SPF Yourself: LAVANILA The Healthy Sun Screen SPF 30.

SPF Yourself is a series of posts featuring products that contain a sunscreen, or SPF, in them. Not only sunscreens, but body lotions, facial moisturizers, eye creams, foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzers, hair care and more will be featured. Only the best in beauty with SPF!

I have added a new step to my routine this summer, which I hope to continue all year long.  I have been slathering my entire body with sunscreen, no matter if I am about to head outside or not, every morning.  Finding one that is not heavy or smells like the tropics isn't as easy as you would think.  I started using LAVANILA The Healthy Sun Screen SPF 30 Body Cream after my shower and my skin is thanking me for it.

Not only does my skin feel smooth, it is protected with the new generation of mineral sunscreens.  Made with an ultra-nourishing blend of antioxidant-rich green tea, soothing cucumber and organic shea butter, this non-greasy and non-whitening block delivers the ultimate in hydrating sun protection.

Lavanila’s Healthy Sunscreen is 100% natural and made with mineral sunscreens for superior UVA/UVB protection.  Completely free of harsh chemicals, all formulas are fragrance-free and infused with a superior complex of skin-saving vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

LAVANILA The Healthy Sun Screen SPF 30 Body Cream sells for $38.00 at Sephora.

The Summer Essential Kit by Lisa Curran for Lavanila.

Are you so into summer now that it has unofficially kicked off over the weekend? I am and cannot wait for it to really warm up (why is it only 45 degrees this morning?).

This is a great set to get us all in the mood. Swim wear designer Lisa Curran and Lavanila Laboratories have joined together to create this great beauty of set and they are calling it the Summer Essential Kit by Lisa Curran for Lavanila.

This year, Lisa Curran created a lavender-themed swim wear collection that was inspired by the delicate scent of Lavanila’s new lavender line. The shade of lavender she chose is absolutely beautiful and can be worn by any skin-tone. The Summer Essential Kit includes a choice of select swimsuits from this lavender themed collection and summer must-haves from Lavanila’s Vanilla Lavender line.

The Summer Essential Kit includes:

  • One of three lavender-hued Lisa Curran swimsuits

  • A Lavanila Vanilla Lavender Healthy Lip Shine

  • A travel-sized Lavanila Vanilla Lavender Healthy Body Butter

  • A waterproof, reusable pouch (great to tote beach side essentials while keeping them safe from sand and water damage)

The Summer Essential Kit is also for a good cause...with each purchase, Lisa Curran and Lavanila are giving back to The Ocean Project. The Ocean Project is a nonprofit organization that works in partnership with aquariums, zoos, and museums around the world to protect the ocean.


I want it. How about you? Check out the Summer Essential Kit on lisacurran.com where it sells for $175.
