Image and video hosting by TinyPic As a fair-skinned gal with a history of sun cancer in her family on both sides, I try to always wear sunscreen and also make sure my two kids are protected. I was thrilled to test out some products from Smart Girls Who Surf. While you don’t need to surf to use their products, you’ll love their paraben free and chemical free products.

I was sent their Grab-N-Go Kit ($24.99), which contains FAA approved sizes of their Moisturizing Sunblock with 30 SPF, After Sun Soothing Lotion, Care for Hair Sun Protector (SPF 7), their natural glycerin Soap for Surfers, a single serve packet of their sunblock (great for your purse), an SPF 15 all natural lip balm (you’ll get either Vanilla or Cherry) and a black comb. It comes in a small, cute reusable small plastic tote.

My favorite products were their Moisturizing Sunblock and the Care for Hair Sun Protector. The Moisturizing Sunblock, with an SPF 30 for Face and Body is creamy, not greasy, and won’t sting your eyes. The 2 ounce size fit handily in my diaper bag. With UVA and UVB protection and an SPF of 30, it’s water resistant and hypoallergenic. Sunblock should be applied 20 minutes before you go outside, so it can soak into skin and reapplied every two hours that you are in the sun. For more info on preventing skin cancer, go to

Care for Hair Sun Protector is a leave-in conditioner and detangler that contains 6 conditioning agents (vitamins A, C, B1, B3, Arica Montana Flower extract and soy protein). Spritz this on your ponytail before you head out into the sun to help keep hair healthy.

Smart Girls Who Surf is a natural skin care company in Laguna Beach, California. It was started several years ago as a mother’s quest for a healthy alternative to sunscreens on the market. The company creates earth-friendly products without using toxic chemicals or synthetic preservatives. The company also gives back – they support several non-profit organizations, including Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), Surfrider Foundation, Girls, Inc., and SchoolPower, the Laguna Beach Education Foundation, as well as donating product to shelters. Their two product lines, Smart Girls Who Surf and Surf-Vival are tested on surfers and parents, not animals. A kids line called Smart Kids Who Surf is coming soon.

  1. Thanks a lot! That is a fine article. Hey, cool points. I will thank that person who said I should visit your blog. This is an important listing of advice and tips.

    Being a working mom in my late 20-ties, living in the Northwestern part of Idaho, and as a hobby, I run. Therefore, I have to deal with lower back pain quite often. After I did run my last marathon I had to take a time-out. It was hurting terribly. Now I have thankfully made a return to running, because I followed the advice I found here: Get Back Pain Relief Now and Lose The Back Pain (Get Your Free Pain Relief Guide!)

    Jesse Canonne, the founder of The Healthy Back Institute, recently published his brand new book titled “The 7 Day Back Pain Cure” and for the moment you can get it for FREE. Get a Gratis copy. And hurry – this offer is going to be taken of the market at any time!

    Thank you again and carry on your good work and much success!
