Sunscreen is my must-have summer product! Then it would probably be my tinted moisturizer.
#1.1 Danielle (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 14:21
I have to say that painted toes, is a must, when wearing your flipflops, so I say toe nail polish. I love NYC I got it from Target. Also I agree with Sunscreen,for your face is a must.
#1.2 Shonda (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 17:58
Last month, I discovered Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Sunny Berry SPF 20! A great product that takes the place of my lipstick and chap stick. I love the light tint it adds to my lips, not to mention the moisture!
#2 Lalaine on 2011-06-05 06:58
Coppertone Oil Free sunscreen lotion. It's not greasy and won't clog pores. It's great!
#3 Emilie on 2011-06-05 07:01
My must-have beauty product for this summer is sunscreen. I never leave home without it!
#4 Daphne on 2011-06-05 07:04
Urban Decay potion primer. It makes sure my eye makeup stays in place, even when the weather gets hot and sticky!
#5 Kate on 2011-06-05 07:12
Since Sunscreen is so popular, rightful so, I am going to branch out and go for my # 2 which is Josie Maran Argan Oil. I get it at Sephora. It totally nourishes my summer skin, on my face, nails and feet. One drop for each foot, just rub the dropper over nails and then three drops for my face. FYI, I have combination skin and this does not make my face oily!
#6 Cindy Evans on 2011-06-05 07:15
my must have beauty product for summer is bronzer, i need it since i do not tan my face,ever!!!
#7 chris on 2011-06-05 07:18
My number one summer beauty product is coconut oil. I use it for summer facials (with varying ingredients, depending on my needs), dry hair, as an after-sun moisturizer and a mani/pedi skin softener.
#8 Lari on 2011-06-05 07:26
I just bought that pink nail polish & love it!! My blog post for Monday is all about my must-have beauty products for summer! I have to agree, though, that sunscreen is the most important! :-)

My Old #1 was Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer but my new #1 is MAC Fix+.
#30 Jessica on 2011-06-05 09:22
Sun screen, tan towels, and leave in conditioner that protects hair from UV rays. Gotta protect my hair and skin from the sun, but the tan towels give me some color that I miss from my old tanning days.
#31 Kate on 2011-06-05 09:49
Jojoba oil is my must-have item for the summer.

I need to keep my skin moisturized but I hate heavy lotions in the summer. I use jojoba oil on my skin and its keeps it nice and moisturized the entire day. Plus its natural and healthy!

#35 Melissa (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 10:33

#37 Nikki on 2011-06-05 10:53
My number one must have for summer is Self Tanner. As we know sun is enemy #1. But we all look better with a tan. My favorite value product for self tanning is Neutrogena Sunless Tanning Spray for $10.00!. It goes on evenly and gives your skin a natural glow.
#38 Jamie (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 11:06
Bronzer and dry shampoo!
#39 Jess on 2011-06-05 11:06

Spray on sunscreen! At the beach, pool, walks, volleyball, where ever! Since it sprays on, no excuses to skipping it.

Keep up te awesome work, I love your blog!
#41 Nora (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 11:09
Jergen's gradual tanning lotion. Holds a tan longer in case my trips to the beach are few and far between.

Bobbi Brown shimmer brick in bronze!! Because you can use it as a bronzer and a eyeshadow palate.
#65 Alexis on 2011-06-05 13:34

My must have is my lacome tinted moisturizer with spf
#72 Victoria on 2011-06-05 14:30
I love my Hadanomy Collagen Facial Mist. I keep it in the fridge and spray it on after I come in out of the sun. It smells lovely (maybe like lychee?) and feels sooooo good on overwarm skin.
#73 Erin (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 14:35
A beauty product must have for the summer is a Tinted Moisturizer, like Laura Mercier ($42). And of course, with a lip and cheek stain, Like Benefit's "PoiseTint" ($28) and waterproof mascara, Like Tart's "Lights, Camera, Splashes! " ($19)... and you are ready to take summer to the fullest, from the beach to the movies!!
#74 Erika Soto on 2011-06-05 14:40
As most (smart) commenters mentioned above: sunscreen!

