John Frieda Frizz-Ease Creme Serum Overnight Repair Formula improves our tresses while we sleep, ensuring that our dry, damaged, or frizzy hair will transform into visibly smoother hair by the next morning. We love that it leaves our locks shiny and soft, but what’s even better is that it never leaves residue on our pillows (because who needs more laundry to do?) $8.99, drugstore.com

DuWop Revolotion Bronzing Body Moisturizer is what those of us who use self-tanner call a cult classic. From its silky and smooth finish, to its ability to give a streak-free finish (not to mention its improved non-transfer formula), getting that summer glow is beyond easy with this stuff. 

Bonus: Revolotion contains SPF 15 to go along with the kiss of bronzing pigment and subtle shimmer. $28, beauty.com

With the weather heating up, we feel it’s essential to have the best protection possible. There is nothing worse than catching a whiff of your own underarm umm…odor, and having to worry throughout the day whether or not others smell it, too (so embarrassing!). 


The following is a list of products we have tried and tested for you, and trust us, they really work.

 

 

mitchem for women clear gel antiperspirant.jpg

 

Mitchum for Women Clear Gel Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant is certainly the best of the best. We were most impressed with how effective it is. The alcohol-free formula won’t sting your underarms, the clear finish ensures you won’t leave any trace on your clothes and of course, you can be confident all day. $4.99, drugstore.com

 

 

 

kiehls antiperspirant.jpg

 

Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant comes in a lotion form, but never left us feeling sticky. This isn’t irritating, leaves our skin feeling smooth, and keeps us dry and smelling fresh all day long. Our biggest tip is to be sure to let it dry completely before getting dressed, and once it does, it stays put. $11.50, nordstrom.com

Degree Woman Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant is applied at night to give the best odor and wetness fighting protection. We love this, especially when we have early morning workouts planned— no need for our groggy selves to remember to do anything but get dressed. $6.99, drugstore.com

Secret Flawless Invisible Solid provides us with a feminine scent that that goes on light and softens our skin, thanks to Olay conditioners, but works to keep the wetness at bay. We love that this too goes on clear, and leaves us feeling confident enough to brave the hottest weather. $5.49, drugstore.com

Adidas Women Cotton Tech Aluminium Free Deodorant is amazing if you are desiring an aluminum-free anti-perspirant/deodorant that actually works. We found this product kept us dry and odor free all day, has a fresh, clean scent and appealed to our health-conscious side. $3.75, amazon.com
