The quickest way to smooth skin is to exfoliate. This is true year round but in the summer months it’s crazy essential to exfoliate. Exfoliation will help make your skin smooth to the touch and will give you a more natural looking/even tan. Exfoliation with scrubby loofah, eco-beads, and sugar—now that’s deep! This sea-inspired Snarky™ transforms your driest skin while hydrating and soothing with marine nutrients like algae and nori, a type of seaweed, plus softening shea butter, scented with citrus, melon, coconut, and vanilla.
Adding moisture to the skin is essential as temps rise. No one wants to look ashy while in that barely there dress. My favorite body moisturizer for the summer is coconut oil. For summer beauty try Trop the Beat Coconut Oil Balm. This sun-sweet pineapple and vibrant hibiscus-scented body balm nourishes from head to toe with a simple blend of coconut oil, safflower oil, and shea butter to deeply hydrate and soothe skin without the mess of traditional coconut oils. This blend of naturally based ingredients has a higher melting point than coconut oil on its own, so you can use this pampering body balm all summer without it leaking everywhere! Plus, it adds moisture literally anywhere you need it, and it feels especially pampering when used after you’ve spent time in the sun.
Big Fat Yummy Hand Cream is a staple in my purse, desk, car, etc. I LOVE this stuff!! It’s very exciting that the summer time favorite scent, Beach Blanket, is back for another season of fragrant, hydrating, non-greasy fun! Dry feeling hands deserve a dose of delicious, decadent moisture. With its blend of naturally based and quick-absorbing ingredients, like apricot kernel and coconut oils, plus vitamin E, and aloe vera, Beach Blanket Big Fat Yummy Hand Crème leaves hands feeling soft and smooth without feeling gross and greasy with a soft citrus, creamy coconut, and sweet vanilla scent.
Fun lips are my go to for summer makeup looks. What better way to add a little of the mermaid vibe into your daily look than a fun iridescent lip topper? Add sheer, iridescent purple perfection to your daytime look or go glam for the evening with Wanna Be On Top Top Coat. This topper looks fabulous on all of your favorite Vial Shades and adds variety to long-lasting looks.

If I had to pick my favorite beauty product I’d have to say highlighters. I love the way highlighter has the power of giving you a little natural glow to fairy queen, glowing for the Gods in your face dazzle. I love these new liquid highlighters from Perfectly Posh. There are 3 – Maiden Voyage is the perfect blam highlighter for festivals, concerts, pride, etc. Working Pearl can give a soft glow to blinding highlight. ( think inner corners) and Pinking Out Loud is the perfect pink highlight ( personal fav). I know some of you are uncomfortable with liquid highlighters, let me know if you’d like a tutorial on how to use it. 🙂
No look is complete without a good setting spray. Setting sprays seal in all your hard work and helps makeup last longer. 🙂 All Set Setting Spray is enhanced with coconut water to be ultra hydrating. It effectively locks your look without a sticky feel. Coconut forms a fresh feeling film that locks in hydration and your foundation so it doesn’t flake away. Plus it provides an instant, fresh glow any time of day with or without makeup.
A good face mask is one of the easiest ways you can pamper your skin. You can put on a mask and relax, catch up on your favorite series, or do adulting things like cooking or doing the laundry – totally up to you. I love reviewing masks for you guys because it gives me an excuse to spoil myself while babying my skin with the nutrients it needs, like probiotics. Probiotics are great for your gut and their pH balancing microbes are great for your skin. This luxurious, whipped OFF mask contains probiotic yogurt cultures and fermented pomegranate to help restore and re-balance a stressed out complexion. Fruit enzymes help exfoliate while soothing aloe, cucumber, and a whipped mixture of kaolin and bentonite clays work to clean and absorb excess oil leaving behind a more even skin tone.
I’ve been considering using a self tanner. Natural tanning is the literally the dumbest thing ever, you know, because the sun is a ticking time bomb of death. I’m very intrigued by a gradual tanning process, little changes are easier for me to deal with. This leave-on, gradual tanning body crème delivers soft, smooth skin with a natural glow thanks to a touch of bronzing DHA in a blend of supremely moisturizing squalane, safflower oil, and sweet almond oil while hydrating with sodium hyaluronate and shea butter. Scented with light, airy peach. Apply a layer from neck to toes or targeted areas for a gradual tan. Color usually starts to develop within 2–4 hours. Apply every day for 1 week for a deep tan, or once a week for a slight glow.
So there you are, some great self care products to get you feeling the mermaid vibes. Let me know if there is anything you’d like for me to review.
