Happy WEDNESDAY, everyone, and congrats on making it halfway through the week! I’m leaving for our beach condo this weekend, so I stopped by Walmart earlier this week to stock up some old and new beauty favorites for my trip. I was specifically looking for products that would work well at the beach, so you’ll see a lot of products to achieve a glowy/dewy look and even some glowy sunscreen 🙂 The best part is that these are all *so* affordable! Read on to see what I packed for our beach trip…
I blogged about this product earlier in the summer – this is an absolute STAPLE in my beach bag. Whenever I swim in the ocean, I immediately spray this leave-in detangler in my hair and brush it through with this brush. If I don’t do this and wait until I get home to shower, it is chaos – the salt water makes my hair difficult to work with and it takes FOREVER to get out all of the knots and tangles. Plus this leave-in detangler works as a conditioner and makes my hair soft and manageable.
I’ve heard so many good things about this lip plumper and have been excited to try it. Right off the bat, you feel a minty tingling when you first apply it, as it is working to plump up your lips! I bought this in the “bare pink” color and it has a high gloss shine for a really youthful and fresh pout.
Whenever I’m at the beach, I want my skin to look dewy and fresh! Enter the L’Oreal Lumi Glotion Highlighter. You can either mix it in with your foundation or use a drop on your cheekbones (on top of your makeup) for a highlighting effect. I tested it out on my hand yesterday and LOVE the super creamy texture. I’ll keep you guys updated on this one!
SO EXCITED to use this at the beach! This dewy coconut mist is a spray that you can use either under your makeup or on top. It’s not a setting spray, bu but you could use it on top of your usual setting spray. I tested it yesterday for these photos and it smells like coconut, feels so refreshing and also leaves behind a youthful, dewy glow.
I bought this Coppertone sunscreen to try as an alternative to the mineral sunscreens I’ve been using all summer. I LOVE my mineral sunscreen, but they do leave behind a white cast on your skin that doesn’t look the cutest on the beach. This Coppertone sunscreen is actually blended with minerals, but it doesn’t make your skin look white and it’s free of parabens, PABA, phthalates, and oxybenzone. In all of the reviews, people are raving about how glowy and beautiful their skin looks after using this sunscreen!
I thought I would end on a tried-and-true favorite: this Leave-In Conditioner. I actually already have a bottle at my beach condo but it’s getting low! The beach is always hard on my hair (sand, salt, sun and wind can wreak havoc), so I apply this product after I get out of the shower and it leaves it feeling really soft and conditioned, but doesn’t weigh it down!
If you’ve picked up any awesome products from Walmart lately, let us all know in the comments! xoxo
