#Aveenosun has you COVERED this summer!

Trends come and go but healthy skin is always in! AVEENO® offers a wide range of sun care products with superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and exclusive ACTIVE NATURALS® ingredients for healthy, beautiful skin.

What I appreciate about Aveeno – is that I don’t have to worry at all about not being protected. Their sunscreen is by far the ONLY sunscreen I use daily, and keep in my purse!

The sun is finally here in Oregon – and it is HOT! We were in the sun this holiday weekend from Thursday all the way through Sunday, without much of a break. To keep myself and the kids protected during our 90 degree days, I kept us lathered up in Aveeno’s sunblock. I love their face sunblocks because I don’t have to worry about it clogging my pores.

Saturday afternoon I took my boys to a local pool, where I sat on the side, reading a book. I recently downloaded “A House in the Sky” on my Kindle, and I am tearing through it! The kids swam, and I sat in the sun, reading a book. It was heaven, not gonna lie.

#Aveeno sent along a goodie bag full of summer must-haves! I got a pair of Wildfox Sunglasses, Aveeno Sun Block, and a beautiful gold Make a Wish bracelet! What’s in your summer must-have bag?

Dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie has included these Sun Tips to remember when outdoors:

Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

Sunscreen protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays. It prevents and slows down the aging process.

Make sure to use 1 oz. of sunscreen on all exposed skin. Pay careful attention to face, neck, ears, back of neck & hands.

Spread the word and encourage others to protect their skin too.

Another COVERGIRL product to AVOID!

IMG_2067

COVERGIRL has done it again. After their disastrous Bombshell mascara fiasco I had planned on forgetting about how awful the stuff was. And then I tried their Felt Tip Liner – and IT TOO has let me down!

I am a HUGE liquid eyeliner person. ESPECIALLY the kind with felt tips, I find them easier to use than the ones with the brushes. When I first tried this – right out of the package, I loved it. It worked beautifully – went on smoothly, washed off easily.

The second time was not so easy. The brush got all wonky, and didn’t work properly. The third time I went to use it, I opened it up, and the top of the brush had completely separated from the bottle, and spilled black liner all over my bathroom. Check out the reviews – I’m not alone.

I don’t know COVERGIRL….. you’re not hitting the mark these days!
