Top 10 Spring Break Beauty Essentials

*press sample, I bought this, affiliate links*
I’m going to pretend that I’m going somewhere warm to sip fruity rum drinks on the beach for Spring Break. I’ll try and ignore the fact that we still have feet of snow in some areas of the yard. If I was taking a warm vacation this spring, here’s what I’d bring!

Pacifica Makeup Removing Wipes, Deodorant Wipes, and Hand and Body Lotion Wipes – Pacifica has outdone themselves with these genius wipes. Gentle, paraben, sulfate, and aluminum free, these vegan wipes are perfect for a beach tote, purse or diaper bag.


First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream, Eye Duty Triple Remedy Overnight Balm, and Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser are safe for the most sensitive skin, free from artificial fragrance, parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. The Milk Oil cleanser is a great makeup remover, or gentle morning cleanser. The sleeping cream contains peptides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, colloidal oatmeal and rich butters. If you have parched skin from a day in the sand and surf, this is the perfect nighttime moisturizer to replenish and repair your skin. The eye balm is a must have, and my favorite eye moisturizer. Meant to be used around the entire eye area, this eye cream is rich with shea butter, feverfew extract, hyaluronic acid and algae extract. First Aid Beauty claims the balm will improve skin elasticity, firm and smooth the look of fine lines, and protect the delicate undereye area. I use this morning and night, and it works well under makeup.

Alaffia Everyday Coconut Face Toner this gentle spray toner is convenient, hydrating and soothing. Contains neem, papaya leaf extract and coconut water.

Whish Coconut Milk Shave Cream with hair inhibitor – this creamy coconut shave cream is super soothing from the shea butter, omega 3, coconut and jojoba oils. It also contains chapparel extract to inhibit hair growth. All Whish products are organic and paraben, sulfate, DEA, TEA and petrochemical free.

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer – Just because you are being a lush on vacation, doesn’t mean your skin has to look like it. This lightweight silicone-free primer is infused with coconut water and a probiotic ingredient to nourish and brighten skin while it prolongs makeup wear.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream – I know you’re tired of hearing me talk about this, but if I had to use only one makeup product for the rest of my life, it would be this. It’s skincare, foundation, sun protection, perfection in a tube basically!!

Paula’s Choice Blush It On Face Contour palette – You won’t need to bring separate blush, bronzer, and highlight because this palette has it all. A brightening highlight shade, bronzer, and 4 blush shades: Delicate Coral, Dusty Rose, Peony, and Soft Mauve. Since receiving this palette with my Paula’s Choice skin care, I haven’t wanted to use anything else. I love having all these options in one handy palette. Oh, and if you click the Paula’s Choice link, you can save 20% on the Blush It On palette! Check out the links below to see what my blogger friends chose for their top Spring break beauty essentials!

    I’m curious about the deodorant wipes!

    • Amber

      They are really handy! I think depending on how sweaty you are, you might be able to get away with using just these. Personally, I can’t find a natural deodorant that works. I have to use a regular deodorant, but love these for freshening up!

  • marciaf

    The Paula’s Choice palette would be a great choice. I just got the Pacifica wipes and plan to try the underarm ones tomorrow. They look interesting.

    Recently I went to a wedding, sat down… And immediately realized that my deodorant was going to fail me that night! I had to keep my arms at my sides the whole evening. I wish I had had some deodorant wipes on me! Such an awesome idea- especially for those hot summer days ahead!
