Summertime is here! This time of the year is the best: No school, sunshine, friends, the beach, and so much more! It’s definitely my happy time of the year (well, in addition to my birthday and Christmas, of course). Since my birthday just passed, I wanted to share a few new beauty products that I was gifted. These products are amazing and one of the things I love most about them is that they all smell so wonderful and work so well.
Here are my favorite must-have beauty products this summer:
Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
What girl doesn’t love her hair smelling so good?! I had never heard of this shampoo and conditioner until my best friend got it for me after leaving the salon one day. I about died when I first smelled it and what I love most is that my hair soaks up the delicious smell and the staying power is amazing. I have both the Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner and the Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner and use them interchangeably. Not only does my hair smell so good after, but it’s so silky smooth, easily managed, and definitely soft. Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner is great if you have hair that’s au-natural or if your hair is color treated like mine. Another amazing thing? You won’t find sulfates, phosphates, or parabens in these products. Oh no, they are free of all three. You can purchase this amazing smelling shampoo and conditioner here.
Stress Relief Body Wash and Foam Bath
Talk about another fantastic smelling product! Eucalyptus and spearmint makes for a relaxing and wonderful bath. This comes from Bath & Body Works and is a gift I got for my birthday. Trust me, you will want to buy this product, pour yourself a glass of wine, turn off the lights, and enjoy the relaxing effect of this bubble bath. Oh, and just so you know, a little goes a long way. I say this from experience because I almost suffocated in a bath with wayyyy too much bubbles (I did end up flooding the bathroom). Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉 You can buy your bubbles here.
Calm Lavender + Chamomile Shea Body Butter
You guys. Whoa. Talk about yet another product that blows my mind when it comes to the delicious smell AND the amazing quality of this product. Shocker, but I got this as a gift too and I’ve been obsessed with it from the get go. It’s the perfect amount of thickness that a body butter should be. It goes on easily (doesn’t leave your legs and arms looking pasty) and smells fantastic… not to mention that the smell stays on. It’s definitely not over-powering, but just the perfect amount. Plus, how can you go wrong with lavender and chamomile?! Am I right? You can purchase your own body butter here.
Touch a la mode Cream Luminizer by Younique
There’s nothing like a summer glow on your cheekbones to help you feel pretty without having to use a lot of makeup. It’s my go to for summer: minimal makeup, but just enough for a glow! This cream highlighter comes in 6 different shades and the best part is that you do not need a color match. That’s right; all of the shades work on everyone! It’s just a matter of preference as far as picking a shade goes. My favorites are: Lustrous (rose-gold) and Benevolent (Golden Frost). I love to wear this with a little loose powder foundation, mascara, and chapstick in the summer time. It only takes five minutes and then I’m ready to head out the door! You can get your glow on here.
Carmex Classic Lip Balm
Okay, don’t laugh at me, but I am obsessed with this chapstick for a number of reasons. I love my lips to feel soft and this does the job perfectly. The smell (again with the smells, lol) is great and it goes fabulous with my go-to makeup face, especially when I’m tan. It leaves my lips looking dewy, almost like I have on clear lip gloss. Oh, and it stays on for forever!! Buy some goodness for your lips here.
Hope you enjoyed reading about my latest favorite beauty products! I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of the above before. Also, if you have a favorite product you’d like to share, post it below! As always, I love trying out new products! Happy summer!!
