How To Transform Your Beauty Regimen For Summer #VitaBeauty

FTC:  This post is sponsored by The Vitamin Shoppe in conjunction with Blog Meets Brand and I have been compensated for my participation. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The summer is here, and winter is a far far far thought in the past (unless you live in Game Of Thrones World in which winter is always coming- corny joke alert). I’ve been transforming my hair and skin care regimen for a bit to adjust to the new demands of the spring/summer, but now my beauty regimen needs a bit of adjustment as well. Winter can be extremely harsh on the skin and requires a different touch, and a whole slew of different products. With the summer here in full swing, it is time to transform your beauty regimen and Vitamin Shoppe is helping me do just that.


Vitamin Shoppe sent over a variety of curated products that fit your every day needs during the summer. The Vita Beauty box came with 6 full size products that show the wide assortment of vendors, vitamins, essential oils, carrier oils, serums that can be found online at Vitamin Shoppe or in 800+ stores.

What Came In The Box:

IMG_0036Coconut Oil: Every naturalistas secret weapon. I’m a coconut oil fanatic in the summer, more so than during the winter. Coconut oil hardens during the cold months as we know all too well. But once the warm weather sets in its all about that CoCo. You can use coconut oil for a variety of beauty purposes including eye makeup removal, cuticle moisturizing, at home pedicures, lip balm and and for several hair treatments.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum: I don’t have much experience with this serum but I’ve used it before in a facial moisturizer.  It is becoming increasingly popular in beauty for its moisturizing properties. This serum will help with moisturizing rejuvenating and restoring the skin. Vitamin Shoppe also has tons of other beauty products that are great on the skin and will help with the summer time glow up! You can head here to find out what else Vitamin Shoppe has in store for your summer skin. 

Avocado oil: I’ve been dying to try avocado oil since I became a naturalista. But I always relied on using the actual avocado since it was readily available in my local super market. Avocado oil hasn’t been easy to find and now that I know its in Vitamin Shoppe that makes it a lot easier to grab. I also love that this oil comes in a brown bottle to maintain the integrity of the oil quality. Avocado Oil can be used for moisturizing & revitalizing due to the presence of antioxidants.

Vitamin E: I usually have Vitamin E on hand in the oil form as it works  great on the skin and for under eye dark circles. I’ve never taken Vitamin E in pill form but I know in either way it works to block free radicals from the body, which play a large part in the aging process. Both versions can also be found in Vitamin Shoppe so its a win win.

Alpha Lipoic Acid Anti Aging Crème: This creme can be used daily after cleansing your face. Applying it to your face and throat using upward strokes, for best results. This creme helps seal in the extra moisture present on your skin after you’ve washed your face. Make sure to leave your face damp for best results as well.

Biotin: Biotin is another well known vitamin for us naturalistas as it is the “miracle” pill for hair growth. It is a member of the B-complex family of essential vitamins. Biotin is essential for carbohydrate, fat and amino acid metabolism. It is also essential for cellular energy production, and is sometimes used to support skin, hair and nails. Biotin supports nutrient metabolism.
