Last Ditch Summer Beauty

Summer is quickly coming to an end, and as excited as I am for fall boots, I’m still not ready to shed my flip-flops just yet. In fact, I plan to squeeze every ounce of sunshine fun that I can over the next two weeks. These eight products are perfect for my last ditch summer run—and might just help me extend summer (in my mind) for even a few weeks more.

Bobbi Brown’s Beach Oil

This moisturizing oil smells exactly like the beach. Smooth it on, sit on your couch, close your eyes and—poof!—you’re seaside. I love wearing this on rainy days or when I’m out at night rocking beachy waves and a boho-chic dress.

Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist

An excellent hair volumizer and texturizer any time of year, Philip B’s mist instantly evokes thoughts of the ocean. Kukui, coconut oils, and sea salt give your hair great, beachy body, as well as an amazing summertime scent.

NEST Beach Liquid Hand Soap

Extend that beach house smell by putting a bottle of this coconut-and-melon scented hand soap on your sink. It will still be just as cleansing and moisturizing when September rolls around.

BareMinerals Faux Tan Sunless Body Tanner

Let your glow go gradually—and at the speed of your choice—with this excellent, moisturizing self-tanner.

FarmHouse Fresh Coconut Beach Shea Sugar Scrub

A light, moisturizing, 90% sugar scrub is a great way to reinvigorate your skin—and your upbeat, beachy mood—during your morning shower (or evening) shower.

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Collection Shimmer Nail Polish

Polish your fingers and toes with this pretty seashell pink, which has just a hint of shimmer. It’s definitely a summer shade, but is neutral enough to look nice year round.

The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzing Powder

Keep your skin sun-kissed with this matte, sheer bronzer. The fewer layers you apply, the less bronzy you’ll be, so you can adjust your beach-bum hue gradually as the temps begin to cool.

Demeter Sex on the Beach Cologne Spray

Have one last summer fling with this refreshing, fruity, cocktail-scented spray.
