Bumble and Bumble Summer Style: Make Waves Set
Rank & Style Approved


Bumble and Bumble Summer Style: Make Waves Set

WHAT IT DOES: This dynamic duo contains all you need to create beach-worthy waves, even when there's no saltwater in sight. Start with the leave-in conditioner to detangle and fight frizz, then use the sea-salt spray to add volume and texture for matte, model-off-duty waves—no ocean required.

HELPFUL TIP: Unlike drying saltwater, this set is packed with a protective blend of aloe, kelp, coconut, and algae to provide supreme moisture and hydration. Think fresh-from-the-beach waves, but better.

Hum Nutrition Bod Squad Set

BEST FOR: Still working on that summer bod? HUM's Bod Squad Set is an excellent addition to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. It comes with two of HUM Nutrition's best-sellers—Flatter Me and Skinny Bird—that work together to boost metabolism, curb appetite, and provide relief from indigestion and bloating.

USERS SAID: "After just two days along with working out, I noticed an immediate difference! My friends and family noticed how good I looked. I only take one Flatter Me and one to two Skinny Birds a day, and the results are amazing!"

Supergoop! SPF All Stars Set

WHY YOU NEED IT: We've said it once, and we'll say it again: never skip the SPF. This essential set comes with everything you need to round out the most important step in your skincare routine—an oil-free face formula, a revolutionary setting spray, and a luxurious daily moisturizer—all with a sun protection factor of 40 or more.

LOVED FOR: Thanks to the travel-size bottles and ultra-cute carrying case, this set makes it so easy to keep your pretty skin protected any time, anywhere. No excuses, gals.

First Aid Beauty FAB Goodie Bag!

BEST FOR: With Facial Radiance Pads to exfoliate, Ultra Repair Cream to hydrate, and Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie to prime, this set is perfect for prepping skin before makeup.

FROM THE EXPERTS: An independent clinical study found that Ultra Repair Cream can increase skin hydration by a whopping 169%. No joke.

Nudestix Nude Beach Festival Kit

WHAT IT DOES: This seven-piece set emulates the prettiest shades of summer—think warm shimmery sands and ombré sunsets. With four limited-edition pencils, two unique lip colors, a multi-use bronzer, and a makeup bag to store it all, this kit is key to achieving that effortless beachy glow.

WHY YOU NEED IT: At just $75 ($198 value), this set is a total steal.

Belif Aqua Bomb Surf's Up

BEST FOR: When it comes to dry skin, Belif knows best. This set includes a full-size version of the K-beauty brand's cult-favorite moisturizer along with a radiance-boosting sleeping mask and an ultra-hydrating cleanser—three essentials for a glass-skin glow.

USERS SAID: "All three of these products knocked it out of the park for me. They're so light on the skin, and they all leave my face feeling smooth and even. A lot of other products leave a residue or are hard to wash off—not the case with the Aqua Bomb line!"

Sephora Favorites Hair Holy Grails Summer Essentials

WHAT IT DOES: If you're a hair-product hoarder, get ready for this one. With a selection of best-sellers from brands like Ouai, Living Proof, Briogeo, and more, this massive set will help you cleanse, style, condition, and smooth your locks for the prettiest summer looks.

WHY YOU NEED IT: For those of you who have been dying to try a few new products, this is an excellent way to do so. At just $38 ($111 value) for 13 top-selling products, you don't have much to lose by giving it a go.

Drunk Elephant Out of Office Set

BEST FOR: Want a post-vacation glow without the vacation? Drunk Elephant has you covered with a collection of three summertime essentials—a hydrating lip balm, bronze-boosting serum, and nourishing facial oil.

HELPFUL TIP: Mix a few drops of D-Bronzi with your favorite serum or facial oil for a sunkissed glow sans the sun damage.

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Jet Set

WHY YOU NEED IT: Contrary to popular belief, your bod deserves just as much TLC as your face. Snag yourself this set of best-sellers and get the brand's iconic moisturizer, a deeply-addictive fragrance mist, and a skin-softening shower gel—all of which are 100% safe for sensitive skin.

LOVED FOR: With notes of pistachio and salted caramel, we'd buy this set just for the irresistible scent alone—just sayin'.

Sephora Favorites Sunkissed Glow Kit

WHAT IT DOES: From Laura Mercier to Marc Jacobs, this set contains eight of the bronziest, glowiest products on the market to help you achieve that lit-from-within look—all packaged together in a cute, collectible, and reusable bag.

USERS SAID: "I absolutely love this kit! I was hesitant to buy it because I wasn’t blown away by it at first look, but now I can’t get enough! It’s also perfect for summer because the mini products don't take up too much space in my bag."
