My Top Summer Beauty Products

Okay y'all - SUMMER IS UPON US. I live for this time of year because there's nothing I love more than spending my free time just basking in the sun. I love having a nice golden tan as much as the next gal, but the older I get, the more I've realized how important it is to still take care of my skin. I've tried out some different products every summer, and I wanted to share with y'all my favorite beauty products & essentials for a perfect sunkissed summer!

Ultra HD Perfector Skin Tint Foundation 
Okay so I've tried a lot of different tinted moisturizers before, and a lot of them haven't necessarily been my favorite. I prefer a tinted moisturizer in the summer over foundation because it's not as heavy + it has SPF for when you're out in the sun! It's lightweight but still gives just the right amount of coverage to color any redness, dull spots, etc! The perfect product to put on before heading out to the beach to have some SPF coverage.

COVER FX Monochromatic Matte + Shimmer Duo 
So I was in Sephora the other day looking for some natural, summer makeup I can wear everyday! The stylist told me about this bronzer duo that just came out by COVER FX, and I immediately was obsessed! I purchased this in the "Sunkissed" Palette - and it's the perfect bronzer to achieve a natural, sunkissed glow! The shimmer highlighter adds just the right amount of glow to add the final touch to your makeup routine! 

This product keeps selling out at Sephora like CRAZY!

OUAI Wave Spray
In the summer time, I'm not huge on putting too much heat on my hair. I've always preferred to spray a little something in my damp hair and go! This wave spray by Ouai is awesome. It creates natural beachy waves without putting in kind of heavy product in your hair. It's even great to take with you to the beach or pool and spray a little in your hair after you get it wet. It's the ultimate summer hair spray!

First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream

I've given a lot of moisturizers a shot, and this one is my favorite go-to in the summer time. The coconut water formula hydrocharges your skin with moisture you're lacking from being out in the sun. You can use it at any time of the day, and I like how it's not sticky or greasy feeling when I put it on. It instantly absorbs into your skin. It's the perfect after-sun face moisturizer to get a hydration boost with a cooling, soothing effect!

Laneige Lip Mask
So I've heard a lot of talk over this lip mask and I was really excited to give it a shot. It really is worth the hype. You just put it on before bed and wake up and your lips feel instantly hydrated and super soft. This is a great product for any time of year, but especially summer I recommend this for bedtime after being out in the sun. Its full of vitamin C and antioxidants your lips need when they're exposed to sun all day!

Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum
This is probably my favorite skin product EVER. Drunk Elephant is my favorite skin-care line. It's the only line I've ever used that has truly transformed and changed my skin for the better. This Vitamin C formulated serum is the perfect addition to your skincare routine for the summer time. It's packed with antioxidants and powerful enzymes that firm your skin, brighten it, and evens out redness and dullness. It's a great formula to relieve sun exposed skin and it provides a great hydration boost! This product is a game-changer.

  Hawaiian Tropic After Silk Hydration Lotion
 This is the one product I use ALL SUMMER long. This lotion has hydrating aloe ribbons that instantly relieve and cool sun-drenched skin, especially sunburn! It also helps prevent any peeling or dry skin after being out in the sun all day. It fully hydrates instantly, and doesn't make your skin feel sticky since your skin absorbs it instantly. Bonus: it extends your tan and allows it to last longer. This lotion goes with me everywhere - if you're out in the sun a lot like me, you need this for sure!
 Sun Bum Dry Shampoo
If dry shampoo isn't your key to being a normal, functioning human... are you even human? But really though, I really think I put a bottle of dry shampoo in my hair a week. I've used Batiste dry shampoos awhile, but started to hear negative things about their products. 
Sun Bum sunscreens & sun lotions have always been my favorite, so when I saw they had a dry shampoo I thought I'd give it a shot. I've tried a lot of different ones and didn't like how they made my hair feel. This one from Sun Bum has the best coconut scent. It doesn't leave my hair oily or greasy like some dry shampoos do. I keep this in my purse and everytime I spray it someone always tell me I smell like a tropical vaca, haha! I highly recommend this one, especially for the summer time!

  CLEAN Reserve Solar Bloom Eau de Perfume
So I'm one of those people who is really picky about perfumes. I got this one as a sample in one of my Sephora orders, and everytime I wore it I got so many compliments. First of all, it smells AMAZING. It smells like a beach cocktail almost. It's the perfect coconut and beach scent, and it smells like a tropical vacation. It's a clean scent with notes of coconut, bergamot, and orange blossom. It's the best summer scent you'll never want to not wear! 

If you all try any these products and love them, I'd love to hear your feedback! Summer is my favorite time of year and these products are the perfect beauty essentials. Thank you for reading!
