Just pulled in from a week in Lake Powell and thought it would be the perfect time to share with you the three staples that never leave my pool bag! I want to note: I hate sunscreen and these are my baaaaaaaaaabes 😍
FROM Left to Right: I have always loathed lip sunscreens because they leave my lips white and chalky, but I don’t have time for sunburned lips soooooo I have always powered through the pain, ha! This tinted lipbalm sunscreen from Pacifica I snagged from Target on a whim as been LIIIIIIIFFFFE though!! SPF 30 and a flattering nude tint are just what I needed at the lake!
I have used and sworn by this powder sunscreen from ColorScience for YEARS now. You guys, DO NOT let the price tag deter you. I can confidently say that this is the best $57 dollars I spend in the entire year! One tube has actually lasted me two years (yikes!) and it is my go-to for the pool bag. Since it is a powder I can throw this on OVER my full face of makeup and reapply as I need without disturbing the rest of my makeup. It absorbs oil/water too so that even right after getting out of the water I can reapply and feel fresh and protected. I LOVE using this in my part so that I don’t have to get greasy sunscreen all over my hair and I can keep from getting sunburned on my poor scalp!! Since it’s all mineral as well it’s safe to use on your kids in a bind. I CANNOT express how deep my love is for this product, you guys, it’s deeeeeeep!
Since I hate sunscreen I started on a mission to find one that had good ingredients, but didn’t leave my skin feeling dehydrated and chalky – Enter Missha Essence Sun Milk!! It’s just $17 for 2oz and is the last step in my skincare everyday. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and I am so impressed by how incredible my skin feels after using it and how well it works.
Stay safe in the sun my friends and take care of your precious face!
