Protecting Your Eyes in the Sun

by kelly / June, 11 2014 01:30
Summer is here and the Polar Vortex is gone! It’s been so nice to have sunshine and to be able to spend some weekends out and about, enjoying the weather. Of course I make sure to wear sunscreen every day and I might even put on a higher SPF in the summertime, as I tend to spend more time out in the sun than in the winters. I’m well covered on my face and body but one part I tend to neglect at times are my eyes. Yes your eyes need protection from the sun as well. [More]

Discovering Block Island - Painted Rock

by Will / June, 4 2014 01:30
Painted Rock is one of those local in-the-know things. You'll find a few posts about it on the internet but for the most part you'll either find out from a local or because you cruised right past. Quite literally, it is a painted rock on Block Island. Albeit one that's been painted hundreds if not thousands of times with message ranging from the absurd to wedding proposals to presidential welcomes and beyond. Plus, you can have a go at painting it any time you like... [More]

EWG Names Block Island Organics a Top Sunscreen

by Will / May, 28 2014 01:30
Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit consumer advocacy group, puts out a new sunscreen guide. This is the guide's 8th year and we are named one of the best sunscreens out there! What is the EWG guide? It contains hundreds of sunscreens / sunblocks the EWG examines and rates. They painstakingly look through sunscreens ingredient by ingredient to determine what works and what is safe. In their own words it "gives shoppers an easy-to-use, searchable online database to the safest, most effective sun protection products." [More]

7 Tips for Swimsuit Shopping

by kelly / May, 14 2014 01:30
It's the time of year again - the time of year when I come out of hibernation and have to actually groom my body again. It's summertime and that means swimsuit season. Ugh. I prefer turtle neck and wool pants seasons where I can keep my body hidden and unkempt. Ok was that too much information? No really I love the summer and sunshine, I do run a suncare company, I just dread swimsuit season and shopping for one. [More]
