Hope everyone is having a great week! Spring seems to finally be on its way over here in the Northeast, and I’m not so patiently waiting. When the weather starts to get warmer, I always change my beauty routine. When the summer rolls around, I’m all about light coverage, hydrating products, keeping my skin refreshed and protecting from sun damage. I’m sharing my spring beauty essentials today with the three products that are my tried and true!
Starting off, one essential has to be sunscreen. I wear sunscreen daily, but in the summer months I like to change things up and use something with a higher SPF, and I have started to search on Nordstrom for a new one. I’ve heard amazing things about this Shiseido sunscreen and after reading the reviews, I was sold. It’s suitable for oily skin, doesn’t leave a white cast, absorbs well and is super lightweight! Plus, you can wear it under your makeup or wear it alone when you’re headed to the beach. The fact that it’s super small and lightweight makes throwing it into my purse easy, and a little goes a long way too!
Since we’re talking about sunscreen, the one item I made sure I picked up this year before summer started was a lip protectant! It’s one of those things that you always think you have – but you never do. And then your lips end up looking like you’re wearing a bold lip, but in reality – it’s sunburn. Can you tell I’m talking from experience? Hah! This Supergoop one has a super high SPF, smells like mint and can be worn everyday. I constantly have it in my makeup bag! Nordstrom has a ton of other great lip protectants, so if you’re on the look out, make sure to head there first!
After being outside in the summer, my skin always needs a bit of a refresh. I’ve been using this Caudalie mist for years and have gone through countless bottles. It’s the perfect mix of refreshing and hydration in one spritz. On more than a few occasions, I’ve sprayed way too much (because I just can’t get enough), and it’s even better on a warmer day. I also spray it when I’m done with my makeup to set it. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin one bit, even my husband ends up stealing it! It’s always in my purse and even comes in a smaller size which is great for travel. Speaking of travel, If you’re headed on some summer travels definitely check out Nordstrom’s section of travel size beauty and skincare! And I mean, isn’t everything cuter in travel sized? I can’t get enough!
