10 Must Have Products for Summer -Living Nature & Jane Iredale by Nicola Murray
Are you ready for summer? Here are my 10 must-have beauty products (all natural and/or organic of course) for the summer and the best part – you can win them ALL! Yes, all of them. This is my biggest giveaway ever and I’m super excited to be having it!
#1: Charcoal Body Sponge
When it gets hot, you need a body sponge that not only cleans, but absorbs all that dirt and sweat and gunk. My favorite is Natural Konjac Sponge Company Bamboo Charcoal Sponge.
#2: Sun Repair Serum
No matter how much sunscreen you put on, your skin is still getting UV rays, and therefore UV damage. I LOVE Blissoma’s Amend Facial Solar Repair Serum. It has helped heal my sunburns overnight, literally (and I use it all over, not just on my face).
#3: A Great Deodorant
No one likes stinky underarms. Colorado Pit Stik is super effective, no BO with this stuff.
#4: Classic Brown Eye Shadow
Whether you are on the beach, by the pool and dancing all night – a good neutral/brown eye shadow duo is a must. Wear it light or play it up for a smokey look. While I haven’t reviewed it yet (review coming soon!), this Antonym Cosmetics duo is awesome and even comes with a dual-headed brush that is very high quality – no cheapie sponge brushes here.
#5: Great Skincare for Combo/Oily Skin
No one likes breakouts! But even during the hot summer months, skin still needs a little moisture. Living Nature’s Purifying Cleanser and Balanced Day Lotion are great for breakouts and provides light moisture without being greasy. My review of this duo is coming soon!
#6: Natural Looking Self Tanner
For those pale-skinned beauties like myself, sometimes you just need some color before you hit the pool. If the reflection of the sun’s rays off my skin is blinding people, it’s self tanner time. I adore Suntegrity’s Self Tanner.
#7: Refreshing Body Scrub
When it’s hot and sweaty, you need a body scrub that removes off all that gunk and refreshes at the same time. Organic Bath Co’s RefreshMINT Body Scrub has been my go-to body scrub. It’s gentle, effective and leaves a mint tingle.
This is of course the most obvious one on the list! You need sunscreen! While sunscreen is important year-round, it is especially important in the summer when the sun is most intense and people are outside more. BurnOut recently reformulated their Ocean Tested sunscreen to include more moisturizing, nourishing ingredients.
#9: A Hot Lipstick
Nothing says sexy like a great lipstick. I love Red Apple Lipstick’s Light My Fire. It’s a subtle red with a gorgeous copper sheen.
#10: An Eyeliner that Won’t Run
When you’re out having fun in the sun, the last thing you want is for your eyeliner to be running down your face. Jane Iredale’s new Jelly Jar gel eyeliners are amazing in that once they set, they STAY.
