Stevie’s comments: 
I know this line and it’s top-notch. I love how MyCHELLE has put together a really large sun screen collection. There are even dry products that you can dust on your skin so that you don’t have to be worrying about  feeling gooey with liquid sunscreen until it dries.

2. Hand Sanitizers Galore:

  • Guru Nanda 12 Pack Hand Sanitizer is an ideal spritzer to keep moisturized, clean hands on the go? It’s a 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer, perfect everyday companion because it is enriched with true lavender essential oil and coconut oil. It is made in the U.S. and ships from California.  It’s manufactured in an FDA-regulated cGMP certified facility. It kills most germs but is still soft on your hands. Plus, it comes in a 12-pack so that you can last the week! Put some in your desk drawer at work, make sure you have at least one in your car, a couple for your favorite handbags.

Stevie’s comments: 

If your friends like your scent when you use it, point out that the lavender is the “real deal” and comes from  Bulgaria’s mountains and hills.  The aroma isn’t synthetic but the real deal. Give your friends a spritz of it and they will be addicted too!

  • NOSHINKU is a new breed of hand sanitizer that marries hygiene and skincare, moisturizing and soothing hands even as it kills germs. (99% kill rate on germs with organic sugarcane alcohol and conditions skin with moisturizing organic botanicals.


Stevie’s comments: 

This is an elegant formula features premium ingredients (including bergamot for a gender-neutral scent which means guys can easily use this. The packaging is really unique and I like the styling of it for it’s modern qualities. The best part is that the brand is FDA registered. The USP Grade awarded to Noshinku  means that the product meets or exceeds requirements of the United States Pharmacopeia for  acceptable food, drug, or medicinal use. (That means it works!)  Noshinku  also contains 70% alcohol in line with CDC recommendation to use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. This is a product that is both functional but also a luxe beauty product suitable for him or her!


  • Aú Natural Skinfood:
    This clean line out of New Zealand that has formulated a fantastic On the Go Brush On Foundation with SPF – it’s a brush-on mineral powder with broad-spectrum SPF 25 sunscreen. This product has natural ingredients and is oil-free & non-comedogenic!


Stevie’s comments 

  • This is a great brush-on dry product that will really get you through the day. It reduces redness and is easy to apply.  A brush-on powder sunscreen is one of my favorite sunscreen products.  It’s super-easy to reapply particularly on your face and hands.  It come in 3 different colors! TIP: You can mix some of this powder with a small amount of lotion to create your own “faux tan” look (if you buy a darker color). You can also use the powder + moisturizer trick to give you a fast update on sunblock plus keep your skin soft and hydrated too!


  • Quickys Body Wipes are perfect for road trips, post-gym, pre-happy hour, camping trips, long days at the office, first and last dates (womp womp). No matter what situation is, Quickys have you covered with their cooling, refreshing, textured wipes that quickly removes sweat, smell, and dirt in just a swipe. These individually packaged towelettes feature natural aloe and cucumber extracts and are paraben-free!
    Use the deep cleansing, exfoliating-textured side first, and follow with a swipe of the smooth side for the ultimate cleanse.
    The extra-large wipes are portable and TSA-friendly and come 15 to a box for $15. L

Stevie’s comments 

This is a fabulous product to have in your bag, your gym bag, your desk, your car or to be anywhere. Think of being at Disneyland and walking so much in the summer sun and you are so sweaty that it’s uncomfortable. Take a Quickys wipe into the restroom and towel off. You will feel a 100% better. It’s also perfect if you hit your car after work or after s shopping for groceries and the car is ridiculously hot.  Even with the AC going, it will take a while to  beat the heat in the car and by the time you get home, you will be hot and sweaty. NO need to  squeeze in a shower. Grab one of these wipes and you will feel  much cooler,  cleaner and relaxed!  Talk about a winner! I wish I had a couple of these after my pre-July 4 grocery excursion.  My car was 85 degrees inside!
