4th of July beauty

So it’s America’s holiday- the 4th of July.  Even though I’m notorious for having catastrophically awful July 4ths, I’m still feeling some 4th of July beauty.  Hey, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right?  America, f–k yeah.

Farmhouse Fresh Bourbon Bubbler Body Scrub -This scrumptious body scrub uses real Kentucky whiskey, brown sugar, vitamin E and rice bran oil to exfoliate your body clean.  It’s especially good for helping self-tan lotions to stick on.

JASON Naturals Quit Bugging Me! Natural Insect Repellant Spray -Truth be told, Los Angeles doesn’t have many bugs…but back in New York, you can’t leave the island of Manhattan unless you’re armed with some insect repellant.  I remember my mom dousing me with other chemical versions and always hating the smell and feeling sticky and gross.  JASON’s version is a natural alternative to harsh chemical bug repellants and uses a natural combo of Geranium, Soybean and Coconut Oils that not only keep bugs from biting but also leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.  Plus, it’s DEET, PABA and Paraben-free.  And the bottle is adorable, just sayin…

Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry Sunscreen – The all-over face and body powder helps to protect against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF 30 and even has a water-resistant rating.  Skin Cancer Foundation approved, this sunblock is a physical, not chemical, block that works instantly in the sun.  As an added bonus, the packaging has a mirror on the cap so you can check yourself out, while applying your sun protection.

Sonia Kashuk Self-Tanning Towelettes for Body – I’m a serial self-tanner and I’ve tried it ALL.  I love the easy convenience of these towelettes…they’re great for traveling or even a quickie job or touch up.  The color is natural and the infamous self-tanner smell is barely there.
