What's in my Beach Bag? Sun Bum SPF 30!

I definitely consider myself a 'Sun Bum' in the Michigan Spring/Summer time. My coworker always teases me because whenever the sun is out I can always be found working on our office deck. But I'm also very cautious to make sure I'm fully protected by sunscreen when outside.

Just the name of this sun protection line had me hooked. I received a sample of Sun Bum SPF 30 Continuous Spray and the lip balms to try out. I tried them out this past weekend while out on the lake and they kept both me and husband burn free! They are a new essential for my weekend beach bag.

The Continuous Spray sunscreen provided great coverage and made for easy application. I could even get my back covered without help! Sun Bum SPF 30 is water proof and sweat proof, paraben free, oil free and hypoallergenic. To top it off, it smells like the beach, coconut and sand. Retails for $15.99 and can be purchased online and at select retailers.

The lip balms are great too. Normally I'm not a fan of wax based lip balms, but this one goes on smooth and doesn't dry out lips or have a thick waxy feeling to it. It's super moisturizing! All of their fun flavors (my favorite so far is Banana) contain cocoa butter, and are PABA free. Other tasty flavors include Mango, Key Lime, Coconut, Pint Guava and Pomegranate. Sun Bum lip balms are $3.99 a piece and can be purchased online. These are steal for how moisturizing and tasty they are, with the added benefit of SPF.

Do you wear sunscreen? I hope everyone comments 'yes' below! Take my advice and wear your sunscreen...you'll thank me later!

Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen review


Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen-Broad Spectrum 30 PA+++ is not only helping to prevent future sun and free radical damage, but is also Oil-free which many of us look for in a sunscreen. I have used so many different oil-free sunscreens and always end up with breakouts the next day. Not this product! However; like all sunscreens...You really need to apply them throughout the day. This is VERY important! Because Murad Oil-Free sunscreen is so light-weight, you are able to do so without feeling as if you have just painted your face. Added bonus: it smells really good!

What's in my Beach Bag? - Jason Naturals SPF

Jason Family Naturals Sunblock SPF 45 kept me burn free this past weekend! I had no idea this company has been around since 1959. They have been a pioneer in the 'naturals' beauty department.

This non-greasy, water-resistant sunscreen smells so good. It's not overpowering, just a very fresh 'summery-beachy' smell. The Family Natural Sunblock protects skin from burn, and reduces harmful free radical damage caused by the sun's ultra-violet rays. It's enriched with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Green tea extract. This is probably why it felt a little moisturizing as well.

My husband and I both used this and were out all day on Memorial Day. We reapplied probably 2-3x throughout the day and came away with no red. If you are in to organic and natural products, this is a good product to use when you're out in the sun. It retails for $11.95

You can find Jason Natural Products at Whole Foods and other health and natural food stores in the US and Canada, or by visiting www.jason-natural.com.

What's in my Beach Bag? Sunscreen!

This post is majorly delayed...should have been sent out last Monday. Better late than never...here it is:

Finally - Nice weather in Michigan this past weekend! Spent some time on the lake and loaded up my beach bag!

First things first, sunscreen. You can wear beach cover ups and long linen pants, but you can't walk around with a bag on your head. I always wear a higher SPF on my face since it sees the most sun (I'm not a fan of hats!). Here is what Mike and I wore on our faces all weekend:


CellCeuticals Photo Defense SPF 55+
I used this while I was in Vegas and it was a scorching 90+ degrees out. I only used it on my face and didn't burn at all while out in the sun by the pool all day. PhotoDefense is meant to protect skin against daily UVA and UVB sun exposure while simultaneously combating premature skin aging and moisturizing. This didn't turn my face white, went on smooth, absorbed quickly, and didn't break me out!
$45

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid
I love love love La Roche-Posay sunscreen. They don't mess around with their products. It's designed for normal to combination skin, super light and has a matte finish. This one didn't break me out either.

This fluid provides SPF 60 and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with breakthrough Cell-Ox Shield, to protect skin. Other benefits and pluses: High UVA protection, water-resistant, helps protect skin from sun damage, fragrance free, non-comedogenic and tested on sensitive skin.
$27.90

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
Quick warning: this is not to be used alone for sunblock for your face. I love this stuff, but it's not the only lotion I use when out in the sun all day. This is my DAILY moisturizer and it is divine. It gives my skin a dewy look, but without making me look or feel greasy. It moisturizes really well and doesn't break me out. I can use it by itself with just some blush or a bronzer and don't feel the need for foundation. I love using it alone, I feel like I'm giving my skin some room to breath!

My dermatologist turned me on to Aveeno and I use it for body lotion (Positively Smooth smells great!), facial lotion and face wash (Ultra Calming Cleanser).
