  • 1 of 8 Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant
  • Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant
  • Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, $7

    This new antiperspirant innovation launched earlier this year, and we’ve been obsessed with it ever since we first laid our hands on it. It sprays on with ease and feels instantly dry to the touch, keeping your clothes free of residue and your skin silky smooth. Don’t let the cute bottle fool you — this formula has some serious power behind it to keep you protected for 48 hours.

    Our tip: Leave a bottle in your bathroom for guests to freshen up during your patio party or summer bbq.

  • 2 of 8 Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Linens
  • Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Linens
  • Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Linens, $10

    These particular papers are cooler than your standard pack of blotting film, mainly because each thin sheet is infused with bamboo and willow bark extract. Willow bark extract is like Mother Nature’s version of salicylic acid, as it’s an antiseptic ingredient that fights bacteria that can lead to breakouts. These skin-loving ingredients help sop up excess oil and sweat without disturbing makeup and the compact packet is perfect to slip into any bag, big or small.

    Available at Sephora and online at sephora.com.

  • 3 of 8 Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil, $25

    Brows provide undeniably substantial structure to a face, making them essential to your look – even if you’re paring back your makeup routine in the summer. If you’re worried about your usual brow product melting off your face, opt for a hard formula pencil like this one from Marc Jacobs Beauty to stay in place thanks to its innovative hot/cold formula that gives waterproof, ultra-precise and natural definition to your existing brows.

    Available at Sephora and online at sephora.com.

  • 4 of 8 Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle
  • Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle
  • Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle, $20

    Squeeze in an extra day or few between hair washings with the help of dry shampoo. We like this particular formula because it contains nettle, a natural oil-absorbing ingredient. A few sprays of this stuff and excess oil is absorbed. Rice starch adds volume and reduces build-up, leaving you with newfound voluminous hair.

    Available at drugstores and online at dermstore.com.

  • 5 of 8 Estée Lauder Little Black Primer
  • Estée Lauder Little Black Primer
  • Estée Lauder Little Black Primer, $24

    If you’re normally drawn to regular mascara over waterproof mascara, you may want to start adding this lash primer to your routine to avoid any sort of mascara meltdown that a heat wave may bring on. This volumizing lash primer is tinted black so it’s ample definition on its own, or it can be used as an anchor for your favorite mascara, or as a top coat to make your usual mascara water-resistant. We love a good multi-use product!

    Available at Sephora and online at sephora.com.

  • 6 of 8 Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Primer
  • Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Primer
  • Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Primer, $28

    Keep skin from dehydrating with the help of this ultra-portable and ultra-moisturizing priming stick. The water-based formula gives skin a dose of glacial water and aloe to rehydrate skin and prepare it for your makeup. While other stick primers can leave skin with a heavy feeling, this one absorbs into skin quickly.

    Available at Sephora and online at sephora.com.

  • 7 of 8 Clean Air Eau de Parfum
  • Clean Air Eau de Parfum
  • Clean Air Eau de Parfum, $69 (2.14oz)

    Give your senses a reprieve from the heat and refresh yourself with the help of this clean-as-air fragrance. Whether you’ve spent the day at the beach or doing yard work around the house, this scent will make you feel fresh and clean (it’s like Febreeze for your body). It’s a simple—yet sophisticated—scent that you can layer others on top of or wear alone.

    Available at Sephora and online at sephora.com.

  • 8 of 8 Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Pop Water Glossy Stain
  • Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Pop Water Glossy Stain
  • Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Pop Water Glossy Stain, $36

    We like gloss and we like lip stains. Combine the two concepts into one and make it semi-sheer to get summer lips that are reminiscent of the stain you get after a popsicle or two – that’s what makes this glossy stain formula from YSL a keeper. Oh, and it’s long-wearing and moisturizing for minimal touch-ups.

    Available at Sephora and online at sephora.com.
