My Favorite Vegan & Cruelty-Free Beauty Products for Summer [+ Giveaway!]
Breaking news: it's officially summer, people (even though I think most of us have been pretending it has been for weeks now)! That means I've switched up the ol' beauty routine for the new season. Warmer temperatures are always great but, as we know, with them comes some downsides -- such as sunburns, frizzier hair, and melting makeup. That's where specialized summertime beauty products come in 😎 Scroll down to see some of my newest vegan and cruelty-free favorite finds - and to enter the supplement giveaway!
Made of a jersey knit and cloth combination, these amazing towels help to get rid of frizz while also decreasing drying time and damage. They're perfect for at-home use or to throw in your gym and beach bags.
I thought finding a cruelty-free sunblock would be difficult but then the vegetarian brand Alba came into my life. This sunscreen is so much less sticky (and less stinky) than the typical kinds. Most importantly though, it contains no parabens, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances and it's coral reef safe!
I've discussed Sho Balance previously (read more here) and it is still my very favorite probiotic. I've most recently tried Sho Energy+, and it is so helpful for fighting off my midday fatigue.
*Luckily for LunaVida readers, you all have a chance to win your very own Sho Nutrition product - and there will be two winners! Enter via the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post.

For all those super sweaty summer days that have our hairstyles falling flat and our roots looking extra greasy, these two products are Godsent. The hairspray helps keep pesky flyaways at bay, and oily roots are made squeaky clean, thanks to the dry shampoo. You can even purchase them at Vitamin Shoppe and VitaCost!
I've talked about Pacifica (which you can find in-store and online at Target and Ulta) quite a few times. This lip product is one of my very top picks, though! It smells (and tastes) delicious and leaves your lips super soft.
Before being introduced to this brand, I had never tried sunless tanning products before due to the fact I was afraid of looking like our current "president". This is not the case whatsoever with Tanceuticals! I've tried both the body lotion and foam formulas. I honestly can't say which is better though, because they are both fantastic - especially when applied with this mitt. (The glove really does make all the difference in making sure it doesn't streak, in my opinion.) I tend to use the foam on my legs and lotion on my upper body.
