Since 1982, Arizona Sun has been creating the most natural form of sunscreen products right here in Scottsdale, Arizona. The sunscreen and skincare business you’ve come to trust started in the living room of founders Robert and Ellen Wallace. Fast forward to today, Arizona Sun is run by Robert and his daughter, Lindsey Wallace. Over the years, they’ve developed the best Arizona gifts and souvenirs which have become some of their own personal favorites they use every day.
Sunburn Relief with Aloe Vera
One of our most popular products is also a favorite of Lindsey’s. Believe it or not, Sunburn Relief Gel isn’t just for sunburns! This gel is handy in the kitchen and bathroom as it helps with minor burns and scrapes. If you’re prone to razor burn, use a little in combination with Arizona Sun Moisturizer to soothe and nourish your skin. Lindsey is an avid mountain biker and competes in Iron Man races. Living in the desert, it’s easy to get a little scraped up from running, biking, or hiking on the trails. She relies on Sunburn Relief Gel to help alleviate burning and pain from cuts and scrapes along the way. Add this blue miracle gel to your first aid kit; it’s packed with aloe vera, nature’s healing medicine.
Founder Favorites: Bath Products
Another favorite of Lindsey’s is the Bath and Shower Gelee that makes an excellent shaving gel. Typical shaving cream doesn’t have moisturizing ingredients, leaving your legs and other areas of your body feeling dry and irritated afterward. Arizona Sun Bath and Shower Gelee have nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E, Jojoba extract, Aloe Vera, and Cactus extract. After using it as a body wash or shave gel, follow up with Arizona Sun Moisturizer to lock in moisture lost when showering or bathing. Robert also loves using Arizona Sun Moisturizer as a facial moisturizer after shaving, “I developed the fragrance 39 years ago and it’s still my favorite desert botanical fragrance. It’s non-greasy, absorbs in the skin, and I use it after I shave to keep my skin moisturized and soft.” With this dynamic duo, your skin will be soft and hydrated all day long. This pair makes a great Arizona gift for those missing the desert or are in need of a scent of the American Southwest.
Founder Favorites: Go-to Sunscreens
As mentioned above, Lindsey spends a lot of time outdoors being active in biking, kayaking, and more. For her, having a spray-on sunscreen that holds up in the desert heat through sweaty activities is a must, “ I wear this any time I’m outdoors. I love that it’s non-greasy and water-resistant and use it when I hike, play tennis, golf, paddleboard, and kayak. It goes with me everywhere and protects me from the sun, smells fantastic, and absorbs into my skin. It is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors.” Robert prefers Arizona Sun Oil-Free SPF 30 as it works dually as sun protection and as a daily facial moisturizer. Keeping your skin hydrated in the desert isn’t easy, but Arizona Sun sure makes it a lot easier. Visit our Founder Favorites page to discover all of Robert and Lindsey’s go-to Arizona Sun products. These make great Arizona gifts for the holidays and beyond!
