Summer Suncare Essentials With Live Clean Cruelty-Free Sunscreens


Summer is finally here, officially tomorrow! 🌞 Which means many of us will be getting outside a whole lot more and getting a lot more exposure to the damaging rays of the sun. So it's time to step up our suncare game and protect ourselves and our families from damaging UVA and UVB rays which pose a risk for sun damage, aging skin, and skin cancer.

Although it's a good thing to wear sunscreen all year round, it's important to take extra precautions during the Summer.

When looking for a good sunscreen, look for ones that offer both UVA and UVB protection. Mineral sunscreens are my favourite way to go as they are natural and they physically block UV rays. On the other hand, chemical sunscreens filter the rays and may pose potential health problems. Live Clean's Sunscreens are mineral based, are completely void of any chemical sunscreens, and offer both UVA and UVB protection, they're hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and do not contain nanoparticles.

Live Clean has been my go-to for years when it comes to affordable, accessible, natural mineral sunscreens that work! Live Clean is an eco-friendly beauty brand that uses natural and plant-based ingredients.


Live Clean Sport Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45:

This is a great choice when you're going in the water or playing sports as it's water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes. It has a thick consistency and doesn't leave a white cast like many mineral sunscreens can. It's naturally derived, doesn't contain chemical sunscreens, and is non-nano. It offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

Medicinal ingredients: Zinc Oxide 9.0%, Titanium Dioxide 7.0%


Live Clean Face Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45:

This is my favourite SPF to use on my face because it is non-comedogenic and therefore, I don't breakout! Many sunscreens will make me breakout if used on my face but this one does not. It also does not leave a white cast like many mineral sunscreens can. Again, no chemical sunscreens in this on and non-nano as well. This one also offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

Medicinal Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 9.0%, Titanium Dioxide 7.0%


Live Clean Sport Mineral Sunscreen Spray SPF 30:

This spray form is a great choice as it's so easy to apply with its continuous spray nozzle. It's especially helpful if you don't have someone around to help you get areas that you have difficulty reaching. This one offers water and sweat resistant protection for up to 40 minutes. Like the others, this offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection and does not contain any chemical sunscreens, and is non-nano.

Medicinal Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 16.5%


Live Clean 98% After Sun Aloe Vera Gel:

This is a must-have! I always make sure we have some all year round as it has so many uses! It has such amazing healing properties and helps to heal skin that's been exposed to the sun and can be used for minor burns. The aloe is naturally hydrating and will soothe your skin and reduce itching. It's 98% certified organic and is a special blend with certified organic Arnica Extract, Australian Tea Tree Oil, plus Vitamin E. Combined, these ingredients will reduce itching, hydrate and soothe your skin while replenishing the skin's moisture barrier.

Like all Live Clean Products, These Are:
  • petrolatum free
  • silicone free
  • paraben free
  • phthalate free
  • dye free
  • vegan
  • gluten-free
  • cruelty-free
  • hypoallergenic
  • fragrance-free
  • dermatologist tested
  • affordable and accessible


Other precautions we can take is to wear a hat, use an umbrella (especially when at the beach), there are even clothes available that have sun protection built in (I've seen some at Old Navy). Don't forget to protect your eyes with a good pair of sunglasses that offer both UVA and UVB protection.


Live Clean products are available at Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Well.ca

Wishing everyone a fun-filled and safe summer! 🍉

New! Live Clean Super Fruit Waters Quenching Curls Shampoo and Conditioner Review


I'm so excited to share with you that Live Clean has just launched 2 fabulous new products just in time for summer! If you're a curly and/ or frizzy hair person like me, you know how difficult it can be to deal with this type of hair. Live clean has just made it a whole lot easier with these new products. Read on to learn more..

Live Clean Super Fruit Waters Quenching Curls Shampoo and Conditioner provide curl hydration with ingredients that also tame frizz. The shampoo has micellar water! How cool is that!? 💦 As always, Live Clean has added organic botanicals and extracts. These contain watermelon seed, aloe vera, papaya, and more!


I put these products to the ultimate test by using them on my frizzy hair on a rainy day. I normally hate when I have to wash and style my hair on a rainy day as it makes my frizz that much worse! 

After using the shampoo and conditioner, I could see that as my hair was drying, my hair was not getting frizzy like it normally does.  I thought my hair might get weighed down by the conditioner but it did not. And, the scents are nice, light, and fresh!


Live Clean Super Fruit Waters Quenching Curls Shampoo:
Provides hydration while also taming frizz. This moisture-rich shampoo contains micellar water as well as a blend of certified organic extracts- Watermelon Seed, Aloe Vera, and Papaya. It cleanses without stripping moisture and removes product build-up from your hair which is another enemy of curls. It's hydrating, nourishing, and helps to de-frizz.


Live Clean Super Fruit Waters Quenching Curls Conditioner:
Provides curl hydration, tames frizz all without weighing hair down. It leaves your hair with soft, frizz-free, moisturized curls.

Like all Live Clean products, these are:
  • Plant and naturally derived
  • With certified organic botanicals
  • Petrolatum and paraben free
  • Silicone and phthalate free
  • DEA and phosphate free
  • Dye-free
  • Vegan and vegetarian
  • Cruelty-free- Leaping Bunny Certified 🐰
  • Hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested
  • Contains biodegradable ingredients
  • Packaging is recyclable

My verdict: As a naturally curly/frizzy haired girl, I am super happy with the new Super Fruit Waters Quenching Curls line as it tames my frizz without weighing down my hair. This will certainly come in handy in the upcoming hot and humid months when my hair is usually impossible to deal with!

SRP $7.49-$7.99
