6 SUMMER MUST-HAVES! #ad
I have today 6 SUMMER MUST-HAVES for you! Obviously sunscreen plays a huge role, but I also include a waterproof mascara and something to bronze that pale (sunscreen protected) face up! Don´t bake it- fake it! ;-)
1. Sunscreen for on-the-go!I love the Brush-On-Block ($32) and also that you can buy refills for only ($17). This is a self-dispensing brush with an easy twist open feature that includes a Mineral Sunscreen Powder. This powder can be worn over or under makeup and goes on clean and undetectable (it is tinted!) It also contains green tea, chamomile extract and honeysuckle to help soothe skin. Guaranteed no shine with this sunscreen!
2. A waterproof mascara!
A big must, not only if you go swimming, but also if you just hang out outside in the heat for smudge free eyes! I use currently the Essence I Love Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara ($4.99) and I tell you: don´t let this cheapy fool you! It gives me more volume, than any other high-end mascara ever did!
The trick is that the mascara wand is huuuuuge- so you better be careful when you apply this mascara to not smudge it on your lids. I´ll do it extra slow- but then I have these amazing full lashes- almost too good to be true. Yes, the lashes are sticking a little more together than I like- but still: my lashes look thick, thick, thick! YES, baby! And did I mention this one is only $4.99?
3. Sunscreen for your lips!
Don´t forget to always protect your lips too! I really like the Herpecin L lip balm ($4.44)! Not only is this lip balm very moisturizing, but it also contains SPF 30 to protect your lips as well as Dimethiconea, an ingredient that helps to reduce the pain and itching of cold sores and even helps to prevent cold sores from returning! No weird after-taste- it´s completely scent-free!
4. Sunscreen for your face!
The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunscreen ($8) is by far my most beloved (and most repurchased) facial sunscreen ever. It truly is non-greasy (cause it is oil free), fast-absorbing and water resistant and it provides an ultra-light, non-shiny finish. Perfect for everyday but also if you go swimming!
5. Bronzer for a fake-tan!
The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer Murumuru ($14.99) looks absolute natural and feels like silk- no glitter or orangey stuff- it just looks like a natural tan. This is an ultra-luxurious bronzer (without a hefty price tag) infused with Murumuru Butter, delivering a radiant Brazilian goddess glow! And it smells like coconut! Yummy!
6. Sunscreen for your body!
I really love the Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch ($9.99) This waterproof lotion provides premium protection against the sun's harmful rays. It applies easy and not greasy and is formulated with skin-nourishing antioxidants and exotic island botanicals for a sunny summer scent that smells like paradise!
Now let´s enjoy the summer safely and sun-protected- we are already in the 90s here in Hotlanta! Did summer arrive where you are at? ;-)
