You know very well what we’re talking about. Those coveted products you carry in your beach bag, have with you poolside, and are in close-reach on your vanity. While, yes, it’s about getting that golden-hour-glow, it’s also about how to prep your skin for the perfect (fake) tan and get that sea water and chlorine out of your hair to maintain color and shine. Plus, we namecheck our summer essentials beyond beauty from the pinnacle straw hat to the classic minimal sandal. Summer, we really love you.

Molly’s Summer Beauty Must-Haves:

“It’s the Phlur Ameline Hand Cream. It’s hot pink, the packaging screams summer, and it’s so chic. It’s hydrating, but it’s not too slick.”

“The Crown Affair-Scalp Care Cleansing Scrub exfoliates gently and dissolves fully into water. It removes the buildup and impurities while polishing the skin, making the scalp hydrated and leaves room for your roots to breathe.”

“The Oribe Flat Brush is great for all hair types, good for frizz, increases shine, and anti-static. I have one in my purse to detangle my hair after the beach because it’s soft, and the bristles stimulate the scalp. I love it so much.”

“I use the K18 Molecular Repair Hair Mask day and night. It’s phenomenal for dry hair, wet hair, tangled hair, damaged hair, all hair.”

Necessaire’s Mineral Sunscreen is summery, nostalgic, and is 100% mineral. It is great for brightening and hydrating while helping to prevent sun damage and premature aging.”

“The Refy Brow Wax Gel Hybrid features a double-ended brush applicator that sculpts, shapes, and sets hairs into place making the perfect brow. It has a lamination effect and gives you that lift.”

“This is the color for me for summer. It is bright, hydrating but matte, and has a velvety finish. The Hermes Rouge Orange is amazing, chic, beautiful, and refillable. You will be noticed with this lip.”

“I’m going to give a little shout out to our YSE Glow Collection’s Liquid Body Oil. It is beautiful and literally summer in a bottle. It’s exactly what I want to be wearing to get that sexy sheen on the skin. Think of a highlighter for your body, but it’s really moisturizing and not greasy.” 

“The Westman Atelier Bonne Brow Defining Brow Pencil will last you forever. It comes in 4 shades and gives you a feathery finish. It glides on so naturally, effortlessly, and mimics hairlike strokes. It looks so chic.”

“It is the perfect red nail. It’s the Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Color 634. It’s longlasting, high shine, and helps strengthen your nails over time. It is so chic and perfect.”

“The Bronzino Tower 28 Illuminating Bronzer adds instant warmth and a subtle shimmer for a healthy glow. Their creamy formulation comes in 5 shades, I use Suncoast Light Bronze, and it is so pretty. If you don’t have a tan, you will after this.”

“I use the Lux Unfiltered Exfoliating Body Polish in the shower. It is so gentle yet so hydrating since it’s made of crushed sugar, passionfruit oil, shea butter, and Vitamin E. Think of it as like priming your skin.”

“New product alert! Saie Glowy Superskin Weightless Hydro Bounce Serum Foundation comes in 36 shades. It’s lightweight, luminous, is medium to buildable coverage, and it’s breathable. It goes on light, you can use your hands, and it doesn’t look heavy.”

Emese’s Summer Beauty Must-Haves:

“I have been using Cle de Peau’s UV Protective Cream religiously as my day cream. It has an SPF of 50 and it is the most beautiful, easy, daytime moisturizer. It doesn’t interfere with the integrity of your makeup and makes a great base.”

“You know I love dewy skin. It is called Glowish by Huda Beauty and it comes in 15 shades. It is a clean, fragrance free, buildable skin tint that leaves skin instantly brighter with a dewy finish.”

“The K18 Peptide Detox Shampoo is amazing. It’s a color safe, non-stripping, clarifying shampoo that gently and effectively removes buildup for detoxified and refreshed hair. It’s a game changer.”

Chanel Sublimage Le Correcteur Yeux is a concealer, but it is also like an eye brightener. It is only available at their Chanel boutiques or at and is amazing. It comes in 10 shades and is creamy, lightweight, and melts into the skin. It never cakes or looks dry.”

“The Macrene High Performance Concealer is a lightweight concealer with buildable coverage. It is beautiful, creamy, and you can spot treat it. I love this product.”

“The Hermes Plein Air Natural Enhancing Complexion Balm elevates the skin with a weightless veil of sheer color and a radiant natural finish. It is a little more matte, but still gives you that natural glow.”

“The Hermes Healthy Glow Mineral Powder Bronzer leaves a semi-matte veil on your skin. It comes in 5 shades and there are three different tones of brown, so it’s not just one flat color. It is so beautiful on the skin and gives you the most beautiful glow that helps blur imperfections and unifies complexion.”

“I finally got the Rare Beauty Radiant Finish Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Hope since it has always been sold out. It is the prettiest shade and has the most radiant finish. It is weightless, long lasting, and is available in matte and dewy finishes.”

“The Sireni Beauty Overnight Overhaul Rejuvenating Beauty Mask had me noticing such a difference in my skin after one use. It soothes and evens out your skin making you wake up looking plump and dewy. It literally makes you look like you have a filter on your face.” 

“I love the Tula Skincare Blurring and Moisturizing Primer. I put it on under my makeup, and it goes on white but then adapts to your skin color. I really do love this primer because it truly makes your makeup last all day.”

“The U Beauty Return Eye Concentrate is a complete contouring treatment that targets fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness. It’s designed to visibly lift, smooth, plump, and brighten your eye area. It really does make your under eye area look hydrated and much less dark.”
