Free Giveaway of Block Island Organics Sunscreen

Block Island Organics

Just in time for summertime sun, the nice folks at Block Island Organics have generously offered to give away two full-sized products to one lucky Happy Simple Living reader in the U.S.

If you’re a regular reader of Happy Simple Living, you know I rarely endorse products. Although an astonishing number of companies write and want to host sponsorships and giveaways, somehow loading you up with more stuff seems counterproductive to the purpose of simple living. But Block Island Organics got in touch right after I’d read about the hidden dangers of commercial sunscreens, and I was looking for an alternative.

Block Island Organics’ sunscreens are non-toxic and mineral based, not chemical based. The company’s products are non-comedogenic, vegan formulated, paraben free, phthalate free, nano particle free, artificial fragrance free, non-eye irritating, not tested on animals, made in the USA and highly rated by the Environmental Working Group. Whew, that’s quite a list of good things! Their offerings include a Baby SPF 30, an SPF 15, SPF 30 and SPF 40 product, and a Sunburn Relief lotion.

I agreed to try a sample, with the understanding that I would only sponsor a giveaway if I personally liked the product. They sent me the Baby Block SPF 30, which is a gentle, zinc-only formula that adults can use, too. The product is a broad spectrum sunscreen, meaning it protects against both UVA and UVB rays.

I tested it on mid-day walks in hot sun, and at all times of the day working in the garden. This sunscreen really did the trick and made my skin feel nice, too. The product is creamy and it absorbs easily. I’ve been using it on my face and hands every day, and because it’s non-comedogenic it doesn’t cause breakouts.

They also sent me a bottle of Sunburn Relief, which is a light gel made with soothing ingredients like aloe, cucumber and glycerin. Since I’ve been fortunate not to have any sunburns, I tried it after a shower on my garden-ravaged hands and they instantly felt smooth and soft.

Would you like to try these products, too? If you win the giveaway, you’ll receive full-sized bottles of the Baby 30 zinc-based sunscreen and Sunburn Relief.

To enter, simply answer this question:

What simple pleasure have you been enjoying this summer?

Have you taken a picnic? Watched a sunset? Wiggled your toes in the sand? Whatever youโ€™re doing this June, just dash off a quick response in the comments below and youโ€™ll be automatically entered. The giveaway is open for readers living in the United States, now through Wednesday, June 25, at midnight MST.

Thanks so much to Block Island Organics for sponsoring this giveaway!

Hugs,

    Seriously, I’ve become a HUGE fan of zinc based sunscreens, and will probably buy some of this stuff when I don’t win (because I never win this sort of thing!)

  14. Thanks for introducing this great product! Summer fun so far has been napping on our trampoline – it’s like a hammock, but we can all pile on! It’s a great place to ready a book, especially when you pile on blankets and pillows for ultimate relaxation.

  16. I’m enjoying the warmer days with the kids. We’ve been to the water spray parks, which my son particularly enjoys, the summer story time programs at the local library, and we’re looking forward to the $1 summer movie program for the kids:D

  18. Our summer has been different than before. My hubby quit his job at one school and accepted another across the country. While putting the house on the market and showing it is not easy, I’ve had the blessing of having Hubby home all summer! This hasn’t happened in a long time and the kids are eating it up!

  19. Family time with a bunch of activities and lots of smiles and fun. A wedding that was understated and beautiful. Next some kayaking, camping, a day in the city for a daughter/Mommy date and my hands in the garden
