Live Clean – Sun Care! ~Giveaway!

We’ve had some hot days here in Saskatchewan lately! I’ve even been silly enough to get a fairly bad burn once! Generally, I’m pretty careful because I know I tend to burn rather than tan, but we were out working in the yard and I forgot about sunscreen until it was too late! Oops! My kids, on the other hand, seem to have gotten their Daddy’s skin tones and they are getting mighty brown! I do make sure they have sunscreen on during the hottest parts of the day, but I also subscribe to the theory that they need at least 30 minutes of sun to give them plenty of Vitamin D!

I was pretty excited when a package showed up in my mailbox from Live Clean and it contained sun products! I had never tried their sunscreen before so it was great timing, given the weather we’ve been having! They have four sun products at the moment – Baby, Sport, and Face mineral sunscreen and then an After Sun Aloe Vera Gel. I was sent their two brand new products – the Face and the After Sun gel. Remember that burn I said I got? Yup, I used quite a bit of the Aloe Vera gel on it and it’s very soothing! I’m going to try to not need that gel again this year! Haha!  I love how Live Clean has changed their formula slightly with each different product – both the Face and Baby are non-nano – as in there are no particles small enough to enter the bloodstream.  They are also formulated for sensitive skin.

Now, I have to remind you about the basis of Live Clean’s products. I’ve never included this quote from their webpage before, so I’m going to include it today:

“Our goal was simple, though challenging: To create a collection of beauty and personal care products that was eco-friendly natural and plant derived without sacrificing product performance, and do it at an affordable price. That was the challenge we set for ourselves and we were passionate about it as we developed formulas that would deliver the kind of results and pleasurable product experience – foaming, cleansing, textures and performance – that had, until then, been the result of ingredients that we had come to learn are harmful to the earth and most likely, ourselves.”

It’s important to remember this little detail – they are purposefully avoiding the questionable and known-to-be-harmful ingredients. Therefore, the consistency of items like sunscreen is going to be a bit different. I have yet to try a *good* sunscreen that is as easy to spread as the *not-so-good* sunscreens! However, we always need to keep in mind that sometimes we have to sacrifice a bit of convenience in return for a product that’s safe. For example, I have never and will never buy a spray on sunscreen – they just seem to sketchy for me – there are inhalation hazards and are almost guaranteed to have ingredients that I don’t want to put on myself, nor my children. So yes, this sunscreen isn’t as smooth and easy to put on as other sunscreens. However, I’m okay with that when I know that I don’t have to worry about the ingredients!

My only suggestion for Live Clean is that they might have to start making larger bottles!  The sunscreen ones are 113 mL (and MSRP of $16.99), and once you fall in love with them, they might not last your whole camping trip or lake swimming lesson session or garden weeding session!

Want to try some Live Clean sunscreen? Head to your local Shopper’s Drug Mart or Walmart to pick some up! Or head to Well.ca, my favourite online store and order from them! I’m confident you’ll enjoy the Live Clean line!  Head over to Facebook or Instagram to keep up with the latest at Live Clean!
