Best Moisturizers with SPF

Goddess Huntress | Best SPF Moisturizers

I’ve been asked many times what moisturizers with SPF I recommend and use.  I will say, I don’t test SPF for its effectiveness on my own, I let the Environmental Working Group do that professional lab testing stuff.  Every year they release their list of the BEST, clean, stable, and highly protective sunscreens, I recommend it as the SPF reference for all.

The EWG just released their 2014 Guide to Sunscreens this month, so here is a selection from their list of THE BEST SPF MOISTURIZERS that are worth us giving a spin.

Find out what other sunscreens made the EWG best list for 2014 HERE.

And as always, stay the hell away from sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate, they can mutate into carcinogens in sunlight.

Practice safe sun, everyone!

*Please note these sunscreens are pictured because they made the EWG Best Sunscreens List. There may be some ingredients that some may deem controversial in any of these formulas, please read ingredient lists and chose accordingly to your temperament. I am slightly more lenient when it comes to SPF, I chose high-level, stable UV protection as my priority because of my father’s melanoma history and am willing to let a couple not-so-clean ingredients slip by (only a couple, no more than that).

Bloxsun UPF 50 Sun Scarf Giveaway

Goddess Huntress | Bloxsun UPF Scarf Giveaway

I have an Instagram addiction. I love getting introduced to brands and people through their beautiful imagery. Last month I discovered Bloxsun, a company that produces large scarves that can be worn as sarongs, dresses, and shoulder wraps.  Not only do they have sweet prints, the scarves protect you from UV damage with UPF 50! The sun protection comes from the weave of the fabric.

My mind was blown. I’m a design snob and I have never liked or worn clothing with SPF, known as UPF in the clothing world, because what was out there did not look stylish on.  My heart melted when I discovered Bloxsun, because they cracked the code.  Chic pieces that even a person who isn’t looking for sun protective clothing would wear it.  I mean, how great is this look they posted on Insta?

I contacted Bloxsun and practically jumped out of their computer screen and tackled them with a big hug, lots of praise, and immediately included them in my Summer Essentials List.  I love how relationships can brought about via Instagram.

Right then a partnership was born!

I am THRILLED and OVER THE MOON to join Bloxsun during Melanoma Awareness Month for a Sun Scarf giveaway!  Bloxsun will love to give one lucky Goddess Huntress reader their Chain Link Sun Scarf in pink, pictured below. Dimensions are 30″ x 58″ approx.
