Happy Friday everyone!
I hope you all have had an amazing week! We’ve been enjoying our vacay in Sanibel and are so sad that we’re back to snowy MN today. Did you see that we got 5 inches of snow earlier in the week? So sad that we missed out on that fun time – LOL (#sarcasm).
Anyway! I’m keeping this post rather short today because I’m running on about 5 hours of sleep! I’ve rounded up a ton of the best beauty products for a beach vacation for today’s post. These are products I brought with me or wish I had brought with me on this trip! I’m detailing my top 3 picks below! You can also click on each image in the collage above to be taken to the product’s page or look above and click on the corresponding number to shop! Most of these items are under $40!
- Face Sunscreen: One of my first blog posts was dedicated to sunscreen because it is SO IMPORTANT to use on a daily basis but even more so during a beach vacation. This face sunscreen from Neutrogena is perfect for daily wear because it won’t break you out, is relatively non-greasy (as far as sunscreens go), and provides SPF 55. I also tested out this spray sunscreen that works as a makeup setting spray. It does set your makeup nicely; however, I found that it leaves a weird film on top of your skin if used without makeup. I will still repurchase because I haven’t found a sunscreen you can use over foundation/BB cream without messing it up but will be on the lookout for a different brand to test in the future! PS send me your recs if you have any!!
- BB Cream: Who wants to wear a full face of makeup while vacationing? Not I! This BB cream from Maybelline is my go-to in the summer and any beach vacay! It leaves a radiant glow to your face and is surprisingly full coverage while also providing SPF 30. I blend it in using my fingers. When I’m tan I use shade medium and when I’m pale I use the light shade. It’s a very neutral tone so works with most skin tones! And, it’s super affordable! There’s also one with benzoyl peroxide for those with sensitive skin. Although I am acne-prone, I have had no issues with the regular SPF one. However, if you use the one with benzoyl in it BE SURE to also use a sunscreen because benzoyl peroxide can make you more susceptible to sun burn!
- A Bright Lip Color: I’ve talked A TON on my Instagram stories this week about Sephora’s cream liquid lipstick line. I’ve owned a few lip colors from this line for over two years but kind of forgot about them to be honest. Not sure why I stopped using them because they’re so creamy, not drying, long lasting AND under $15! I’ve been using shade 05 (shimmery light pink) and shade 06 (matte brighter pink) for this trip for a perfect summer lip color!
These are my recommendations for the best beauty products for a beach vacation! I hope you found this post helpful!
Stay tuned for a huge outfit roundup of my Sanibel outfits on Monday!
