First it’s important that I share that both my facial skin and my daughter’s skin are very sensitive. I have roseacea so I have to be very careful what I put on my face so it won’t cause a reaction. I’ve learned that products with natural ingredients are no surprise the safest course to go when selecting a facial skin care product or for the body for that matter. My daughter generally didn’t have a problem with her skin until the last few years. We were in Mexico a couple of years ago and used a “natural” sunblock on her which was approved to the reserve we were going to swim with the dolphins. They only allowed natural sunblocks into that park and stressed that we shouldn’t wear anything but a natural one.
Well my daughter’s face swelled up like a puffer fish, her cheeks were round, swollen and red, we eventually figure d out it was due to the sunblock. It was only a skin reaction thank goodness and not a full blown allergic reaction, so it did not constrict her throat etc.. Yet that same sun block that caused her face to swell was fine on me, we still don’t know what exactly in it cause the reaction.
Needless to say I was very cautious about trying a new product on her face and as well as mine. However I did find out that their products have natural sea elements such as kelp and sea water that have many wonderful benefits to the skin. These ingredients naturally contain vitamins, minerals and proteins that hydrate and nourish our skin as well as providing SPF protection. This was encouraging so I did a test spot on both my daughter and myself on the apples of our cheeks.
Yay no reaction so the next day I put a bit more and the same results no reaction. I’m super happy to report that we used both the 50 spf sport spray on our bodies and the 30 spf lotion on our faces all summer! We were in some very hot weather this summer as we travelled through California and were under the hot sun during our days at Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo, Huntington Beeach and more!
Here’s a before picture of putting the spray on my skin, then two after shots, one immediately after and one just three minutes later. It absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a greasy residue as I mentioned.
Our skin was well protected, we never burned once and the lotions and spray went on nicely, absorbed quickly and never left our skin feeling greasy. Well I have one confession to make, the day we did go to Huntington Beach my shoulders did get red but that’s because I forgot to put sunblock on my shoulders, silly me. Everywhere else I had put on the Miami Beach Suncare spray and lotion I was golden so to speak.
I tan quite easily so putting on sunblock is necessary for me so I don’t expose my skin too any more harmful rays than necessary.
I have another confession I didn’t take a before picture for when I used the Miami Suncare bronzer. I used it early on in summer before I had been out in the sun. So while my arms are not light as I have a bit of tan look all year, they picture above shows a bit of color after about 2 weeks after I used the bronzer. True to their word it did not streak and it was also safe on my skin.
Of course I had to show you on my other arm how quickly the lotion absorbs. It absorbed into the skin a lot quicker than the spray, as my after picture was literally seconds after.
Here’s some interesting info on the Miami Beach Suncare line
- The Miami Beach signature scent is like no other sunscreen – I can agree, it smells so good but it’s a light scent, it reminds you of the beach and ocean of course
- The triple acting sea kelp replenishes proteins and minerals lost in the sun, firms the appearance of your skin, and protects against photo-aging with its natural sunscreen properties.
- The Miami Beach Suncare line is used by Miami Beach Lifegaurds who are of course out in the sun all day and up to 1% of all product sales goes towards Miami Beach cleanup efforts.
See the Miami Beach Suncare sports spray and lotion protected my daughter’s skin all day at Huntington beach even after jumping waves several times!
So what does Powered by Mom think overall of the Miami Beach Suncare line? To sum it up we love the products, it works, it doesn’t cause any skin reactions to our sensitive skin and it’s now an essential item in our sun care arsenal. I also want to remind everyone that sunblock is not only for summer. Your skin can be damaged by harmful rays in the winter. Think of those bright but cold days, whether you’re at walking or going snowboarding or skiing on an mountain like we do your skin can be damaged from UV rays in fall, winter, spring and summer so have a good quality product on hand like Miami Beach Suncare and product your skin 365 days of the year so you can enjoy the great outdoors anywhere and any time.
