This season is truly all about fun in the sun: from pool days to festival days, cookouts and park days with champagne - the Summer is all about time outdoors with friends. As someone that spent a decade of my life working in beauty and wellness I'm constantly investigating what's new on the market. I receive more beauty box subscriptions each month (focusing on clean beauty is a must) than I probably need (just ask my partner who wonders on the regular what in the world I could possibly do with another bottle of oil). As a collection of holistic beauty essentials and some luxury level goodies too I've decided it's time to round up my Summer essentials.
Supergoop! SPF 50 SUNSCREEN GLOW STICK
So after way too many years in the sun I've recently had a little skin cancer scare. The Supergood Glow Stick is the first thing I think about applying before I leave the house. It'll give you that that vacation glow while still protecting your skin with SPF 50.
CARBON COCO ULTIMATE CARBON KIT
I've received this kit from Carbon Coco in the Spring. It took me a little time to get into it... Honestly I'd heard about using charcoal to whiten teeth but wasn't yet sold. However, the claim to remove stains without toxic chemicals sounded good so I decided to give it a whirl. After that first couple of uses I was all in. It naturally whitens, polishes, strengthens enamel and detoxifies without any chemicals and added nasties.
LOVE BEAUTY AND PLANET MURUMURU BUTTER & ROSE BODYWASH
Murumuru butter is an ingredient I already was fairly familiar with. It's sourced from trees native to the Amazon basin, harvested by locals and is super good for moisture retention. Couple that with one of my favorite essential oil aromas, rose, and this was a quick winner. A brand who has a mission of showing respect for our planet by being accountable for, and working to reduce the carbon footprint also makes this a serious favorite.
SOUL ADDICT HOLY CACAO HEMP BUTTER
Soul Addict was founded just within the last year by a former Oui We team member! Laura, who now resides in Western Asheville on her family farm (where she's growing hemp on the same land in which she grew up) has a mission of creating zen inducing CBD wellness products. As a new inductee into the CBD wellness club, I'm a big fan. Being real: I smoked plenty in my teen years but that was nothing like this raw, small batch & high vibrational dark chocolate. It's truly a perfect way to add a little bliss to the end of the day.
BEACH CLUB TRAVEL TEXTURE SPRAY
How could I not include a travel texture spray?! The second it's warm enough to even dream of beach days I start planning my transition into full mermaid vibes. This spray is step 1. This spray adds instant volume, beachy waves and shine. It's vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, color safe with UV protection, and formulated without sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, or petroleum.
So there we have it! That's what's topping my list so far this season my babes. Cheers to a happy Summer with glowing, healthy skin, hair and so much more!