#76 Phoebe on 2011-06-05 15:37

#77 Sara Cadena on 2011-06-05 15:37
My EOS sphere lip balm, bright blue polish and sunscreen naturally.
#78 Roxanne on 2011-06-05 15:45
I can't live without my pressed powder in the summer!
#79 Mel on 2011-06-05 15:59
In addition to my requisite sunscreen, I love to try out all of the vibrant mail polish colors that I normally wouldn't try in the cold months. Right now, I am loving Ocean Love Potion by OPI for Sephora!
#80 Jonell (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 16:08
Tinted moisturizer! I like Laura Mercier's best.
#81 good girl gone blog (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 16:21
I have switched to pressed powder for the summer. It's just to hot for a full face of makeup. Loving the fresh face look.
#82 Kia on 2011-06-05 16:27
My summer staple is definitely my Essie Cute as a Button polish! Nothing says summer like bright coral toesies!
#83 LeahHeibult on 2011-06-05 16:37

#85 Jessica A. on 2011-06-05 17:02
Tinted Moisturizer with sunscreen.
#86 Jeana on 2011-06-05 17:03
brown sugar body scrub by Fresh. Exfoliation is key for soft, summer skin.
#87 Joy on 2011-06-05 17:07
definitely a tinted moisturizer with built-in sunscreen!
#88 Claire on 2011-06-05 17:10

#89 Shu on 2011-06-05 17:48
I love the body shops body scrubs and a great lotion to make your skin feel great.
#90 Paige on 2011-06-05 17:48
Dr.JArts BB cream! Its spf, foundation, and moisturizer all in one!!
#91 Suzy (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 17:49

Nars bronzer (because I'm so pale!) & Dior's psychadelic orange nail polish, to put a little summer on my fingers. :-)
#93 Candace on 2011-06-05 18:02

I have two.. sunscreen (I'm a fair skinned redhead) and concealer. I don't really need anything else!
#98 valerie on 2011-06-05 18:53
Sunscreen of course!
#99 Emily Wei on 2011-06-05 19:37
Summer must have? PRESSED POWDER! I don't wear it at any other time (my skin isn't really oily, so usually my mineral foundation is fine on its own) but during the summer my glands work overdrive. I don't even wear foundation in the summer because it will melt right off my face, but pressed power gives me just enough coverage!
#100 Carolyn B on 2011-06-05 19:44
My must-have summer beauty product is sunscreen! I love oil of olay daily moisturizer with SPF 15, I use is religiously! The giveaway looks lovely!

#101 Kristen (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 19:54
i love laura mercer's tinted lip balm, and lots and lots of fun nail polish!
#102 julie on 2011-06-05 19:54
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. Its leg makeup but I use it all over as a self-tanner and it is the best product ever! It is water-resistant, odorless and goes on evenly!
#103 Mikasa on 2011-06-05 19:56
A good mascara! (I like CG Lash Fusion) That's about all the beauty products I wear in the summer with a nice tan :-)
#104 Laura A. on 2011-06-05 20:08
I have to say that my best summer must-have is definitely my Chapstick cherry flavored lip balm. Not only is Chapstick amazing, but the cherry favored one gives a little tint to my lips:) I like the fact that it isn't a stick, but rather a balm in a cute container!
#105 Alexa on 2011-06-05 20:20
Sunscreen! And waterproof mascara... :-)
#106 Danielle on 2011-06-05 20:28
Self-tanner. I don't intentionally go in the sun anymore after years of damage. After 25 years of tanner hopping, I have landed on the Jergen's foam. Love it and it is reasonably priced.
#107 Kristin S (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 20:33
My must-have is a really pretty hot pink gloss - it allows me to wear less makeup but still look put-together.
#108 Christina on 2011-06-05 20:40
Have to agree with sunscreen! I can't go outside without crisping. I am soooooo pale O_o
#109 Sandra on 2011-06-05 20:47
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!!
#110 Michelle on 2011-06-05 20:53
Summer is the best time of year to bust out all the fun-colored nail polishes - especially for my toes!!
#111 Yesenia on 2011-06-05 20:54
Definitely bronzer!
#112 Noreen on 2011-06-05 20:58
my must have: panama jack lotion! moisturizing and smells all sorts of beachy and refreshing.
#113 amanda (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 21:03
Ginger skin + summertime = Neutrogena SportFace sunscreen and Jergen's Natural Glow Foam :-)
#114 Kim on 2011-06-05 21:04
I always use Aveeno lotion in the summer to make sure my skin's moisturized during the summer.
#115 Pamela on 2011-06-05 21:21
My must-have summer beauty item for this year is bright nail polish! So excited to get the brights on my toes for summer!
#116 Nicole on 2011-06-05 21:24

