Beauty Products for Summer 2018

TheMJElle_Must-Have Beauty Products For Summer

With Summer officially kicking off tomorrow, the next few months are going to be filled with beach days, outdoor festival weekends and patio nights. The warm weather brings endless opportunities for fun in the sun but it also means that we need beauty products that can keep up with the heat. I’ve narrowed down beauty products for summer after playing around with some great beauty products all spring, to help you look fresh and fabulous while avoiding a melting contour and humidity stricken hair.

Plus: Keep reading to learn how you can win one of my favourite beauty products for summer, a bottle of Omorovicza’s Acid Fix!

Hynt Beauty Day Prep

The key to perfect summer makeup that will last is a good base, and I’ve been so happy with Hynt Beauty’s Day Prep as my primer. But this light weight moisturizing primer is so much more, providing your skin with Broad Spectrum SPF 25 thanks to micronized Titanium Dioxide. It has a great citrusy fresh scent that although is synthetic*, is not overbearing and because its not greasy, you don’t have to worry about breakouts. Even when I’m not applying makeup, you can still find me using this as an SPF moisturizer all year long!

* Correction: No one’s perfect, yes that includes me! I made a slight error when describing the scent of the Hynt Beauty Day Prep: it is NOT synthetic at all, and actually doesn’t even originate from citrus. Rather, it’s a natural scent produced by these skin-benefiting ingredients: Wild Pansy Extract, Liquorice Root Extract and Plantain Extract. The Detox Market does not carry any products with synthetic fragrances.

Available at The Detox Market, $74

Marc Anthony Hair Care Curl & Smoothing Cocktails

Summer hair is just as important as summer skin, and I love using Marc Anthony products for both my hair styling and hair care needs. I have been completely obsessed with the new Cocktail line that they lauched a little while ago, combining 2 key Marc Anthony products in one bottle for a variety of styling needs. For summer, I’d have to say the two key products have to be their Curl Cocktail and Smoothing Cocktail, to take you from saltwater curls to sleek ponytails effortlessly. Both bottles have their respective frizz-free products combined with style targeted ones: the Curl Cocktail with Defrizzing Lotion and Defining Cream and the Smoothing Cocktail with a Smoothing Cream and Glossing Lotion.

Available where Marc Anthony products are sold, $12 each.

Skin Owl Geranium Beauty Drops

I’ve switched out all of my face creams for Skin Owl’s Geranium Beauty Drops as my daily moisturizer and my skin has never been happier! It can be used on its own like I do, or added to your moisturizer as a little booster. Providing so much more than hydration, this serum-like product helps balance and decongest your skin while fighting signs of aging. This 2 ingredient oil is made from organic Argania Spinosa Extract and organic Rose Geranium Oil so you can feel good using this simple yet powerful product.

And just launched last week The Detox Market launched their Sunny Days Bundle with limited quantities. Spend $240 before tax and get a mega pack filled with fabulous products from The Detox Market, a $290+ value! But hurry, quantities are limited and a deal this good WON’T last!

Available at The Detox Market, $4

Omorovicza Acid Fix

I’ve been using Omorovicza products for a few months now, and particularly their Acid Fix for about a month now. This acid peel serum is more of a multi-purpose treatment that exfoliates, brightens and plumps the skin thanks to BHA and AHA acids. It’s the perfect product for summer as it helps your skin recover from sun damage, acne and pollution – factors we all need a bit of help with during those hot summer days especially when they’re spent in the city. Because this treatment peels and resurfaces your skin it’s recommend for use at night after cleansing your skin which you can then follow with your serums and night moisturizers.

Available at Nordstrom, $160

Institut Esthederm Sun Bronz

It wouldn’t be a summer beauty picks list without including a tanning product, and if a summer glow is what you’re looking for than you might want to try out Institut Esthederm’s Sun Bronz. This dry oil not only helps to enhance sun kissed skin, but it also has active age protection while keeping skin moisturized while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and helping your tan last. Because this product is meant to intensify tans and does not have any SPF protection, it’s recommended for people who tan easily and burn rarely.

Available at Beautysense, $70
