I always have mix feelings when it comes to Summer. I love the beach and of course the sexy Summer fashion — bikinis, flip flops and cool lemonade, but at the same time, I really don’t like the extra heat that makes my skin dry and bleh! If you happen to have the same feelings as I do, I have good news for you. I have selected beauty products that will make our Summer much more fun! From head to toe, here’s my top 8 bodyguards for beautiful and easy-breezy Summer time!
1. Bumble and Bumble the Surf Set. US$28.
Those who can’t get enough of beaches and waves should definitely give this trio (shampoo, conditioner, spray) a try because their salt-water based formula and sea-botanical minerals are super great for your hair. They enhance sexy matte texture and bring out the natural and sea-breeze texture to your hair. Love the ocean smell? Then you’ll love them!
2. Too Faced Tan Without the Twinkle. US$15.
Summer won’t be complete without sexy tan, and if you don’t have time (or the patience) for tanning, Too Faced has a perfect solution for you. Through their new “Tan Without the Twinkle”, you can get the bronze you’ve always wanted. This shimmer-free matte bronzer is made out of real antioxidant-rich cocoa powder. So, make sure to brush it all up, ladies.
3. Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask. US$34.
After being exposed under the sun and those crazy heat, your face deserves a break, that’s when Boscia comes to the rescue with this amazing Cool Blue calming mask. Formulated with sea-whip that works as anti-inflammatory and aloe vera that’s known for its superb cooling effect, give your skin a nice and fresh pampering with this one of a kind mask!
4. Victoria’s Secret Sun Blissed Hydrating Body Lotion. US$12.
Introducing Victoria’s Secret’s latest body lotion; the Sun Blissed! If tangerine and marigold are your thing, then this super smooth and sweet lotion is for you. Just like what its called, this fast absorbing lotion is made to glaze and hydrate your skin instantly, thanks to the nourishing aloe, grapeseed extracts and vitamin C and E. Love the smell, love how it works!
5. Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment. US$18.50.
Don’t forget to treat your pouts right, especially during Summer time. They’re part of your body that’s very sensitive! That’s why you need to constantly pocket this lippy from Fresh. It moisturizes up to 6 hours and enhance your natural lip color, too. A great treatment for better looking puckers!
6. Burberry Summer Perfume 3.3oz. US$67.
Warning! you’d better spend most of your time outdoors when you spray some of this magic from Burberry, because it is designed and inspired by the beautiful nature! Burberry Summer is a gorgeous blend of pomegranate, mandarin, green leaf with a heart of rose and lilly of the valley. Not only that you’ll also find the cedarwood, sandalwood and white musk very sensual and energetic!
7. Sara Happ Lip Scrub. US$24.
OK, I must admit the packaging of this lip scrub was the one that lured me to find out more about this product, and as I did my reading, I finally approved that this is actually a great product! It soothes your lips and from what it’s said, it relaxes you as well. I don’t doubt it, because lavender tends to give that kind of effect. I certainly can’t wait to give this lil one a try.
8. Essie Summer Collection 2013 Nail Polish. US$8/each.
Of course we can’t forget about our nails now, can we? In this case, I choose Essie to be the official representative, only because they have the best colors I’ve been looking for. Summer is all about being fresh, adventurous and playful and you can definitely feel those vibes through these 6 excellent colors!
