P209438_hero.jpgToo Faced Tanning Bed in a Tube Face

I have personally made it my goal to find the safest, easiest to use, turn-your-head tan in a bottle. I will look no further, Tanning Bed in a Tube gives a natural looking sun-kissed shimmer to help you rock a temporary beach babe bronze. It’s oil-free so you can apply without worry of a summer blemish and with a little powder, you can carry off this glow as a foundation during the day. The only downside is it contains NO SUNSCREEN (I know- I can’t believe it either). $21.50 at

200.JPGLubriderm Intense Skin Repair Body Lotion with Itch Relief
Let’s face it, swimming, self-tanning and all that waxing and shaving can really dry a gal out more than any winter radiator! New Lubriderm Intense Skin Repair Body lotion seals the flakes and heals the cracks with a 24 hour time-release formula that even helps with itch relief. No excuses for ashy skin! $7.99 at

P183702_hero.jpgStila Sun Shimmer Dry Oil
Ever need just a hint of tan or a soft shimmer? Uh, yeah, it’s summer isn’t it? Stila Sun Shimmer Dry Oil’s super sheer formula is perfect for summer heat when your other waxy creams can feel like a stifling pair of stockings. Formulated with macademia and kukui nut oils, Stila Dry Oil quenches skin’s thirst while leaving a glisten that warrants an “is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?” $26 at


Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

Just Skin is by far the best tinted moisturizer we’ve seen in a long while. It’s a tubed up and blendable, medium-coverage super cream that feels silky and fresh on skin. A minimal SPF 15 is packed in and it doesn’t really go deep in its 5 shades offered, but if you fit into Just Skin’s limited palette, it’s well worth the hefty price tag. Just Skin is just beautiful! $62 at

crave_blueberry02.jpg Whish Blueberry Mint Shave Crave Pump
Ladies, if we have to de-hair ourselves for summer we might as well make it fun. Whish Body is giving you some shower options with an assortment of shave crave pumps that serve as a creamy buffer to keep legs smooth and nick free. My favorite is Blueberry Mint, that claims to not only sooth tired muscles with mint but de-age with blueberry oil. I’m a fan. $24 at

eyeglazesite.jpgGirlactik Eye Glaze

Eye Glaze doesn’t feather or crease no matter how steamy things get outdoors. The waterproof colors come in 5 sultry or delicate shimmers and couldn’t be easier to use. We tested the color chic out on a hot NYC day and found Girlactik had super staying powers, even after a long day in the park. $17 at

31Ev4nxinIL._SL500_AA280_.jpgMiss Oops Pedicure in a Bottle
Miss Oops pretty much buffs out the crazy cracks that appear during flip flop season. This exfoliating foot cream repairs heels and toes in a lightweight formula that smells fresh and cools the skin with tingly peppermint, menthol and soothing lavender. $17 at
