Dear Vacation, I miss you like the deserts miss the rain, like a fat kid misses cake. Love, M

Cabo was so much better than I imagined.  SO MUCH.

I might even go as far as to say that it was the best vacation we have been on.  It was perfectly luxe/relaxing/easy. Neither of us got sick or sunburned (insert halleluiah chorus here.)

We sat by the pool and watched whales.  Drank Pina Colada’s for breakfast and took naps:)

The only unfortunate thing about vacation is that the travel bug bit me again before we even got home:)  I am happy that we have a few trips coming up-hopefully this will help to satiate my hunger for more travel.  Stand by for a mini trip to Palm Springs and a bucket list trip to Fiji:)  The next 60 days will prove to be a challenging test of patience.

Let’s talk vacation products!

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

I was nervous about this product having not used it prior to this vacation.  I already use a SPF 30 daily.  But I knew I needed to amp it up for vacation.  SPF 50 was non-negotiable.   I loved loved LOVED this product.  As I mentioned in a previous post I HATE LAYERING PRODUCT ON MY FACE.  I HATE IT.  I hate the feeling of having product on my face at all.  This lotion turns to powder when you apply it.  I love that it becomes nearly undetectable at application.  WHAT?  A sunscreen you can’t feel or see??  YEAH RIGHT!

This stuff was amazing.  It has a really light powdery scent, and worked perfectly!



Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Light-Weight Body Lotion SPF 30

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps ‘Light-Weight’ Body Lotion – SPF 30

“This lightweight, readily-absorbed body lotion helps protect skin from external damage with SPF 30 protection, leaving it soft and smooth all day long. Formulated with antioxidant and skin-smoothing ingredients derived from nature. Helps skin maintain its natural moisture balance. Clean, non-greasy feel.”

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

I also hate to feel my lotion after I apply it.  This is a major problem with sunscreens.  I watch my SHH apply the spf 10000 and it makes my skin crawl to see the spray just sitting on top of his GINGER skin.  Seriously, makes my skin crawl.  I hate that.

I also hate that when I kiss my groom all I taste is sunscreen.  BLECH!  Seriously, gross.  So much for vacation make out sessions:)

I loved loved loved this sunscreen because it made my skin SUPER DUPER SOFT, it was totally absorbed almost immediately and worked PERFECTLY!  NO SUNBURN!  And I loved the scent, just a tiny bit of coconut.
