After coming back from Palm Springs just last week, it’s been good to be home but I’m of course missing vacation!  I always make sure to keep my skin protected from the sun–especially when at the pool or in direct sunlight for an extended period of time.  But unfortunately I slipped up found myself with a bit of a sunburn even after my SPF 50.

Since I was traveling I didn’t have some of my post-sun exposure favorites with me but thankfully stopped at the local Walgreens to get a few of my tried and true skincare products for when I’ve gotten a bit too much sun!


I love makeup removing and facial cleansing wipes so much! They are so easy and such an essential in my everyday routine.  I picked up another pack of these Simple Micellar Wipes since I was running low in my ‘travel size’–meaning I don’t finish the pack at home, I’ll purposely put it aside when it gets down to about five remaining wipes and use that pack for travel.  After the sun, I use these to remove makeup, sunscreen residue, etc.  These even feel great down your neck and arms too for a cooling sensation against hot skin.  The micellar solution is really effective for removing dirt and oil so they are amazing for on the go.



After too much sun exposure, my skin wants as much moisture as possible!  I like this rich Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion because it feels rich on my skin but not greasy afterwards.  The cocoa butter scent will always keep me in a vacation state of mind too–it’s one of those scents that reminds me of various trips and enjoying days off!  I’ll slather on a generous amount of this lotion to hydrate my skin after the micellar wipes and let it sink in to replace moisture.  Such a good scent!



POND’S is such an iconic and classic skin care brand! My forehead takes the brunt of my sunburns so I always like to apply moisturizers that are very hydrating and creamy to get my skin repair underway.  I previously had tried a sample size of this POND’S Dry Skin Cream and loved how rich it felt on my skin.  This is rich enough to act as a repairing balm or overnight cream for mega hydration while you sleep.  I even like to apply this on my elbows, knees, anywhere that needs that extra big boost of moisture.

It’s always important to wear SPF this spring and summer but when sunburns happen, these help my skin recover and soothe.  From April 15-21, you can pick these favorites up and others from POND’s, Simple, and Vaseline with a buy 2 get 2,000 points deal at Walgreens! And so glad I was able to pop into a location while traveling!

    These sound like some great skin care products, not only for removing makeup, but for after sun exposure care. I’d be interested in Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion.

    I for one am guilty of getting too much sun in the summer months. I’ve tried several skin care products that boast that they’re effective for post-sun care, but they wind up not delivering. I’ll have to give these a look.

    I love Ponds. It’s such great stuff. It really is proof that you don’t have to drop a ton of money on skin care products.

    I bake in the sun all summer long. I need good after-care products to make sure my skin stays hydrated.

    If Pond’s can make my skin look as good as yours I am ready to get it now. I am glad the warm weather is hinting to come out here and I definitely need the SPF 50 to protect and moisterizers for after any sun exposure.

    I love my local Walgreen’s for everything from beauty products to sweet treats. Got to stock up on post sun products so I’m ready for all of our beach days.

    Pond’s products are my skin’s favorite! This is such a great deal! Love your beautiful photos!
