Ice cream-inspired beauty must-haves for summer

You know summer has arrived when you can’t help but indulge in a refreshing ice cream cone with two scoops of your favorite flavor. But you can’t always have an ice cream in your hand, so instead, grab one of these ice cream-inspired beauty products that remind us of our favorite summer treat.


Vineyard Peach Body Butter

Vineyard Peach Body Butter

Soothe parched summer skin with The Body Shop’s Vineyard Peach Body Butter. Refreshing and creamy just like peach ice cream, this body butter is one summer beauty must-have that you’ll keep on using even after summer has come and gone. (, $20) 


Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss

Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss

Pink strawberry ice cream is pretty, but not quite as pretty as the new lightweight Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss by Too Faced. In three hot-for-summer shades that won’t leave you sticky, this shiny gloss looks beautiful on its own as well as layered over your favorite lipstick. We say splurge on all three! (, $16)


Everlasting Gel Polish

Everlasting Gel Polish

Tired of regular old nail polish and looking for something that’s long lasting yet affordable? Grab the Kiss Nails At-Home Gel Kit for a salon quality manicure you can do yourself. Our favorite Everlasting Gel Polish color is a bold pink shade called Lush which reminds us of a juicy berry sorbet. While gel polish doesn’t taste nearly as good as sorbet, it’ll look just as delicious! (Walgreens stores, $10)


Tinted Brow Gel

Tinted brow gel

Unruly eyebrows can ruin an otherwise perfect makeup look, so keep yours full and in place with Tinted Brow Gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills. The botanical formula, which is a cream/gel mix, is available in five shades that glide on and define in no time flat. The brow gel in Espresso, a rich dark brown, is reminiscent of our all-time favorite ice cream — chocolate, of course! (, $29)


Lemon Sugar Body Hydrating Mist

Lemon Sugar Body Hydrating Mist

Perk up your skin with one of the most refreshing scents of summer courtesy of the Get Misty Lemon Sugar Body Hydrating Mist from mark. Spray it on and you’ll be transported to a summer paradise with just one whiff. And if you want to go all the way, dig in to a dish of lemon sherbet to cool off and relax in the summer heat. (, $12)


Blueberry Cleansing Towelettes

Blueberry cleansing towelettes

Milkshakes are a welcome treat any time of year, but right now we’re crushing on the Blueberry Cheesecake shake from The Milk Shake Factory. Looking for a calorie-free version? Well, we can’t exactly help you there, but when it comes to blueberries, we always think of the Yes To Blueberries cleansing towelettes. They’re affordable, perfect for travel (to The Milk Shake Factory maybe!) and effortlessly remove makeup. (, $3) 


Vanilla Nuts Eye Shadow

Vanilla Nuts Eye Shadow

Forget a bold makeup look this summer and opt for a more neutral face starting with Laura Mercier’s Matte Eye Shadow in Vanilla Nuts. This light Champagne color that reminds us of creamy vanilla ice cream deposits dense color with a flawless finish that blends well. Don’t say we didn’t warn you if you want every color in the collection! (, $23)


Fiori Eau De Parfum

Fiori eau de parfum

Summer is the time to splurge on a light, fruity fragrance and and our go-to pick is Fiori by Vince Camuto. Fresh and soft featuring top notes of juicy pink grapefruit and white nectarine, this limited edition perfume complete with a pretty bottle will make you want to treat yourself to a big bowl of fruity sorbet. Sounds like a good idea! (, $78)


Staccato Nail Polish

Staccato nail polish

Chocolate chip is a classic ice cream flavor that will look extra hot on your nails this summer — in the form of Deborah Lippmann’s Staccato Collection.
