Need an Everyday Sunscreen?

One of our favorite things to do is hit the back roads in the jeep.  Hence the name "Back Road Momma".  The land here offers more beauty than can be appreciated in a life time and the old dirt roads are just simple, quiet, and very peaceful.  It's our time to unwind, take in the fresh air, and just enjoy this amazing world we have been blessed with.

Kolton's getting big enough that we're able to take him now.   I purchased a bikini top for the jeep and we just putt around.  But while that may protect him from the wind his cute little toes seem to always be in the sun.   It's too hot for socks, and he won't keep his feet covered with a blanket either. I can't say I blame him though.

Of course, there's sunscreen for that right?  That's my first thought too!  On his first jeep ride I didn't think about it until after the fact so there we were pulled over on the side of the road putting sunscreen on his arms legs and feet.  (mainly just in case) 

I actually received this bottle of Beautycounter Mineral Sunscreen a couple weeks ago and had tossed it in my purse until we needed it.  Perfect timing I thought!

Of course first thing I noticed was how the lotion slightly shimmered in the suns reflection but I continued to rub it in and the shimmer was eliminated.  That got me thinking... Why.... Why does it shimmer?  Is it just because of the minerals?  Yea pretty much....  But that's a good thing!

The Beautycounter Mineral Sunscreen actually shields against the suns harmful rays protecting against UVA, UVB, and blue light while sitting on the surface of the skin rather than absorbing into the skin.  Beautycounter doesn't use any SPF filters because they are known to cause skin irritation. Instead the Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide sit on the surface of the skin and physically bounce/ reflect the suns rays away from the skin. This is great for people with sensitive skin like sweet Baby Kolton! And yes, of course it's water and sweat resistant and I noticed it doesn't wear off quickly either although the company recommends you reapply every 40 minutes if in direct contact with water.   That just makes since anyways.

 Formulated with non-nano zinc and antioxidant-rich California Poppy, I really like how it feels. Where I applied the sunscreen on myself my skin is soft and silky smooth.  It doesn't feel greasy and it was easy to rubbed in without leaving white residue.  I think the Beautycounter mineral sunscreen is great for everyday use because of how easy it's applied, the lack of residue and the simple fact that your skin's not consuming the product by soaking it up but just hosting it for a little while if you will.  This is a great everyday sunscreen!
