The Best SPF’s for Summer and ALL Year-Round!

Now that summer is just around the corner and its beach and pool season, you’re going to want a STRONGER sunscreen to bring in your beach bag when you’re out in the sun! (Don’t forget to wear some SPF even in the off seasons it’s important!) Getting tan is my favorite part about summer, but don’t sacrifice your skin health for that summer glow! (I also highly recommend Spray tans or self tanners — which will be coming later this week on another post)

Here are some of my favorites:

Supergoop 

Supergoop is my absolute favorite. I’ve been using this one for 3 years and usually purchase it at Sephora. I love it because it’s not oily, there are no fragrances, and its water and sweat resistant! But make sure to reapply often if you’re going in the water.

Volition Beauty

It combines broad-spectrum SPF 50 with micro-fine pearlized powder and sodium hyaluronate resulting in a sophisticated, moisture-rich glow. Use daily with or without makeup for beautiful skin.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm 

Kiehl’s is definitely one of my go to brands. This lip balm is so hydrating and has been Kiehl’s staple product since 1969! You really cant go wrong with any of their products!

My favorite lip balms:

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator

Another Kiehl’s product I love is the glow formula skin hydrator. There’s no spf in this one, so use an spf and then put this glow on over top. This gives your skin a shimmery look, perfect for that summer glow. It’s great for being out and about if you’re going back and forth from the beach or pool and has that natural looking no makeup look.

Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture 

Peter Thomas Roth is another one of my favorites. This one is perfect for travelling, and i always keep one of these in my car or suitcase. It’s spf 30 and the best part is that it’s not oily. I have naturally oily skin so its perfect for me!

Coppertone clearly sheer whipped sunscreen 50

I love coppertone, and if you’re looking for an affordable yet quality sunscreen, this one’s for you. It’s Not greasy and the consistency is like a thick mousse. It comes out white but blends into your skin tone and absorbs really fast. The best part is that it not only protects your skin from the sun, but leaves it feeling soft and smooth! You can find this one at any local drug store, so it’s easy to find if you can’t pack it with you while you’re traveling.

Makeup Palettes You Need In Your Daily Routine.

I went through my FAVORITE makeup palettes I have and currently love and wanted to share which ones I believe are a MUST have. You know, the ones with face, eye and maybe even lip included. I’ve linked different ones from Sephora and Ulta, depending on where you shop. If you’re looking for a palette and would like a link that isn’t below, let me know!

I love finding a palette that has everything you need. Some have the basics and some have everything you’d need for a complete glam look. I personally love the ones that have the basics and are easy to travel with, whether that means small in size, has everything I need and or comes with a mirror.
