HYDRATE your Beauty Routine

Has your beauty routine gone dry? HYDRATE from head to toe with these must-have products for summer from Philip B, Lauren B Beauty, Avon Skincare, Rimmel London, and Molton Brown!

Philip B. African Shea Butter Gentle & Conditioning Shampoo ($30)

This two-in-one combo is specifically designed for color treated hair.  After just a few shampoos, I really saw a difference. It's like my hair has new life. It looks so much thicker and healthier, its actually amazing. Tangles aren't a problem either. This is one of the only shampoo & conditioner combos that I have ever tried that I can get a comb through my hair with no hassle after using it .It has a light pleasant scent that is not overbearing. It won't cancel out your favorite perfume. The shampoo lathers nicely and both rinse quickly leaving behind no sticky residue. 

Lauren B. Beauty Nail & Cuticle Balm ($30)

This cuticle balm is the perfect way to get your nails looking their best without the hefty nail salon prices. Just a little dab will soften the skin around your nails, making it much easier to remove it. This makes your nails look so much nicer and is a must before polishing.

SKIN SO SOFT Bug Guard ($10)

With the mosquito out full force, it was the perfect time to get these awesome products. Just a little of these repellents goes a long way. It goes on clean and its not sticky like some other repellents. It has a light citronella scent that is not overwhelming, and  it works great. When we were out today I didn't get one bite and either did my kids. Choose from sprays, creams, and even towelettes. They have straight bug sprays, and some that include SPF. A few are even water resistant. There were lots of things I liked about this product. First of all, its not at all greasy or sticky when its applied. I also like the scent. It was very light and doesn't smell like chemicals. It almost feels like you're applying regular skin cream. It addition, some of them water proof and sweat resistant.  And of course, most importantly, they worked perfectly. There was not one speck of sunburn or one bug bite on me or the kids even after a full eight hours in the sun. 

Molton Brown Coco & Sandalwood and Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea Body Lotion ($42 each)

I loved the feel of this lotion. It's so silky  and you will notice a difference as soon as it touches your skin. It rubs in easily, leaving behind no films or greasy residue, and it leaves your skin rose-petal soft. The scents are light and not overpowering.  The Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea has a nice flowery scent, while the Coco & Sandalwood is a little more earthy. They are also a wonderful source of skin nourishing nutrients.  It is great for dry or scaly skin, and will keep your skin feeling smooth and hydrated all summer long.
