and Block Island Sunscreen.


I get quite a few freebies sent to me to try out.  Since everyone’s preferences are unique, if I don’t like something, I don’t put up a review rather than offering negative comments. When I DO like a product, it’s really enjoyable promoting it on my site which is why I’m posting this “Product Love” post today.  Two great product, and if you’ve tried them, I’d love to hear your opinion ‘cause what you’re about to read is all my own opinion.

Rudi’s Gluten Free Bread

The other product I’m loving and, seriously, everyone should fall in love with a sunscreen for their own health and wellness, is Block Island Sunscreen.


Block Island is a suncare focused, majority woman owned, family skin care company. Their sunscreen is a Natural Mineral (zinc only) Sunscreen – SPF 30.  Since it’s great for active adults, I immediately thought what a great find for those hours on the road during a marathon or on those hot and sunny long run training days. Since the sunscreen is free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, dyes and artificial fragrances PLUS they don’t test on animals AND they use a vegan-based formula, this made trying this product a win – win for me.


Did you know that the sun is the leading cause of skin damage and premature aging?  In addition, good products for your skin don’t have to list complex ingredients, be overly expensive, tested on the innocent (animals – boooo!) or have fancy chemicals added. Sunscreen should be applied daily on exposed areas of the skin. The sun doesn’t have to be shining and it doesn’t have to be noon to 3pm. Sun damage can occur during all daylight hours AND on an over cast day.


I loved the easy to handle bottle, the creamy yet non-greasy texture, and the way it easily absorbed into my skin. Check it out your self. It’s really important to find a good #sunscreen.
