How to get sunkissed hair without the sun

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.

Being blessed with skin that burns, I don't like to spend an absurd time in the sun, but I love to have sun kissed hair. When searching for something that would give me my "dream hair" year around, I looked into salon lightening, diys, and different products. After trying things that didn't work, I came across SunIn. I figured that since it had been around since the 70s, I would give it a try. 

Oh my... it not only helped, but is now my go-to for natural highlights!

About the product

Like I said, SunIn has been around since the 70s and is made to make you look like a sun goddess with sun kissed hair. It comes in two scents- Lemon Fresh and Tropical Breeze and is for blonde to brunette hair. Since SunIn is alcohol-free, it does not damage/dry out my hair; plus the formula has an advanced conditioning system which includes botanical extracts and special illuminators that give my hair an extra dose of shine. 

How to use

SunIn gives me the same natural highlights I would get from the sun - only faster and not with all the burning or salon pricing! It is heat activated and can be used two ways: in the sun or with a blow dryer. Personally, I like to use a blow dryer, since I am trying to avoid the sun and all.

It is also really easy to use: 
1. Spray all over damp hair & comb to evenly distribute the product
2. Blow dry hair or sit in the sun
3. Enjoy your beautiful hair

After using the blow dryer, I use my flat iron to help with the heat activation and to smooth out my hair.

I had to do a before and after picture to show you all why I love SunIn so much... In the picture, you can see the SunIn brought out the natural reddish tint of my hair and lightened my roots. 

My hair also smelled like summer- I used the tropical breeze scent. My hair didn't feel dry or damaged, it actually felt soft and hydrated.

Here's another view

Overall Experience

Truthfully, I highly recommend SunIn to anyone wanting to lighten their hair. I LOVE IT! Not only is is easy to use, it is safe and effective, it is cheap- meaning that you don't have to pay salon prices, AND you can buy it at Walmart for under $5. Um, yeah, I think you should grab some when you are out grocery shopping next!!!

Have you ever used SunIn? What did you think?

current beauty favorites

Can anyone else believe that it's already almost halfway through June? Yeah, me neither! But all in all, I have to say that life has been going rather well, at least in my neck of the woods. Besides Summer coming in with a sledge hammer, my little one finished school, I started a new job, and of course, I found some great beauty products. 

So today, I wanted to share the five beauty products that I discovered, and let's just say, they are now in my HG beauty arsenal. 

OUAI Leave In Conditioner // $26

What is it? Going by a new name, the Leave in Conditioner is a smoothing spray that moisturizes and has enhanced heat protection. 

Why do I love it? Free of parabens and sodium chloride, and of course, animal testing, this leave in conditioner has really changed my hair. I use it after every shower and my hair stays so soft, clean, and free of flyaways. 

btw, if you are interested in trying OUAI, but don't know what to buy, Sephora has a great little travel kit

FARMACY Sleep Tight // $48

What is it? A lightweight solid balm that melts into a oil-gel that quickly absorbs into the skin to lift, firm, fight the signs of aging, and hydrates your skin.

Why do I love it? Quiet simply, my face feels ah-mazing when I wake up in the morning after applying at night. My skin feels hydrated, fine lines disappear, and it looks like I got a full night's rest.

FARMACY has a set of their best sellers and it's a great try-it set. 

COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder // $35

What is it? A talc-free, translucent loose lightweight powder that sets makeup with an airbrushed finish. The powder has light diffusing particles that blur and smooth for a lovely effect and it comes in two shades- Light and Deep.

Why do I love it? The finish I get just on my bare, moisturized face is something of beauty! I don't wear alot of makeup, especially in the warmer weather, so the Setting Powder is perfect for layering over my bb or cc cream. 

Eventually I really want to try COVER FX's Mattifying Prime and Set kit.

UNITE Hair BOOSTA Thickening Cream // $27.50

What is it? A lightweight volumizing styling creme that instantly adds thick, touchable volume to fine or limp hair. 

Why do I love it? For a gal with fine hair, this is a gift from the heavens! It doesn't weigh my hair down, makes my hair look great when I blow dry, gives me volume, smells great, and is not sticky!

I also really love the UNITE 7SECONDS detangler!

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment // $24

What is it? An exfoliator that smooths and polishes to reveal a glowing, radiant complexion in as little as one use. Best uses include dullness/uneven texture, pores, and dark spots/uneven skin tone. I was also named as the "Two minute Hollywood facial". 

Why do I love it? I love the end result. Unfortunately when it's on, it does burn a bit, but after a few minutes of wiping it off, my face is soooooo soft. 

I've also tried the Oil Free moisturizer and it's really hydrating. 

Alot of great products, huh? Yep, I told you. I really liked the previous five products because they work with my skin and hair type, and because I love all things beauty :)
