My 5 Favorite SPF Products For Summer (so far!)

As Summer is starting to roll in I’ve got my SPF arsenal ready for the sun. So far I’ve been relying on to protect my face from those UV rays.

I’m starting to lean towards more organic sun protectors this year too.


Coola Make-Up Setting Spray SPF 30 – This 70% certified organic spray feels very light weight on my face and works well with my make-up. I love having that extra protection in a spray. It’s also free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ – This has become my go-to, must-have skin product lately. It gives my skin a flawless finish and protects with SPF 50+. I also really love the citrus scent!

Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – I’ve been using Tarteguard on my hands and arms as well as my face. It’s Tarte’s first non-chemical sunscreen with active ingredients of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. It is free of Parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates and gluten.

Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 – I really want to pick up the full-sized bottle of this sunscreen which is 20% Zinc Oxide. It’s also Cruelty-Free and they even have a blacklist of ingredients not in their products.

Revlon Kiss Lip Balm In Juicy Peach – I am loving this SPF 20 lip balm. It comes in Tropical Coconut, Fresh Strawberry, Sweet Cherry, Crisp Apple and Berry Burst and Sweet Cherry is my favorite! It feels soft without being greasy or sticky and it tastes and smells so good.

March 2017 Birchbox Review

*Spoiler Alert! I’m showcasing the March 2017 Birchbox (this is my Birchbox referral code) today.

This month was curated by Reese Witherspoon in honor of Women’s History Month.


Here’s what I got in my March Birchbox…

Arrow Enhance Waterproof Eye Brightener – I feel like this was the most useful item in my box this month. It’s a pretty pink shade that I want to try. Full-Sized Price: $16

Bioderma Sébium H2O –  I’m not sure why I got an acne product this month but it smells nice. Full-Sized Price: $16.90

COOLA Mineral Face SPF 30 Unscented Matte Tint: This matte tint is probably the second nicest product but I wish it was a bit bigger in size. Full-Sized Price: $16.90

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle – For Oily Hair – I really wish Birchbox would stop sending me dry shampoo! I have a box full and I’m allergic to nettle. Full-Sized Price: $20

Number 4 Super Combo Prep & Protect – This is actually a nice product for hair and it has a nice scent.  Full-Sized Price: $32

I’m giving this month a 7/10. I think Birchbox could have done a bit better, especially with the Reese Witherspoon collaboration. I would have liked to see at least one high-end make-up product in the box.
