Summer Prep Beauty Collection From Total Beauty Is Here!

Total Beauty Summer Prep Collection

Summer Beauty Products

I still can’t get over the idea that summer is actually here.  Well, not technically, but it was over 105 degrees here in the north San Diego area last week, so I’m saying it’s summer.  With the heat comes swimsuits, shorts, gauzy dresses and beauty products that had better keep up.  What worked in the chill of winter might not be the best thing in the sun of summer.

The Summer Prep Collection by, your beauty box of travel-friendly essentials to keep you glowing and gorgeous all summer long.

Bronzers and Hair

The headliners of this collection include Gleam by Melanie Mills Body Radiance, a bronzing makeup, moisturizer and luminizer for face and body created by the Emmy Award-winning makeup artist. It delivers the perfect lit-from-within glow that will make others think you spent a week sunbathing in Santorini. Also included are Kitsch Basics Hair Ties, gentle-on-your-tresses elastic hair ribbons in neutral colors like black, sand and ivory that work with every hair type.

Summer Beauty Product Deal

And the rest? Well, that’s a mystery. Just know that these products provide the jetsetter’s summer beauty experience, with skin-saving picks that hydrate, nourish and protect. The Summer Prep Collection is valued at more than $95, but you get all this for less than a third of the price — so you can island-hop in style.

MoonEssence Mojito Body Lotion Review

Moon Essence Mojito lotion

Winter skin for this pinup equals dry skin. No matter how much water I drink, my face and body are always on the verge of getting chapped. The only thing that helps me is a good body lotion.

MoonEssence‘s hydrating body lotion not only gets absorbed easily into my uber dry winter skin but it smells super yummy, too. The mojito scent is bright and fresh. A nice change to the heavy scents that are everywhere this season. A little bit of summer for my body. The rich body butter also comes in Bergamot Grapefruit, Lavender, Lavender Rose, Milk Honey, Mojito, Rosemary Mint, Unscented, and Ylang Ylang Lavender.

As an added bonus, this creamy, fresh smelling lotion that gets absorbed easily it is also FREE of Parabens, Mineral Oils, Petroleum, synthetics, and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. Ingredients: Includes Jojoba Oil and Organic Aloe and 100% pure Essential Oils, Vitamin E and Kosher Vegetable Glycerin.

Remember, just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you need to take a break from the SPF. MoonEssence is classified as SPF15 by manufacturer due to inclusion of combination of zinc oxide and titanium oxide.

In all, MoonEssence mojito body lotion is great for daily use to protect my skin from the sun, the wind and the cold, and smells good, too!

You can get your own bottle of MoonEssence Body lotion, as well as other great products, at was not paid for this post but did receive product to review. All editorial content is my own.
