Summer Beauty Must-Haves


Okay Florida, you can back off the heat now. I mean GEEZ. Can't a gal walk from her car to her work building at 9 a.m. without dripping sweat?!

It's safe to say that I'm ready for the fall.

But in the meantime, when the sun is still beaming down, I'm sharing a few of my beauty must-haves with you all. From tanning gel to sea salt spray, I'm breaking down my favorite products to use during the sunny months.

Let's start off with my favorite tanning product, shall we? I SWEAR by Bain de Soleil (you can purchase it here, too). I've been using their orange gelee for years - my mother uses it, too. While I'm already on the tanner side with my Cuban background, this tanning gel gives me an ultimate golden shade that I loveeeeee. For those that are super sensitive in the sun and burn easily, this may not be the product for you. The SPF is low, to reap it's tanning greatness. Just slap this baby on and in a few hours, you will thank me.

Key West Aloe - a new favorite of mine. I love both of these products of there's that I've had the chance to try! Their Save A Tan lotion seals in your fresh tan - plus it's coconut and key lime scented!! It's made with 80 percent Aloe Vera to help replenish moisture, prevent any peeling and lock in that golden glow. Another product of theirs that I've loved using is their Aloe Max 100! It provides relief from any skin irritations (hello 98 percent Aloe Vera!) and helps sooth skin. Both of these have become a permanent staple in my beach bag. Behold the easy way to get those beach waves - Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Salt Spray is one of my favorites!! Infused with dead sea salt and sea kelp, this spray helps you achieve that perfect just-been-at-the-beach goddess head of hair.

No gal likes dealing with razor bumps (UGH. the struggle is real sometimes). So, I've used Gigi No Bump Roll-On Skin Smoothing Gel for quite a while. It's completely transparent and dries quickly! Be sure to roll this stuff on right after hair removal for optimal smoothness. And be sure to hydrate those lips - nobody likes kissing a chapped mouth. I've fallen in love with the Malin+Goetz mojito lip balm. Not only does it smell/taste delicious, it keeps my lips looking supple all day long. And yes, I do love my mojitos. :)

The last thing that I always have with me is a great hat! Whether it's floppy or sporty, I bring along something to shield my eyes and face from the sun. Because by the end of the beach day, I'm ready to cover up!

  6. It is such a weird time. Like today in Texas, I'm chilly (anything below 75 is chilly to me lol). But I bet tomorrow it will be unbearably hot again lol. Thanks for sharing your favorite "in the sun" products!

    1. Definitely look into it, Darcy! It has been my go-to ever since I can remember! Don't be alarmed when you put it on though, it has a bit of pale orange tint that turns bronze in the sun! xx

  16. This type of products make your skin more glowing. These types of products hide your marks. But whiling using that products, make it clear that which product is good for your skin. Because some time your face can be get effected by skin infection problems.
