Throwing shade at the sun and other summer pledges

If you wrote a breakup-letter with the sun, what would it look like? Here’s mine.

“Dear Sun,
I love your warmth, your cheer and your charm, but I am on to you, you hot temptress. I am thankful for your generosity in sharing all your Vitamin D with me, and for your contribution to my bountiful garden, but girl… you’ re hurting us and it’s time to stop! I have moved on from my golden-goddess goals and looking for other (safer) ways to feel fab around you. In the meantime, I’m rounding up a new #SummerSquad to get over you.
I hope we can still be friends though… I just need a bit of space.
Your old bestie,
XOX Chantsy”

I have had a chance to dabble in all the products that were sent my way, and hope to share an honest review to help you with your quest for a new natural skin care routine.
