Summer is a hard time for beauty junkies: You want to look your best, but every time you go out in the heat, everything from your hair to your toes melts. Okay, maybe not literally, but the heat wave across the country has temps pushing 90 (if not 100!), so I don’t think I’m exaggerating that much.
Despite the heat, summer is a time when the right products are key. Bronzer can help those of us who don’t get a natural glow; the right hair tools can help tame humidity; and sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen is king.
As a self-professed beauty product junkie, I scoured the internet and beauty aisles to find this summer’s must-haves. I tried the most promising products to give you an honest review of each. Click through and see what made the cut.
