just uses the powder on his ears and neck, and as the occasional quick touch up while golfing or something. You can also sometimes find it in multipacks on Costco or Sam’s Club websites which reduces the price.

              Give this elegant powder sunscreen a try for your husband. Yes you can’t guarantee you are getting as good of coverage as what you apply to your own face daily with a glob of lotion… but it is WAY better than nothing and I noticed he rarely came home with a bright red neck and nose from being outside at work after he started using the Colorescience powder.

            2. Megan, what a great idea to clip that light onto your dog’s collar! Brilliant!

              I am NOT an outdoors kind of gal. However, I signed up for the June box after seeing the main spoiler. I’m a major soda addict. I know that’s terribly unhealthy but the good news is that one can usually lasts me 6+ hours as I tend to just “nurse” them. They ALWAYS get warm and/or go flat before I finish a whole can. Of course I always use the foam or whatever other type of material coozies (sp?)
              but they’re not that helpful. I had high hopes for this clunky-looking drink preserver after reading very positive reviews. It did not disappoint! I doubt it works as well outside, but it keeps my cans of soda in great, totally drinkable shape for hours and hours. It’s shocking how long they stay cold or at least cool.

              The cost of the box was about the same as buying it alone online but I saved a few bucks with a discount code plus got the extra items. I canceled right after this box since it was just a fluke for a sub like this to appeal to me. Now I wish I’d signed up with two different accounts so I could have a back up. I’m interested in how it will perform when I take it to the beach next week.

              As for the sunscreen dilemma, try telling Will the following horror story. I once worked with a girl who had a husband that worked outside all day for years. In his mid to late thirties he got skin cancer on his nose and had to have it cut out. Not attractive, but not freak show level damage. Afterward she begged him to start using sunscreen but he wouldn’t. He would sweat and get it in his eyes. So she begged him to at least wear a hat every day. He had no good excuse not to, but he didn’t comply. Less than a year later the cancer on his nose came back with a vengeance and he literally had to have a chunk of the top of his nose removed. As you might imagine, that forever put quite a damper on family photos among other things. Maybe this will scare him into listening to you on this very serious issue. I hope so!
