Ingrid's Green Beauty Travel Faves
March break is sneaking up on us, which means it's nearly time to pack up a suitcase and hit the beach. Our founder Ingrid is just back from a family vacation in the sun, and she's going to share her favourite products that she never leaves home without. (And some snapshots from her trip too!)
I love this shade for toes. It's super fun and different and it gives any vacation a bright sunny start. A pedicure with this shade (and AILA's Prime and Shine) lasted well over a month, even with being in and out of pools and the ocean.
Ilia Beauty SPF Lip Conditioners
Ilia launched these SPF 15 Lip Conditioners and they have been flying off the shelves since we first got them. There’s Kokomo, a sheer muted mauve, Bombora, a sheer, easy red, and Balmy Rays, a soothing lip moisturizer. All of these look great on any skin tones and help keep lips nourished and protected.
Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo
I don't know about you but when I am on vacation I do not want to spend any time on my hair! I find the constant swimming and being in and out of the ocean helps to give it more bounce and texture than usual, but using this dry shampoo allowed me to go days without washing my hair and it still looked and smelled fresh. It also gives the hair more volume and texture!
U-Konserve Stainless Steel Straws and Flip and Tumble Reusable Bags
Plastic Straws and bags are having a devastating effect on our oceans. They are finding them inside sea life and washed up on shores around the world. Bringing your own straw and bags is an important thing to do on vacation. Many wait staff were thrilled to know why we said 'no' to plastic straws and that we brought our own option.
BKR Water Bottles and S'well Bottles
If you are going to a place that has safe drinking water, bring your own reusable water bottle. It will save you money, it's good for our planet, and when you use reusable water bottles you'll look pretty cool too!
Raw Elements & Suntegrity Sunscreen
These are a few of our absolute favourite sunscreens we used every day while we were away. The Raw Elements ECO Formula is EWG #1 rated, water resistant, reef safe, non whitening and easy to apply. It's our go-to sunscreen for body. Suntegrity's Tinted Sunscreen for face is a sheer tint packed with hydrating, nourishing ingredients and protect with SPF30. If you're in the sun for extended periods of time we recommend Raw Elements Eco Tint Stick. It's tinted and a great way to protect a young child or avid surfer's nose, cheeks and forehead. It's all natural and effective! Here is where you can find more natural sunscreen, have fun and stay safe while on vacation!
