The Smart Stuff Sunscreen

Today at STYLEanthropy, let’s talk sunscreen. This post is very timely, because there’s currently an article circulating all over the interwebs showing some of the most popular commercial sunscreens that are actually doing more harm than good. Now, I won’t talk about those brands, but rather, a great alternative! I was recently introduced to the Smart Stuff mineral based sunscreen and also the Natural Insect Repellent, and I’m here to share with you my thoughts.



Now that it already feels like summer, with pools opening last Memorial Day weekend, you need to make sure you and your family are protected from the harmful rays of the sun. Well actually, we all need the protection from UVA and UVB rays year-round. But you need to be more diligent and cautious especially this time of the year when you’re almost always under the direct heat of the sun for prolonged periods of time – beach vacations, pool parties, outdoor activities, music festivals, etc. So it’s very important to wear sunscreen regularly.

And with that, another summer essential that you have to carry with you whenever you go outdoors is a natural insect repellent. Mosquito bites, among others is a NO-NO! And who knows what virus it brings with it? You need to protect your family.


When I had the opportunity to try the Smart Stuff skin care products, I jumped right in. Why? Let me give you a background on the brand.

Smart Stuff is a new skincare brand formulated to be as safe as they are effective. The brand was founded by New York City physicians, Doctors Lisa A. Liberatore, MD and Dimitri N. Kessaris, MD, loving parents of an autistic child. They tend to look at the world through a different lens than most, heavily scrutinizing every product they use, making sure they are safe on their child and their family.

As physicians, they understand a product’s effects on a molecular level. As parents, they simply won’t compromise when it comes to health and safety of their family and friends. So when the two became increasingly frustrated with the misleading ingredient labels and dangerous chemicals found in products in their home, they knew there had to be a better, safer alternative.

Thus, Smart Stuff was born based on one simple concept: well-designed products should work great day in and day out without compromising your health. The skin care line features moisture and antioxidant-rich formula that helps keep skin soft and smooth while fighting free radicals and defending against oxidative and environmental stress. Even better, it’s completely free of Free of Parabens, PABA, Petroleum, Phthalates, and Gluten.


Over the weekend, I was able to try these two products and I was pretty impressed with the performance. It was perfect timing because my friend was here and I set up some drinks outside the front yard after dinner. There were bugs and what not, so I got the Smart Stuff Insect Repellent and not only sprayed it on our legs but the Husband also sprayed it by the lamp where the bugs were gathering. Lo and behold, in just a few seconds, no bugs or mosquitoes were to be found. Amazing stuff, Smart Stuff (no pun intended).
