The Sun Essentials


Kari Gran 365 SPF 28* – The new Kari Gran Sunscreen has easily become my go-to. It has a delightful serum-like texture that feels light on the skin, and keeps you well covered with both UVA and UVB sun protection. Once the product is well blended into the skin, there is no white cast left behind, I assure you. An antioxidant-rich cocktail of nourishing oils helps to further protect your skin from sun damage. Ingredients including, red raspberry seed oil, french plum seed oil, macadamia nut oil, sunflower seed oil, and kukui nut oil work to deeply hydrate, heal, and promote cell tissue regeneration.

The Organic Pharmacy Tan Accelerator* – In the Tan Accelerator from The Organic Pharmacy, betacarotene and kapi kacchu extract work to stimulate melanin production for a deeper tan in less time. This tinted formula deposits and instant bronzed glow to the skin, minimizing the appearance of imperfections. It’s delightfully lightweight gel-like texture blends seamlessly into the skin. I have also been using this regularly as leg makeup, its stunning! The Tan Accelerator does not replace your sunscreen, but is meant to be used in addition to it.

Body Oils – In the heat of summer, body oils are the way to go! The perfect summer oil blends contain high amounts of antioxidants, which will additionally protect your skin from the sun. Some great options are One Love Organics Gardenia & Tea Antioxidant Body Serum and Lina Hanson’s Global Baby Serum, both of which contain lightweight oils that absorb instantly.


Nucifera’s The Balm* – This coconut-based balm has a multitude of uses and is great for weekend getaways. It can be used to hydrate skin from head to toe – think hair, lips, cuticles, feet or really anywhere you please. See my full review here.

Captain Blankenship Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray – For creating tousled beach waves, the Captain Blankenship Sea Salt Sprays are my go-to. The Golden Waves formula include golden mica, which adds some luster to your locks. See my full review here.

Board and Batten “Farm to Skin” Calming Lift –  I always have a face mist on me in the hot summer months. The Calming lift has become one of my absolute favorites! It’s delightfully refreshing and wonderfully hydrating with a blend of aloe, rose-water, silk peptides and hyaluronic acid.

C.V. Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray The Rescue & Relief Spray contains a combination of soothing, calming and hydrating ingredients that delivers instant relief to inflamed skin – like on those days when you’ve had too much sun. It’s a great product to have around to treat a multitude of skin issues!

Suntegrity Lip C.P.R SPF 30 – For sun protection with a tint, the Suntegrity Lip C.P.R offers Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and comes in a selection of 8 beautiful shades. I have the shade Peach Sunrise, which is a beautiful pale-peach shade with golden shimmer. It feels light and hydrating on the lips and offers a glossy finish. I did however experience some melting in the heat of the sun.

Maria Shireen Hair Tie Bracelet* – This chic and functional bracelet turns your hair tie into a piece of jewelry, genius! No more gnarly looking rubber bands around your wrist, or unsightly indentations. You can swap out the bands for any color you please.


Wishing you happy and healthy sun days!
