In the warm months, my family and I like to spend a lot of time outdoors. Whether we are hiking up Stone Mountain or just strolling around the neighborhood, Team Bradshaw likes to stay on the move. One of our favorite places to take little Danger is a local splash park. The combination of warm sunshine and the sound of the cool water splattering all around us is very soothing and refreshing. With so much sun exposure, I am very adamant about choosing the right sun protection to keep us all healthy. There are so many different sunscreens on the market that it can be difficult to find something that is not only strong enough to protect but also long-lasting and waterproof for all of the activities that we participate in. Sometimes it's just easier to grab whatever is on sale and run to the checkout counter.
I won't be doing that anymore.
After learning about how conventional sunscreens often contain harsh chemicals and toxins that seep through our pores and cause illness, I decided that I would be more informed about the skincare products that I purchase for my family. While I always believed that natural products are better than conventional, I did not know that the selection of natural products is so extensive!
I've tried several different brands of sunscreen products from natural brands, but have not always been impressed with the results. One type that I tried before did not fully protect our skin, as it wore off so quickly. Another type protected us but left a white film on our skin (and forget about applying it to the face!) That's why I was more than excited to try out the line of sun products from Beyond Coastal.
So far, I've tried out several of the Beyond Coastal products and I will admit - I really like them! I was a little skeptical at first, as I have been let down in the past with other natural sunscreens. The Beyond Coastal products not only protected our skin from the sun, but also went on very smoothly and evenly.
My toddler was very happy with how the Kids 30+ Natural Sunscreen felt when I applied it to her skin. She didn't complain once about it being sticky, oily or stinky! As for me, I was happy that it provided effective sun protection while still being the right consistency to put on our faces.
My husband enjoyed the Beyond Coastal sun care line so much that he took a couple of the products with him to India for the month! His favorites are the Beyond Coastal Active Face Stick and the Active Balm.
