Summer Beauty Picks
This summer pair down your beauty bag with these new and noteworthy products. This season I've teamed up with AOL to bring you the best that beauty brands have to offer this summer. From sunless tanner to bronzer to sunscreen I'm breaking down what's worth the money and what products you'll be reaching for well into fall!
Caudalie Grape Water
Since using Herbivore's Rose Water, I've been hooked on setting sprays. Caudalie's grape water is absolutely incredible! The applicator sprays evenly and a little goes a long way. I use this after applying my make-up and also throughout the day to keep my skin hydrated and dewy. I had heard mixed reviews on the smell, but honestly I really enjoy it! If you enjoy setting sprays/mists I would highly recommend this product.
The Cool Fix
Summer legs have met their new best friend! I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say razor burn is a pain in the ass. Not only is it uncomfortable, but the pesky redness really puts a damper on the day. The cool fix, sooth skin to stop redness, and gives instant relief. For under $15 a bottle its a product you cant afford not to have in your beauty cabinet.
First Aid Beauty Gradual Tanner
If you prefer lotion-based sunless tanner, this is a great product to try! As a lover of first aid beauty I was very anxious to test this formula. The overall application blended in with skin quickly and dryer faster than I expected. I actually was able to see a slight glow only hours after I applied it, and once it was left on for the duration was left with a nice bronze.
OGX WEIGHTLESS LIFTING TONIC
When it comes to OGX products if the smell doesn't have you trying their products then the sheer results of their line-up will! I actually started using the weightless shampoo and conditioner prior to trying the tonic. Kev loves their stuff as well so when we go to stock up he always grabs a set. This particular tonic works wonders on damaged ends and brittle hair. The mixture contains oil which nourishes and moisturizes hair, which is perfect for this time of year.
Supergoop Body Butter
Keep this product in your beach bag! I've been a big fan of super goop sunscreen since last summer, and have been continuously amazed by their new products. This body butter delivers sun protection and keeps skins moisturized and luminous. I actually like to use this product if I know I'll be spending a large amount of time outdoors. The formula is buttery and leaves skin feeling like it just had a good drink of water. While it does leave skin with a soft dewy look, it doesn't become sticky when going into the sun, which is a huge bonus!
Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Shine Spray
I'm a huge fans of Alterna products, and especially love their Summer ocean spray! During the summer my hair takes humidity horribly! From tropical vacations to the local beach taming fly-aways and excess frizz is a battle. With the shine veil I just spritz hair after blow drying and it instantly becomes much softer and manageable.
