Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle

Our beauty routines definitely vary from summer to winter, especially if you live where the weather changes dramatically like it does where I live.   I’ve put together my list of 9 Summer Must-Haves $20 or less that will fit most any budget and are sure to please.

Jouer makes some of my favorite must-haves any time of the year and I love the Moisture Tints,.  This packaging of it is the newest addition to their line.   These Mini Luminizing Moisture Tints are perfect for summer.   Light enough to let your skin breathe, SPF protection and a glowy complexion, all the things that are a must for over 40 skin.   But now in these mini sizes you can carry one in your handbag, desk, makeup bag at home and maybe even give one to share with a friend so they know how fabulous they are too!   $20 for a pack of 4.  Golden is my perfect shade.

Avon is ready to help you with your summer frizzy hair.   Their new Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield is simple to use and helps keep frizz at bay for up to 3 days.   No more out of control, frizzies in these humid summer days.   Just apply a dollop of this to damp hair, then add your regular styling products, style your hair and you are set to go!   Reg. $12

Essie nail polishes have so many wonderful shades to choose from.   My go-to shade for summer the last few years has been Mini How High.   It’s the perfect pink that keeps your nails looking fresh, clean, professional and crisply polished.   $8

American Beauty has some fabulous colors in their makeup line.  This Pretty Bronze Bronzing Powder goes on beautifully.   There are a few shades to choose from to match your skin tone, and it comes in a nicely mirrored compact with an actual usable brush!  Reg. $17.50

Jouer’s Cheek and Lip Tints are summer simple to use.  You can use your fingers or a brush to give you a sheer beautiful flush on your cheeks or tap on your lips for a pop of color.  This shade is Whisper, but there are 7 additional shades for your perfect match.   $20 

Take an energizing shower using Liz Earle Energizing Body Wash.  Made with pure plant extracts, the Sweet Orange scent is so refreshing and makes you ready to face the hot, humid days.   3.3 0z size $15.

Tanning towelettes are all the rage and these Sonia Kashuk for Target Sunless Tanning Towelettes can’t be beat in measure of effectiveness and cost.   Just make sure you apply using circular motions or you may end up with streaks.   $9.99 for a package of 6 face or 4 body.

Supergoop! makes these Quick Sticks that are 100% natural, contain Vitamin C and are super easy to use.   Just swipe them on the most often sun exposed places, your face and hands.  $9 and you can use it on newborns as well. 

And last but not least, another Jouer product! Moisturizing Lip Gloss is available in 20 shades.  I own a few including this shade Divine.   They’re moisturizing, contain Vitamins A, C & E and shea butter, jojoba and pomegranate seed oils.  They’re $20 and conveniently connect to the other pieces in the line.
