Episencial All Natural Skincare – Baby Safe Summer Skincare Review, Giveaway & Discount (CLOSED 5/23)

episencial 1

Episencial sells natural skincare products designed just for babies and kids. Their products don’t have any icky stuff like parabens or phthlates, are manufactured using solar power, and are packaged in recycled and sustainable materials!

I received the SPF 35 Sunny Sunscreen (the MSRP for a 4 oz tube is $14), the SPF 6 Protective Face Balm (MSRP $5.99 for .75 oz) and the Soothing Cream (MSRP $10.99 for 4 oz.)

episencial 3 sunscreen

The sunscreen blocks UVA and UVB rays with zinc and titanium. It contains organic green tea extract, sesame, safflower and avocado oils, so it’s great for baby’s skin! Beeswax and organic shea butter make the sunscreen water resistant (not petroleum or chemicals.)

I have “issues” with the texture and feeling of products, but I love this Episencial sunscreen. It goes on smoothly without a lot of leftover white goop, and it doesn’t feel greasy. I am used to applying water resistant sunscreen, then washing my hands with soap 10 times to get the gross feeling off, and finding greasy spots all over everything my kids touched or leaned on!

episencial 5 protective face balm

The face balm is perfect for faces and lips, and contains aloe vera, cocoa butter and shea butter to soothe and moisturize. It’s fortified with vitamins A, C,D & E and contains raspberry juice, cranberry extract and grape seed.

Like the sunscreen, it has a nice texture and isn’t too heavy or greasy.

episencial 7 soothing cream

The soothing cream is perfect for itchy, irritated skin. It contains probiotics, cucumber extract, aloe vera, borage seed oil, jojoba seed oil, oat extract, safflower, green tea, neem oil and calendula extract. All ingredients are designed to soothe and heal dry skin and ezcema.

Keeping with the theme, it has a wonderful texture as well!

    Totally agree w/other comments about your giveaway rules… I don’t ‘tweet’, and can’t compete w/all those people who ‘tweet’ this stuff every day for a month – who actually READS all that stuff that people send, anyway?!?!?!?!
