After all my searching for a facial sunscreen I realized that I also needed a sunscreen for my lips, very important but commonly overlooked (which also seems to be the case with ears and feet)! So I checked EWG’s Skin Deep and came across SanRe Organics. They were offering a 10 or 20% discount for new customers and free shipping at the time so I figured why not order both of their SPF lip balms! They arrived promptly and I loved them both the minute I tried them!
The SPF 15 lip balm in a twist up tube is appropriately named “Chocolate Kiss”. It smells and tastes delicious while not being overly sweet or foody. It’s very moisturizing and leaves no white cast as you might expect from an SPF balm. Note that SanRe Organics does NOT use nano particles in their products.
The SPF 30 balm “Sweet Kiss” has a very subtle vanilla lemon scent. It’s also very moisturizing and leaves no white cast. I love that this one has a higher SPF, but it comes in a round tin and personally I prefer twist up tubes. Neither of these lip balms are tinted, so perfect for children and men too!
SanRe is a cruelty-free company. It’s owned by a mother and daughter team based in Sarasota, FL. If you happen to live in Florida check out your local Whole Foods for SanRe products! From their website http://www.sanreorganic.com/catalog/ “SanRe products are: Paraben FREE; Phthalate FREE; Petrochemical FREE; Propylene Glycol FREE; Synthetic Fragrance FREE; Sodium Laurel Sulfate FREE; Chemical Preservative FREE;and Artificial Color FREE!”
In addition to fantastic lip balms SanRe also offers a whole range of skincare products from eye creams to toners. My next purchase from them will definitely include their Sparkling Aloe facial moisturizer with SPF 30 for oily skin (their Supple Sunshine SPF 30 moisturizer is for those with dry to normal skin).
