Over at The B Bar‘s blog The Well, we ask our readers a question each month and anyone can answer it, this month we asked what their summer essentials were because our theme for the month is essential.

one love organics

One Love Organics Skin Savior to keep my face moisturized and One Love Organics Vitamin C body oil to keep the rest of my body moisturized and it helps me keep my tan longer! I put this on my arms, legs, and décolleté before I go to bed.

Check out what 50+ other bloggers said were their summer essentials for this month’s linkup for The B Bar!
