I grew up being outside a lot – playing soccer my whole life meant that my skin was usually getting beaten up all year around in Texas and especially during the summer. After 3 years in Chicago, I thought my skin had forgotten how to soak up the sun the way that it used to.

This year I’ve been outside almost every weekend of the summer (woo hoo!) – a welcome change from some really mild ones in years past. Not only has it made for more opportunities to wear cute little rompers like these, but it also means my skin has been getting a lot more sun than usual.

Maybe it’s just growing up, but I’m so much more aware of protecting my skin. I was telling my mom recently that I would wear sunscreen everyday if I could find one that didn’t make me feel oily and sticky, and low and behold.. I found one!

Soleil Toujours is a natural sunscreen brand that captured my attention with their clean and modern packaging and rave reviews. After testing it out for a few days, I was instantly hooked. Their products use the most advanced mineral-based sunscreen actives and are infused with powerful anti-oxidant and anti-aging ingredients for a multi-level defense that protects, corrects and boosts the health of skin… sign me up!

The spray is my favorite and I’ve been using it on my arms and legs even when I go to work or know I’ll be outside for any amount of time. Raise your hand if you’ve ever gotten a weird tan line from missing spots? (Me!) The best thing about it is that it goes on white so that you can see where you’re applying, but it dries completely clear and feels weightless. Just be sure to apply in a bathroom (and not on your mother’s suede couch).

We’ve decided to send a lucky reader some products to try out on their own, just as a thank you for following along and to introduce you to how wonderful the products are! Simply enter below for your chance to win! The giveaway ends Sunday 8/16 @ midnight. Good luck and Happy Friday!

    I love the idea that it goes on white so you can tell where you may have missed some sunscreen!

    This is a perfect summer outfit. I am religious with sunscreen, I burn inside the car sometimes!

    The romper is super cute!!
    Also my mom always tells me to wear sunscreen every single day too, no matter what I’ll be doing that day. It’s hard to actually do that, but maybe I should switch to using a spray instead of a cream so it’ll be faster to apply…

    As I was scrolling through my “Explore Posts” on Instagram I stopped scrolling when I saw your romper. It is absolutely stunning and it features my favorite colors! I got super excited as I was looking through your other posts and noticed you were doing a giveaway. I was even more excited when I realized it was skincare related! I moved to Virginia Beach this past year and although living at the beach the has been amazing, I am in the sun a lot more than I used to be. I am starting to notice subtle lines and wrinkles around my eyes and being in my early twenties I have already started my anti-aging regimen. Something I am way more conscious about is sunscreen, especially when I am at the beach. I have naturally oily skin that is prone to breakouts especially when I wear oily, non-breathable products. I have struggled finding a brand that is not super oily I would love to be able to try out these products from Soleil Toujours!
