    31 Cute, Fun, And Practical Things That'll Help You Out This Summer

    Heat, sweat, blisters, humidity...there's a product in here to help.

    1. A unicorn pool float so you can A) keep your drink with you at all times, B) look freaking adorable, and C) prevent your hair from getting wet*.

    2. An Urban Decay setting spray to keep your makeup picture-perfect throughout the day. Humidity, you don't stand a chance.

    3. A flowy duster you can wear with your swimsuit as a coverup, or jeans, or a dress, or whatever. It's *chef-kisses-fingers* so versatile.

    4. A tiny tube of anti-blister balm to give your feet some sweet relief on hot, sweaty days. I love cute sandals season, but man, I do NOT love blister season.

    5. And if painful blisters do strike, a compact case of hydrocolloid bandages with a gel guard designed to treat blisters while you wear them. Plus, they're super sticky and cushy so they'll stay on and give you extra support.

    6. A travel-size tarp blanket for keeping sand, dirt, and itchy grass away from your body as you soak in that sweet sunshine. Oh, just think of all the sand-free beach picnics you could have with this thing!

    7. And! A portable hammock you can easily travel with or hang in your backyard for some professional-level chilling. *This* and a good book — it is HOW you enjoy hot weather.

    8. A life-changing shoe spray that kills odor-causing bacteria and keeps your best sandals from smelling like death. Hot summer days have arrived — now you and your feet can get through them stink-free.

    9. An adorable new swimsuit, because cute clothes are the epitome of summer, especially a two-piece and one-piece option. That's just a fact, I don't make the rules!

    10. A giant dinosaur sprinkler that shoots water out of its nose (adorable) to give you a refreshing mist on scorching hot days. Also, IT'S AN INFLATABLE DINOSAUR! What more do you want!

    11. A bottle of Supergoop!'s Unseen Sunscreen — a broad spectrum 40 SPF sunscreen for protecting your skin (specifically from UVA, UVB, infrared, and blue light) *while* keeping your makeup locked in. It's super lightweight, invisible, and, basically a dream in a bottle.

    12. A razor kit subscription you can tailor to fit your lifestyle and shaving frequency, because using old, rusty razors = bad. And, hello, nobody wants to go to the beach in their cute swimsuit with painful razor bumps.

    13. A cutie lil' desk fan featuring a four-inch frame (tiny!) to create a soft breeze, no matter where you're working.

    14. A dry shampoo POWDER (!!) so you can ditch the shower on late mornings and get hair that *looks* like it just got a fresh wash — humidity be damned. Hey, nobody has to know it's going on day three...or five.

    15. A nifty "wine wand" that can help reduce headache-causing histamines and sulfite from wine so you can enjoy your end-of-day glass on the back patio without the unfortunate side effects.

    16. Or for something more cost-effective in the long run (you know, for all of us regular wine drinkers), a wine purifying carafe that doubles as a filter for removing histamines and sulfite, as well as an aerator.

    17. A large hair diffuser adapter compatible with most blow dryers so you can achieve frizz-free, natural curls — even on the most humid days — without having to spend money on an entirely new dryer. Goodbye, flyaways. Hello, sleek blowouts at home.

    18. A fun and actually cute rain jacket you wont mind getting caught in the rain with.

    19. A ridiculously cheap and equally amazing setting powder for ridding excess shine and oil on sticky days. And if you're wondering about possible flashback, there isn't any — just see for yourself:

    20. A box of antiperspirant towelettes that'll keep you dry for up to an entire week (a week!). Just gently wipe before bed, let dry for five minutes, get your sleep on, and wake up with dry, happy armpits.

    21. A pack of miracle-working oil blotting sheets if you're prone to oily skin but don't feel like washing your face four times a day. Take that (!!!), humidity!

    22. Simple rain boots you can throw on when the weather app says it will maybe not sure but probably rain that day, and know your outfit will still be cute as all get out.

    23. A pair of very trendy sunglasses that are as equally cute as they are cheap. Really, it should be a sin how affordable these are — which is great for you, no more stress when you lose them for the fifth time.

    Two reviewer photos, one showing the sunglasses that have a round gold frame with black lenses. The second is a reviewer wearing them.

    24. A highly-rated body sunscreen with SPF 50 protection for all of your outdoor activities. We love protecting our skin from harmful UV rays, yes we do!

    25. A pack of pimple patches, because summer means sweating and sweating leads to more breakouts. These will help you tackle them the moment you feel a pimple coming on.

    26. A texturizing spray that'll give instant volume back to your hair on the days when the heat weighs it down. It's made with raw silk powder that naturally adds an effortless, airy feeling to your locks.

    27. And! A manual scalp massager brush that can not only relax you on hectic days, but reduce pesky flakiness and oily build-up from regular use of hair products — the very hair products used to combat humidity and heat. This will help give your mane a break.

    28. A lightweight, button-up tank that comes in so many colors and prints, you can theoretically buy one for each day of the week and never stress over what to wear again. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    29. A long-lasting eyeshadow primer to make dang sure your perfectly blended smokey eye stays in its place from sunrise to sunset. Oily skin + humid days = no match for this.

    Reviewer's before and after photos. The before photo was taken at 7 a.m., and the after at 5 p.m. The makeup is still in place in both photos.

    30. A hydrating lip balm with SPF 25, because summer lovin' happens so fast, but it's not fun with sunburned, chapped lips. :(

    31. And a stylish fedora for keeping the sun off of your face as you romp around all summer. It's also just really cute, and I am telling you, summer is the best season for fashion.

    Ahh, here's to a sweet, sweet summer and hot weather.
