So today I’ve invited my beautiful friend Jessica Morse for a little clean and safe beauty how to. She’s my go to girl for many, many beauty questions (sorry, Jess!). She’s like my personal guinea pig and consultant all in one (her words).

Jess’ passion is discovering truly clean and effective beauty products, and she shares them all on her amazing blog, Bare Beauty. She finds products that actually aren’t made up of unpronounceable and gross ingredients. And today she’s going to tell us a little bit about her 6  favorite summer products. Here are her tips!

BeautyCounter Protect All Over Sunscreen SPF 30 is a favorite of mine and I’ve tried virtually every nontoxic sunscreen on the market (read my annual nontoxic sunscreen post here). It doesn’t leave a chalky residue, it’s perfect for the whole family and it’s a great value. Cost: $26 for 4.8 oz.

 
Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 is perfect for a beach day as well as year round coverage and protection. This nontoxic, all-in-one BB cream treats, protects, moisturizes and primes the skin while offering moderate coverage. This has been a favorite of mine for years. Cost: $45 for 1.7 oz.

 
Ilia Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Shell Shock is the perfect bright, happy summertime color. Unlike a lipstick, this lip conditioner goes on sheer, but you can build up the color as you please. It will never, ever dry out your lips and it’s so natural you could put it on your baby – although that would be very strange and pageant-mom of you. Cost: $26.

 
W3LL PEOPLE Bio Bronzer replaced my Nars Laguna Bronzer a few years ago and I haven’t looked back since. It creates a perfectly natural sun-kissed look (No shimmer! No ruddiness!) that’s healthy inside and out, and it’s great for contouring as well. Cost: $23.

 
Kjaer Weis Radiance Highlighter is soooo good. The compact is gorgeous and refillable and this highlighter has absolutely no nasty ingredients, so it gets a 10 for eco-friendliness. But, what I love most is this product’s performance. It’s not too oily, shiny, sparkly or white, and it works on every single skin tone out there. The warm pearl color makes it perfect for faking perfect bone structure – it’s just genius. Cost: $56.

 
One Love Organics Coconut + Salt Mineral Body Lotion is the absolute best lotion for Summer. Organic coconut oil, Atlantic sea salt and organic aloe create the most lightweight, effective body lotion you’ll ever use – and it smells like the beach. Cost: $25 for 3.3 oz.

 

Thank you so much, Jess, for taking the time out of your day to put this together for us (she’s a busy mom here in Charleston, too!). I can’t wait to try out these products. That lip conditioner really is the prettiest pink, I’ve heard amazing things about the BeautyCounter sunscreen, and I’m super intrigued by the highlighter!

  2. What a fabulous post. I text Jess way to often with so many questions from what deodorant to use to what mascara. Bookmarking this list for sure!

  3. Thanks! I was looking for a new BB cream and ordered the one recommended here. Turns out its half of what I was paying for the Nordstrom brand I was using before. I also love that these products are ALL free from animal testing. Turns out what is better for animals is also better for us.
