Must-Have Summer Beauty Essentials

I love Summer and getting outside and enjoying the fresh air. This past winter seemed to drag on and on. Did you see that it even snowed again in some areas this past weekend? What! Summer nights can’t come soon enough.This year we are moving during the Summer time so I wanted to prepare myself early and pick up all of my summer beauty products right away. I thought I would share with you my Summer time must haves in the beauty department.
My first must have is sunblock. You can’t do Summer without sunblock, especially if you are like me and burn as soon as the sun touches you. Ok, maybe not that quickly but it sure feels like it.

Protecting your body with sunblock is a must but you also can’t forget the lips. That is why I  love wet n wild’s juicy lip balm with spf 15. If you love watermelon then I don’t have to explain to you how amazing this smells.

Just as important as the sunblock is the deodorant. This is a self explanatory one. None of us want stinky arm pits. 😉

You can’t wear fun new sandals and flip flops without some cute nail polish for your toes. I really like this fun pink color by Broadway Nails in Jenny’s Pout.

Another thing I can’t do without in the Summer time is makeup removing wipes. There is nothing worse than being out at the beach or playing outside with your kiddos and needing a fresh face. These facial towelettes will get rid of all that dirt and grime from a long day of fun.

Lastly, my hair gets all kinds of crazy during the hot humid Summer. I love Garnier’s Anti-Humidity argan oil. It works great at keeping the frizz at bay. Plus it smells great as well.

The best thing about these products is that I picked all of them up in a one stop shop at Dollar General and much cheaper than other retail stores. So if you are looking to pick up some Summer essentials for yourself check out what all Dollar General has to over before spending overpriced elsewhere.

I love your list. My nails are ALWAYS painted and I always have lip balm or gloss with me!!!

Lauren May 14, 2014 - 12:55 PM

I like your list of essentials! Sunscreen is such a big one for me during the summer. That and self tanner because I am so pale!

Melissa Coleman May 14, 2014 - 7:31 PM

Yes, self tanner is another good one. I am super pale too and don’t do the tanning bed thing.

Rachael May 14, 2014 - 1:06 PM

This is a good list of summer essentials. I have all of them!

Lindsey @ Redhead Baby Mama May 14, 2014 - 1:28 PM

I started using a more natural lip balm – I’ll have to check the SPF. Great collection!

Henrietta May 14, 2014 - 2:58 PM

This truly is a must-have list of summer essentials! My daughter and I use a lo tof the makeup remover wipes!

Janel (A Mom's Take) May 14, 2014 - 3:14 PM

Great essentials. I have to have a good lip balm with SPF and tinted lotion. A good bronzer doesn’t hurt either.

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement May 14, 2014 - 5:18 PM

I’m most definitely with you on the sub block! I swear I go out to get the mail and I get burnt. It’s ridiculous which is why I like to bathe in sunblock before I leave the house because there’s nothing more uncomfortable then a bad burn 🙁

Melissa Coleman May 14, 2014 - 7:33 PM

I have heard that nothing over 30 SPF really does anything different for you but hey it makes me feel more protected whether it does or not. lol

Karen May 14, 2014 - 4:28 PM

I like everything you have on your list. I definitely need that anti-frizz hair serum. BB cream with sunblock is always on my summer list!

Scott May 14, 2014 - 4:35 PM

We’ve also had good luck at Dollar General for summer products like this. Unless we have coupons – ours doesn’t accept them.

Melissa Coleman May 14, 2014 - 7:32 PM

I haven’t tried using coupons at ours but I thought they accepted them, maybe not anymore.

brett May 14, 2014 - 7:47 PM

anti humidity? say what now? i know where i’m going tomorrow!

Liz Mays May 14, 2014 - 5:52 PM

I really love makeup remover towelettes. I rely on those when I travel so much!

Debbie Denny May 14, 2014 - 6:06 PM

Great list of necessary products. Works for a good summer.

veronica May 14, 2014 - 8:17 PM

I love the list of must-haves you have featured today. I need these things

Amy Desrosiers May 14, 2014 - 6:46 PM

I love that Wet n Wild is cheap, but super effective and yummy smelling!!

Debra May 14, 2014 - 6:47 PM

Sunscreen is a definite one to have. I’d also say the moist wipes too are great to have on hand to cool off.

Beth@FrugalFroggie May 14, 2014 - 9:14 PM

Sunscreen is a must. And handiwipes to clean up messes. And water to drink. Those are my essentials.

Jenn @ The Rebel Chick May 14, 2014 - 7:20 PM

Watermelon lip balm you say! I must try some of that!

Pauline Cabrera May 14, 2014 - 9:45 PM

There is just some essential stuff that every woman should have during this summer. I believe all the things you mentioned are truly important to survive this summer. 🙂

Carly Bellard May 14, 2014 - 7:58 PM

I need a new sunscreen for my face. I have such sensitive skin- finding a good one is tough.

Melissa Coleman May 15, 2014 - 6:24 PM

For my face I like to use either makeup with SPF or if i’m not going to use makeup I will sometimes use baby sunscreen.

Melissa May 14, 2014 - 8:25 PM

Great picks! I WANT that lip balm!

Hanan May 14, 2014 - 11:04 PM

I have crazy frizzy hair. I should try that Garnier oil!

StacieinAtlanta May 15, 2014 - 6:49 AM

That’s a great summer list. Sunscreen is a must; I will burn in 30 seconds flat if I forget to apply the stuff.

Tracey May 15, 2014 - 7:27 AM

The facial towelettes are always my go to for summer! I keep them in purse.

Christie May 15, 2014 - 8:54 AM

I agree with the anti-humidity oil! Especially here in Florida, I use it everyday!

Autumn May 15, 2014 - 11:29 AM

Great choices! The anti-humidity argan oil from Garnier sounds amazing! (And yeah, the right deodorant can really make a difference, too!)

Dina May 15, 2014 - 12:21 PM

I just bought new deo and bought my sons some face wipes. All I have left to get is more sunscreen.

krystal May 15, 2014 - 12:47 PM

the towelettes are my favorite. they are so handy in the Florida heat and humidity!

Shell May 15, 2014 - 4:40 PM

Sunblock is a must for me, too. So are hair ties- the heat will get to me and I need a way to get my hair up.

Melissa Coleman May 15, 2014 - 6:28 PM

Yes! I can’t believe I forgot hair ties. I definitely use them on a daily basis with my long and thick hair.

Dawn May 16, 2014 - 2:47 AM

I love everything that I have ever tried from Garnier Fructis. That lip balm looks fabulous, too.

Onica {MommyFactor} May 16, 2014 - 2:55 PM

For summer I can’t be without sunblock. I’ve been sun burned before and it was not nice.

Janeane Davis May 16, 2014 - 5:30 PM

Yes, this is a nice list of summer essentials They will help make summer easier, cleaner and sweeter.
