California Naturel All Natural Sunscreen and Lip Balm

sunscreen

The California Naturel Sunscreen is soft, luxurious and not oily, made with a plant and mineral based formula.  Glacial Oceanic Minerals and Zinc Oxide are key components used to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays.  The sunscreen is enriched with antioxidants from botanical sources including Shea Butter, Marigold Flower Extract and Pomegranate Extract.

I didn’t know this but flower extract increases skin hydration and protects it from environmental damage!

lip balm

The California Naturel Lip Balm protects from UVA and UVB rays also and has SPF 8 Suncreen Protection.  When I first tried this out, I noticed it made my lips white, which lasted all of 30 seconds,  then once it sank in my lips were left feeling moist and smooth!  It has a nice fruity scent and I love how soft my lips felt afterwards, the effect also lasted quite a few hours before I applied it again!

What do I think?

After trying out this gorgeous sunscreen for over a week, I can honestly say that no sunscreen has ever made my skin feel so moist!  The California Naturel Sunscreen is not oily whatsoever, it took me about 30 seconds to rub the sunscreen on my arms and blend it all in, my arms were left feeling moisturized and fresh!

I love sunscreen, and I love the fact that this sunscreen isn’t oily, it’s a lot less work and doesn’t make you feel greasy or sweaty like some other sunscreens do, I adore how moist it instantly makes my skin feel.  There also isn’t a really strong smell like some sunscreens, it has a really subtle herbal floral scent which is just the right amount!

Now you are supposed to re apply it around every 2 hours, but after having it on my skin for a few hours it still felt super moist, which makes me think it has a long lasting moisture effect, probably from the fresh ingredients used which is fab!

I adore this sunscreen, I haven’t used anything like it, I love the it’s made from natural and organic ingredients and the amount of moisture that it infuses into your skin is amazing!  A little bit goes a long way!

The lip balm made my lips super moist and didn’t have that sticky wet feels that some lip balms do, overall I would say this is a perfect lip balm for the summer!
