Best Beauty Finds for Summer

face:
laura mercier second skin cheek colour: like a “natural glow,” only better. Lotus Pink is my favorite!
the balm mary lou manizer: I got this highlighter in my Birchbox ages ago but just started playing with it…  fully hooked. Add it under your brows and in the inner corner of your eyes for instant brightness. It’s a neutral highlighter so no worries about a white tint. Addicted.
benefit they’re real mascara: a cult favorite, I can now see why. Can’t get enough of this stuff for a major lashes.
neutrogena naturals purifying face cleanser: immediately loved the super clean feeling it delivers — without drying out your skin — when I picked this up last week in Vermont.
red apple lip exfoliator: Designed for your lips by a brand that boasts a “gluten-free” lip line, I’m impressed how it made my lips softer, and makes bright lipsticks prettier on my lips (never want dry lips and bright lipstick!). A keeper.

hair:
drybar morning after shower cap: excellent banding really prevents water and steam from seeping in during showers. I found a similar version for less years ago at Sally Hansen but this is the closest thing I’ve found since. Well worth the mini investment if to help you go longer between washes.
beauty protector protect and detangle: the perfect on-the-go, multi-tasking product. Heat protectant, detangler and all-around awesomeness.
davines love smoothing shampoo: don’t let the plain bottle deceive you; this stuff is good. It’s natural (including the bottle), and majorly smooths out those pesky frizzes.
ojon damage reverse instant hair serum: I’ve been using this along the davines shampoo and my hair never has been less frizzy — and it’s summer in Florida! Can’t vouch this is totally responsible but I’m confident these its taming oils have been hugely helpful!

    I think I’m the only person on the planet who doesn’t like that Benefit mascara! Maybe it just takes getting used to? That lip exfoliator sounds amazing – must try!
