Top 5 Summer Must Have Beauty Products

Top 5 Summer Must Have Beauty Products

Summer is here!  And that usually means switching up some of your skin care and makeup products.  Here are my picks for Top 5 Must Have Summer Beauty Products

1. Sunscreen is an absolute must.  

  We all know how important Sunscreen is year round, but especially in the summer when we tend to be exposed to the sun more often and for longer periods of time.  I love the Avon Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion!  It’s formulated for face and doesn’t leave my skin greasy or shiny like some sunscreen lotions can.     It has an ultra lightweight, fast absorbing formula that doesn’t have the typical “sunscreen white” residue. It’s hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, allergy tested and suitable for dry, normal or oily skin.     That light, non-greasy, fast absorbing formula also makes it the most pleasant sunscreen for body that I’ve ever used. 

Bonus benefit, because I use it for face and body, that’s fewer products to carry on the go.  I keep one in my tote bag for those unexpected outings or days when the morning gets a little hectic and I get out of the house without applying sunscreen 

2. After sun care is just as important 

  Even when you are super careful about being sun safe, sunburns do sometimes happen.  When they do my family reaches for the Jeju 99% Aloe Soothing Gel. It cools the heat, soothes the itch and quickly returns our skin to it’s normal shade.   And summer doesn’t just mean sunburns.  Whether it’s the dry air indoors, or the elements outdoor drying out your skin, a little soothing can be just what you need.   The Jeju Aloe gel is non-sticky and absorbs nicely. It also has 9 other soothing herb extracts and can be used on face or body.    

3. No Bugs on Me!

  The sun is not the only thing you want to avoid while enjoying nature during the summer…you also have to worry about bugs.   While I often hear about the many people who have sworn by our original Skin So Soft bath oil to repel bugs for as long as they can remember (it has been around 60 years) My family depends on Skin So Soft Bug Guard to keep away pests.   It’s proven, deet-free protection from a wide variety of biting insects including mosquitos, deer ticks, black flies, gnats and no-seeums.    We use the Expedition during the day because it also has SPF28 and you can never have too much sun protection.  We like the aerosol spray because you can spray it at any angle and get all those hard to reach places.     At night, or when we travel the Picaridin wipes are easy to pack and easy to use.  The wipes are individually wrapped so I always have one in my tote bag for those unexpected bug encounters. 

4. Muggy Days Call for Magix

  Summer temps combined with high humidity, like we have here during monsoon season means one thing.  A permanent layer of sweat that makes your face shine in all the wrong ways.    Those are the days when I reach for Magix Prime.  The original Magix product it’s still my favorite. It stops shine and smooths my skin, minimizing the look of pores and lines so my makeup goes on smoother and looks great all day.   It can be worn alone too just to softly blur any imperfections and provide SPF 20 protection.  Magix Prime is Vegan, free from sulfates, parabens and talc, and it’s non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested. 

5. Water-resistant for the Win

  Water-resistant and Water-proof makeup is a must have when the heat cranks up the sweat factor, and when you want to enjoy a cooling dip in the pool, or the nearest body of water.   We have a great selection of water-resistant makeup but I did want to keep this list at 5 summer must haves so I’m just going to share my favorite.  Glimmershadow liquid eyeshadow.   I picked this one because we have the perfect shade for any look you want to create.  From bold shades with a bit of glitter, to neutral matte sateen shades for a natural look you can mix and match the 15 shades to create everything from a no-makeup makeup look to a classic smoky eye to a daring full glam look.     It’s also so easy to use.  You can perfectly apply a single shade in under a minute, mix two shades for a customer shade or grab an applicator more a more precise, multi-shade look.     It doesn’t crease, smudge or transfer and it give stay-all-day wear.  It’s free from sulfates, parabens and talc.   

With all the water-resistent and water-proof make up we use during the summer months, I will give an honorable mention to our waterproof eye and lip makeup remover, and 2 of our new cleansers that just melt all the makeup (and sunscreen) right off.  The 2 in 1 Exfoliating Balm and the Soothing Whipped Oil Cleanser.

My Top 3 Product Introductions for 2020

 My Top 3 Product Introductions for 2020

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

Over 50 new products appeared for the first time in the Avon brochure in 2020.  That’s not including all the limited edition fashion and jewelry that graced our pages this year. From additions to our skincare, makeup and fragrance to whole new product lines like oral care, an expanded hair care line and products to care for the home we’ve been working hard to bring you the best right to your door.

I personally have quite a few new favorite products, including one of the 3 I’m sharing today. I took a look at what has been the most popular among my customers and picked out the top 3 products introduced in 2020

#1 Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel

This one actually surprised me when it was first introduced. It almost immediately shot to the top of the list of my top selling products and I was not alone.  Avon sold out of the initial supply in the first few weeks and we had a to wait a couple of weeks to get more in stock. 
A natural skin soother, Aloe is a great thing to have in your skin care tool box. It’s one of the few moisturizers that’s good for face or body it’s suited to all skin types, including sensitive skin. Formulated with 99% aloe vera extract and 9 other soothing herbs (chamomile, spearmint, lemon balm, rosemary, lavender, bergamot, basil, sage and oregano) this gel instantly hydrates and soothes skin while restoring its moisture level. 
Feedback from my customers and the reviews online highlight some of the many uses for this non-sticky, fast absorbing gel. Of course Aloe is great to soothe a sunburn, it also soothes other types of irritation, including irritation from increased hand washing and mask wearing.  Some folks are even using it as a shave gel, or to soothe legs after shaving. 

#2 belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb and Moisturizing Bomb

One of the bonuses to being part of the LG H&H family is that we can now offer many of their top selling products, including the #1 selling product at Sephora stores. This is my personal favorite of all the new products we added this year.  For years I have dealt with the challenge of trying to keep my combination skin from turning into an oil slick by midday. belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb has been the answer to my prayers. 

And I’m not the only one who has discovered why this was such a popular product.  The Aqua Bomb and the Moisturizing Bomb have become favorites of many of my customers and both have near 5 star ratings on Avon’s online store. belif combines time-trusted apothecary herbal traditions with modern Korean skin science and delivers powerful hydration. Aqua Bomb is an ultra-lightweight gel cream that helps balance skins oil production while it moisturizes.  Moisturizing Bomb has a cushiony whipped texture that envelops skin in intense, long lasting moisture

#3 Root Touch Up

I will admit that the craziness that has been 2020 could have contributed to the popularity of this last product.  With people having to skip their regular hair appointments there have been a lot of roots making an appearance this year.  Root Touch Up was the answer to getting those roots back out of sight. 

Our Root Touch-Up powder formula covers your hairline, graying roots and even bare areas for a fuller hair look—instantly. With scalp and hair nourishing ingredients, this easy to use, long wearing powder has prevented many bad hair days in 2020.

Honorable Mention
It’s not often that I have a fragrance sell as well as this one did so I figured it deserved a mention. It’s even become a signature scent for a couple of customers who wear it enough they’ve already had to reorder. It is a beautiful light, fresh, clean scent, with pink currant, peony and sheer musk.
