With Summer officially under way, it’s time to start thinking about sun safety and stock up on summer beauty essentials. Here are a few of my current summer beauty favorites that will help keep you looking cool & fabulous all summer long…..
Neova DNA Damage Control Active SPF 43 ($46) – No summer beauty buys list can be complete without a sunscreen! Designed for everyday use and ultra-active wear, this is a highly effective, physical sunscreen with transparent zinc. Not only does it defend against broad-spectrum UVA/UVB exposure but also restrict and correct sun-inflicted cell damage with DNA repair enzymes while antioxidants Vitamin C and L-ergothioneine suppress free-radical damage. It’s also water-resistant [80 minutes]….just perfect for the outdoor enthusiast!
Jane iredale Golden Shimmer Face and Body Lotion ($32) – Infused with minerals that diffuse and soften light, this ultra-lightweight lotion creates a subtle veil of shimmer designed to warm and smooth the complexion. It has a beautiful peachy-golden color that blends really well. The natural formula rejuvenates and hydrates with botanical extracts & antioxidants and is gentle enough to be used on the face or body. Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite makeup! You can also mix it with a self tanner for a soft shimmering, bronzed look.
L’Oreal EverStyle Texture Series Beach Spray ($7) – Textured beach waves are a summer hair staple but you don’t need to spend all day in the harsh sun to get that fresh-from-the-beach look. This sea-salt infused styling spray lets you create carefree, textured waves leaving hair softly tousled and texturized without any build up. Love that it’s free of alcohol and synthetic dyes!
Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal ($36) – Perfect to treat & conceal summer skin problems, this lightweight, multifunctional concealer minimizes the appearance of blemishes, dark circles, pigmentation spots and fine lines with its enhanced color minerals. Designed for use on both the under eye and face, it instantly covers, corrects and improves skin tone and texture for an evenly smooth skin. It also contains marine collagen, soothing white rose and chamomile extracts and essential oils as skin soothing agents. Available in 4 shades to adapt to almost all skin tones: light, medium, tan and dark.

c. Booth Mimosa Honeysuckle Shaving Oil ($7.99) – This nourishing shave oil offers superior conditioning to soften the hair, enhance razor glide while guarding against ingrown hairs. Just smooth a generous amount over damp skin, then shave and rinse for smooth & touchably soft skin! I love the citrusy sweet scent with a bubbly blend of champagne grapes, grapefruit, and orange topped off with trumpet Honeysuckle! Free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil and petrolatum.
Softlips Cube Lip Protectant SPF 15 ($3.49) – With a sleek glass-like cube design, this lip balm hydrates with shea butter, replenishes with antioxidants & vitamins A, C & E while protecting with SPF 15 and adding a light touch of shine.
White Sands Porosity The Fix ($19) – This weightless leave-in treatment helps to temporarily “fix” strand imperfections, making frizz, rough spots and damage much less noticeable for a smooth finish. Formulated with gentle silicones and natural oils, it also speeds up blow dry times and multi-tasks as a detangler, shine enhancer and heat protectant, on wet or dry hair. Great for those who color or bleach regularly to tame those dry, damaged locks!Disclosure : Some of the products were provided for editorial consideration
