A Peek Inside My Beach Bag!

Thursday, June 29, 2017

As i get ready to pack for my upcoming vacation, I've started to gather a few products that i know I'll need to toss in my beach bag so i figured, why not share it with my beauty BFF's... YOU!  These are just a few of the products I'm currently loving right now and i hope you do too!

First, I'm going to chat about a couple of products I've mentioned before (obviously i really love them)!  Pacifica's Underarm Deodorant Wipes and Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes are seriously amazing!  Keeping the underarm wipes in your beach bag is so smart because it's a wonderful way to refresh on a scorching hot day!  I also love to dab these along the hairline to keep those sweat beads away!  The cleansing wipes are delicious and super convenient, especially when you have kids!  I love keeping them in my beach bag to keep our hands nice and clean after meals! They are also quite refreshing and feel delicious on my skin! Bonus?  They smell incredible... i love anything that smells like coconut!

MD Solar Sciences Mineral Moisture Defense Body Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is incredibly gentle on the skin without skimping on effectiveness!  Wow! It's cruelty free and water resistant for up to 80 minutes which is so important to me!  When I'm on a beach vacation, i always look for water resistant products because there is nothing that i love more than swimming!  This product is definitely my current go-to to protect my body from the sun's harmful rays!

COOLA is a brand i've trusted for quite some time now!  I recently discovered the Dawn Patrol Classic Makeup Primer SPF 30 i fell madly in love! First, i feels wonderful on my skin.  Second, it allows my makeup to go on beautifully!  Third, it has SPF 30 so i know that my skin is protected. Fourth, it's super effective in ensuring that my makeup stays put all day!  Seriously, it's such a gem! Why do i need it for a beach day you ask?  Well, that's where the COOLA Mineral Sport Sunscreen Stick comes in.  Basically, i begin by applying the primer and follow it with this Mineral Tint Stick. What i love most about this product is that it doesn't leave a white casting over my skin.  The tint keeps my skin looking natural which i love.  This product has an SPF 50 so i know that i'm covered when it comes to sun protection.

I'm obsessed with Colore Science Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen Brush Broad Spectrum SPF 50!  I cannot stress enough that everyone, EVERYONE needs to own this!  It's small enough that you can toss in your everyday bag but is incredibly powerful and super easy to use!  I've chatted about this product before but felt as though i needed to mention it again because it's one of those products that is so effective and so easy that i can't help but want to share!  My husband shaves his head, so protecting it from the sun is crucial.  I always swipe this on for him to ensure that he's always protected.  I use it on myself all the time too.  Just a few swipes anywhere that needs protection will keep you safe and for that I'm so grateful!  I'm packing two of these babies for vacation!

Last but certainly not least, wear a hat!  Seriously, a good hat and sunnies is essential when spending your days frolicking in the sun!  There are so many fun options but I'm currently loving this hat and these sunnies!

I hope you find this post helpful!  Whatever products work for you, remember to never ever skip your sun protection!  Enjoy this summer safely!  Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
