Fun Drugstore Beauty Finds for the 4th of July

Press Samples (Affiliate Links)

If you have festive plans for the 4th of July, that may also include some include adventurous outdoor excursions, then here are a few fun drugstore finds that you might want to take with you on your adventure. I thought that bright cheery colors and delightful scents would be a fun way to enhance the festive day– whether you are watching the fireworks on the beach with friends, or from your neighbors roof-deck.
1) Mia Flashion Flowers Lighted Flower Headband ($19.99 from Target and Mia Beauty): Perfect for a festival, concert, or any outdoor events. These Flashion Flower™wildflowers will take your outfit to a new level. Simply press the leaf to switch between the four light settings. Each headband has a replaceable battery and a special adjustable strap for a comfortable fit.

These are super fun festival-ready Boho-Chic floral garland headbands that actually light up. Once the sun sets and the fireworks begin– just press the leaf and choose your setting, and your floral tiara will be beautifully illuminated.
2) Streekers Wild Weekend Hair Color ($12.99 from Amazon and Colormetrics): The 4th of July is the perfect occasion to adorn your tresses with fun temporary colors, and STREEKERS Wild Weekend Hair Color is a great choice.

STREEKERS is true temporary hair color with a difference. Instant. Liquid. Washes out when you want it out. Not a mascara, not a crayon, not a paint. But a cool new hair color that uses innovative technology. In 8 vibrant colors: pink, blue, ultra violet, red, green, yellow, orange, purple.

STREEKERS is a stroke of genius at a moment's notice. It's so easy to apply with a sleek, sponge-tip applicator that ensures perfect coverage and control. Streekers can be used over mousse, styling gel or wax and followed by hair spray. Best of all, you can brush your hair after Streekers dries. It won't flake off (unlike other bright temporary hair colors). Your hair will be soft and the color will remain vibrant.
STREEKERS shades are vivid on blondes and blonde streaks and show as subtle highlights on darker hair.
3) Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm ($4.49 at ULTA): Baby Lips come in a wide range of shades, and they even have some that contain an SPF. They are buttery smooth and very hydrating, and  are perfect to toss in your bag on the 4th of July.

Clinically proven to make lips 82% visibly less dry, 94% less rough, 77% more supple, and 77% better looking after just four weeks of use! It's clinical care for baby soft lips.
4) SolScents Sunscreens (Reviewed here): These sunscreens come in a wonderful array of scents and sun protection factors, and they moisturize the skin. The company has a deep philanthropic mission, and their seven scented sunscreens correspond to seven different causes to which they donate a percentage of the proceeds from every sale.

SolScents SPF50 Flower Blast Spray (6 oz. for $9.99 from Target) SPF 50 body spray intoxicates your senses with floral notes of Jasmine and Cattleya Orchids as they bloom into a feminine bouquet with an opulent background of creamy musky undertones.

SolScents SPF30 Deep Love Lotion (8 oz. for $9.99 from Target) Swim in an ocean of love when Sugared Plums and Freesia collide to create a passionate aroma with this SPF 30 lotion.
5) Body Fantasies Body Sprays ($5.98 for 8 oz. from Amazon):  I also chose some affordable fragrances since a long day of playing, means you may like a little fragrant pick-me-up (since long days out in the sun at events can feel a bit like camping…). These light and fresh body sprays are super affordable so you won't mind sharing them with your friends– just pop your favorite scent in your bag.
6) Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths ($3.79 for 10 cloths from Amazon): Lightly-fragranced cloths cool skin on contact as they wipe away sweat for long-lasting freshness. Feel energized with a cool silky touch and light citrus scent. Gently wipe the soft, durable cloth on any part of your body - around your neck, chest or under arms - and enjoy cool, instant freshness. 

Not only do these smell great, but they also feel wonderfully cooling against the skin, and they are perfect to toss in your beach bag.

    1. I agree with you about the flower garland! It's absolutely adorable and so much fun! That was precisely what I had in mind– these products are affordable and easy to find, and perfect for music festivals and July 4th. Plus, if in the midst of the chaos some of these things get lost it won't be a huge financial expenditure to replace them.

  3. I don't go anywhere on the Fourth. It gets crazy around here, what with the "World's Oldest Rodeo" and the holiday weekend, we stock up ahead of time and stay hunkered down then sit on the balcony for fireworks. I probably won't even wear makeup. lol
