It’s June already (can you believe it?!) which means it’s officially Summer (despite the temperatures we’ve already been feeling for months)! So before it becomes unbearably hot and we start experiencing our daily thunderstorms, take advantage of living where others vacation and have fun in the sun! Or, you could use the following items and just pretend to, while still sipping a Pina Colada of course! Here are some of my favorite products for the month which are included in my article for South Florida Magazine Article, including some gift ideas for Dad!
St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse: If you don’t have time to actually soak up the sun or you’d like base color before going public in your bathing suit, fake the color with self-tanner! With so many on the market you want to make sure you get a quality product so you’re not just covering up your pale thighs with orange streaks. I love this whole line, but especially this mousse, and if you need color on the double, try the new Express Bronzing Mousse. ($18-44; www.sttropeztan.com and Ulta)
Comptoir Sud Pacifique Perfumes: I love to wear a fresh, island scent during the summer months and this brand’s scent collection has been my favorite for years, specifically the Vanille Coco and the Vanille Abricot. They’re available in both a spray and a rollerball, perfect for throwing in your beach bag. ($32, $20; Sephora and Nordstrom)
Aloha from OPI Nail Polish: If you’re like me and wear certain colors of polish depending on the season, this is the perfect summer red. It’s described as a creamy coral red and will get you in the island spirit even if you’re just saying aloha from the South Florida beaches. ($5-9, Amazon and drugstores)
Bleu de Chanel: With Father’s Day this month, don’t forget the items for the men in your life! This is by far my absolute favorite men’s cologne and I love that it’s also available in a refillable travel spray ($75) as well as an after shave lotion ($55), both of which would make the perfect gift! ($70-122; Sephora and department stores)
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25: It’s important to protect your guys skin from the sun just as much as it is yours and while he’s out in the sun make sure he uses this Jack Black lip balm to protect his pucker! It’s available in five scents, including Original, and will relieve dry and irritated lips, as well as block the rays. ($7.50; Ulta and department stores)
Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Super-Slick Shave Cream: Unlike me, my husband is not a huge fan of products but this shaving cream is his constant go-to. He loves how smooth of a shave he gets with it and it doesn’t irritate his super sensitive skin. Plus he’s in good company as Esquire named it Best Shave Cream! ($20; www.billyjealousy.com, Ulta)
Cheers to a great month!
