Favorite Summer Beauty Products

July 7, 2016

Now that summer is in full swing (although I’m still having trouble wrapping my mind around that fact, despite last weekend’s summer festivities), I’ve made sure that I have all my summer beauty products ready to go. Not only do I have super sensitive skin, but I’m also pretty pale, so the hot summer sun doesn’t mix with my skin. My thick, naturally curly hair has a hard time during the warmer months, too, and tends to get extremely dry (basically it feels like a horse tail). So, I rounded up all my favorite beauty products that I use on a daily basis during the summertime. Most of them I use year round, actually!

1. Essie ‘Tart Deco’ Nail Polish

This is my #1 go-to nail polish for summer! I get compliments every time I wear it, and the peachy coral color never fails to brighten my day.

2. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

This is a new product that I love! I hate wearing lipstick all day that doesn’t moisturize my lips. This balm/lip color combo makes life so much easier!

3. Eucerin Skin Calming Body Wash

Okay, this isn’t the cutest product, but it’s probably the one that I absolutely could not live without. Seriously. I had to go to the dermatologist last year because my dry skin got so itchy during the summer (super attractive, I know), and she recommended this body wash. It truly is a lifesaver!

4. Not Your Mother’s Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

I always bring this out during the summer! I love spraying it on my damp hair and letting it dry. It gives you the best beachy waves!

5. Maybelline Full & Soft Waterproof Mascara

I love that this mascara doesn’t dry out your eyelashes. It gives your lashes a soft, natural look that’s perfect for summer!

6. Davines Oi All In One Milk

I received this in my Birchbox and literally can’t stop using it- I already ordered the full size bottle. This is one of the few products that actually makes my hair super soft, silky, and shiny! It’s especially perfect for summer when your hair takes a beating.

7. Maybelline Beach Defense Sunscreen

This is my favorite sunscreen year after year because 1. it doesn’t smell and 2. it’s not greasy or oily!

8. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

I’ve been using this little drugstore gem for years and love it. It’s really light coverage and has SPF, so during the summer I skip heavy foundation and just throw this on instead.

9. Clinique Moisture Surge

This is the priciest of the bunch, but I’ve been a Clinique girl my whole life and will never stop using this product. It does WONDERS for dry skin!

What are your go-to summer beauty products? I’d love to know!
