Summer is here and I want to share some of my new favorite sun care items! During the summer months my boys and I are constantly in the sun at the beach, pool and lake and I need to keep my skin protected. I am loving the Badger line for them in case you are looking for a great natural line for kids. Below I am highlighting three SPF/sun care items that I am using on the regular over here in sunny Orange County.
Coola Sport SPF 50
I love wearing this SPF when I am going to be in the sun a long time. Especially when going into the water, I feel like I stay very protected. It is a great facial sun protection and lovely on the skin.
Supergoop! Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil Broad Spectrum SPF 50
This is my new favorite find for the summer! It is a lightweight oil with an SPF of 50 and the best part for me is it is a spray pump. I keep this is my beach bag and reapply it on the go. It is super hydrating without feeling greasy and it leaves my skin glowing. It smells divine as well. I buy mine at Sephora.
Hydra-Repair Toner with Lavender
Lastly, my Hydra-Repair Toner is something I carry in my purse wherever I go! One of the best features of the toner is helping to stop the aging process due to sun and other oxidative stress along with being super hydrating and repairing. I spray this toner during times spent outdoors and also the minute I get out of the sun to calm and hydrate. I use this on my little ones as well. You can stick in the cooler to keep it cold and refreshing.
These products help me enjoy my summer without worrying too much about damage from the sun. Also, don’t forget the hat! ♥
After using and loving the Everyday Shea Body Lotion, I decided to try another product from the line, this time for my little. The Shea Butter Shampoo & Body Wash has super pure ingredients which are calming and soothing. Young children have especially delicate skin and it is important to try and avoid harsh cleansing agents, fragrances and too many preservatives.
Everyday Shea does not use parabens, synthetic fragrance and is cruelty-free. Click here to read about the ways in which this company is supporting the community in Africa. Next on my list from the product brand is the Conditioner/DeTangler since my little guy has got mama’s crazy curly hair! Not to worry, it’s MUCH cuter on him! I’ll report back on this one too.
Summer is officially here! This is a great time to take inventory of your sun protection and to stock up on your favorite SPF, preparing for those beach/park days ahead for you and your family. I recently tried the Supergoop! SPF for the first time and LOVE it. I bought the SPF 30 for face and body which is a lotion and they also have other options depending on which type of application you prefer (spray, wipes etc). The lotion rubbed in without the ‘attractive’ white streak, was very lightweight and does not sting the eyes, hallelujah!

I love what I have read about the brand Supergoop!, they take pride in the quality of their products by eliminating harmful ingredients. Looks like I might have found the perfect sunscreen for my little guy and I to share! I will be buying the 24 oz size next time for the Body, that comes with a pump so I can slather away.
Knowing what we now know about the dangers of UV damage it is crucial we protect the little ones (and ourselves of course) with safe and effective products! Time to goop it up.
