Beyond Coastal Active Daily Sunscreen SPF 30
Beyond Coastal Sun Care was founded by Shawn Biega, a sports enthusiast who spent a lot of time outdoors (often wearing no sun protection). According to the Beyond Coastal website, Shawn “witnessed firsthand the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation when a few friends developed skin cancer in their early 30s.” My husband is an avid cyclist, and sometimes weeks will pass before he even uses a car to commute to work. Great for the environment, yes… but his rigorous riding schedule could certainly damage his skin and heighten his risk for skin cancer. As a result I am constantly on his case about sunscreen application. I also occasionally like to use him as a guinea pig for product reviews. You can see where I’m going with this, right? After using it for a day or two, I asked him what he thought. His words to me were: “It didn’t smell bad. It went on fine.” I laughed. He then added. “What more do you want? It’s a $@x%x! sunblock.” Obviously, I would have to sample this myself to write a review. I was impressed. This SPF 30, broad-spectrum sunscreen is designed to stay on through even the most active of athletic challenges. Unlike some sunscreens, this product never ran into my eyes or irritated my sensitive skin. Beyond Coastal Active Daily Sunscreen absorbed quickly, and I was able to apply my makeup over it with no problem. My husband was perhaps unable to articulate how much he likes this product, but it quickly became the household favorite, with every member of the family using it (until it was gone)! Beyond Coastal products are all dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, paraben-free and oil-free. Their products are manufactured to meet USA- FDA, Australian, European EEC, Japanese AND South African standards. A 4 oz. bottle sells for $15.00 on the Beyond Coastal website (shipping is free with a purchase of $25 or more- via Pay Pal), or you can check for a retailer near you.
A full-spectrum SPF 30 that's good for the entire family!
I can't believe how long it has taken me to find a suncreen that was natural but I did. And I am only 2 years behind the original poster (!). These products are fantastic and what I love the most is that there isn't countless products to confuse you. Select few that are crucial and clearly well-researched products. The best part -- at a reasonable price (you can find far more expensive sun care products with practically zero natural ingredients). This is a must-buy for anyone. Maybe they'll create an SPF100 product soon because that'd be great for my skin!
