A few months ago I fell in love with Eco Lips lip balm. It's almost all organic and is chockfull of ingredients great for your lips and effortlessly retains moisture.

I just recently discovered their Facestick with SPF 30 ($8.99). I don't know where to begin with my new love affair. First of all, it's almost impossible to find any sort of SPF that doesn't have extra chemicals involved in the product, like parabens. No joke, it's a challenge. So already we're on the right foot. Eco Lips Facestick is 82% organic, packed with goodies you want to rub all over your face: vitamin e, aloe vera, jojoba seed oil, coconut, calendula flower extract and rosemary.

The reason it's not fully organic is due to the active ingredients (sunblockers): octinoxate, octisalate, oxybenzone and avobenzone, all of which come in low percentages. So not only are you protecting your mug from UV rays but you're also moisturizing with the wealth of other organic ingredients. The fact its 82% certified organic makes it the most organic sunscreen on the market.

It's also an easy, breezy application. I used another SPF facestick once that left all sorts of white chalkiness on my face that I had to smear it in like no one's business. It also smelled like something that would sting on the tongue. Eco Lips Facestick literally glides on effortlessly without having to smear, and it doesn't feel heavy. How awesome is that??

Conveniently, it's just a stick. It goes right in my bag when I travel. I also love how it's SPF 30, a concentration that's strong enough for destinations like the Caribbean or India, or even summertime in New York.

I love the direction this company is heading and can't wait to see what else they have up their sleeve for the upcoming years.

Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, D-Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Organic Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract.

Active Ingredients:
Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Avobenzone (1%).

    I have actually been using the Face Stick as my regular lip balm. I *LOVE* the giant tube applicator. ... It's girth makes it easier to find in my Mary-Poppins-sized bags!

    I took a bunch of Face Sticks to Breckenridge this winter for a ski trip. My friends all loved them, noting that you could apply the sunscreen, in it's jumbo tube, without taking your gloves off! What an idea!!

    The best sunscreen i have found thus far! The oxybenzone does not bother me as much as skin cancer. I love this product!

    I had read that oxybenzone is dangerous because it can seep into your bloodstream and damage DNA. It's apparently banned in Australia.

    I picked up a stick at Vitamin World and used it for the first time. Loved it!! It feels great to put it on and the Face Stick did a great job of protecting me from the sun.
