Heading out for spring break? There are beauty essentials that you will need to take with you to have you hair, makeup and skin looking its spring break best. Check out what I brought with me on my recent trip to Florida. These spring break beauty essentials got me through a busy week in the sand, surf and sun looking my best.
Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse - This self-tanning mousse is completely odorless, light, airy and super long-lasting. It dries within a minute and will give you a deep, dark self tan that lasts. After just three applications, my tan lasts a good ten days and fades evenly.
Philosophy Sunshine Grace Firming Grace Body Emulsion - This lightweight body lotion hydrates and soothes skin as it smoothes it. I am addicted to the fresh and breezey floral scent. Put it on after your morning shower or after a long day outside enjoying the spring weather or day in the sun.
Alterna Perfect Texture Finishing Spray - The perfect mix of dry shampoo and hairspray, this finishing spray builds body, shape and texture into my hair without leaving that powdery feel of dry shampoo or the sticky feel of hairspray in it. Hair looks great pulled up for a beach day and then re-styled for night with just a few sprays of this product and a few minutes of styling.
Venus Embrace Razor - I love this razor and taking this with you ensures your body will be smooth and hair free on spring break. The oval shape helps get to those harder to reach or the more complicated areas like your back of knees, bikini area, ankles and of course, the under arms. Look for the new updated packaging on store shelves, with the same great 5 blade razor inside.
Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen - Sunscreen is a daily essential and this body cream glides on and provides a high level of sun protection (SPF 50) that doesn't irritate my skin. This contains an innovative SolarSmart™ complex that triggers an anti-aging repair process to provide skin a high level of defense from the aging and burning effects of both UVA and UVB rays so it's like doing double duty.
AVEENO PROTECT + HYDRATE Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 For Face - Facial sunscreen is a must, especially as we spend more time outside in the spring and summer. This fast absorbing, lightweight lotion combines ENVIROGUARD™ Technology and ACTIVE NATURALS Colloidal Oatmeal to deliver the every so important broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection while hydrating skin to keep it super soft and looking great while enjoying spring break.
CoverGirl Clump Crusher Water Resistant Mascara - Water resistant or waterproof mascara that goes the distance during spring beauty is a must. My favorite everyday mascara is Clump Crusher, and this water resistant version is my go-to in the summer months. Of course it came with me on my spring break and that's why I am recommending it for you here. This mascara never fails to give me big lashes; all the volume, length and drama I need without any clumps, flakes or smudges - ever.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 - Lip balm is obviously a must, and I love this tinted version of the cult favorite. My pick is Honey, a sheer nude. This lip balm does a fantastic job of picking lips super soft and supple while keeping them protected from the sun with SPF15. No spring break beauty bag should be without it.
These are all proven beauty products that you are going to need all through spring and summer too, so don't worry if you are not headed out for spring break either. Trust me, these beauties are in my bathroom and makeup bag all season long.
