Summer & Sun = protection
Its summer & a Long Holiday weekend as we try to hang on to summer ! Its time to hit the out doors ! And the two things that are important are staying hydrated + wearing your SPF . Of course finding a organic Sunscreen is a tough task specially one that works and does not leave you LOOKING like CASPER the friendly ghost .Thanks to Block Island Organics they send me their sunscreen to give it a test drive . In which I been using for the last months of summer including this Labor Day weekend !
LOOKING at Ingredients :

HAS KEY INGREDIENTS for SUN EXPOSED SKIN :
The ingredients on this sun screen are the BEST & CLEAN I seen , LOVE how it has a short list of ingredients compared to many sunscreens & how it has jojoba oil, She Butter, & coconut oil that keeps the skin soft yet very moisturizer & hydrated ! In addition it also has great nourish ingredients like Green Tea Leaf Extract & Aloe Vera that have great skin healing benefits . Some thing that is very important for skin healing specially after sun tan or exposed to the sun !!! Even more important the product is MADE right HERE In USA & Its also VEGAN !!
what makes the Island Block Organics different & impress me was its texture !! It has a smooth cream texture that is yet light and sink right in once you rub the cream into the skin AS YOU CAN SEE IN ABOVE PHOTO .
It does not give me the Casper affect of leaving me looking like a ghost !!! That’s a WIN WIN . In addition to Not been sticky or leaving your skin feeling heavy or like you have another layer skin … YOU know what I MEAN 🙂
Of course like any sunscreen it needs to be reapply after a few hours but even after applying some more during the day it still did not feel heavy .
I got to say I am so happy to have been introduce to this sunscreen because it works and feels good ! Block Island Organics did a great job in making a sunscreen that is effective, ORGANIC & CASPER FREE !
