I am a huge fan of all Naked Bee products. I have their body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. I also have their butter lotion, Chap Stick, and hand sanitizer products. I recently purchased their face and body moisturizing sunscreen and am so glad that I did. My skin is very sensitive and I try to only buy naturally organic products for my skin and hair.  Naked Bee is definitely one of the best brands of organic bath and body products I have ever come across.

The Product:

The Naked Bee Vitamin C enriched moisturizing sunscreen contains only all-natural ingredients. Their ingredients includes: Avobenzone 1.5%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Octisalate 5%, Oxybenzone 5.5% INGREDIENTS: purified water, glycerin, octyl palmitate, sunflower oil, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, glyceryl stearate, cetearyl alcohol, stearic acid, methyl gluceth-20, capric caprylic triglycerides, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, melatonin, lemon bioflavinoids, honey, heat shock proteins, super oxide dismutase, emblica offinalis, borage oil, flaxseed oil, rose hip oil, tocopherol acetate, hyaluronic acid, ergocalciferol, retinyl palmitate, green tea extract, mixed tocopherol acetate, cocoa butter, allantoin, panthenol, carbomer phenoxyethanol, ethyl hexyl glycerin, essential oil and fragrance.

This sunscreen is SPF 30 and nourishes skin while providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. In order to use the sunscreen properly, simply apply it liberally on the face and body about 20 minutes before exposure to the sun. You then will want to reapply the sunscreen once every 3-4 hours while outside in the sun.

The Pros:

I cannot sing enough praise about Naked Bee SPF 30 sunscreen. First off, the smell is absolutely magnificent. Many other sunscreens have that distinct “sunscreen” smell to them. The Naked Bee does not give off a bad odor whatsoever. It smells even better once it is applied to the skin and the scent will last for hours on end.

This sunscreen also does work the way it’s supposed to. I have very fair and sensitive skin and use this SPF 30 for superior protection. I do not get burned at all when I use the Naked Bee. It also does not cause me to break out like many other well-known brands of sunscreen do. This is probably because it is made from all natural ingredients. The Naked Bee sunscreen also hydrates the skin and nourishes it. In the past, I have used sunscreens and noticed that after my day at the beach was over my skin was dry and rough. The Naked Bee makes sure it feeds your dehydrated skin and gives it the nourishment it needs to keep it healthy, soft, and hydrated.

Probably the most important aspect is that it does not leave my skin oily after it’s applied. I cannot stand using sunscreens that make my skin oily and sweaty after application. I have never had a problem with greasy skin after using Naked Bee SPF 30 sunscreen. It also does not rub off an oily residue on clothing or on towels. The sunscreen stays right on your skin like it is supposed to.

The price of the product is also pretty great. For only $12.00 you get a top quality sunscreen that works well and allows you to feel protected from harmful UV rays throughout the day. I’ve used this product on myself and on my little nieces and nephews. It worked well for the children and they actually commented on the smell, saying that it smelled “yummy”.  I’ve also let several friends use this product. They have all recently turned to Naked Bee products and have never looked back

The Cons:

As I have said, I have nothing but praise for this product. However, if I had to choose one thing I didn’t like I suppose it would be that the bottle is not sturdily made. The sunscreen has leaked from the side openings of the bottle a few time which is a major bummer because I hate sharing this product let alone completely wasting it.

Would I recommend Naked Bee Sunscreen to my family and friends? Heck to the yes! It smells refreshing and delicious, it works perfectly, and it does not leave me feeling like a buttery mess after application.  It is seriously one of my favorite products in the world. I do not leave home without it. In fact, I have a travel size bottle in my purse at all times in case I am somehow stuck outdoors for hours or end with no protection. I’d also suggest people to check out their other products. You will not be disappointed.
