Beyond Coastal Sun Care #Review and #Giveaway

beyond coastal sun care review and giveaway

My kiddos are in the final countdown for the end of school and Memorial Day weekend, which, to them, marks the beginning of all things summer: swimming, hiking, backyard picnics, fishing, camping and riding their bike into the darkness of night.

We are year round sunscreen wearers. We haven’t always been. There was a time I worshiped the fake and bake and we soaked up the sun. Then my dad got skin cancer that left a 6″ scar down the side of his face and just recently he had more skin cancer removed. I never want that for my children. So we play and we protect.

The Divine Miss M is my fairest child. She takes after her dad. When she was a baby we called her “Powder”. I have been diligent in making sure she is protected. It’s non-negotiable and for the most part, she understands it is important.

Beyond Coastal‘s line of natural, family-friendly products that we have recently tried.  The Divine Miss M thinks they smell awesome and I like that the rub into her skin easily. When we are in a rush to get out the door some mornings, I have come to appreciate their Active Facestick. It allows me to apply the sunscreen to the kiddos face and not have to get my hands greasy. It’s so much easier than some of our other sunscreen routines have been.   Li’l Man says it smells like lemonade!

For myself I love the Citrus Grove Lip Balm. It has an SPF 15 and goes on smooth and leaves my lips feeling supple, not greasy.

I really love the Beyond Coastal is more than sunscreen. They use natural ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil, jojoba oil and shea butter so it’s moisturizing and nourishing our skin, while protecting us from the sun. It also saves me the lecture from hubby about all the chemicals I’m smothering the kiddos skin with to protect them.

Beyond Coastal is giving me confidence as we begin our summer fun. The kiddos are looking forward to so many adventures and I will be at peace knowing I have done my part to protect them.

    We LOVE going to the lake, but since its far slip n slides and water balloons are just as good!

    I like the natural clear sunscreen preoduct they have. It is safe for sensitive skin, which my daughter also has..

  14. Bryana West says

    My favorite summer activity is taking my granddaughters to the waterpark.

  16. Angela Jacobsen says

    We love to watch my oldest son play baseball!! We are in Florida so it is very hot sometimes:) But its well worth it!!!

  17. says

    My families favorite fun In the sun activity is definitely going to the beach. The closest beach is about a 2 hour drive from our home, but we have so much fun on road trips, so its well worth the drive. The kids enjoy playing In the water and building sand castles. It gives us a chance to spend quality time together as a family.

    I’d love to try their chapstick/ lip balm and I like that they’re all natural

    Spending the entire at Grand Haven Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan. Then hitting Proto Pups afterwards for the best corn dogs in the world. Oh, afterwards, is dessert – Ice cream!

  20. Jenny Bilderback says

    Our favorite fun in the sun activity is the Zoo! Not only can we see animals (and right now dinosaurs!) but we can swim in the fountain and play in a geyser made to look like old faithful.

  21. judy Shockley says

    beyond costal products are responsible enough to let the consumers know what ing. are in there product

  26. Carrie Phelps says

    Our favorite involves water & swimming! If we can swim in it; ocean, river, lake, pool, we’re happy!

  27. lisa l says

    (Copied and pasted – very relevant)Avoid tanning booths at all costs! The increased portion of UVA rays means the risk of skin cancer is increased by 75% with frequent use. The truth is that tanned skin means the skin has been damaged.

  28. Julie Cutshaw says

    I learned that by signing up for there newsletter you will get a 25percent off code for purchases and I like the vanilla bean lip balm, thanks this would be both great and helpful for our beach trip in June when we take our grandson

  29. Julie Cutshaw says

    It would be going to beach which we seldom get to do, to far to drive. So around here in Tennessee it would be going to the lake to fish or ride the boat

  30. Julie Cutshaw says

    I’m fine and hope you are as well. It sure was hot here. Today in eastern Tennessee, you’d think being in the mountains it would cooler but very humid today.
