Summer Essentials

Happy Wednesday, Loves! Anyone who knows me knows that I love summer! It is the perfect time to go on adventures, visit the beach, enjoy a scenic nature walk, have a friendly BBQ, and so many more fun activities! Today on the blog, I will be sharing with you some of my on-the-go essentials for a summer day out and the products I've been loving lately!

Protecting your skin from the sun is very important! When you are out of the house for long periods of time on your summer adventures, the coat of sunscreen you put on that morning is long gone and you need to continuously re-apply. That is why I never leave for the house without sunscreen in my bag. Lately, I've been love, love, LOVING the Sun Bum Continuous Spray Sunscreen. It feels very light weight, it doesn't leave my skin with that greasy/sticky sunscreen feeling, and it smells like a tropical peach and coconut cocktail. What screams summer more than this sunscreen, am I right? It is kind of pricey compared to similar brands, but I think it is worth every dollar because it is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, Paraben/PABA/Oil Free, water resistant up to 80 minutes, won't clog your pores and includes hydrating vitamin E!

It is just as important to protect your face, as it is to protect your body, from the sun. Because of this, I also carry around a separate sunscreen specifically for my face. One of my all time favorite products that I have been using for years is the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen. I love this sunscreen because it never makes my face feel oily. I have pretty oily skin, and I really can do without extra oil being added onto my face. It is also non-comedigenic, oil-free, ultra-light, quick absorbing and sponsored by the Canadian Cancer Association.

Having deodorant on at all times during the summer is very important. With all the heat and sweat, you still want to maintain smelling and feeling fresh. I was recently sent the Secret Fresh Deodorant Invisible Solid in the scent Cool Waterlily for free from BzzAgent to test and review. Even though that campaign is long over, I have still been LOVING this deodorant. It has a sweet floral scent that lasts all day long. Even after a long day out adventuring for the day, the scent doesn't fade.

Last but not least, I ALWAYS carry around Lip Balm in my bag. For summer reason, I'm not sure why, but my lips tend to get really chapped in the summer months. Because of this, I always carry around some lip balm. Everyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with the Nivea Lip Butter in the scent Vanilla and Macadamia. It keeps my lips super moisturized for long periods of time and never leaves that gross sticky feeling some lip balms give off.
