2. Musq rose mist
A soothing and balancing Rose Facial Mist enriched with natural ingredients, this Musq Rose Facial Mist is perfect for calming sensitive and irritated skin (aka too much sun, sunscreen and cheeky cocktails) and will leave skin hydrated, balanced and refreshed, perfect for those long summer days!
3. Jojoba Oil Company After Sun Rescue pack
Got a little too much sun? Then this is what you need!! I especially love the Redness Reducing Balm to cool and calm the skin, while the hydrating mist contains chamomile and their famous 100% Natural Australian Jojoba oil to repair. #winning great to have in the first aid kit too check it out here
4. Coconut water
Because summer days are just not complete without coconut water on hand. Read more about the benefits of sipping my fave drop here
5. Kiri organic gradual tan
Because we all need a little colour in the warmer months minus the skin cancer risk. Forget the chemicals and try something a little closer to nature with moisturising avocado and macadamia nut oils, NZ native kawakawa extract, soothing elderflower, nourishing chamomile and Vitamin E in an antioxidant-rich organic raspberry water base. It is also contains certified organic geranium oil which provides a fresh, natural aroma which means no more fan tan smell giveaways! Read more about it here
6. Pressed Juices
Too much holiday cheer and not enough of, well anything that resembles fruit or veges? Then do your self (and your body) a favour and add a few of these into your life. No additives, no preservatives, and no pasteurisation – it is as simple as real, living, wholesome produce transformed into natural liquid nutrition. And they taste delicious.
7. Ray bans
Because, Ray Bans. Be one of the cool kids this summer and get a new pair stat. My go-to is just the classic pair but if you are brave do a little further investigation into the new as there are some new kids on the block that may interest you. Avoid the holiday cues and just buy a pair online – leaving you with more beach time, play time and chill time!
8. Burts Bee lip balm
I have a serious lip balm addiction (I’m not joking), and one of my resolutions is to wean myself off them so I don’t have to apply every 30 minutes (dam you Blistex!), luckily I have started early and Burts Bees is helping me get there. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. There is even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.. No wonder it is their most popular product! I’m pretty partial to their tinted balms as well.
