Living Libations Everyone Loves The Sunshine With Zinc Beach Balm

This is my sunscreen of choice for years and years and years now. Living Libations is a brand like no other, way above and beyond organic, fair trade, wildcrafted and everything else You want a natural brand to be. This convenient stick packaging takes me to places, protects my family from the sun but that’s not the end of what it does – it also saves my skin when my dermatitis is acting up, no joke. That’s exactly why I will keep purchasing it till I cease to exist. Living Libations, if You are reading this, please never discontinue this. Or any other products from Your lines. See the review below for my thoughts in detail. I purchase this from the brand directly or from Dutch Health Store or from Live In The Light. Links at the end of this post.

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).

Living Libations Everybody Loves the Sunshine with Zinc Beach Balm Review

Living Libations Everyone Loves The Sunshine With Zinc

Coola Liplux Tinted Lip Balm SPF 30 (Nude Beach)

Having tried a few lip SPF products and seeing how white they all make my lips look, I was very keen to search for tinted ones. There are not too many of them, even less in my neck of the woods. I’ve settled on Coola for now, but I am not too sure if this is my ride or die. This has lots of good points to it, like 70% organic ingredients and being reef friendly. But I feel it does not protect my lips, they still burn, plus the ingredients list is not really up to my standards. If You know a good lip SPF product, do let me know.

INCI: All Shades Active Ingredients (Sunscreen): Titanium Dioxide - 3.6%, Zinc Oxide - 3.0%Please note that Coola includes chemical sunscreens and therefore the brand can't be considered as natural cosmetics.

Nude Beach Inactive Ingredients: Acacia Decurrens Flower Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (ORGANIC Shea Butter), C18-38 Alkyl Hydroxystearoyl Stearate, Cocos Nucifera (ORGANIC Coconut) Oil, Copernicia Cerifera (ORGANIC Carnauba) Wax, Flavor, Helianthus Annuus (ORGANIC Sunflower) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Iron Oxides, Jojoba Esters, Mica, Octyldodecyl Oleate, Octyldodecyl PCA, Olea Europaea (ORGANIC Olive) Fruit Oil, Persea Gratissima (ORGANIC Avocado) Oil, Polyglycerin-3, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis (ORGANIC Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Schinziophyton Rautanenii Kernel Oil (ORGANIC)*, Silica, Stevia Rebaudiana Extract, Theobroma Cacao (ORGANIC Cocoa) Seed Butter, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter (ORGANIC)


Hurraw Sun Balm SPF15

This is actually in my rotation for a half of the decade if not more. Overall it is good and I like it, but since it has semi low SPF factor and makes my lips semi white, I tried to move on the other products like Coola. Since it works decently and is about four times cheaper than Coola one, I still keep it around. Nothing bad to say about it, really. Love Hurraw as a brand too. Lots of shops dropped this brand, so now I get it from iHerb.

INGREDIENTS: *Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, ***Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, **Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, **Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel wax, *Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, *Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, *Rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed, *Hippophae rhamnoides (seabuckthorn) seed oil, *Punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil, Tocopherols (sunflower), *Citrus reticulata (tangerine) peel oil, ***Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extract, **Vanilla planifolia (vanilla) bean

active sunscreen ingredient: non-nano zinc oxide 10%
*cold pressed / organic **raw & organic ***wildcrafted

My current favourite natural sunscreens – 2022 – Green Life In Dublin

*Two honorable mentions for the good sunscreens I love but currently don’t have. Please step forward:


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. I do not have this right now as we are not going on sun holidays this year. In Ireland we don’t get burning sun, like ever. Plus we are inside, pretty much all the time.


Loved it to bits, but now it is reformulated to EVOLVE CLIMATE DEFENCE FACIAL CREAM SPF 30. I haven’t got it yet because I have enough sunscreens to last this summer. From what I’ve seen, this is now not tinted (sob!) and comes in sugarcane tube rather than glass pump bottle.¬† I am yet to compare ingredients too. Not too sure why they reformulated it, it was perfect in my opinion. I will try it eventually, but in my own good time, when I will run out of things I am currently using. I do not like having too many same category products open at the same time.
