Summer is finally here and I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly celebrating! The kids are out of school, maybe you’re lucky enough to be on vacation, chilling at a cottage, or maybe you’re like me and still working the 9-5. Either way, you still need your summer beauty essentials and here are my top 5!

The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Sorbet

The lightest, most refreshing body lotion, I’m in love with the new limited edition Body Shop Virgin Mojito collection. My fave (though all the products are pretty fantastic), is the body sorbet. After being in the sun all day, making sure your skin stays moisturized is essential.

Available at The Body Shop for $15 CAD.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Pads (60 pads)

These luxurious eco-friendly bamboo pads are saturated with antioxidant-rich organic fruit acids to brighten, while extracts of algae, Vitamin B3 and hyaluronic acid reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. They’re so refreshing after either spending the day in an air conditioned office, or in the sun on the dock.

Available in store at Murale and online at Murale.ca for $54 CAD.

Mac Wash and Wear

This Mac Wash & Dry Collection is a HUGE success among beauty bloggers this summer. As probably one of the most coveted recent makeup collections, the elegant, sophisticated packaging isn’t the only reason beauty lovers want to get their hands on something from the collection. The products are magnificent! If you want to treat yourself to one item, I recommend the lipstick in ‘Morange’. It’s a bright coral orange that looks great on any skin tone.

Available at a MAC counter near you for $21 CAD.

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator

The perfect skin highlighter has arrived, and the best part? It’s only $16.99 CAD, available at your local drugstore! Available in 3 different shades to match your skintone, the formula is smooth, shimmery and fantastic. These can be used under, over, or even mixed into a foundation to provide a subtle all-over glow.

Thera Wise SHO (Skin Healing Ointment)

summer beauty essentials Thera Wise is a Canadian brand that makes all natural ointments. SHO is a must have for every medicine cabinet whether on vacation or at home. This multi-purpose ointment works similarly to Polysporin, but its all natural ingredients makes it much more appealing to use on cuts/wounds, rashes, bruises, skin irritation, burns, after sun redness and mild to moderate eczema/atopic dermatitis.

Available at Thera Wise online or at one of these stores for $19.99.

So there you have it, my top beauty finds for this summer. I promise, they won’t disappoint!

Until next time,

nail that accent
