JASON & Earth's Best Sun Care review

I still can't quite believe that in just one week, we'll be heading off for a fortnight in Turkey ! It was therefore perfect timing for us to receive this bundle of suncare products from JASON and its kids range, Earth's Best, to review. I must admit, I'd never heard of the JASON brand so I went online to investigate.

It's actually JĀSÖN (although I have no idea why !) and they have been around since 1959. Their "about us" page explains : "The JĀSÖN® brand is devoted to using only ingredients from the rich source of goodness that is earth’s garden and its natural resources. There are no artificial colours or animal by-products, the packaging is bio-degradable and packaged in recycled and/or recyclable containers. All products are certified Vegetarian too. Best of all they smell delightful!" Sounds great on paper, time to discover the products !

First up was the JASON Sun Family Sunscreen. With SPF 45 and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, it should provide great protection for the whole family in Turkey. The packaging promises a  non-greasy, tear-free, water-resistant formula - I found it a bit greasy and sticky but it is sun cream after all ! You should wait for 20 minutes after applying it before going out into the sun (as with all sun creams). It is also enriched with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and antioxidant Green tea extract to nourish the skin while it provides protection. (£11.99 for 113g)

Next was Earth's Best Mineral Sunscreen SPF30, specially designed for babies' and children's delicate skin. It is a light, non-greasy, fragrance free cream that protects vulnerable skin with an effective, mineral-based sunscreen that acts as a natural UVA/UVB reflective barrier. As an added bonus, it also stays water resistant for up to 40 minutes. (£9.99 for 113g)

The final product in our trio of sunburn-busters was the JASON Soothing 98% Aloe Vera, which can be used to calm and soothe dry, irritated, sun damaged or newly shaven skin.  With use, skin is calmed, balanced and nurtured back to its healthy-looking best. Made with natural ingredients, it is free from Parabens, SLS and Phthalates. (£5.99 for 240ml)

I was impressed with the skin test I tried, and they're now ready to go in the suitcase next week !
