10 Beauty Products That Will Make Your Summer Easier + Giveaway

This post is in partnership with Vocal Point and their partner, P&G. All opinions remain my own.#AD
It's no secret that there are tons of things to do in the summer. It always seems like we're on the go 24/7 whether that be to work, a family outing, the pool, or to simply pick up necessities from the store. Costco is probably a weekly stop for most of my readers, and for a good reason! They carry amazing brands you use in your every day life at a sweet price and usually in larger quantities (less stops means more time for your summer activities).

Today I'm sharing 10 of my favorite every day products that will make your summer beauty routine easy and practical.
10 Must Haves:
1. Bulk Shampoo and Conditioner: This is a no brainer! I do this year round but it seems like the summer calls for extra washes due to salt water and chlorine hair! These big boys last for ages! Pantene Advanced Care is for all hair types and is something the entire family can use. 

2. Clinical Strength Deodorant: During the summer, the heat really stretches my typical deodorant to the max. Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant lasts through the sweat and heat every day! It's that extra mile I need to stay smelling fresh while outside.

3. Crest 3D White Strips 1hr Express: Generally I use the traditional Crest White Strips but the 1 hr. Express strips are the epitome of time well spent. Just after one use your teeth are a shade whiter. Obviously these pair perfectly with a nice summer tan. Pop em' on before a barbecue or summer date night and you're good to go!

4. Interchangeable Razors: These are another awesome bulk find at Costco. I love the interchangeable razor heads because they always seem to make my legs feel and look silkier than a traditional razor (which is important for beach days obviously). The Gillette Venus Spa Razors glide softly along your skin making shaving a breeze!
5. Waterproof/SPF Foundation: If you have problems with your makeup melting off in the summer, try a waterproof or sweat-proof foundation! It will be a life saver for pool, beach and lake days if you're the type of person that needs some face coverage.

6. Makeup Setting Spray: Makeup setting spray is your best friend! It will prolong your makeup no matter what type of foundation you are wearing and will give your skin a fresh and healthy look. I love to keep a mini bottle in my purse to refresh my makeup on a hot day!

7. Liquid Lipstick: Liquid lipstick isn't going ANYWHERE in the summer heat, it's there to stay! If you're like me, I need something on my lips at all times. I wore liquid lipsticks to a summer festival last month where the heat rose to 95 degrees and it stayed on like a champ all day!

8. Essential Oil Perfume: I've never found a traditional perfume that outlasted the smell of an essential oil. Probably because when essential oils mix with your body heat, the scent is elevated. These stay on me all day and I find that they even linger after swimming.

9. Waterproof Mascara: Sweat, humidity, water...there's so many ways for your mascara to smudge during the summer. That's why I pull out my trustee waterproof mascara when the temperature reaches around 80 degrees. It's fail-proof and I don't have to worry about raccoon eyes by the end of the day.

10. Dry Shampoo: Not only is dry shampoo great to use in between washes, but it also gives your hair that tousled beach wave look. I spray some in my hair after I've loosely curled it and my hair has an instant "effortless" beachy look!
