Summer Beauty Products

Today, I thought I'd share some of my favorite beauty products for the summer. I don't use a lot of  products and I am quickly frustrated when products don't live up to their hype. But these are products I use on a daily basis. 

The Olay In-Shower Body Lotion is a total game changer. Hands down the best product on this list. I've never found a body lotion that provided sufficient moisture without leaving a residue or making me feel greasy. Plus, I found it difficult to remember to put on  lotion  as part of my morning routine. Applying it after the shower meant I had to allow for drying time before getting dressed. If you have a dog, you might understand the challenge this presents. Sadie thought my legs were very tasty and lapped up my lotion-covered legs. The in-shower body lotion means I don't have to remember or fight the dog to put on lotion. Not to mention, it does a great job moisturizing and smells wonderfully.  The downside: it's difficult to find. I used to buy it while grocery shopping at Kroger. But, since I moved to DC, I've started buying it online from Wal-Mart.

I have packets of these oil absorbing sheets stashed everywhere. I do mean everywhere. Read: my desk, my work bag, and my purse. I also keep extras on hand. These are great at absorbing excess oil while leaving your make-up in tact. I have oily skin so I keep these within reach year-round, but I do use them more during the summer. 

Clinique Chubby Sticks are my favorite. I have tried the "Intense" Clinique Chubby Stick in colors similar to the cherry and strawberry, but I didn't love them nearly as much as the original. I didn't notice a difference in moisturizing or staying power, so I'll be sticking with the standard in chunky cherry and super strawberry. They are not as bright on as they appear in the picture and you have significant control on the color based on how many coats you apply. I find that these two colors cover all my bases, regardless of what I'm wearing (from peach to purple to red). They're easy to apply (i.e. don't need a mirror), stays longer than traditional chapstick, and offers some needed moisture.

Let me know what you think if you give any of these products a try. I hope you lvoe them as much as I do. 

Do you have any products that you absolutely love? What are they? I'd love to hear about them! Also, please let me know if you're interested in more posts like this!
