Easy Glowing

As I said yesterday…you’re going to see a lot of guy-friendly posts this month. But I’m not forgetting about my ladies (who will, no doubt, be shopping for said guys). Expect to see plenty of gal pal picks, including today’s list of 5 top summer beauty gift ideas from eBeauty.ca!

Credentials Sole Relief Kit – $29
Summer is the season for flip flops, sandals, and pretty pedicures – so get your pieds on point with a good scrub & soothing kit. Start with the herbal exfoliating scrub to buff away dead skin with Dead Sea salt and essential oils. Then take care of your tootsies with the foot & leg smoothing lotion packed with natural ingredients for a flawless finish that will keep eyes on your fantastic footwear and not your feet. Makes a great birthday pick for your mother-in-law or a perfect addition to a spa weekend gift bag for your bridesmaids.

Phyto Phytoplage Protective Sun Veil – $29
Although we all associate harsh Canadian winters with frying our manes, the summer can be equally brutal thanks to extra time spent in the humidity, sun, and water. This nifty protective spray is boosted up with sweet almond and sunflower extracts to soothe and nourish your hair against the elements, and keep it looking shiny & fresh well past your salon appointment. Hook your friend up that just dyed her hair a wild new colour – she’ll want to protect that investment!

Borghese Lip Treatment Moisturizer – $22
If the gal on your gift list is still in summer fling mode, make sure her lips are prepared to pucker up with this nourishing, protecting line of tinted lip conditioners. SPF 15 protects your pout from getting cracked or dried out, while the sheer colours – ranging from a rich berry to a toasty vanilla – give a perfect kiss of colour that keeps you looking fresh-faced and au naturel. A fun choice for a friend or sibling’s birthday bash.

Bella Bronze Olive Oil & Shea Butter 3-In-1 Tan Extender – $27.50
Kids, let me tell you – I am all about SPF protection and not letting the rays get the best of you, but I’m not going to deny that time spent in the sun will generally lead to a little healthy glow. Whether you go from pink-to-bronze or your skin quickly darkens, don’t think that just because you haven’t burned, you don’t need some extra TLC for your skin. This nifty lotion does triple duty for both your face and body: it replenishes dried skin with nutrient-rich extracts from cherry tomatoes and red wine, prevents peeling and flaking, and helps your tan last longer so you don’t feel tempted to spend excess time in the sun. Bring a bottle along and gift it to the hostess at your next weekend cottage getaway.

LAVANILA Vanilla Coconut Fragrance – $20 – $61
Do you love that cocoa butter scent that’s universally associated with summertime? Then you’ll dig eco-friendly brand LAVANILA’s take on the scent with their Vanilla Coconut fragrance. Infused with young coconut, tiare flower, and Madagascar vanilla, it’s a blast of the tropics that’ll get any girl in a summer state of mind with a single spritz. Available in three sizes, including a beach-friendly rollerball formula, this is a sweet birthday choice for your darling sister.
