Liz - La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid “This stuff is so awesome! 100% mineral protection with no greasy feel or white residue. I am super fair and burn very easily, and because I use this I haven’t gotten any trace of a sunburn all summer, even by the pool or on long, sweaty hikes.”
Beth – La-Rocca’s Gold Vitamin Repair Mist is the perfect pick me up for your skin after spending time in the sun. This moisturizing face mist with sunscreen is small enough to carry in your purse for whenever you need some added hydration and protection.
Cover FX BritePrep FX primer and SkinTint
It’s no time for lots of makeup which is why these two items are my favorite summer picks. The primer brightens your skin while shielding UV rays and the skin tint moisturizer provides additional sun protection and sheer coverage, camouflaging imperfections with the perfect hint of color. Its hassle free, yet provides all the coverage/color needed.”
“I love this spray all year round but it is especially refreshing on hot summer days. It’s great for setting makeup, feeling refreshed, and fighting off free-radicals. As a bonus it smells great too.”
Jenna – I LOVE that relaxed, beachy hair look and with my long extensions back in, I’m hating washing and styling my hair more than ever! Rene Furterer’s Naturia Dry Shampoo is so easy to use as a quick water free hair cleanser and with the essential oils, it smells amazing. This dry shampoo is perfect to get a summer look without all the styling.
Marissa – “My favorite summer product (and lifesaver) is Lorac’s TANalizer. This amazing body bronzer keeps my legs looking tan at every summer event. Added bonuses: smells great and is easy to use!”
Devon – “I love Colorescience’s Loose Mineral Powder Foundation Brush SPF 20 for the summer because it has SPF and is perfect for touch-ups on a beach day!”
“The most amazing facial SPF I have tried yet. It comes out like a liquid which was a little different, but goes on so smooth (like velvet) and absorbs quickly without a greasy feel or white film. I feel like it even makes my makeup go on easier.”
“This summer, I fully plan on being outside and spend less time inside. With Becca Beach Tint I can quickly add long-lasting color to my cheeks and lips for a warm weather glow”
Antonette – Ole Henriksen’s All Purpose Aloe Vera Gel
“This is one of my favorite go-to products for the summer since the longer days and warm weather beg me to spend more time outdoors. It provides fast, cooling relief from sunburns and pesky bug bites!”
Amber – “Vanilla Coconut, by LAVANILA is the perfect summer scent! Not only will everyone compliment you on this fresh fragrance, but the coconut infused scent lasts all day with simply one spritz. Definitely one of my all time favorites!”
