To say I’m Obsessed with Vacation Sunscreen is an understatement. Their latest invention, Classic Whip SPF 30 Sunscreen Mousse is my favorite of the line. It is also my favorite body sunscreen I’ve ever tried. It is SPF 30 Broad Spectrum, water resistant up to 80 minutes, and fun. I have turned so many people on to this line and this particular product. Both Men and Women have commented on how amazing the smell is. I even have two friends that went and bought the Vacation Perfume after using this. It is unbelievably lightweight, and quickly melts into skin. I think all sunscreen should now come in a whip can. On top of SPF there is also Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Banana Extract, Shea Oil, and Vitamin E. Remember a little goes a long way. Its so fun to use, it’s easy to over spray. I’m praying to the Vacation Gods that they come out with an SPF 50 in this.

I love Antedotum’s Essential Daily Sunscreen. This hydrating facial sunscreen surpassed all expectations. It has broad spectrum SPF 30 UVA UVB and HEV protection. It is loaded with antioxidants to aid in skin’s look and feel. It goes perfect under makeup. It has a light color to it that blended perfectly with my skin. It is also fragrance free and reef safe. The hero ingredient they use is Aspen Bark Complex, which conditions and protects. The packaging is gorgeous enough to leave out on your vanity. As a Beauty Editor I am constantly sent free product. I have plenty of sunscreens in my beauty closet, however when this runs out I will definitely be repurchasing it. It is incredibly lightweight, and doesn’t feel like it clogs pores.

skin safe with Versed Guards Up Daily Mineral Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 35 protection. They really took care of every sunblock problem with this product. It is lightweight and absorbs fast. There is no white-cast at all. It has a peach tint to it, which almost gives a filtered look to the skin. The texture is silky and works great under makeup. I often forget I have it on because it is so comfortable. This sunscreen has UVA,UVB and blue light protection. It is recommended for all skin types including those that are acne prone. It has antioxidants, sea fennel and mooring seed extract. I feel the brand really used their skincare knowledge to give customers exactly what they want in a face sunscreen.

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. 

Skinbetter’s AlphaRet Clearing Serum is a retinoid based serum that doesn’t mess around. It is designed for oilier, blemish prone skin. AlphaRet is a patented technology that combines retinoid and an AHA. It will improve the overall clarity, tone and texture. It’s made with salicylic acid, BHA’s, and hydrating & soothing ingrediants. 

Tatcha’s The Essence Skincare Boosting Treatment wil soften and plump your skin. It uses a trio of fermented Japanese superfoods. I love every product from this line, and this product does not disappoint. It is designed to boost the effects of your skincare while resurfacing and hydrating the skin. 


Australian Gold’s Plant Based Lotion & Sunscreen with SPF 50 is my favorite new sunblock. It smells amazing. It is part of their new Plant Based line, and formulated with Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil. 


Givenchy’s Le Rouge Universal Hydrating Lip Balm is my go to balm for under my lipstick or gloss. It’s a clear moisturizing balm that is designed to hydrate up to 24hrs. It has hyaluronic acid and jojoba seed extract to soothe and nourish lips all day. 

I’m loving Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore moisturizer. It is designed to restore the skin’s external barrier and support self repair. I found it to be majorly nourishing and hydrating. It will help to even out and improve overall radiance. It’s lightweight and fast absorbing.

I’m protecting my body at the beach with Neutrogena’s Invisible Daily Defense Lotion SPF 60+. I love the texture and smell of this sunscreen. It’s hydrating and formulated with antioxidants. It is quick drying and lightweight.

My new serum is StriVectin’s Super C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum. I love the concept of a Vitamin C and a Retinol in one product. This lightweight serum brightens and firms skin, while smoothing fine lines and improving texture. It’s not sticky at all, and absorbs fast. It is perfect for layering under a moisturizer and makeup.

new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Pureology. It’s their Strength Cure Superfood Treatment. It’s a fortifying mask designed to strengthen and smooth split ends while preventing further damage. It uses Olive Oil, Goji Berry, and their signature aromatherapy blend. I’ve never had a bad experience with Purology and this mask does not disappoint.

For my skin I’m using Peach & Lilly’s Wild Dew Treatment Essence. This hydrating post cleansing step will improve skin’s radiance while fighting acne. It sinks deep into skin fast, to leave your face ready to drink up your next step. It contains lotus extract, niacinamide, yeast ferment, adenosine, bamboo extract, and radish leaf. It is refreshing and effective.

My latest makeup additon is Essence’s Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I love how small the brush is small to get the perfect application. It has tiny fibers to fill in caps and create fuller more tamed defined brows.

hydrate, protect, and prime with Lancome’s new UV Expert Sunscreen Aquagel Defense spf 50 Priming Moisturizer. I love this product. It has become my go-to daytime moisturizer. It is an oil free, lightweight, deeply hydrating moisturizer. No need to layer extra sunblock, because this has you covered with spf 50. Your skin is left with a matte base that acts as a perfect primer. I got mine in an influenster box, and I’m so glad I did. This is definitely something I will purchase again. It is made with Vitamin E, Moringa and Edelweiss. The aquagel texture turns into a water like, blendable gel that absorbs quickly. So get with this Lancome do it all, and do a little less this summer….
