Summer Essentials

Hello there! I thought I'd change it up a bit again and do some beauty reviews. Here's my best shot -

1. Rimmel London's The Max mascara 
I feel like I've used this forever!! It is waterproof so it sticks through the pool and beach. It does not add a ton of length but is very voluminousness- which is fine with me because I already have long and full lashes.  
2. Sonia Kashuk Radiant tinted moisturizer in tan  
I hate wearing foundation in the summer. I usually opt to go bare faced. but when I do put on more makeup it's this tinted moisturizer. It's very lightweight, but it stays on throughout the day. 
3. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer body mist sunblock
I can not emphasize enough how important sunscreen is. It doesn't matter how tan you are naturally USE SUNSCREEN.  I like this one because it is light and the spray is very even and easy to work with.  
4. Olay complete moisturizer 
This one isn't strictly directed towards summer, but it does have SPF 15, so if you run out for a quick errand your skin is moisturized and protected. The formula is also geared towards sensitive skin and my skin completely agrees with it. 
5. Burt's Bees chapstick variety tin 
Despite not having sun protection in their formula, I still use this chapstick. The tin comes with all of my favorites- Original beeswax, mango butter, acai berry, and pomegranate oil. 
6. Neutrogena Moisture shine lip soother in Gleam(40) and Glaze (60) 
I don't really like lip products, but this one has stayed around through the years. I don't use them often, but when I do they have amazing color and are never, ever sticky. I wonder why I don't use them that often, but I always return to them in the summer because they have SPF 20.
7. Revlon Cream Blush in Berry Flirtatious(18) 
Last but not least is this cream blush. I have dry skin so the cream doesn't slip off my skin from the heat, and since it is a darker color then I use regularly it goes well with a tan.
