Love this sunscreen stick! It’s white but goes on pretty sheer and it’s super easy to rub in and doesn’t make your kids look like ghosts. Because when you’re already as pasty white as us that can be a reality haha. Beautycounter is killin it in the sunscreen department! #safersunscreen#saferbeauty#beautycounter
Friends don’t let friends allow for skin protection to be harmful. @younglivingeo’s naturally derived plant and mineral based ingredients protect your skin and are SAFE for you and the environment. It shields against UVB and UVA rays and is even recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. They now have SPF 50 as an additional option as well!
Be outside in CONFIDENCE that what you’re wearing will protect you longer term than the hours you’re spending in the sun!
Another tick off the bucket list - the coolest splash pad we’ve found so far!! Easy to spot my two looney kids, my goal is to have to use as little sunscreen as possible 😂😂😂Luckily I had my new Countersun spray in my bag for a quick spray on the legs and face! Did you know the best way to stay safe this Summer is to cover up, if you choose bright colors it will help you spot your kids in a crowd as well!!!! I don’t even buy short sleeve rash guard tops anymore as I can’t be bothered sunscreening arms!
Quick tip: if you don’t have your face stick, spray the spray in your hand and apply to little faces to avoid spraying in the eyes 👍🏻 @beautycounter @ronaldoxi #safersunscreen#sunsafetips#protectthosebabies
I have used crappy toxic sunscreens because I didn’t know what else to do ... I’ve tried to make my own with powdered zinc oxide 👎🏼 ... I’ve used ‘natural’ brands that still had questionable ingredients and were impossible to actually rub in.
And now ... praise the Lord, there’s this workhorse that’s the best of all worlds. Rubs in and protects like standard commercial sunscreen but with none of the junk that freaks me out. ☠️
To my beautiful beautycounter fam that have not yet joined band of beauty consider this offer especially because it is SUMMER!!! Safer sunscreen is only a click away. I use this almost DAILY on myself and my boys, it is a MUST for the pool, beach, and any sunny day outing.
Band of beauty... free shipping, product credit, and a free gift. Get on it! Sunscreen is the free gift ONLY until the end of this month. It is a MUST HAVE 😘😘😘 Peace and love to everyone. Have a blessed weekend. #safersunscreen#beautycounter#saferskincare#saferproducts#youdeservethebest
It's officially summer! Yes, I know if your in Texas it's felt like summer for quite sometime now..... if you haven't already be sure to get your sunscreen ordered for sunshine & pool time! #summer#safersunscreen
There are very few things I would say that I absolutely need when I go to the beach.
1) Clean Sunscreen
2) Oversized Towel
4) Tote Bag
That’s about it. My kids would say they need buckets, shovels, toys, goggles & mermaid tails. 😆 What do you like to bring to the beach?
It’s officially SUMMER!

Happy first day of summer! ☀️ We are usually seeking water to beat the heat, and Beautycounter’s sunscreens are the perfect match for keeping us sun safe. I can personally attest to the difference I feel wearing these sunscreens under the scorching sun versus other sunscreen products. Stephen is a spray and go type of sunscreen user and has sprayed my back down with other brands, while I used the Beautycounter sunscreen lotion on the rest of my body. Sitting by the pool watching Thomas play for an hour, my back felt very hot, whereas the rest of my skin felt normal to touch. The difference in this feeling on my skin was incredible. Swipe through to learn some of the benefits of Beautycounter’s new safer mineral sunscreens. If you’re ready to give them a try and #switchtosafer then head to the link in my bio. I’m happy to answer any and all questions! Welcome summer with safer sunscreen! 👙🏊♀️🚤🏖 #Beautycounter#betterbeauty#whyBeautycounter#safersunscreen
☀️Happy FIRST Day of Summer☀️

So I can sit back and relax as my kiddos enjoy these Summer nights☀️☀️☀️

Sending a little sunshine on a cloudy day. It’s the official first day of summer, which hopefully means you’re doing something fun to savor the extra daylight! It’s raining here, but that’s not stopping me from discussing one of my favorite summertime wellness topics on the blog - sunscreen!
I’m a firm believer that taking action to educate and protect yourself is the most empowering form of self-care. And that extends to skincare and sun safety! As we welcome summer, it’s also an awesome opportunity to say hello to safer sunscreen. Because if you do your research, you’ll come to a quick conclusion: Not all sunscreens are created equal.
And that can get confusing! One of the first things to help shed some light on sunscreen is identifying the category – physical sunscreens versus chemical sunscreens. More about these today on the blog (link in bio), and for the rest of June I'll be sharing info, recommendations, and special deals so you can try some of my favorite products yourself.
As always, don’t hesitate to comment or DM me with questions – I know safer skincare options can get overwhelming, and I’m here to help however I can. We all deserve better. ☀️
It’s officially summer! That means it’s time to sit in the backyard and soak up the rays. But before you go outside remember to wear sunscreen! @beautycounter has a wonderful mineral based sunscreen that does the job and it’s safe for our oceans.

