Sun Bum Hair Care Line

Hey everyone!

As you all must know by now, I absolutely love Sun Bum's sunscreen line. So, when I heard that they were now offering a hair care line as well, you know I just had to try it out! I was lucky enough to receive some samples, so let's go over my thoughts!

Let me just get one thing out of the way, all of these hair products smell amazing! I'm talking about banana, coconut, and beach amazing! Btw, anyone know of a cute single surfer guy? I'm available!

Sun Bum Beach Formula Shampoo 

Our Beach Formula Shampoo cleanses out saltwater, chlorine, and environmental pollutants while delivering deep nutrion, smoothing, and shine. 

We use it religiously to lock in color, strengthen our hair, and keep it looking beautiful. Our special blend restores lost moisture, repairs the damage, and provides unmatched humidity-resistant frizz control. 

It's gonna be your new favorite. 

My Thoughts 

I love this shampoo! It lathers up very nicely in my hair and deep cleans it, while conditioning it at the same time. I have found that my hair has more bounce, a shiner color, and I've even had people sniff me and ask how I smell so good (total keeper!) 

Sun Bum Beach Formula Conditioner 

Our Beach Formula Conditioner deeply hydrates and awakens hair, making it highly responsive and manageable. 

Our luxurious conconction locks in hair color and repairs strands from within, while powerful antioxidants provide UV protecion to help prevent color fade and damage. 

We love it because it makes our hair super smooth, shiny, and happy. 

My Thoughts 

This conditioner works great to keep my hair tangle free when I step out of the shower. All I have to do is run a comb through it, throw it up into a bun or ponytail, and out the door I go! Plus, I found that my hair seems to be less frizzy, which is a total plus in a humid climate! 

Sun Bum Beach Formula 3-in-1 Leave In 

Our Beach Formula 3 In 1 Leave In protects, detangles, and conditions your hair while enhancing and restoring its natural body. 

 It controls frizz, prevents split ends, slows color fading and will leave your hair silky-smooth and shiny. 

It is, by far, the most "borrowed" item from our beach house. 

My Thoughts 

I am all about leave in conditioners, and this one is totally on point! A few quick sprays, and my beach hair is ready to comb out. No more struggles with salt water tangles for me! 

Sun Bum Beach Formula Sea Salt Spray 

Our Beach Formula Sea Spray protects your hair from the elements while giving it extra body, waves, and texture for that beach windswept look. 

 Our lightweight formula enhances strand separation and definition, instantly blocking humidity that causes frizz. It'll give your hair just the right amount of volume with a matte-finish hold. 

My Thoughts 

When I don't have time to go to the beach, this sea salt spray gives me those beachy waves. It's super easy to use, smells great, and leaves my hair looks gorgeous! 

Sun Bum Beach Formula Shine On 

Our Beach Formula Shine On lightweight oil treatment protects your hair from the elements while naturally hydrating, restoring, and strengthening your hair. 

 The tropical blend of oils and sea botanicals work to revitalize your hair, adding manageability and a brilliant silky shine. 


My Thoughts 

If you like shiny, healthy hair than this is the product for you! All I do is take a small amount on my fingertips, and work it through the ends of my hair. Comb out, and you're all ready! 

Overall, I love love love this new hair care line, and it will become a stable in my life for sure! 

Did I mention I love these products? Because I totally do! 

So, grab your beach bag, your cute surfer boyfriend, and let's hit the waves!

From the Original Line:

~Pink Punch

~Strike a Rose
~Pink Shock

Do you have any Maybelline Baby Lips? What are your favorites?

Keep Your Skin Safe While Having Fun in the Sun!

Hey everyone!

I love spring and summer, except my skin tends to burn very easily. So, for the upcoming seasons, I decided that I was going to play it smart, and load up on the sunscreen! Recently, I was lucky enough to try out some sunscreen products, and my skin has never been happier. Plus, all of these items smell great.

You all know by now how much I adore Sun Bum sunscreen. Not only does it work, without being greasy on the skin, it smells just like delicious bananas! The two I will be carrying with me in my pool and beach bags are:

Sun Bum  Original Spray Sunscreen in SPF 50 - This sunscreen is water resistant, and lasts on the skin for 80 minutes. After that time frame, you should reapply or if you've been excessively swimming or sweating. It also contains Vitamin E, so your skin is nourished as you use it. Plus, one of my favorite parts about this sunscreen is that it is paraben, gluten, PABA, and Oil free!

Sun Bum Original Sunscreen Lotion in SPF 30 - This sunscreen lotion is perfect to toss in your beach bag, and apply whenever your going to be out and about in the sun. My favorite part about this sunscreen? It smells incredible and it is hypoallergenic and photostable.

Nios Shield Leave-in Conditioner - I don't know about you, but my scalp can burn, which means a painful experience in my book. This leave-in condition from Nios Shield prevents that with SPF 15. Plus, it contains Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, and Argan oil. Meaning that it not only helps to keep your hair healthy, it reduces frizz and gives it shine!

There you have it, all of the products I will be keeping close to me during these hot months to come!
