It’s finally summertime! So we’ve racked up our top 5 favorite beauty products for the summer! The products are perfect those long, sunny, hazy days at the beach filled with margaritas!
1. Body Shop Coconut Butter
The perfect moisturizing body butter that doesn’t feel greasy is probably one of the toughest finds but The Body Shop’s coconut body butter is one of the best out there. First of all, the coconut smell is not overpowering at all and smells like actual coconuts, not the tacky, fake beachy stuff that most coconut products smell like, (that can sometimes smell like cake batter) BUT actual coconuts that you can find on the beach (is it just me or isn’t rare to see an actual coconut on the beach…?)! Lather up after a day at the beach — or if your just at home and wanna feel beach-y — and you’ll be in your own little tropical paradise! I also love the matching Body Scrub which is PERFECT for a pre-self tanning exfoliation.
2. Doctor T’s Supergoop! SPF 30 Sunscreen Wipe
As important as sunscreen is, plenty of us forget how important it is to apply, especially when you want to get your tan on. That’s why I’m loving how easy Supergoop’s sunscreen wipes are. When it comes to beauty products I’m very big on the smell of the actual product, and I love the fact that the wipes don’t smell like sunscreen, because I for one hate the smell of sunscreen! The wipes are SPF 30 and water resistant so they will protect your skin while your in and out of the pool and are made with Green Tea so they’re perfect for sensitive skin. Throw a few of these wipes in beach bag and you’re good to go!
3. Vichy Eau Thermale Water Spray
After a long day at the beach your skin can start to feel dry — which is the worst! — but thanks to Vichy’s soothing Thermal Spa Water spray you can keep your skin hydrated without running your sunscreen, self tanner, body butter, etc. Love this stuff!

4. Kate Somerville Tan Towels
Self tanning is a MUST before hitting the beach or the pool and honestly, who wants to look pale at a pool party!? Kate Somerville’s Tan Towels are perfect for getting a natural-looking pre-tan glow! While a lot of self tanners these days can cause the dreaded Snooki look, towels will not make you look orange or cause streaking and dry within seconds! Does it get any better than that!? These are a must!
5. La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer with Sunscreen
Even if you’re not hitting the beach, sunscreen is uber important to include in your daily routine. You can use La Roche Posay’s Anti-Aging Primer (with Sunscreen) as a base before applying makeup, moisturizers, or any other products used daily. The best part about the product, besides the fact that it has UV protection, is that it wont leave your skin feeling sticky and blends well with other products — leaving a smooth finish.
