6. Yes To Coconut Hydrate & Restore Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion, $7.99. Moisturizing is super important—even in the summer. Spray a few times, rub the light lotion in and you are on your way.


7. Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics, $4.99. A great way to spice up your summer ponytail without leaving a dent in your hair or your wallet.


8. CoverGirl Lash Exact Mascara, $6.44. My summer make-up routine is pretty light. But this mascara is a must—it separates, defines and lengthens my lashes better than most of the expensive mascaras I have tried.
