One doesn’t really have to say that much to explain the importance of Sephora in a girl’s life. The products and brands associated with the store form part of our daily beauty routines — beauty routines that we just can’t live without.
Whenever summer comes along, a couple of things happen; We get excited for the season where we can wear all the bright colored clothing and floral prints we want, and we also get excited to go out and enjoy the much-needed sun. The sun, unfortunately, does a lot of damage to our hair, skin, and sometimes even nails, and only the best beauty products can come to the rescue.
One area we definitely should not neglect is our beauty products. Who wants to go out looking all dull and frizzy? Yeah, nobody. That is why it is important to know which products work best in summer so that you can look your best from head to toe everytime you step outside. We’ve compiled a much-needed list of Sephora products for this summer that will be your best friends. From lipsticks to hair products, skin products and so much more, here is a breakdown of the 25 most sought-after Sephora products this summer so far that every beauty girl has to have.
Now, we know how important an amazing body is for summer. We spend so much time at the gym toning and sculpting our bodies because not only do we want to be fit, but we also want to fit nicely into those favorite pair of jeans and those cheeky little skirts. Well, Clarins Golden Booster Body helps us to achieve that glowing and radiant body we seek for summer. A few drops of this into your body moisturizer will do the trick.
We have labeled this as “more than just a hair dryer” because it is – This Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is a “Styling Tool” that every girl needs in her kit. Besides the fact that it looks pretty cool, you’ll be pleased to learn that this dryer prevents heat damage which will help us retain the moisture and shine every girl wants in her summer hair. It also dries and styles at the same time. Its 4 precise heat settings will help you get the exact temperature you desire while styling that beautiful hair of yours.
No one likes dry, cracked lips, especially in the summertime. Your lips are supposed to be soft and looking like they belong on your pretty face but unfortunately, sometimes our lips have a mind of their own. Sometimes we struggle to give them that soft and healthy smoothness. Well, this moisture therapy lip balm by Jack Black is great not only because it has an SPF 25, but also because it contains, Vitamin E, green tea extract, avocado oil and grapefruit which help to soothe and relieve chapped lips.
Reviews for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty have been incredible since its launch and there is no wonder why – the beauty line give us great quality products that we need, just like this liquid foundation that many girls need. Perhaps the great part of the foundations is that they cater to all different types of skin tones (to be more specific – that’s a groundbreaking 40 shades!). This foundation is oil-free and is very lightweight, giving us that effortless and natural summer look.
Great hydration does not necessarily just mean drinking loads of H2O. Sometimes our skins need a little extra hydration and that is why the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Detox Bouncy Hydrating Gel is perfect for us. This oil-free moisturizer helps to hydrate, detox and refresh our skins. Although we love summer, we all know the toll it can have on our delicate skins. This light-weight gel nourishes our skin as it prevents water loss and it is packed with Vitamins A, C, and E which are excellent antioxidants.
Anything with “SPF50” excites us because, well, as much as we love the sun that comes with summer as it warms us up and helps us enjoy our days, we all need a little protection from it. This product by Amore Pacific, that protects from both UVA and UVB rays helps us get that flawless coverage that is ideal for every photo op. What’s perhaps the best aspect of this product is that it can be used on all different skin types. So, whether you have oily, dry, combination, sensitive or normal skin, you can enjoy the benefits of this amazing product.
So we’ve covered quite a lot of essential must-have products for summer on this list already and you might be wondering what else is important to include in your shopping basket. Well, as a young and trendy girl, you want to not only look good but smell good. Three words best describe the fragrance – fresh and floral. The keynotes of this Maison Margiela fragrance include bergamot, heliotrope, and coconut milk. You’ll not only look like summer but also smell like it too.
We all know the importance of a good primer and thank goodness Smashbox does too. We like this product due to many reasons and perhaps the best part of it is that it minimizes those pesky little pores that seem to peep out when we least expect it, ruining our selfie moments, and making us tap more and more on those filters to try to smoothen our skins out. Well, with this primer, let’s just say that we won’t be having much use for those filters anymore as it helps to reduce pores and also has that all-important shine control that every girl needs for a hot summer’s day.
Every girl needs a nude collection for her lips. Yes, you read that right. This is not a “want” or a “nice to have”. Nope. This is a need people.

Now, of course, our healthy and glowing skins are important for summer but let us not forget about our hair as we want to look good from head to toe. Healthy looking full and shiny hair is the dream of almost every girl but sometimes our beloved season gets in the way by giving us that pesky Frizz that no one wants. Well, the Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield will take care of this problem for you as you’ll use it on your dry hair and step out looking good any time of the day.
