I’m a sucker for lip balms, especially those with an SPF. Lotus Skincare has an amazing one called Papaya SPF 18 Lip Balm that tastes great and protects your little pucker during the day. Packed with olive, coconut, and soybean oils to nourish and Vitamin E rounds out the gang with its antioxidant power.

How are your little toesies looking? Mine too so we need to go get a pedicure, pronto! But how confident are you in the cleanliness of the establishment? Take one of Dr. Carolyn Siegal’s, a Beverly Hills Podiatrist, Deluxe Nail Kits with you. Included are a cuticle pusher, cuticle nipper, nail clipper, wood stick, block buffer, four way buffer, emory board, toe separators, and a liner for the pedi tub. Jennifer Aniston and Lindsay Lohan are fans and the bags are super cute!

The sun shows more imperfections than hi-definition TV so your skin has to look perfect. Check out the pink egg-shaped Beautyblender sponge for the ultimate in foundation/tinted moisturizer application. The rounded edges were created to fit to the contours of your face and let you work in broad expanses of cheeks and tiny areas on the sides of your nose with no visable streaks. Blendercleanser is the soy based cleanser that is antibacterial and earth friendly – a lovely combination!

Hot summer nights mean you need good lips. And good lips aren’t cracked and flaky – your gloss needs to look like glass. So, grab a tube of Philosophy’s new Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Cream to prime your pout. The sugar gently buffs lips and the peppermint smells delicious. You can kiss for days!

But let’s say you’re on your ski boat and you need to have some serious lasting power involved in your makeup because reapplying is just out of the question. Cargo’s Swimmables Kit is perfect for you with its Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Charcoal, Waterproof Mascara in Black, and Tinted Lip Balm in a sheer rose shade. It even comes in a little tote that floats just like your boat keys so you can find it if you have an overboard situation!
