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.

One Mommy’s Memorandum reader will receive a Beyond Coastal Natural Family sampler pack, which includes:

    (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.

  102. 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

  103. 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.
