Beauty Box 5 & Aveeno!


If you didn’t know already, we are an Aveeno family. That and I am a BIG fan of Beauty Box 5! There are a lot of great things to enjoy in Texas during the hot summer months like ice-cold Lemonade, Water rides and a Farmer’s tan but this month, I’m looking forward to my Beauty Box 5 the most! Why? Because while I’m sipping my lemonade at a water park and working on my tan, Aveeno ‘s NEW Protect + Hydrate SPF 30 Sunscreen is going to make sure I’m NOT going home with a farmer’s tan!

It’s always exciting to know about something before anyone else. (C’mon, I can’t be the only one!!) BUT what’s even more exciting is being given the thumbs up to tell the world! That’s why I’m so excited to let you all in on a super sneak peek for this months BB5! They’ve partnered with Aveeno to bring you what in my opinion is the BEST natural sunscreen you’ll ever try! But like all Aveeno products, this sunscreen has more than just one benefit for your skin.

DSCN0005Because Aveeno uses natural oat in many of their products, you get to by-pass the traditional SPF scent in favor of a light, powder-fresh clean scent that is perfect for all members of your family. Unlike ordinary sun protection, this lotion will also help to keep your skin hydrated. If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times when you’re outside you should be staying hydrated and drinking LOTS of water, especially in my neck of the woods. So, what don’t we apply that to the largest organ of our body, our skin! You might think you’re staying moist in the ocean or that chlorinated swimming pool, but trust me, you’re not! The salt and chlorine in the water is doing all it can to take away the precious moisture from your skin. With this sunscreen, your skin in protected from the sun and from drying out!

When applied, Aveeno’s Protect + Hydrate absorbs quickly, leaves a fresh scent and a nice, non-greasy feel. This formulation is also oil-free, non-comedogenic, dermatologist recommended (I’ll be honest, I’ve even used mine on my face, no worries there!) AND it’s sweat and water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. Which is longer than I’ll last in the heat come August!

Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about this sunscreen. I’m so excited for the next Beauty Box 5! If you haven’t already signed up be sure and check them out! For only $12 a month, you’ll receive 5 deluxe (and full size) samples of the latest and greatest in the beauty industry!
