Skintimate Ultra Sensitive Shave Gel
Razor bumps are one of the most miserable parts of shaving. The Skintimate Ultra Sensitive Shave Gel ($4) is moisturizing, fragrance-free, and won't irritate even the most sensitive skin. Less irritation means fewer bumps, and smoother, more touchable legs.

Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan
Cover your blemishes while you tan with the Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan ($15). This foundation provides natural-looking coverage and bronzes your face even after your rinse it off.
Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer
To give your body a tanning without sun damage, try the Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer ($10). Simply apply the lotion after you're done showering while your skin is still wet. Then dry yourself off with a towel as usual, and admire your bronzed, moisturized skin. There's no need to rinse off!
Rimmel Shake it Fresh Mascara
Dried out mascara results in clumpy, artificial-looking lashes. The Rimmel Shake it Fresh Mascara ($6) has solved this issue with its unique shaker bottle. By shaking the tube vertically a few times, the mascara's formula is renewed to its original consistency for long, thick, separated lashes every time.

Your lips need to be protected, too! Apply the Burt's Bees All Weather SPF 15 Lip Balm ($4, available in July) to your pout before heading outside to keep your lips moisturized and shielded from the sun.
Kristin Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray
While most beach wave sprays are meant to be applied to wet hair, the Kristin Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray ($14) enhances your texture as you spray it on your dry locks. You'll never have to worry about your hair feeling crunchy while you flaunt your mermaid waves.
