It's a special day! From now on, every 3rd Wed, I will be sharing my favorite all natural and organic beauty products with you. YAY!

If you are like me, you probably have a million excuses why not to get in a bathing suit...still have to lose those last 10 pounds, don't have a bathing suit that fits right (yes, I took care of that issue for you on Monday), too pale, too many stretchmarks or whatever the hell you can come up with?!

Today is the day when you will stop saying or even thinking those things! Say it with me - I am perfect and beautiful just the way I am! Great!

So, now that we got that out of the way, here are my 3 favorite beauty products to get you beach ready.

Of course, all products have never been tested on animals and are all natural because your skin is the largest organ and you wanna treat it awesome! 

I might be Mrs. Obvious, but remember, that what you put on your skin, actually goes in your body. Did you know that those conventional products can even alter your DNA? It's scary! 

So, let's just do your body the favor and kiss those conventional products good-bye and stock up on the good stuff!


Here are my three fav beach body beauty products:

First up is the Avalon Lavender Shaving Cream.



My skin is so crazy sensitive and this is the only shaving cream I can use without getting bumps and rashes all over my skin. It smells heavenly and calms your skin. Its just wonderful.


Next up is the J.R.Watkins Body Oil, Lavender




I mean, just look at that bottle! Isnt that the coolest design ever?

Its a small bottle (2 FL oz / 59ml), so its perfect to take with you because I know you are always busy and on the go. You can use it on your legs to make them look like a million bucks or just add a couple drops to the tips of your hair. Perfect!



And last but not least, Alba Facial Sunscreen SPF 30



This is muy importante! I know it's annoying but always wear sunscreen! You'll look younger and fresher for much longer than if you don't.

Of course, you can use this on yor whole body, it's just for super sensitive skin and doesnt clog pores, thats why its especially good for your pretty face. Just awesome!


Here is a pretty awesome deal for you - Save up to 20% on your first Soap.com order with code SOAP20AFF + Free 2 Day Shipping on $25!

Now that you are all ready to go to the beach, pack some snacks and put on that awesome new suit and off you go!
