Fun In The Sun – My Labor Day Must Haves

This this labor day weekend we are heading to the lake to enjoy some fun in the sun with the family. As I was packing for our trip and listening to 80’s Super Hits (yes I am old) Ha! I found that I always throw the same 3 things in my suitcase I can’t live without when I travel. In a previous post I stated how I was very low maintenance and don’t buy many products for myself. But if I like something to keep buying it repeatedly then that means its good and its worth sharing with you.  These are a few things that I MUST have with me, especially if I am going to be out having fun in the sun! All of these items can be found on Amazon, Murad and Trust the Bum.


Murad Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++

This stuff is awesome, and to be honest with you I know I would not have gone out and bought this for myself. I happened to receive it from my sister as a gift so I have her to thank!  Invisiblur is a primer with SPF protection (SPF 30) that help combat signs of aging.  I smooth Invisiblur over my neck and face and let it set for a while before I put any makeup on. When I do finally put my makeup goes on, I noticed it goes on so much smoother and creates a more flawless look, and it does not feel greasy under my make up, which I love! Also a little of this goes a long way, so the bottle will last you a while.

From the MURAD website:

• 71% saw fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
• 94% saw improved smoothness and texture.
• 100% invisible SPF 30 protection


SUN BUM Signature SPF 50 Face Stick / Tinted

A year ago our family went to Jamaica for vacation. Before our trip I needed to stock up on more beach vacation essentials, like sunscreen.  I was looking for a really good facial sunscreen for myself and the kids, that would last and not come off right when we hit the water. While shopping for my goodies on Amazon, I stumbled upon this little gem. I was a little curious about the whole “tinted” thing, but I ended up LOVING it and basically just used this instead of makeup! You can get it not tinted as well if you would rather have it. I loved that it stated it would not bleed into your eyes and would not come off during rigorous activities in the water.  Sun Bum is used and trusted by many lifeguard and beach rescue organizations throughout the U.S., including the Hawaiian Water Patrol, the North Shore Lifeguard Association, and the Eastern Surfing Association.

MURAD Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA+++

I found this moisturizer years ago when I was on the hunt for something that would help with aging, as well as help with the occasional adult breakouts. This moisturizer is very light and absorbs fast on my face and does not leave a greasy feeling, which I hate. It also hydrates without causing blemishes and helps against early signs of aging with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.  Murad’s Anti-Aging moisturizer contains “Kombucha Defense”, which is supposed to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

From MURAD website

  • Kombucha Defense derived from a nutrient-rich Black Tea Ferment, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection helps prevent sun damage linked to the formation of wrinkles and dark spots.
  • Oil Control Complex helps keep pores clear
