Episencial Summer Skin Care Review and Giveaway

Episencial Summer Skin Care products are perfect for my family. We all have blue or green eyes with very sun vulnerable skin. We don't tan we burn! I have always tried to be sun safe for myself but since my son  was born I want to be sun safe and chemical free. The current brand of sunscreen we use it not chemical free and that concerned me. My husband also hated the slimy feel of our old sunscreen on my sons skin.

We tried Episencial Sunny Sunscreen for the first time on Easter. We were having a picnic and day out at the park and in the Cali sun we always need lots of sunscreen. The first thing I loved was the texture of the sunscreen. It went on my sons face smooth and absorbed quickly. He didn't even seem to notice it was on his skin. Our last brand he would rub and wipe his face form the minute I put it on him. I was a little concerned that it was only SPF 35 since I normally put SPF 50 or more on my family. I was impressed that he was not red or anything on any of his skin when we got home that night. We were in the sun for 6 hours on Easter and he was fine.

I suffer from seasonal allergies that always make me have to constantly blow my nose. No matter what brand of tissue I use I always get really dry skin around my nose. I tried the Soothing Cream on my nose before bed and woke up with almost completely healed skin. I was shocked and pleased that I now know what brand I can use for my dry skin on my face.

We walked around the baseball field by our house on a windy day last week and before we left I put the Protective Face Balm on my little guys cheeks. He tends to get dry skin and a chapped look on windy days. He had a blast running around the baseball field and when we got home he was as cute as a button as always, and no red cheeks! I will use it on the underside of his nose next time he gets a runny nose.

Overall I really liked the Episencial line of skin care. I of course love the organic ingredients and the label but I loved the most that they worked. We have sensitive skin so it was nice to find a great product that was not overwhelming with scents. I would definitely try these for your self.
