Protect your Skin from the Sun: Smart Girls Who Surf

Protect your skin early by wearing SPF everyday!

I have sensitive skin that is allergic to chemical ingredients for SPF protection, so I have to use products that only contain Titanium Dioxide and Iron Oxide (ingredients made for sensitive skin.)

In preparation for the upcoming Earth Month in April, I want to share with you an organic sunscreen face stick that I tried from Smart Girls Who Surf.

Their Organic SPF 32 Sunscreen Face Stick has the following organic ingredients:

Active ingredients : Titanium Dioxide 8%, Zinc Oxide 2.5%
Inactive Ingredients: Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Castor oil, Organic Coco Butter, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Aloe Oil, Vitamin E, Green Tea Extract, Rosemary Extract, Organic Calendula.

Tips & Tricks to use...
With all the oils and moisturizing ingredients, it did not surprise me that when applied, the formula was creamier than expected since it came from a stick. The formula however does leave a bit of a white residue but if you spread it on your face, it will sort of absorb into your skin but still a slightly white cast is left on your face. It helps to let you know that you've applied the sunscreen but if you don't like the tint, you can definitely apply a bronzing powder for cover up.

For $13, this product is a great value for the product that you get. It's also convenient for your purse and TSA-approved since it's not a liquid! :) Great for the beach and on your spring break (see my Spring break must-haves here.)

(Disclaimer: I received this product from this company's PR agency to test, try and share my thoughts with my readers.)
