SDMB Approved: Beautycounter’s Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist

This post is sponsored by Beautycounter, but as always, the thoughts expressed are 100% my own.

As we prepare to become parents, we begin to research is what is safe and healthy for our precious babies. Oftentimes, we learn that we shouldn’t use any sunscreen at all on them, and that we should keep them entirely out of the sun. Then we learn that we should choose a mineral-based sunscreen, and one that is non-aerosol due to inhalation concerns. As it turns out, what is safe for our babies is also what all of us should be using, both for human health AND for the health of our oceans. 

Beautycounter’s Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist SPF 30!  It’s the gold standard in sunscreen.

Tell us about your experience:
I have found a sunscreen that is not only is great for the environment, it’s easy to work with.  BC’s sunscreen sprays at any angle—so no awkward requests to get those hard-to-reach places.

Any tips or recommendations for people who purchase the product or service?
It’s reef-friendly, meaning the ingredients in it are not toxic to coral or any marine life in the coral reef ecosystem. So, just because a product label says “no oxybenzone” or “oxybenzone free,” that does not mean it is “reef safe”.  Countersun Mineral Sunscreen also retains its stated SPF value for up to 80 minutes while in water or sweating.

Anything else you would like us to know?

Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and California Poppy, this physical SPF 30 formulation provides an effective shield from UVA and UVB while staying gentle and pleasant on the skin. It sprays on white to help guide application, blends in easily, and dries quickly without an oily residue. 

The revolutionary packaging uses only compressed air, not propellant chemicals like aerosol cans. When the button is pushed, air pressures squeezes the sunscreen out of the airless bag inside.

On a Scale of 1-10 (1 being worst / 10 being best) what would you rate this product?
