It is easy to get caught up in the abyss of beauty products, especially in the summer. We’re here to help you narrow it down to the bare necessities for your beauty bag. Nurture your hair and skin this summer with only the best and hottest products of this summer season.


Olaplex proves that it is the leading brand in keeping split-ends out of our hair with its No.7 bonding oil. This product is small yet mighty. The 1oz bottle is made to last and is a true jack of all trades. It increases shine, smoothness, promotes growth, and provides UV/heat protection at up to 450°F/232°C.

This frizz spray is Living Proof that smooth hair in the summer is attainable. We have all been there.  After all, it’s summer. Humidity is at an all-time high, and all you can do is pray that your locks will stay smooth. Pray no more with Living Proof’s No Frizz Humidity shield! This miracle spray also smells to-die-for. Talk about a hair double whammy.


This luxurious body cream is an absolute must-have for summer. It is buttery soft, skin tightening (thanks to the caffeine-rich guarana), and addictively delicious smelling.
