Summer Beauty Essentials

I’ll take summer over winter any day…even with the humidity and heat and the beauty challenges that they bring.

For me, those challenges are mostly in the hair department.  Luckily, Aveda was kind enough to send along some products for me to sample. I’ve used Aveda’s hair products for years and was so happy to receive a few new ones in the mail from them.  Two stand outs were the thickening tonic and the smooth infusion-as my hair tends to frizz out in the summer. So far so good – as these two simple to use hair serums seem to be keeping my curls and cowlicks looking straight and frizz free.

In addition, two big beauty boosters are sleep and water. I’m trying my best to drink more water and get more sleep-investing in both departments seemed like a smart idea. I’ve sworn by silk pillow cases for years and recently upped my game with these soft cases over at Net- a – Porter.  They do the trick for keeping sheet marks at bay and extending your blow outs. I’ve also finally bought a glass water bottle, I think I was the last mom in town to get one of these trendy bkr water bottles.

Finally,  a few products that I’m loving lately. Reinvested in several tubes of Bobbi Browns High Shimmer Lip Gloss in pastel, a favorite of mine for a few years now. And two new moisturizing facial products that I’m also loving Avene’s thermal spring water spray, which I discovered in the airport in Paris and Kate Sommerivilles’ Dermal Quench Liquid Lift with oxygen, came highly recommended to me by a friend with flawless skin.  What new products are in your summer beauty routine? I’d love to know!

  1. Love the glass water bottle!! Now your are next to last mom! I'm a big believer in silk pillow cases, it really does make a difference on your face and hair. I hand wash mine and they've lasted for over a year. Great collection of items!
