1: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
This stuff is great for when you’re just about to head off to bed and spot an angry zit on your chin or left cheek. Slap a little dab of this lotion on the problem spot and leave it on until you wash your face in the AM.

5: Moroccan Oil (Travel Size)
This is perfect for when you’re traveling for a weekend and don’t want to pack shampoo & conditioner, but know the hotel products will be a B- at best. Then you’re left with a tangly mess. Moroccan oil is great for tangles and getting that brush through a couple knots in curly, straight, or wavy hair. Plus, it smells incredible.
6: Blue in Capri Shower Gel
Squeeze this onto a loofa and you’ll be smelling like a bag of fresh lemons & wild sage off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

Bring the calm onto your lips this summer with a CBD chapstick blend. Many of the brands I’ve seen include ingredients such as beeswax, shea butter, and cocoa butter.

My personal favorite: Comfort Colors in XXL
18: Cuffed French Terry Lounge Shorts
Another way to get cozy on a brisk summer night. These low-price shorts from Forever 21 are great for a night by the bonfire or after a quick dip in the hot-tub. Just slide on a pair of waterproof white Birkenstocks and you’re ready to take on the night!

Your hair will be thanking you after you apply this quick 5-minute mask here and there. It’s super affordable and it ranks at the top of the official Addison hair mask list. Pick it up at Trader Joe’s!
23: Paradise Hotel – Hulu
Self-care is indulging in good TV AKA trashy, mindless TV. Enough said.
24: Colorful Glassware
How pretty are these glasses? It’s nice to have a set of summer glasses for when friends come over or when you need a large glass of watermelon & pineapple water by the pool. Twist a little lemon around the edge and hand over that Old Fashioned.
