Block Island Organics Sunscreen and Sun Burn Relief Plus Discount Code

I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.

     Living in Arizona we need to have sunscreen all year round.  And with having such light skin myself as well as my boys it is even more important.  John has already gotten skin cancer from being in the sun too much with out protection.  I am always up for trying different sunscreens.  When I first heard about Block Island Organics I heard some really good things.  Then I was contacted by them asking if I'd like to do a review.  Of course since I was already hearing good things I said yes.




     I received a bottle of the Block Island Organics SPF 15 and a bottle of the Block Island Organics sun burn relief.  The people over at Block Island Organics have a motto that says, "Play Smart. Play Safe. Non-Toxic Suncare."  They believe that you should actively enjoy the outdoors safely.  They strive to make safe and effective suncare products.  They also want to educate the public on suncare issues.


     Block Island Organics are non-toxic mineral based (zinc and titanium), not chemical based.  The line includes SPF 15, SPF 30, SPF 40 and Baby SPF 30 (only contains zinc).  They are non-comedogenic, vegan formulated, paraben free, phthalate free, nano particle free, artificial fragrance free, and non-eye irritating.  It is also not tested on animals and made in the USA.  It provides UVA and UVB protection.  And it is also water resistant.  When I tried this I noticed that it isn't really greasy like many other sunblocks I have tried.  It really doesn't have a strong smell.


     Block Island Organics Sunburn Relief is made with lidocaine, aloe, cucumber, and vitamin E.  Lidocaine is one of the safest proven sunburn relief ingredients available.  It is a gel formula that  nourishes and repairs skin that has been burned by the sun.  The sunburn relief will not clog pores, is a vegan formula, paraben free, and phthalate free also.  The sunburn relief also doesn't have much of a smell.  It goes on clear and is not real sticky like other formulas I have tried.  So far I have not had a burn to actually have a need for this.  Hopefully no one in my family does get one, but I'm happy to know that I have it just in case.

     I would love to try the Baby Sunblock since Evan is my most fair skinned one and I have to constantly put sunblock on him.  Currently Block Island is having a great sale with 30% off everything.  And even better all my fans get and additional discount with the code: arizonama This code is good until 10/17.
