I'm back with another product spotlight! About a month ago, I brought Jan Marini's Body Block sunscreen with me on my 4th of July trip to Savannah. I've been pretty careful with my skin these days and that includes protecting my entire body from sun damage.
I already love Jan Marini's Face Protectant, see review here, so I wanted to see how the body version held up.
Jan Marini's Body Block SPF30 is a waterproof, broad sprectrum sunscreen. Over time, this product is meant to prevent skin aging from sun exposure.

First off, you saw my last review on the Bioglycolic Resurfacing body scrub. The Body Block is meant to be used right after. The scrub preps the skin. Like many sunscreens, you're supposed to apply this prior to sun exposure. I smoothed some on in my hotel room before I hit the pool and beach. The first thing I noticed was the yummy scent - mmm citrus, sugar and coconuts. Also, this sunscreen applies super smooth! Most sunscreens are really thick, leaving white streaks that require extra rubbing in. The Body Block melted right into my skin, cutting the application time in half.
I wore this to the beach and pool and experienced no redness or irritation. This contains SPF30, so it still allowed me to become nice and bronzey without turning bright red. Throughout the day I would reapply this to make sure I stayed protected.
-amazing texture, blends right in
-extremely hydrating - the moisture component is a plus
-oil-free and dries matte - doesn't clog pores and won't spur body acne
-spf 30 might not be enough for some folks
-I wish the bottle was jumbo size!
This product is definitely staying in my beach bag. I've never had a body sunscreen that blended so well into my skin before - it's a keeper!
