REVIEW: Beyond Coastal Sun Care

If you follow my blog at all, then I am sure it is very apparent, WE LOVE THE OUTDOORS. Whether it is being at the beach (hubby surfing and me soaking up the sun), playing at the park with the puppy, running the roads, going geo caching, or just maxin' and relaxin' on our porch - we can't get enough! We are blessed to live in Southern California, where it seems as though it is summer every day, so thankfully we are able to take advantage of being outside for the majority of the year.

Although I LOVE the sun (I mean, who doesn't?!), it can be a dangerous thing! The threats of skin cancer are real and we need to take precautions. But don't worry - you don't need to take on the fire-y beast alone. There are companies that can help protect you and your lovely skin. And this is where Beyond Coastal Sun Care comes in.

I was sent an assortment of their products (as you can see from the picture below). I knew they would be PERFECT to take on our Barbados vacation with us! Not only would I be in need of amazing sunscreens, but they were also an ideal size for travel (I normally only travel with a carry-on, so having them under 3 ounces and FDA-friendly was great).

With Barbados being so close to the equator, I knew the strength of the sun would be much more intense than we were used to. Also, I figured we would be in and out of the water (and of course super sweaty in the hot and humid weather). Finding a sunscreen which is water resistant, offers both UVA and UVB protection, goes on clean (not greasy and gross), and is not full of tons of unnecessary chemicals is hard to do - but with Beyond Coastal Sun Care you get just that!


I have to say, I think my favorite product that I received was the Active Face Stick. I love having something so easy to grab and put on. It is easy to throw in your make-up bag so you can put on sun protection while you are getting ready or keep in the basket you throw your keys in by the door so you remember to put on sunscreen before heading out for the day. Both hubby and I used it throughout our trip and were extremely happy with it. And I can attest to what they say on their site is accurate: "With only 12 ingredients, our simple Face Stick is moisturizing, rubs in clear, and is water resistant. Our inactive ingredients aren't just empty filler. Beyond Coastal's Active sunscreens nourish, repair, and hydrate your skin with aloe vera, shea butter, and vitamin E."

Another HUGE positive that we LOVED was the Natural Sunscreen line. Not only did we love it because it was "100% natural which provides shelter from UVA rays and effectively blocks 97% of UVB rays" but also because it was REEF SAFE! It is crazy to think how many sunscreens and lotions on the market are actually HARMING the reefs. We are huge animal lovers (both of us are vegetarians and advocate for our environment any way that we can) and snorkeled daily while we were in Barbados. It made us feel better knowing that what we were wearing was not going to hurt the reef, the animals, or the ecosystem.

The Natural Sunscreen seemed to take a little extra time to rub in and soak into your skin, but with the benefits it offered (including nourishing, repairing, and hydrating the skin), it was well worth the additional few seconds. All of the products worked extremely well. We would put on the sunscreen in the morning before heading out for the day and make sure to reapply around lunch-time.

Normally, after being in the sun all day, I tend to feel a little "crispy", but I didn't get that sense at all while wearing these sunscreens. In fact, I didn't even feel the need to put on body lotion in the evenings because my skin felt extremely hydrated and cared for already. I would definitely recommend Beyond Coastal Sun Care to anyone looking for a high quality, clean and healthy sunscreen.

Melanotan Provides an Easy Solution

Melanotan provides an easy solution to tanning compared to the tanning beds and summer tanning sessions that you’re used too. Through the use of the injections that you can do, you’re able to add peptides into the skin cells of your body and change the pigments, allowing you to be tanner, faster and more efficiently without the chemicals or harmful effects that come from the sun’s UV ray lights that are sent into the skin cells through your body and can cause cancer to occur.

This would be a problem when the time comes to do the tanning you want to have done. Never have to feel that way again, because now you have a more efficient way of tanning, without the use of the other products or actual sun.
