Summer is here and that means whether you’re heading to the beach, on vacation, or on the road for a fun cross-country adventure, you have to pack your essentials. From sunscreen, to sunnies, to a back-up charger, you are prepared and ready to go, right? Well, almost ready. My go-to summer essentials that are always in my summertime tote? Neutrogena® Sheer Smooch Tinted Lip Oil; Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 30; and of course, U® by Kotex Click. To be prepared for wherever my day takes me, I always pack these trusted essentials before I leave the house. So, let me give you the 411 on why (because trust me, after you hear, you will be adding these items to your bag ASAP)!
I don’t know about you but when there are hot summer temps, I am all for a natural and lightweight makeup look. And that is a struggle when you want to look cute but also feel good.
First off, SPF is essential for summertime skin protection, which is why I am loving the Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 30. The SPF 30 has a sheer formula with Vitamins A, C, and E. It’s designed for natural-looking coverage, which is what I am all about. A lot of times, people often skip sunscreen because they don’t like the smell or the heavy feeling—so finding a product like this that combines protective coverage with a flawless, natural-looking finish makes it a total summer MUST-HAVE!
I use the Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 30 in Ivory to Fair and as I get a bit more color over the summer, I switch to the Light to Tan to match my glowy skin. Be sure to look for more colors in store! This go-to is super affordable and is available at Walmart, along with my next favorite product (also from Neutrogena®): the Sheer Smooch Tinted Lip Oil!
Ok, I LOVE this lip product for so many reasons but just to share a few…it’s made with good-for-you ingredients like Vitamin E, camellia seed oil, sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil. It also provides the perfect sheer tint of color without being heavy or sticky like a lot of glosses or lipsticks etc. The Neutrogena® Sheer Smooch Tinted Lip Oil gives you the color you want with a natural look and feel, making it my go-to lippie for the summer season.
My favorite shade? Well, it’s a close tie between Steal A Kiss and I’m Blushing, both available at Walmart, making them an easy grab when you are there picking up your summer gathering or travel essentials.
Last but not least, the essential every woman should have in their summer tote: U by Kotex Click. With busy summer activities happening daily, I never let my time of the month get in my way, and U by Kotex Click helps keep me prepared for mother nature whenever she hits. They are ideal for active women like myself. They provide full-sized period protection in a small package! Such a win!
They are designed so that you can discreetly carry one in your purse or pocket, and the core is made from a 100% elemental bleach-free rayon material. Their body-conforming fit prevents leaks, and they leave you with a superior clean and dry feeling with minimal presence. Best part? You can also pick these up at Walmart…your one-stop shop for all of your summer needs.
