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.

Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 Review

The one thing that I love about beauty boxes is trying new products. I got the Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 in my May 2017 Allure Beauty Box and I am loving the Drunk Elephant brand now!

What’s to love?

I am always on the look-out for sunscreen that doesn’t have a lot of chemical and I’m pretty excited about the Drunk Elephant Umbra. This sunscreen is Cruelty-Free and they even have a blacklist of ingredients not in their products. This sunscreen is 20% Zinc Oxide which I love.

According to Drunk Elephant it has “potent antioxidants like astaxanthin, grape juice extract and sunflower shoot extract to help defend from free radicals and environmental aggressors. Infused with raspberry seed and marula oils“.

I am also loving the very light earthy smell and after using it for about a week I am thrilled with the results. It’s non-greasy and my skin feeling very smooth and hydrated while getting the sun protection.

I definitely want to pick up the full-sized tube for $34 and try some more Drunk Elephant products.
