Friday Finds: What's In My Pool Bag

Yessssss- BIG sigh of relief over here..... The kids are {almost!} out of school and we will be living at the pool while we are in town.  Pool days are the best days.  I couldn't spend near as much time there without some of my favorite products for me and the kids.  I am fair and tend to breakout so the products {below} for your face are great for combination skin.  And yes, I use them all at once.  You can never be too careful especially about the skin on your face. 

This is my "face" routine for days that I am heading to the pool.  After washing my face I apply the Elta facial sunscreen all over.  Then I apply my daily powder.  After that I add the 2 Peter Thomas Roth powdered sunscreens below.  Then bronzer one I put on just like I do my daily bronzer.  
This works great on your face, scalp {on your part} and ears.  Just remember to reapply after getting in the pool or sweating.
Lastly I apply this Supergoop setting spray to my face and scalp while I'm at the pool.  It feels great and cools me off.
Face Sunscreen
If you want a little color on your lips and cheeks the Supergoop Lip & Cheek Treat is beautiful on every skin tone.  This is a great little trio to keep in your pool bag. 
Lip + Cheek Treat
I am obsessed with this sunscreen.  The Pina Colada and Coconut scents are my favorite.  It smells like being on a tropical island and drinking a frozen drink out of a pineapple.  
Spray Sunscreen
When my skin is feeling extra dry, I love the way this sunscreen oil feels.  
Sunscreen Oil
This is great for your lips also.  If you don't want any color - this stuff is perfect.  
Lip Sunscreen

I have been using Blue Lizard for my kids since Hollins was a baby.  It's thick and works great and was recommended by my dermatologist and the kids pediatrician.  I have tried using others but I really think this is best for protecting my children's fair skin.  
Kids Sunscreen
For reapplying after kids have been in the pool, I love Babyganics. It's a lot lighter than the Blue Lizard but still works well.
Kids Spray Sunscreen
 I try to wear a hat in the sun most days but some times I forget or I just don't feel like it. I always protect my scalp but I am also trying out a few sprays to protect my hair from the sun.  Here they are.  I'll let you know how they work for me. 
Leave-in Hair Treatment

Coconut Water Treatment

To get the chlorine, sunscreen and anything else out of mine and the kids hair, I use the Fairy Tales Lifeguard Clarifying Shampoo.  During the school year we use the Fairy Tales Lice Prevention shampoo.  In the summer months we switch it up, since we are outside so much.  If we don't, Nat's hair {especially} will start to turn green from the pool! 
Clarifying Shampoo

This correction cream for my hair is terrific for keeping my hair soft and moisturized.  During the summer months I use it twice a week instead of my usual conditioner.  
Hair Repair Cream  

As I said on Instastories, I have been reading a lot about Pre-Shampoo Treatments for your hair.  These are the two I ordered from Target.  I like the Burt's Bees the best so far but I have only used each of them one time.
