Check out my to 10 summer skincare essentials after the jump!

I just raved about their shampoo and condition in the “Summer Hair Care” post, but D’Arcy skin care products are my all time fave, and they even have an Environmental Veil Cream and an SPF 30 daily moisturizer that both smell AMAZING (way better than sunscreen :)). They are perfect for the summer and year round!

Thanks for the top 10 list! Love this. I’ll have to try that shave cream.

One other product to check out is a daily moisturizer with SPF 45: AntiPhotoAging 3-in-1 Daily Defense (http://www.antiphotoaging.com). This moisturizer is incredible! It has literally changed my complexion and skin texture. I have naturally oily skin, so I’m always super careful about what moisturizers and sunscreens I use, but the 3-in-1 Daily Defense actually minimizes the oil, while reducing the sun spots and fine lines around my eyes and mouth. It just takes one product to moisturize, repair and protect my skin and I recommend it to everyone I know!

I love eos Shave Cream. It’s the only shaving cream I use. Works great and never gives my sensitive skin a rash. Makes shaving so much easier!

As far as deodorant though, I’m not a fan of Ban. I find it doesn’t work as well as Degree.
