Time to share some of my top picks in natural beauty for spring break! Some have spring break in the next couple weeks, others have it in a month. Either way, it’s time for my top picks! Each year I find some new items that I can’t wait to share with you for Spring Break. Whether it’s a sunscreen, new lip color or cute beach bag.
This year is no different, I was so excited to finally share all my top picks! Something for everyone. Natural beauty just keeps getting better and better.
Maya Chia Highlight of The Day-
Who doesn’t want a little glow on vacation? These little bottles are filled with liquid radiance- I know sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. It comes in several shades. You really can’t go wrong with any of them. You apply it really however you want! I love applying mine on my upper cheek bone, bridge of my nose, in the upper middle section of my brows, cupid’s bow, and middle of chin. All the normal places you would use a traditional highlighter. You can even apply it on the inner corners of your eyes to wake them up. You can apply it over your foundation or mix it with your foundation or just where it by itself. I’ve done them all, and love the effect it gives. You literally look like your lit from within. As a mom, these have been serious game changers! I look more awake and they last. I can’t wait to mix them in my body oil in the summer for an all over body glow! Get one here- you will look like your glowing!
Beautycounter Lip Sheers-
So this isn’t new if you follow me. I’m obsessed with these little guys. They offer moisture but aren’t as glossy as a lip gloss. The color is subtle and pretty. Great for beach and pool days when you want something understated, yet still want to look polished. I love the color Petal. The perfect pale pink. There’s no redness in it. I can’t stop wearing it! Goes with everything. I also love Poppy, and Rose. Can’t wait to try more! Check out all the colors here!
All Good Sunscreen-
This sunscreen has been a staple the last two years. Everything about it, from ease of application to, great sun protection- it checks all the boxes and then some. Plus, the ingredients are clean! Often it’s easy to hit two of the boxes but not all of them. Not with All Good sunscreen! Not only is it organic, but non-gmo, gluten free, vegan and coral reef friendly. It uses the mineral zinc oxide to block the suns rays. It’s also water and sweat resistant up to 80 min. too. But the real kicker- it comes in a clean spray! Yes, you heard me right. There is a spray sunscreen that is clean. Instead of using toxic chemicals for the propellant like most spray sunscreens they use a combination of jojoba and nitrogen(something that is already in the atmosphere). The ease of use with a spray can’t be beat- it’s amazing! The sprays come in a kid’s version that has an spf of 30 and adult version with spf 30. I’ve used them both and can say they work so well. They also carry sunscreen in tubes, in butter sticks with spf 50, in tins with spf 50, in lip balm form and even in large family sizes. If you’ve been searching for a clean, effective sunscreen- this is it. It takes the cake in every area. Snag some here!
Beautycounter Hydrating Body Lotion in Citrus Mimosa-
This body lotion smells SO good! I also love that it comes in a tube. So easy for travel. It’s big enough for my whole family too, which I love. On trips I find everyone has drier skin from the pool or ocean and just being out in the sun. This lotion solves dry skin quick. Plus, it smells like the tropics! Safe for pregnancy too. Snag it here!
Primally Pure Deodorant-
When temps get warmer, we all want to still feel fresh when it comes to our underarms. Primally Pure Charcoal deodorant is seriously the bomb.com when it comes to keeping you smelling fresh all day long! Even my hubs can attest to it’s greatness. We both can’t stop using it. We don’t experience any irritation either. Trust me, it’s SO good! Get it here!
Aila Nail Polish-
Hands down my favorite nail polish in clean beauty! It lasts longer than any nail polish, is free of the nasties, and the shades are just so darn pretty. Plus, their Better Than Gel Top Coat is the best top coat in clean beauty. It rates a 1 on the EWG and literally makes your polish last like a gel polish. It’s the real deal. I’m crushing on the nail polish colors in California Love, Tiddlywink Tea, and Roze. My tried and true faves are Bodega, Room 212, and Namaste. Get your tootsies pretty for the sun!
