While there’s nothing wrong with a bottle of tried-and-true sunscreen lotion, this summer, it’s all about SPF oils.
Not only do these oils protect your skin (make sure you grab at least SPF 30), but they also leave you hydrated and glowing. And the SPF oil making the biggest splash this year is definitely Vacation’s Chardonnay Oil SPF 30.
You might recognize this brand from its viral retro images and packaging, but this high-quality oil isn’t something you’d find back in the day. Vacation describes the product as “a lightweight SPF 30 sunscreen oil made from chardonnay grape-seed oil that delivers an enviable, subtle shine while hydrating and protecting your skin.”
This oil is transparent on all skin tones and leaves your skin moisturized and feeling clean — not greasy. It also smells amazing, thanks to Vacation’s “Grand Cru ‘86” scent, which is “inspired by the celebratory magnetism and charisma of the coveted libation.” After all, one of the brand’s tag lines is “the world’s best-smelling sunscreen.”
Plus, this special formula is also reef-safe, paraben-free, cruelty-free and vegan. It’s jam-packed with vitamin E, jojoba and passion fruit oil, as well as the ingredient for which it’s named — chardonnay grape-seed oil!
But this must-have sunscreen isn’t some gimmick. Vacation actually works with Dr. Elizabeth Hale, chief medical advisor to the Vacation brand and a VP of The Skin Cancer Foundation, to develop its products to ensure that they’re protecting you. Beyond the oil, the brand also sells classic sunscreen lotion, a spray SPF, mineral sunscreen and lip balm sunscreen.
If you’re tossing one thing in your beach bag this summer, make it the Vacation Chardonnay Oil SPF 30.
