Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I recently discovered a luxury sunscreen brand that I am thoroughly impressed by, and thought that it was worth extolling its virtues.
Soleil Toujours Sunscreen Mist SPF 50 ($34.00 for 6 oz. from Soleil Toujours, Dermstore, Bluemercury, Cult Beauty, Space NK, Revolve, Barneys New York and Net-A-Porter): This SPF 50 sprays on completely clear, it features broad spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, and it contains a selection of organic ingredients that nourish the skin. Ingredients such as Green Tea Leaf, Vitamin E, Red Algae, Cucumber Extract and Hyaluronic Acid, to name a few, nurture, hydrate and protect the skin, and the formula is weightless and non-sticky.

According to Soleil Toujours, 

This clear broad spectrum formula is the only 70%+ organic sunscreen mist formulated without oxybenzone or octinoxate. These two chemicals are the most common sunscreen actives found in the marketplace and are known endocrine disruptors and highly allergenic. They have also been shown to cause coral bleaching, ultimately killing coral reefs.  Soleil Toujours brings you the best in class of clear sunscreen mists free of the common harmful chemicals that also enrich and nourish the skin with potent antioxidants.

While it is a chemical sunscreen it contains:
- NO Oxybenzone- shown to cause biochemical or cellular level changes & endocrine disruption. Named allergen of the year in 2014 and absorbs through the skin in significant amounts. It contaminates the bodies of 97% of Americans according to research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- NO Octinoxate - shown to cause biochemical or cellular level changes & endocrine disruption. Enhanced skin absorption is shown to have hormone-mimicking effects on laboratory animals. This chemical is found in humans, including mothers' milk samples.

It does contain: 
-EcoSunComplex, their proprietary power packed composition of Red Algae, Vitamin C Ester, Vitamin E and Bisabolol. Helps to: boost SPF, reduce UV-induced skin damage, prevent loss of firmness, and increase skin smoothness.
-Green Tea Leaf Extract, rich in antioxidants that help reduce oxidative stress by fighting cell damage caused by free radicals.

- 70%+ ORGANIC formula.
- The ONLY organic clear sunscreen formula formulated without oxybenzone and octinoxate.
- Water resistant 80 minutes.
- Coral reef safe.

Directions: Apply liberally 20 minutes before sun exposure. Use in well-ventilated areas.
Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying and at least every 2 hours. Children under 6 months: Ask a doctor.

Soleil Toujours Aloe Antioxidant Calming Mist ($26.00 for 3.2 oz. from Soleil Toujours, Space NK, Dermstore, BluemercuryBarneys New York, Net-A-Porter and Revolve): This mist feels a bit more like a serum that a traditional mist. It is a little thicker that a mist, and it is very pampering and calming to inflamed and irritated skin. It is formulated to calm dry and dehydrated skin- that is often associated with sunburn and windburn- but it does an enviable job calming red, inflamed and generally irritated skin. The antioxidant-rich formula, which contains Green Tea Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Oil and Grape Seed Extract, helps to protect the skin against free radicals and the Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid effectively hydrate the skin and maintain hydration. It sprays on clear, sinks into the skin quickly, and leaves behind no greasy residue.

According to Soleil Toujours,

It is formulated with Soleil Toujour's proprietary "Hydra Volume" formula, which features their EcoSunComplex, and it effectively plumps, smoothes, hydrated and protects the lips. It is a tinted lip balm, and L'Orangerie is a gorgeous peachy nude shade that is perfect for anyone who loves this shade of nude, like me! It has a light, warm and creamy aroma that is punctuated by the tiniest bit of Peppermint Oil, but it is barely detectable since it is the penultimate ingredient on the list.
