5 Essentials to Survive the Summer

by Marie Lodi

Embrace summer with these 5 products we are loving right now.

I Got You, Babe

Bodycare brand Megababe (megababebeauty.com) saved my life and thighs. I never have to deal with painful chafing ever again thanks to Thigh Rescue ($14), a lightweight, easy to apply, ant-friction stick. It’s a year-round essential, but true savior during the sweaty summer months. –Marie Lodi

Conversation Starter

Seen on the hands of Gloria Steinem and Erykah Badu, the Clitoring (penelopijones.com) is a not-so-subtle way to show some love to arguably the best part of the snatch. Handmade in Brooklyn, the rings come in sterling silver ($157) and brass ($95). Get your finger on the pulse and become a member of the clitorati yourself. –Callie Watts

Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

I’m in love with the ‘80s-inspired sunscreen brand Vacation (vacation.inc). Every product is a delight, from the Classic Whip SPF 30 ($22), which looks like canned whipped cream, to the SPF 30 Baby Oil ($22), which is inspired by the questionable suntanning technique from our youth, but so much safer! –M.L.

It’s A Vibe

Shopping for a bathing suit can feel like visiting the fifth circle of hell because of frustratingly inconsistent sizing, but Kitty and Vibe (kittyandvibe.com, $58-$110) are changing the game. They’re the first brand to make bikini bottoms based on booty size, go up to a size 5X, and have small band options. Plus, the prints are gorg! –M.L.

All Clogged Up

I’m all about a comfy clog, but Hunter’s Unisex In/Out Bloom Clogs ($60, hunterboots.com) go beyond a good fit. They’re made from recycled materials and algae that’s harvested from cleaning up natural waterways. Not only do they work great in the garden, but they also come in a variety of fun colors. –Laurie Henzel