SPF moisturizer and nail polish
#119 Mariam (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 21:50
My summer beauty must have is beautiful, clear skin. I'd have to say St.Ive's Apricot Scrub is the best thing for your face!
#120 Dina Lopez on 2011-06-05 22:13
My must have summer beauty product is Sunscreen with a high SPF. I burn so easily, and I'm really not going for a tomato look.
#121 Cortney (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 22:14
My summer beauty product is a coal lipstick
#122 Felicity B Brigham (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 22:22
would have to say bright colored nail polish. just makes me smile every time I see it!
(next up is spf light-weight foundation) and moisturizer!
#123 alyson (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 22:24
also tweeted. love this contest! :-)
thanks target and budget babe!
#124 alyson (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 22:27

#125 April on 2011-06-05 22:45
gotta have that bronzer!!!
#126 Jenny (Homepage) on 2011-06-05 22:56
My must have summer beauty product is definitely brightly colored nail polish!
#127 Alison T on 2011-06-05 23:02
My #1 must-have summer beauty product is hair protection spray with sunscreen. My dark hair tends to turn brassy and orange-ish about mid-summer from the sun and chlorine, and this has helped to keep the color intact for the last several summers. It's the perfect product that goes along with all of my other spf ones!
#128 Johanna Mellis on 2011-06-05 23:11
My must-have product is waterproof mascara- a necessary tool for the beach!
#129 Amy on 2011-06-05 23:19
Bronzer! I like to sweep it down center of each leg when I wear shorts and skirts, it makes my stubby legs look a wee bit longer! Sunscreen is my other must have (its a tie). I'd rather not look like leather when I am older!
#130 Lori on 2011-06-05 23:43
Tinted moisturizer! And speaking of Target, I really like the Sonia Kashuk in Linen.
#131 Elizabeth on 2011-06-05 23:58
Sunscreen, definitely! I burn without it!
#132 Stacy Z on 2011-06-06 00:05
Definitely I need my foundation primer to keep my foundation from melting in the heat & also the oil sheets to fix any shine!
#133 Stephanie on 2011-06-06 00:08
I definitely need sunblock
#134 raimy on 2011-06-06 00:20
I guess sunblock makes my all time must have list, so for summer I'm going to pick waterproof mascara! My current pick is LashBlast waterproof, sticks like whoa and looks inky like nothing else I've tried.
#135 Christina on 2011-06-06 00:28
my must have would be a tinted moisturizer with spf of 30.
#136 janet on 2011-06-06 00:58
Carmex and Johnson Baby Oil.
#137 christine on 2011-06-06 01:06

#144 sohoaccessories (Homepage) on 2011-06-06 05:46
I would have to say that my "must have summer product" would be various bronzers and tanners. Even though I am african american (and already brown, I mix them with lotions to add a little shimmer to my legs and arms. It adds a healthy glow.
#145 Natasha E. on 2011-06-06 06:00
bumble & bumble surf spray is my must have summer product!
Summer time is all about the gorgeous beach waves and this stuff really gives you that beachy vibe.
I never leave the house without spritzing some on!
#146 mary ahn on 2011-06-06 06:14
I love Jergens faux tanning mousse. It goes on evenly and doesn't have that yucky smell.
#147 Regina on 2011-06-06 06:41
Sunscreen!!! :-)
#148 Jenny on 2011-06-06 07:05
I use L'Oreal's Subline Bronze one day bronzer. It's very natural looking and takes me about two minutes to have a great tan with no chemical smell.
#149 Lucy on 2011-06-06 07:28
My must have is still my benefit Benetint. Adds a little bit of pink to my hopefully tanned cheeks and lips for the summer!
#150 Megan C. on 2011-06-06 07:40
A bright pink creamy cheek color to dab over a tan -- it sets it off perfectly!
#151 ajdematteo on 2011-06-06 08:09
Self tanner. The one I used to like is discontinued so I am on the search for a new one. :-(

I have to have a good conditioner in the summer as well as John Frieda Frizz Eaze to keep my hair from looking so parched.
#154 Crystal S. on 2011-06-06 08:38

