Review: Dr. Mercola's Sunscreen and After Sun Moisturizing Cream

When we were approached by Dr. Mercola to write a review about his sunscreen we were delighted. We are avid followers of Dr. Mercola and we respect his work, especially his viewpoint on nutrition and health. If you've never heard of him we recommend looking him up! 

"I believe that proper nutrition, not medicine, is the key to good health." ~ Dr. Mercola

We lived in Arizona with our two families for over 15 years and rarely ventured outside without sunscreen. This is an area in which we felt we could give a fair review on since playing in the sun has been a big part of our lives. Stacy has worked for dermatologists for over twenty years and has seen the negative effects of too much unsafe sun exposure. 

When the Natural After Sun Moisturizing Cream and Sunscreen arrived we immediately put them to the test. Stacy's granddaughter just happened to be preparing to get in her swimming pool. Stacy slathered Dr. Mercola's Sunscreen SPF 50 all over her. 

"It was 94 degrees outside that day." 

It went on smoothly, rubbed in very easily. She reapplied it twice in the 90 minutes she was swimming. We found it to work rather excellent. There was no signs that she had been in the sun earlier that day by nightfall. 
We realize lot's of sunscreens that are on the market can achieve this same result but are not safe. We are sold on this sunscreen because it's all natural and safe to put on children's skin and our own. After all we are just little kids just all grown up! Stacy also was really impressed with the sunscreen herself as she has Vitiligo on the top of her hands, (which means her pigmentation is gone and you can burn very easily.) She also used this sunscreen on the top of her hands and found the sun was unable to penetrate the layer of protection. Which resulted in not burning the tops of her hands. 

The second product Dr. Mercola's Natural After Sun Moisturizing Cream with Astaxanthin is a huge hit with both our families. The light pleasant scent reminds us of the faint smell of baby powder. We just can't get enough. Carol is able to use this on her face without breaking out or any skin irritation. This shows us how pure it really is. She's used many products through the years, and maybe one out of 100 would not cause a break out or reaction of any kind. This moisturizing cream goes on smoothly and one of the great features of it is it has antioxidants in it, which is something we all need. Especially as we age. 

If you desire a toxic free lifestyle we highly recommend both these products.
