Elle's Favorite Summer Beauty Products

Today I'm sharing just a *few* of my favorite Summer Beauty Products.
Because I'm an indecisive Libra, I might've shared more than a few
I hope you find some new favorites.
Be sure to share yours below! Enjoy.

F A C E + B O D Y + H A I R
  • Sunscreen--I switch these so often! Ocean Potion, Hawaiian Tropic, Bullfrog, etc. (not pictured)
  • Body Wash--The Body Shop's Coconut Shower Cream or Caress' Tahitian Renewal. Both smell like summer to me. One moisturizes and the other exfoliates.
  • Conditioner--Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. I know I'm constantly posting this, but I LOVE it. I'm talking Holy Grail product here--so many uses. And it smells like amazingness.
  • Body Oil--Vaseline Body Gel Oil in Cocoa Butter. This gives a subtle sheen without being too greasy.
  • Beachy Waves Spray--Not Your Mother's Beach Babe. So far, I love every product I've tried from this line. And I want them all! My fave is my Sea Salt Spray I shared yesterday.
  • Tan in a Can--Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. Perfect for summer parties and weddings--it hides veins too!
  • Self-Tanner--Jergen's Natural Glow. I've used the face and body for years. So glad it has spf in it now!
  • Highlight/Shine--ELF All Over Stick in Golden Peach & Nuxe Golden Shimmer Dry Oil, for when you want a little highlight or a lot of shimmer.

  • Polishes--Orly (Oh Cabana Boy), L'Oreal (Boozy Brunch), ULTA (Oh!). Because you need a fun color reminiscent of unicorns/Lisa Frank, a coral, and a golden glittery peach (more pics below).
  • Bronzer--I've got a bigger post on this coming, but I love Too Faced's Chocolate Soleil.
  • Blotting Papers--These were a dollar from F21, but any brand is fine. Use on oily faces or greasy bangs.
  • Shadow--Hard Candy's Baked Shadow Duos in High Maintenance. I love neutrals, but neutrals with a metallic finish is fitting for summer. It's a nice change. 
  • Tinted Moisturizer--I am more likely to wear a BB cream, but since I've featured those so much lately, I thought I'd share ELF's version. It's cheaper than my beloved Cover Girl's version.
  • Lips--Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef, Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Sunset Peach or Bellini, and Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I love all of the shades of the Babylips, with Pink Punch, Peppermint, or Peach Kiss as my faves. They're super moisturizing, with sheer color & have spf!
  • Scent--I don't own a lot of perfumes, due to the migraines most scents cause. I tend to rely on body wash or my hair (it usually smells like my discontinued Sunsilk or the 3 Min Miracle). I'm still crazy about my Travalo refillable perfume atomizer and it's currently full with Miss Dior Cherie.  
  • Powder--ELF Studio Complexion. The lightweight formula evens out skin tone and absorbs excess oil, and sheer formula brightens, mattes and neutralizes the skin. (not pictured)

It's a dupe for NARS Orgasm polish & is my favorite polish of all time.
It's so much prettier than it appears!

Ready for the beach!

What are your favorite Summer Beauty Products?


  1. Too Faced's Chocolate Soleil has been my go to bronzer all summer! I can skip blush most days if I want to. A definite plus with the humidity around here.

  2. My new coconut oil is freaking awesome - I'm loving how soft it's making my skin feel

  3. Nice collection! And that nail polish is a perfect summer shade indeed<3


  4. I love the Aussie 3-minute miracle and anything that smells like coconut...apparently I can't get enough of that scent. :D

  5. Great list, I really would love to try the conditioner, cocoa butter body oil and the bronzer.

  6. i still have yet to find that beach waves spray at my local DS :( can you recommend any other dupes for it?

  7. Amazing recommendations! Thanks, Elle!

  8. Love your recommendations and color choices. I'm more peach than pink for sure.

  9. love the not your mother's line. very nice other products as well!

  10. I'm on a hunt for that Aussie 3 minute miracle! The last time I went to Target they didn't have it. I need some good self tanners too, mine makes me dirty looking.

  11. Blotting papers were wonderful when I used to have oily t-zone skin. I never left home without them. I love the Revlon lipstick. I use those shades, too.

  12. I'm a big fan of Peter Thomas Roth's mineral sunscreen- seriously amazing. Powder form! Cuts shine AND has serious SPF power.

    Great review- I live for salt spray, so going to have to pick up some of Not Your Mother's! ;)


  13. I love Jergens Natural Glow! It was a hit from the very beginning with me. Can't wait to see your review on Too Faced. I've never tried them. Great products Elle! That Coconut body wash looks divine.

  14. Love the Aussie 3 minute miracle too! I've started using a little jojoba oil once or twice a week as well and it helps.

    Check out my Shabby Apple Giveaway!

  15. Ooh you did choose a lot of favorites, I'll have to try some of these. I used to use the Jergens Natural Glow all the time until they got rid of the "fair" shade. I'll have to give it another try though and amp up my color a little :)

  16. Great list! One of my faves is Ponds makeup remover face wipes, which are also great in the morning or when it gets so hot that you just need something cool on your face.

  17. Great selection of products!!

    kisses and Thank you

  18. So Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs really works? I've contemplated buying it but just thought there was no way it could really work. I'll have to pick some up the next time I am in CVS.

  19. I am a big fan of The Body Shop's coconut shower cream as well. I love the smell and use the matching spray lotion with it.

    I am interested in the airbrush tan, but I am so awful at applying this stuff without making it splotchy. Is it really easy to apply?


  20. They sound like awesome products. I keep wanting to try the Aussie conditioner! I'll have to get it.

  21. Vaseline's cocoa butter oil is my FAVORITE–I bought a few bottles when I first discovered it since it was so hard to find!

  22. Thanks for the list:) Will try out some of the stuff, esp. the Revlon ones.

  23. you are special so you make this blog great.

  24. You look FABULOUS Elle and I need to try the Aussie conditioner!

  25. The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner is great!

  26. Vaseline Gel Oil is my favorite! Sometimes I'll even use it to shave my legs.

  27. I was getting all excited about your fabulous summer list and then I got to the end and saw that gorge photo of you and nearly flipped my lid! You look STUNNING! Oh and I happen to love all of your summer picks too :) xoxo

  28. OMG! We just got an Ulta here and I'm going to run out and pick up that Oh! Polish, have been wanting the orgasm polish but not wanting to pay that much! Thank you!

  29. Jergens Natural Glow made me break out awful!!

  30. I am definitely going to have to take some of your beauty advice because your hair IS BEAUTIFUL! love love love! The Aussie 3 minute miracle is one of my favs too!

  31. I need to try all these out!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
