Sum Sum Summatime Essentials

Our first beach trip is coming up in a couple weeks and I am making sure we have everything we need to have a wonderful time! This is actually our first beach trip as just a family of four. So I’m not going to be able to rely on my Mom or MIL with much more mothering experience then me. 2016-04-21 02.46.52 1.jpgHere goes nothing!

These are just a few of our necessities! They say “the bigger the better” and that definitely stands true for hats in the sun. Baseball caps typically cover middle of face leaving chin, jaw, ears, and neck vulnerable. I picked up this hat for $5 at Target. I usually  have a hard time finding hats because I have a larger head than normal. But this works.

Sunless Tanner


So I have a saying and it’s “if you can’t tone it, tan it” well I am currently in the process of toning it but it has been taking a bit longer than expected so I am going to have to do quite a bit of tanning.  And obviously, I’m no longer a teenager who thinks Im invincible so sunless tanning it is for me. I’m sure you have seen before but Rodan+Fields Sunless Tanner wins award after award and always sells out. So I have stocked up and I will NOT be headed to the beach without it. Not to mention it can go on your face with no problems.


 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30


 If you have never tried Essentials SPF you must. The smell is to die for! It goes on beautifully never feeling greasy. My kids ask for it before heading out. In addition to my beach bag, this stays in my gym bag and purse. You never know when you will be outside a little longer than normal and my kids are fair so it hits them quick!

Soothe Mineral Sunscreen

I like to use a mineral-based sunscreen on my face so this one wins every time. It doesn’t leave a white film and leaves my skin feeling fab.

Broad spectrum SPF 30 contains only mineral-based sunscreen ingredients to protect skin without compromising skin’s delicate moisture barrier. This lightweight formula calms, soothes and minimizes the appearance of visible redness.

ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25

These guys are another thing I keep EVERYWHERE. My little one gets fever blisters from the sun so keeping her lips protected is a m640x394xRF-SPF-25-Lip-Shield-1024x631_jpg_pagespeed_ic_mLSCMMyvqD.jpgust. If you have ever dealt with kids and fever blisters you know why!

Helps me defend my lips against the aging effects of the sun while treating them to moisturizing lipid molecules and peptides to help boost collagen production and smooth lip texture. Blocks harmful UVA rays with SHIELDrf, our exclusive complex of avobenzone, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, while hydrating and moisturizing lips with shea butter, avocado and sunflower seed oil. This anti-aging lip balm also contains dimethicone to protect lips’ delicate moisture barrier and antioxidant vitamins A, C and E to defend against free radicals, leaving you with soft, smooth, healthy-looking lips

Takes puffiness out of your skin while delivering peptides for anti aging. I actually freeze them individually in a ziplock bag and then throw it in cooler, at end of day take it out and instantly feel refreshed and confident i won’t scare small children.
