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.

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.


Body moisturizer is so last year. That’s why I’ve been using B. Fresh’s line of body serums. These are perfect for the summer because they are lightweight and sink into your skin fast. I live in Miami so I’ll definitely be using them year round. The range covers the needs of hydration, exfoliation, brightening, and firming. The line is clean and cruelty free. I love how soft my skin feels with this product. No grease, just smooth skin.

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. 

I’m rolling into this month with a bunch of new finds. First is the Honey Banana sheet mask from TWOTSP. This Korean sheet mask uses Manuka Honey and Bananas to reduce bacterial growth and fight signs of aging. It hydrates, brightens, and balances. 


At night I’m caring for my under eye skin with Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix. It reduces the look of fine lines and leaves skin firmer and more nourished. I love that it’s lightweight yet effective.

I’m caring for my hair with Loreal’s new Everpure Sulfate Free Glossing pH balanced Shampoo and Conditioner. It leaves hair silky and shiny. The line is anti fade and UV filters to be gentle on color treated hair.

I love going over my dry hair with a few drops of Typology’s Repairing Hair Oil with Acai 5% + Hibiscus. It is a lightweight dry oil that controls and softens hair. This is the finishing touch your hair needs.

On to the body, I love Soap and Glory’s Magnificoco Drop In The Lotion Body Lotion. I love the smell and it absorbs quickly.

Lastly I’m using Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri X Peeps Collection in White. It dries so fast and only needs one coat.

Stay tuned for what I get into this April…

so I’ve upped my serum game. I am currently using Nani Pua’s 1960 Ethnobotanical Face Serum. This luxury botanical oil blend is lightweight yet insanely moisturizing. It brightens and hydrates with “15 vital rare ingredients” that address a broad range of skin conditions. Ethnobotany is the study of a region’s plants and their practical uses through the traditional knowledge of local culture and people. Head to their website to review each ingredient used and why they chose it. So get with Nani Pua and don’t let winter take the glow out of your skin.

with August & Monroe’s Calm Cream. August & Monroe was created by a makeup artist who personally suffers from sensitive, acned skin. This moisturizer is soothing and hydrating. The lightweight gel texture quickly absorbs and goes great under makeup. I recommend checking out the before & after pics on their website. I love the packaging. The bottle keeps product air locked and is refillable. The cream is fragrance free, paraben free, clean, vegan, and cruelty free. So get with August & Monroe and give your skin some zen….

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. 

Shine lip gloss with Patricia de Leon’s Sexy Shine Lip Gloss. I have it in Angel. It is the best feeling lipgloss I have ever used. It’s super light, and extremely silky. There is zero stickiness, or oiliness. I don’t feel the need to constantly reapply.  The line is vegan and cruelty free. So pucker up to PDL Cosmetics, and kiss the sticky, heavy, glosses goodbye…

is now a good thing when it comes to skincare. Thanks to Typology and their innovative no b.s. all results approach. The line is sold exclusively online, direct to consumers, in order to offer the highest quality at the best price. The line is like a chic french apothecary meets the Ordinary….but better. “Our philosophy is not to add anything to our products to make them stand out; instead we pare them back and distil each formula down to the most-essential, natural active ingredients.” The line is natural and sourced from sustainable farms using gentle extraction techniques. I will touch on a few of my faves from the line, but I strongly suggest checking out all they have to offer on their site. The 7 Ingredient Micellar Water quickly removes makeup and grime. I use the Hydrolate Organic Orange Blossom, which is a gentle essence that revives tired skin. Next I use the Antioxidant Serum 3% Ferulic Acid + 3% Resveratrol, to firm skin and fight aging. I wait a minute or two and follow with the Radiance Serum 11% Vitamin C, to increase radiance. One of my favorite’s in the line is the Eye Serum 5% Caffeine + 5% Niacinamide. It’s a circulation boosting eye serum that fights dark circles. It’s extremely lightweight and absorbs instantly. I’m somewhat obsessed with the Radiance Night Serum Botanical Blend with White Rose. It is an overnight Oil that boosts radiance and regenerates skin while you sleep. It feels ultra luxurious. It is a must add to cart. The bottles are beautiful and look great out on the counter. So say oui’ to Typology, and let this French brand be your new crush…
