Prepare to rip off that cover up and expose your beautiful skin with the summertime essentials we cannot live without. These beauty boosters are sure to leave you soft, touchable and ready for endless summer nights.
AWAKEN THE SENSES
To celebrate the essence of the season, Dove is introducing its “scent of the summer” - Restore - the newest fragrance addition to the Dove go fresh product collection. With a luscious blue fig and bright, floral orange blossom scent, Restore is designed to further inspire the senses and will leave your skin smelling and feeling delightfully fresh and hydrated this summer season.
Free of sulfates, the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl products deliver on the top concerns of curly girls – moisture, definition and shine. This collection uses naturally-derived cleansers and botanicals, leaving curls feeling deeply conditioned with elastic bounce and that perfect spiral shape. The six-piece line offers women a customized hair care regimen that suits all curl types – from loose waves to tight curls. In addition to being gentle on the hair fiber, EverCurl’s sulfate-free formula causes very little friction on hair – which ultimately means fewer frizzies for curls.
SMOOTH SAILING AND SEXY SEA LEGS
Summer radiance begins with smooth, nourished skin. nyakio™ Kenyan Coffee Face Polish & Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub is a nourishing polish that instantly reveals improved texture. Gentle enough for the face, yet powerful enough to exfoliate the entire body, this natural product is perfect for every skin type. Fun fact: Nyakio's grandmother worked on a Kenyan coffee farm and taught Nyakio her beauty secrets for revealing more youthful-looking skin.
Walks along the boardwalk often lead to that famous wax paper wrapped sweet salt water taffy. This sweet fix can also be beneficial to your hair thanks to the Ouidad Wave Create Texture Taffy. This formula provides for touchable and effortless wavy hair, a coveted trend of the moment. While salt water taffy is a classic that sings summer, you can now bring beautiful waves into this season with Ouidad’s taffy. No matter if you sport wavy or straight locks, every base can benefit from a sexy, tousled style. We love that it is fortified with giant kelp seaweed extract which infuses locks with a high content of vitamins and minerals to nourish curls and add shine.
SUMMER LOVIN’ LIPS
This summer, make sure your lips are ready for a sudden romance. Pucker up with Lancôme in Love collection, Gloss In Love, the first gloss that truly loves your lips. Available in 12 vibrant shades, this gloss imparts unprecedented shine and addictive comfort with 6 hours of moisture. The new Expert Applicator doubles as a lip liner and shaper, defining and enhancing lips with lasting, saturated color.
SKIP SHOWER HOUR GO FOR COCKTAIL HOUR
Shower hour was the perfect time to write home from camp, but now shower hour is best used as cocktail hour. We are loving TouchBack Plus+ Color Leave-in Conditioner. Without time to stop for a shampoo, stick to a leave-in conditioner that will instantly boost color and protect against summer’s harsh UVA/UVB rays. Hydrate and nourish strands for beautiful locks that look radiant from day to night.
TOUGH LIKE A MAN, TOUCHABLE LIKE A WOMAN
There’s some men’s products that women love to steal and one of them is definitely AVEENO Men's Shave Gel. We love it because it prevents razor bumps and the gelly formula is easy to apply in any area. Go for a close, smooth shave while skin becomes moisturized and nourished. The ACTIVE NATURALS Natural Colloidal Oatmeal formula is fragrance free and healthy for skin which helps protect it from irritation and damage.
DEEP SEA CLEANING
Get ready to remove the gunk filled pore-clogging build-up with Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. In just one use, these strips are twice as effective as the leading pore cleanser at getting rid of pore-clogging build-up, dirt and oil that can cause blackheads. With regular use, they can actually reduce the appearance of pores. It’s cathartic to rip off the strip and stare at the tiny dots cluttering the pad – sayonara suckers!
