** FREE GIVEAWAY CONTEST BELOW POST! **
To my dearest:
It’s Ophelia! Yes! I’m back from Orlando! I hope you all enjoyed Christina’s sharing of New York while I was gone! She’s super talented so I hope to have her share more with you all in the future! So what’s new?! Well, in Orlando, I had a blast visiting Universal Studios and having my favorite spa and pool days. The weather was gorgeous there as well – but maybe just a bit too sunny.
Luckily, I was well prepared. If you know me, you will know my go-to sunscreen for my face is Clarins. So of course I had that with me. However, I knew that this trip to Orlando would result in hours of blazing under the sun from pool days to waiting in hour long lines at the theme parks. I had to be more well prepared than my usual sunscreen for the face. After all, sun has that horrifying power to age your skin in no time when being over exposed!
This is where Coola Suncare saved the day! I brought along with me, their travel set and it had absolutely everything I ever needed without having to worry it won’t pass TSA. After all, that was what I feared most.
Their travel set has sun care for your skin fully covered. It comes with an all-over body spray, face moisturizer with SPF, lip balm with SPF, and a recovery after sun lotion that can be used on the face and body! That was all the essentials I actually needed!
I mentioned in my previous travel post to Miami, that I fear bringing sunscreen on my carry-on as I’m afraid of having issues with TSA. This spray in their travel set is exactly TSA approved size at 3.4 oz. It smells great being naturally scented and is water resistant up to 80 minutes! So bring on the pools, beaches, and water rides! It has up to 70% certified organic ingredients and is infused with anti-aging antioxidants. How awesome is that? I found this spray to be moisturizing and not overly sticky, which is a plus!
Now, now. I do love my Clarin’s. However, that one is usually what I use on the go as a mere sun screen instead of a moisturizer. This here, however, I use as a moisturizer. In the morning, I would apply this as a day time moisturizer. It acts as an SPF base for my face. I love that it is delicate on my semi-sensitive skin and the formula is once again not too sticky on the face. It makes applying make up on top way easier when needed. It also boasts the same specs as the former sunscreen spray with the certified organic ingredients, antioxidants, and being water resistant.
Did you know that your lips need utmost sun protection as well? The skin on the lips is actually very delicate and probably is the portion that needs the most sun care on your face. It’s also the most neglected. We often times have foundation or BB cream with SPF in it, so we worry just a tad less when we forget to apply sunscreen on our face. However, with lips, there are few products that contains SPF. I love moisturizing my lips with this Liplux and then applying lip color on top!
Last but not least, we have this awesome after-sun lotion. It’s good for both face and body and the formula is specifically designed for after sun exposure. It contains agave, aloe vera, lavender oil, rosemary extract, and sunflower oil. The ingredients are natural, moisturizing, and reliefs sunburns. I used this one as a night cream during my trip.
Overall, I loved all the products from COOLA and definitely recommend it. I love the travel set, because of its convenience. It’s also a super good deal. You can get all the goodies for the price of $40 USD , which is a steal for the amount of products you get in the set. I also love the SPF 30 and 50 range for their products because anything higher than that albeit lasting longer between reapplication, actually has more chemicals in it.
And you peeps are in luck! Because, I paired with COOLA to give away a free travel set along with free sunnies with SUNGLASS.LA! Giveaway contest details are now LIVE on this INSTAGRAM post! It runs until 8/17/17 7PM EST! So don’t wait and enter NOW!
For reference, I am 5 feet 2 inches. I typically wear XS/S or 0-4 for apparel and 6.5-7.5 for shoes.
