Are you having a heatwave in your neck of the woods? It’s been low 90’s here all week! I am seriously melting away! Since I can’t spend all day, everyday, inside the swimming pool keeping cool, I need to ensure my skin is protected from the harsh sun; especially when it’s hot, and my kids want to be outside!

When Elizabeth Arden sent me a fun PR package filled with summer beauty essentials to test out, I was thrilled! I have been searching for a lip balm with SPF, and this one is fabulous! It feels like lipstick, but it’s a balm with SPF. That is really hard to find. I am so tired of gooey SPF products for lips, or products which are drying. It’s so hard to find something in between which moisturizes, protects and feels normal on the lips. Elizabeth Arden hit a home run with their SPF lip balm. It’s my newest summer beauty addiction! I can wear it alone, or under lipstick. Either way, it performs well. Love it!

I also want to give a shout-out to this eight-hour daily defense cream. It’s an amazing facial sunscreen with SPF 35 which I can wear alone, or under my face powder; I don’t wear foundation since I am acne prone. Speaking of acne prone, this sunscreen does not clog my pores or give me acne. That’s a key feature of something I put on my face since my face loves to break out. Love!

We still have two more months of summer, plus this weather will continue until October; at least here in the San Francisco Bay Area. That being said, summer beauty essentials with SPF are a must-have for right now, and for the months to come. What are your favorite SPF products for the summer season?

Thanks for stopping by!
