As I write this getting ready for summer post I’m having a little laugh, because it’s already in the 90’s in Kansas City. And it doesn’t look like it’s cooling down!
So are you ready for summer beauty? I find that what I need right now is hydration. The heat and my allergy meds are drying me out! Here our my current faves (that were sent to me for my honest review):
Erborian Pink Perfect Crème ($39 USD) — This is a primer that helps to minimize the appearance of pores with a blurring, soft-focus effect. Enriched with camilla japonica seed oil, skin looks smoother with a subtle glow—and is prepped for makeup application. I like that I can wear this on it’s own or with a bit of powder on top for hot days that I don’t want to wear makeup.
Purchase at Sephora and sephora.com
LAVANILA Laboratories Healthy Body Butter ($19 USD) — These 100% pure Shea & Cocoa Butters are velvety smooth and instantly absorbed into the skin resulting in deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. Each blend has powerful antioxidants and essential oils for long-lasting hydration. With super soft scents and a non-greasy formula, prepare for the ultimate indulgence. Available in four variations/scents, including: Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Coconut, Vanilla Grapefruit and Fragrance-Free. I love Vanilla Grapefruit and Vanilla Coconut for the summer.
Available at Lavanila.com
Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer ($7.99 – $10.99) — This unique moisturizer is activated by water on freshly-showered skin and penetrates deeply into the skin’s surface to heal dryness for soft, healthy skin you can only imagine. After showering, apply on wet skin, then towel dry off. It leaves skin so soft!
Available at all mass retailers & drug stores nationwide
LAVANILA Healthy Deodorants — The Elements Collection ($14 USD) features fresh, energizing deodorants where health and wellness collide, inspired by some of the core elements of nature: air, water and earth. These aluminum-free, healthy deodorants are infused with carefully curated blends of pure essential oils to awaken our connection to the Elements and the immense power within them.
Purchase at Sephora.com
If you’d rather use a roll on, try Ban Roll-On Antiperspirant Deodorant, Purely Gentle ($10.58 on Amazon for two) — With a new, gentler formula, Purely Gentle provides 24 hour protection against underarm perspiration even for those with sensitive skin. The roll-on glides on smoothly providing instant freshness, transforming hot, overworked skin to smooth and refreshed.
Purchase at Amazon
It is essential to have dry shampoo in the summer! John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo ($6.99 USD) — Give your hair an uplifting boost and touchable body that lasts while you’re on the go with just a spritz of this dry shampoo. The revitalizing formula instantly refreshes, revives and restores limp locks while getting rid of dirt and oil for hair that feels clean, healthy and light.
