Are you enjoying the long weekend? I love the chance to get things done and to relax! Plus of course barbecues and fun!
For my favorites this week, I’ve chosen products that work with the fun and sun that this weekend brings:
Senteurs d’Orient NEW Oriental Gardenia Hammam Soap ($36 USD) — Moisturizing your skin is key, especially after your first time in the summer sun. Don’t leave for your Memorial day weekend beach vacation without the new handcrafted Oriental Gardenia Hammam Soap. Infused with a moisturizing blend of Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Glycerin, this Hammam Soap leaves skin looking dewy and feeling smooth.
What I think: I love the new scent of this soap on a rope! It’s very fresh and floral. Hanging this in my shower made my whole bathroom smell amazing. The soap itself is very hydrating and leaves skin so soft!

Keep your hair up and out of your face in the summer sun, while still looking chic with the Hairdo 23” Long Wave Pony ($59 USD) – which clips right over your own ponytail! This 23” Long Wave Pony features Tru2Life® heat-friendly synthetic hair that can be flat-ironed, curled or blown out, and has a long, smooth band of wrap-around hair that securely attaches with a hook-and-loop fastening strip for a look that’s seamless.
What I think: This is such a cute look for the summer. My hair is a lot shorter, so I have to get used to the weight. I think it’s perfect for going out, and would look nice for events like wedding.

KMS HAIRPLAY Sea Salt Spray ($23.50 USD) Get your beach waves ready with KMS HAIRPLAY Sea Salt Spray, infused with salt from the Dead Sea, this texturizing spray provides fullness, creates just-out-of-the-ocean texture, enhances waves and provides a matte finish. This easy to use spray can be applied to towel-dried hair and air dry.
What I think: Sea salt sprays are nice in the warm weather when I don’t want to style my hair. I just spray this one on damp hair and let it air dry. My hair is wavy without having to try! I also like the matte finish.

Burt’s Bees Baby Nourishing Mineral Sunscreen ($14.99 USD) –Treat your skin with the delicateness of a baby with Burt’s Bees Baby Nourishing Mineral Sunscreen. This lightweight, fast-absorbing formula spread evenly, leaving behind water-resistant, broad spectrum SPF30 protection, without thick or sticky white residue. Hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, this nourishing mineral sunscreen is gentle on vulnerable skin, while immediately improving skin hydration with wholesome natural ingredients, such as Beeswax, Vitamin E, and Coconut Extract.
What I think: This unscented sunscreen definitely isn’t only for babies! It’s really gentle on my sensitive skin. When I applied it for the first time, it seemed thick, but it spread well and absorbed fairly quickly. I like that it isn’t greasy and leaves my skin soft, but not shiny.

Store the Lavanila Laboratories Mini Sport Luxe Deodorant ($9 USD) in your beach bag for long lasting freshness all weekend long. This deodorant was created for life in motion. Lavanila’s proprietary, award-winning beta glucan technology is infused with SmartSport™ for high-performance defense and nourishment, and bursts with long-lasting vanilla breeze freshness to break down sweat molecules and deliver superior, invisible, all-natural odor protection.
What I think: This fresh little deodorant is so easy to take with you. The scent is amazing and it’s a great natural deodorant for all the sweating that comes with more activity and warmer weather! I usually need a clinical deodorant, but this works pretty well for me.
