Best of Beauty: Summer Routine

Today we thought we would step out of the interior design realm to share our favorite beauty products that we keep on hand all summer long.


We are big fans of a no fuss routine, which can be achieved by incorporating a few lux items into your regimen. Quality over quantity undoubtedly applies to beauty products. Although our beauty picks can be considered investments, splurge-worthy products are always worth it in our opinion because they will yield long-term results; therefore you can be certain you are getting what you pay for. We abide by our no fuss skincare rule even more so during hot summer months spent in the sun. We’ve selected our favorite clean and light products below that will keep you feeling hydrated and refreshed all summer.

We’ve highlighted some of our most coveted beauty products that we swear by below and linked the rest of our beauty routine via shop the post below.


Fresh Sugar Face Polish

 This Sugar Face Polish is a must-have part of our routine and at its great price point it is one that we continue to repurchase time and time again. This item can be purchased in the full size or a travel size, and it is one that we always include in our cosmetic bag when traveling. The reason this is a favorite is because it is a great exfoliant but also gentle at the same time, which can be difficult to come by. Not only is it gentle but it is formulated with real strawberry seeds, which makes it refreshingly fragrant. 

La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream 

Crème de la Mer is our Holy Grail product. It is definitely a heavier moisturizer but after remaining a top ranked product for years by beauty professionals it is one you are guaranteed to get your money’s worth out of.  Purchasing the travel size, which is priced at a much more accessible price point, is a great way to test the product before springing for the full size jar. 

Oribe Conditioner for Brilliance and Shine 

It’s recommended to rotate your hair products, specifically shampoo and conditioner, but one line that we always go back to no matter how may we have on rotation is Oribe.  After trying many different Oribe products the line that ranked highest for us was the brilliance and shine line. The reason it is a favorite of ours is because it is lightweight with a subtle scent and is said to work well on any hair type.  

Goop Luminous Melting Cleanser

Allure Best of Beauty winner, this Goop Cleanser is the first and most important step in our routine. We love this product because it is lightweight and non-tacky but still manages to get the job done. The ingredients are clean and fresh including almond, shea butter, olive and coconut oils, to name a few.

Beekman 1802 facial cleansing wipes 

We are obsessed with these Beekman 1802 Cleansing Wipes. Often times cleansing wipes are far too harsh which is the main reason these are a go-to. Formulated with pure goat milk and cucumber extract these are wonderful for sensitive skin. 

Santa Maria Novella Rosewater

We first discovered the Santa Maria Novella Rose Water in Florence, Italy and have been in love since. We keep this product on hand all summer long as there is nothing more refreshing than a spritz of it after being in the sun.

Beekman Honey & Oats Goat Milk Soap Scrub Bar

Another favorite of ours from Beekman is the Goat Milk Honey & Oats Soap. This is another product that we cannot live without during the summer because it will leave you feeling clean without drying out your skin. We love an all natural product, especially when it smells as delicious as this one.
