Let’s face it summer is gross. You’re sweaty and sticky and so is everyone else! Outdoor events like Made in America and Curlfest require standing outside for hours in the heat and humidity and they aren’t the only place where things can get a little grimy. In between the fun of rooftop parties and outdoor brunches you have to deal with the funk leather seats, public transportation, and that weird smoke that people think you can’t smell from their e-cigarettes leaves behind.

1. Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender $7.00

This vitamin-c enriched cult favorite is designed to calm and refresh your face but in a pinch it can perk up knees, elbows and toes. It’s available in two other scents but the lavender is my personal favorite.

2. My Lucid Bliss “Oooh” And “Aaah” Hair Refresher $24.99

Developed by celebrity hairstylist Tiffany Lamb this spray eliminates all odors from natural hair and bundles so that all people encounter when they cross your path is coconut oil and a smile.

3.  Herban Essentials Eucalyptus Oil Towelettes $16.00 

These all-purpose wipes are a total godsend. They can be used to wipe down phone and keyboards and even remove light stains on clothes. They come drenched in different essential oils and can be breathed in to help with anxiety or placed over a car air conditioning vent to release a pleasant and uplifting smell into a ride that’s had a little too much summer fun.

4. Blk/Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Gel Primer $9.95

This light primer includes the natural astringent witch hazel and can be used with and without makeup. Use it to mattify your t-zone or keep your foundation in place.

5. Bliss Lemon & Sage Refreshing Body Wipes With Natural Deodorant $8

It's time! 🤗💙 All. New. Everything. Available now on blissworld.com. #ThisIsBliss

These pre-moistened cleansing wipes contain an aluminum-free deodorant that leaves you smelling great safely. Layer their invigorating lemon fragrance by adding a travel size version of their body butter.

7. AURA CACIA YOGA MIST $9.99

This spray is marketed as a hands-free yoga mat clean up solution but it can also be used as a room and body spray. Spray a little around your office or in your gym bag.

8. DR. BRONNER’S ORGANIC HAND SANITIZER $3.99

Hand sanitizer is supposed to protect us but the drying ingredients in many options on the market need us leaving protection. Clean up without ending up with cracked cuticles by choosing a lighter option that’s just as effective.

10. Lavanilla Underarm Detox $26.00 

Making the switch to natural deodorant is not without it’s challenges but half of them could be eradicated by properly detoxing your underarm area. This brush-on formula is a foolproof way to get started.

11. Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes 6.49

Stash a couple of these in a ziploc bag for wiping down subway poles, bus seats, or any other suspect surface you come in contact with on your way on your way to do hoodrat things with your friends.

12. Sole Saver Shoes $21.95

These are perfect to keep on hand in case you break a flip-flop, snap the strap of your shoe, or just don’t wanna be that chick with her shoes off in the club. They’re slightly more sturdy and way more stylish than traditional fast flats and as a bonus the company is Black owned! 

13. MILANI PREP + SET + GO TRANSPARENT FACE POWDER $9.99

This incredibly blendable product is the perfect dupe for the Makeup Forever HD powder that’s long been a celeb favorite. It’s completely transparent so it won’t interfere with your makeup.
