The products in my beauty/skincare arsenal changes every summer, almost. It seems like I’ll find a product that feels like we are going to be summer buddies for YEARS, but only to have a big disagreement (READ:breakout or allergic reaction) or they move away (READ: discontinued).
So, with that being said, here are some products that I’ve been loving in these super hot months. Some are past friends and some are new acquaintances. Anyway…
- Lady Anti-Monkey Butt Powder, $5.95 – I was recently sent this to review, but it stayed on my makeup desk for about a week before I decided to go ahead and give it ago before I headed out to have a nice walk in the bad heat. Curvy girls know chaffed skin, especially on the thighs in the summer months . Well, this powder is heaven sent with satiny smooth powder that helps prevent chaffed thighs formed from friction on the skin, be it from exercising or just having to be in the heat. This powder feels so smooth and cool, that I practically use it everyday and keep in my gym bag.
- Dove Go Fresh Deodorant in Cucumber and Green Tea, $3.83 – I LOVE THIS SCENT! First of all, I love Dove products. The soap, body washes, and even some of their hair products. Their deodorants are quite lovely. Not only do they smell amazing, but they also tend to last all day. However, this Cucumber and Green Tea scent is everything to me. The smell is cool, calm, and just screams spring summer to me. Although, I was introduced to this scent via the lotion, I’ve been buying this deodorant every spring summer for the past couple of years. I have a feeling this is going to be a summer staple for me for YEARS.
- Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Lotion, $8.49 – A past summer love that I swooned about on Stained Couture before that I’ve recently taken up an interest in again. My legs are super pale thanks to my love of not showing my legs or distaste in showing my legs. Same difference. Ehh. Anyway, I threw this in my big red cart at Target a couple of weeks ago and my mind was instantly reminded as to why I used to love this lotion. Gradually tan and moisturized legs. Love.
- Aveeno Active Naturals Body Wash Hydrating Fig & Shea Butter, $5.59 – Who knew fig could smell so amazing paired with shea butter? Well, it does, especially in this Aveeno body wash. My sister gave me this body was last week and as soon as I used it, I planned to hunt down the lotion version. Unfortunately, I can’t find a lotion version, but I don’t really need it after using this body wash. It’s super hydrating and leaves my skin soft and smooth.
