Block Island Organics Sunscreen Review & Giveaway! {Ended}


Block Island Organics Review & Giveaway!I know that a sunscreen review seems a little bit out of the box from the products I normally blog about but when I was contacted by Block Island Organics asking me to check out their sun care products I was really excited!

Honestly, as a mom, I am kind of a sunscreen stickler and am very particular with what I put on my children’s bodies.  I have always been this way and hold the highest standards (I am one of those mom’s that researches everything) so I don’t use just any sunscreen.  I also have really sensitive skin and am always afraid I have passed that onto my children so I try to be extra careful and use only unscented, natural products that are free from fragrance and chemicals.Block Island Organics Review & Giveaway

Block Island Organics actually happens to meet all of my requirements and was even named by the Environmental Working Group (EWC) as a 2014 top pick as one of the safest and most effective sun protection products.  The EWC’s guide is one of the resources I use when picking out sunscreen so I was ecstatic to hear this.  All of their products are non-toxic, mineral based (zinc & titantium), non-comedogenic, vegan formulated, paraben free, phthalate free, nano particle free, artificial fragrance free, non-eye irritating, not tested on animals, and even made in the USA!

Block Island Organics carries three lines of products; protection, repair and baby.  They were nice enough to send me their Baby Block SPF 30 to try out. The Baby Block is a natural zinc only, organic, lightweight sunscreen that is safe for babies over 6 months old and those with sensitive skin (hi, that would be me!).  The block is water resistant for 40 minutes and provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and is recommended to apply with the philosophy of “a lot goes a long way”.

While the weather has been quite rainy here in the last two weeks, we were lucky enough to be given a short reprieve from the rain the other day and took advantage to play outside! I also used this opportunity to test out the sunscreen on both children and myself and I have to say that I was more than impressed! Block Island Organics Review & Giveaway!

Although it is described as lightweight I was hesitant to believe it.  Other high quality baby sunscreens that I have used are thick and don’t absorb so well, which annoys me but I always accepted that it was just part of using natural sunscreen.  Not only was I able to easily apply this but it didn’t leave that nasty heavy feeling that most lotions and sunscreens do.  That is one of my pet peeves and I rarely use any sort of lotion because of it! There was also no scent to it and I didn’t have to use too much of it for complete coverage- which means this 6oz bottle will last you longer than some other brands :)

Overall, I have nothing negative to say about this sunscreen at all! Not only does it meet all my strict mommy requirements but it is also easy to apply (which is SO important with squirmy children) and extremely effective! I am so grateful that Block Island Organics contacted me to try out their sunscreen because now I have a new favorite brand that I feel good about investing in!

I know that Fall is fast approaching but Summer isn’t over yet and with Labor Day on the horizon and other late Summer activities left to do, that will probably mean some fun in the sun.  Thankfully, Block Island Organics was nice enough to agree to giveaway a bottle of Baby Block SPF 30 to one of my lucky readers (a $24.99 dollar value) so they can play smart & safe for the remaining summer days!
