Summer is synonymous with spontaneity — with packing up, skipping out on work early, and embracing your most carefree self. It's when you want to spend as little time indoors as possible and as much time enjoying the sunshine as the clock will allow. It's the season for simplified beauty routines and quick getaways. This is when you want to rely on a select few hero products that are the perfect combo of affordable, effective, and most importantly, easy. We asked four Bustle women to share just that: their summer beauty must-haves that can be found at Walmart. With this list, you'll be stocked up and ready for whatever impromptu beach day, road trip, or long weekend the season has in store.

"My skin is fair and dry (even in this summer!), which means I need a double-duty product that shields it from the sun and hydrates it. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion does just that. The formula is super light, has SPF 50, and is so moisturizing, I forget I'm wearing sunscreen."

Elly, Fashion Editor

"My favorite place to spend a summer afternoon is beachside with my toes in the sand. Unfortunately, this rejuvenating past-time wreaks havoc on a pedicure, so keeping a long-lasting polish on hand is essential. This Essie polish wears as well as a gel but doesn't need a lamp to cure — perfect for easy, effortless color in a pinch."

Hannah, Junior Designer

"There’s no better way to spend the summer than with my friends! So whether we’re prepping for a night out or hanging out at home, face masks are a definite must. Dr. Althea Herb Therapy Velvet Sheet Masks are always so soft and smooth on my skin, and I love the pretty packaging."

Lexi, Associate Beauty Director

"Summer can be tough on my color-treated curls. The combo of heat, humidity, and sun usually fades my auburn shade and also makes my dry ends look even drier. But most leave-in conditioners are too heavy for my fine hair... except It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditioner Product. It really is a miracle. I spray it on before the beach, after the pool, whenever! It keeps my curls feeling soft and looking moisturized and shiny without weighing them down. The best part is I swear it slows down how fast my color fades."
