Beyond Coastal sun care products review and giveaway



Now that summer is coming, we're looking to all kinds of outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, picnicking, barbecuing, going to outdoor concerts and camping.  But since we're lucky enough to live in California, we can have family fun in the sun almost all year round!  Here are some things we like to do outdoors all year:

Sail.  Alfie loves to sail. He first took it up when he lived in Australia, and when he moved here he bought a sailboat and raced it on weekends.  He likes to joke that he sold his boat to make way for his kids, but he still takes us out on the lake for a sail now and then.

Run. Running and walking are my favorite forms of exercise. It doesn't cost anything, it's great for muscles and bones, and the natural high I get when I run is better than any form of drugs or alcohol!  California is the ideal place to run outdoors because the weather is great almost all year. 

Play soccer.  Everyone in the family loves soccer, but while The Pea and I are content to sit on the sofa and scream at the tv, 3Po and Jammy love getting out and kicking a ball around!  They practice 3 times a week with their soccer club, compete in matches and tournaments during the weekend, and play in the park with their dad.

Since Alfie and The Pea are so fair, sun safety is extremely important, and applying lotion every day is a non-negotiable.  I'm always on the lookout for effective, safe and convenient suncare products, so when I was invited to review Beyond Coastal's line of natural, family-friendly products, I readily agreed.  These products rub onto the skin easily and smell great!  My favorite is the Active Facestick, because it lets my apply sunscreen on everyone's faces without getting my hands all greasy, and has a nice lemony scent.  It's especially nice to know that Beyond Coastal uses natural ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil and more to keep our skin hydrated and nourished -- the last thing I want is to be slathering chemicals on my kids every single day!

* 1 Active Facestick SPF 30
