LASPA Sun Care~ Protecting your skin naturally from the sun with mineral sunscreen

I have something to tell you. 

I never wear sunscreen. What kind of esthetician am I? I mean, I’ve never found a sunscreen that I liked for my face and body until I discovered LASPA Suncare.  I had a crazy pigmentation spot on my face last summer that drove me crazy.  It’s now gone mind you, but that was my wake up call.  “Erica, you need an SPF.” 
I’ve been looking for one to use and I don’t just slap on any type of sunscreen, I care about the ingredients and I’ll never use the drugstore brands.  Sorry.  Don’t like what’s in them.

Since having the twins I’ve found my skin tans/burns a lot quicker than it used to.  Hormones and sun sensitivity is a thing. Then I got this email from a Canadian company that makes a natural SPF called LASPA.  I was intrigued as I always am when it comes to discovering new skin care brands.  They have two types to choose from.  I do like them equally the same, one has an SPF of 20 and the other 30 and for sensitive skin.

LASPA Sun Protection Mineral Sunscreen  SPF 20 is lovely and I love how it goes on and melts into my skin without any icky residue, okay it’s my favourite.

In natural lighting, you’ll see how nice it goes into the skin without any white residue.  It’s a light & translucent.

Features:

LASPA Moisturizing Mineral Suncare SPF 30 is a little thicker and creamier with a touch of more white but it blends and melts into the skin and you’re not left looking like Casper.  I’ve massaged this into my husbands bald head and I am happy that I’ve convinced him to switch to a better quality sun care product and I use it on my kids for when I know we’ll be out all day.

After a little massage into my skin, you’ll see it goes on smooth and leaves a very, very faint shadow of white compared to my fingertips.  THIS is for sensitive skin and my little strawberry blonde little girl with her freckles and pale skin this will protect her from burning.

Using a sunscreen that is labelled Broad Spectrum is important to protect your skin from BOTH forms of UV light that can harm and damage your skin over time.  An SPF sunscreen that is NOT BROAD SPECTRUM only protects you from UVB rays and leaves you exposed to the harmful effects of UVA Rays (such as premature ageing, wrinkles, and pigmentation). A zinc-based mineral sunscreen provides Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection and this is what is so great about LASPA.  It’s made in Canada with plant-based ingredients and you can feel good putting on an SPF cream that is good for your skin as well.  You don’t have to worry about the bad ingredients found in the other guys, like chemical sunscreen ( I call it sunSCARE).  Why? The common ingredients of concern include Oxybenzone, Homosalate, and Octinoxate. Oxybenzone has been associated with developmental and reproductive toxicity, allergies and immunotoxicity, all of which is of greater concern because it also enhances skin absorption. Homosalate is used as a sunscreen agent to absorb UV light. Research shows that as it absorbs UV rays, homosalate will break down into what the Environmental Working Group refers to as harmful byproducts. Octinoxate is considered by The European Commission on Endocrine Disruption to have hormone-mimicking effects.  To learn more about the benefits of mineral suncare, head over {here}.

    I am NOT very good at sun screen. I never wear it. That being said, I am not really one to lay out or be outside in the hot and glaring sun for all that long, so I feel like the amount of time I AM in the sun is enough to get the vitamin D benefits and that’s it LOL!

    • Mama Ash | 22nd May 18

      Sounds good to me! I only use it when we are out for long periods of time like cocktails on a patio.

  2. Heather | 22nd May 18

    Well I can understand. Some of those sunscreens seem pretty oily and I wouldn’t want to put it on my face. I’m glad they now make SPF lotions that are not greasy. It looks liek really like this stuff, so I might give it a try as well.

    • Mama Ash | 14th Jun 18

      Yeah, some can be. This one goes on so nice, I hope my pics show how good it is.

  3. Rose Ann Sales | 23rd May 18

    Never tried to use this but it looks like a great skin care product and I want to protect my skin from the sun.

  4. Ruth I. | 23rd May 18

    These are interesting products to try! I am always at home and I thought I never need skincare but I guess I was wrong.

    • Mama Ash | 23rd May 18

      If you’re out and in the sun for long periods of time…better to protect!

  5. BONNIE GOWEN | 23rd May 18

    I’d never heard of this brand before, but it sounds like a good one. I would definitely love to check it out.

  7. Sara Welch | 23rd May 18

    I need good lotion with lots of sunlight. It can hurt me pretty easily if not.

  8. Heather | 24th May 18

    Living in FL, the most important thing is protecting our skin from the sun. I’m always on the hunt for new products.

  9. Lynndee | 24th May 18

    This is the first time that I’ve heard of this brand, but I love all the features. Those are the things that I look for when buying skincare products.

    I really was looking for a new naturally sun mineral sunscreen. I really need a cream with SPF 50. I need a high protection!

    I’ve never heard of this brand but your your review was great and I love that it’s made in Canada.

  15. Ian O. | 3rd Jun 18

    I’m guilty of not applying sunscreen as often as I should, or ever…lol. I do love the sound of this product, all natural and free from toxic chemicals, part of what kept me from reaching for the sunscreen. Nice to know there is something safe to turn to for myself and my family. Made in Canada to boot, love it!

  16. Kristi Friesen | 3rd Jun 18

    Mineral sunscreen is the only type I’ll buy now. I hadn’t heard of this brand before but it looks great!

  17. jan | 3rd Jun 18

    I too have always hated sunscreen … and it does really show.

  18. kristen visser | 4th Jun 18

    Now this is what I really need! I always make sure to take care of my girls when it comes to suncare that sometimes I forget about myself

  19. Rosanne Robinson | 5th Jun 18

    This is the first time that I’ve heard of this brand and it sounds amazing, thanks very much for this informative review!

  20. nicky | 6th Jun 18

    Having SPF in my products is so important throughout the summer months.

  21. Jennifer P. | 8th Jun 18

    I wear sunscreen on my face every day, and this one sounds lovely!! Love that it’s mineral sunscreen – I try to avoid chemicals as much as possible.

    • Mama Ash | 14th Jun 18
