Disclaimer: I received a bottle of Block Island Organic sunscreen in exchange for a review. As always all opinions are my own.
Summer is going byyyy quickly. Which makes me sad because I have not gone to the beach as often as I would have liked. I need to remedy that STAT especially as I live wicked close to the beach.
I spent my Fourth of July holiday doing just that. Here’s an interesting fact about me: I don’t know how to swim but put me in the ocean and you’d think I was a fish in another life. I love the water. After leaving out house a little late, off to the beach we went – along with the entirety of Long Island. Fortunately we got a good spot by the water.
Another fact about me: I’m very pale. I probably am the palest Latina you’ll ever meet. So skin protection is very important to me. A few years back I got a very bad case of sun poisoning where my skin looked neon, that’s how red I was. I was a lobster. When I went to NOLA a few weeks back, I got sunburned there too because Southern sun is no joke despite putting on sunblock.
That’s why I was glad to tout my bottle of Block Island’s Natural Mineral (zinc only) Sunscreen – SPF 30 with me. Skin protection is important not just at the beach but everyday.
What I like about Block Island’s Natural Mineral Sundcreen as well as all of Block Island‘s products is that they are free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, dyes and artificial fragrances. They also don’t do animal testing (great as I am huge animal lover) and use vegan-based formulas.
And after an entire day of the beach and also normal every day wear, my skin was fine. Not a drop of sunburn in sight. The sunscreen goes on easily – you’re not constantly trying to rub it in. It doesn’t feel greasy or cakey.
Right now Block Island Organics is giving you the chance to try their sunscreen and products at 15% off with the key word Kasandra. The discount code is good through next Tuesday, July 21st. Please note the code is not combinable with other codes.
Thanks so much Block Organics for letting me try out your sunscreen.
Now I just need to get back to the beach!
