St. Ives Apricot Scrub. There's nothing better at scrubbing away grimy sunscreen and sand after a long day on the beach than this stuff. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth after every shower. Although, I do use it sparingly. Why? I somehow have it in my little head that if I scrub too hard, I will scrub my tan away. I know, I know. Laugh it up. But I'm serious! (Although I'm pretty sure that can't happen).
I love, love, LOVE this stuff right here. Vaseline's Aloe Fresh Hydrating lotion. Mmm, Mmm! After having divulged my fear of scrubbing away my tan in the shower, I just slather on a healthy amount of this stuff and I'm ready to head out the door! Tan included! It's light, it's fresh and doesn't leave behind any filmy, sticky residue. Coming from a girl who's bathroom cabinets look like the aisles of a CVS drugstore, this moisturizer is a must-have!
Despite falling into bed with an almost full face of makeup on each night, one thing I refuse to do is wear make-up to the beach. Although these Neutrogena Make-Up Removing clothes are perfect for a few swipes before hitting the hay, they also do wonders on the beach/after the beach for getting that grimy, icky, gross sunscreen film off of your face. Easy to use, easy to throw into your beach bag, these facial wipes are won-der-ful. They even come in thin travel-sized packages for easy packing.
And last but certainly not least, a girl can't forget a little SPF chapstick!
Along with a couple tubes of my favorite SPF chapstick, hair ties and elastic headbands, you can rest assured these items are the first to go into my suitcase. Clothes are a whole other story.. Speaking of clothes, did I mention that I've already started writing down/pairing outfits in a little notebook.. I didn't?
Good. I didn't want you thinking I'm crazy.. or... anything!
Happy Thursday! What are some of your Summer Must-Have's?
