Beauty Must-Haves for Summer

Karen turned me on to L'Occitane and I'm hooked. Their Certified Organic Pure Shea Butter is the answer to dry, parched summer skin. Rough patches disappear after just a few applications. Use it on elbows, knees, feet, and great on dry hair to condition and keep the frizzies away. Made from 100% natural origin Shea Butter extracted from wild kernels of Shea tree fruits. $42

The Infiniti Pro by Conair® is so light, we actually thought it was left out of the box. When your hair takes as long as mine does to dry, a lightweight blow dryer is a summer necessity. The AC motor cuts drying time by 50%. Features ionic technology for smooth, shiny results with up to 75% less frizz. Ceramic technology provides infrared heat to protect hair from damage. Compact size great for traveling. Diffuser included. SRP: $49.99. Available at mass retailers. 

For celebrity-style tresses or "beachy"-looking hair without the frizz try Bed Head's Rock N Roller™ Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styling Iron. Creates tousled waves and natural-looking curls in minutes. So fun and a definite summer must-have for hair, we love it! $29.99 at

Keranique Marula Oil Hair Treatment Mist is formulated with omega 6 and 9 oils to smooth flyaways, reduce frizz, increase shine and hydrate dry hair. Although the line was created for women with thinning hair, the lightweight mist is a summer must-have for anyone who spends time in the sun or water and for those with dry hair. Leaves hair smooth as silk without an oily residue. A 2-oz. spray bottle is $35 at Ulta Beauty.

Too much sun and heat can result in dehydration and puffy eyes. Be sure to take along Nerium's Age-Defying Eye Serum on your summer vacay. The newest addition to the Nerium product line is their best yet. A lightweight, non-sticky formula that hydrates the delicate eye area and helps minimize lines, dark circles and puffiness. A .3 fl. oz. bottle is $80, or $60 with auto-delivery.

Mally's Evercolor Poreless Face Defender continues to be one of my fave beauty finds. It's no wonder it's one of her best-selling products. This revolutionary feather light water clear finish works with every skin tone to minimize pores and wrinkles and leaves skin with a soft, silky radiance. Skin actually glows particularly when light hits it. Without a doubt, the best makeup finisher I've ever tried. Sponge included. $40 at

Paul & Joe Limited Edition Face & Eye Color Palette in Sunshine & Sand is formulated with Jojoba Seed Oil, Orange Flower Extract, and White Lily Extract. Glides on skin and is ultra moisturizing. The palettes are in the shapes of sailboats and are housed in a slim poppies-covered compact. $34 available at

Frownies Eye Gels will soothe, refresh and revitalize the under eye area after a day in the sun, a night out partying, or when you want to look your best. The cooling gel eye pads are formulated with Immune Shield active vitamin E serum to smooth and soften wrinkles and dark circles. Each package contains 3 sets of Eye Gels. Each pair can be used 3-4 times, keep the Gels moist with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator in between uses. $29.99

Every girl needs a great waterproof mascara for summer. Mineral Fusion's Waterproof Mineral Mascara naturally conditions lashes with argan oil and aloe, repels water and lasts until you take it off without flaking or clumping. The rich raven black color defines lashes. Hypo-allergenic, gluten and cruelty-free. $18.99 at

Spritz a little of Wen's Spring Gardenia Green Tea Replenishing Treatment Mist on your hair to revive hair between shampoos or use as a light leave-in conditioner. I like to apply it before going in the pool to create a barrier against chlorine. Available for a limited time only. A 6-oz. spray bottle retails for $40 at

Earth Therapeutics Dream Silk Sleep Mask will ensure a good night's sleep by blocking out light while traveling on trains and airplanes and in hotel rooms this summer. Made of cozy plush on one side and silk on the other with an adjustable velcro closure. $9.99 at
