One Mom's Sunscreen Nightmare Might Serve As A Warning To You!

July 24, 2015 2 min read

Frayed Mama recently shared a blog post telling a story that is nothing less than a nightmare. On her way to the pool with her kids, she stopped to grab some sunscreen at the local Dollar Tree store as she knew she was getting low. She managed to get everyone slathered but her 9 year old son. For him, she had to use the new bottle. dollar tree sunscreen This is what he looked like 20 hours after they left the pool: sunburn 24 hours: sunburn2 The poor child had second degree burns! There were 5 children and 2 adults present that day but he is the only one to burn like this and he was the only one to use the new sunscreen. 5 days later: sunburn3 sunburn4 9 days later: sunburn5 sunburn6 It is unclear, obviously, what exactly has caused this to happen but it is terrifying. She says they were at the pool for 3 and a half hours and reapplied his sunscreen. Since the other bottle was empty, does this mean she didn't reapply to her other children? She says her children are fair skinned and she pays close attention to the level of their sun exposure, so I find it hard to believe that he is the only one to whom she reapplied the sunscreen. I am not attempting to make this seem any less devastating than it is. Clearly something terrible happened to this boy and this sunblock. No one should ever have to suffer like that. To read the full story and see more pictures, head over to Frayed Mama. Is this a case of defective sunscreen or might it be some other sort of reaction that has happened here? What do you think?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
