We’re more than halfway through summer, how in the world did that happen?! Although I’m excited for cooler temps. and lower humidity, I will definitely miss 8PM sunsets. When it comes to my beauty routine, not much changes from season to season, but I do rely on specific products during warmer months. I’ve got body care, skin care, and hair products to chat about, so let’s get to it!
Some of these products are new, while others are long time favs!
I’ll start with my newest products, the L’Oreal Air Dry It Mousse and Wave Swept Spray. I received this line from PR, and was hooked after my very first use. They are formualted for wet air, so you can quickly style and go. These no heat products fight frizz, and promise to hold your style for 24 hours!
I have very finicky hair, it’s frizzy with a lot of “natural texture” (as my stylist says). So, in other words, it’s naturally a hot mess 😛 Before babies, I was able to scrunch it, and be on my way. But, pregnancy changed its texture, so now it requires a bit more work. I gave these two products a test run on a super hot humid day, and to my surprise my scrunched curls held all day and never turned frizzy!
SOL DE JANEIRO FOOT CREAM & DR. SCHOOLS FOOT FILER
Feet are gross to most people, but we’ve all got them, and we all deal with some sort foot related beauty blunder. From cracked heals, to blisters, and even calluses, feet are truly hard to manage. For me, it’s my heels. I lived in a tropical climate for three years, and my feet lived in flip flops. Being exposed to the elements day after day, caused my heels to become extremely dry, to the point of nearly cracking. But, I’ve discovered two products that seriously changed my feet!
The Sol de Janeiro Samba Foot Fetish Cream, and the Dr. Scholls Dream Walk Express Pedi Foot Smoother, are the perfect combo for rough, dry, cracked feet. First, I use the foot filer on each foot for about 5 min, then I apply the cream. It instantly absorbs, and leaves feet feeling insanely soft – without feeling heavy or greasy like most other foot creams. Next, I apply some coconut oil, and pull on a pair of cozy socks. I’ve been doing this routine for 2 months, and my feet are so much better looking!
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL EGG MOUSSE BODY OIL
As far as body creams go, I usually gravitate toward rich formulas. So, I was surprised when I fell in love with the Too Cool for School Egg Mousse Body Oil. It’s got a really fun hair mousse texture, and it blends into skin instantly without fuss. It also smells amazing, and leaves my legs feeling silky smooth. It’s super quick, and perfect for summer!
TARTE CLEAN QUEEN DEODORANT
Traditional deodorant gets a bad rap, so I decided to give an aluminum free formula a try. This one from Tarte has been my only sweat blocker for three months, and so far I’m loving it! I plan to do an entire post for it, so until then just know that it works, and it’s awesome!
THERMAL SPRING WATER SPRAY
This product is totally boujee, but such a staple if you have kids. I keep these little water sprays in my purse, diaper bags, the car. They are great for a quick blast of refreshment, and wonderful to cool off tired fussy kids. The spray is super fine, and it never feels too saturating or heavy.
SOAP & GLORY FLAKE AWAY BODY SCRUB
Summer means short shorts, dresses, and lots of skin – at least it used to before I was a mama 😛 If you’re still rocking daisy dukes, I highly suggest the Soap & Glory Flake Away body scrub. It smells like heaven, has a smooth (but efficient) texture, and leaves skin so smooth. It’s the perfect prep for shaving!
FRESH SUGAR LIP TREATMENT (CANDY)
I adore the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments! The newest shade to join the lineup is Candy, a bright fun pink. The formula is hydrating, and the color is actually really pigmented for a balm (think of it as a really hydrating lipstick). These babies are especially are great for summer, because they contain an SPF to protect. You can learn more, and see swatches on my Fresh Sugar post!
See any favorites? I’d love to know what products you reach for each summer!
