~I received samples from Elemental Herbs for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
As summer approaches I am reminded how important it is to protect my family’s skin from everything under the sun including hazardous chemicals and with Elemental Herbs’ “All Good” rebranded line of natural sunscreens, featuring non-nano zinc oxide, antioxidant rich herbs and natural moisturizers I can do just that. Their sunscreens continue to use the safest sunscreen protection ingredient – non-nano zinc oxide – in the “SPF 33 Sunscreen Sport, SPF 33 Sunscreen Kids and SPF 30 Sunstick, offering broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Infused with antioxidant-rich herbs and moisturizing organic jojoba, coconut and olive oils, the sunscreens utilize nature’s bounty to protect and pamper skin.
The All Good Sunscreen Sport and Sunscreen Kids are available in three-ounce tubes. These non-greasy formulas are safe for kids, adults and the planet. Their sunscreen with the new packaging will not look like the one I received above but it will have the same formula with the exception of the Sunscreen Kids 33 where calendula and chamomile are being added. I have used this stuff on both myself and my kids in the intense Florida sun and we all came out with no sun burns and instead only left with soft skin. It offers the perfect consistency of not too thick or not too watery and rubs in great. My kids took the mandatory sunscreen rub down with no complaining and only a few grunts of “hurry up mom.”
The All Good Sunstick provides a convenient, mess-free application for the face, nose, ears and basically anywhere you want to rub it on. Available in unscented and coconut, the 0.6-ounce stick has been tested on and approved by surfers, hikers, climbers and more. The coconut scent is just amazing and every time I sniff it I am reminded of a sandy days on the beach. I keep this in my diaper bag for quick touch ups on our face if we are out for a long period of time and we need to re-apply. Its quick and easy to use which means even my kids don’t mind when I rub this all over them.
The All Good Lips Tinted SPF 18 comes in six mineral shades and keeps lips moisturized while also protecting them from the sun. The really nice part about these as they that they give the lips a little bit of earthy color to them. After trying these out I am a convert and won’t use any other lip gloss anymore!
