Summer has arrived (isn’t it telling of the heat?!!) and we are busy planning our beach trips and pool sessions to beat the scorching heat! We have to admit that we play product favorites during the summer and here are our top 3 summer essentials!

I’m a fan of a sunkissed glow. Since I’m in my 30s, staying under the sun for prolonged hours is a NO-NO (okay, sometimes I cheat but this is bad for my skin!). Pop Beauty Contour 101 is my current go-to for a beautiful, luminous glow!! If you can’t stay under the sun, then fake your tan!
This mauve shade is the perfect complement to morena skin. Nudes are totally in and this is one of my current must-have for nude tint. It brings out my tan more and it makes my lips more supple. I also like the subtle minty taste to it!
This cult-fave product is a must-have for that dewy, youthful look! The mud mask locks in moisture, and your skin feels baby smooth and becomes healthy looking after each use. When you are out on a beach escapade, all you need is your sexy bikini, spf and super smooth skin!!

I super love this because the water-based formula gives me all the coverage I need without it feeling sticky nor heavy, which is great for my oily and sensitive skin! It’s also infused with beneficial ingredients like green tea, rose water, and lavender, which help fight aging, hydrate, and soothe. I’m a sucker for anything that keeps skin looking naturally healthy and flawless! And it’s the perfect summer must-have because even though it can get scorching hot outside, this product is guaranteed not to melt off your face.
We all know that the sun is the skin’s greatest enemy, but sometimes we can’t help but soak in its rays especially when we’re out enjoying the beach with friends. Apart from bringing sunblock (and loads of it!), I always make sure to bring a tube of Aloe Derma’s Aloe Vera Gel to treat sunburned, irritated, and itchy skin. A quick tip: place it inside the refrigerator so it’s extra cool and relaxing!
Ever since I experimented with this shade last year (way before Kim Kardashian made it a thing. LOL.), I’ve been hooked! I love that it adds a pop of color to my lids yet it’s still wearable even on a normal day.

I love how moisturizing yet light this feels on my skin. Hydrating gel perfectly balances my combination skin like nobody’s business. I like to keep this on my fridge for a moisturizing and cooling treat for my face. Perfect for the summer!
The perfect matte peachy nude lippie that suits any skintone. I love how pigmented and creamy this is when you apply it. The color stays put for hours so that’s a plus!
This is a must in my beauty kit because it makes detangling my super damaged strands easier even if my hair is wet. Perfect for bringing to beach trips also!
Share with us what you have in your beauty kits this summer!! We’d love to hear from you!
