Beauty Products to Take Along This Summer
With summer now here in the DMV, your tote bag is probably full of all your makeup products that you need daily from dry shampoos and concealers to leave-in wave sprays and glowy bronzers. If you want to pack only some of the necessities, but also want them to be on the affordable side, then check out some of the must-haves below.
Got a brush? If you use a wet detangler brush like I do, then brushing your hair out of the shower has never been easier and pain free. But if you are looking for a brush for when your hair is dry, then look into the Mini G Small Paddle brush by Hotheads, which retails for $12.
This brush uses three different types of bristles to make sure that no hair is left untouched. This brush even distributes all the oils in your hair whether natural oils or from product that you leave in your hair — this brush will make sure it goes from top to bottom so that your hair can be healthy and radiant looking. Natural oils are actually good for your head when you comb them through versus just leaving them on the top of your hair. Not to mention that when you apply dry shampoo on your head, this brush makes sure that it glides from the top of your head to the bottom in a cinch.
Want to experience some Hawaiian deep sea water? Ola Passion Fruit Body Mist is a spray that has Hawaiian deep sea water (one of the cleanest and most nutritious waters around) in it, which contains high levels of magnesium, calcium and trace minerals that all work to keep your skin feeling healthy and clean. It retails for $22.
This spray also uses a synergetic healing blend of Hawaiian botanicals, which ups its alkaline pH making it especially great for skin and hair. You know how you use a regular bar of soap and your skin gets really tight? That is because soap is very high on the alkaline scale naturally, so it strips your face of the regular moistures it needs. This spray is a nice blend of high alkaline to keep your skin clean and fresh. But with the synergetic blend it also highly moisturizes, making it the perfect pick-me-up spray to keep your skin feeling clean, but still treating it with with moisturizing ingredients.
Have raccoon looking eyes because of leftover mascara from the night before? You can’t really do anything about it since you decided to sleep at your boyfriends’ place and have none of your products there? Do not ever end up in this situation with Comodynes Urban Cosmetics’ Make-Up Remover Travel Edition towellettes.
You get a punch for your buck because at only $5.99 you get 20 towlettes in a resealable bag that can easily fit into your purse. These towlettes come in different kinds too such as for sensitive skin, which has oats in it, or for dry skin, which could use some extra hydration. These towlettes are great during the day too for when you just want a refreshing pick me up for your sunburned face.
