Headed to the pool this weekend with a few of my must-have beauty tools! #ad #HeatIsOnBBxx
Monterey just doesn’t get hot! It is one of those blissful bubbles that stay 65 all day every day. So we head out to the valley to take in the sun and lounge by the pool during the Summer. I love it out there just as much as I love the foggy beach. The drive is about an hour and the area is a bit more remote. You kinda have to bring all your pool day essentials or risk having to go back into town for things!
I always pack the same few things. SPF first, a good hat, some iced tea drinks, towels, sunnies, my favorite skincare and haircare products, and some snacks! Here’s a break down of what I have in my pool essentials tote bag.
My Favorite Pool Day Essentials
Straight Up Tea— LOVE these all-natural no fillers black tea drinks. I like unsweetened and my husband goes for the sorta-sweet. It has just a pinch of sugar mixed with black tea. So yum! The perfect poolside refreshment. The twist top means no spills by the pool or in my bag! The container is recyclable plastic so I don’t have to worry about breaking glass either.
Ozeaderma ANTI-AGING ANTIOXIDANT SUNSCREEN, SPF 35 Broad Spectrum – The most important item in my bag! I slather this on me and the baby and my husband! A little tip pop it on before leaving the house–that way it is at max efficacy when you get to the pool plus it has set so it doesn’t just wash off. I bring it with me and apply as soon as I get out of the pool, too! I like Ozeaderma because it is natural, vegan, free of harsh chemicals, parabens and made from 100% natural mineral Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide ingredients. I just really like the texture and scent! It feels good on and smells great. Use code SUNNY for 10% off!
Zenni sunglasses– I have gone my whole life attempting not to squint! So sunglasses go with me everywhere. This Summer I am so into white shades. Bonus that this Zenni eyewear has cute studs! You can customize the tint to match your personality with 7 different colors, including yellow, purple, pink, green, blue, amber, and gray!
White Wine Shine Enhancing Shampoo & Conditioner – My hair always looks so dull and gross after the pool- saltwater or chlorine just dries it right out! I just started using this shampoo set and am so excited about it. WINE EXTRACT is packed with antioxidants to help rejuvenate, strengthen & soften hair. Paired with RESVERATROL, found in the skin of grapes, it protects & restores hair. Shop the Unwined by HASK collection at Ulta Beauty. My hair is instantly glossy and pretty; so we can pop out for dinner after a day in the sun no problem.
Colleen Rothschild Skincare – Great skincare after the pool is a MUST! I am so enamored with the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm. It feels so great, cleans all the grime of the day off and leaves my skin feeling soothed, refreshed and glowing after a day at the pool. I like to use the matcha green tea toner after to soothe and add back in a little hydration. Plus, green tea is super helpful to fight free-radicals after sun exposure. I finish with the sheer renewal cream. A super luxe, anti-aging, cream that has Detoxophane™ to help with environmental defense. If we are going out I pop on some more SPF if we are staying in I pop on eye gel masks and relax! Use code BOXX20 valid from 7/8/19- 7/31/19 for 20% off.
