Summer is a great time to make yourself look and feel great! It’s a time to get outside, enjoy the sunshine, and move your body. The folks from BabbleBox.com provided me with some great new products to help me feel healthy and beautiful all summer long. Here are my tips for feeling my best during the summer months.
Summer Ready Legs
Before I put on shorts or a swimsuit, I need to get my legs summer ready. The first step for summer skin care is proper exfoliation. This helps prepare for a great shave as well as applying any self tanning lotions. I tried Tree Hut Shave Prep Body Scrub and I love it!
Tree Hut Shave Prep Body Scrub gently removes dead skin for a great efficient shave. The product pampers skin with essential ingredients like Oat Kernel Oil, which helps relieve skin irritation, and Avocado Oil to help keep skin moisturized. The product is said to lift hair to preps skin for a smooth, close shave, without ingrown hairs and pesky red bumps. I love the way my legs look and feel.
I love to be outdoors in the summer. Going for a long walk or jog on the beach is a favorite for me. The fresh air invigorates both my mind and body. I love bright colors to help lift my mood as well. I love this outfit from 2(X)IST. They provide great products with superior fit, fashion and performance functionality. I love that they are very reasonably priced as well.
The Square-Cut Tank is an everyday essential made to layer on or lounge in. It’s 100% breathable soft cotton and only $26. These ombres leggings have 100% moisture wicking fabric, a stay-put wide waistband, hidden zip pockets for only $52. Solid leggings are $48. There great for lounging around too. Don’t I look comfy.
As a busy mom, taking a bath is a real luxury for me. Many things leave my muscles feeling achey. After a tough workout or a day of gardening, nothing beats a bath with the products from Village Naturals. Village Naturals Therapy bath and body products are infused with a powerful blend of essential oils, extracts and cooling menthol to soothe sore muscles, relax the body and soften the skin.
These products can also help relieve stress and tension. Their line of bath soaks, body washes and lotions provide fast-acting relief so you can feel like yourself again. Unlike traditional Epsom the Village Naturals formulas include sea salt, menthol, Epsom Salt, essential oils and key extracts, which provide the additional benefits of softening the skin.
The only bad thing about summer is the damage that the sun can do to your skin. In addition to using a good sunscreen, I continue a daily anti-aging regimine. I was excited to try out Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme. Since it’s non-greasy, non-sticky, and non-shiny, it is a great anti-aging solution for summer months. Nothing worse than a greasy looking face. YUCK!
This anti-wrinkle and hydrating face serum features Rhamnose and Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Rhamnose is a great alternative to Retinol, especially for those with sensitive skin. In just a few days my skin looks more glowing. My pores are less visible too. I can’t wait to see my results as time goes by. The product is also paraben-free.

The one product I usually can’t go without is mascara. It makes my eyes pop even if I am a little sleepy. That said, not all mascara works well on me. I hate mascara that clumps or leaves me with racoon eyes after just a few hours. I was thrilled to find that IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara works well for me.
The product is formulated with anti-aging ingredients like peptides and proteins, strengthening biotin, lash-lifting polymers and plumping collagen. This mascara is also buildable, so I can go as light or heavy as I’d like for a day or night look. I simply apply more coats to add volume and length.