#168 Susan G on 2011-06-06 10:39
My must have summer product is suncreen! I have very fair skin so it's a must.
#169 Kelly Anne on 2011-06-06 10:50
My must have summer product would have to be my trusty lip balm.
#170 Dee Dee on 2011-06-06 10:54
Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets are my summer staple - no more grease-face!
#171 Jennifer Lynch on 2011-06-06 10:57
Burts Bees lip balm with sunscreen.
#172 Sara Kat on 2011-06-06 11:10
My new favorite summer product is Korres Lip Butter. I love the Wild Rose, which is a sheer red tint and the Mango, a sheer coral tint. It is also a great "apples of the cheeks" blush.
#173 Debra (Homepage) on 2011-06-06 11:11
My Holy Grail for the summer is two products. They are pretty opposite but equally important! I am very pale, thanks to my great Irish heritage. So I need Sunscreen and gradual tanner!! lol
#174 KAITLIN B on 2011-06-06 11:14
My latest must have is Moroccan Oil. My hairstylist told me she calls it crack for hair and it is!!
#175 Lynn on 2011-06-06 11:17
Sunscreen is definitely #1!
#176 Valerie on 2011-06-06 11:17
Laura Mercier "hydratint" in apricot. It's like (SPF 15) chapstick, with a a touch of glamour. Hydratint goes is in a tube similar to chapstick, goes on like chapstick, but has lovely smooth color. It's amazing.
#177 Jacqueline W on 2011-06-06 11:25
Derma E Rehydrating Serum, Hyaluronic Acid -- you can purchase it at Vitamin Shoppe, Wegmans and other beauty supply stores. Its an amazing hydrating serum which really moisturizes with a nice scent and it has Hyaluronic Acid which is now all the latest rage in keeping your skin young.
#178 Iarhyme on 2011-06-06 11:28
My Goody Spin Pins have been my savior. Least fussy way to get hair up off my neck, wet or dry.

Just in case hair gadgets don't count, I love my carmex moisture plus stick. The potted kind just gets too mooshy in the summer.
#179 Victoria on 2011-06-06 11:42
My must have summer item (besides suncreen of course) has to be bronzer. A cream bronzer is even better this time of year.
#180 Jany on 2011-06-06 11:50
lip products with spf. We tend to forget those. Also, Moisturizer. Just because it's summer, doesn't mean we should deprive skin of moisture. Sweat is not a substitute for moisturizer!

#191 Rachel on 2011-06-06 13:19
my must-have summer product USED to be tinted moisturizer with SPF, but i've since developed a pretty severe allergic dermatitis to it. i would say a close runner-up for me are blotting papers!
#192 chelsea on 2011-06-06 13:28
My must-have summer product is tinted moisturizer. It works as a light, moisturizing foundation, and has SPF to boot. It's great for having on a little makeup that's not too heavy.
#193 Lynda on 2011-06-06 13:33
The must have summer product for me is colorful nail polish to paint my fingers and my toes since they are out in the open for people to see. The brighter the color the better!

Definitely my Olay SPF 30 face sunscreen! Simple, but hugely necessary.
#202 Aubrey on 2011-06-06 15:59
SPF 15+ face cream is a must all year long, but flip-flop season cries for painted toes And that's where Essie comes in! Thrilled Target carries it now.

I have to have tinted moisturizer! I also can't live without my pink blush.
#205 Katherine on 2011-06-06 16:19
I have to say, above anything my must have product is a tinted moisturizer with SPF. I would much rather say is the mellow yellow sally hansen nail polish im wearing right now but spf is such a must.
#206 Maca (Mrs Spanglish) (Homepage) on 2011-06-06 16:30

#213 Andrea on 2011-06-06 19:47

#243 alisan (Homepage) on 2011-06-07 18:20
I actually make a homemade body scrub of coffee grounds and grapeseed oil (any oil will do). I add some cinnamon to make it smell extra good. I make sure to use the coffee grounds to rub into my thighs and legs for a full minute. Not only is it incredibly moisturizing, but I swear it helps with cellulite. It doesn't fix it permanently, but it definitely helps!
#244 Shelley on 2011-06-07 18:29
My must-have summer beauty product is Bathina "Take a Picture it Lasts Longer" glimmering body balm by Benefit. It makes my legs so smooth and a little shimmery.

#254 Meghan on 2011-06-08 08:24
I swear by Tan Towels. They give you that fresh sun kissed look without making you orange or exposing you to harmful UV rays. Paired with a light shimmer on the cheeks and some texture spray for the hair (I like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray because it smells awesome) and you have that beach goddess look for day or night.
#255 Kim on 2011-06-08 08:52
Sunscreen- super important and I always make sure to apply it on my face and lips during the summer! Plus a great hat and sun glasses! The list can go on and on! I love your blog and all the great ideas you post about! :-)
