Hey loves! Happy Wednesday!!
First day of summer was last week and it’s been nice hot and sunny out here in Windsor Ontario!! From what I hear it was supposed to rain about a week ago, but no rain so far… (hope I don’t jinx it!) Anyways. It is officialy time to pull out the short shorts, the skimpy outfits and the summer products to keep the body moisturized protected and glowing of course!!
Here are my body/skincare must haves for this summer:
One of the most important products I do not leave the house without… I was not aware at first that even we black folks needed sunscreen, but we do just as much to keep our skin protected as much a s possible… Skin Cancer does not discriminate honey! I like it so far, it has a really lightweight, not so heavy creamy consistency and it smells really good!! I purchased at Walmart for $8.97 CAD.
I started using the Soft Dri brand earlier this year when I purchased the Aluminum Free deodorant, which I liked, but it doesn’t last all day compared to this on. As stated on the package, it is a clear gel and does last 24hrs! It retails for $2.18 CAD at Walmart.
I’ve decided to ditch my regular face cream for the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Gel-Cream and I love it so far. Since I just recently started using it I can’t really give you guys my informed opinion as of yet, but I will give it a full month and let you know if it works for me or not. It cost $8.97 CAD at Walmart
Of course, I love a nice glow especially during the summer, so I had to get this when I went to LaSenza a couple weeks ago. It’s not the Tom Ford’s Body Shimmer Oil (which is on my wishlist), but it does the trick and smells really good!! Retails for $9 CAD
I may be late on this bandwagon, but I finally decided to try this setting spray to help my make up last especially during the upcoming hot days… Retails for $12.97 CAD at Walmart.
Another bandwagon that I am late on. I will definitely use it as both a primer and an aftershave for my legs. I paid $5.77 USD at Walmart in the States.
I was sent this face sunscreen as a PR sample for review purposes. I have been trying it for a week now and I love how lightweight it is. No break outs so far. It is available at most retail stores such as Shoppers Drugmart etc… for $8.49 CAD.
These were also sent to me as PR samples. Nair Hair Remover is to be used in the shower to remove the unwanted hair. I saw it at Walmart the other day and it is $15.97 CAD (I think). I haven’t seen the Batiste Dry shampoo anywhere in Canada yet, but it is available online, on amazon and in certains store in the States such as Walgreens, Ulta etc… and retails for $7.99 USD. And the last product is the Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste (available at Walmart for $2.97 CAD). Lord knows we need to keep our teeths squeeky clean for the summer 🙂
That’s it for my Summer Must Haves. Let me know what are your Summer must haves and maybe recommend some of your favorites in the comment section.
