Firefly New Beginnings with Giveaway **Closed**



I have an awesome shop in my town here in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island! Firefly New Beginnings has some great products. They carry bottles, sippy cups, nursing and maternity wear, some great kids clothing lines, sunscreen, baby body wash, shampoo, children's stainless steel water bottles, dishes, diaper bags and more. They have everything you could need for your pregnant self or your kids. I love there stuff and just love browsing through there site.



Firefly New Beginnings sent me some of their Healing Bliss Sunscreen. Its 100% natural. Now I am always a bit weary or trying natural sunscreen now after previously trying some other stuff. The other stuff was white and thick and didn't rub in, no matter how long you tried. It was a nice thin sunscreen that rubbed in no problem. It was an SPF 45 and worked awesome. Because its a natural sunscreen its not supposed to penetrate your skin, which makes total sense. No worries about it being all sticky or anything though, it rubs on and you don't even notice it right away. Awesome stuff!





Here's a little bit about the sunscreen:

The Benefits of Natural Sunscreens - Natural sunscreen agents that use zinc and titanium minerals are better for both health and beauty. Titanium, when used for sunscreen purposes, is coated so that it does not penetrate the skin but rather performs as a shield.

We use a micro-ionized titanium dioxide to naturally deflect the suns rays before they can cause skin damage. This non-whitening, naturally occurring mineral compound is safe for moms and babies. Healing Bliss Botanicals gives you the most complete natural UVA/UVB protection for your precious loved ones!

Why is natural body care important? Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies, acting as our protector and filter from pollutants of the outside world. At the same time, our skin allows us to absorb things into our bodies – for better or worse. If we think about some of the medications/treatments that are absorbed by our skin (the birth control patch, or nicotine patch are two common examples) we begin to understand why we should pay careful attention to the products that we slather on our skin everyday. Healing Bliss Botanicals has a philosophy, if something is not safe to ingest, it should not be put on our skin either. We tend to forget that the things we put on our bodies have direct, lasting impacts on our health. I encourage you to read the ingredient labels on your favourite products and compare them to the simple ingredients listed below. Healing Bliss Botanicals products are cruelty free and never contain any preservatives, artificial ingredients or food dyes commonly found in many body care products.

Use them with confidence and peace of mind.
