Summertime for me means:
• random family road trips (like the one we took this Father’s Day Weekend to Asheville,NC to see the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. (Catch a glimpse of it’s beauty in my instastories on Instagram)
• finding ways to beat the heat
• enjoying more outdoor fun!
Today on the blog, SobeSavvy.com, I am sharing some Summer Beauty Essentials that will help you stay fresh, dry, protect you from harsh sun and make those bugs fly on by!
Since they are all under $15, you can save money and have more to spend on summertime fun!
I am by no means a natural blonde, but I do have a fun wig that I rock sometimes in the summer. You can get the ultimate beach waves with Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray. Infused with an ocean-fresh coconut fragrance, this sea-salt spray provides subtle volume and fullness for an effortless, matte-textured style. Suitable for all hair types and shades, including color-treated hair. Shake well before use and mist product thoroughly into towel dried or dry hair, combing through to distribute.
*Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin, $14
Yesterday, my family hit the hiking trails but not without applying Avon Skin-So-Soft Bug Guard! I definitely won’t leave home without this. Don’t let bugs get in the way of your summer fun. Protect your family when mosquitoes are most active with this fast-drying, dependable insect repellent. The non-greasy, DEET-free formulas provide long-lasting protection against deer ticks (that may transmit Lyme disease) and mosquitoes (that may transmit West Nile Virus). Available as Aerosol Spray, Pump Spray and travel-friendly Towelettes. Available at www.avon.com.
* Nubian Heritage’s 24-Hour Aluminum-Free Deodorants, $8.99
I love using Nubian Heritage’s line of skincare and bath products. They use organic, fair trade shea butter as well as other natutal ingredients. Their deodorants are available in seven of the brand’s best-selling all-natural fragrances, as a healthier alternative to feeling fresh and smelling great! Available at The Vitamin Shoppe and online at vitamineshoppe.com.
* Hotheads’ Mini G Hairbrush, $9.38
Good things really do come in small packages! The Mini G conveniently fits in your handbag, gym bag or travel bag. Use it with your favorite dry shampoo to refresh tired locks. It’s the perfect little brush to distribute your leave-in products before heading out into the sun. Great for detangling after a swim, the Mini G also helps remove sand debris from the scalp and hair. Finishing your day at the beach using the Mini G will reduce frizz and help create the perfect ponytail. Available at HotheadsHairbrush.com.
* Ola Tropical Apothecary Body Mist, $10
The secret ingredient in Ola Tropical Apothecary’s Deep Sea Body Mist is…the water. Found at 3000’ below the ocean surface off the Kona Coast, each Body Mist contains over 90 trace minerals, and is high in calcium and magnesium. A few simple spritzs to hair, face and skin instantly hydrates and moisturizes. It comes in 2 ounce sizes and available at HawaiianBodyProducts.com.
I packed some of these products in my travel bag along with a few of my everyday beauty essentials. Perhaps these products will make it into your suitcase to kick off Summer 2018!
