Excited to share with you my full review of Earth Mama Organic's Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Stick! This is a new product for Earth Mama and one I couldn't wait to use. I'm always up for trying a new sunscreen stick, especially because they're so easy to use.

Plus, it's summertime and I could use all the sun protection I can get- especially on my face. If you've followed me long enough you know I'm pretty diligent about keeping my face shielded from the sun. That's the best anti-aging treatment for avoiding sun spots and aging.
I love Earth Mama Organic's focus on pregnant moms and postpartum. The founder is Melinda Olson, a mother and nurse whose passion for herbs and helping others rid their lives of toxins led her to create Earth Mama. She began making salves, teas and tinctures in her garage. Eventually she outgrew that space and so many others in her house and moved into a full blown facility. Thus Earth Mama Organics was born.
What's even cooler? 20 years later Melinda still makes the formulas, is the head of Earth Mama Organics and still loves herbs!
I love the whole approach to Earth Mama Organics and how they are raising the standard when it comes to creating effective and safe products for mama and baby.
When they sent me their new Lady Face Mineral Sunscreen Stick I couldn't wait to use it!
What makes the Earth Mama Organic's Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Stick unique?
Well for starters it's tinted! They offer a light/medium tint and a medium/dark tint. The colors are buildable depending on what kind of coverage you want. Plus, the colors can be used with various skin tones. The tint offers just a hint of warmth and glow to the skin. It's like getting a tan without actually getting a tan- pretty awesome!
It also has a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection of SPF 40 & water-resistant(up to 40 min.), which I was excited to see. Often a lot of sunscreen sticks don't offer that much SPF. Plus, Earth Mama's Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Stick uses mineral non-nano zinc for the sun protection. No nasty chemicals! It's also the only tinted sunscreen stick to be third party certified through NSF/ANSI 305 organic standard. Oh and it's reef friendly! I love how they go the extra mile to ensure a product is not only clean, but effective and safe for the environment.
This is one sunscreen you don't have to think twice about using when pregnant and breastfeeding too! It is completely pregnancy safe. It's so nice to be able to pick up a product and know that it's been tested and approved for use in pregnancy. So many products I always have to double check, research, which that can take a lot of time. Knowing that I can easily pick up Earth Mama Organic's Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Stick and recommend it without thinking twice is huge!
It also rates a 1 on EWG and has been dermatologist tested for irritation.
So what did I think of Earth Mama Organic's Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Stick?
I was super impressed! I love how it can be worn alone or underneath makeup. I would apply my moisturizer or oil first and then the sunscreen stick. The formula glides on so smoothly and leaves my skin feeling hydrated but not greasy at all. I find some sunscreen sticks in the past have left my skin feeling greasy or just a little too shiny. Not the Earth Mama Organic's Mineral Tinted Sunscreen. It left a semi-matte finish that really pulled my whole look together.
I loved being able to just apply the mineral tinted sunscreen stick quickly and still feel put together if I wasn't doing a whole makeup look. Especially for the days when I was going to be at the pool or outside with my kids. It's SO easy to use! Plus, I noticed how easy it was to travel with. I would just throw it in my purse and I didn't have to worry about it leaking or spilling out. Something I love!
Not only did I feel put together with just the stick but also loved knowing I was getting some good sun protection with the SPF 40. No sunburns here. The best of both worlds! In addition, my skin looked like it already had a little tan, something I'm all about!
Earth Mama Organics really hit it on the head when they created the Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Stick. It performs so well, while at the same time is completely nontoxic and safe during the pregnancy and baby years.
I've also been loving their Belly Oil, Belly Butter and their Third Trimester Tea as I'm well into my third trimester. I rub the belly oil on everyday, and use the belly butter after I shower. The Third Trimester tea is so soothing and calming.
