I know we have a few more weeks until the official start of summer. However, since Memorial Day is behind us and the kids are out of school, summer vacation is in full swing. I love the lack of schedule and lazy days outside, but my skin doesn’t always agree. I’m excited to share a few L’BRI products that are helping my get skin summer-ready.
Thank you to L’BRI for sponsoring this post
Before I get started on the skincare, I want to share a little bit about the L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL. I actually worked with L’BRI just over a year ago on an Instagram campaign. I tried out a bunch of their aloe-based and all natural products and loved them! A month or two later, we moved, started our insane remodel, and headed to LA for the summer.
Since we only had limited space in our suitcases for the summer, I ended up packing the majority of my makeup, skincare and other cosmetics in boxes and storing them in the closet of our house. After all, I was spending the summer at the beach – I didn’t need a ton of products, right?
Well, that wasn’t the best choice because all those boxes of beauty products and a ton of other things were stolen during our renovation. I’ll leave the whole theft story for another day, but I was so, so sad a bunch of my L’BRI products were gone. Therefore, I was thrilled when the amazing folks over at L’BRI reached back out to me to see if I’d like to do another collaboration.
OK back to present day. Like most moms, I’m doing my best to keep my kids occupied without excessive screen time. We’ve been SO lucky to have had a mild spring in Arizona, which means we are doing our very best to enjoy every single possible moment outside. Games in the backyard, play dates at the park, meals on the patio. You know where I’m going with this one – SPF.
I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin a few years ago when I added a moisturizer with SPF to my everyday skincare routine. I still apply a heavier sunscreen for days at the pool, but I’m a big fan of the L’BRI Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF 32.
Funny thing about this product, this was one of the few I took with me to LA last summer since I use it every single day. I usually go work out most mornings when I wake up, so this is the first product I put on my skin after cleansing. I like the sun protection, along with the oil-free formula. Doesn’t hurt it is on sale right now!
Next up, the Rejuvenating Facial Peel. I have naturally dry skin and I find that exfoliating on a regular basis helps my face feel fresh and bright. Especially during the summer in AZ when I essentially live in a sauna, regular peels and masks are a game changer.
The biggest reason why I like this L’BRI peel? It takes a total of ONE MINUTE. I usually try to do it at least once a week, first thing in the morning before I wash my face and moisturize. I simply rub the gel onto my face until skin beads start forming. Then I’ll rinse it off and go on my merry with baby smooth skin.
OK last up is something we try to avoid in my house – sun overexposure. The dreaded sun burn. I’m actually embarrassed to post these pictures of Kenzie, but the sun got the best of her at the pool last week. Despite constant sunscreen application, she came home with some pretty pink cheeks. Yes, it made me feel awful as a parent, but I was so happy to have something in my vanity to help.
The L’BRI Aloe Vera Barbadensis Jelly gave her immediate relief and helped aid her skin back to health by the next day. This aloe gel is combined with select botanicals to penetrate and quickly calm and soothe irritated skin. We’ve also started using this on scrapes, cuts and insect bites. Since all the ingredients are natural, I love that they are safe to use for the entire family.
