For those who have asked, or wondered…
Facts: I am writing this review because the Badger Balm Damascus Rose Face Sunscreen Lotion worked for me–not because it was sent to me for free! I’m under no obligation; and I accepted the product for review because I had already purchased, and love, another Badger Balm Sunscreen, for my family:

What is Super Spectacular About Badger Balm Damascus Rose Face Sunscreen:
Non-Nano— Badge Balm sunscreens do not contain Nanoparticles
“The NSF is an American National Standard written specifically for personal care products containing organic ingredients. Since it is not a food standard, it recognizes and allows certain safe processes and ingredients that are critical and unique to personal care product effectiveness. This product is Certified to Contain Organic Ingredients” Also, Badger explained this further: “One thing to note about the NSF is that it’s a great certification for things that cannot be USDA Certified Organic, like our sunscreen. The reason we don’t put NSF on all of our products is because they are USDA certified, so we can use that seal instead.”
This product has been Certified Natural by the Natural Products Association
Noncomedogenic–The sunscreen has been dermatologist tested & approved. It won’t clog pores.
I love that Badger Balm Damascus Rose has antioxidants in the sunscreen! I know they’re important, but I asked the Badger Balm staff if they would please provide an explanation for my readers since I wasn’t sure I would give an adequate explanation.
Direct quote from Badger Balm for Moxie:
Antioxidants are important for the body to help neutralize free radicals caused by environmental pollutants and UV rays. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals that cause damage to cells and metabolic processes when let loose in the body. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by bonding with them, making the free radicals stable.
Antioxidants can be found in plant based oils and are also vitamins such as vitamins A, C, & E. They are beneficial when eaten, and also when applied topically. We believe it is especially important to protect the skin from harmful free radicals, since our skin is the first defense system of our bodies. That is why all Badger products are made with ingredients, including the organic oils and butters, that are rich in antioxidants.
Our sunscreens not only provide protection from the sun, they also fight the damaging and aging processes associated with free radicals. By applying antioxidants to our skin, we help our skin fight damaging free radicals to keep us healthy and young.
Thoughts about Badger Balm Damascus Rose Sunscreen:
Damascus Rose is great because it feels very light. I wore it with and without makeup. Kept me from getting sun in both circumstances! One of the times I wore it was during a miniature golfing outing with the family.
When applied, you really have to get up close (to a mirror) to see any white-colored lotion traces; of course, no white traces would be visible when it’s under makeup.
Use it on your face and your neck to not only protect you from the sun’s rays, but also to moisturize.
This is for use on all skin types, but Badger wants everyone to know that it is especially ideal for if you have dry and/or delicate skin.
Any objections? I did not have any.
Damascus Rose with Lavender & Chamomile–I liked the scent, but maybe you won’t. Personal preference.
Reminder from Badger: You must reapply this sunscreen at least every two hours, and use a water resistant sunscreen on the rest of your body if swimming or sweating.
