The Season's Must-Have Beauty Products

The temperatures are heating up so it’s high time to make sure you look your best. Here are some of our picks for the season’s must-have beauty products:

The Body Shop has just introduced some fun new bright lip glosses in deliciously juicy flavors that will keep your lips hydrated throughout the summer heat. Pucker up with 11 super glossy, mouth-watering shades, including plum, peach (our favorite), strawberry, mango, lychee, coconut, mint or watermelon. Since the glosses are enriched with vitamins E and B5 and Community Fair Trade organic virgin coconut oil, you no longer have something to pout about. For more information, visit

Wash away all of that time spent at the beach with Restorsea’s new Reviving Cleanser. The rich formula easily lifts away impurities, including all traces of makeup, without stripping skin of essential oils to reveal a brighter, more even-looking complexion. What makes this line so unique is that it utilizes a natural enzyme released by Norwegian baby salmon during the hatching process to offer exfoliating properties as glycolic acid, without the harsh side effects, hydrating and strengthening the skin. It also contains Vitamin C to brighten the skin and reduce age spots as well as brown algae to moisturize and increase elasticity. We love how it left our skin – soft, clean, supple and brighter.

It’s time to talk tresses and we all know how the onset of warmer weather causes hair to frizz. For the quickest way to prevent this, check out Color Wow’s One Minute Transformation. This so-called “miracle styling cream” is truly just that. We loved this cream that allows us to easily manage our dried hair by applying to any frizzy sections that instantly transformed our dry hair to smooth healthy locks. If you really want to give your hair a lift, just lightly apply to sections of hair and using a round brush, hit with a blow-dryer for several seconds. Color Wow also makes a protective shellac that keeps your just-colored hair looking that way for weeks. While hair color always seems to fade within just a couple of weeks, the Pop & Lock actually seals the cuticle to seal in color and lock out dryness. If you ever wanted a clean, shiny sheen, this product is for you. For more information, visit

Speaking of hair, especially curly hair, we all know waves require special attention during the hot and humid summer months. Meet your new best friend - Ouidad’s new color care line. The line uses the ultimate technology to preserve and enhance vibrancy for not only curly hair, but for all textures and styles. Now, all hair types can find comfort in maintaining color through Ouidad’s newColor Sense Collection, which preserves and protects againstfading, so color is never flat or dull.
