The first is mascara - I never know when we'll steal away for a dip in the pool or a quick trip to the beach before dinner so I like to switch over to waterproof mascara during the summer. I've been a fan of Dior mascara for a long time and the waterproof version is worth every penny, I also love Cover Girl's Lash Blast in very black!
I use Purity as my face wash and it really is the best ever, but I have trouble getting off all of waterproof mascara with it, so I use Estee Lauder's Gentle Eye Make Up remover. I've also found that Loreal's Eye Make Up remover is a great drug store substitute. You don't want to over scrub your eyes and pull on that sensitive skin, the fewer wrinkles the better.
One of the biggest task of the summer though is protecting my face from the sun. I have used Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer for quite sometime and I can wear it under light make up when I'm working outside. I recently got some Coola Face Sunscreen in a Birchbox - and I love that stuff too! I'd highly recoomend it, if only to see how good it smells!
The last thing for today is leave in conditioner - it's a must, in your pool bag and beach bag. If you put some leave-in in your hair and sit in the sun for just a bit longer - man oh man do I love the feel of my hair after I rinse it and blow it out again. I've got the Bumble & Bumble in my beach bag and the Garnier Fructis in my pool and gym bag - I love them both!
I hope that everyone is having a great summer - we've been in hyper-drive here but I'm hoping the next month will be much more slow paced.
