Guess what? It’s almost summer! No, really, the little sunshine smiley on my calendar confirmed it. It’s kind of hard to believe, given how chilly it is outside right now. I’m sitting here in fleece jammies with a snuggie wrapped around my shoulders a la Supergirl style (my husband actually calls it my “Supergirl.”) It was like a million degrees for a few days last week, though, so there’s that.
As much as I love the warmer days, it kind of wreaks havoc on my hair and skin. You would think that getting through winter would give me a break, but summer comes with its own fair share of beauty problems. No worries! I’m all stocked up on these five amazing beauty products that tackle just about every part of your body. Check them out!
3 Must-Have Beauty Products for Summer
I received some of the products listed below in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Eva-NYC for your hair
Have you heard of Eva-NYC yet? They just rolled out to Costco stores nationwide with a killer-sized bottle (1 liter) that will last you the whole summer long. They sent me both their Clean it Up Shampoo and Soften Up Conditioner. So far, I’m in love. I have thick hair, so finding a shampoo that rinses clean is usually a challenge. Both the shampoo and the conditioner go in smoothly and come out with just one rinsing (as opposed to me standing under the shower adjusting the settings until water is practically dumping on my head). Eva-NYC contains argan oil, which is just crazy great for your hair.
If you use both the shampoo and the conditioner together, it’s scientifically proven to strengthen your hair 3X. The trademarked Keravix protein complex makes the magic happen. Plus, it smells great too! It’s also gentle enough for my son to use on his hair, and he’s easily irritated.
Kiehl’s LIP DUO for soft lips
Want a beauty product that makes your lips oh-so soft AND gives back to support cancer research? You’ll love Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatments! They are so rich and creamy! Kiehl’s partnered with Bright Pink, a non-profit organization focused on preventing breast and ovarian cancer in young women. For every DUO sold, Kiehl’s will donate 100% of net profits, up to $25,000 to Bright Pink. The limited edition duo pairs Untinted and Simply Rose shades in a single carton. I gave the untinted to my mom and kept the Simply Rose shade for myself. It’s just the right amount of pink! If you’re prone to chapped lips in the summer, you definitely need this.
Simple Sugars for Everything Else
If you read my Simple Sugars post, you know why they’re on this list. They banish so many of your skin problems in just one single step. Seriously. One step. They cleanse, exfoliate AND moisturize like you wouldn’t believe. Even my son uses their body scrubs, they’re THAT gentle. I couldn’t possibly pick just one product that I love the most. Simple Sugars has a scrub for every single part of your body, from face to feet. Plus they’re always coming out with crazy-awesome new scents, like Pancakes! Check them out here and discover the NOLO difference (that means no lotion, FYI).
While I’m sure I’ll be trying out a ton more beauty products over the next few months (like I said, I’m addicted), I can honestly see myself getting through the entire summer with just these three alone. Hair, lips, everything else: what more do you need? Okay, so I’m actually still looking for a self-tanner that doesn’t turn my ghostly white skin orange (or that I can actually figure out how to apply because honestly, I have no aim!).
