Summer Essentials

Happy Monday friends! Today is our first full day at Rosemary Beach, and we are so excited to spend this week soaking up the sun, and eating all of the good food. Calories don't count when you're on vacay...right?! Anyways, I thought it would be fun to share some of my Summer Beauty Essentials with y'all today.  All of these are products that I'm currently using, and most are products that I have been using for years.

1. MOROCCAN OIL TREATMENT - I use Moroccan Oil Treatment year round, but I feel like this stuff saves my hair during the summer months. I spend so much time in the sun throughout the summer months, and without this stuff my hair would be so dry. This product leaves my hair feeling soft and looking shiny all summer long.

2. SUN BUM SPF 15 SUNSCREEN - This is my absolute favorite sunscreen. I don't burn very easily so I usually just go with SPF 15, but it comes in SPF 25, SPF 50, etc. as well. This is definitely a summer must-have for me. Especially when at the pool, lake, or beach.

3. COVER GIRL WATER PROOF MASCARA -  A waterproof mascara is a must-have for me during the summertime. I've been using this mascara since high school, and have never found another waterproof mascara that I love more. I've tried more expensive brands, but this is always the one I go back to.

4. FRESH SUGAR LIP BALM - I think I've talked about this lip balm before, but it's one that I use year-round. It's perfect for the summer months because it has SPF 15.

5. MOROCCAN OIL SEA SALT SPRAY - This sea salt spray is a life saver for those days when you leave the pool or beach, and need something to bring your hair back to life. I usually spray this stuff in my hair, add some of the Moroccan Oil Treatment and scrunch my hair up a bit, and I have some messy beach waves.

6. ULTRA REPAIR CREAM - I don't know about y'all, but my skin stays dry during the summertime. This repair cream lotion is a LIFE SAVER. I wear it daily and it is by far the best/most moisturizing lotion I've ever tried.

7. CUCUMBER SCENTED FACE WIPES - My face usually feels kinda gross and needs a little refresher after leaving the pool, lake, beach, etc. and these facial wipes are my go-to. The cucumber scent is so refreshing and they leave my face feeling so clean.

8. LAURA GELLER BLUSH/BRONZER - A bronzer is a must for me during the summer months because I want more of a "glow" when I put my makeup on. I love this one because it works as both a blush and bronzer.

9. MAKEUP FOREVER SPF 25 LIGHT FACE TINT - I've only been using this product for a few months, after getting it in one of my monthly Sephora boxes. I love how light it is and that is has SPF. I put it on when I don't want to "go all out" with my makeup. It's perfect for days when I'm running errands and just want something light to wear.

10. SUMMER NAIL POLISHES - I love having my nails painted year round, but during the summertime, I love using bright, fun colors. OPI's Cajun Shrimp and Essie's Mint Candy Apple are two of my go-to nail colors for summer.

Have a great week loves!


  1. Love those nail polish colors! I am kind of jealous your skin is dry in the summer - I have the opposite problem as mine gets so greasy!

    1. They’re my favorite summer colors! Mine gets oily sometimes, but gets dry when I spend a lot of time in the sun!
