Now that Layla is getting older and even more active, we’ve been spending a lot more time in the summer sun! We head to the pool multiple times a week, and we’ve even made a couple of weekend beach trips! There are times when I’m pretty makeup-free, but when I want a very light summer-friendly routine, these are my beach beauty essentials! I use all of these products in my daily life as well, so they’re perfect for building a more full beauty routine too!
1. Olay Whips SPF 25
A few months ago, I shared my obsession with Olay Whip. So, when I saw they came out with a version with SPF 25, I was so pumped, y’all! The formula is just as good as the original. It feels so light to the touch and absorbs instantly! No more waiting for product to absorb before applying makeup! It has everything you could want: it’s an SPF, primer, and moisturizer all in one. The finish is velvety and shine-free. And it actually absorbs oils in your skin throughout the day to keep your skin looking dewy. Whether I’m wearing makeup or not, this step is a MUST for me! You can purchase online on Olay!
Behind a great moisturizer with SPF, mascara is my second holy grail, must-have beauty item! It’s rare that I leave the house without it. I love how it instantly gives me a more awake, refreshed appearance! I’m actually not a huge fan of waterproof versions because I find them impossible to remove. This one is my current fav.
3. Tinted Lip balm
To keep my lips hydrated, I love using a balm. But tinted ones are even better because they add just a smidge of color to my lips! As I’m getting older, I’ve found my lips have less of a pink tint. Tinted lip balm is the perfect solution! They come in natural shades to more punchy ones like this watermelon color I have!
4. Detangling brush
I don’t know how I lived without a good detangling brush in my life! My fav version is perfect for either wet or dry hair! This is actually the only brush I can use on my daughter’s curly, tangle-prone hair as well!
5. Invisibobble hair ties
I’ve tried a lot of hair ties over the years, but these coil ones are my fav. They don’t leave a permanent crease in my hair. (It normally falls out quickly if there even is one!) And they don’t damage my hair either. They’re perfect for either wet or dry hair, making them a definite beach beauty essential! I have the clear ones, but they also come in hair-colored versions if you’d like them to blend in!
