You guys know Living Libations have my heart! This product is exceptional too. Ingredients are next level natural, the ethos behind the brand are exceptional and I can’t get enough of them even after years of using these products. Ever heard of a SPF product with frankincense, sandalwood, turmeric, calendula and carrot seed oil? If ingredient list like this does not make your heart sing, I don’t know what will 🙂 There are two variants of these SPF products, the oil with zinc and the beach balm that comes in three different sizes from a lip balm tube to a big tube that looks kind of like a deodorant. The latter is so handy to carry around and for travels. I never want to be without them!
INGREDIENTS: Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba), Cocos nucifera (Virgin Coconut) Oil, Theobroma cacao (Cacao Butter), Hippophae rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn), Zinc Oxide, Rubus idaeus (Raspberry Seed), Calophyllum inophyllum (Tamanu), Schisandra chinensis (Schizandra), Myrica pubescens (Laurel Wax), Helichrysum italicum (Immortelle), Daucus carota (Carrot Seed), Rosa damascena (Rose Otto), Eriocephalus punctualatus (Cape Chamomile), Boswellia carterii (Frankincense), Santalum album (Sandalwood), Zingiber officinale (Ginger), Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender), Pelargonium graveolens (Geranium), Thyme vulgaris linalool (Sweet Thyme), Curcuma longa (Turmeric), Calendula officinalis (Calendula), and Cymbopogon martini (Palmarosa).
PS. Not only these protect me from the sun, but they also heal my dermatitis outbreaks – say what??! True story bro – just check my review below.

Another one of my favourites and daily must haves! I too can’t get enough of this brand on the whole (search for more than 10 products reviews on my blog) and I loved this since the day it was launched. Well, maybe this was a love from a second sight, but let me clarity – the formula was/is great, but the first product launched was far too dark for me. Now that they introduced shade light, I am a happy gal. This too has a review on my blog, please feel free to check it out if You want more of my thoughts. The consistency is creamy and light, it is a dream to apply and rub in. Sinks in quickly leaving no stickiness or residue and because it is tinted, it is very easy to see where you apply. The finish is dewy but not greasy, the skin looks luminous. It is tinted, but the coverage is light. It is non drying at all, which pleases me to no end, as I find most of the face SPF products drying. It contains caprylic tryglicerides, which is coconut derivatives and sometimes break me out – but this product does not, there’s something magical about this formula. So, all in all, I must say I am very impressed with this product!

There’s nothing worse than sunburned and blistering lips, so don’t forget Your lips when out in the sun! For me it is a must, as it is one of the first places I can feel burning. Hurraw is famed brand for the best natural raw ingredients lip balms. The are loved worldwide and for a good reason. I love them too and while I never reviewed them separately, You can see my thoughts in this post below. Yes, this is white, but if that bothers You, You can apply lipstick or a lip gloss over it.

TRILOGY MULTI-SHIELD MOISTURISER SPF15
I’ll be honest this is my least used option, but I still wanted to throw it in the mix. Nothing bad with the product, it’s just that I am so in love with these other options that I never reach for anything else.. It could be Your perfect product if You are after light tinted moisturiser with a little bit of spf in it. Non nano formula with my beloved rosehip oil in it. Rubs in clear, hurray or what? Non greasy too.

I raised my two kids on this one, no burns ever! Of course we tried other/ cheaper options. We burned, cried and went back to this every time. Now that summer comes around I don’t even do my research what new natural sunscreens are out there, what are the ingredients and reviews of them. Nope, I go straight for this.