Beautycounter Rejuvenating Toner Pads-
I’ve been using these for a month and I can’t stop. I haven’t found anything like them in natural beauty. They are a toner pad. So it’s a cotton pad that already has the toning elixir on it. You just take a pad and wipe it all over your fave. It Instantly refreshes your skin. I love that I can see how clean my skin actually is! It shows if I’m really cleansing my skin well enough. Plus, these are perfect in warm weather when we tend to get a little sweaty. I love having these on hand to wipe away the sweat quick so it doesn’t just sit on my skin and cause…you know breakouts. Trust me, you’ll love them! Get them here!
Luna Rose and Honey Mask-
After a day at the beach or the pool, sometimes you need a little skincare love. I love this mask! It makes my skin glow in minutes- no joke! It apply it all over in the morning and then grab my toothbrush and then rinse off once I’m done brushing my teeth. It feels so hydrating and soothing to the skin. It gives a slight exfoliation too with herbal grains. The raw honey in this mask draws moisture to the skin while soaking up all the excess oils at the same time. What I love is that this mask can be used daily as a cleanser or as a mask a couple times a week. It really lives up to it’s name: Glowing Mask. I promise you won’t be disappointed! I can’t get enough of this decadent skin treat! Oh and did I mention it’s only $30? Get your mask here! Use coupon code: GURLGONEGREEN for 20% off!
Beautycounter Facial Wipes-
Ok, so when you’re on vacation you want to bring as little as possible right? And have things be a little easier. Well then you need these makeup removing wipes! These are in a league of their own. I kept hearing people say to try the wipes and so of course I did! These wipes have the perfect moisture amount. I had yet to find a green beauty wipe that worked so well. They were either to dry or not soft enough. Beautycounter hit all the marks on these wipes. They are soft, moist and even biodegradable. If you’re a wipe gal you need these! Perfect for travel too. You could even cut them in half to make them last longer. Get them here!
I mean my body hasn’t seen the sun in several months, so a fake tan is definitely needed! ThankfullI love that this product isn’t a lotion or cream but just like a toner for the skin. Sometimes creams can be greasy and just too much for the face. The Face Tan water gives you no greasiness and feels so light on the skin. I applied this twice a week for an all over tan glow. I would make sure to cleanse and exfoliate my skin beforehand and then apply the self tanner to dry skin. I used a cotton round to apply it and just made sure to rinse them well afterwards to ensure I didn’t have any leftover residue. I applied to my face and decolletage. I also love their tan body lotion! Get the Face Tan Water here!
Beautycounter Dew Skin-
This is perfect for warmer weather! It has an SPF 20 and blends so well into the skin, you would hardly notice you’re wearing much. If you want really minimal coverage and more of a tinted moisturizer feel and look, then Dew Skin is for you. It blends so well into the skin, you would hardly notice you’re wearing much. Yet it creates such an even canvas for your skin. It’s super hydrating too! I wear the color No. 2. I love easy when I’m on vacation, and Dew Skin is just that! Get it here!
Innersense Leave In Conditioner and Salt Spray-
Hair is important and I can’t not share my favorites for sunnier weather! First, I love Innersense Leave In Conditioner. It literally is necessary for beach and pool days. I spray it in my hair and my girls hair to protect it from the pool water. If your hair is already wet, then it’s not going to soak up the chlorine. No one wants green hair- especially if you’re blonde! I also love it, post beach days for when hair needs to be detangled. Say goodbye to knots and tangles- this is your new best friend mama!
I also love Innersense Salt Spray, it’s their newest product and I can’t get enough. A lot of texture or salt sprays can weigh the hair down a bit. Not this one. It gives my hair some decent hold, almost like a subtle hair spray, and then it adds texture. Not heavy texture that gets super crunchy. This is effortless texture that makes it feel like your hair just did it on it’s own. I love spraying it in my hair to break up my curls after I curl my hair. It gives my hair a tousled look. I’m excited to travel because I don’t even think I would bring a hair spray- just this! It offers enough hold. This would work great for those with curly hair too as it would help to liven up your natural curls. SO excited to have this in the summer months! Get your I Create Waves Texture Spray here!
