I have teamed up with my friends at Beauty by Earth for an awesome Suncare Giveaway! 🌞  If you read my post on staying safe in the sun, you may have noticed I recommended their sunscreen as an alternative to conventional brands and for good reason! Their products are completely natural, cruelty-free, reef-safe, non-toxic, and, most importantly, effective! I used them on my last trip to Hawaii and quickly fell in love. I have no doubt whoever wins will love them too!

If you have been following my blog, you know I love Beauty by Earth. They are passionate about creating products that are not only safe for you and your family but also effective. They leave out all of the chemicals and harmful ingredients found in conventional products and use only the best natural, non-GMO, and organic ingredients! On top of that, all of their products are proudly made in the USA and cruelty-free. 🌿

Beauty by Earth’s Sunscreen

While looking for a green sunscreen option, I came across rave reviews for Beauty by Earth’s Sunscreen. Already a fan of their products, I immediately ordered their Sunscreen Bundle and packed it for my vacation. Here’s why I fell in love with it…

Broad Spectrum Protection

As covered in my sun safety post, one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing sunscreen is whether or not it provides broad-spectrum coverage. Both the Beauty by Earth SPF 25 Sunscreen and SPF 20 Facial Sunscreen are labeled broad-spectrum!

Reef Safe & Biodegradable Formula

Since they do not use synthetic ingredients like oxybenzone, their sunscreens are deemed reef-safe! Feel free to wear these products in the ocean without stress or guilt. 🐠

Cruelty-free Formulation

As with all of their products, Beauty by Earth’s sunscreen is certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny Program. 🐰

Immediate Protection

Although it is recommended you apply your sunscreen 15 minutes before sun exposure, one of the benefits of Beauty by Earth’s sunscreens being formulated with Zinc Oxide is that they work immediately. While chemical sunscreens need time to be absorbed by the skin, physical sunscreens work like a shield to the sun’s rays.

Environmental Working Group Recommended

What I consider one of the best sources for product safety, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has included Beauty by Earth on its list of “Best Beach and Sport Sunscreens”. Both products scored a squeaky clean 1 on their scale! Read their reports here: SPF 20 Facial Sunscreen | SPF 25 Sunscreen

SPF 25 Sunscreen (Body) | Beauty by Earth

Beauty by Earth Sunscreen SPF 25 | smelltheroses.com

Ingredients

Active Ingredient: Zinc Oxide (Non-nano)

Inactive Ingredients: Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Vegetable Glycerin, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Organic Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Organic Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Organic Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Fruit Extract, Organic Camellia Oleifera (Japanese Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Magnesium Sulfate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Pulp Extract, Vanilla Tahitensis (Vanilla) Fruit Extract

Application

This sunscreen is the best Zinc Oxide-based sunscreen I have found so far. The formula is definitely going to seem thick to someone who is used to conventional sunscreens but that is normal for Zinc Oxide-based sunscreens (I’ll take a thicker formula that is clean over a thinner chemical filled formula any day). Still, I do find the sunscreen fairly easy to rub in. It can leave a very subtle white tint on the body but I found this only happens when my legs are very dry. When I was on vacation, there was no whiteness if I had moisturized that morning. However, I actually liked when it was slightly visible because it showed me if I missed a spot or needed to reapply!

How to Use: Apply a liberal amount to all exposed areas of the body. Rub in until sunscreen is no longer or barely visible.  Reapply every 2 hours or after prolonged time in the water.

Why I Love It!

  1. Rubs in easily compared to other Zinc Oxide sunscreens.
  2. Doesn’t leave you looking like a ghost. 👻
  3. Effective immediately!
  4. Water resistant up to 40 minutes.
  5. Provides excellent sun protection!
  6. Mostly organic ingredients.
  7. Gentle enough for kids!
  8. Reef safe 🐠  & cruelty-free 🐰

Facial Sunscreen | smelltheroses.com

Ingredients

Active Ingredient: Zinc Oxide (Non-nano)

Inactive Ingredients: Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Vegetable Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Magnesium Sulfate, Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C), Xanthan Gum, Organic Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil, Organic Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Organic Ginkgo Biloba Extract, Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Cupressus Sempervirens (Cypress) Leaf Essential Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Essential Oil

Application

This facial sunscreen is light enough for everyday wear but strong enough for a full day at the beach.

Beach Day: I use one pump (about a pea size amount) and spread it all over my face until completely rubbed in. If I feel I need to add more, I do so only after the initial application has been rubbed in. Using this method prevented my face from turning “white” like we are all afraid of! Reapply every 2 hours while in direct sunlight.

Everyday Wear: Apply one pump to the entire face until completely rubbed in. Wait 5-10 minutes for sunscreen to dry. Apply makeup as usual and set with a finishing powder to prevent shine (I recommend the “Un” Powder by RMS). *If exposed, apply to neck and chest too!

Why I Love It!

  1. Great for sensitive skin!
  2. Rubs in easily & feels lightweight.
  3. Doesn’t make my skin feel greasy.
  4. Leaves no white tint – perfect for under makeup.
  5. Effective immediately!
  6. Water resistant up to 40 minutes.
  7. Mostly organic ingredients.
  8. Pump dispenser prevents waste.
  9. Gentle enough for kids!
  10. Reef safe 🐠  & cruelty-free 🐰

Beauty by Earth Aloe Vera Gel | smelltheroses.com

Ingredients

Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C), Xanthan Gum, Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium Citrate

Application

For Burns or Sunburn: Apply a thin layer over burned area. The burn will immediately feel cooled and soothed (some people like to put the aloe vera in the fridge for additional relief). The aloe vera will keep the skin moisturized and help speed the healing process. Reapply 2-3 times a day until the burn has healed.

For Minor Cuts: Apply a thin layer 2-3 times a day. The gel will act as a natural disinfectant!

As a Moisturizer: Apply a thin layer to the area you would like to moisturize. The gel is nongreasy so it can be applied before makeup. It is also a great aftershave product – softens skin and will heal tiny cuts!

As a Makeup Remover: Apply a small amount of gel to a cotton ball to gently remove makeup around your eyes and face.

For Hair: Treat dandruff and dry scalp by applying the gel to roots/scalp at nighttime. Wash hair normally in the AM. Some people also use the gel as a hair styling product!

Other Uses: diaper rash, acne treatment, eczema, bruises, poison ivy/oak, soothe bug bites, etc..

Why I Love It!

  1. Can be used for so much more than sunburn!
  2. Non-sticky, fast-drying formula.
  3. Love using on my legs/armpits after shaving.
  4. My fiance can use it as an aftershave too!

    This is a very interesting write up on natural sunscreen. Natural products that don’t introduce toxins into the body are the way to go. What good does repelling the sun do if the product poisons your system. Love the idea that these do not make you choose between damage from the sun and not going outside! With sensitive skin it is a consideration, and I love that these are actually beneficial to your skin! Also appreciate that the containers when ending up in a landfill won’t kill animals that live there. Now perhaps you can make a bug repellent that actually works and doesn’t poison you at the same time!

      Hi Kathryn! The sunscreen did not cause me to breakout and Beauty by Earth claims it is safe for troublesome skin so it shouldn’t! I found it very lightweight and not greasy at all. However, everyone’s skin is different so I can’t guarantee you will have the same experience. Hope this helps!
