This week’s five favorites are all my favorite summer themed picks ranging from my new must-have body oil to self tanning towelettes I never thought I’d use (I’m more of a mousse or lotion girl) and a tan extender that really works. There’s at least one thing here for everyone.
Lather Summer Nights Body Oil, $16, is a moisturizing body oil that I like to use at night after a nice, hot shower. There are three different scents, but lavender is my favorite as it calms my mind and helps me relax. I’m a huge fan of using body oils as opposed to lotions at night and if my skin is really dry, I’ll mix an oil into my lotion and pull double duty.
Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo, $24, has a matching conditioner. Infused with minerals and sea botanicals, they’re designed to create a great base for a beachy ‘do. After all, Bumble & Bumble does have the best Surf Spray around.
L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Towelettes, $9.99, are a pack of tanning towelettes that if used correctly, don’t leave streaks. Intimidated to use them at first, I created circular motions all over my body and face with a single towelette and in a few hours a bronze glow developed. Plus, they’re great for travel.
Kate Somerville Tan Maximizer, $48, replaces body lotion twice a day before sun exposure. It’s great to use prior to going on vacation to help accentuate your tan. Then, after you self tan or get a sun kissed glow, continue use and it moisturizes with black snakeroot that also keeps your skin in check.
Yves Rocher Monoi de Tahiti All Purpose Oil, $9.90, smells like the islands. It absorbs quickly into your skin to help hydrate or maintain your tan, but can also be used on your hair to tame frizzies. You can also just put a bit on your pulse points for the fragrance alone.
