Summer lovin’

As refreshing as a cool pitcher of lemonade after a long swim, the products in your June Allure Beauty Box are revitalizing summer treats. The warm-weather routine inside is all about delivering glassy skin and hair that’s so frizz-free, you’d think you’d never met a humid day. Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Dew Drops, a serum that’s as quenching as it sounds, illuminates skin while Saturday Skin’s whipped moisturizer leaves cheeks soft with a subtle glow. Aveda’s leave-in conditioner and Paul Mitchell’s scalp treatments are resets for even beach-wrecked hair, and Natura’s tropical-scented body lotion will have you dreaming of sunsets surfside.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Niacinamide Dew Drops - Full Size

Why you’ll love it: Niacinamide is a powerhouse that can boost radiance, decrease redness, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation. In this lightweight, cooling pink formula—its gel-like texture is perfect for summer— the superstar ingredient makes skin super bright. This multitasking serum is also fortified with antioxidant watermelon extract and moringa seed oil and hydrating hyaluronic acid. “No singular product has visibly reduced my redness and enhanced my glow as well as the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops has,” says Han. “I was wowed by the very apparent glow-up. Jaw, meet floor.”

How you’ll use it: Applied to clean skin, the serum wakes up complexions and sinks in quickly. You can also mix a pump into liquid foundation for a subtle glow.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Detox Kombucha Rinse - Full Size

Why you’ll love it: The pointed nozzle makes it easy to apply this clarifying treatment right onto your scalp, where it feels delightfully tingly and rinses clean. It whisks away days’ worth of hairspray, pomade, dry shampoo, and beach trips with it, while adding a nice shine to the hair —a perk you don’t get with a lot of clarifying rinses.

How you’ll use it: Once a week, use this in place of your regular shampoo. Squirt it onto your scalp and massage it in, then rinse after one to three minutes. (Since you probably don’t have a clock in your shower, you can follow one editor’s guidelines: She likes leaving the apple cider vinegar and kombucha treatment on for as long as it takes to listen to her favorite Taylor Swift song.)

Saturday Skin Pretty Pop Cream - Full Size

Why you’ll love it: This is one decadent moisturizer! As the whipped texture sinks into skin, it feels deeply moisturizing and leaves complexions velvety soft with a natural-looking glow. There’s no obvious residue, so it layers seamlessly under sunscreen and makeup. The scent is faint when you first apply it—fresh and pleasant, like a citrus candy—and fades after it dries down.

How you’ll use it: You can use it in the morning after washing your face and/or at night before bed. “I know it won’t end up smearing onto my pillows,” says Calaor.

Aveda nutriplenish™ leave-in conditioner - Travel Size

Why you’ll love it: Just in time for the season’s humidity-induced frizz, this leave-in conditioner smooths flyaways without dragging down your roots or flattening your hair’s natural texture. It couldn’t be easier to apply—a quick mist is all you need—and it makes hair shiny and hydrated on the spot.

How you’ll use it:
Mist the spray onto wet or dry hair for a quick shot of shine that also smooths frizz and flyaways.
