Protect Your Skin While Living The Outdoor Life

Play Smart, Play Safe

Block Island Organics

If you love to spend time outdoors, you know it’s important to protect your skin. Yet many of the sun & skin care products contain toxic chemicals that can do more harm than good. When you put it in perspective; it does not make sense to protect your skin from UV cancer causing rays, when the skin protectant can contain cancer causing chemicals.

Block Island Love

Block Island Organics created a skin care product line that contains non-toxic chemicals and SPF. The goal is to safely protect your skin while enjoying the outdoor life. All of Block Island Organics products contains ingredients that naturally occur in nature, which means they are mineral based.

Mineral based ingredients work the same if not better than chemical skin care products. A great example is the mineral Titanium Dioxide, which sits on top of your skin and reflects UV rays. So why buy chemical skin care when mineral based can do the same without the toxicity?

Why is SPF important for skin care?

Block Island Organics not only is mineral based, all their products contain SPF. SPF helps protect our skin from 2 out of 3 types of UV rays that can damage our skin (the 3rd type of UV ray doesn’t even reach the earth, so no need to worry about that one). SPF not only helps protect us from life threatening skin cancer, but also premature aging and eye damage. Most skin protectants on the market will only protect you from ONE of these damaging rays.

Block Island Organics is BROAD SPECTRUM, so that means it protects you from both types of damaging UV rays. The FDA recommends a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 40-50 SPF. Anything above that really doesnt work and is for marketing purposes only.

Always Wash Your Face

The Block Island Purifying Cleanser has a really nice consistency, its not thick or overly soapy. It has no smell or dyes, so it’s great for anyone who has sensitivities to either. Since there are no harsh chemicals, this is ideal for someone who has sensitive skin. My husband was able to use this and he had no reactions at all with his sensitive skin.

No Sulfates, SLS, or SLES.
Contains Vitamins C & E

When getting ready to lather up the Purifying Facial Cleanser, you only need ONE pump to clean your face. It’s not overly foamy like many cleansers. It has a nice thick foam build up that really cleanses your face. The Purifying Cleanser rinses off easily leaving your skin feeling clean, soft and hydrated.

Night Time Skin Care

Block Island Organics Revitalizing Night Cream is very different than any night cream I have used. It does not feel heavy or oily & it has a lotion like consistency that absorbs right into the skin. This is ideal for a night time cream that allows you not to worry about ruining your pillows or sheets while sleeping.

No gluten, sulfates, dyes, PABA, parabens, silicone or fragrance. Cruelty Free and Vegan

Personally I have tired night creams that felt like spackle, and I was afraid to even move while sleeping. No one should have to actually lose sleep over skin care. I applied the revitalizing night cream all over my face and neck & didn’t need to use much. It was lightweight with no headache causing fragrance. The revitalizing night cream absorbed immediately into my skin and did not leave a residue behind. I think my favorite part, was my husband’s reaction the next morning. He said my skin felt ‘so soft’ & that can make any girl blush!

Face Moisturizer

Natural Face Moisturizer retails $27.99 USD

Block Island Suncare Natural Face Moisturizer is a bit different than what I am used to. I love that there is no fragrance and it does not leave a white cast. It is very thick, so no need to use a lot; a little definitely goes a long way.

*Awarded Best Moisturizer with SPF from EWG.
* Biodegradable, Reef Safe, Eco-Friendly, Recyclable.
*Protects skin from sun, prevents wrinkles and signs premature aging
.

Initially when you put the Natural Face Moisturizer on your face, it does feel a bit heavy, so I would recommend to wait a while before you put on any makeup. Once it is completely absorbed into your skin, your skin feels moisturized and soft all day long until the next day.

Ultimate Skin Protection

Block Island Suncare Natural Mineral Sunscreen is a must have in my opinion. It’s a lightweight sunscreen that absorbs into your skin quicker than other sunscreen brands. Many of the sunscreens that I have used in the past were very thick and left a white cast on your skin. The Natural Mineral Sunscreen rubs down nice and sheer which is ideal if attending any outdoor event.

Contains Zinc.
Broad Spectrum SPF 30 UVA UVB Protection
.

Since its a lightweight sunscreen, you do not feel a ‘heaviness‘ or ‘greasiness‘ all over your skin. It has no fragrance which is great for anyone who has a sensitivity to smells. Block Island Mineral Sunscreen is a great option for the entire family.

Block Island Organics skin & sun care products is an ideal addition to your skin care routine. No harsh chemicals, natural ingredients and contains SPF for skin protection. Why wouldn’t you want all that mineral goodness and protection soaked into your skin!
