But in the meantime, I still want to enjoy these last few moments of summer which is why I thought I’d share some of my summer beauty essentials with you today! Living in Tahoe, my beauty routine is pretty low maintainence in the summer and I really don’t wear much (ok, any) makeup most days. However, these 5 products have become my tried and true staples over the past few months:
1. Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector
This stuff is the best face sunscreen I’ve ever tried, hands down. It’s very lightweight, helps keeps your face from getting shiny, and it stays on all day. My face hasn’t gotten sunburned once!
2. Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch
While my all-time favorite lip butters are definitely the Sugar lip treatments by Fresh, since they’re packaged in metal tubes they tend to melt when you leave them in sun too long plus they are a little pricey. Baby Lips by Maybelline is a great summer solution because it’s cheap, it doesn’t melt in your beach bag, it’s got SPF 20, and I absolutely adore this bright pink color for summer.
3. Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
This bronzer has a bit of gold shimmer to it, and I absolute love how it looks with a tan.
4. Moroccanoil Oil Treatment/Light Oil Treatment
My hair is currently the longest it’s been in ages, and one of the main reasons I haven’t gone and gotten it trimmed yet is because using Moroccan Oil has done wonders on reducing split/dry ends! I use the normal Moroccan Oil on the ends of my hair when I get out of the shower, and then if I’m blowdrying it I’ll use just a bit of the Moroccan Oil for light-colored hair to help tame flyaways. Plus, I’m addicting to the smell of Moroccan Oil, it’s the best.
5. Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing Lotion
I have (very) acne prone skin…which is awesome at age 25 (not), but hey, it is what it is. However, this lotion has done wonders for my complexion over the past few months and I’m totally obsessed. I put it on at night after washing my face (and sometimes in the morning too) and it’s really helped keep breakouts at bay. Plus, I feel like the tube lasts for a really long time…I bought it back in April and have basically used the same tube all summer and only had get a new tube a few weeks ago!
So tell me, what are some of your favorite summer beauty essentials?
And speaking of summer, I’m also guest posting today over at Then I Got To Thinking and I’m talking about my five favorite Tahoe summertime activities…be sure to check it out!
I think that about wraps it up for me today, and I need to get my butt in gear! I’ve got some things to wrap up for work (as always!) and then Cam and I are headed out later this afternoon to go camping in the Redwoods. I’m so excited as I’ve been looking forward to going camping all summer, and I’m looking forward to checking it off my summer to-do list. I can’t wait to see the tall trees, make s’mores, relax out in nature, and just unplug.
See you Monday! Xoxo