But first SKIN CARE now that summer is officially here☀️
_________________ ✨Did you know that 2 common ingredients in many sunscreens (octinoxate and oxybenzone) are directly contributing to the collapse of the coral reefs around the world? In fact, Hawaii is the first state that has recently banned sunscreens that carry these ingredients!!.
_____________________ ✨Beautycounter will never include those ingredients in their sunscreens!
__________________________ ☀️Check your sunscreen. If those ingredients exist in your bottle-toss them immediately! Better yet, give Beautycounter a try! With multiple sizes, there’s something for everyone!! Our sunscreen lotion now comes in a convenient travel size!!.

Oh my gosh! I totally believed all of these myths when I was a teenager and quite possibly through college. 😉 If only I knew then what I know now. I’d probably have less brown spots and wrinkles. 🤦🏻♀️ Now I apply sunscreen everyday even in those cold winter months and wear hats outdoors. #safersunscreen#smellsamazing#kidslovethespray
Happy 1st Day of Summer!!!! Make sure you stock up on safe sunscreen and wear a hat when you are outside! I’ve been using our Beautycounter new formula for weeks now in this gorgeous weather and no burns! Even on my very pale red-headed son 😉☀️👙#safersunscreen#wearahat#beautycounter#safebeauty

So what’s the deal with heavy metals in lipsticks and what is the risk involved? It is estimated that an average lipstick user ingests about 24 milligrams of lip makeup per day, while a heavy user who reapplies several times a day ingests up to 87 milligrams ingested per day. A study determined that an average use of lipsticks and lip glosses would result in excessive exposure to chromium, a carcinogen linked to stomach tumors. Higher use could result in overexposure to aluminum, cadmium and manganese as well.
So why is this important? High levels of manganese has been linked to toxicity in the nervous system. And children are especially susceptible to heavy metal accumulation and should not play with make up that has not been tested.
Pictured are lipsticks being sent with love for heavy metal testing. 💌 Beautycounter batch tests all of our lipsticks for heavy metals therefore making it safe for you to use and little ones who love to play dress up💋
Checkout my insta stories for some insights about #betterbeauty practices and questions to ask regarding contaminates in products and testing for heavy metals because #WeDeserveBetter .👊🏼💪🏼💄💋
Day dreaming 💭 about being on the island of Maui, running in the water right after my brother and @safebeautygoals got married 🌊 🌅 That was pure joy in this photo! Take me back!
Speaking of... did you know that it is illegal to sell #sunscreen that contain certain ingredients -oxybenzone and octinoxate- in #Hawaii ? One, they are known endocrine disruptors, bad for humans. Two, they contribute to the collapse of the coral reefs, bad for the environment!
BUT... sunscreens with these two ingredients are still on the shelves on the mainland. Trust me, I checked myself at our local Target and every brand on the shelf and many I used to trust had it 😣 .
Well aren’t we behind on the mainland?! Ugh. Good thing my kids and I are stocked and ready for the summer sun with safer mineral sunscreen. It smells lovely too and it feels nice 👍🏽 .
Wait....WHAT 😲, and that is just a couple of the toxic ingredients on the list of what to avoid. If you don't change anything else, YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR SUNSCREEN. Oh and a general rule is, the higher the SPF, the greater the number of chemicals.

So, I decided I would use up the rest of Jude's Babyganics sunscreen that I got in October (for our trip to FL) before I would buy more BC sunscreen. Because, after all, we are all on a budget and Babyganics is certainly better than most sunscreens you can purchase in store.
Well, Jude got a rash Sunday on his little legs after we got back from the pool. It's almost gone now, but I'm certain it was the sunscreen. The rash is almost gone now, but so is the Babyganics.
I get it, safe sunscreen isn't cheap, but there's a reason it's not giving my baby a rash. And well, I will pay whatever it takes to keep my baby, my family, and my friends safe.
I ordered another spray and tube of the lotion sunscreen today!
Safer sunscreen for EVERYONE!

Definitely got use out of my new sunscreen this weekend! ☀️ I didn’t know much about the dangers of sunscreen until this product launched, but now I know why it’s important to switch to safer not only for yourself, but the environment too! So, why is it safer?
For you! - Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide & antioxidant-rich California Poppy, this physical (aka mineral) formula shields UVA, UVB & Blue Light rays (yes, it protects from all that screen time!). 👩🏼💻 It uses a non-aerosol, air-powered system to deliver the convenience & even application of an aerosol without the potentially harmful propellant chemicals being sprayed into the atmosphere or onto your skin.
For the environment! - It’s reef-friendly! 🌊Which is a major topic right now in the news. We NEVER use octinoxate or oxybenzone, ingredients known to contribute to the collapse of coral reefs. And, as mentioned above, it’s an air-powdered formula, so it doesn’t release any harmful propellant chemicals into the atmosphere.
