CLOSED:Soleo Organics Sunscreen Review and Giveaway! (3 WINNERS!)

So I'm pasty. Not sure if you knew that before, but alas, it is true.

I once got sun posioning from laying in a tanning bed for 10 minutes. And this was a week before my junior prom. But, that's a whole other story. :)

Anyways, my skin is super sensitive, and I am beginning to think that Tater's is going to be too. I was hoping he would get his pigmentation from his daddy, but negative on that one.

So, we buy a lot of sunscreen around here. We are constantly reapplying, probably like every 30 minutes or so. 'Cause we hate burns lol!

So, I was incredibly anxious to try Soleo Organics all natural Sunscreen. Soleo scored #1 safest sunscreen on the Enviromental Working Groups website (www.ewg.org if you're interested).

The first thing I noticed was that it was almost completely scent-free. I thought I would miss that "beachy sunscreen" smell, but I actually liked the neutral scent.

It's a very creamy lotion-type sunscreen, and It really mosturized my skin. I actually read that many women wear Soleo Sunscreen under their makeup as their moisturizer. I am looking forward to trying that soon, because I do not wear a daily sunscreen like we are supposed to. :(


Another thing that I really liked about Soleo was that it protects for up to 3 hours, regardless of whether you are in or out of the water. We didn't go that long without reapplying, just because I am paranoid, but we went about 2 hours, and no burns in sight! Tater could also jump in the pool a million times and not cry about the sunscreen burning his eyes as usual. That was a big plus for the boy and the mommy :)

Soleo is safe for adults and children of all ages, including infants. I was a bit hesitant to try it on the Bean, since he is still so new, but I am looking forward to using it in a few months when he's just a little bigger.

I am very impressed with Soleo sunscreen, and I am pretty sure it will be our go-to brand from now on. I love being able to use products on my babies that I know are natural and safe.

A few more interesting facts about Soleo Sunscreen:
  • Soleo contains no synthetic preservatives
  • Soleo is paraben & gluten free
  • Soleo is not tested on animals
  • The only active ingredient in Soleo Sunscreen is Zinc Oxide
  • Soleo contains all organically sourced ingredients, such as grape seed oil, sunflower seed oil, macadamia seed oil and green tea extracts.
Thank you Soleo for letting our family try such a great product!!!

  7. My current supposedly natural sunblock has yucky preservatives in it, and it's an improvement over the last one, which had suspected carcinogens. Would love to have a totally safe option!

  10. Oh gosh, I was just reading an article about hazardous chemical sin sunscreen and checked my bottles. Yup, each one contains yuckiness. Grr. So I pretty much am taking other measures to keep my family out of the sun. And a little Vitamin D is good for you in small quantities anyway, right? I am really trying to spread the word that using natural and organic products doesn't make you a crazy hippie too! LOL. I love hippies and was raised by two semi-hippies anyway so nothing, but luv there! Big high five to the EWG. They are amazing people over there.
