2.Laguna Beach Textile Co

Summer Essentials We Swear By-Really!

I love spa’s. What I love most is their plush towels. Laguna Beach Textile Co. brings the classic California beach style and premium, resort quality to every home and beach.

Beautiful colorful towels in an assortment to choose from. What I love most, they donate a portion of our profits to the Rainforest Trust and the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. The Rainforest Trust helps purchase, protect, and safeguard tropical habitats, working with local organizations and communities throughout Latin America, Africa, and Asia to protect endangered species. Rainforests are not only home to wildlife, but are also vital players in climate change, rising sea levels, and ocean acidification.

3. HempXtra Calendula Face Cream

Summer Essentials We Swear By-Really!

We all look for hydration in the summer, especially when you are out in the sun and your skin feels parched. I am obsessed with a new product called HempXtra CBD Calendula skin care cream. HempXtra, has created an exceptional, must have, beauty moisturizer that gives you amazing results. What’s the key ingredient? Calendula, also known as “flower of the sun”, has been used around the world for centuries and is one of the most beneficial herbs in the plant kingdom. Calendula has an amazing history of documented healing as well as being used by ancient Egyptians that considered it to have rejuvenating properties. Known for its outstanding ability to heal the skin. It has no known drug interactions, no toxic effects and no adverse effects for long-term use.
As always, please consult your physician if you are pregnant or nursing. Calendula was the International Herb Associations 2008 Herb of the Year for its potent and complex array of phytonutrients that helps facilitate the skin’s restorative cycle. Try it today for $60.00



So I came across these little bottles and wanted to know more about the product. After trying them, I am addicted. A tart cherry juice loaded with health benefits. “Enjoy all the benefits of our 100% tart cherry juice with its naturally great Cheribundi taste.” So if you want to boost immunity, improve your sleep, reduce soreness, get energy, rebuild your muscles, there is a bottle for each.

4. Behave Aide-Kiss Your Cravings Goodbye

Summer Essentials We Swear By-Really!

Many of us think of losing a few pounds in the summer. I found a way to do it without starving to death. A lip moisturizer formulated with all-natural ingredients, helps to reduce sugar and junk food cravings while simultaneously freshening breath and moisturizing the lips. It’s the perfect product to keep those dry lips moisturized and help maintain a healthy diet during the summer months (AKA bikini season). It might sound too good to be true, but there’s a reason why this product has a cult following. The secret of KISS YOUR CRAVINGS GOODBYE™ is the combination of essential oils and natural extracts that induce the urge to drink water. By addressing dehydration, which is commonly confused with hunger, this Behave-Aid™ can trick the mind utilizing the methodology of application and turn a bad habit (donuts, anyone?) into a good one.
Try it today! $17.99 on Amazon or online.

5. Smashbox Primer Oil

Summer Essentials We Swear By-Really!

We all wanna achieve a summer glow without too much makeup. Photo Finish Primer Oil preps your skin for makeup and hydrates for seamless light application of any makeup. I love it because it gives you an ultra-light, fast-absorbing face oil that doubles as a face primer—imparting a glowing, radiant look with a dewy finish. You will not live without it once you try it! $42 at Sephora
