MelanSol 100% Natural Sunscreen Review and Giveaway


Hi Neighbors!

So great to be back home! I have a great product that we used while in Kentucky. You know Get Out and Get Active! We spent two full days outside. One day was overcast most of the day and the other alternated between sunshine and cloudy, with a small rain shower thrown in for extra measure. I brought the MelanSol 100% Natural Sunscreen along knowing we would be out all day. Then I did something really dumb! I shared it with everyone and didn't use any myself. So...I am sunburned! Next time I will use the MelanSol. One of my daughters burns like I do, and she used the MelanSol 100% Natural Sunscreen and didn't even get light pink, while I was bright red.


MelanSol may be used on the face and body. It contains powerful Antioxidants, Natural Vitamin E, Bio-Melanin, and Green Tea. The UVB rating is SPF30 and the UVA rating is PA+++. MelanSol is also water resistant. MelanSol is a natural and hypoallergenic sunscreen lotion. No Chemical UV Filters, colors or scents. You can find MelanSol on Facebook .


You may apply generously and evenly to all exposed areas before exposure to the sun. Just gently massage into the skin. You should apply again after swimming and towel drying. The lotion is darker than most sunscreens I have previously used, but after rubbing the lotion in you really can not tell a difference. The fragrance smells sort of like citrus, but it is not strong. The best thing about Melansol is, no chemicals. MelanSol is safe for children. MelanSol also carries a Sunscreen with a Spf of 25, and one with SPF of 10, and a 100% Natural Moisturizer. If there is not a retailer near you, you can order MelanSol 100% Natural Sunscreen SPF30 on their website for $28.95 for a 6 oz bottle.

My daughter and a close friend posed for this picture after applying MelanSol 100% Natural Sunscreen.
So, if you are going to Get Out and Get Active, remember to bring your MelanSol with you. Even on cloudy days you need protection.

Here is another friend putting on the 100% Natural Sunscreen fromMelanSol.

It's nothing amazing but I really liked the fact that they have up to spf 30. I like higher ones because I burn easy.

I visited the site and learned every ingredient in MelanSol® sunscreen has been selected because of its ability to help your body repair and rejuvenate. The formula conditions, nourishes and hydrates as well. Most importantly, MelanSol® 100% natural skin care supports your cells with protection against skin cancer.
