Top Summer Beauty Products: Our Reader Picks

Thanks to everyone who wrote in last week with their summer beauty product recommendations.  You all gave some great product tips and I can’t wait to check some of them out! 

Sophie from The Clean Beauty Blog shared her love for Evodia Hydrating Mist Toner…”So refreshing on hot summer days, and sets make-up in place!”

Sara uses virgin coconut oil for everything from skin and moisturizing to sunburn relief.  What an awesome bit of info.  She is so dedicated to this ingredient that she started her own line based on the stuff.  Go to Just Coco Oil to learn more.

Remikate recommends the Body Buddy applicator band for applying moisturizer, sunscreen, and self tanner to hard to reach back.  This ingenous device means you don’t have to find a friend to help you slather on your lotion or sun protection.  Love it!  And they also make Body Buddy moisturizing booties.  Apply your favorite foot cream, don your booties and take them off once you’ve dressed, done your hair and makeup, and are ready to leave.  “I still have to get a pedicure to clip nails, but my heels do not have to be filed.”  Who doesn’t need that in flip-flop season?

Ok, so we’ve heard from our lovely FGS readers on their top beauty picks for summer.  Here is a celebrity favorite to add to your list.

Fashion stylist to the stars, Rachel Zoe, is loving summery scented Love Coconut Fragrance by Honore de Pres.  Coconut is one of my favorite scents year ‘round, and this one is mixed with vanilla.  Mmmmm, sounds so warm and delicious.  Though I did not find an ingredient listing for Love Coconut, the fragrance is Ecocert certified and the company website touts 100% botanical ingredients.  Take a look.  Jessica Alba is also said to be a fan.  I can not wait  to try it out for myself.

And, straight from FGS, Nature of Beauty’s Terri Bly’s favorite beauty bet year ’round?  The Clarisonic.  Uh-huh.  Read on
