Summer Clean Beauty must haves.

Summer: when days get longer and hotter.

If you want to enjoy to the fullest the upcoming summer days, protection and staying hydrated are a must!

With this being said, I would like to recommend you the perfect clean beauty trio that will help your skin stay healthy, protected, and hydrated.


1. Sheer Zinc Sunscreen

by Babo Botanicals

  • vegan, organic, nontoxic
  • won’t leave any residue
  • calms redness
  • no irritation
  • fragrance-free

You can rest assured that no harmful chemicals are going in/on your skin with this one. This SPF 30 sunscreen will protect the whole family (yes, it’s good for babies, kids, and grown ups too). Also, it’s water and sweat resistant.

I personally have sensitive skin, so this spray is a must for me if I want to avoid any type of irritation or sunburn.

2. Tinted Facial Moisturizer

by Raw Elements

  • natural, organic
  • eco-friendly
  • SPF 30
  • water resistant
  • nutrient-rich sunscreen

This one is my go-to whenever I go to the pool and I don’t want to wear makeup but I still want some coverage/protection and a sun kissed look. The fact that this facial moisturizer is tinted: brilliant!

Get it HERE.



3. Cool Aloe Mist

by Farmasthetics


  • all natural ingredients
  • sustainable
  • nontoxic
  • calms burning skin
  • detoxifies skin

To complete the combo, this mist will keep your skin hydrated. Especially if you like to spend more hours soaking in the sun (guilty!), this aloe mist will calm any discomfort of dry, overexposed skin.

What’s in my clean beauty travel bag.

Because we are an international/multicultural family: my husband is from Mexico, I am from Romania, and our daughter is born in America (and we are expecting a baby boy -yey, that will be born also here), we get to travel quite a lot.



Romania, Mexico, United States have been some of our most recent destinations. It can be overwhelming at times (especially when traveling with babies/toddlers). But we love to travel!

Over the years of traveling I noticed that my packing habits have changed a lot. It’s not just the fact that before I used to carry with me so many unnecessary stuff. The biggest difference I saw was with the items in my travel makeup/skincare bag.


From lots of makeup (I was always ending up not using all the pile I was traveling with)

to: fewer items (but still toxic for my skin)

to: clean, natural, nontoxic products.

And I am so happy with this change!


Without more further ado, here is what I take with me:

*Note: I take with me all the products listed below. I have 2 travel bags:

A. one with travel sized products (that I can take in my carry-on and use when needed -especially if we have connection flights and we need to spend more time in the airports).

B. one with full size products that I will use when we arrive to our destination (this one will go in the plane).
