So since Spring is officially here, I figured people were starting to have spring break. You know the week off you had all through school and college, and then somehow it mysteriously disappeared once you entered the work force?! Hopefully you’re heading somewhere sunny for spring break, I thought I would round out my top picks on what I’m bringing with me. After all, I’ll take any excuse to snag some green beauty loot!
My top spring break green beauty picks include a little of everything, from best tinted moisturizer with sunscreen, to coffee scrub(hello cellulite), and a spring scent that will make you want to dance all night.
I’m going to be reviewing more products from Marie Veronique in the future but for now, I just had to tell you about this tinted moisturizer with spf 30. It’s not like other tinted moisturizers with sunscreen I’ve used that leave my skin feeling greasy and shiny. This one actually feels hydrating when applied, but then settles into the skin perfectly with no sheen. I’m addicted! Not to mention, the sunscreen in it is full spectrum, non-nano and 30?! That’s hard to find. It comes in extra light, light and medium. I chose light and it’s a perfect match. It isn’t super heavy coverage but just enough to even your skin out and look pulled together. Plus, when I’m on vacation I always go with less, especially when I’m prancing around in the water. I love that it comes in a glass pump bottle too, so easy to use. I’ll be wearing this all spring and summer. Trust me, you will love it! $48
Not only will this wake you up in the shower, but also target those stubborn little dimples. I mean swimsuit season is here peeps, and we all could use a little help evening out skin tone. This scrub is made from just a handful of natural ingredients. It smells like a fresh cup of coffee and leaves your skin silky smooth. Let’s just say I’m addicted. I also have the Pucker Lip Scrub from INA DAYLE as well, and I’ve been using it in the morning as a little pick me up. It has a cinnamon coffee smell that is divine! My lips can get chapped and peel in warm or cold weather, so this will be the perfect companion for a sunny spring break trip. Plus, spring break can mean late nights, and what better way to wake up then to some coffee scrubs! Oh and did I mention they both come in these really cute glass jars? Yeah, I’m a fan. INA DAYLE has been so kind to offer 10% off your purchase using code: gurlgoneID. Snag some before your trip here! $22 & $18
Who doesn’t want to smell good for spring break?! This perfume just came out not too long ago, and has me craving sunny weather like nobody’s business. It comes in this chic little glass roll on-so easy to take with you on a trip. The scent is perfect for spring, light and airy. With notes of rose, sandalwood, geranium, lavender and petitgrain, it will have you thinking happy thoughts. I love being able to still wear perfume, and know it’s completely natural. All the essential oils in Kahina’s perfumes are steam distilled. Snag one of these if you want to smell yummy! $78
Kostmatology recently came out with a new scent for their body wash and scrub and I’m loving it! I love anything with mint, and this is made with spearmint and rosemary-a match made in scent heaven. I’ve been using both and can’t get enough. It makes you crave the lightness of spring and sunny days. My husband is obsessed with the scrub, I’ve had to tell him to rotate, because he uses it everyday! Both the scrub and body wash give your skin that fresh tingly feeling. They remind you spring is here, and summer is just around the corner. I love anything Kostmatology. Janis the founder, uses only the best ingredients and nothing harsh. My skin always feels moisturized when I’m done using her products. If you haven’t used their hand soap yet, get on it-it’s the best I’ve tried! My hands never get dry. Check out my review of it here. $11.99 & $18.99
This is the perfect all over body mineral sunscreen. It just contains zinc oxide, offering both UVA and UVB, an SPF of 30+ and is of course non-nano. It doesn’t make you look like a ghost either! Best of all it works! I love that this is fragrance free as well. It feels more like a lotion, than an oily sunscreen. They also state on their website that they’re safe for the “gluten sensitive.” It gets two thumbs up from me for it’s large size too. Sometimes on vacation I’ll need to bring a couple because the size is so small, but DeVita’s is a large 7 oz. tube! $27.95
That sums up my spring break green beauty picks! What are some must have green beauty items you’re bringing with you?
