If you are anything like me, cruelty free vegan sunscreen is an absolute must in the summer! I just burn so damn easily! One moment it's all fun in the sun on the beach, the next I'm waddling around looking like a lobster. And believe me, my lobster impression does not do them justice. And with summer on the way and a real desire to get out and enjoy it... well, I'm in need of some good sunscreen, just like I'm sure you guys are too!
Now, this one isn't JUST sunscreen, it also counts as a primer! A primer with SPF 30! I might not wear makeup, but if I didn't I know I'd want to give this a try. People were saying that it isn't greasy and even has a bit of a moisturizing affect on their skin, which I think is always a plus.
So, here is a safe, natural sunscreen that you can use on your babies over 6 months old! We all know how sensitive little kids skin is, so its important to protect them from the sun, and ALSO to protect them from potentially harmful chemicals that are in some products! But, this product doesn't just work on the little ones, it's also good for the adults in the family!
If you're wanting something with a little more oomph to it, this is definitely something you might want to try. This Ocean Potion smells like an orange creamsicle with SPF 50 broad spectrum protection. It apparently absorbs really fast and stays around and keeps you safe for awhile!
This one is another cruelty free vegan sunscreen, but it does have some mixed reviews on amazon. Some people say it worked wonders while others say it didn't work at all! Some people felt like it had a soothing, moisturizing affect and others had bad reactions to it. Overall, this sunscreen IS vegan, and I think it could be wonderful, but it obviously isn't for everyone and you'll have to make your own judgement call on that.
People really praised this sunscreen as being really easy to absorb, light on scent so that it isn't abrasive and it's all natural. Some reported that it does have a slight white cast, but that it wasn't bad enough to deter them from using it again. The only think to note is that this is NOT water resistant, so it's not a good choice if you're wanting it for at the beach. It would be a great pick to take to the park or for hiking though!
Last, but certainly not least is the Sun Bum vegan sunscreen. It has multiple levels of SPF protection, ranging from 15 all the way up to 70, and they are all vegan and cruelty free. I really thought this was a great product to feature because of it's wide range of protection levels. Plus, just about all the buzz around them is pretty positive, saying that it goes on smooth and really works.
