This post has been sponsored by Neutrogena® and U by Kotex®. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Summer—hands down, my favorite season on the year. There’s something about the longer days and interspersed holidays that makes me want to let loose and have a bit of fun!
I’m one of those people who likes to have my bases covered and be prepared. That means my purse, travel bag and beach/pool bag all have a little pouch that’s stocked with essentials for the season. Why not opt to carry a few necessities in hopes of avoiding moments that can be a complete buzz kill to summer fun, right? In my bag, you’ll always find at least two U by Kotex Click tampons, a little SPF coverage in the form of Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer in SPF 30 (because protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays at all times is a must), and the Neutrogena® Sheer Smooch Tinted Lip Oil to keep my lips hydrated and soft from day to night.
No matter what the summer occasion, perhaps a pool day or outdoor gathering with friends, I keep my bag stocked with these three essential items, which I picked up from my local Walmart. Since the aisles are well organized and easy to access, I can quickly grab my Neutrogena® goodies and swing over to the Walmart personal hygiene aisle for a box of U by Kotex Click.
For day-to-day summer activities, I often opt against my usual lipstick and instead go for an easy-to-swipe-on tinted look. When I spend a lot of time outside or in the water, my lips definitely feel the repercussions. The Sheer Smooch Sheer Lip Oil is the perfect addition to my summer makeup routine because it provides a sheer tint of color that’s moisturizing thanks to Vitamin E, camellia seed oil, sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil.
You won’t find me outside any day of the year, but most especially during summer, without an ample amount of SPF coverage. I’m not a heavy makeup wearer to begin with but here in Houston, the oppressive heat and humidity makes me want to wear as little makeup as possible. That’s why I love the Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer and wear it on a regular basis.
I’m all for a natural looking coverage, and this formula features Vitamins A, C, and E plus SPF 30 within a formula that provides coverage without the heaviness.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than a time of the month that arrives when you least expect it. It’s why I carry U by Kotex Click with me at all times. The small packaging is perfect for discreetly carrying along in my purse or wallet. They’re flexible and perfect for the active gal, which means swimming in the pool or all-day travel won’t be hampered by any discomfort.
I use the Sheer Smooch Sheer Lip Oil in Wink + Wave and the Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer in Light to Tan 30. Be sure to look for more colors in store! My local Walmart had plenty of options.
Trust me, keeping your beach/pool bag—and any other bag you’re using this season—fully stocked will make your life so much easier. With these 3 essentials to carry all summer long, you’ll be ready for whatever curve ball life throws at you. There’s no reason to have your summer fun hampered by easily avoidable situations. Trust me, you’ll thank me later!
