01 Jul BEACH DAY & SUN BUM
Beach days are always fun, especially when the weather cooperates. With this heat wave upon us, we need to be extra careful and protect our skin from the sun.
Like I have mentioned to you before, I am always on the hunt for the best sun lotion. I do like summer, but I hate the sun lotion aspect of summer. Since my skin is so fair and I burn very easily, I always need to make sure I am 100% protected from the sun. Everyone, even if your skin isn’t as fair as mine, should wear sun lotion because the UV rays can cause cancer. I hate it when the sun lotion is super sticky or the lotion makes me look white as a ghost. With that being said, I’m always experimenting with different brands of sun lotion, because I have yet to find the perfect one that I’m 100% happy with. Obviously there is no such thing as 100% , but I’m looking for a sun lotion that checks most of my points off my checklist.
This time around I decided to give Sun Bum a try. Sun Bum is paraben free, oxybenzone free, hypoallergenic, cruelty free, vegan, gluten free, and is safe for the coral reefs, just to name a few benefits of this sun lotion. The lotion absorbs into the skin fairly quickly and it feels more like a regular lotion than a sticky sun lotion, which I love. Additionally it doesn’t make me look more pasty than I already am 😀 I also love that the sun lotion smells so good, and the sun lip balm comes in different flavors. I tried the Coconut one, it tasted like Pina Colada, so good! The most important part is, I reapplied the sun lotion every 2 hours, and I did not get burned 🙂
About the look – I am absolutely in love with this linen dress and the straw bag. These two are definitely my staples for this summer. I recently posted a straw bags shopping inspo guide (here) and linked some great affordable options all under $130. I got this straw bag at Target for only $34.99 which is an amazing find for these bags! They are a great companion to bring to the beach/the pool or to a BBQ.
Is there a sun lotion that is your absolute favorite? I would love to hear your opinion about what sun lotion you like or absolutely hate. Bisous, Joëlle
