Top 11 Must Have Summer Beauty Products

I love the carefree days of summer.  Trying to do the most I can with my kiddos its really a time for us to re-connect from the school months.  I really appreciate the minimalist style of life in the summer.  Less clothes, less packing, less makeup.  It just seems to be less of everything and oh yes, less money from day trips 🙂

I wanted to give you my top 11, yes thats right 11 must have beauty products of the summer.  I could not stick to just 10!  I personally own and use all of these products and would never list something I’m not in a beauty relationship with.  So, lets get in to the top 11 beauty products for the summer months!


In the Morning:

Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Water in Melon Mint

This is what I call my Bomb-dot-com.  My secret weapon for ever glowing skin, hair and nails.  This collagen Beauty Supplement has my back when I want radiant, flawless skin (which is always.)

Brittle nails, thinning hair, and dull skin are no fun, but that might be a sign that your body needs a little support from the inside out. This products work from within to enhance your skin, hair, and nails, naturally. We help support the skin’s moisture, improving the elasticity, tone and vibrancy that’s already within you. Their mission is to provide natural, simple ways to combat the signs of aging to keep you looking and ultimately feeling your best.

Vital Proteins beauty products, including Collagen Beauty Water and Beauty Greens, contain hyaluronic acid, a highly absorbable nutrient that works in tandem with collagen to enhance your body’s natural beauty, as it was meant to shine.  I cant say enough about this company or products.  I like to dissolve mine in plain water and sip thru the day.  If you wont like Melon Mint they have you covered with an unflavoured collagen and a vanilla. With so many more products I can rave about check them out here: Vital Proteins


Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

Oh the mom days of not showering only to have to then run out for something only to be seen by every one you know!  Once I found this gem I had myself covered.  This  product helps me look my best even when I’m not feeling my best.  No more hat days here! This award winning dry shampoo will have you hooked too.  This cleans hair, eliminates oil, adds volume and texture to hair with ultra-gentle botanical ingredients. Its fresh scent will also take any odor out of your locks to have them smelling fresh all day.  With no white residue (like some products) you can rest assured you can spritz, brush and go with this ultra powerful formula.  Also to be used to texturize hair,  braid or style you have your multipurpose tool in a bottle.


Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Oh, my beloved bum bum cream.  I don’t know what I’d do with out you!  Among my Beauty Lane Approved items this tops the list.  Having an entire blog post dedicated to this here:  Bum Bum Post      it was one of my first blog posts on beauty swag. Many Brazilian creams have a secret ingredient: guaraná, a native Amazonian plant whose fruit contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet. Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is also powered by a Brazilian blend of extraordinarily nourishing cupuaçu butter, antioxidant powerhouse açaí, and super-conditioning coconut oil for irresistible, touch-me skin. The fast-absorbing texture contains just enough mica to add a perfect Brazilian glow, as the formula helps your body look and feel its smoothest and tightest. Pistachio caramel leaves skin delicately fragranced. Because this has a form of caffeine in it, I suggest using it during the day if you are sensitive to its ingredients but BOY DOES THIS WORK!


Shiseido WetForce Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion

All about preserving your skin you need this sunscreen in your life.  Applying like a lotion this water resistant 50+ UVA & UVB sunscreen is not only my favorite, but a favorite of my moms.  This invisible on any skin tone sunscreen features WetForce technology, which provides the skin a protective veil that becomes stronger as it comes into contact with water or perspiration.  Very much ideal for outdoor activities and sports, it provides high sun protection, yet is comfortable and gentle on the skin.  Use this on your face and body and feel good about knowing your protected from the sun’s harmful rays.  Dermatologist-tested, Ophthalmologist-tested, Non-Comedogenic and has a time of  80 minutes water resistant with never a sticky, gloopy feel this is a cult classic among many.  With WetForce technology your sunscreen’s protective veil becomes stronger as it comes into contact with water or perspiration.  A definite Heck Yes for the Summer months.


During The Day:

I like to start this off with the 3 B’s.  Brows, Bronzer and Balm.  The only 3 things I really worry about when minimizing my summer look.



Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade

Woah Momma!  I just recently reviewed this product and am completely in love!  Teaming it up against the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade the Kat Von D held up longer in hotter weather.  The power to craft any brow imaginable is finally a reality. 24-Hour Super Brow is your secret weapon for bold brows with a high-impact, budge-proof look. Get ready to shape, sculpt, color and create with the boldest brow product Kat’s ever created in a spectrum of 16 ultra-pigmented shades. Kat Von D stretched the boundaries of innovation to create the weightless, waterproof formula she’s always wanted but hasn’t been able to find. Saturated with as much pigment as possible, this high-pigment brow pomade delivers budge-proof brows that don’t come off until you want them to.  Master the art of bold brows with an unprecedented range of 16 shades: 7 natural brow tones, 7 artistic colors, “White Out” for mixing and customizing and “Bleach” for a bleached look.  Kat really knows what shes doing with this one.


Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer in Medium

Hot summer days come with makeup melting all over the place.  Keep it in check with the Swimmables line from Cargo Cosmetics. This silky powder formula glides over the skin for a subtle radiant glow.  This bronzer won’t streak or fade; it’s sweat-proof and weatherproof!  Natural-looking color, never orange. The sheer powder is buildable for a customized look. Silicone-coated pigments provide better adhesion to the skin and help withstand water for extended wear.  With L-Lysine, an amino acid found naturally in the skin, helps increase the bronzer’s long-wearing and water-resistant properties.  I love the color so much I wear this in the winter too.  It holds up in any temperature and will have you looking at the rest if the Swimmables line.  More of a Blush person?  Try Catalina, the perfect pink summer shade that is also budge proof.


Winky Lux Flower Balm Jelly Stain in Pink

“I don’t think your ready for this jelly”  HA HA! In all serious-ness this color changing balm will have you addicted the moment it touches your lips.  This clear to pink formula with have you raving about it too.  With heat sensing technology it turns your pout to the perfect just for you pink.  This Instagram Famous lippie works as a balm and a stain leaving your mouth with long lasting color and moisturized lips.  Each Flower Balm contains a real chrysanthemum in the color of your choice. Not to mention, it’s coconut scented fulfilling your tropical vacation dreams from the comfort of your home.  Although all Flower Balms create the same color according to your pH choose your flower in Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow or Purple.


During The Night


Philosophy Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser

This multi-award winning 3 in 1 facial cleanser will have you wondering where its been all your life.  It gently cleanses and removes even the most stubborn makeup all while toning and gently moisturizing the skin.  You wont feel over stripped even in the summer months when your skin can be a bit burned.  Use a quarter sized amount on damp skin and clean away.  Don’t be alarmed when it does not bubble up.  Its gentle formula takes away makeup, dirt and debris in one swoop leaving you with perfectly cleansed and nourished skin.  Some can argue this is the best cleanser in America.  Try it for yourself and see!


Foreo Luna Mini 2

Who knew cleansing can be so techie.  Just recently receiving this in my FabFitFun box I knew immediately this was not going to be re-gifted.  Having bad luck (and a bad reaction) to the Clairsonic I always had my eye on this.  This  LUNA mini 2 is an enhanced T-Sonic™ face brush with eight adjustable intensities for a fully customization cleansing experience. The updated 3-zone face brush is optimized for all skin types and comes in six colors. The T-Sonic pulsations deliver the unique ability to remove 99.5% of dirt and oil, as well as makeup residue, dead skin cells, and exfoliate without irritating the skin.  I must say, this was worth the wait.  The silicone base and bristles are germ and mold resistant so you know your getting the clean without worrying about debris buildup.  If your not sure if you want to take the plunge with a sonic cleanser, try these silicone facial brushes from Amazon.  It gives you a much better clean than using your hands alone.


Philosophy Purity Made Simple Ultra Light Moisturizer

The new sibling to the Purity Cleanser this Purity Made Simple Ultra Light Moisturizer just came to market this year. Already gaining a new following of loves.   This formula leaves skin dewy and smooth with pores less visible.  With nourishing ingredients and antioxidant rich properties get the skin you always wanted. Amassing 5 stars on Philosophy’s website its the moisturizer well worth the wait. Its gel to cream formula has the same light fresh scent as the cleanser.   It absorbs into the skin immediately making it the perfect daily primer alone or for under your makeup.  I’m very picky with the texture of moisturizers so was pleasantly surprised when this seeped right in.  A new product to love for sure!


pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4 in 1 Eye Adore Serum

Your never too young to start preventive care on your under eyes.  I started in my early 20’s and just starting to see the effects aging has on your body (I’m now 35) mostly due to lack of Hydration I really stepped up my A-game using this serum morning and night. This  Blue Lotus eye serum enhanced with active ingredients like French marine plants, Matrixyl 3000 and Haloxyl bring 4x the power against aging.  This proven complex work together against wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness, while hydrating and lifting the delicate eye area.  This 4-in-1 eye serum has a beautiful, lightweight texture that easily integrates into any beauty regimen. When worn under concealer, it helps minimize creases and gives eyes a brighter look. I can definitely testify this product makes my under eye problems disappear.  This is a staple in my beauty routine.
