Summer Essentials

So, the official start of summer is June 21st - but we all know that Memorial Day - is the unofficial kick-off to the summer season. So I've decided to put together a list of essentials every girl should have for the hottest season of the year ... Enjoy !!!


REDKEN Color Extend SUN - After-Sun Shampoo, After-Sun Mask, Sparkling Shield

How smart is it to create a line for post-sun exposure ?? Our hair will have more exposure to the sun in the next two - three months than it will all year, so its our duty to treat it right. I've tried this product line, and I can proudly say its a justified investment.

Rotating Tooth Comb ($10.99) by Original Hair Doctor

I was introduced to this comb by a Redken stylist back in January, when she used it on my hair, and I've been a fan ever since. I made it my business to search till I found them for myself , and I figured I spread the wealth. These combs are like magic. They detangle the most tangled hair (i.e., after the constant beach hair styles, waves, over use of product in the hair, etc.... ) rapidly , with close to no hair "pull-out" ( in comparison to conventional grooming combs).


Mystic Tan Perfect Tan Sunless Tanning Kit for the Body ($54)

What better way to kick off that summer glow ( whether you're vacationing or not) , than with a quick spray tan. This tan works like a charm , and the great thing about this kit is the Boost Sunless Enhancing Moisturizer - it gives the body a beautiful golden -shimmer glow. Its great on the legs , and decolletage.

LaLicious Whipped Body Soap in Tahitian Flower ($18)

Once applying self-tanner , exfoliating body scrubs are OUT of the question.. so the best choice is a lovely whipped option by LaLicious in Tahitian Flower - which smells like heaven . ** It also can be purchased in travel (TSA approved) sizes as well .


eyeQuatic - waterproof summer essentials kit
($35) Tarte Cosmetics

This set includes 3 lock & roll creaseless cream & powder shadow duos - in fabulous tropical shades ( turquoise , citrine and tanzanite), a deluxe lights, camera, splashes! waterproof mascara. Since it's waterproof - you can take a quick dip in the pool / beach - and still come out looking as fabulous as you went it!!! The best treat of all ... a mod-chic headscarf - which will be a staple in your summer wardrobe!!

Labbro Più Paffuto Tinted Lip Plumper - Borghese ($31.50)

Finally color counter parts to the amazing lip plumper by Borghese !!! I love that the color options are subtle , rose and neutral shades - since red statement lips have been the rage all around, this is a nice change.
