Scorching Summer Essentials

It’s hot. I’m not complaining only making a sweltering observation.

When the heat is unbearable these are my go to summertime products when I’m in a non-air conditioned subway car, or if I’m on vacay, or at the beach:

Kaia Juicy Bamboo Natural Facial Cleansing Cloths

These are cruelty-free/non-toxic/biodegradable and are totally easy to throw in your purse, carry-on, or in a beach bag.

Evian Facial Spray

Life saver.Period. Refreshing & Revitalizing.

Hand Sanitizer

Any will do but, I prefer an organic unlike Dr. Bronner’s Magic (pictured below)

Also fair trade and chocked full of essentials. When we sweat hand sanitizer kills the bacteria that causes odours. Great for both underarms and feet too. Ideal for cleaning your hands after your vegan ice cream dripped down the cone.

MAC Blot Film

This is Elena’s (the makeup artist sister who knows) favourite blot brand. Most brands use blot paper covered in powder for drying but, MAC Blot Film is a thin film and it is the material that is drying not any added powders that can make your makeup feel heavy in hot weather. Lightly dab the film on oily areas of your face (T – zone) for a mattifying effect. Good for a quick cleanup before heading into the office or, on your wedding day (for both brides and grooms).


Lip Balm

Keep your lips moisturized. I use EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm. It is Organic and Paraben, Gluten, and Petrolatum free. If you burn easily I suggest using a balm with SPF.


COOLA Sport SPF 50

Sunscreen is a must for summer. I absolutely detest heavy, greasy, white sunscreen smeared all over my face. This is why I use COOLA Sport SPF 50 mineral sunscreen in Citrus Mimosa. It’s white but not heavy or greasy. It is crafted with 70% organic ingredients and gives you full protection.











Beach Bag

Any fun printed variety will do.


Soft and plush.


Don’t get dehydrated folks. My fave is Aqua Panna in a glass bottle.
