There is nothing not to love about Vacation sunscreen. It smells amazing. I would call it “musky tropical”. The only thing this product doesn’t have for me is the degree of protection I prefer. I like 50 and higher. That being said, the 30 did a great job protecting my skin.  It is broad spectrum which is a must. Never use a sunscreen that is not! I like that it is non aerosol, yet has a continuous spray. The spray works at all angels so no problem doing your back and legs etc. The feel is lightweight, with no stickyness or white cast. It is completely transparent and layers well. I like that it uses coconut oil, aloe, vitamin e, shea oil, and Banana extract. It’s a vegan brand you can feel good about using. Check out their instagram and website, it’s really cute. 

This incredible new skincare line Kadalys. Kadalys uses the power of Banana Bio actives as their power ingrediant in this amazing sustainable, natural, line. I love their Cleansing Pure Melt Gel In Oil. I have never tried an “oil cleanser” with this consistency. When you apply it to dry skin it feels less like an oil and more like a jellyish cleanser. When you rinse with water it quickly turns to a milky cleanser. My skin was left very soft, and it removed all the makeup I had on. There also wasn’t a film feeling left. So get Kadalys and feel fruity..

U Beauty skincare. I have been using their Resurfacing Compound. This product and brand have a cult following and I can see why. This serum is designed brighten, tighten, even out, and resurface skin. It is a clean beauty product and leaping bunny certified. The key to how this product works is the “Siren Capsules”. The Siren Capsules “deliver age-reversing ingredients to the most vulnerable areas of the skin while avoiding the exposure of harsh actives to areas that don’t need treatment. The result? Healthy skin maintains its integrity and realizes visible improvement, while dryness and irritation are avoided. By stopping free radicals in their tracks, SIREN Capsules prevent visible signs of damage and aging.”

to do your roots at home with Clairol’s Nice’N Easy Permanent Root Touch-Up. It’s a 10 minute at home root color kit. You get plastic gloves, the color, and a special brush to get all the roots. I chose the perfect color match my first time, no problem. I leave it on for 15 minutes, though the instructions say to do 10.  It completely covered my grays and was so easy to use. It’s perfect to use when you’re trying to extend the time between salon visits, or as you’re only coverage method. 

has never disappointed me. Tatcha continues to have some of the best products out there and the prettiest packaging. Lately I’ve been using their The Deep Cleanse Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and the best selling Violet-C Brightening Serum. The cleanser gently removes all makeup and dirt while minimizing excess oil and uncloging my pores. It is gel like and turns to a creamy foam. The Violet-C is 20% Vitamin C with 10% AHA’s. This is designed to brighten and strengthen skin for a more radiant look. The directions say to use it at night but I used it in the daytime after the Tatcha Essence and followed with moisturizer and sunblock. Check out Tatcha, they won’t let you down. 


hair is a few steps away with SexyHair’s Calm Sexy Hair line. The line is powered by CBD. My favorite is the Clear the Hair soothing pre-shampoo scalp treatment. It’s a quick and easy way to detox your scalp before you hop in the shower. You just massage it into your scalp and get a light lather going. It removes buildup and moisturizes the scalp.

I also like their Soothe Sesh soothing hair and hand cream. It’s a very lightweight cream that moisturizes hair, revitalizes a dull look, calms frizz and add shines. Rub in any extra product to your hands for some skin love. So keep your hair Sexy and Calm, and keep on….

in this month’s skincare and makeup finds. This month I’ve switched things up with some fabulous finds. I have been using Ren’s Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic. It has a delicious cucumber smell. It uses Lactic Acid and Salicin(BHA) to exfoliate, brighten, tighten and hydrate. It’s gentle enough to use every day.

In the morning I follow that with Lancome’s amazing Renergie HCF Triple Serum. It’s and anti aging serum with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, and Ferulic Acid. This serum feels luxurious. It’s designed to improve volume loss, reduce wrinkles, and brighten dark spots. It has a unique triple chamber packaging to combine ingredients in the perfect balance.

My makeup find is Kosas’s Air Brow lifting treatment gel. I use this in the daytime for a natural yet enhanced look. It adds volume with a soft flexible hold. Kosas is a clean beauty brand, and this gel is boosted with hair care actives to help brows grow and thicken. It has biodegradable plant based microfibers for fullness and volume. Panthenol Provitamin B5, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, Trehalose, and Hyaluronic Acid for Brow health. It’s the perfect not too dry not too wet brow product.

I recommend a backpack from Nomatic. They are extremely well made and keep to a very sleek style. I’ve never been a backpack person, but ever since I received mine it has become my travel go-to. It’s with me whether on the road for work or as a carry on for vacation. Nomatic’s bags come with a lifetime warranty. The basic pack I have has over 20 innovative features, is water resistant, has a laptop sleeve, sunglasses case, and 24 compartments for my organization obsession. My favorite feature is the side handle so I can hold it like a briefcase if I don’t want to wear it on my back. This bag is great as a gift, and a gift you may end up stealing, I mean borrowing…

Micro Essence! I have been using Estee Lauder’s Micro Essence Treatment Lotion with Bio Ferment. I use it in place of a toner in my daytime routine. It has what they call “Double barrier power”, using a “Postbiotic 12+ to work together with our 98.9% Bio-Active Lactobacillus Ferment” It is designed to optimize the skin’s barrier, lock in moisture, and minimize redness. I love adding this step for extra hydration and I believe it allows my serums to work better. It is made in Japan and paraben free. 

tell you what I’m into lately. I found an amazing makeup sponge that is super cheap. It’s the Real Techniques Miracle Airblend Mattifying Beauty Makeup Sponge. I use it for almost every step of my makeup. It gives a flawless foundation finish, and blends your bronzers, blushes, and highlighters beautifully. It has a flat edge, rounded sides, and precision tip to get all over your face. As with all these sponges they work better when you use them wet.

I’m puckering up with Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper. I’m not one to use lip plumping products but I was sent this for free, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. OMG this stuff actually works. My lips were immediatly plumped and left with beautiful shine too.

I’m getting Big Hair with Tresemme’s One Step 5 in 1 Texture spray. It makes my beach waves look dramatic, and it revives next day hair. I usually use aerosol texture sprays, this seems to have a stronger grip.

Try out my May finds, and let me know yours….
