Favorite Things: August

This month’s favorite things are all about protecting those eyes and everything around them from the sun!

First up is the most important way to protect those eyes – sunglasses!
My favorites right now are Maui Jim sunglasses. The lenses in their sunglasses are perfect for being outside and around the water. The clarity and glare reduction is amazing. Their PolarizedPlus2® lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare while enhancing colors and depth perception. They also eliminate 100% of the UV radiation to provide superior protection for your eyes. I also love that they are durable – they naturally provide a high level of scratch resistance but many also come with the CLEARSHELL® treatment to further enhance their durability. They also offer tons of frame and lens options to choose from. If you haven’t stopped in to see our huge selection of Maui Jim sunglasses I highly suggest that you do – we are the number 1 Maui Jim retailer in the Capital Region!

Next up is my favorite spray sunscreen for my face. The Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist has SPF 50 and controls oil and shine all while it sets your makeup. You definitely do not have to be wearing makeup to use this though. It’s light, not sticky, absorbs quickly, and smells great. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and it is so easy to reapply. Just close your eyes and lightly spray around your face and you will be all set for that day in the sun.

Protecting your hair and scalp is also another important step before any fun in the sun. I spritz my hair with the Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist before heading out. This mist boosts shine while protecting your hair and scalp with a UV filter. It smells great and makes my hair super soft.

Next up is the Coola ROSSILIANCE® BB Cream and Face SPF 30. I love Coola for all of their eco-conscious products and love that there are no extra ingredients like parabens or phthalates. This BB cream is more like a tinted moisturizer and it goes on like a dream. It is mineral based and feels like you have nothing on. It is water resistant and has plant stem cell protection built right in. It smells like roses and is make from organic ingredients.

Last but not least is the IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation. It literally takes 30 seconds to put on and it has SPF 50 built right in. I love that it hydrates and has so many good for your skin ingredients. It also looks amazing without much effort. IT Cosmetics products are all cruelty free and paraben free and are great for anybody with sensitive skin.
