Human Nature: SAFEBLOCK 100% Natural Sunscreen [Purchased Review]

Last month, I wrote about avoiding synthetic sunscreens (read post here) and provided 2 safer alternatives to chemical sunscreens.

Personally, I use mineral sunscreen for face and I am using up the one I got from Jamacia for body. 



On one of my random online shopping rave,
I chanced upon and bought one of Human Nature's latest product:



"Save our skins, save our seas!"

Be a good seatizen and celebrate the exuberance of summer with SAFEBLOCK, a100% natural, broad-spectrum, reef-friendly family sunscreen.

Don't see double − SPF30 doesn't mean twice the protection of SPF15.SAFEBLOCK's SPF15 already blocks 93% of UVB rays, while SPF30 actually only blocks 4% more!

To Use:
  • Apply liberally to exposed skin.
  • Dermatologists recommend waiting 20 minutes after applying sunscreen before exposure to sun.
  • Clinical tests show that SPF15 may drop to SPF13 after 80 minutes of swimming. Reapply after swimming, sweating, toweling or as needed.
  • Don not stay too long under the sun even while using a sunscreen.



VERDICT

Ingredients: 
Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, zinc oxide, hydrogenated castor oil, Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride (coconut-derived), dicaprylyl ether (vegetable-derived), beeswax, Glycine soja (soybean) oil, oryzanol (rice-derived), fragrance (all-natural), glyceryl caprylate (coconut, palm and glycerin-derived), tocopherol, anisic acid (anise seed-derived)

Benefits:

  • Cares for our coral reefs with only all-good, sea-safe natural ingredients


Smell: Somehow, to my nose~ the scent smells like Grape Hi-chew.

Cost: From $14.90

Product Rating: 8/10

It works well as a sunscreen for swimming, I used it while I was snorkeling in Cebu and I didnt even end up with a burn or tan! I love that it contains natural ingredients that not only makes it safe for us but also for the reefs and corals! So~ Plus points!!!

As for the texture, I knew it would be oily considering the ingredients used in this product. A combination of both mineral and natural oils are used to combat against the harmful rays, I can see why this product is water resistant and effective in protecting my skin against the burn~ A thing to note is that it is important to shake and stir the contents in the tube before application if not, this is going to happen is this:


Hahaha! Yup~ Besides that, I would also recommend layering the sunscreen bit by bit rather than applying a thick layer in one shot. It makes application easier and smoother! 

(This is how white it will be when you apply a thick layer and it will take awhile to blend it out)


This product leaves a thin slight whitish layer on the skin (sunscreen is applied on the whole face, thickly over nose & cheek) without feeling oily after application. And as with all sunscreen and makeup, make sure to remove them thoroughly and properly by the end of the day!
