This is a beauty-lover PSA: Dermstore is having a BIG sale for Memorial Day, featuring lots of brands at a 20% discount with the promo code ‘SUMMER‘. I peeked through the site and rounded up all the products that are in heavy rotation in my summer beauty routine, so you can check them out and, if you’re interested, score them at a rare discount.
I’m well-stocked with all of these products currently, but I did take the opportunity to snag the multitasking RMS Lip2Cheek in ‘Spell’ during the sale, which has been on my wishlist for a bit.

All of the products I included happen to be ‘clean’, natural formulas, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Bath & Body
Vita Liberata Body Blur :: This is my go-to for special events: it’s an instant, healthy tan in a bottle with a lovely light-reflecting shimmer that blurs imperfections and makes your skin look radiant and glowy; think of it as a BB cream for your bod. (A word of warning: this does transfer a bit, so be mindful of wearing it with light colors and/or sitting down on light fabrics.)
Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion :: If you want a great self-tanning option with zero transfer and minimal odor, this one is my current fave. It goes on like a lightweight lotion, and the color develops over several hours. The lotion doesn’t have any color, so be careful and thorough when you apply because you can’t really see where it’s going; I learned this lesson the hard way when I slapped it on before work one morning. I expected a ‘gradual’ tan that would take several uses to show up, but you get a noticeable dose of color after the first application. (Bonus: it’s a ‘clean,’ organic formula.)
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream :: This shimmery, super-hydrating body butter is summer in a tub, and looks so pretty on sun-kissed (or self-tanned) skin. My husband loves the way this one smells; it’s a yummy mix of caramel and pistachio.
Supergoop! SPF 50 Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C :: I use this every day for sun protection. It’s really lightweight and sinks right into the skin, and has a light citrus scent.
LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant – Vanilla & Air :: My all-time favorite natural deodorant. This [almost always] holds up all day for me, plus it’s super comfortable to wear, and doesn’t cause any dryness irritation. (Through much trial and error, I’ve learned that underarms don’t react well to natural deodorants that contain baking soda.) The scent is clean and lovely, too.
YUNI Shower Sheets Large Body Wipes :: All natural deodorant users know that sometimes, they just… let you down. So I keep a couple of these ‘shower sheets’ in my handbag, just in case. (These would be so great to stash in your gym bag, too.)
Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo :: I use this gentle, scalp-exfoliating shampoo once or twice a week to remove product buildup and keep flakes at bay. It contains a cooling blend of peppermint, spearmint and tea tree oil that feels really refreshing in the shower.
Reverie MILK Anti-Frizz Leave-In Treatment :: I’m all about an air-dry in the summertime — 9/10 times my hair ends up piled up in a messy topknot — and this smooths everything out and minimizes frizz. I’m also in love with the herbal, earthy fragrance.
