Today, I am sharing with you my top drugstore summertime beauty essentials. Like most of you, I like to keep things to a minimum in the summer. There is nothing like heat and humidity to motivate someone to keep things simple in their beauty routine. I have a few go-to beauty essentials that I find myself continually reaching for this summer and wanted to share with you. Not only are these tried and true, but they’re so affordable!
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – I think I have been using Neutrogena face lotion since I was a teenager. This is seriously the most perfect, light moisturizer WITH SPF! I cannot tell you how important it is to me that it is full coverage and has SPF. I wear this all year-long, but it comes in most handy during the sunny months.
I have been using Dove deodorant for years now and rely on it every single day. When Dove sent me this invisible dry spray I was a bit hesitant at first and held off until the summer months and so happy I gave it a try. This stuff is a game changer! It’s perfect for wearing any type of sleeveless dress or tank – just spray it on and it dries perfectly invisible, without any residue. It is perfect for the summertime for a clean look and the scent is so, so fresh.
I swear by CoverGirl mascara. I wear it every single day and love the volume. In the summer, I am more inclined to mx things up and use their waterproof version for a day at the beach or hanging by the pool. It stays and doesn’t smudge under my eyes. (I also like this one.)
Have you guys used Micellar water yet?!! If not, you have to try it. My girlfriend recommended it to me and I honestly had no idea what it was. As I started to look into it, the more curious I got and found out how simple it was. I now use it every night to take off my make-up. You just apply it to a cotton round and wipe your face. It deeps cleans and refreshes your skin. I love it. Try it!
I’ve told you about my love for Baby Lips, and this is like the older sister version. I feel like I graduated so to speak to this more pigmented crayon. I love the color and it’s perfect for summertime, day or night.
I am a sucker for a bright nail in the summertime. Essie’s Clam Bake is the perfect summer shade and my go-to. BUT full-disclosure, I have been gravitating toward OPI’s FUNNY BUNNY recently! I love the clean look and how it looks with a nice tan. Either or, you can’t go wrong with one of these!
