Summer Beauty Routine - Summer Beauty Essential Products Under $100 //

Oh summer! A time filled with cookouts, pool parties, and beach trips. It is also the time to switch out some of your favorite beauty products with lighter and quicker options. Making changes to your beauty routine doesn’t have to break the bank though. I’ve recently shared with you, my tips on how to remove your makeup the right way, especially for summer. But I also want to share a few more beauty products to get me through these next couple of dry months. Here is a list of all of your summer beauty essential products for summer all under $100!

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof Makeup Remover & Cleanser

The Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water is the ultimate summer skincare solution. This multipurpose product cleans and refreshes your skin while also removing stubborn waterproof makeup. Micellar water works by gently lifting dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin without any harsh scrubbing. Your skin is left refreshed and clean after application. There is also no need to rinse the product off after application, making it perfect for after the beach or pool.

Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer

Jergens is known for their awesome gradual self-tanners but what makes this Natural Glow Moisturizer different is that you apply it right after the shower. Water activates the product while locking in moisture. With this moisturizer building a tan gradually, you are left with beautifully natural, glowing skin. This is a great way to achieve a summer glow without the negative effects of sun damage.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin One‑Sweep Wonder Brush No 705

Another one of my favorite summer beauty essential products is this one. IT Cosmetics has changed the game when it comes to makeup brushes. The Heavenly Skin Wonder Brush has a patent pending. Heavenly Skin hair infused with silk peptides, niacin, anti-aging collagen, and antioxidants. This brush actually improves your skin while applying makeup- SCORE! The tapered brush head and shortened handle make application of blush, bronzer, and highlighter effortless!

Banana Boat Suncomfort Sunscreen Lotion

A day at the beach is a great way to spend a summer day. What isn’t great is having to apply sunscreen that seems to instantly attract sand to your skin. Well, Banana Boat Suncomfort Sunscreen is the solution to this problem. It is designed to make your beach days much more comfortable. This product moisturizes while still protecting you from the sun and makes brushing sand off of your skin super easy. It is available in SPF 30 and 50. It is also water resistant for up to 80 minutes so you can enjoy getting in the water and still be protected. 

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV

The Double Repair Moisturizer is meant for everyday use and has an SPF of 30. It is oil free, fragrance free, and non-comedogenic. This product doesn’t just provide all day moisture, it also helps to restore your skin’s natural barrier to better retain moisture. The Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer contains many ingredients to make your skin happy. These ingredients include ceramide 3 which is naturally found in skin, La Roche-Posay protective thermal water with antioxidants properties, glycerin which naturally attracts water to the skin, and niacinamide – a form of vitamin B3 with soothing properties. This is the perfect everyday sunscreen to be worn alone or under makeup.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

Summer is a time to show your skin so you want to make sure your skin is looking its best. Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant not only resurfaces skin to be smooth but also helps to fight environmental triggers known to accelerate aging. Activated binchotan charcoal absorbs pollutants that irritate the skin. This powder activates with water to provide you with a deep clean and detoxify pores.

Milk Makeup Blur Stick

This Milk Makeup Blur Stick is a very popular makeup product for summer. It helps to blur imperfections and mattifies skin. This is great for a no makeup look or to be worn as a primer to give your makeup a smoother finish. The Blur Stick also helps your makeup to last longer, a bonus for sweaty summer days. This product is paraben, oil, and sulfate free making it great for your skin as well.

Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam

Dry shampoo is the answer to many people’s prayers when they don’t feel like washing their hair. And it is one of the summer beauty essential products that I swear by. The Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam takes it to the next level. This waterless foam works for curly, wavy, and straight hair to remove build up and oil. It is great for refreshing your hair between washes. This formula is very gentle and also helps to detangle your hair. It is quick drying and leaves your hair clean, conditioned, and ready to be styled.

With all of these awesome summer beauty essential products, which ones will you add to your routine?
