Summer Beauty Essentials...

Posted by Rachel Parcell on

Ok ladies, I am super specific about my beauty essentials I use during the summer so I wanted to do a post dedicated to all of my favorite summer products, that in my book, are must-haves!

Ok here we go...


Moroccan Oil Repair Shampoo and Condtioner - This shampoo/Conditioner smells like a beach or somewhere tropical so it's my fave formula to use during the summer! It also makes my hair silky smooth!

Beauty Protector Leave in Detangler - I never do not have this detangler in my bathroom cabinet. It's an essential for both me and Isla Rose after we've been swimming and our hair has gotten tangled. I can't live without this one and it smells like sugar!!!!!

Nècessaire Body Lotion (c/o)- This is my fave body lotion. I lather both me and my kids in this stuff after our nightly bath. My kids are outside most of the day in the summer so their skin gets dry from the heat so I always make sure to moisturize.

Supergoop Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 - Hands down. Fave sunscreen!! The mouse goes on like butter!

Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 - I keep this in my bag. I set my makeup with it in the mornings and thoughout the day reapply!

BeautyBio The Protector Daily Defense Cream - I use this as my primer in the summer. I wear this every sing day!! Sunscreen. Sunscreen. Sunscreen!! It's so important to protect your skin- especially your face!

BeautyBio The Radiance Brightening Omega + Rosehip Seed Facial Oil - I love putting this under my foundation for a summer glow/dewy look!

Loving Tan Deluxe Gradual Tan Nourishing Tinted Body Lotion - I use this if I want to enhance my tan for a night out! It goes on instantly but it will come off when you shower. But it does the trick when you want to deepen your tan for a night!!

Tarte Self Tanner Applicator Mitt - I use this mitt to apply all of my self tanners. It protects my hands from looking super orange.

South Seas Tahitian Tan Mist Instant Self Tanner - I use this on my face at night after I wash my face if I want to wake up with a deeper glow. I use it on my arms and legs too! It's easy to apply, has a gorgeous color and will stay on for a few days.

Kopari Coconut Oil Deodorant - This is a natural deodorant and it smells amazing!

Hoola Benefit Bronzer - This is my all-time favorite bronzer!

Moroccan Oil Treatment - I use this after my hair is dry and before I style it. Adds a soft shine and smells amazing!

Wet Brush - I literally can not brush my hair with any other brush.

Buxom Lipgloss in White Russian - Fave gloss for a natural shine. So pretty when you have a glow on your face from the South Seas Tan.

Tom Ford Soleil Flawless Glow Foundation - I love this foundation because it has SPF (what?). I use this for a day or night out and for when I want full coverage.

Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 - I use this if I'm going to be at the pool or for just a day at home. I buy a few shades darker than my skin match so I have more of a glow.

Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof - this is my fave waterproof mascara. I always have waterproof in the summer if we last minute decide to hop in the pool, I don't have to worry about it coming off.

Let me know if any of you have tried any of these products, and if you haven't and have been looking for some tried and true summer beauty essentials!
