For me, summertime beauty is all about ease and using minimal products. Add into the mix a newborn and lack of going too many places thanks to Covid, I’m even more so than usual all about items that make you look and feel better without too much effort. I’ve been using these three items almost everyday this summer so wanted to share them with all of you before summer flies on by!
Kristin Ess Sea Salt Air Dry Spray-The thing I want to spend the least amount of time on in the summer- my hair! My hair has just enough natural wave to it that if I attempt to do too much during the hot humid days, it just frizzes up. Rather than fight it, decided it would be easier to fully embrace it this summer and was looking for a great salt spray or beach wave spray I could use. I ordered this Kristin Ess sea salt spray from Target in June and have been hooked ever since. You spray it on your damp hair, give a scrunch and it defines your natural waves making them pop a bit more. I love it because it makes me feel like I did my hair even though I did not and you can just totally air dry. When I first used it I thought it was slightly crunchy, but discovered I was spraying too much. You don’t need a ton of this product so a light spraying is best if you want to avoid that crunchy scrunched feel.
Supergoop’s Glowscreen– Summer definitely requires wearing SPF every day if you don’t already do so (you should!). I don’t really like wearing much face makeup regardless of the season so the likelihood of finding me in a full face of makeup on a hot day is pretty low. This Supergoop Glowscreen sunscreen however is the best invention ever because it gives me the daily sun protection I need with a little bit of glow to make your skin glow with minimal effort. I wear this every day and love how it makes me feel a bit made up even though I am not. As the day goes on, I also love using the Supergoop mist to give myself a little extra SPF protection.
Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara– The next item isn’t really summer time specific, but I just discovered it this summer so adding to the list. The one beauty product I cannot survive a day without wearing is mascara. It makes me feel alive and so I wear it every day. I recently tried Ilia’s Limitless Lash mascara and I’m obsessed! This mascara is all natural, made from bee and canuba waxes. While I love using natural products, it means nothing to me if the product doesn’t actually work. This mascara lifts every lash, lengthens and overall helps to define my eyes so I would absolutely say it works!
