These Products are a Must for the Summer!

Summer is here! Finally! I can’t wait to spend time at the beach!

Here are my favorites for the Summer!

Block Island Organics SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen

Block Island Natural Mineral (zinc only) Sunscreen – SPF 30.  It’s great for adults, kids, and babies over 6 months.  All of their products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dyes and artificial fragrances. They also don’t do animal testing and use vegan-based formulas.
I received a sample and I love how well it works! No sunburn for me!
Their sunscreen also made The Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Best Beach & Sport Sunscreen list for the third year in a row.
Here’s a bit more about them: Their belief is that good skin care is about good suncare as the sun is the leading cause of skin damage and premature aging.  Skin care doesn’t need to be complicated, overly expensive or chemically manufactured.  They believe that it is our responsibility to educate consumers, provide quality products and simplify the skin care process.

Bug Spray

Even if your child loves creepy, crawly things, mosquito bites and bee stings can make summer camp unpleasant. So don’t forget the bug spray — just be sure to use one made for kids. Fairy Tales Bug Bandit ($15) DEET-free formula ($13.95) promises to repel fleas, mosquitoes, ticks, and biting flies all with a mere spritz.  Plus, it is free of harsh chemicals, pesticides, toxins, parabens, sulfates, dairy, gluten, and nuts that can trigger allergic reactions.



There is nothing worse than a visit from Aunt Louise at summer camp! Close proximity in camp cabins and sharing caps and clothing create the perfect storm for a lice outbreak. To protect your child, simply pack a shampoo that will naturally repel lice. Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Daily Shampoo ($12.95) gently cleanses the scalp while a proprietary blend of organic Rosemary, Citronella, Tea Tree and Geranium oils help prevent lice.


Bed Bug Protectant

Camp cabins are a breeding ground for bed bugs. Not only will they leave your child with itchy bites, but they’ll also be coming home with them in their suitcase (yikes). Bed bug sprays are often harsh and unsafe, so be sure to read the ingredients before packing one. Fairy Tales Sleep Tite Bed Bug Spray ($5.95) is an EPF exempt formula that is classified as minimal risk and uses natural ingredients that have been shown to help kill bed bugs and their eggs.

I love that these really do work and that they aren’t full of chemicals! I highly recommend all of their products!

Who is ready for a BBQ?
 The 4th of July can be a hard time for those who eat gluten-free, and BFree would love to help with their soft rolls. The BFree Soft White Rolls and Brown Seeded Rolls are the perfect wheat-free substitute to grilling favorites such as hamburgers and sliders, allowing those living with Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity enjoy backyard barbecues again.
I had the opportunity to try out these Soft Rolls and they are simply delicious! I also love their Sweet Potato Wraps! They have a great variety of products to choose from and they are all gluten-free!
